Heartbreaking! 14-Year-Old It Gets Better Vlogger Commits Suicide

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayR.I.P.Sad SadPerezTVLady GaGa

This is beyond devastating.

Back in May, 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer from Buffalo, NY released an It Gets Better video (above), which was truly inspiring and encouraging.

Despite enduring incessant bullying at school over his sexuality, he made the effort to stay strong, and he credited Lady Gaga's Born This Way for inspiring him.

Unfortunately, even though he released such a hopeful video, the anti-gay bullying at his high school became too much for him, and he was found dead of an apparent suicide outside of his home one week after writing the following message on his blog:

"I always say how bullied I am, but no one listens. What do I have to do so people will listen to me?"

Such a tragedy! It truly baffles and disturbs us that people feel the need to torment each other over issues such as sexuality and appearance.

Let this be a wake-up call that we MUST fully commit ourselves to putting a stop to this kind of behavior!

Rest in peace, Jamey.

    Ok seriously people, we have to stop this mindset of blaming bullies and putting these videos up to say "look what you did" because that is WHY people commit suicide. There needs to be more promotion for resources for people to be able to HANDLE being treated this way and not kill themselves in a "that will show them" type of situation, because that seems to be the route of a lot of these types of things. Dont get me wrong, bullies should stop, but bullying is NOT new and will NEVER change, kids need to be able to go to school and bullying needs to be punished, but kids need to be able to be counselled to handle tough situations because being an adult does NOT make things better, its about getting stronger inside. Bullying will stop when it does not work.

    Thank you so much for getting the word out.Jamey will be deeply missed and our hearts go out to his family/friends.Bullying is still a major topic that needs as much attention brought to it as possible.God only knows how many innocent and precious lives could have been saved with a ZERO tolerance on bullying.Don't turn your cheek on someone being bullied.It takes a very weak person to bully and an even stronger person to stick up for that person who needs your help.



  3. 3

    But what's wrong with hope that bullying will end? Or at least not be bad like this? Kids do need to deal with it…but that might just escalate it more.



  4. 4

    and most importantly….RIP to this young man who just couldn't take it, and who shouldn't have had to end his life because some child(ren) was taught to be a hateful bigot.



  5. 5

    so heartbreaking. he seemed like such a beautiful person that had so much more to give the world, like one of the few who could truly help to make a change. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones and may he rest in peace, and may others learn from the wise words he spoke at such a young age.

    You have an ad before his video. You are f-ing despicable. Show some respect for this kid.



  9. 9

    Social scum like dryan1971 are the ones that we'll all do better without. But instead, people like this innocent, kind young boy are leaving us prematurely. Sad.



  10. 10

    Seriously? A commercial before I can watch the video?

    HOW DISRESPECTFUL!!



  11. 11

    Re: Bytch – agree 100$ couldn't have said it better!



  12. 12

    dryan1971, you are the kind of person who hides behind their computer, putting others down to boost your own low self esteem. I hope you find happiness within yourself so that you are able to stop trying to tear others down. And by the way, if you don't agree with Perez's lifestyle, why are you reading his site?
    This is a heartbreaking story of a beautiful young boy. Bullying needs to stop, once and for all. RIP Jamey.



  13. 13

    Was he on drugs? Where were is parents? everyone has been bullied at school. The problem isnt bullying , its mental illness. The problem with today's society is that everyone is looking for a lawsuit



  14. 14

    This is so sad !! poor boy.. why are people so mean and like to bully other.. i bet if theyre were gay they would have understand maybe.. i dont know.. this makes me so sad.



  15. 15

    welcome to the United States of Hatred.

    Re: dryan1971 – well aren't you just a shit stirring little troll lol..go get a job and a life troll.



  17. 17

    I live in Buffalo, NY and this hits so hard to home. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and friends. I have a 13 year old son who has been bullied and it is awful. I educate him every day that it does get better. I also remind him to treat others as he wants to be treated. This needs to STOP! Thank you Perez and Gaga for bringing attention to this senseless abuse.

    Re: MVPnis – the problem is bullying. dont be an asshole guys. i kind of knew jamey. this is very upsetting. you guys who say bullying isnt the problem obviously havent been bullied. you dont know what its like to be excluded for your sexuality, or to be laughed at and shit for your worst insecurities. its horrible. bullying needs to stop.



  19. 19

    Fact: Every one gets bullied.

    Things dont JUST GET BETTER! You have to work on it. Work on your own mental state. Defend yourself or change a bit.
    Find ways to make yourself happy and don't depend on others to make you happy.

    14 year olds rarely know it all. they do need great friends though, which are even tougher to find at that age.



  20. 20

    Jamey was one of the most beautiful people I knew and he did not deserve to be taken so young. He remains in our hearts and will remain there forever.



  21. 21

    My heart goes out to his family. This child did not have to die. I so wish he had a professional or someone to talk to him. May he RIP! Prayers to his family.



  22. 22

    I got bullied from age 14 thru 17 in a harsh and deplorable manner…….you take it and take it and then move on, I have no sympathy for suicide escapists……suicide affects ALL of the people that care for you and love you. If you're being bullied, suck it the fuck up and move on……..sorry Jamey but you're an asshole for giving up….R.I.P.



  23. 23

    The bullies should be jailed. His teachers who he told at school should be jailed.
    This is the only way to make it stop



  24. 24

    This selfish little asshole has nobody to blame but himself. What an evil thing to do to his family and friends



  25. 25

    Poor kid was so confused. He actually thought he was BI. Come on now, he was obviously gay and in semi denial. But seriously, these schools should be held accountable. They are state education facilities. ZERO tolerance should be the rule. You BULLY, your out!



  26. 26

    A lot of people don't realize that the bullying that gay kids face is a lot more severe and damaging than the bullying everyone else faces. For most bullied kids, they get to come home and talk to their parents, siblings, friends, etc. and draw strength from them. Unfortunately, a lot of LGBT kids are either blamed for being bullied or are too afraid to talk to ANYONE. Image the loneliness and sadness of that life. You're right, bytch, bullying will always continue. What desperately needs to change is the fact that these kids have no support system to help them through it.



  27. 27

    Re: dryan1971 – dryan… you're 40. you need to start doing better with your life.



  28. 28

    No matter how many FILTHY RICH CELEBRITIES "SAY" it gets better….IT DOES NOT

    It ONLY gets better if you are a FILTHY RICH CELEBRITY!



  29. 29

    This child made a choice…was allowed to make that choice and decided to end his OWN life. So there. Everyone wants to say how much it's "THEIR LIFE"? Okay then….this is what happens when you think it's just YOUR life. Did he have no support system at home? Since when does killing yourself solve anything? Poor kid, but what a weak nut. He would've done it regardless.



  30. 30

    Re: GayRay – And now you bully others? Yea, real miserable soul you've become.



  31. 31

    There's no end to bullying. It's about finding your inner-strength & survival of the fittest in a world where judgement makes it spin. Instead of trying to stop the bullying, help those affected by it, those whose state of mind cannot cope with the harsh reality. Support and strength is what we need.



  32. 32

    Re: dryan1971 – Hey, dipshit, I know a few people who killed themselves and NONE of them were gay. According to you, is that a good thing that they killed themselves or bad cuz they weren't gay?Re: GayRay – Where the fuck do I begin with your dumb fucking ass? Let's see: you called this young man an "asshole" then ended your dumb fucking rant with "RIP" Which is it, asswipe?
    To those who knew and loved Jamey, my prayers are with you.



  33. 33

    RIP young man.



  34. 34

    It's not bullying, its mentally ill and weak minded twats not being able to take it. It's easier to point the finger and shift the blame is all.



  35. 35

    I agree with GayRay. I have 0 sympathy for people who commit suicide. It's an act of weakness and it's pretty selfish, too. Why would you do that to everyone who loves and cares about you? And this kid had so much potential– 14 YEARS OLD! Sorry Jamey, I wish you could've put up a better fight. There's kids with cancer and starving children in africa sucking it up right now. R.I.P Jamey. Smh



  36. 36

    Re: NookiesWA – it's the mentally ill and week that need to keep bullying, day in and day out… way past the point of redundancy… because it makes them feel better about themselves that there is always a group of people they feel are inferior to their loser asses. i'm glad it makes you feel good about yourself, but this was a 14 year old that killed himself, actually ended his life(none of us know exactly what this would be like), because people treated him like shit.



  37. 37

    But as mich as I agree with GayRay, you don't call him an asshole and then say R.I.P. Sugarcoating an insult? Eh..



  38. 38

    Re: dryan1971 – Go to hell u fucker



  39. 39

    Re: MVPnis – Listen u asshole, he was 14. not on drugs! his parents talked 2 him about his sexuality and supported him 100%. I graduated from the high school he was going 2. I graduated in 2009. the kids there r horrible and the school could give a fuck. i was bullied sooooooooooo bad that i started cutting and stoped eating. its a cruel high school. where if the kids hate u they let u know. get ur fucken facts straight. ur a low life. u really are. go fuck urself



  40. 40

    This breaks my ♥ Everyone grow up and stop the hate!

    Re: GayRay – Hey, YOU called some commenter a 'loser' on another thread just because they were Canadian. If you were bullied, why do you continue it?



  42. 42

    Re: julialinn – Of course, you agree with GayRay. You're both fucking idiots. You wrote that suicide is selfish, an act of weakness and that you have zero sympathy for those who kill themselves…then you fucking end your dumb fucking post with RIP just like GayRay did. Which is it, asswipe? Pick a fucking side.



  43. 43

    people bully gay people that are showingly gay and stay away from any social groups
    you can be gay but you dont have to make it obvious and go out of your way for it
    because thats why people consider gay people different

    in my hight school in the cool peoples group we had a few gays
    everyone liked them and they were cool and the bullys never came close



  44. 44

    this breaks my heart, but to the kids that are struggling hear this, some of us parents are ensuring that our children are being raised to accept those who are different, whether they are handicapped, burned, mentally challenged and gay, I have taught my sons that it is not for us to judge and that these people need friends, don't abuse people who are already struggling. I can tell you this, had I been around this young man with my kids, he would have had male friends. guaranteed. This only reminds me and hopefully other parents how important tolerance is, how important it is to teach our kids to be the leader in a group and not a follower which means accepting those other would not. Lady Gaga has a message and I am begging kids out there to hear it and know, parents are listening, we don't want any of you to take your lives, gay or not, we have all been bullied and I was a bully but one full of remose who told my kids that I spent a long time with regret and spent a long time trying to find these people to say "I am sorry," "I was insecure and wanted to hurt someone so I could feel better about myself." My 9 year old will see this video, he already understands everyone deserves a friend. My condolences to his family. I am truly saddened by this.



  45. 45

    Whats most hilarious is people crying rivers, and condemning bullying..and in the same post, sling shit at people for having an opinion (whether or not it be popular)…I agree with BYTCH..bullies are sometimes bullies because that's all they know. So before you play the blame game, perhaps it might solve certain situations when you find ot why the bullies are that way. Killing yourself is weak, and I DO feel bad for this kid, its an awful shame..but there has to be accountability to oneself also..nothing will get better without some effort.



  46. 46

    Re: dryan1971 – You obviously have so much self hate, you need some help.



  47. 47

    Re: Flooziebabe – You seem like a wonderful parent, you're child is blessed.



  48. 48

    a child who is suffering cannot be held accountable for an action like this without the blame falling on others. Parents know when their kids are bullies, we are not stupid. Parents encourage it and a lot of attitudes come right from parents who verbalize their thoughts on issues like homosexuality etc., so don't blame a child of god, they are the innocents, we are the problem and we need to readjust our thinking to ensure that when our children go to school they come home and tell us "today I made someone's life better." That is where are responsibilities lay. A suffering child who had hope also lost hope within a week, something horrible must have happened.



  49. 49

    Ok people! He was getting help! he saw counclers and was handling it better. but people continued 2 push him 2 the edge. being brutally bullied at this high school is like a game 4 the kids. so how far they they can push some1 2 the brink. i was weak but i won that cruel cruel game they play. sadly he couldn't win. Stop being bitches and bastards about it. He was 14! kids here start bulling at fucken elementary. thats when it started 4 me and continued till i graduated. u who say suck it up. go fuck urselfs. its a cruel world. many people kill themselfs. u shouldn't b saying shit about some1 after they die. let him b remembered 4 who he was and what he stood 4. all u haters go burn in hell



  50. 50

    Why didn't he delete his formspring if that's where a lot of the bullying messages were coming from? And I'm sure any hate he got on his blog was anonymous, and anonymous messaging can easily be turned off. Bullies are cowards and 90% of them wont say shit to your face. Especially on formspring and tumblr. He had A LOT of friends who defended him him every time someone said something negative. Since the problem obviously wasn't going to solved by having supportive friends and family, then his family should have sought extensive psychological treatment for him. Or at least do some research and look for a school that's more tolerant.



  51. 51

    Rest in peace Jamey……. My condolences to his family.



  52. 52

    Re: allthegoodnamesweretaken – The thing is tho, the schools around here really don't care. our school started a club 4 gays, bi, lesbians, and straights, but the school nixed it in a week



  53. 53

    Re: Kidrock1991 – That sucks. I don't know whether or not your school was public/private, but you shouldn't be able to reject a charter for a club at a public school without due cause. And the fact that it's a gay-straight alliance isn't a good reason.



  54. 54

    Re: josestrg123 – Takes a troll to know one. FAKE ACCOUNT. Perez wants to get a lot of mileage out of this post and therefore brings in the fake members of the posse to stir up shit, you being one of them.
    +
    Suicide is tragic, especially when a youth takes their life. Death is tragic, especially involving the life of a youth. Bullying is wrong, wrong, wrong but as one poster pointed out, it happens to everyone. Chalk it up to Darwinism, Satan or human nature. None of us are exempt from having hurt others in the course of our life. Some individuals can grow a thinker skin, others are deeply sensitive or mentally ill. They cannot cope with threats to their inner core. May we all step back from this, drop the labeling of those who take their own life and be kinder in our interactions with others.



  55. 55

    Re: Kidrock1991 – What you went through really sucks, I'm sorry for that. It really boils down to parenting. We need to teach our kids that what someone's sexual preference, race, religion etc., is, is none of your business and it shouldn't affect you. I know I do.



  56. 56

    I am all for the message "it gets better" as my beloved brother killed himself 20 yrs ago because of being bullied. To this day….I would love to kill the punks who made his life at school a living hell. Funny too….his note said…"everyone said it will get better….but it doesn't…" It breaks my heart that still 20 years later, and kids still commiting suicide because these ass hole punks who think it is fun to make someone else feel miserable or different, and not accepted.



  57. 57

    OMG NOT COOL….
    RIP ANGEL OF GOD…..



  58. 58

    Re: TexasLil – it really does. then again, they parents of the kids that r bullying, think theier kids r angels and wouldn't do that. the girl who made my life hell is an angel in her parents eyes. she even said terrible shit when i had to have emergency surgery and was out of school for months. the school has had 2 suicieds in 2 yrs. we had 1 last yr and now this. something is clearly going on in that school



  59. 59

    Re: allthegoodnamesweretaken – its a public school. they said it didn't
    'represent" the school



  60. 60

    Re: Kidrock1991 – Ugh, that's horrible. I went to a private catholic high school and even we had a LGBT positive club. I can't believe public schools can still get away with crap like that.



  61. 61

    Re: Kidrock1991 – Well that girl's parents are/were in denial. If you're a parent who's truly involved in your child's life, you know what kind of child you're raising. My kid is no angel, but he's got a great heart and I'm content knowing no one will ever live a tormented life bcuz of him. Again, I'm sorry for what you went through. I hope that as the years pass, you are able to forget those awful years and have the happy life you always deserved.



  62. 62

    Re: TexasLil – Its been 2 yrs since i graduated. its still fresh in my mind. she cost me alot of friends. My bf is helping start 2 forget. But its going 2 be awhile. I wish I had known Jamey. I'd have alot 2 say 2 him about what he was going thru



  63. 63

    EVERYTHING MUST BE ABOUT HER? HUH? Fuck you Perez and Fuck Tranny Gaga . But R.I.P. to that kid. I hope he's in heaven.



  64. 64

    Re: BritneyLand – what you're saying is if he had toned down his effeminate behavior things would have went well for him… well yeah. but at 14 that isn't always easy to do, especially when people remember it in your personality from years before. but for not being able to tone down his effeminate behavior, he was punished by his peers so severely that he went home and felt he had no other option but to die.



  65. 65

    This is what makes me break down and cry. Even though I wasn't bullied the way he was, I was still verbally abused and I felt like an outcast. I never had any real friends because people thought of my blindness as a disability and some teachers treated me like crap. And even though my situation isn't anything compared to his, I still know what it feels like to not be tolerated and judged. I tell you, I'm so glad I'm not in high school anymore. And yes, I did have thoughts of killing myself because of the fact that I'm blind. And even though I'm out of high school, the fact that I'm blind will always bother me. That's why I hate leaving the house and going out in public sometimes.



  66. 66

    RIP Jamey, unfortunately bigotry and homophobia is alive and well and living in the United States of America! I was bullied at school (for different reasons) and felt suicidal at times, I don't think most people appreciate just how vulnerable people are at that age to this type of disgusting abuse. Bullying should NOT be tolerated in any way, shape or form, I was strong enough to get through it, this poor boy obviously was not. I detest bullies, they are cowards, plain and simple, and THERE ARE FAR TOO FUCKING MANY OF THEM ON THIS SITE!



  67. 67

    I live in Williamsville but was fortunate enough to not be put through Williamsville schools. However, my younger siblings weren't as fortunate. They are probably some of the worst schools as far as bullying goes. The kids are all spoiled, rich, and are never held accountable. The stuff that flies out of my 15 year old brother, who used to be a really sweet kid's, mouth on a daily basis is disgusting. And in the opposite realm, my sister who recently graduated, was tormented daily for being different and dressing differently. Something needs to be done in that school system. These kids think it's okay to torment someone to the point where they break and feel they can't bare life anymore and that is so sad, especially at 14 years old. Jamey, I wish you would have hung in there long enough to realize that life is so much better after high school. I can't imagine the pain you were in. RIP



  68. 68

    He was a kid, of course an adult would of had handled this situation differently. To a teen this is the easy solution. Suicide is not the answer, but obviously no one told him that. Some people may think it's a selfish act but how many of us are actually brave enough to commit this act. I'm not praising suicide but take a minute and think if you are brave enough to go through it. Bullying is a mental illness that has to go away, a bully bullies to escape his own problems, so they're the ones that need to get fixed. If you've never been bullied good for you, but don't talk about something you haven't been through. Maybe you've been the bully, enlighten us on how to get rid of you. And why the hell do homophobes get on this website? You must have no life or have serious issues that you need to resolve. idiotic people like that should not have the privilege to own any type of communication device that helps spread more hate. SO FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING POINTLESS POINTS OF VIEW.
    R.I.P Jamey Rodemeyer



  69. 69

    breaks my heart to hear stories like this. so sad :(



  70. 70

    When I was young and growing up kids in school were being bullied just as much as today's kids are but they weren't killing themselves over it. Perhaps kids shouldn't be coming out of the closet until they're emotionally ready to do so.



  71. 71

    Re: LuvHugzzzz – He wasn't "taken" young. He gave up and took his own life.



  72. 72

    PEREZ HILTON PROMOTES BULLIED KIDS TO COMMIT SUICIDE!! Based on this kids last post it would seem he killed himself in hopes that his desperate act will get attention. Apparently it worked because here he is on Perezhilton.com. The worst part of it all is that Perez will profit from this kid's death, apparently he had an ad before the video, I didn't see one. Perez knows what topics make him money and purposely has posts like this to rake in the dough.
    All you haters of the haters, you do realize without the trolls Perez would lose most of his revenue. The Perez detractors outnumber the supporters by far. His whole "change" was a carefully orchestrated PR stunt to make more money. He got a lot of mileage out of the whole sham and I can't believe people actually bought into it.
    If there was ever a post that comments should be turned off it would be this one and others like it. Why doesn't he? One word, $click$.
    Change? Perez is as despicable as ever. WAKE UP!!



  73. 73

    now is the time for Jamey's Law…..we need laws set up to protect our children. These bullies are out for blood now. It is time to start treating this as harassment and allow the law to punish them. I'm tired of the "kids will be kids" mentality. This is a different era. Kids are much more evil than they were in the past. We need to rally the troops and fight for anti-bullying laws.



  74. 74

    maybe the media and artist such as gaga who markets her music to kids should STOP encouraging them to be gay…not saying anything wrong with being gay and i do believe that some ppl really are but kids dont know what to think so ppllike gaga and the hollywood media should stop targeting them and telling them how to fuck…ppl should realize they are gay as and adult not as a 14 year…bullying is natural and will never stop but killing urself bc u cant handle the bullying is not



  75. 75

    This is a shame. It was the bullies faults that he was miserable but they shouldn't be blamed for his suicide. That was his choice alone. What if someone killed themselves over a breakup? Are we to blame the ex for the suicide? I think everyone is bullied at one point or another, some get it worse than others. Some people bully others after being bullied themselves but some others use it as an opportunity to treat everyone with kindness and respect and not let anyone feel left out bc they were there and they know how much it hurt them and they wouldn't want anyone else to feel that pain. Being bullied is awful but as long as you don't let it change you into a bully yourself, you could turn it into something positive. At the end of the day if you truely love yourself you wouldn't regret anything that happened in your past bc that's what made you who you are.



  76. 76

    I'm sorry, Bytch, but to blame a 14 yr old for not being able to cope with bullying - making it a "I showed you" situation is cruel. I agree that kids need to be stronger, but… bullying is not the bullying of old. It is now supported by the church, parents, and the main stream press. If you think for one minute you could live happily when most around you hate you, I think you overestimate your inner strength. The teen years are lonely enough without this kind of crap. I ask where were the teachers at this school? I think a school/parent assembly is called for where they can play this video for students and parents and have an honest and open discussion Let's include the church community who love to wave "homosexuality is an abomination" in everyone's face - well, HELLO, so is eating pork and shrimp! Abomination is a term that means "against the laws of the Jewish faith" which could have been a "dis" of Romans who were ok with homosexuality. The rule being "in able to have a strong US, you need an equally strong THEM". When this law was written there was no such thing as DNA research. It is outmoded thinking and it's time to move on to the New Testament where Christians are supposed to get their rules from - the Golden Rule, for example.

    Re: MayaGaga – Um no, I'm pretty sure we've all been bullied. The only thing you can do is change your outlook and love yourself. Can't stop bullying

    Thank you for this video and this article i have come to the conclusion that i will write a letter to respective authorities in regards to bullying, i can not sit and take all the death that bullying has taken, and i refuse to stay quiet for those that need a voice, again thank you..

    This is Perez's agenda so this is what happens. Perez is to this kid as Nancy Grace was to her "tot mom". RIP kid.



  81. 81

    I agree w/ the other posters that say that suicide isnt caused by bullying. Its caused by MENTAL ILLNESS!! Bullying has been around since the dawn of time and now is being thrust into the spotlight because a rash of gay kids started killing themselves. I feel like this is all a sick trend and a subset to "Emo Culture" where its supposedly cool to brood, cut yourself, and take your life apparently. They all need help.



  82. 82

    EVERYONE has gotten bullied at some point in their lives, and its not just restricted to fat, ugly, and gay kids. Suicide is a personal and selfish act carried out by sick individuals who need therapy. Where were this kid's parents? What about his school teachers. He was out and about blogging… clearly someone mustve noticed something.



  83. 83

    I guess it doesn't get better.



  84. 84

    My way of dealing with bullies? I fight back. Going to the principal never works; I've gotten accused of being a tattle-tale more times than I can remember. Sometimes, in fact more often than not, ya just gotta take the bull by the horns and give as good as you get.

    Look I don't give a crap if you're gay or straight, but I think it's INSANELY SELFISH to kill yourself. His poor family and friends. I could give a shit about this kid for doing that.

    Re: allthegoodnamesweretaken – I agree formspring and tumblr are awful programs to use if you're trying to work on your self esteem.

    i saw this on the news last night. i cried. it broke my heart. I hope he is finally at peace with himself

    Wow suicide is cased by a mental illness, sounds like something a Adolf Hitler would say about being Jewish. Might as well say being gay is a mental illness. Not everything has to be attributed to having a missing screw. What would you guys would of have done to help him? Some of you guys have very close minded ideas.
    And yes it is disgusting that Perez has an ad before the video

    Re: Manda756 – yes its INSANELY SELFISH, but at the same time. he's child first and clearly he didnt have the tools to keep from killing him self..

    Thoughts and prayers going out to his family.
    I have a daughter who was bullied for various reasons. Regardless of what people say it has a lasting effect. She has been diagnosed with depression, and social anxiety. Medication helps keep her focused but without a great support system I could see how things go downhill quickly. Parents and teachers need to listen to their children, no bullies will not stop and sometimes you can't be strong and 'just get over it', society needs to be their for our children.

    This is sad. Poor kid. Suicide is not the answer! I never understood why someone would want to commit suicide! SUICIDE WILL NOT MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER!

    Re: PowerMeUp – I hear you, but 14 is hard for everyone. I had it really bad, and I didn't kill myself. I think it's crazy to assume at 14 you shouldn't have to take some responsibility for your actions because you're a child. It seems young to us because it was so long ago… but honestly I remember 14 well and I never would have done this to anyone despite what I was going through.

    Re: dryan1971 – I reported you to the police.

    Re: Manda756 – well thats is you and am me, but we're not him, everyone isnt the same person.. From where he was sitting, could u even relate with even grown people and children a like putting you down for something you cant help and for something that was your truth.. putting you dont on the tv and on some blog like this everyday, saying youre not family, no one should care about u cause youre this BS claim that youre the small %….. everyday in your face, youre nothing, youre the joke, youre baby that no one wanted, everyday…

    Re: Mushu Baby – Suicide does not make your life better? I would assume that this is quite obvious as you *end* your life. It's not done to make one's life better, it's done to stop the pain - whatever it is that's causing it.
    Re: PowerMeUpRe: Manda756Re: Tash20Re: GayRayRe: MVPnisRe: ScatterRe: julialinn – A person who believes that suicide is a selfish and weak act caused by "mental illness", is a person with an extreme lack of empathy, insight, knowledge and intelligence. You're statements are quite ironic, as you stand out as the "selfish" ones, the "assholes", the "weak", the "unsympathetic" and most of all, the ones with a "mental illness". But when you lack what you lack, you most likely also lack self-insight. Good for you, then you never have to see what you truly are.

    These sorts of situations can be prevented. Seriously, just talk to someone…ANYONE if you feel like something's wrong. May Jamey rest in peace. And may such a tragedy like this never, ever take place again!



  97. 97

    Re: julialinn – Isn't that exactly what you did. The way your first message reads, sounds like you're saying Jamey should have sucked it up and dealt with it…that he was a "twat" because he was unable to do that. Then you wish him RIP….Hello pot….kettle called….



  98. 98

    Re: dryan1971 – do everyone a favor and go kill yourself right now. you have no purpose of life you disgusting piece of shit.



  99. 99

    this is so horrible. very, very sad. is there anyway we can blame gaga for this?? i really think she deserves some of the blame.



  100. 100

    Kids these days are going from bad to worse. It's sad that he felt like he couldn't turn to anyone. Any kind of bullying is wrong and needs to stop!
