Amanda Todd Commits Suicide

Horrible story. Always tragic to hear of someone that young dying.

That said, the questions I have...

(Obvious) What's the story with her parents?

Where are the parents of the kids doing the bullying?

And the big one, is there something more to this story? Kids coming to another school to beat her up because she flashed a guy online? Gotta be more to it than that, wouldn't you think? The whole story just seems off somehow.

And on a related note, those of us who are a little older should probably all be grateful the world wasn't so connected when we were young and did stupid crap. Back then those things just became a story your friends told on you. These days, thanks to webcams, phone cameras, social media and the internet, the whole world can find out about it, view it and replay it over and over again.

Sheesh :(

Her behavior made her an easy target for those that make themselves feel better by tearing down other people.

It is rarely easy being a kid, learning as you go, making so many mistakes along the way.

If you don't have a strong network of friends and family the world can be a very lonely place.

Some of the responses on here make it easy to see why some children behave the way they do.

She got beat up because she slept with somebody's boyfriend.

Looking at her pics she was a beautiful girl that for some reason had 0 self confidence & was trying desperately to find somewhere to fit in.

I had the same thing happened to a girl in my high school, she flashed her titties in high school party and someone posted her pics all over the bathrooms the next day. She's doing very well right now.

not really comparable.

posted on the bathroom wall...very temporary and easily forgotten and hard to prove it actually existed. people didn't exactly go running to make duplicates and share them around back then, did they? all that is needed is to take it down off the wall and it's done.

once it's on the internet....it's there and it's hard to take down. it's hard to stop from being spread around... and it's pretty much permanent.

it's really hard for anyone of the older generations (like myself and i'm only in my early 40s) to identify with the struggles that exist for the young kids of today because of the internet, kids having their own cell phone at an early age (we only had one phone line in the house like everyone else), and camera phones.

Other question - was she an only child? Siblings tend to stick up for each other which lessens the effect.

And where were her friends? While she was a loner, when i was in school EVERYBODY had some sort of clique.

Also, it is strange that the switched schools twice and had the same experience at all three schools. Maybe her story followed her around or maybe she was just the type who attracted this sort of behaviour. NOT sticking up for the assholes but we all have met people who just can't get away from drama and issues.

Sad story.

Wow, pretty cool they found this guy:

Identity: Kody Maxson

Online Username: kody1206

Edit: although, if he was born in 1980 he'd be either 31 or 32 so I wonder how accurate this is.

I love Anonymous. I'm scared as hell of them, but damn do I respect the brand of social justice they mete out.

Except when they knocked out the PSN...jerks.
