You may want to ask him/her that they not hurt themselves. I know you aren't being a bully, but apparently that is reason for someone to kill themselves today.
I see that you have a reputation for being a hater. Why does that not surprise me????

I never said you were a bully. Just an insensitive individual.

You asked me to kill myself, because I was being heartless.

The girl was 10 years old. I feel sorry for any kid whose parents share your views.

I feel bad that she was bullied and ignored by those around her.

Still no excuse for suicide.

I don't see him as insensitive. As someone else said, suicide is NOT the answer to bullying. That's all. I'm pretty sure (and I can't speak for Memphis personally) that were it his son, it wouldn't have been allowed to go that far. I can tell you as a parent, that if my son were to get bullied, he has my support to handle his business. If he attempts to and it continues beyond his control, then it is MY duty as a parent to get involved, and stop it. Whether that means go to the school, and then the parents. Either way, one way or another it WILL stop! Between my wife and I, we don't play that bulls***!

I am sorry for the family's loss .Geez,what could a ten year old have done to be called a **** ? I was called a fat a*** when I was a kid .Never once did I think of killing myself .I did know of a couple of people in my school days killing themselves,don't remember the national media reporting on it .The only "epdemic" is the media reporting of one .

No sympathy that she is dead, no. She off'd herself for no good reason.
