Here it is. As the blog Love your Love-Life reports, bullying somebody to the point where a 12 year old girl hurls herself from the top of a tower in an abandoned concrete plant is not just bullying. It’s terrorism. It’s sickening, literally sickening. It’s actually making me slightly nauseated. As somebody who helps run an anti-suicide charity and who has some very personal connections with suicide, this just makes me so angry.
These girls should be put into juvenile detention until they’re 18. We need to send a REAL message, not the silly little “Don’t stand up for yourself” campaign going on right now across the country.
I’m not even sure what we can practically do about this right now. This is a deep-rooted, societal failure made possible by an incredibly flawed system in place. The only way to change it is to radically change how society is run – something I’m not against.
But these girls…let’s hope they repent, or else as Shepherd Book of “Firefly” once said they’ll be going to the special Hell reserved for child molesters or people who talk at the theater.
