PostSubject: Parents say boy committed suicide after embarrassing video went viral   July 16th 2014, 12:04 am

A San Diego couple says their 14-year-old son committed suicide after an embarrassing video surreptitiously taken of him in a school bathroom went viral and led to him being "mercilessly bullied."

Timothy and Barbara Burdette filed a $1 million claim against the San Diego Unified School District. They say a teacher, an administrator and possibly other employees at University City High School knew their son Matthew, a Boy Scout who was studying for the Eagle rank, was being harassed but did nothing to stop it.

I don't think it's right for parents to blame others when their child take their own life. If you are thinking of taking your own life or if a person takes their own life then that person is just unstable anyways, therefore, any little thing or huge thing may be a deciding factor for that person to finally go through with taking their life. This is sad but the choice resides with the person who takes their life. Period!

Kiyah I get what you're saying but let's be real about this. There are circumstances and situations that can cause a person to make a decision whether good or bad. So if a person is bullying or harassing someone and that is the reason that person took their own life then that person doing the bullying or harassing or letting it happens bares some responsibility and should be held accountable.

In this instance this is about a school not doing enough to protect a student. Maybe this is where the issue is.

We all handle stress differently and unfortunately some people see suicide as the only answers.  How can we help those people?

I don't think you can help those people. You will no never know their plans or what they are feeling so how can you help.
