I TOTALLY agree..... It made me SICK to my stomach last night reading some of the messages these people were writing....

One wrote
"Dumb bitch didn't even know how to drink bleach right" or "Angels dont flash the camera"...and there was MUCH worse

Just stupid crap like that... I almost private messaged a few of those punks but then I stopped myself because I quickly saw myself getting arrested for threatening someone under 18... I can only shake my head in disbelief at the High School aged kids we say today, total punks...

What amazes me is some of the comments on youtube. How can there be any hope left when so many people lack empathy?? People are #ing laughing over her death and commenting how she deserved it. What a sick world this has become.


It's sad, but these are the times we live in. Kids were cruel in my day, but it seems like they're much more cruel because of the social networking sites. They can now garner support for their cruelty, threaten friends and call them names without doing it face to face. The internet has caused them to lose any kind of scruples.

It's hard trying to relate to kids today and the things they're going through. I remember back when I was in Junior High and High School if you had a problem with a kid (or if they had a problem with you) you would settle the disagreement at a place, we called it the secret gardens, and you would fight for a minute or two and then it would be squashed... Both boys and girls would settle things like this all the time. I'm not saying it was right, but ultimately conflicts rarely went on forever. There was an issue, both sides handled it, it was dropped... And mind you this one only 10-15 years ago when I was in Jr High/HS, so it seems like the times certainly have changed...

What you get a taste of today is basically a society raising the next gen sociopaths. They will be legion.
Its a very cruel society where ignorance is equal to strength, cruelty the sign of superiority and the ability to think for yourself, or express any act of compassion, seen as suspicious activity.

sure social networking helps these kids being more agressive to each other, but i dont think thats the problem, we adapt to technology, i believe that you and me dont go to youtube and start messing around with everyone and everything WE see, i believe its because we have standards and morals and... well... whats the point of doing that anyway?
what we are seeing is the new school 16&pregnant mtv generation, the dont give a f$ck about anything generation, and above all the miseducated generation.

its time parents start to give a good smack upside the head when kids do dumb stuff it worked for me...maybe not for you, but the next guy did.

getting the kids to go out and do some activity besides hanging around the web and trolling and gaming on the xbox.

You can all blame Zuckerberg for this and section 43 of the criminal code. The buck stops there. Or at least a minimum "in loco parentis" to some degree in the public schools.

There is no reason why there can't be parental controls applied to underage facebook accounts. Logging enabled and administration rights. Locally and remotely. It's just absolutely mind boggling to me that parents can only act as viewers when watching their kids post personal and detrimental things about themselves. You should be able to log in and quickly go YANK it right off there.

As for the continued bullying, this responsibility lies heavily on the school board. This whole problem is two-pronged and perhaps even three.

Does it really need to go that far. I would hope that parents would teach their children that posting personal and detrimental things on the Internet will attract Negative attention and not have to resort to censorship.

Sad....

Applying a permanent solution to a temporary problem is a lousy way to deal with life. She was a pretty girl that I'll assume had a kind heart and people who really loved her. This is the dark side of the Modern world and technology. I'm sure had she kept her head held high and moved on from this incident that in a few years this would have all blown over and be forgotten.

RIP






Though i agree with you, how long does she have to keep holdin her head up high and how many times did she have to try to move on. Its not like it happened one time and she tried to move on with her life several times, it kept happening where ever she moved to. Why did nobody do anything to stop this the first time. i hope all the people involved and all the people who left nasty comments get there karma and i hope its extreamly harsh on them.

It's happening right now with the RCMP.


METRO VANCOUVER - The RCMP confirmed Friday that a full investigation has been launched into the circumstances that led to Amanda Todd's death. Read more: www.vancouversun.com...



"Serious crime teams in Coquitlam and Ridge Meadows are working together, conducting interviews and reviewing any potential contributing factors to her death," said RCMP spokesman Sgt. Peter Thiessen, in a news release Friday. Read more: www.vancouversun.com...

This is clearly a case of harassment and distribution of child porn.

I'm tired of hearing about this girl. And before everyone gets mad, here's why:




I found this on my Facebook this morning. The black spots are to filter the language, in consideration for the rules. *tip hat to mods* The comments were about as thoughtful and intelligent as the OP. There's a difference between mourning a tragedy and flaunting the depression of a teenager all over the internet for sympathy likes and stuff. According to the OP in the image, there's a good chance that we don't even know about all of the girl's story - but we're still giving her sympathy stars and whatnot.

I'm tired of it. The sympathy gambits, the tragedies, the fights over whether or not victims deserve to be mourned, the total chaos and animalistic squabbling over death and destruction.

Edit: Do not misunderstand me! I am tired of the sympathy-likers and the tragedy-lolers. The people who use someone else's loss to garner attention for themselves, and the people who look at her picture and say "LOL you deserved to die you're so pathetic lololol".

These are the people I see every day. These are the kinds of people I am sick of. And this girl's death just brought out the worst of them. That's why I'm tired of hearing about her. Because along with her memory, comes the leeches and the wolves. And honestly, I don't know if it's even worth it.

Further edit: blotted out a little bit of profanity I missed on my sweep of the pic.

She wasn't 15 when she flashed the guys, she was 12... That post was debunked immediately...

And that dbag writes help the ones who really need help?? Well the girl committed suicide, so I'm sure she really needed help, and its perfectly okay to mourn the death of a child...

Wait wut? I have just called it like it is, if you have a problem with facts and things like that then that is your problem. Tell me, what is it have posted that was so bad that she has to be defended from me?


From what I've read it sounds like you condone her for getting punched out and left in a ditch.
It sounds like you refer to her as weak
It sounds like you have no empathy towards what happened
It also sounds like you don't hold society partly to blame for how things have regressed in regards to adolescent behavior.

I agree with you there, but the laws have reduced parental rights. Parents who smack their kids today can be sent to jail for child abuse.

Take a walk through a high school and notice the behavior and foul language these kids use in the presence of teachers. They have no fear and no consequences for their actions.

It is really sad it ended the way it did and she was a very beautiful girl.

A big part of the problem is the addiction to social media sites today. Al she had to do was cancel the Facebook page and most likely the person would not have found her again.

Running away to another city and other schools does little good when you keep posting all your info on your FB page.

Another problem I see is kids seeking "help" via You-tube and other sites.

Kids have always been bullied and always will. People seem to not be able to deal with it now days for some reason.

The old days before internet was basically the same because a girl in high school let her boyfriend take some nude pictures of her and they got around school. her life was hell for a while but it passed.

Amanda Todd's problem would have passed also with time but she chose another path.

She thought her life was ruined and had no future.

Now she will never meet the man she will love forever and miss raising the children she may have had and witnessed all the accomplishments she would have made to the world and others.

Problems are temporary.........death is permanent!

No offense, but ATS doesn't need dbags like you on here.... I understand that this will likely get erased and I will likely get a private message explaining that i shouldnt do this, but a little kid died, she was bullied, she committed suicide and you leave a dbag response like that??Big man you are...


Your entitled to your opinion. And to give two sh**s about kids like this. That doesn't mean I give a damn. I feel bad for her family, who this selfish broad made them feel worse than some "cyber bully"....gimme a break


Selfish broad? Clearly you're a teenager. Only people of equal age would refer to the female persuasion as "broads". Otherwise you would have said girl or child. If I'm wrong, then it's seriously troubling you said that.

It doesn't really matter how old she was 12 or 15, Either way she should have known better to keep her boobs in her shirt ... Theirs nothing wrong with feeling sorry for her, I agree with that... But y does their have to be something wrong with NOT feeling sorry for her? The time she made to make that stupid youtube video, she could have just made a rant video about it, and got plenty of sympathy, other than knocking herself off...... Ohwell, whats done is done.

While I can agree that suicide is a selfish act, I don't understand why you need to add a derogatory label to a girl who does it? Typically, one wouldn't consider a child a "broad". It's just weird. It's like reducing your stature down to the same age level.
