Default Another Bullying-Related Suicide

Here we go again...Kids resorting to suicide as a solution to their problems, what the fuck is wrong with them?

Source: http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf...t_sources.html


Quote:
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The last thing she said on Twitter was, "I can't, I'm done, I give up."

And as a westbound train was pulling into the Huguenot Staten Island Railway station Wednesday afternoon, witnesses saw the 15-year-old Tottenville High School student saying, "Finally it's here," before jumping in front of it.

The girl -- who sources identified as Felicia Garcia -- was taken via ambulance to Staten Island University Hopital, Princes' Bay, where she was pronounced dead. An MTA spokeswoman confirmed her death Wednesday night, stating that the agency would conduct a joint investigation with the NYPD into its circumstances.

On Wednesday night, her death had sent ripples through social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where teens sent out "rest in peace" messages and railed that she had been pushed to the edge by bullying. Law enforcement sources said they'll investigate to see what, if any, role bullying played in her death.

The scene unfolded shortly after 3 p.m., on a Huguenot train platform crowded with teens and pre-teens headed home from school.

Kayla Gonzalez, 14, and Nicole Messina, 13, both Huguenot residents and students at Paulo Intermediate School, said they saw Miss Garcia on the platform, her hair disheveled and in front of her face, looking upset.

"She kept asking everyone, 'When does the train come," Miss Gonzalez recounted. Then, as it approached, she turned around and dropped her bag and her phone, "Finally it's here," they recalled.

Miss Garcia then jumped backwards into the train's path, in what Miss Gonzalez described as "some kind of flip."

According to one passenger who phoned the Advance after the incident, the platform was crowded with students coming home from school as the train approached.

The passenger said he "heard a scream and everything stopped."

News of her apparent suicide sent immediate ripples through before her family had even heard what had happened.

Margarita Pabon, who identified herself as Miss Garcia's maternal aunt, said the girl's parents had died and she was living in a foster home. Ms. Pabon said she was contacted by the foster agency, and heard what happened through Facebook, but was still trying to get official word from police Wednesday night.

"I just don't want to believe it," Ms. Pabon said.

Her death comes roughly 10 months after 15-year-old Amanda Cummings was fatally injured after jumping in front of a city bus on Hylan Boulevard. Miss Cummings' family members maintain she was bullied and tormented by her peers, but police and law enforcement sources said they could find no evidence that bullying played any role in her death.

Miss Garcia wrote out her last tweet on Tuesday. On Wednesday night, several others repeated her words on their own Twitter feeds, writing messages like, "The saddest part about this tweet is that no one knew she actually meant it."

Miss Gonzalez said that she had seen several of her friends discussing the death on Instagram.

She said she had spent time with Miss Garcia, describing her as happy and good-spirited.

"She was like an outgoing person. She was always happy and I've bever really see her misearble," Miss Gonzalez said. "She was one of those girls who always wanted to party, like nothing really ever stopped her.

City Department of Education spokeswoman Margie Feinberg said the school system had gotten word of the incident, and confirmed that Chancellor Dennis Walcott had reached out to the girl's legal guardian.

The MTA suspended train service between the Eltingville and Tottenville stations in both directions as police investigated, and resumed service by 4:15 p.m. Several detectives spoke to teenagers on the scene, and conducted interviews outside the hospital's emergency room.

The incident occurred at the same platform where 18-year-old Kyle Jensen jumped in front of a train in an apparent suicide almost exactly two years ago.

-- Advance staffer Michael Sedon contributed to this report.

I'll just wait for the report into her life to find out that she did some bad things and doesn't deserve sympathy. There should probably be enough time to make some homemade popcorn.

Parents don't raise their kids right, Teachers don't teach the kids right. Instead of encouraging kids to stick up for themselves, tell them to pussy out and tell a teacher, kid keeps getting picked on, gets depressed. Drinks bleach. Either they bring these kids up right, or this will become as common as hating your in-laws.

Suicide is selfish enough as it is, but jumping in front of trains and vehicles is fucking awful.

Parents need to start paying attention to their kids and take them in for therapy if they looked depressed.

Schools should start stressing to kids to report all bullying and then call the cops the same day bullying happens.

Cops can arrest the bullies for disturbing the peace, being unruly, making threats or any charge.

Those being bullied should report and not fight back with physical violence except in defense because violence creates more violence. The world is supposed to be more civil, so we need to teach peace.

Her parents are dead though. That would've probably damaged her mentally.
