Listen everyone...this isn't a bad post i promice...I have an idea. Rather than using this thread for more evil and gossip, how about we use it for good. How bout we make Ideas of how we can make Cody's story known in a good way to bring Justice to him. How about we use it to discourage bullying. To help the poor kids like him who are on the verge of killing themselves, and we stop this from happening in the future. We show everyone how much cody and all the other hurt people like him mean to us by doing something about it rather than sit by and watch this keep happening. Who's with me? For Cody?

Attendance at Marion County High School is improving, with only 85 students absent today, Thursday, Nov. 13.

According to Marion County Superintendent Roger Marcum, this week has been extremely difficult because of the recent suicide of MCHS sophomore Cody Greenwell and it has been made worse by people spreading rumors and false information.

"I hope the instructional focus and momentum can return to MCHS," he said. "The MCHS faculty, staff, students and administration have done a wonderful job of dealing with a very difficult situation that has been made much worse by irresponsible behavior in spreading rumors and false information."

One of those rumors was circulating on Wednesday when people were claiming that Marion County High School was on "lock down." Those claims were not true, according to Marcum. Police have been on campus all week as a security measure, but the school was not on lock down. Police did, however, find a hit list but it was not associated with the recent suicide of Cody Greenwell in any way, Marcum said. A freshman student wrote the list on Wednesday and said he did it to "get out of school," according to Marcum. The student wrote the list two hours before police found it Wednesday afternoon. The student has been suspended, Marcum said.

"We still have no real hit list associated with all of this," Marcum said. During the Nov. 11 meeting of the Marion County Board of Education, Marcum said he was sharing as much information as he could about what was going on at Marion County High School.

Friday, Nov. 7, Cody Greenwell, a Marion County High School sophomore, committed suicide after school hours and off of school property. Following that incident, an investigation ensued regarding threats that were allegedly made against students and staff at the school. After a precautionary search on Monday and an on-going investigation by police, none of those rumors have been confirmed.

Marcum said he received about 200 phone calls Sunday, and he praised the efforts of the Kentucky State Police, the Lebanon Police and the Marion County Sheriff's Office for the plan they put in place to address what was only a rumor.

"We found nothing, no weapons, no list of students," Marcum told the school board Nov. 11. "Nothing to this date has been found."

Nevertheless, he said concerns in the community have affected attendance and learning at the high school. Monday, Nov. 10, about 55 percent of the student were at school, and Tuesday, Nov. 11, attendance was still below 80 percent, Marcum said.

"There is nothing to indicate at this time that Marion County High School is not safe," Marcum said.

Unfortunately, more rumors are continuing to spread in a variety of ways, including online message boards. Marcum said that both students and adults have been involved in spreading the rumors, and the rumors are not helping the situation.

"I hate to say this, but I think in some cases people are purposely doing this," Marcum told the school board.

In fact, some media outlets have contributed to the hysteria. Channel LEX18 in Lexington and WAVE 3 TV in Louisville inaccurately reported that Greenwell killed himself Friday at home after getting in trouble for bringing a gun to school.

"There is no truth to that report whatsoever," Marcum said. "No gun was ever found at school."

Marcum said if school officials believed there was any danger, they would have called off school. The biggest problem now is stopping the speculation and getting kids back to school.

"The hope is we'll get back to normal at some point," he said.

Anti dope how do you know what is a lie and what isnt? what is your involvement?
oh, you did say YOU were trying to offer prayer and encouragement on this board, yes you did, and then you turn around and say those that do are something like a freak or hate monger, etc...
you describe yourself very well
you dont beat the devil antidope, you sound like the devil
if you are a teacher anti dope, then I do not feel safe with you being with our children.. there is no idea what kind of trash talk you give the kids in class. If I find out you are a teacher, believe me I will do everything possible to get you out of OUR school. I promise.

My involvement has to post a thread specifically and only dedicated to prayers for Cody and his family.

yes antidope this is one of your posts

so is this
Get real... Offering prayer and encouragement on Topix boards overrun by dope promoters, perverts, slanderers, liars, gossipers, slackers and fear mongers, who will use your good will to ruin your kids and the community? Hell, even Marcum knows what goes on here. To beat the devil, you have to be wiser than the devil.

how many personalities do you have?

someone know who anti dope really is? tell me, cause if it is a teacher or a school board memeber, or anyone with the school, I will go to work

Hey, "hacknbush", it appears you take him out of context. Other boards specifically dedicated to prayer and encouragement haven't been spoiled like this one has been.

No I dont take this person out of context at all
i see clearly what they are trying to do
he is not encouraging prayer or encouragement
not at all
do you not see how this person writes differently in almost each or at least every other post? it is a troubled mind and it is not encouraging
to use his own words, why would he/she be on HERE to encourage?
I can see through this person, as clear as crystal
my guess is, you can too

All you have to do is carefully read the two quotes you posted and it is clear he was talking of different boards, one specifically to prayer and encouragement and others where various people were using them to cause fear, confusion, etc. If one of his complaints is slander, slandering him and trying to introduce more confusion seems to support his stance. I don't think he posted to encourage you.

Maybe a quote from Shakespeare would help clarity.

"See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate,
That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love.
And I for winking at your discords too
Have lost a brace of kinsmen: all are punish'd."

Good Idea,
Now I want to add to your Idea by saying that I would like to see the people that came to me at Cody's home that night and to the funeral home and the Service and grave site Tuesday, with things you say you actually wittnessed, to talk to Shelton Young or Officer Slinker of the state police. I've been waiting for some of you to speak up but am being told you are not. If we really want Justice, lets do the right thing. I only want truth, not rumors and lies. Please, be kind. By the way, I will meet with any of you that has something worthwhile to say.

Thats right I stood outside and talked to all kinds of Cody's friends at the funeral home that told me they saw this and that. Now everyone is giving the silent treatment. Please don't take this in your own hands, it will only make it worse. Don't let my brothers death go without justice.

I have wept and prayed for Cody and his family. I have tried to stay focused on actual reality and have resisted attempts by people to anonymously and rather coldly use his death for either rebellious and selfish shutting of school, or the egotist satisfactions exhibited by some for temporary attention. I have perceived Cody as a sensitive and loving person and realized he must have been confronted with some type of severe trigger to influence his decision. These type decisions amongst youth especially are commonly unrequited love with a romantic focus, or some type of extreme misbehavior.

With that said, I must still offer concern for this concept of "justice" now being repeated and supposedly offered by family. Cold reason insists that the only crime actually identified so far is the suicide. I doubt anyone actually helped him. My question to these concerns would be focused to the general statements of "this and that" being said by his friends directly to family. What is "this and that?" If it was heard, it must be specific. Nothing specific has ever been offered by anyone in these days since his death. It has all led to rumor and the basis for those rumors have repeatedly been shown false, or with ill intent.

This is an unbelievably difficult time for Cody's family and closest friends. Deflecting the pain and necessary mourning time by seeking some type of "justice" that would have to be associated to "he said, she said" type hearsay that would have no legal standing whatsoever, nor have reliable "truth" to it, is dangerous ground for those needing time, peace and prayer for closure to mourning. It could be a deflection of a "normal" mourning process.

My prayers remain active for Cody's family and friends. I personally am satisfied that Cody is with God and relieved of his particular confusions leading to such tragedy on earth.

Well aren't you sooo much better than her.

You're complaining about her talking about you behind your back and here you are talking about her behind hers. Don't be such a hypocrite. Either ignore the stuff she's saying about you, or confront her about it. Talking about someone behind their back doesn't make you any better than them.

I know that WE ALL DONT KNOW THE TRUTH OR WHAT WAS IN CODY HEAD THAT DAY!!!!!!!!!! So, I think everyone should leave him alone.Since,they say people picked on he at school and now he is with the LORD. We should leave him alone so he can REST IN PEACE!!!!!!!!! And before you judge these kids or anyone else you should read your BIBLE I think it said we are not to judge.We are not the judge or the jury.So, GOD BLESS EVERYONE INCLUDING THE ONES IN BLACK!!!!!!!!One of Cody"s friends was my son.He also dresses in BLACK.My prayers are with his father,brother and family an all CODYS FRIENDS!!!!!
