This is just sad. RIP Amanda.

I had a long-drawn out reply to this but in the end I'm saying no more than what's already been said for the most part.

I do want to take the time to publicly thank Carmen (MPD) because years ago I had a bully/rough patch in life and one day Carm and I met up and he let me vent about that for awhile, and that was super helpful. Thanks brother.

Did you all miss like half of the real story? She didn't just show her boobs once. She did multiple "shows" for multiple people. It wasn't just one stalker either, it was multiple ones. Also, she got her ass kicked for sleeping with another girls boyfriend. That happens all the time. She deserved to have her ass beat for that. She could have easily owned the pictures and just said it was in the past. Not to mention if she got facebook messages from these stalkers why didn't she turn them into the police for child pornography? This girl didn't just make two little mistakes. She made mistake after mistake.My guess is she was doing those shows for other people because she wanted to feel liked. She clearly had some problems to begin with. Is it tragic she took her own life, of course, but most people don't know the whole story it seems.

Doesn't change the fact that the main stalker/any stalker should be euthanized immediately.
Fuck sending them to jail, just get rid of them. Pedophiles too, just euthanize them. If you get convicted of that, that's it your done.

This whole thing sucks.

Yes, the girl made some big mistakes, due largely to what was obviously low self esteem and other kinds of emotional issues, but I just wish she would have asked for serious help from a caring adult before she killed herself.

As for other kids who are being physically bullied and/or hit like this girl was, here's a simple thing that can help them easily: send them to take some boxing lessons. Really.

Knowing how to throw a punch and being willing to do so when it's appropriate is a fairly valuable skill to have. I know that's not politically correct in our overly sensitive society, and I understand there are some other, more complex answers to this problem. I also don't mean kids should beat anyone up who looks at them funny, but I know from my own experience and common sense that when you know how to fight, people generally don't fuck with you (go figure).

While knowing how to physically fight back might not have helped this poor girl, I know it would help A LOT of boys who are being bullied.

Anyways, a sad story all around. Anyone who took part in assaulting this girl, threatening her, or distributing nude pictures of her should be in prison.
