So sad, it makes me extremely sad when a teen succumbs to bullying. Especially, when she had her whole life ahead of her.

She was the victim of a certain type of person who commits harmful acts against a victim which the victim feels they cannot fight back against or do anything about. Other weak-minded individuals then jump on the bandwagon and harass and bully her too.
Hopefully the guy will be found and heavily heavily sentenced. It's manslaughter at the least IMO.

If these little pukes make it to adulthood...they will only amount to the shit stain at the bottom of the gutter.

so sad, young children and teens are not protected from the dangers of the cyber world, and are sometimes too naive and trusting of people they meet/chat online with.

Oh, dear! Her poor parents! They're left behind with this misery.

I'd like a few minutes alone with the dirtbag who bullied her.

Please?

Just a few minutes.
