Damn. Tragic news out of Utah, where a 14-year-old middle school student committed suicide last week after being bullied one too many times: 14-year-old Bennion Jr. High student commits suicide.

David Phan, a student at Bennion Junior High School in Taylorsville, reportedly shot himself in the head in front of other students on a sky bridge just outside the school on Thursday afternoon.

According to peers, Phan was the victim of extensive bullying. He had been dismissed from school early that day and went home with this mother, but returned in the afternoon. On the bridge, he met up with some other students and produced a handgun just before shooting himself:
The handgun David used came from his home, Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal confirmed. The gun had been locked up in a safe at the home. Hoyal said David knew where the weapon was and was somehow able to access it.

As David walked across the skybridge, he ran into a group of seven students he knew, Hoyal said. There was a "very short" conversation between David and the group before David pulled out a gun and shot himself before anyone had time to react. Hoyal declined to discuss what was said between David and the students.
School officials are investigating bullying allegations, though the say Phan apparently hadn't reported any recent incidents. They're also quick to note that Phan was facing "personal issues": School officials say boy who shot himself never reported bullying.

This blog, which includes comments from an alumnus of Bennion Jr. High, suggests that David Phan might have been the victim of racialized bullying: Bullied Utah Boy David Phan, 14, kills himself outside of school, school claims Phan had "significant personal challenges."

But this is all speculation. I can't imagine the kind of pain and torment that drove David Phan to such a tragic end. My heart goes out to his family and community, and I just hope that his story prevents further tragedy: Teen who took his own life 'shielded family from bullying.

Poor kid never had a chance. A traffic guard said she saw him being chased by a bunch of his White tormentors who beat him while hurling racial epithets!

He tried to protect himself and was dismissed from school for fighting! His pissed off mother berated him for bringing shame to the family! Having no support from anyone he decided to end it.

His parents said that no one is to blame and they just want to bury their son and move on.

They weren't there for him. Matter of fact they sided with the ugly racists against their own son. Poor kid, dead at 14 because no one had his back. Of course the school denies any knowledge of the bullying. Everyone just looks the other way.

Yes, off 5 or 6 baddies and he'll get off free as he's 14.

Rest in peace.

...When the kid gets out of jail after sending a few bulliers to heaven, if anymore bully happens, it's turn for Daddio.." It's my turn, son, let me take care of business.." Then SpongeBob will arm himself with an AK47, auto mode, 200 rounds, another grenade launcher M79 made-in-USA with 20 rounds, a Colt 45 tucked in his back with fully loaded clip plus one round in the barrel, total 8 rounds-just like when Bob raided the Chinese Embassy in Phnompenh, Cambodia 1979- Now, let's play a real game, Buddies to see who is tougher! Wahahahahhahahaha!

His parents didn't have his back. The teachers and school administrators absolve themselves of all responsibility. This poor kid was all alone against the bullies.

It shouldn't have been this way.

That's not as bad as US in Canada and gun control is very tight up here. That doesn't exclude Bullying. But the problem is not serious. Just use "EQUALIZER", knifing the bullier a few times in his stomach, problem SOLVED and the kid would spend 01 NIGHT in jail. Period. Wahahahhahaa!

"I find that so incredibly beyond the pale. The idea that they would have such a disdain for decency, that they would publish a photo that the victim's family and friends would undoubtedly see that, they could be so heartless, so callous and that they are profitting off this man's death is one of the most repugnant things I have ever seen."

The fact that you made this thread just so you could make that statement shows you up as possibly the most disgusting individual ever to have made use of the internet.

You're the subhuman scum trying to profit from a death.
