    This poor kid, those fuckers that picked on him should rot in hell, and all those people that did nothing while he blatantly asked for help should have their asses kicked.



  2. 2

    whoa this is so sad….thats why when somebody picks on my kids i go of on them fuckers…and then go to the school make sure they something about it…

    Here is my take and it may be a little harsh, but it's the truth. Bullying has been around forever! rather than take your own life, fight back!! If you have the balls to take your own life why not fight back, even if you get beat up, take martial arts classes and learn to defend yourself. There will always be bullies that is not going to end, learn how to deal with it.

    This is such a sad situation. I saw his parents on Anderson Cooper's show. I've never understood the bullying mentality. Why can't they just leave people alone?

    That really is awfully sad. Poor kid. RIP.

    There needs to be one universal zero tolerance policy federally mandated and governed.



  7. 7

    This is so sad. I watched a movie on Netflix last night called MAD WORLD about teen bullying. Everyone should see this movie.

    I do not understand the bullying mentality either
    Rather than kill yourself yu should fight back
    Even if you get beat up atleast the bully knows you are not going to take shit from anyone
    Why cant people beleive in theiir true self and not listen to others
    Its a shame

    I'll never understand bullying or why a child gives up on life but I do know this needs to stop. With social media around things are one step worst these days and it's not getting better. Something needs to be done.

    What's wrong with american society?? that's horrible news, i am form Argentina and even though gays suffer some kind of discrimination they can live freely and happy. Do you really think that a law can change this kind of suicides??? it´s society that has to change, beggining with education from the parents at home, the change must come from society not from a law.

    The problem is not bullying. EVERYONE gets bullied. This was a mentally ill young man with horrible parents that did not get him help.

    What an evil person this kid is, and now his deadbeat parents are just looking for a lawsuit



  12. 12

    This is mental illness issue NOT a bullying issue. This kid would have offed himself when he didnt get his way for something else.

    Why? Because he was selfish and mentally ill?

    His parents need to be4 locked up for not getting him help and treating his depression



  13. 13

    So much for the "it gets better " campaign (BS).

    Arrogant, self serving, attention whoring celebs doing their part to ruin the lives of young gay people.

    Hate will never end. Bullying will never end. People are immature, people can take their own pain out on others. Look at Perez, Mr. Born This Way. He WAS and STILL is a bully. He thinks by talking anti-bullying and running a celeb site that it is OK what he does. He says he will be SASSY, but he is just calling it another word.

    Schools have always allowed bullying. Until the schools step up young kids, without the emotional maturity to handle the bullying will continue to take their own lives. Sad, but true

    I believe this boy was bullied and my heart aches for him and his family. I am not blaming the victim, but he was doing certain things he said he probably shouldn't do like the formspring account. He was seeing a therapist, social worker and the school counselor. When do we say this could be part of a mental disorder?

    I guess it doesn't get better lol

    Re: Rocketboy – Because not everybody has the same inner strength. If 15 kids tell 1 kid that he's worthless… all the inner strength and belief in the world is not going to help you. Trust me on this. Psychological damage is far far more dangerous because it cannot be seen.



  18. 18

    Re: Rohan – Exactly the opposite, in fact. Perhaps this young child has died to only further solidify the ground that bullying and tormenting others will not be acceptable. I don't want to make him a martyr but because of this tragedy my strength to fight back against those who push others down has now become even stronger.



  19. 19

    Perez…the bullies didn't kill this boy…as horrible as bullying is it is not deadly…some people are ill equipped to live in this world…Russell Armstrong comes to mind…eradicating bullying will NOT eradicate suicide…depressed people need counseling and perhaps, medication…



  20. 20

    …spiceboy, each and every suicide should be motivation for those that are depressed to seek help…period…those that lack the inner strength that you write about are ill prepared to live in this world and we cannot protect them from themselves…if the bullying at school had not been the catalyst, this boy would have found another reason to tip the scales of depression…no one, and I mean NO ONE, kills themselves because of someone else…they choose this permanent solution because of their depression…seemingly untreated depression, in this case.



  21. 21

    Those bully's can live with what they did with the rest of their life, whether they can even begin to comprehend what they have made this boy do. And when they finally do realise, they will still have 'blood on their hands' which they will never be rid of.



  22. 22

    Terribly sad and tragic. It is a heartbreaking story. BUT…a couple of things: Why didn't Jamey's mother/father do more to remove him from his tormentors? Maybe they did all they could do, but I don't see any actions on their part in this story. If it was my kid, I would not have given him an effeminate name, I would have removed him from school if necessary, home schooled him till the hate blew over and would have removed access to hate via cyber-bullying. Most importantly, I would have ensured that he had counseling for depression. Poor Jamey was screaming (silently) for counseling.

    Secondly, Lady Gaga is meeting with Obama about this? Did he move his schedule around to accommodate her or vice versa? Love Obama or hate him; love Gaga or hate her, their meeting is going to go over with the media like a lead balloon.



  23. 23

    Just shows the message "It gets better" is bullshit. For some people it doesn't get better, for some people it never gets better so are better off dead.



  24. 24

    Let's stop looking at the details of his personal situation and realize that this is happening to kids everywhere because of bullying!! This NEEDS to stop.



  25. 25

    Re: youllneverno – I see what you are saying but stop short of agreeing with you for fact that it is not the ONLY catalyst. You saying that some are ill equipped to deal with this world is not your call to make. Those that are ill equipped need stronger people to step up to the plate for them. It's one of the many things that separate us from animals. Our ability to be compassionate. No human being should ever think, "Welp you weren't strong enough kiddo. Sorry you offed yourself." Furthermore, bullying might be the trigger that pushes an already depressed person to suicidal solutions and shouldn't be tolerated. It seems as though you are using the logic because bullies will always exist we should just let it be, shrug our shoulders and turn a blind eye. If I see somebody being bullied, I can assure you I will not do that - each and every time.

    Re: klion6 – I agreed with you until you said better off dead. He didn't realize the boys were jealous he had all these girlfriends. It's the thinking. Even being gay that should not be offensive. That's like telling me oh, you must be a white girl. Thank you brainiacs for pointing out the obvious. Should not about making laws to take away freedoms but to educate and give the mental tools necessary to deal with it. We are in a society that thinks you should be happy 24/7 (lol) and if you feel bad no one wants to be around you. So kids don't express themselves like they should. They internalize it and then hence this outcome.



  27. 27

    …no spiceguy…I don't think bullying should be tolerated because it will always exist…but, I do not agree with the idea that one person can "make" another person commit suicide…it just doesn't happen…a depressed person will kill themselves because being dead seems like a better route than being alive…I do not claim to make the call as to who is ill prepared for this life…they (those that commit suicide) make that determination for themselves…this young man was a juvenile and it is scary dangerous to point fingers at outside parties when he depended on his parents for protection…they are "supposed" to provide medical intervention, to speak to and speak to and speak to (or remove and home school) school officials…to monitor his personal activities…to point blame at second parties removes the focus from where it should be…MEDICAL INTERVENTION…and, there are cases where medical intervention will not work..



  28. 28

    .sometimes, a person just doesn't want to be alive…as for their being an epidemic of suicides due to bullying…it is a known (proven through studies) that young people mimic behaviors that seem to be met with successful results…look at the love and sadness poured on the cases that have been publicized…a young person considering suicide has an added element of emotional immaturity…and, it is often reported by those that attempt (but do not succeed at) suicide that they wanted everyone to be sorry or to miss them or they wanted to cause pain to those that had pained them…added to severe depression, wow…what a deadly mix…the other children bullying him were not in a position to help him, even if they had stopped…but, his parents were…if (and that's a BIG if) he was "savable" at all…

    This is sad, but I don't think you can just go to the President and ask for a law that makes all bullying illegal. "Bullying" is a very general term. It would have to be decided what all fits the definition of "bullying". Not to mention there would have to be a way to monitor it, which is impossible short of having cameras in every single corner of the nation, which the citizens certainly wouldn't allow. And anyway she'd have to go to congress if she really wanted a law, since they are actually the ones who write them. And even if it was illegal, it wouldn't stop bullying. Most drugs are illegal, but millions of people still do them everyday. While her intentions are good the statement "Bullying must become illegal" is certainly naive and rather uninformed. A law simply will not stop bullying. I say, the only real weapon we have against hatred is knowledge. Fear is born of ignorance, and hatred is born of fear. I say, we educate the people. That will surely be the most effective solution, and even that will not eliminate all hatred. It's simply not possible.



  30. 30

    Also, I happen to know the president was in my hometown today, so I don't know if she really did have this alleged "meeting".



  31. 31

    What people dont realize is that these kids are looking for anything to make the pain go away, to feel nothing, not knowing that suicide is the permanent solution. Unforetunately, you can't solely blame those who bully because they do not know how far someone will go. In the end, Jamey couldn't cope and gave up. I don't think he loved himself enough to fight through the pain, becuz when you don't love urself, no one else will. America needs a a lesson in self love and tolerance and respect for others becauz 8x times out of 10 pple who bully, bully becuz something is wrong and they have their own problems.



  32. 32

    In a way, he did fight back.
    I don't think any of the bullies will ever forgive themselves. Watch probably seemed harmless to them made a young boy kill him self. It awful but I do not think 14 year old boys are mature enough to realize that there action can have horrible consequent.
    I hope Jeremy is in a good place, and let him rest in peace. To his family & friends: Good luck

    depressed people need professional help in form of therapy - not a delusional bitch like caca "meeting up with the president". the story about that kid is heartbreakingly sad, but show me a kid that wasn`t bullied in school. anyway, if there`s one thing that doesn`t help, it`s empty promises from tranny caca trying to milk this kid`s death for another few seconds in the spotlight.



  34. 34

    Of course Lady Gaga would use this, of course.



  35. 35

    This makes me so sad. I wish there was a way to turn back time when things like this happen. Hopefully this will be an eyeopener for people who bully other people.



  36. 36

    gaga killed him. just like she killed those cats. ugh. she's such a flop and fraud.



  37. 37

    Re: hoochpit – I know you're rightfully upset but violence is not the solution to this. The only solution is to punish those bullies and set them as examples so this won't (hopefully) happen again. Jamey had alot of friends and alot of support and he was looking forward to spirit week right before he died. Something happened Sunday that caused him to commit suicide. We'll never know for sure what made him kill himself.
