This morning with last night's Knicks game waiting for me on my DVR and with tons of baseball and football to look forward to, I locked into a story I inadvertenly bumped into about a 15 year old girl in Canada that had taken her life after being the target of bullying.

The story I've pieced together was that this girl had at some time over a year ago gone on to her webcam and was coaxed by some onlookers to flash. She did and shortly after was contacted by a unanimous cyber bully to "put on a show" or the pic of her flashing would go viral. Soon after the pic did get online and she ended up so tortured by others to the point she ended up moving and in another school.

There she made a much more common mistake of girls her age and slept with a boy who had a girlfriend. She was then beaten up by the girlfriend and her friends and apparently even the kid she slept with was a part of this bullying and the initial set up. She ended up in the hospital and began contemplating suicide. She in fact ended up drinking bleach in an attempt to take her life.

Therafter the bullying continued and she even ended up putting out this youtube video (sorry having trouble posting it but the link is here)-

The girl ended up taking her life and what's gotten my attention maybe even MORE than the actual story are the comments posted by kids that knew her on her Facebook page (I took out the poster's names):

Quote:
Yes, because why have empathy for a 15 year old hooker?! she flashed guys by choice and did she honestly think there would be no consequences?! honestly! i bet a couple of her girlfriends made this page for her, to make her look all innocent! Read the story first then comment with your pity, u=but after reading it i would doubt you would actually have any pity left for her since she doesn't deserve it! just go, and give that pity to someone who needs actual help, you know, people who are not head?!


HAJAHAHA
i-heard-she-killed-herself-id-kill-myself-too-if-my-last-name-was-todd-


Dumb scumbags on here with their pathetic pity for a drug addict


Or what? You'll drink more bleach?


I had a bleach cocktail with her once, then we played hangman. Fun times

I pick on weaklings for hobby. Its quite fun. What about everyone who killed themselves this week, don't they deserve one of these pity sites?


She only got bullyied for what she did! It wad her choice to to that but still R.I.P


She had friends until everyone found out she flashed:/


wow brent jerry and david jus amaze me, she knew the guy had a gf yes (THE GIRL ADMITTED SHE MADE A MISTAKE!!), but that doesnt make her a horrible person that deserves to die ( even tho she physically did it herself and "brought" on the tourmenting and stalking like some people think)thousands of people have affairs allll the time and the affair-ee shouldnt get staalked,teased and tourment for months on end being forced to change schools every other month or so. the gf of the guy shoulda broke up with the boy, and she prob wouldnt like amanda o well that doesnt mean ruin her life! and yes showing her boobs at 12 was another mistake that she also admitted and was ashamed of im sure!

Yay I have been waiting for this one!

TITS OR GTFO

Thank god she died


"People are bullying me for getting naked on the internet, i know! I'll make a youtube video about how i failed to kill myself, that'll sure show them!"- amanda todd logic



I found a picture of her nude corpse




I just can't believe that even after this girl has died these kids are saying this kind of sht..

But to me, the fact that she flashed to her webcam made her a "hated person" in her school?? I don't understand that. I mean woudn't that, if anything, make her more likeable as a "rebel" if not more popular..or whatever....IDK. So confusing. The part about her getting a beatdown isn't even surprising as I've seen it happen when I was that age where guys/girls got something coming to them for cheating etc.. Not saying it's right but something I've personally witnessed myself in JHS and HS.


But the stuff said "after" she'd taken her life is really like WTH??? Twice in my HS years someone I'd known had died (one was killed by another kid; the other was killed by a cop in Bushwick which became a big story at the time and led to protests) and both times their "enemies" ie kids that had beef with them etc. mourned the losses, tap the bottle and spills some Old English for you fallen brother even if he at one time was an "enemy" of yours. One dude that had fought the kid killed by another was so upset he cried and made an attempt to retaliate even though they had beef aat one time.

What am I missing with this kind of hate from these ******* ass kids that wouldn't have lasted a day in Brooklyn where I was growing up? IMO, that's character they're lacking in. Thugs and crooks I knew growing up had heart and enough character to be able to show respect after a peer had just died.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
