Another young child dead because of bullies.What kind of kids are we raising for them to be so mean and hateful to each other?Tormented because he was "short".Too bad we cant take every disgusting bully and drop them on an island somewhere and let them just kill each other off.I fear for our future generations seeing how evil and hateful our present young generation is now.*Shakes head*.

I used to be good friends with him and it's hard to believ this really happened..you never realize how much one thing can matter to you until it's gone and I don't get how the two people that caused this could still smile and laugh about it! All I know is I hope later on they realize that they caused this!! They should be put in jail for what they caused!! They better hope that karma doesn't set in because what they caused is not fair for them to get away with it! We know who it was who caused it so why won't they do something about it!?

I have heard through some gossip that the kids who did this are laughing about it, knowing they caused this.. I even heard that one of them had enough nerve to go to the viewing.. I have talked to my children and I told them that I hope they would come to me if they were going through this and they said "NO", because the bullies would just beat them up more.. I said parents should take care of it and they said that most the parents know their kids are bullies and don't care... How can any parent go to bed at night knowing they have raised a kid that thinks it is ok to torment another kid.. I sure hope the authorities take care of this, my children said just about eveyone knows who did it, but no one will come forward out of fear, karma does come back, even when you least expect it.

I can say that I have heard the same thing from my daughter, she says if I get involved that it just makes the kids even worse. It is sad and yes sadly most of the kids that have been picking on my daughter the parents could give 2 Sh*ts about what htey are doing and laugh it off as " normal teen behavior" Sickening :(

I, heard the bullies were also at the burial & they laughed as they threw dirt on little JON CARMICHAEL'S casket...

I, pray God will not forgive these bullies..they know right from wrong...Apathetic trash...

If the BULLIES are allowed to live long enough to marry and have children, THEN THESE COWARDS WILL REAP WHAT THEY'VE SOWN..THEIR INNOCENT CHILDREN WILL BECOME VICTIMS OF BULLYING..

I, PRAY "GOD" FINDS THESE COWARDS CONSCIENCE'S AND THEY NEVER HAVE ANOTHER MOMENT OF PEACE,TRIUMPH NOR HAPPINESS...

THEY DESERVE TO BE SO LADEN DOWN WITH FEAR,REJECTION, HURT AND PAIN...THAT THEY WILL NEVER ENJOY ANYTHING IN LIFE....

THEY DESERVE TO FEEL THE SAME HURT,PAIN,LOSS OF JON'S FAMILY & FRIENDS..
THEY ALSO DESERVE TO FEEL THE CONSTANT FEAR,REJECTION & DREAD THEY MADE PRECIOUS JON CARMICHAEL FEEL UNTIL HE DREW HIS LAST BREATH
...
THESE COWARDS IF THEY LIVE WILL BE ENROLLED IN HIGH SCHOOL NEXT FALL..
ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS REMEMBER WHAT THESE BULLIES DID TO "JON CARMICHAEL" & MAKE THEM REGRET EVER HAVING BEEN BORN..
