Oh Shut up you stupid IGNORANT uniformed arguing troll 'tidy catz Decatur,GA #21', there is 'bullying case' right now being decided
in Hadley township, Massachusetts, whence 6 high school teen students, have been accused of causing the suicide death of a young Irish immigrant student Phoebe Prince's, all attending Hadley High School {you can watch a CNN sponsored town-hall meeting, with Dr. Phil, and other 'experts', on this case today..} The critical factor, gleaned from the Grand Jury transcript, is the fact that
Phoebe Prince was on anti-depressant medications, and had attempted suicide a month or two prior to hanging herself! Now the other critical factor, as I clearly wrote in your cut-and-paste message I wrote to you, is whether this brand of prescription anti-depressant, rather than calm her down, actually precipitated a suicidal mode! If you were alert you would see, on TV commercial, a warning that this particular constantly advertized generic chemical class {about 5 very popular for treatment brands these past ~15 years} does have the side-effect of inducing suicide, in teens, adolescent, and adults! The other 'legal' factor is whether these 6 defendents should be tried as adults! I don't put pen to paper unless I know what I'm doing idiot 'tidy catz #21'! Obviously you can infer that from my polite "Dear..." post you cut-and-pasted! Now I don't know whether that kid at Rutgers University who tragically leaped to his death in the icy cold waters, of New Jersey, had been on anti-depressants,but that is a factor to be considered!! So what is your point flake?!

An intelligent reply 'tidy catz' would have been to trace down the statistical suicide rate per thousands College/University students let's say from the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's, 2000's, 2010, and quote them here! That is how a systematic Topix Thread I think ought to be 'brainstormed'{no theory, hypothesis, can be rejected, in formal brainstorming..} sic. Bob Burn's {China} answer was reasonable, simply because the student suicide rate in China, is increasing at an almost exponential rate! Unlike the U.S.A. whose College/University attendances have more or less
kept pace with population increases,{about 10 %
post-high school diplomas, China's with practically 100 percent of our outsourced 3 shifts/day skilled blue collar machinists..tool and die makers/white collar technologists{BSc, MS, PhD}, engineers, upper/ middle management MBA's supervisors; durable/non-durable {apparel} consumer goods exports to us, these past 40 years
on uncalibrated outsourcing Globalization {$750 billions/year trade deficit}; China's progressive suicide rates among, HS and formal education students, may not be due to bullying, but to the
insecure competitive 'impostor' effect, of an Industrial Revolution maturing Nation!!

God that WAS a CNN Cooper Anderson monitored 2hrs 'fluff-piece' on 'bullying' town-hall meeting, tonight at 4PM {EST}!! Never seen so many talking heads say absolutely nothing!! Yeah Dr. Phil, and his usual pundit psycho-babble legislation banalities! And they paraded out these 3 or 5, allegedly bullied boys, and girls, who looked right out Central Casting for a remake of 'Eight is Enough' TV sitcom! Yeah sure kids you were bullied because you looked so cute! Give me a break! And I thought it was going to be, as touted, an insightful analysis of the Massachusetts Hadley High School 6/Phoebe Prince tragedy! Instead, we got the simplistic blame on the high school faculty! My God unlike that tragic kid at Rutgers University, who as a junior, one year away from a 4 years BA batchelor's degree, who could not easily transfer, as his decision to suicide was it seemed rather not caused by incessant tormenting, but a mortifying view of himself, and another male student, having sex, put on an e-social student-body/faculty web-site; in contrast with Hadley High School Phoebe Prince, young Irish immigrant girl,no less tragic, hanging after one failed attempt a month before, could have left that High School, to another without losing credits, rather as the
CNN piece titled 'Bullying, Nowhere to GO', or something like that, implied she could not!!

Im so sick of politicians trying to legislate every single aspect of American society. It's impossible... a waste of time, money and more bureaucracy. I'm relieved every single poll shows an incumbent/liberal/democrat flush coming this November. Good riddance.

Correction to my #24 post: "...tonight at 10:00 PM
{EST}!!..."
Yeah,'marcus Dallas, TX #25', maybe like centrist Republican Senator Scott Brown {R.MA}, who took Senator Ted Kennedy's {D.MA} seat in Massachusetts, last Spring 2010, we'll get rid of a few reticent House/Senate "Blue Dog" Democrat infidels come this November 2nd.! These idiots trying to distance themselves, from pro-active virtual 1929, Summer/Fall 2008 Depression saviors Obama {D.IL}/Biden {D.DE}/Cabinet/Caucus, just like Al Gore {D.TN}, who lost his own State in 2000, tried to distance himself from his very successful boss President Bill Clinton {D.AR}, who left Republicans G.W. Bush/R. Cheney with an almost $1 trillion dollars lower Federal Deficit, on January 2001; and Al Gore/J.Lieberman lost!! Well so much for loyalty, hey?!!
