When will the bullying stop? What will it take?
Vancouver-area teen Amanda Todd, 15, committed suicide on Wednesday thanks to constant bullying from her classmates after she made a series of videos telling the world her story using simple flash cards.
The first bullying incident took place when a man contacted her on Facebook after she had flashed herself during a chat session with a few friends. The man would later threaten to send her topless photo around “if [she] don’t put on a show.”
UPDATE: ANONYMOUS CLAIMS TO HAVE TRACKED DOWN THE BULLY HERE
Terrifyingly, the unidentified stranger knew everything about her…her address, her school, her friends, relatives, and the names of her family members. Soon, her naked photo had been forwarded “to everyone.”
Even though, to Amanda, it must have seemed as though her whole life was over, suicide is a permanent solution to an almost always temporary problem.
