I Am Amanda Todd

Canadian teen who posted bullying video found dead

Canada was in uproar Friday over a 15-year-old schoolgirl who was found dead, an apparent suicide, five weeks after she uploaded a video to YouTube describing years of bullying that drove her to drugs and alcohol.

Coroner Barb McLintock said Thursday night that preliminary indications suggest the British Columbia girl, Amanda Todd, killed herself. Her school district's spokeswoman, Cheryl Quinton, confirmed the girl in the video was her.

  1. Facebook’s the current Lord-of-the Flies. It’ll magnify/multiply/intensify, the evil of the real world, few kids are prepared for.

    Back in the day, most of us got bullied by some hormonal kid(s) at some point. Usually it was at certain places/times you could avoid much of the time.

    The net is a double whammy, following you into your home, and providing thousands, of others pressured to join in, or risk losing their social standing.

    Kids should be barred from everywhere but porn sites, let ‘em masturbate those aggressive hormones away.
