Worthless sonsofbitches. If man(the law)doesn't make these scum pay, others may. This is so disgusting, sick little cowards with a herd mentality. Hope the parents of these worthless bullies are so proud.
This cyber-bullying goes on every day, even on here. Shocking? Hardly, it's all there in type to see. Lots of denying and liars who have been getting away with it way too long.
Supposed adults, many with children, on a website posting filthy lies and attacking others. For what?! Fun, entertainment, getting back at someone? Grow the hell up, let your children have good roll models and for the rest, go spend some time on a suicide hotline. Might open your eyes, but some just don't care.

Dragging the scumbags behind a vehicle would do more good. They would never do it again.

If everyone committed suicide every time someone put them down half of topix users would be dead and the other half in jail.
Grow some balls and give back what you get. Suicide is for the weak minded. If you can't play the game stay off the net!
To blame others is wrong.

How about laws to permanently stop bullying.

The Bully Prevention Act has the following provisions.

1. If a child bullies even once, their parents are given a stiff fine. If the child does it again, the parents receive a mandatory sentence of at least 2 years.

2. Victims of bullying shall be given concealed carry permits.

3. Victims of bullying are required to fight back, using maximum force.

4. Parents of bullies would permanently lose parental rights for all their children.

5. Parents would have the right to relinquish custody of potential bullies. Then they would be analyzed to see if the parents were the cause or if they were genetically predisposed, or chose to be that way. Those that can be rehabilitated will receive rehabilitation, and the rest shall be humanely euthanized.

6. Those bullying by ruse should get 2-5 years in prison.

7. Adult bullies and parents of bullies shall be required to register as violent offenders and have their addresses published and cannot live within so many miles of children.

8. Adult bullies and parents of bullies are to permanently lose eligibility for driving and occupational licenses.

Yes, the Code of Hammurabi. I support it, but the touchy-feely libs in these forums oppose that. I guess because most bullies (and rapists by extension) are liberals, they get nervous when people who choose to do such things get stiff sentences or capital punishment.

Is it possible to drive bullies to suicide? Those are the scum of the earth we all could do without. Usually, the ones driven to suicide have the traits that would make the entire world a better place if everyone had them. Passivity is a virtue while aggression, street smarts, and physical strength should be seen as character defects and weaknesses.

Sounds really good, but it don't work that way for long on here. Topix will remind you what you can & cannot do. Beside Topix is just a small drop in the ocean.
The story is one of many, unfortunately, kids/teenagers who don't know HOW to handle this bullying.
Eh, There is so much more, I'm not going to bother. Read the story please, or not, it says more.

I would argue your facts. I have known 3 people that committed suicide. The world is a better place without them, all were thieves and druggies. No good traits whatsoever.
It is the weak minded that takes their own life.
Parents are failing their children.

Wow ....
People are different, some people cannot handle being attacked.
When a group of people attack another, it's the bullies fault, not the victims.
It doesn't cost anything to show a bit of compassion.
Too much hate in the world today .... sad story.

topix users are adults. not 15 year old girls that spent 3 years dealing with a mistake she made. a mistake that a 12 year old girl listen to unknow person to show her body parts is not her fault.

Well, they are not facts, but my mere opinion at the time. I do agree there are some who do the world a favor when they leave the world for less violent and more law-abiding people.

However, I do wonder if a lot of what you call weak-minded are really the desirable traits.

I hope they find the initial animal that started tormenting her......Sending topless pics of a 12 year old? Really? This person should be beaten by an angry mob, let the police look the other way on this one......
