Jamey Rodemeyer's Bullies Are Still Bullying Even After His Death!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayBarack ObamaSad SadLady GaGa


This is so sad.

Even after Jamey Rodemeyer took his own life, the bullies who made his life a living hell at school are STILL spewing hatred toward his spirit.

They're audaciously saying things like, "you're better off dead."

Absolutely ridiculous.

We NEED to make sure his death wasn't in vain! We NEED to fight for him!

Our thoughts are with you always, little monster.

Check out this interview his parents gave to the Today show (above).

    he shoulld of followed the sound advice of our fearless leader.." Shake it off. Stop your whinnin'. Stop compainin'. Stop grumblin'. Stop cryin'.



  2. 2

    thats sick what horrible people



  3. 3

    HORRIBLE KIDS. absolutely DISGUSTING.



  4. 4

    STOP fucking calling a dead kid a little monster!! wtf is wrong with you, asshole?



  5. 5

    Those kids are sick and need to be taught a lesson. However, I think it is the most important that parents and teachers step up and do something about it, and kids shouldn't be afraid to tell parents and teachers. Bullies are just bullies, they are kids who are afraid of authority no matter how tough they seem. If I were a mother and my kid is being bullied to that degree, I would step up, call the police, talk to the principal of the school and get the bullies expel. Or I would even have some alone time with those bullies beat them up myself cause I love my kid so much I would go to jail for them.



  6. 6

    That is really really f-ed up.



  7. 7

    "We" need to "FIGHT" for him? WTF? Jamey Rodemeyer is DEAD. He is beyond saving or fighting for. Where were YOU, Mario, when he was alive and in need? Why is it that you only exploit events after the fact, instead of being an active and useful part of prevention? What some people are saying about him is indeed cruel to the living he left behind, but you can't bully a dead person. His death is no more important than the death of anyone else. If he believed in the "it will get better" BS, he'd still be here, fighting the fight. His death serves no purpose to any cause, and has brought on nothing but pain for his family. Suicide is cowardice and selfishness.

    Re: pollopicu – You just read that blurb and THAT'S what you're concerned about!?!?!?!?



  9. 9

    These kids need to be put in jail. Thats the only way youre going to stop this.
    seriously, "sensitivity counselling" doesnt work



  10. 10

    Fight for him? How about he should of learned how not to be a pushover little bitch? Bullies bully because they know the person they are teasing will not fight back..Sorry, Fighting back with words, and lawsuits, and laws against bullying isn't going to work..Fighting back with your fist WILL.



  11. 11

    BULLIES bully because they know there's no consequences to their actions..Bullying has become mainstreamed now and bullies know they are successful at doing it. Instead of raising kids to be giant pansies raise them to haul off and back hand the ever living crap out of whoever is running their mouths to them. Thats the problem with this generation..Not only are they pansies and borderline retarded they are also attempting to castrate boys in the process..Having your kid turn the other cheek and to tattle on a bully will only be setting him up to be a pushover in life…I'm so tired of hearing the "blah blah hes getting bullied" and "violence is never the answer crap"

    If you're a parent with half a brain and you're reading this..if your son comes home from school and tells him hes getting bullied..You tell him to punch the other kid in the mouth, and even thou the school we punish him by giving him a short suspension that he will not get punished at home…You'd be surprised what a confidence booster it is.



  12. 12

    Re: ingrid2010 – and thinking like that is exactly why kids get bullied. Instead of trying to sue them, or fight your kids battles for them you should be telling them to fight back..

    I swear to fuck what is it with this idiotic generations need to pansyfy and castrate males..I find most people just raising their kids to be pathetic little twats. Raising them up to be under the impression their feelings will never get hurt,etc



  13. 13

    i hope these bullies are exposed and i don't give a FUCK how young they are, they need to be publicly shamed or they'll never learn a damn thing. if it were up to me, they'd be strung upside down and have their skin whipped to a bloody pulp. yeah, i said it- call me a monster but all i say is DUH!!! (see name)



  14. 14

    Those kids that chanted at the dance that they were glad he died should be EXPELLED immediately!!!! BE A LEADER.. NOT A FOLLOWER!!!!!!!



  15. 15

    Has anyone stopped to think kids emulate adults? Politicians go out of their way to trash their opponents. You've got entertainment rags who just pull stuff out of their fourth point of contact to trash actors and actresses. Yet we rage about kids bullying? Lead by example.



  16. 16

    Ann Curry is the WORST interviewer EVER.. I feel so bad for these folks. That poor kid was trying to be so strong. But Ann why didnt you ask about the bullies. Where are they now? What happened at the dance with their daughter and the bullies saying shit to her. So many more questions to ask instead of talking about their clothing TWICE..



  17. 17

    WTF is the point of the Obama tag on this story?



  18. 18

    I don't bully anyone, but I do stand up for them. Last year the kids at the bus stop on my street were outta control, I'd watch from afar, but then stormed down there & lite into them. One would even throw water bottles at cars passing by. Yes, I called the school, police, etc… Of course they didn't get caught in the act by the police, but I put the fear in them not to do such things OR to fuk with other kids. The water bottle thrower was always in trouble, his mom told me she was going to ship him off to his dad…yea, ok..problem solved? Whatever! Some parents just don't give a shyt what their little brats do! I'd like to fuk em up, but I'm not going to jail behind some little fuking brat.



  19. 19

    Re: NookiesWA – Ding ding ding! We have a winner. There have always been bullies and there always will be bullies. You wanna know how to deal with them? you don't post a video on YouTube crying about them. you don't have Lady CaCa fight your battle for you. You learn how to defend yourself. Stop being a fucking victim.



  20. 20

    *sigh* This is our future here. Insolent little bastards, scene kids, it's all disgusting. I can guarantee you some of those that went to his funeral were ones that were bullying him as well. It happened when I was in high school. A kid died that was nerdy, and all the popular kids came to his funeral and made a spectacle of themselves. The next day he was long forgotten.



  21. 21

    i like how the father said it doesn't matter if you are for or against gay marriage, you shouldn't bully another person bc of it. not an exact quote but close enough…i am not in favor of gay marriage at least through the church nd blah blah blah BUT no child should ever feel like they have to kill themselves in order to escape the taunting. this boy was just bullied he was harassed and pushed to his limit. i don't think there will ever be a law put into place but i do think that government mandated lectures on bullying should be put into place. the more focus schools have on bullying the less likely bullies are able to push someone to their limit. those kids deserve to be punished.



  22. 22

    These kids just don't realize they are doing an incredible amount of damage. They think it's a big joke and don't get the severity of the situation. IT ISN'T FUNNY! IT IS SERIOUS!
    Parents are going through the hearbreak of losing their children because kids can't be tolerant and leave things alone. It is easy to just say "man up and deal with it" or " fight back" but not all kids are like that. This is 2011…society needs to catch up. My condolences to the Rodemeyer family and all other families dealing with this.



  23. 23

    Re: Beautiful Disaster311 – Keep in mind that there are all the kids of people who claim that they're good parents.



  24. 24

    Why the fuck is the mother wearing gaga shit? what is wrong with this world??????



  25. 25

    Re: SpiceGuy – Yes, that's what I'm concerned about, because that is what is wrong with our society, calling a dead kid a monster, allowing the media, tv, music, movies be imbedded into the memory of a life? This seems to be more about lady fucking gaga than about a dead kid. it's like this is about publicity for a star than about bullying. it's only about bullying for about a minute. then it's lady gaga this, lady gaga that. Even the mom has been hypnotized and in the wake of her OWN sons fdeath is wearing lady agag stuff. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!!?? If my kid died I would never in a million years where a celebrity name in the memory of my child. Don't you see how insane that is?>



  26. 26

    Where are the parents of the bullies? There kids are behaving terribly and it appears their parents are doing nothing. If I had even thought of doing half of what we know these kids have done, I would still be grounded…and I am almost 30. Seriously, something has to be done to hold the parents to count.



  27. 27

    I get the whole "embrace the monster moniker" but shut the fuck up Mario. This was a 14 year old child, not a monster. And harrassment of anybody should be addressed, maybe people are just to desensatized to the word bully - which is typically associated with another child (or in Mario's case, a big man baby).



  28. 28

    Opps! Their kids not There kids.



  29. 29

    I get the whole "embrace the monster moniker" but this was a 14 year old child, not a monster. And harrassment of anybody should be addressed, maybe people are just to desensatized to the word bully - which is typically associated with another child (or in Mario's case, a big man baby). But most of all stop creating a caricature of LBGT as monsters. Mario if GaGa created a platform it is HER RESPONSIBILITY to engage actual leaders in the behavioral health and child psychology field to implement actual evidence based change. F'n crying in your cheerios does not a policy make.



  30. 30

    I have a problem with this! This is so wrong. Why bully the family? I wish someone would just give them a taste of their own medicine. They are little shites that could use a good beat down by their OWN PARENTS! And if the parents can't do it allow ME!

    I don't think they will ever find peace with these EVIL BULLIES! Until the school or parents stand together and say this is wrong to bother this family it will not stop.
    This is the most evil thing I have ever heard of. RIP Jamey.
    Peace out.

    Re: pollopicu – I agree … these parents are goimg to wake up after the hoopla dies and realize it was their child they lost, not some character in a Lady Gaga PSA. (to be quite honest, they could just be holding on to their child tangibly through all this, I just can't imagine losing my son, with all crap being blown my way from people who are looking for ratings)



  32. 32

    I honestly do not understand this kind of hate. It makes me so angry that in this day and age there are still people out there who think this way. One of the kids in the daycare I work at likes to dress up like a girl and dance and sing his little heart out. He can't do this at home, his mum and dad don't like it and won't let him. The rest of the kids think he's great. I always tell the kids that the world would be a pretty boring place if everyone was the same, and they seem to agree.



  33. 33

    Re: ingrid2010 – I AM SO WITH U! THATS WHAT I WAS GONNA WRITE, SOMEONE NEEDS TO TEACH THEM A LESSON IN HUMANITY. AND I KNOW PEEPS WILL SAY THATS NOT THE ANSWER, WELL THEN LETS GET SOME JAIL TIME FOR SOMEONE, EITHER KIDS OR PARENTS. JUST LIKE THOSE TWO BULLIES THAT CAUSED (I CANT REMEMBER HIS NAME) JUMPED OFF THAT BRIDGE, THEY R BEING PROSECUTED FOR POSTING THOSE PICTURES. THANKS INGRID FOR STARTING THE BACKLASH AT THOSE KIDS, MAYBE IN SOME WAY THEY WILL GET PAYBACK………………………..WE CAN HOPE. P.S. I, AS YOU HAVE 2 KIDS GROWN BUT STILL I WOULD WILLINGLY GO TO JAIL FOR THEM! CAUSE U AND I SHOULD HAVE SOME ALONE TIME (JUST TO TALK hee hee) AND SHOW THEM JUST HOW ANTI-HUMANE THEIR ACTIONS WERE.

    Re: buck – HEY BUCK BACK OFF. WE KNOW U MEAN PEREZ. YOUR HIDING YOUR "DONT CARE BOUT THE KID" BEHIND YOUR STATEMENT



  35. 35

    Re: pollopicu – LITTLE MONSTERS IS WHAT GAGA CALLS HER FANS. WILL U ALL PLEASE JUST THIS ONCE, LEAVE PEREZ ALONE. HE ACTUALLY FEELS TERRIBLE BECAUSE IT'S LIKE LOSING A FRIEND, NOT WHAT BUCK THINKS. THAT'S ALL.



  36. 36

    It's so weird, but I have never actually heard of bullying gay students at my school. Why? A good 15% of my school is bi/gay. Some of the more popular kids in my school are gay. Openly gay. Like, wear a scarf and carry a man purse while talking about how hot Taylor Lautner looked in his last movie gay. No one even notices or cares when someone comes out of the closet at my school. I don't get why some kids make a big deal out of it. So what, they like people who have their genitalia? Get over it.



  37. 37

    Re: NookiesWA – YOU LOOK LIKE A HO. AND YOUR MOUTH PROVES IT. I HOPE U GET A BIG DOSE OF KARMA.



  38. 38

    why are the parents seem like they dont even care about him so much !! like no tears or anything.. and why would his sister go to a party while her brother is dead.. that doesnt make sense.. it pisses me off that her brother died and she went to a party to have fun.. sick !! and the kids that bully him as well..



  39. 39

    Re: hubwoof – SINCE THIS IS THE ONLY WAY YOU KNOW HOW TO RESPOND, I'LL DO IT TO YOU. SHUT UP WITH THE ALL CAPS FUCKTARD!!! IT DOESN'T MAKE YOUR POINT MORE VALID!!! UNDERSTAND!!! YOU JUST LOOK STUPID!!!



  40. 40

    JUST ONE MORE THING TO THOSE OF U WHO ARE IGNORANT (AND U KNOWWHO U ARE) GAGA HAS BEEN INVOLVED A LOT IN ANTI-BULLYING ALL THE WAY TOTHE WHITE HOUSE FOR A MEETING WITH OBAMA, SO DONT TELL ME CELEBS DO IT FOR EXPOSURE. IM SURE THAT SOME OF U ARE STILL BABIES YOURSELVES, SO U PROBS DONT REMEMEBER RYAN WHITE A FEW YEARS BACK. SIR ELTON JOHN WAS SO TOTALLY COMMITTED TO HELPING THAT KID THEN AND NOW STILL AFTER HIS DEATH. AND SIR ELTON SO DOES NOT NEED THE EXPOSURE, HE'S A HUMAN BEING WITH COMPASSION AND A STRONG WILL TO FIGHT AGAINST THE VERY THINGS THAT ARE ALL SET UP TO HARM OUR CHILDREN. SO RE=READ YOUR COMMENTS, MAKE SURE U REALLY MEAN THEM, THEN GO HOME AND LOOK IN THE MIRROR AT YOURSELF YOUR MOUTH IN PETICULIAR. THAT'S ALL



  41. 41

    Re: hubwoof – Are you serious? a friend? so every gay person in the fucking world is his friend? you are so gullable and ignorant. How old are you? 14? What perez is doing is making former gay supportes like me think again. The point that lady gaga calls her fans that IS THE POINT!!! the kid is dead, why oh fucking why is she figuring into this. In 3 weeks she won't even remember his name. Sadly, no one who never met him will.



  42. 42

    Re: Shelah – SORRY TO DO CAPS OFFENDS U, I HAVE GLAUCOMA AND IT HELPS ME TO SEE BETTER WHEN IM TYPING. APPARENTLY U ARE ONE OF THOSE BULLIES WHO PUT JAMEY IN HIS GRAVE. AND USING THE TARD WORD MAKES U ILLITERATE AND STUPID. CAREFUL HONEY YOUR COLOR IS SHOWING.



  43. 43

    But his death WAS in vain.



  44. 44

    Re: hubwoof – Yeah, You're one huge idiot. Don't attempt to argue it. You're a dumb ass. That picture is of a celebrity and her name is Jessica Alba LMAO. Don't you feel like a pretty big idiot? Even if that was me your insult would be completely retarded.."You look like a ho and your mouth proves it"..Are you a fucking retard?



  45. 45

    Re: NookiesWA – What happened to you in your life to make you such an incredibly ugly human being? Whatever it is or was, you lost. You've become like the people you hate.



  46. 46

    Re: La Garse – NO. suicide is not being selfish. Suicide is the only way out when people keep bullying you. haven't you been reading or watching the news lately about gay teens commiting suicide because they are bullied. what other choice do they have? their bullied and no one listens. those who commit suicide are not being selfish. they just needed help. which no one was there.



  47. 47

    Re: pollopicu – because gaga actually cares about him. i guess your one of the bullies too. what you love bullying gay kids so they can commit suicide? have fun in hell bullies.



  48. 48

    Jamey's parents seems very passive, and probably weren't resourceful enough to help him. People who bully someone to the point where they take their own life, and then continue to taunt those left behind by the suicide, are clearly not normal people. They most likely do not have the capability to feel remorse, and there seems to be no consequences for them after what they've done. And what have they done? They killed someone, they really did.
    I find it disturbing to see the hold Gaga has one these vulnerable kids, they would do more or less anything she said. They can't see how someone who truly believed in equality, would not create a new hierarchy *and* put themselves on top. She doesn't care beyond what she can gain by having their support, which is obvious to those who can see her blatant narcissism.



  49. 49

    Us little monsters are a community and when we lose one, we all feel the pain. Bullying is for losers. RIP Jamey.



  50. 50

    I heard about this the first day it happened. I teach college and I have made it an effort to educate each one of my students about Jamey. Suicide is the 3rd cause of death of 18-24 years old. But what is being done to help them? Type in 'teen suicide" on youtube and you will see videos of people who put on a 'face' of normality. I can't reach everyone, but the 180 students that I teach have an understanding of bullying and how words do matter. People say, "suicide is a choice." Yes, it's a choice, but 95% of suicides occur with people with a psychological disorder, whether it be depression, bipolar disorder, etc. What does a 14 year old know about life. Yes, he made the choice, but he also was lead to a decision, he felt, was the only way. I just moved to the Bible Belt of NC. I have never in my life seen bullying and hatred against gays. There is an underlying message that comes from this area. I could go on and on, but I just want you to know, whoever reads this, that 180 students in a college in NC, know of Jamey and hopefully, they will continue to spread the message that bullying is not acceptable. -Christopher D.



  51. 51

    even alive people encourage him to kill himself wtf is wrong with the bullies that just crosses the line.



  52. 52

    Little monsters, can you please explain why Lady Gaga has teamed up with Dr. Dre, a homophobic individual who has commonly used and strongly supported the use of anti-gay slurs? Could it be because she wants to make extra money of her headphones and needs his endorsements? It's funny how she immediately condemns bullying but then jumps into bed (figuratively) with Dre, a man that has made money off of homophobia (see Eminem, Dre's protege). I was outed back in middle school during the peak of Eminem and Dre's homophobic popularity. I remember the names, the insults, the swirlies, and my pitiful attempts to act straight by rapping and shooting back slurs. I simply can't get around the fact that she has become the face of LBGT rights but associates herself with Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, who really brought this homophobia to be extremely prevalent within our schools.

  53. 53

    Those kids should have been expelled from school. That kind of behavior is unacceptable!!



  54. 54

    Re: Hypocrite87 – You can be a non-monster all you want, just please, don't flaunt it in front of everyone XD



  55. 55

    And as always, this is gonna be turned into a "don't hate/bully LGBT people" fight, instead of a "don't hate/bully anyone"
    please, just don't turn this into an exclusively gay issue. EVERYONE is bullied, so bullying MUST stop for EVERYONE, not just LGBT.



  56. 56

    WTF?!?!? "Bullying must become illegal"? says lady gaga. Look, bullying is nothing new. It's been around forever. It's how you handle it. Fight back!! take martial arts, whatever it takes. I've said this before, but if you have the balls to kill yourself at least try and fight back. I think everyone has been bullied once in their lives. I know this is sad, but seriously kids need to learn how to deal with it.



  57. 57

    stop calling him a little monster. thats so weird. he was more than just a gaga fan. ur kinda trivilizing all of this by doning things like that



  58. 58

    Re: pollopicu – you're an idiot. it's what lady gaga's followers call themselves to embrace their individuality

    Re: La Garse – you're an asshole. suicide is not cowardice. you don't know what it's like. people feel so low that they think the only way out is suicide. his parents & many others want to make sure that more CHILDREN & TEENS don't feel the need to do this because of other idiotic children raised by ignorant parents. this is a horrible sick story, one that we've heard far too many times as a nation this year.



  59. 59

    Re: Rocketboy – there's a difference between the bullying of the past & bullying today. i agree that laws won't stop it, & there will always be bullies, and yes if i was a parent i would make my child take martial arts, boxing, change schools, etc. the point here is that there is not even any RESPECT for another life. you don't like someone, fine i don't care but there is no need or right to go around making others feel so horrible about themselves that think the only way out is death. & when young teenagers are saying "you're better off dead" TO another member of the family is beyond disrespectful & disgusting behavior.

    i'm only 21 & the bullying is far worse now than ever. it will never be gone but something needs to be done to change the thinking that it is acceptable. it wasn't then, & it shouldn't be now.



  60. 60

    you what all you fuckers talking shit about this poor child need to rethink your fuckin words before you write them!!!!!!!! look obama needs to get off his ass and make a law for this child….. Jamey did not need to kill himself and if it werent for those fuckin kids picking on him beacuase he was gay he would still be here….. so when your time comes i hope you all get what you deserve for talking shit about someone who took his own life. he did it beacause everyone told him it would make the world a better place and you what it fuckin doesnt cause now this child has no life….. but the ones who made him take his life get to fuckin to have a fuckin life and it makes me sick. go listen to rise against make it stop(september's childern) than youll all fuckin understand how these kids feel. HAVE A FUCKIN HEART YOU BUNCH OF HEARTLESS BASTRADS…. I HOPE IF YOU HAVE KIDS YOU DONT RAISE THEM TO BE LIKE YOU A BUNCH OF IDOITS WHO ARE GONNA DESTORY A NATION. THESE KIDS DESERVE TO LIVE AND LADY GAGA MAKES MUSIC KIDS CAN RELATE TO BEACUASE SHE KNOWS WHATS IT LIKE TO GET BULLIED. I BET GROWING UP ALL OF YOU POSTING HATEFUL COMMENTS WERE BULLIES OR WERE BULLIED SO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIVES WHILE THE NATION GRIVES ANOTHER LOSS OF A CHILDS LIFE. SO FUCK ALL YOU HATERS AND YOU ALL CAN TO HELL IF YOUR POST HATEFUL THINGS BOUT THIS WONDERFUL CHILD



  61. 61

    Re: ingrid2010 – And what do you expect the school, teachers and Principal to do? Schools are for teaching. Morales are learned at home. Too many parents expect schools to raise their children. Just ask any teacher. If your child is bullied, you go to the source. You remove harassing emails and texts. You go to the parents of the bullies. You take a leave from your job to be there full time for your child and have open communication. Most importantly, if you have a sensitive child who is a target, you teach them skills to fight back. Verbally and physically.
    .
    I love the number of comments about this case that call for police action when so many people on this site as well as the blog owner repeatedly denigrate them.
    .
    I also love the demand for blood…an eye for an eye…from people who certainly will tell others that they are against the death penalty or who advocate human rights.



  62. 62

    Re: gleek!92 – Was Glee too emotional for you tonight? Obama needs to drop more pressing issues like THE ECONOMY, WAR and HEALTHCARE to create a law to stop bullying? Why don't you read a little Orwell, take your Soma and become a drone. It's the master plan. You can get a head start.



  63. 63

    Re: youfools – No you fucking people are idiots for calling a dead kid a little monster. Yea maybe if makes sense to your dumb ass but to everyone else it's disrespectful and sick.. "RIP sweet little monster"…. GROSS! You're too stupid to see the irony ! God people are such idiots!



  64. 64

    "We NEED to make sure his death wasn't in vain! We NEED to fight for him!"

    Your a pathethic hypocrit Mario…Seriously? You did absolutly nothing when he was alive and you are a bully to, don't forget that the next time you send hate mail to certain celebreties…



  65. 65

    Re: youfools – You're the fucking idiot for falling for it like a braindead zombie. God, get a life! and stop being up lady Gaga's ASS! what is your REAL life like? Get back to REALITY!



  66. 66

    I can't believe most of you commenting on here are being so insensitive and rude. You are the reason things like this happen and kids think that suicide is their only option. The point of all of this is that Jamey and all of the other bullied teens shouldn't have to stick up for themselves. They're still KIDS and can't be expected to be able to handle all of this hatred on their own. They shouldn't have to go through their life defending themselves because of a PERSONAL decision. Also, his parents aren't being hypnotized by Lady GaGa. She has been taking a stand for these kids nonstop and all they are doing is recognizing that and thanking her. These parents are understanding that this is a problem beyond just their son and are teaming up with GaGa and 'It Gets Better' to make sure that future bullying is prevented. How can you be against that?



  67. 67

    And i seriously thought that after his suicide yhe bullies would feel some guilt or remorce for what they did. But no, they just laugh at it. Like really? Thats sickning! Like i dont even know how its possible for anyone to be that heartless =(

  68. @v@ says – reply to this


    68

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – Logical post; and when all else appears to be failing, MOVE the child into another school so they can start with a fresh slate. I know people will think that moving a kid is wrong or giving up, but it isn't. It can literally save a kid from a toxic environment.



  69. 69

    Why can't the bullies be charged with harrassment at the very least? I commend the 'it gets better' campaign, but the focus need to be directed toward the bullies. The victims don't need or want any more attention than they 're already getting. Instead of It Gets Better t-shirts, I wish teens could wear Bullies are Assholes shirts to school. This is just heartbreaking.



  70. 70

    Re: Rocketboy
    All due respect, but this kind of bullying hasn't been around forever….now it's a wolfpack mentality. When a group of kids are against you in school, and online after school you don't have a chance. At that age, when so many people make your life miserable, the whole world seems against you. This kid did everything right - talked to counselors, parents, etc., and nothing happened. Never been there, but an understand the hopeless feeling.



  71. 71

    There has to be consequences in society for those who can't behave themselves properly. If we can't take care of bullies ourselves, such as beating them beyond recognition without repercussions, then obviously we must count on authorities to do their jobs and stop them dead in their tracks when they get this out-of-control. If it takes a law to spell this out to get proper justice…then so be it. This is an extreme example of bullying going beyond child-hood games of taking sides. It is a hate crime. I commend those who have taken action to at least do something about addressing this, rather than blow it off as most the general populous, sitting back and watching it as though it were entertainment. Thanks Perez for posting.



  72. 72

    There was an interesting point raised and not expanded: the role of religion in bullying. We can all think of examples of religions where the followers are taught nothing but hate and they're also taught it's ok to bully those deemed sinners. Jamey, as a blogger, should've (notice the correct spelling) been able to approach a family member in person, to express his concerns. I, too would've (*) told him to punch the biggest one where it would do the most damage. The only language bullies understand is violence. You can put those people in as many sensitivity workshops as you want - bottom line - they won't listen and they won't see themselves as being wrong. You might get your butt kicked and bleed a little but, you'll heal and you'll have made your point.



  73. 73

    Re: NookiesWA – thank you….thats what i say….this kids are all growing up tto be little bitches…..i have three kids and always teach my kids to defend themselves and dont let anybody pick on them…

    I DONT THINK NO LAWS AR GONNA STOP BULLYING….LAWS AND JAIL HAVE NOT STOPPED PEOPLE FROM STEALING, CHEATING, KILLING, DRIVING DRUNK, SELLING DRUGS RAPING AND SO ON….WHAT MAKES YOU GUYS THINK SOME LAW IS GONNA STOP SOME DOUCHE FROM WANTING TO LOOK COOL IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS AND STOP BULLYING SOMEBODY….BULLYING IS SOMETHING THAT IS NEVER GONNA STOP…WE AS PARENTS NEED TO TEACH OUR KIDS RESPECT AND TOLENRANCE ON BOTH SIDES AND TO KICK SOMEONES ASS WHEN THEY GET BULLIED….
