This child died after sustaining injuries in a "fight". We know what "fight" means, when the media's been talking to school "administrators".

Lawsuit: Bullying over Christian beliefs led to death of Lorel M - WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

Apparently, the kid was ATTACKED - beaten to death. I don't have to wonder what it was like. I've witnessed that sort of violence. And I've had a few tastes of it, myself. Two of my classmates killed themselves due to bullying - after many beatings, and much verbal abuse. I received my share of punches and insults - although the physical attacks tapered off, when I attached myself to a local criminal - for whom I counted money, as it was handed into his car. Having a powerful protector - or the illusion of one - may have saved my life.

But some kids have no protectors, at all. Just like vicious dogs, the bullies go after the easy victims. It's so sad that this continues to happen. If you wonder why people sacrifice, to put their children in private schools, why people who cannot afford private schools do not have children, why people who cannot afford private school tuition LEAVE THE STATE - this sort of thing is why.

Your life story is too outlandish to be true.

Sad about the kid. Stuff like that didn't happen when I went to school.

I'm sorry, but a kid is DEAD, because of something you consider "too outlandish to be true".

Are you sure aren't just blocking a great deal from your own memory?

He wasn't saying the kid was dead because of what he said about your life story.
