1. not your son or brother, how insightful, because if he was my guess is you would probably be grieving right now
2. but he was someones son or brother and someone is grieving right now because of bullies
3. do you have younger siblings, would you let others pick on your siblings or would you stand up
4. seriously, you could tell the parents of this kid that it is entirely his own fault for not being mentally tough enough
1. Gee, you are smrt.
2. Seriously, you must have PHD in human behavioral sciences! That is an astounding observation!
3. I don't blindly defend or follow people. I get the information and stop the problem before it escalates though. That is something that happens on a regular basis with my family.
4. I said nothing about the voyeurs being without any fault nor did I say a thing about the victim being "mentally tough enough". I took a look at the time line of the events that have been reported keeping in mind the suicide ideation process and the time line indicates that the victim thought about what he was going to do and then he did it. That to me is the opposite of being "mentally weak".
I don't understand your attempts to polarize my words and place the words into my arguments. So let me reiterate and simplify what I have said:
A. The voyeurs should be charged with a criminal act beyond invasion of privacy.
B. The victim made his decision to take his own life.
C. This wouldn't be as large of a deal had the victim been heterosexual.
We do not have a full and accurate account of what has happened with the school's administration between the time of the victim discovering the roommate's second attempt at voyeurism and his suicide. There is a period of 24 hours in which emotions were escalated further bringing Tyler to the unfortunate decision to kill himself.
