What's the rest of the story, or was this some single random message from an unknown number? There's more to it I'm sure.

Hello marthe, I am going to respectfully disagree with you on this one. This appears to be someone who is simply asking for guidance and probably should disregard your comment due to the fact that if something horrible should befall this individual I am sure you would wish you could take back those comments. Nice to see you on the forums again, marthe.

I'm gonna have to ask why would you even have such thoughts? Do your so called friends say such crap to you? Maybe Marthe, you need to make new friends.

You are disliked . You must have done some very bad things. For someone to wish your death like that it is cuz you are a demon . Like the other person said there is more to that story. It isn't illegal to wish someone death !

You do not have to puss anyone off for them to tell you to kill your self it's called bullying doesn't matter if it's kids or adults saying it and it's very wrong

It isn't illegal, however if comments or text messages of that nature are considered acts of bullying and intimidation. Save them, they can be for a no contact/order of protection.

People need to realize everyone has faults and feelings and struggles no one is perfect by far of any means you should always be kind and respect others if you don't know them or if you do not like the person stay the hell away from them I no from experience from school I am a girl people made fun of me because I had a single father my whole life raised to kids on his own no stamps or welfare or tenncare he worked provided and loved us but people made fun of me all the time I didn't have fancy clothes or name brand shoes had no mother to teach me about make up hair or anything I felt like killing my self a lot of times no those same people talk to me on Facebook or in public like it was no big deal I cried days on end begging not to go to school for years this shit needs to stop happening

Its not illegal if its a one time thing, maybe they were arguing and people say stuff when they argue. IF they constantly seek this person out to tell them that they should kill themselves or go out of their way to target this person then they are in fact bullying this person, that is a crime. But at most you have is grounds for a RO or an TOP. Now if you get one of those and they still persist you have them facing criminal charges. If these are teenagers and this is an adult texting the crime is more severe, if it is two teens or two adults then my advice above applies. If it is a teen saying it to an adult chalk it up to adolescent hormones and be the adult and know that they will likely forget about it in a few days.
