Wow she got 30927 replies on youtube.. Hope she's gonna be an example for social media to act, and to rewrite some things within these programs..Like , to report things that shouldn't be there.

A child comitted suicide and the greater part of ATS:ers revel in her death, calling her a number of names, blaming the child for her own confused act of desperation.

It seems mercy is not something tangible in your hearts. Not something emerging naturally when something like this happens.

Well that my friends is a trait of a sociopathic mind. The inability to feel compassion for a suffering being.

If you cant feel pity nor mourn a child having been driven to do this what does that say about you? It tells you that you are about one notch above a pedophile. Yes, a being that is so low it revels in the pain and abuse of a child.

It is the conflict that this tragedy instigates among us that has me sickened, not the sympathy shown. We fight over whether or not she deserved it - who are WE to say she deserved it or not? Is it not enough to simply mourn the life that might have been?

Do not point your finger at me with accusations of apathy on your lips. I am simply frustrated that we should choose this tragedy as an opportunity to fight amongst each other some more. Can we not set aside our judgmental tendencies and see to it that this girl is remembered for what she might have been, and not what she was?

Why is it that everyone is pushing the blame every where but on the person who made the choices?

Why is it that the posters who are pointing out the blown-out-of-proportion response to this, are in turn, bullied themselves by the holier than thou of ATS? Hypocrites much?

Why does one girl, making numerous bad decisions in numerous schools, with no parental supervision, getting called out on her bad decisions, mean we should have Federal regulations on the internet? Thousands of innocent, foreign, civilians are murdered each year, by our military, maybe you should point your hypocritical finger at them... Oh, they're protecting us from the boogeyman too.

Why do people have to give up their freedoms because a good part of the United States are living in fear and are too weak to do anything about it themselves? Or take responsibility for their own actions?

It is sad that someone who made a choice to leave this place, is being mourned for, while thousands are murdered or kidnapped, and wish only to be reunited with the sense of freedom, let alone a personal computer. But none of the "holier than thou" care about that, they only care about the ones who make the 7 o'clock news.

Peace.

I think I have read every reply to this thread and although I agree, the world doesn't need more regulations especially when it comes to freedom of speech on the internet, I don't think a single person or anything regarding to this story can be viewed as a means to impose this. No one is trying to push an agenda here to further regulate the internet.

I think the Vancouver RCMP are more concerned with trying to find her stalker, the man(boy) who had posted her breasts (child pornography) on facebook, and should be allowed to investigate by using the very outlet she was tormented through because it will offer the best leads.

You know what I blame for her death. Society... and the absurd level of shame we attach to the naked human body and anything sexual. Tragic loss of a beautiful and kind young girl for what are ultimately petty and stupid reasons.

I agree.


I was more talking to those in this thread whom have advocated such regulations on the internet because of this and similar incidents. These incidents just hit the right heart strings with some people, and they need to be more aware of the manipulation they are experiencing. Federal Regulation on the internet won't stop bullying, not in the least bit.

Also,as I should have said it in my first post, R.I.P to her and my condolences to her family.

Peace.

I can't help but feel if it had been a guy instead, he would be demonized throughout this thread for being a pig. Or something. I don't know.

Sorry to hear you feel that way and I REALLY hope that wouldn't be the case. I, personally, would never judge based on gender. Your statement reminds me of another child in Canada who killed himself because he was bullied for being Gay. The fact that someone would choose death as the appropriate answer to their problems just goes to show how alone everyone really is...

I repeat once again, she was 12 when she first flashed on the webcam. A 12 year old doesnt understand the true ramifications of their actions. I'm not about to hold a child to a higher standard when they honestly don't know better. Not to mention this is a time in a young girls life when her body is going through many changes, and boys on the internet calling her beautiful asking for me could have played to a very vulnerable girls emotions...

I agree that if she didn't flash when she was 12 she would probably still be with us today. Unfortunately, kids are not perfect and they mistakes. Young Amanda Todd was no different in that sense...

Are you kidding? The government and society makes living itself into a competitive sport, and the result is the alienation of anyone who happens to break some unspoken taboo. But the real problem here is adults unwilling to take their own children to task.

Remember the days when parents actually raised their kids, and didn't let them run wild and make life a living hell for people who were "different"? Yeah.

Not kidding, death/murder is never the answer. But the rest of your post I strongly agree with. Society does make living a competitive sport and its sad that people just accept that. I remember when parents actually raised there kids. I was one of those lucky ones who had support and was raised properly. It is also my goal, as a parent, to make sure I raise both my children to understand and accept "difference" in people. I have been fortunate enough, in 3 years, to have been in a situation where I can stay home and raise my children rather than depending on TV, Internet, School or Daycare to do it for me.

Wow!!! Thanks for the "education" this morning ATS. The posts in this thread are very revealing. Some are just plain frightening.

Taking the story at face value for the time being. This story wreaks of societal and parental failure at every turn. Bullies are bullies because parents fail at teaching respect and values, and society tolerates it. Teens who feel as though they have no one and nothing left to turn to when they are going through what they see as their worst nightmare are suffering the same system failure as the bullies. Our society, and our parenting skills, have failed both.

Rather than blame this tragedy on anyone we can point our finger at, maybe it's time we blame ourselves. Because we CAN do something about it as individuals, and as a society. The question is, will we? If this thread is any indicator, the answer seems to be a resounding NO! That's disheartening. It says a lot about the collective mindset of our "modern" civilization.

How many of the people who have seen the scott youtube video
ever heard of little Anne Frank

During the two years and one month Anne Frank spent hiding in a Secret Annex in Amsterdam during World War II, she kept a diary. Anne Frank's diary, which was published by her father after the war and has been read by millions of people around the world, chronicles both the tensions and difficulties of living in such a confined space for that long a duration as well as Anne's struggles with becoming a teenager. Since the publication of her diary, Anne Frank has become a symbol of the children that were murdered in the Holocaust.
Anne could no longer go to a school with non-Jews. In September 1941, Anne had to leave her Montessori school to attend the Jewish Lyceum. In May 1942, a new edict forced all Jews over the age of six to wear a yellow Star of David on their clothes.


history1900s.about.com...

This is just a tiny excerpt of what this girl went through...
Amanda Scott was never forced to see her mom sent to a gas chamber
Anne Frank never gave up. Anne Franks story is to be praised I wonder if
Amanda Scott was ever taught in school what Anne Frank went through at 15.
Did Anne Frank chug a bottle of bleach noooo she fought, and you should fight.
Suicide is nothing of honor or brave, doing what Anne Frank did was courageous and brave.
What Amanda did was cowardly lets not praise suicide as brave because that is a lie
Some of you in this thread need to take a good hard look at what little miss frank went through.

Lets teach bullied kids about what a little girl named Anne Frank went through....

Why do you keep hammering home Anne Frank on this thread? I can go back 4-5 pages to see the same exact thing. We get it, you believe because Anne Frank went through so much at a young age, that all girls should be able to endure tough circumstances...Using Anne Frank as your baseline for comparison to other young girls is beyond retarded. Anne Frank was a once of a generation type of a figure and that's why she's still talked about today

You might want to do a little research on the Diary of Anne Frank. www.mathaba.net...
There's a very real possibility it's a fraud.

I had this long post.....then I realized something. There's one fact that proves this video is fake without any doubt.

There are no cuts on her arms in the video. look for yourself. The image they show at the end isn't of her.....


There's other things that suggest it's fake.....like who goes to the trouble of moving to a different city but keeping your facebook profile?

Who would make a fake video like this? Well someone who wants to curb free speech.....and while the words people "said" to her are terrible, if you eliminate bullying speech, it's still an elimination of free speech. And this plan seems to be working. A lot of you are falling for it and asking for bullying to be stopped.....but that's an elimination of free speech. First they would start with bullying speech......

I gotta say if I was the father of that little girl and i saw whayt is being posted on that fb page i would hunt down everyone of those fn kids and beat them senseless. This is what our children are with this bs social media. they are hidden behind a computer screen, disconnecting from the real world.

Yes i would be in jail right now and a couple other teenagers would be dead. Unreal the comments that were made. The parents of those children should be very proud of themselves for bringing up ass holes. Took everything I had not to just blast all of them and click off the page.

this piece written about the victim is exactly the kind of response you would expect from the very bullies that caused this person to end their life.

its full of excuses. its written by very immature and creul people. people try to justify the actions of the bullies.
the fact that there is more and more people like this in society and people who actually think in this way is very disturbing. i think it shows that as bad as things are right now , its gonna be a hell of a lot worse in the future.

bullying on the internet leading to suicide is becoming more and more commonplace.
