Parents who came to the school to check on their children expressed alarm that a student could gain access to a roof.
"Where was the floor monitor when she went through that door?" said Laqueita Harris, who stopped to pick up her daughter, Destiny, 13. "My daughter is not coming back to school until I get some answers on this."
Catherine Kolowski rushed to the school to pick up her granddaughter.
"We are going to need some answers to this," she said. "They should not have had access to the roof."
----------
Yo Laqueerta, STFU. Hopefully no one answers you and you get charged with contributing to your kid's truancy and delinquency after a week or so.
As if a floor monitor could be everywhere at once. The girl probably waited until the monitor left the area to check on something else.

No access to the roof? You serious Chatty Cathy?
What if there was a fire and that was the only way to get away from fire or smoke, yet it was locked or inaccessable and kids got hurt? You'd be starting a shytstorm complaining why was it locked?

The issue isn't why did she have access to the roof, but why wasnt there a detection system in place or functioning to let security know the door had been opened.

What if instead she chose to go into the basement and tried killing herself down there with pills? Then you'd all be crying, why wasn't the door to the basement locked,? and blaming the janitor.
Oh, she jumped into the pool and tried to drown, where was the gym teacher and why isnt the pool drained when not used.

This suicide shows how fragile and at risk our young teenage girls are.(boys to some degree)
1. throw the computers away,
2. family is so important,
3. too much stress,
to her family I am so sorry. There are hotlines
people can call that are covered 24/7.

your exactly correct. This was not her first attempt and if someone wants to kill themselves unless they are a 24/7 watch they will get it done. She has had previous hospitalizations and outside agency intervention and Achilles " she somehow made it to the roof" means she went out of HER way to climb up 3' of cement to get to the roof which is not an easy task. So how is the "Burg Zoo out of control" which is a very innapropriate statement without knowing all of the facts. See Beacon Record Article for the above comment. Hope the girl and her family heal very quickly.
oh well

These food stamp losers, like the idiot couldn't have jumped from a tree, house roof, or cut her wrists. Because of the dumbest fks on the planet, they should have guards watch doors so some stupid idiots doesn't jump. If the idiot cut her wrists they would sue the knife, jumped from a house roof, sue the builder.

Laqueita Harris, the government will force someone to give you a JOB, and if you're to stupid to get one, they will give you money and feed you so you don't starve to death, and have a total free ride if your some loser minority trash, leeching the life out of America.

@ oh well, who the fuq are you to be talking to people that way, this woman has just as much right to express how she feels about there not being a monitor there, as you do about your ignorant comments about minorities, according to U.S census white people are actually the minority. So as you call us black people welfare losers and minority trash, take a look in the mirror boo boo, the tables are turning.
