Default Fourth grader commits suicide...

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bes...ine.cnn?hpt=T2

Wow.. he asked the nurse to go to the bathroom, locked himself inside, and hung himself.

I wonder what lead up to these events, there has to be more to the story...I wonder what his home life was like, and I'm not saying his parents are necessarily to blame, but damn.

getting bullied these days can be a mother fucker.

its not like when we were kids and it ended when you went home.

kids these days get txt, tweets and updates on being bullied. shit i bet apple i-phone has a bully app.

its a sad story for sure. Kids are too underdelveloped to understand the reprocussions of their actions at such a young age. parents need to do a better job of recognizing when a kid is getting bullied and being a bully.

fucking sad.

Kids are fucking mean as fucking hell. Kids left to their own devices with no fear of disipline can be straight evil, example? Lord of the Flies.

If nothing is done to the kids bullying then shit like this happens. Most kids are resiliant but im guessing this kid got it from every corner, not just at school.

If i find out my daughter gets bullied when she gets older, that shit will be Priority # fucking one to get that shit taken care of. I will walk straight up into a class room and fix that shit right there and I am FAR from being a bad ass or confrontational.

The only way to end bullying is for the bully to get his ass kicked.

Couldn't imagine what the family of that fourth grader is going through, that's horrible.

one of the other students who is in my kids tae kwon do class was on her school bus and some bullies were beating up another kid. she stepped in to
stop the fight. they started attacking her. she kicked their asses. DESPITE THE FACT THERE WERE A CRAPLOAD OF WITNESSES she got in trouble for coming to the aid of the kid and DEFENDING HERSELF when they switched to attack her. she was suspended with possibility of expulsion and it was a huge mess.

I have seen plenty of parents who don't care what their kids do.

when my daughter was 2 we were playing on the structures at the park. I turned for a second and a 7 year old boy punched her. I reached in the tube and ripped that kid out of the play structure by the hair and demanded he tell me where his parents were. with my kid in one hand and him by his hair we found his parents. I asked where he learned to hit a 2 year old and is that what you teach him at home. the parents insisted no. I demanded the brat appologize to my daughter. he refused. the parents said they couldn't make him. I bent down to the boy and told him that if he didn't give my daughter an apology I was going to pound his father into the ground and would not stop until I felt I got retribution of your actions. he began crying... i said "kid, say goodbye to your dad as you know him" I set my kid on the playset behind me and grabbed the dad who immediately began crying. I said "now you see how much of a failure as a parent you are. Discipline and consequence needs to be taught" the kid started screaming I'm sorry, over and over again. I picked up my daughter and we went to the swings.

schools are too p(_)ssy these days for fear of law suits etc which is why problems like this arise. Teachers cannot punish students, kids are not punished at home, no one cares. The "good" kids get roughed up and do not have the foresight to see that school does not last forever and that people grow up.

that is what libs do for our schools. they were once the bullies so they feel anyone who fights back should pay

I told my kids if they beat someone up for being bullied i was alright with that. let them throw the first punch and it should be all over. mine train on a 175 heavy bag. my 12 year old hits hard. makes me wince,

That's awesome.

When you're out of school you're praised for self-defense or helping out someone that is being attacked. Why in school are these values not instilled to help out your fellow man like that?

Wow, crazy. I got picked on a lot in school but I never let it get to me. It seems that in MI I got accepted more in school than down here in Cali. Down here, if you aren't from here or haven't grown up here, or at least look like a carbon copy of everyone else, you'll get picked on.
Nowadays it seems the bully gets less punishment than the kid that fights back.

that story is fucking awesome. i wish you had it on videotape making the dad cry cuz you were gonna beat his ass...

the suicide story is completely heart grabbing. kids these days are gutless and don't care what happens to the other kids they pick on. i remember awhile back a girl killed herself over a myspace bully that picked on her constantly. words can hurt more then throwing punches because it messes with your mind...
