even this boy's last moments were not peaceful

This story, and the Carl Walker story, are just too depressing. There is almost nothing to say, I just feel numb reading and hearing about it. Everyone failed these children, parents, educators, school system..

I don't know I survived being bullied by my family members, but I thank God that I found the strength from somewhere...MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOUNG MAN...

These kids were awful. I hope they are really proud of themselves now...

I hate that to say this, but I sincerely doubt that many of his tormentors would regret their actions. Somehow I feel that the younger they may be, the more they might not be able to fully grasp the ramifications of their anti-gay attitudes and lack the sophistication and analytical skills (stretching here?)of let's say, mid-to-late teens in terms of analyzing this situation.

Plainly put, if these attitudes are embedded within their home structure,(parents, church) most likely, they might continue to perpetuate the cycle of abuse towards those of whom they consider "soft", "gay" or "sissified".

And let's keep it real, kids can be mean, vicious little cretins, when they want to be.

END RANT.

genetic heathens have no hearts, consciences, morals, minds or souls...

and preachers make these vapid demons divinely demonic by telling them that such murders of gay spirits please god...

This is truly sad. I remember when I was a kid I always had the take me as I am attitude. I have met numerous homophobes and after they meet me they have a different outlook. I know we want to do something and we can. If there is a youth organization in your town volunteer. I embrace showing gay in a positive light. We cannot blame these kids blame their parents and the teachers who let this mess happen. My heart goes out tho these little boys who may or may not even have known they were gay...

I wish these boys would be able to find some more inspiration, and not allo these other kids to push them to suacide. To me thats involuntary manslaughter. When I was a kid I didnt think about suacide, I was getting beat up alot, but I fought tooth and nail to do what I had to do. Mothers should teach their sons that suacide is not the only way out, and if they see somw harassment, forget talking to a teacher! RAISE HELL!!!! My mother would go right up to them in the school yard, "U been messin wit my son??" Or sit in the classroom. If parents got more involved there would be less of this.

This is just tragic on so many levels. My heart goes out to the families.

Mom in the South

This IS more than travesty...every parent that tolerates racist or sexually preducial comments from their children or spouse or neighbor, any person that remains silent when they can stand up for bullied children, is holding the belt that hung this boy.

I CHOSE to move my son from one school to another two days before his senior year. A school administrator had been harrassing him for years. When my son said, "Nobody will help me," I involved the police, the Asst DA, the school board... It was unbelievable how the school just buried its head in the sand. They said all the right words to placate, but had no real intention of protecting my son. AND, not a single parent I called would step up and help me, though they all had knowledge from their child of this abusive behavior from the administrator. They all said that their child would then be targeted, too. The day I moved him to another school, he said he felt like the world had been pulled off his shoulders.

LISTEN TO YOUR CHILDREN THE FIRST TIME. FIGHT LIKE HELL IS AT YOUR DOOR. DO NOT BE LIKE THESE PARENTS WHO WOULD NOT STAND UP FOR MY CHILD WITH ME.

This bullying and harrassing and "grooming" can and will happen to any child, regardless of sexual tendencies or traits.

Tijah

my heart really goes out to this litte boy. I think that we as parents need to open our eyes and stop babying our children when they are wrong, tell them when they are don't be afraid of them. Look at how this little child took his life, my GOD he is an human being no just like me and you no matter of his sex. All these other children out here who wants to be bullying and harrassing other should be ashamed of themselves now, i guess they forget that they have siblings to and if anyone bully or harrass there family they to would not like it.

FEAR IS ONLY FEAR WE NEED TO LIVE RIGHT.

WHERE IS THE JUSTICE WHEN WE NEED IT. HOW MUCH LONG ARE WE GOING TO CRY FOR JUSTICE.

Stanly

One of my friends bullied somebody today and she started crying and she went to the guidence teacher and my homeroom teacher found out and he got in trouble and i got in trouble to. Now im never ever going to bully somebody again. Don't ever bully somebody its going to come right back at you. Im 10 and iv been bullyed so dont try it Rest In Peace to Jaheem and Carl walker.
