A friend was married to a woman that was a total monster. We all wondered what the heck he saw in her but tried to support him anyway. This guy had major depression issues his whole life. Had been on and off meds for depression in and out of therapy. His wife's shopping and running around on top the fact that she flat refuses to work put them in such a financial crunch that he could no longer afford meds or treatment. At this point he finds out that the side is sleeping around on him. The last email I got from him I was out of the country. It said that he'd just had a huge fight with her once again because she refused to stop sleeping with this other guy and refused to get our of their house because he was obligated to support her and their kid. She completed the barrage of insults by telling him it would be better for everyone if he just died because he couldn't earn a decent living had no chance of ever doing anything with his life and was just an all around loser and that she and their child were stuck in poverty due to his lack of drive. The next day he committed suicide. I don't know if anyone else knows the truth or about her affair but now just a few short months after his death I see her openly dating the very man she was cheating on him with. She apparently got a decent payout from the insurance company (she had even made sure years before due to his depression issues that he had a policy that covered suicide!) because I see her blowing money on all kinds of crap. New clothes trips private schools for the kid so she can go run around all day (still NO job) and now she is having the boyfriend come stay in the house with her and their kid. I know she planned this whole thing, but I guess I'm the only person that knows because she's got the poor widow roll down so good everyone even my friends own family is giving her props for being such a strong woman and mother... If only they knew the truth... Is this murder? I've seen stuff on the news latterly about kids in school being charged with bullying after another kid commits suicide. Could she be charged if someone turned her in to police. I just am sick that my buddy is gone and this witch of a woman is going to raise his kid thinking he was a pathetic coward or something...

Bulling most of the time should have legal consequences before it ever gets to the point of suicide, battery,harassment, mental or physical abuse stalking and the list goes on and on....There should be consequences at any age for this kind of behavior and every single adult that fails to intervene should face penalties too.Children should fear those consequences as they should be appropriate for their age.Adults know if they commit any act to create fear in another what the consequences are and that's why most don't do it.If they are old enough to use manipulation and intimidation then they damn sure are old enough to face the consequences!!!Oh and yes they should be charged with murder if that's the end result.An animal can only be beat down so much till it reacts.

What are the charges in cases of assisted suicide? Murder? Manslaughter? I'm not sure, but at least it is assisted suicide.
I also think people being charge in any kind of crime should have a theft charge. They've stolen a life that wasn't theirs. And the penalty should be a stiffer penalty based on each dependent that person has because they stole a father, mother, husband or wife. If a child is murdered, they should be charged based on the all the different life experiences stolen from them and they're parents and siblings. I know that would never happen, but it should.

Bullies only continue with the people that allow them to.I worked with a grown woman,grandmother that tried that shit on me at work until I swore to her one more time I would file charges quicker than she could roll her eyes for harassment.Every action to management I could have taken even in writing was ignored and I truly believe in KINDNESS KILLS but the kinder I was the nastier she was.Long story short she still works there.She was reported by several people for her harassment towards them and still works there.To beat it all I was her supervisor.Well shes had two heart attacks since.Wonder why?????

Everyone is allowed to try to be peacefully happy and relieve their suffering. trying to understand invasions doesn't mean I have the wherewithal to re-unite. I don't. I never will. the NSA was wrong and so was the no intent to help and I wish all well now that I have changed and have help but I'm like a severe burn victim that will never become a fire fighter. Sorry that we all didn't resolve before it grew to the magnitude it did but look down the road 5 years and what would have been beautiful or peaceful about how it was all being handled. none of us is bad but we sure were not supportive of a functional peacefully happy conclusion to how to resolve.

I learned how to handle a bully. In 9th grade. For defending myself, I was expelled.
That was long time ago. I wouldn't change a thing.

I would change some things as I have dealt with a lot of traumas and violent energy I saw and felt. Deepak Chopra said that anger clings to unfair and unjust events that happen to us and we have all suffered that. Its helpful to seek help and deal with it in a unconditional loving environment and then u can deal with things in the loving, creative way that u are able to as u are able to. All children in dysfunctional families have to plot to survive and it was plotting to intrude uninvited with no intent to heal. I don't have the strength to resolve all but I don't have to plot anymore. Once u are stripped down to bare wire there is no need to hide who u are, no need for bravado or bluster. It isn't easy , it isn't fun, it stills hurts but it becomes understandable. No pain to anyone else will cure or fix anything or anyone and no loving creative force in the universe puts u in pain to fix or heal u , I feel now.
