Even if the bullies are caught they will only be upset because of the consequences they may face. They won't care one wit that their actions caused someone to take their own life. Fact is they'll probably be secretly proud that they were able to get a "queer" to kill himself.
That's the mindset that bigotry allows to flourish.
I'm not going to lie. I was a huge bully, back in high school. I used to verbally destroy people, just because they pushed a button of mine, which was almost anything on a certain day. I even bullied a kid that was gay, because he got a bit up in my face. I know you're angry about what happens, and I totally understand, but c'mon buddy. We're not all monsters. A lot of us were angry guys, that in a way, were also victims of a cruel and unjust society.

It doesn't get better by minimizing it.

Highschools full of bullies. The world's full of bullies of one type or other. It's tragic when someone kills themselves but u cannot make someone do it. He shouldent have come out at high school. Poor boy. I so get why he woulda done it.
If u make it criminal there's gonna be way too many people in jail.
RIP Chartreuse.

Yes, when bullies cause someone to end their life, they should be treated as criminals.

Are you a queer posing as a woman, like a lot of queers do?

<quoted text>Suicide is a self-directed decision to act upon thoughts no one can know after the queer takes his own life and can no longer testify.
No one else can be held responsible for the personal decisions of some flaky queer who decides to off himself for reasons only he can know.
Most people are just happy to know that there's one less queer whining and bitching for more privileges and preferential treatment from government, staging fake hate-crimes to garner sympathy from media and government, and clogging up the courts with their gay lawsuits.
You are insane.
