Gabe Taye

An 8-year-old Cincinnati boy was knocked out by a school bully 2 days before he committed suicide. Gabe Taye was assaulted by a bully in the boy's restroom at Carson Elementary School on Jan. 24.

Two days later, he took his own life.

Surveillance video shows Gabe entering the boy's restroom while a bully was in the midst of assaulting another boy.

Gabe extended his hand to shake the bully's hand when the boy grabbed his hand, pulled him to him and slammed Gabe into a wall, knocking him out.

Video footage shows Gabe laying motionless on the bathroom floor for over 7 minutes while his classmates stepped over him and several boys even kicked him.

Eventually, a school employee came to Gabe's aid. The school nurse called his mother to come pick him up. Cornelia Reynolds said she was told her son had fainted. She said no one told her Gabe was knocked out for over 7 minutes.

Later that evening Gabe vomited twice -- a sign of a possible brain injury. She took him to the hospital where a doctor diagnosed a stomach virus and sent him home.

On Jan. 26, Gabe came home from school, spoke to his mom and went to his bedroom. She later found him hanging by his necktie from his bunk bed.

Cincinnati Public School officials initially blamed Reynolds for not taking Gabe to the hospital on Jan. 24 -- the day of the incident.

"On the eve of Mother’s Day, it is unfortunate that CPS chose to blame Gabe's mother for not taking him to the hospital after he was injured at school," attorney Carla Leader said in a statement. "No one from CPS told Gabe's mother that she needed to take him to the hospital. The nurse’s notes verify this.

"It is helpful that CPS did not deny that Carson officials withheld this vital information from Gabe's mother," Leader said.

"In fact, if his mother had been told that Gabe was assaulted and was unconscious for over seven minutes on the bathroom floor, she would have taken him to the hospital and not let him return to Carson," the attorney added.

The coroner ruled Gabe's death a homicide, saying "It was very hard for me to believe that an 8-year-old would even know what it means to commit suicide."

Police released the full video of Gabe's assault on Friday after first blurring out the bullies faces.

    She need to sue the school because they held back information that was critical. Shame on them!

  • jazzysmith12

    wow!!!,so sad but how do a child know how to hang himself except from t.v. or the internet.May he rest in peace.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    This poor poor poor child! My heart hurts for him and his mother!!!

    The school board needs to be held responsible and the bully's parents/guardian also! Who fcuking does that?!?!?! ?

  • jazzysmith12

    exactly

  • MookieFly

    The mother def need to pursue this further. Somebody should have told her that hands were put on her son!

  • Cici

    Lord have mercy on this precious child. R.I.P. ?

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    Let me guess, the killer was not White, Asian, or Pacific Islander. Ion wanna say the B word. This is sad!

  • NeverSurprised

    Oh my God, Sandra. Why did you have to post this? You just ripped my heart to shreds.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    DAMN SHAME!!! Keep making excuses!! At whos cost!! Beautiful child!!!

  • We Can Do This

    What a damn shame! May peace find this poor kids spirit.

  • GuestSTAR

    Poor kid, SMH.

  • Mbailey

    WHO raises kids like this? Where did they learn to be so vicious and psychopathic?

  • Mbailey

    YEAH, cos we all know that all of those groups have no association with bullying and violence. Why, they don't even have laws or any jails.......

  • AcutallyReally

    This is so sad. I hope she sues the school. They failed to protect her child and the other child that was being beaten by the bullies in the bathroom. Then they covered up an assault and misled the mother about the nature of her child's injuries. I would love to know who concocted the story that the child fainted? Whoever it was should be charged. These schools don't want to take responsibility for the terrorism and brutality many kids face on their watch. I'm sure that pack of bullies are well known by all to be bullies yet they were still there attacking other children. I hate to see children criminalized at a young age but a this point I'm not sure what else can be done to protect kids at school. They need to start criminally charing bullies. The kid who knocked this little boy out and beat the other child is an animal and should not be around other children. Prayers to the family. RIP to this little boy.

  • We Can Do This

    Thug mentality parents.

  • ExquisiteWon

    I'm so sorry for this mother's loss especially right before mother's day. I pray for healing and understanding. Poor baby may his soul rest in peace.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    He just hurt ..... I don't it was suicide as we know it . Just a pure release because of th confusion and pain from the concussion ...... so sad and heartbreaking . This is not ok . I will not watch this .

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    I am shocked on a couple of levels: 1) an 8 year old knows how to commit suicide; 2) the school does not inform the parents correctly of these circumstances; 3) I would not rest until the why, when, and why not have been answered by all parties. RIP handsome little angel child.

  • IAmLegend

    My heart is heavy for this child. My God! It is not at all hard to believe an 8 year old would learn how to hang himself. With the aid of technology and television, these kids are exposed to a lot more than we think. But I do question why this poor boy felt so defeated that he couldn't even talk to his mother about it. Something wasn't right in that house. Rest in peace Gabe.

  • Ni Ni

    You just answered your own question: tv & internet.

    Some schools even teach suicide prevention and even though that's meant to be a good thing, they are unknowingly informing kids that there is a choice to 'opt out' so to speak.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Awful. Poor baby, hope the mother sues the school and get the answers she needs.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    In this picture he looks really happy. He was such a cutie. Sad that the school knew of the incident and did nothing. Did they even bring the other child in for questioning after they saw the video that day? Do they review tapes at the end of the day? What is their policy on finding children laid out unconscious in the bathroom with no other person around? Sad that this happened to this family. Not only the child, but the mother who took him to the hospital that night and was sent home with a virus explanation. So sorry to hear this, and my prayers to this entire family.

  • Kirenee

    WTF???? ????

  • Clopretty

    OMG sandra i was LITERALLY going to ask you to make a post about this!! I watched the video myself and its really too choppy to make out what exacly happened! You see him walk in and walk directly up to the boy it looks like they greeted each other you know the whole smack hand grab you into a embrace type thing and he just fell to the ground! the boy walks away and everyone just start walking around him! i don't see any slamming into a wall or anything! Then he's said to have had a stomach virus! it looks like he didn't feel good when he's seen walking into the bathroom! the boy reached his hand out first to dap with Gabe and Gabe missed his hand it looked like his balance was becoming off! to me the video raises a lot of question! This baby boy was so handsome and its scary young kids his age are even aware of Suicide! this whole story is heartbreaking but that video raised a lotttttt of questions! i've literally watched the video over and over again!and it is way too hard to make out what happened!

  • Malcom Flex

    May the soul of that boy rest in peace. BW this is a come to Jesus moment. Yall are CHOOSING to raise these black boys without their fathers in the homes and most of the time not in their lives. You allow your "well behaved" (the basic in denial lie) sons to digest a steady diet of GAMING and HIPHOP a perfect storm for tragedy.

    Most little black boys are colorist AF and disrespectful towards elders and tend to be violent or follow the crowd. Mother is the first teacher. What the F is going on in the homes??????????

  • Malcom Flex

    Single mothers, like Sandra Rose truthfully says all the time. Cocky single mothers who think they kids don't need their fathers or she can do it alone. Black female single motherhood is a failure.

    The apples doesn't fall far from the tree. The parents reflect the child.

  • Luv R

    This breaks my heart.. ?

  • SunnyChi

    Omg! So sad. May he rest in peace!

  • Desiree Edwards

    Omg, may this poor child rest in peace. I feel for the family, what a tragedy!

  • Erica

    I can't stop crying reading this my son is 9 this breaks my heart to think of the pain this kid was in to hang himself! I'm just at a loss for words. RWG beautiful angel!!

  • Mary Collins

    This is wrong on so many levels. This mother has lost her beautiful boy, I am saddened by this. Ms. Do not give up seeking justice for him. The school is to blame for so much incompetence. The school is responsible for protecting our children. All the kids in this video need to be spoken with, get counseling in the importance of helping and getting assistance. My prayers are with you. This is a disgrace!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Why'd the other kids step over him. Who are their parents?!?! This just upsets me on so many levels ?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    ?????????????

  • A D N

    The school better be glad I can't be on the jury! However, I am wondering the age of the young criminal. Is it another child around the age of 8 years old and how do we as a society prosecute child crimes? I know we can hold the school officials responsible for not better protecting the child, but what else can we do because this type of behavior is criminal. We were bullied with name calling and pushing or shoving, but to head bunt or throw someone into a wall...is no longer bullying!

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Single black mom's get blamed again I see below.

    RIP baby boy.

  • Yup, I said it

    Child today are held to no standard. They can throw rocks at your car, rape and assault others and the teachers and society is scared to punish or stop them. Back in the day anybody could jerk a knot in a child that cut up. We need to find a middle ground.

  • A D N

    What are the reasons for this type of behavior?

  • dontgetblocked

    Why blur out their faces!! These kids are monsters. When was the video reviewed and why was the mother told he fainted. I was terrorized for months in middle school until I had to beat ass. Finally the teachers and everyone listened when I turned that motha out. Some kids don't know how to fight back.

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    You not lying I had it out with my sister last week being spiteful not letting my nephew spend Easter with his dad not like she was taking him anywhere. Woman needs to understand a boy needs his father in his life some positive male influence in some positive influence from the leading woman which is his mother. Young boys either turning gay or super deviant

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    I'm sorry the swat team will have to stop me from going up to the school and kill somebody

  • A D N

    Yes, we have to find some answers because this has been going on since corporal punishment ended. There has to be some disciplinary actions we all can agree on and talking to an angry, unloved, unwanted child raised by a female only in the home is not working! Also, usually that female is in a repeated cycle of poverty, no religion, concerned with her man's whereabouts and reproducing more children to hold onto a man who is trying to reproduce with another woman. Our value (want to spend money and not save for rainy days) system is off. Our ability to serve a higher power than oneself is off. Our love for self is off, because no one taught us to properly love. Our ability to find a suitable mate is off. In the meanwhile, no one is raising the child!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Some of the single mothers Are nothing but thug breeding machines

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    Omg now I would have to put hands and feet on someone

  • dontgetblocked

    Got me all riled up. A lot of you on here are the mamas of these bad azz kids. You don't want to face the fact that your little angel is a devil. Years ago, I tried to be a substitute teacher. I could not believe how bad the kids at the hood and the poor white trash schools were. Disrespect was rampant. But the hood kids were violent. A lot of fights went down in the bathroom. If you have to live in the ghetto, teach your kids to fight because their school mates are gangsters. They send teachers home crying daily and I was one of them. Couldn't even take my darn purse in the school. Had to stuff a little money down my bra for the vending machines and keep my cellphone in my pocket. They're just mini-criminals.

  • Hater

    Sad sad world we're living in!

  • A D N

    I was bullied for years also, because I was a good student who always wanted to follow the rules and afraid of harming my grades and being suspended. But one afternoon, on the school bus ride home from school, enough was a damn 'nough! Years of anger released into 5 minutes of beating her ugly, bald-headed, funny shaped azzzz, and later, we became friends lol. We ate lunch together and everything lol! Earned a lot of respect from the bystanders also. I just feel so sorry for the baby above. Boy, this is touching!

    Depression is a feeling of misery that one does not have to be taught, suicide is the end game.

  • A D N

    SR, I know we are terribly hurt and sorrowed for this baby, but as you know, most kids who harm others are usually harmed. Can you follow up with some statistics of why children commit crimes against others by focusing on the emotional conditions of the child please? So often you preach to these single black moms of the importance of having a responsible black man to help raise his child. We are constantly reminded through these stories you posted to just today, the necessity of having a fully functional home with stable parents with love and guidance, where respect for elders is taught and bad behavior is corrected through appropriate reaction. We choose to procreate with males (not men) because we have a need (emotionally or sexually) to fulfil without the understanding of the long term effect upon our lives, the male's life ( because he was just looking for a lay and lied to get it), and the affected child life (who became a burden to raise financially and emotionally, because he really was unwanted).

  • A D N

    Boy, we are on the same page on this issue. I laugh because on some other issues, we differ, lol. However, disciplinary issues are huge in the public school system. The majority of time is spent attempting to control the classroom rather than focusing on the material the students need to learn. I sat in a classroom because my son often complained or commented on the behavior of his peers. I was shocked, stunned! For one, yes the behavior is bad, but these kids are from financially decent homes. I knew some of the parents to the children. However, what I noticed is parents are telling their children that respect is given and earned and the adults needs to respect them if they want respect. No longer is the adult allowed to yell to a disruptive child, "sit your butt down"! That child will yell back at the adult immediately!

  • Ryan

    One of my friends used to work as a substitute teacher in a rural area, with trailer parks within a few miles of the school. She said the same thing, couldn't even take her purse inside because those nasty kids would go through it if she turned her back. Plus they have bad hygiene, showing up to class in dirty clothes. Those trailer mommas do not care about their kids. I couldn't do it.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    because of some stupid comments in previous posts; let me say first that this mostly happens in non black communities. Now his was a tragic incident and I hope this is a therapy and teaching lesson for the bullies involved, the school and hospital communities.

    RIP little soldier.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Say it again. It normally happens where again?

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    The wealthy, the caucasions, and the smart people stopped using public schools decades ago. Private or home school

    Why......

    You see why..

  • OP2

    It's called...private and homeschooling where less gov't is involved which allows parents to do a better job raising their children better without interference.

    However, there is a catch-22 when it comes to homeschooling whereas it can provide a cover for abusive parents and children having little to no recourse for interference or being rescue.

    You can thank the social-liberals and their politics for the ruins of youth in America for generations to come. The liberals hate teaching the poor to have decent morals and good conservative value, especially if it involves conservative religious scriptures.

    -what we're seeing is the outcome of years spent creating a dysfunctional liberal and devilish society by democrat's claiming to care and wanting to help.

  • Rhondalousey

    Charge the parents too if they fail to keep these stupid bullies in line.

  • OP2

    The mother didn't ask what happened...nor ask the child what happened?? Did she stop at some flunky hood clinic where some doc was too lazy to examine the child for bruises and ask questions which resulted in wrongly diagnosing the child with some BS stomach virus??

    -that school used CPS as a buffer to run game on the Mother and cover up their own crimes against that child.

    -with the right lawyers that Mother should really go after that school for lying and covering up as well as there should be a public outcry or backlash against the dysfunctional CPS who often prey on destroying minorities families (or the poor and ignorant), in order to keep themselves hired or kept on the payroll.

  • Ryan

    This dude hates black women with kids. Like on a almost serial killer-type level. Surprised he didn't use his favorite insult of "mammie". SMDH.

  • OP2

    It's not going to be therapy nor a teaching lesson as efforts will be made to cover up the truth. -these types of cases will be repeated in other poor communities throughout the years, unfortunately.

    Um. This does not happen in mostly non-black communities. But, it does happen often in dysfunctional urban schools where even some of the teachers have given up on dysfunctional kids. -unfortunately, good kids are caught in the mix and are often the ones paying the heavier price.

    The answer is School Vouchers for better opportunities in a more structural setting where bullies are weeded out and move back to their dysfunctional, failing liberal schools. -where the more well-behaved kids willing to learn can remain.

    I'd sue facebook if i were his mom. they let all those suicide streams become a trend.

  • Ryan

    If they're blocked they won't see your message, right? ?

  • FallenOne

    I was about that age when i first thought of suicide and tried it at around 11. Yes i got the idea from tv. There was so much going on in my home thst it seemed the best way not to hurt anymore. It was also a tv showed that changed my mind later around 12 or 14. Now im a grown adult male that is thankgul i did not do it. But i must admit on ocassion i think of it when life gets difficult. I inderstand that i still have unresolved issues from childhood that needs addressing. Im sharing in hopes someone reading this would know to take seriously someones treats of suicide even if your sure its kust attention seeking and to let someone know who maybe considering it that your not alone and its ok to speak to someone. The national suicide prevention line is a grrat way to honestly speak with people without fear you will be reported for just sharing your thoughts. Also its diffiucilt to speak with your doctors sometime as they want to report it and put you on hold [although some need it] many like i was just need someone to help us process things. So maybe im writting to to help a medical professional better understand too.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Maybe but that don't mean there isn't any nut cases going to home school are private schools, just saying, Hun!

  • Faithz

    They may try to cover up, all they want to, But the fact
    is a young man is dead, and it all started at the school, and that is quite a bit to try to sweep anyplace.

    Exactly.

  • Scromes1212

    Thank you for sharing

  • Faithz

    Great read, and just think many of these bad as kids grows up to
    cause ciaos all around the globe. Shooting up people, and places, shooting up the movie houses, blowing up chiiiii, and many are bitter each time they see their reflection in a mirror .

  • FallenOne

    I respect your post but may i say it also happens frequently in black communities but we as a culture do not address mental health issues nor seem to fully address bullying in all its open and subtle forms.

  • Faithz

    These kids now will threaten you, cuss u out, and tell the school officials, and police where they can go.

  • Faithz

    You are so right, she need to go to the school where the
    problem started, and came from.

  • Jackie Byrd

    Thank you so much for sharing your story and I really hope that you will seek being a motivational speaker to help others. We aren't perfect, but we all have a call to fulfill. So don't think just because you think of suicide sometimes you can't help others to understand that there is a solution other than suicide.

  • Faithz

    I feel you, this was overwhelming to me as well, such a loss , and so young. Time do heal all wounds, because it hurts right now, just as if he was someone in my own family.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I went to a mostly non black high school nicknamed "suicide high". Those white parents knew how to keep their business out of the media... along with the abortions their daughters got and arrests of their young white boys. I currently live in a mostly white area; my daughter is the only black child. The secrets these "homemakers" tell at Starbucks... yeah, I have receipts.
    I do agree we as black people shy away from the very real subject of mental illness ... while pointing out how mostly white people embrace mental illness as an excuse for their children's actions.

  • tintin

    this is beyond sad. whats even more sad is a 8 year old that contemplated this and went through with it. at 8 years old how does such a small child know about suicide. i hope those boys that beat him up are dealt with accordingly

  • Lady_Elle

  • stanley

    Wow... It's so important to talk to your kids. It's simply not enough to just feed and provide a roof over there heads. I was bullied too in High-school, and I never told a single person in my family. But they seen my decline as my grades started to fall to D's and F's. My family believed I just wasn't studying hard enough or not doing my homework, but in reality I was being bullied and was depressed. Couldn't make friends, and I just stopped caring about my education.

    Wow. I wish I knew this kid... It sucks that you can't protect them.

  • DidLEESquatTho

    so bad. Praying for his family.

  • Moon Lee

    This is outrageous behavior, the school should be held accountable! Terrible...

  • dontgetblocked

    They learn it at home. They'll get away with this one but in a few years, they'll be in juvenile detention, then jail and finally prison. How many more people will be knocked out and killed by then?

  • dontgetblocked

    And there kids are as dumb as rocks. Can't read. Stink. On drugs.

  • stanley

    They learn it from TV.. Even cartoons show violence... If you ever watched Bugs Bunny or the Roadrunner you would have seen knives, guns, bombs, etc.

    Kids should only be allowed to watch Care bears, Sesame street and other educational programming. But how many kids you know actually watch Empire? Practically "Millions". And lets not forget video games and Gangsta Music.

    I remember watching alot of sex and violence on TV when I was a kid.

  • Faux Gibbler

  • dontgetblocked

    More parents need to sit in the classrooms and see what teachers have to deal with. They can't teach because of the bad asses and if they discipline them, they're texting their mothers who come up there raising Hell. Teachers receive low pay and can't do their jobs because parents don't do their jobs. Then they wonder why their children turn out to be knocked up teens who work minimum wage jobs or go to prison. Watch Locked Up. Every story is the same..ruthless children who started out as bullies and thieves, then gangs and drugs and finally felons.

  • NicoleZee

    This is so heartbreaking. Why don't these ridiculous schools have a zero tolerance policy for bullying??? I know this can't be the first child these evil kids bullied. I say lock up the bullies and the stupid ass in denial parents! If my son ever bullies anyone, he won't need the principal or the police, he'll need the coroner! DO BETTER PARENTS!! SICK!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Most kids become friends after a little fist fight. The problem is the wimps today jump on one person. They beat this boy and knocked him out. No one got a teacher. No one went for help. This is too disturbing.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Oh My Dear God!
    I agree with the coroner only on one thing, yes it would be hard to believe that an 8 year old could even think of committing suicide and the lasting effects it would have on all those connected to them. But the times and type of world we are living in now, unfortunately this is the reality.

  • Malcom Flex

    Your sister is a typical bad mother. The denial is strong in these communities. You can tell a kid is a bully if the mom is on social media cussing people out. And I DO NOT HAVE KIDS PERIOD. Black women stay living in denial. If you're at home beating and cussing your kids as MANY SINGLE BW DO ...you're breeding a bully and future thug. "white people do it too" heffa stop lying. Also more white kids have a father at home to help raise the boys, unlike the 'I don't need a man' BW.

  • Malcom Flex

    What about fatherless kids beating up kids at school thugging on corners, etc. Daily black kids FN up and out much more than white kids.

    I have to agree. They push out these kids and neglect them. They go to school, get jealous and terrorize innocent children. Now this boy is dead while those baby criminals live to terrorize someone else.

    Bless your heart. Medication can help as well. Many times a chemical imbalance leads to suicidal thoughts. Mental illness is real and often more than counseling is needed.

  • V Dubb

    Yes maam these babies know more about it than most would understand. They can explain to you what it means and continue to explain why they choose to do it. I don't think they are really kids. They've been here before.....but yes....this is happending too much.

  • dontgetblocked

    To knock someone out and laugh while he's unconscious for ten minutes. They had been bullying this boy. Sorry, I just don't have any sympathy for a young child that is that cold-hearted. Let his time in the system begin. The other boy is in a grave.

    this is too tragic that poor child. I'm still trying to understand how an 8 year old knows what to do (suicide)...I hope this will always remain on the conscious of the little sociopath murderer in the making. I'm so sad for the mother...I would say though that if you are told your child faints for no apparent reason don't send them back next day or two (I know people have work) but monitor the child for the next week or two at home (see if there is a medical reason) ask them questions see if they are happy (generally and at school) make sure they know they are loved you will do everything in your power to protect them and that you can solve any problem together. if they tell you something alarming don't over react (in front of them) tell them you can work through it whatever it takes (could mean taking them out of school for time to recoup meanwhileyou go into school make sure something is done about the bullying, failing that takethem out of school find a new school, home school them...whatever it takes kids get anxious nervous and depressed don't dismiss it cause theyre small

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Bullying is real, and its dangerous. This child should not be dead. And I think its especially awful that his tragically short time on this Earth was dominated by the fear and violence of bullying, and such a terrible sense of isolation and loneliness that precluded that baby from even feeling as if he could trust his own mother.

    Sue that inept, incompetent and uncaring school system. And I think the DA should be investigating because multiple parties--particularly those savage kids--needs to be charged. Hold those kids accountable NOW. I don't care how old they are because clearly they have some very violent traits that need to be addressed right now.

    And little kids know a lot more than we sometimes give them credit for, thanks to social media and the Internet. I know 8 year olds who have multiple iPhones, tablets and more. I can see one being aware of suicide and how to put it in motion.

    I use get my but beat all the time in the 8th grade by a big gorilla looking muthafukkka. One time he hemmed me up in the bath room and lets just say I became part of the sink.
    Boy, I hurt like hell but was too ashamed to tell anyone because of the "we suppose to be tough myth" at that age.When I hit the 9th grade,I worked out dam near everyday until I was swoll. I could put down two big macs and still be hungry--no one dared to bully me after that.

    His mother is a passive and lazy idiot. And I don't care how wrong that sounds. An innocent gorgeous child hanged himself! When a child is being harmed parents don't send them back to harmful environments.

    My god, get off her complacent a-- and withdraw him from that school. Don't get her nails done and hair done anymore and live on rice and ramen noodle to put her child in a quality safe school.

    This poor gorgeous child was being terrorized at school by a little savage demon and everyone knew about it and they did nothing because its not politically correct to rid the schools of little terrorists.

    May this innocent gorgeous child rest in peace.

  • Elevated Soul

    Your entire comment is about your hatred of Black women.Set aside your issues and concentrate on the facts. The child was knocked out by a a bully and was out cold for 7 minutes. His classmates stepped over the child.The mother was called and she picked up her child,whom she was told had fainted. She took her child home. He vomited and then she took him to the hospital and he was diagnosed with a virus.Clearly the little boy feared the bullies and perhaps he even feared the school officials,since they'd lied to his mother. I will assume he and his mother talked about what he was told by them.

    You conveyed so much hatred for Black women. You assume so much about this woman and you don't even know her.....You seem to care more about hating this Black woman than you care about what happened to the child.

  • Rahab

    She was never told of the incident. The school should have called the ambulance when they found him unconscious. Instead of covering it up from the beginning. Mom took him to hospital after throwing up. He was released with diagnosis of stomach flu and stayed home one day. Still noone outside of the school knew he made contact with a cinder block wall. ?

  • StoneColdLady

    First let me say: My heart goes out to the parents of this child; now with that being said what has happened to our children? I am speaking of the "bully" and the "bullied" we had bully's growing up but our first thought was NOT suicide! If you were getting beat up you learned to defend yourself or got some help and our parents insured we had a healthy self-esteem. I honestly don't understand we are teaching our children if someone says they "don't like my shirt it is bullying and suicide is a possibility (not in this case)

  • Renee Bee

    So sorry that happened you. Hugs to you now and hugs to "the little boy" you.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Many are responsible for this tradegy- the children, the school, the parent, social media, society in general...

    It's ashame that the child didnt feel that he could talk to his parents or maybe the parents just weren't paying attention to the signs.

    Either way, a senseless loss of life.

  • the guest

    A good parent would not have returned their child to the school at the first instance. Period. You don't play Russian Roulette and second guessing with your child's well being.

    The school knew full well they had a child sociopath in their school and still permitted him among other children. How was that little terrorist even in the boys bathroom with a group and access to harm the other children.

    Sociopath children belong in the principal's office or detention.

    There is nothing "Dumb Azz" (I.e. would that be Ebonics for Ignorant?) about parents and a school taking every possible measure to protect innocent beautiful children who don't deserve to be terrorized by a child sociopath.

  • KLo

  • Judi Lauren

    This is so sad. What I don't understand is from the ride from the school to the doctor she didn't ask the child what happened? Or even when she picked him up? The first time I passed out I was a child and that was the first thing that my parents asked me when they came to pick me up from school. I unfortunately have a friend who had to go through this with her 13 yr old. I couldn't even begin to understand how she felt when she found her child same exact way. This is heart wrenching.

  • Yada Yada and etc.

    I am sorry but your comment sounds really insensitive. First of all, you can't speak on what "we" did back then because you also didn't have social media that connected you to a broader outside world to know what was going on. It's also easy to just say "well learn how to fight" but walk a day in this young man's shoes...an 8 year old kid is being alienated and humiliated by other students and he's a smaller kid and there is not one, but several bigger kids ganging up on him. I can only imagine what it is like having to live your life day after day in anxiety and fear. They also probably bullied him into not telling and even if he did, the retaliation from these bullies would have gotten worse because schools aren't addressing these issues effectively. Suicide was an extreme measure for to take, but let's learn from this and use the example to teach other kids, rather than condemning this little boy for not thinking like you or treating him like he did something wrong with him when all he was trying to do was go to school, get along and learn in peace. The most heartbreaking part about this story is how he tried to make peace by holding out his hand to shake the hand of the bully and in return that evil little focker bashes his head against a wall.

  • monique

    8 years old and took his life.....this is said. How long did he suffer from this bully? Is this bully, as well as those who kicked his unconcious body, suspended from school? How dare they blame his mother when they failed to give her all the information on what happened to her child.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Wow! I can't believe you actually wrote this like you really believe your own words. So the problem isn't the school covered up that the child had been bullied? So the problem isn't the fact that the adults turned a blind eye to a very serious problem within their school because they didn't want the bad press? But look at the outcome now, so I bet they wish they would have spoke up sooner. So the problem isn't the bully is showing signs of being a sociopath that if not removed away from other children, he will hurt again? So the problem isn't with the parent who is raising a bully and apparently was encouraging his behavior (the video showed he was proud of his actions)? There are so many things wrong with this situation but none of them are on the mother. How was she supposed to know if her child was too afraid to tell her and for some strange reason, didn't feel comfortable confiding in not one teacher (which speaks the truth about how safe and supported he felt in school). Those adults (the school staff) and that bully are on the same level of responsibility for this child's dèath. Victim blaming (like you're doing) is why things like this continue.

  • the guest

    Picked on is one thing, this gorgeous innocent boy was murdered at school. I have not one bit of sympathy for the child sociopath terrorist that murdered this child. Lock him up for life in an adult prison. Bet he won't be knocking out anyone there.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    The people who are blaming the mother are probably bullies or raising bullies themselves. Who in their right mind would find fault with the mother and she wasn't even aware of what was going on at first? Smdh

  • the guest

    The parents and the school knew this gorgeous innocent child was being terrorized at school and they did not protect him.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Totally agree. This was not that bullies first time abusing kids. He felt too dàmn comfortable doing it and even celebrated after that baby lost consciousness. The bully didn't even know if the little boy was déad or not but didn't even care. I'm sorry his aßß needs to be locked away from society before he kîlls again and charges and convictions needs to be handed out to all who turned a blind eye to the abuse of this boy. The school knew and did nothing. I bet if they liked the mother, they would have spoke up about what they saw happening to her child.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    That's what I thought. Look at how the other kids acted like he had kîlled a rodent and they decided to kick it too. That's a very serious thing that people are overlooking in this situation. The bully and the other kids acted like this was normal. And the school covered it up.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    This is so honest and true.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    First off I wasn't trolling commenting from my phone on this site is hellacious!! My phone froze while I was typing and I couldn't finish or correct what I was trying to say. So allow me to clarify I was in shock that she took her child to the ER and the damn doctor said he had a stomach virus that was an incorrect diagnosis which means the mother had no clue what was really going on with her son plus the school told her something different as well so how could she have known it wasn't her fault.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I'm starting to feel like that too. Bullies ARE violent and mentally ill but yet we are supposed to coddle them and continue to make excuses for their behavior instead of breaking a few bones and teaching their azzes a real lesson. These bullies and the adults who cover for them, need a dose of their own medicine. That's the only thing they understand. That will stop this because a talking to only makes them feel better about their behavior and that doesn't work or stop their behavior.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    And where the hèll is his father? I'm so sick of these men leaving their sons and daughters as prey for this world because paint drying on the darn wall is more important to them than raising a child that they helped make. Boys and girls need to know that a man will step up to speak up and protect them. Women (moms) can't always protect their sons no matter how much they want to or try. And plus the mom was probably too busy trying to do what can be hard for two parents (raise a child and work) to see the signs. The school knew what was going on and that's why they weren't honest from the beginning. Charges definitely needs to be filed against them too. What kind of adult see abuse of a child and does absolutely nothing. They might as well bullied the boy themselves.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    The parents of bullies think it's cute until one of the parents of the bullied, break bones in their child's face and body for fvcking with their child/children. They think their children are strong and real leaders for bullying other kids. The parents and their kids are mentally screwed up and society keeps giving people like them a pass. It's just easier for them to blame the mom and the boy instead of putting the blame where it really should be.

  • A J

    Place the bully in reform school. Sue the school, parents, and hospital. Also, the parents should do hundreds of hours of community service. The parents should also lose their public assistance if their getting any.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    May god bless you. It's time for these bullies and the schools that protect them to be exposed and dealt with accordingly. Society needs to stop blaming the bullied kids and their parents. So many children hide being bullied because of shame which leads to depression and even worse suicide. So many parents just don't know until the damage is already done. Thank God you survived and are able to tell your story to others. Hopefully you can encourage other kids to speak up about what's happening to them.

    Leviticus 24:17-21New International Version (NIV)

The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury. 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a human being is to be put to death.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    First, I'm so glad you didn't commit suicide and I don't even know you. I too know how childhood trauma can follow us right into adulthood and cause damage in our lives, on all levels. You didn't write too much because hopefully every word will be read by someone who has/is going through this. Many prayers to you and try to continue to be strong against those painful demons. I can truly relate to that level of mind numbing emotional pain. I too can relate to home not being a "safe place" as a child. I finally realized in my adult years that what happened to me and what my family tried to (and still try to) cover up was not my fault. Once your family has victimized you as a child or try to ruin your name, the flood gates open for society to do the same. I completely understand.

    The mother of the child did NOT know her child had been knocked out at school because NO SCHOOL OFFICIAL told her.What part of that do you NOT understand?...If the mother was uncaring as you allege,she wouldn't have even took her child to the doctor when he threw up....

    The story does not mention PARENTS.The story mentions the mother. Do you know something about this story that has not been mentioned here?

  • Cali

    This s hit makes me so sick!

  • Elevated Soul

    The child's father also lost a gorgeous 8 year old hung himself,so where is your blame for him?The parents of the child bullied are not to blame at all.....

    You have a hatred for Black women but this story is not about YOU and your hate for Black women. This article is about a child being bullied and he took his life because he was fearful of what would happen to him at school.

    Bottom line is that if the mother didn't care,she wouldn't have even taken the child to the doctor,she would have dismissed it.The doctor gave a diagnosis of a virus because he/she was told the child vomited so that's what /she looked for because like the mother,he was not privy to what happened at school.

  • Cali

    I won't watch it either, the image above is disturbing enough?????

  • Canary Red™

    Say it one more time PLEASE!

  • the guest

    A child is the parents utmost responsibility. This didn't go from 0 to 100 overnight. No school can cover up what parents sense about their child. You don't send a scared and sad 8 year old gorgeous innocent child back to an unfit school.

    You can look at the victimized child and tell he was of a better caliber than his child sociopath murderer. Parents have to be cautious of the elements they place their child around.

    I'm telling that gorgeous innocent deserved a higher standard of discretion and environment.

  • the guest

    My every comment refers to parents in the plural as my first assumption according to my values and reality is always a married two parent family.

    Taking your child to the doctor is par for the course of basic parenting. PARENTS (plural) don't send their child to bad environments.

    From the photo, that gorgeous innocent child could have a white mother therefore I am not holding only black parents accountable for the safety and well-being of their children.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I agree that he was definitely of a better caliber than those other kids. With that said, his mother was unaware because she was not told. She may be a single mom (I'm assuming because I haven't heard anything about the father), which means between raising him, working and everything else in life, the signs were missed. Yes our kids should be our greatest investment but no parent can catch everything. Plus, the school wasn't forthcoming with important information that could have saved this child's life. She just didn't know. Kids play sick to stay home from school all the time, so she may have not put two and two together. Don't blame the mom in this when adults who were present everyday and knew what was going on, kept quiet and even tried to cover up what she should have been informed of.

  • Canary Red™

    Like really - did we forget about Columbine or Sandy Hook. I get it some of our black folks have no home training but to cast a light on all black people and shadow the rest of the races is absurd! My God, folk act like white folks and other non black races hands are clean!!!! ?

  • NicoleZee

    This is just tragic. When I was growing up, everyone got bullied for something, but no one ever killed themselves. We took it and we either fought it out or dealt with it. My experience was different. Being bullied made me tough and I learned to fight back, so I was always fighting!! But damn, this story is just horrible. I hope to teach my son to fight back and if someone bothers him, he better make sure they ain't breathing after he's done with them. I got through those years by just fighting back whenever someone bothered me, and once I pulled a weapon on this one girl, no one ever bothered me again. Her dumb ass came to my house and she was about to get it. I'll never forget that. After that, everyone said I was crazy and that's when chicks started leaving me alone when they really thought I would try to kill them! And if my son ever gets cornered the way I did, I hope he does the same thing!! Kids today ain't shit, I wish a bully would run up on my son, the bully would be the one running if I have anything to do with it! FOH!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So sad that this happened.
    Maybe I'm a little naive, but I wouldn't think your average 8 year old would even know what suicide is, much less know how to carry it out.

  • NicoleZee

    These children are minors, so how is it that websites can post and stream videos like this??? Law enforcement and the government need to step in to stop this shit. What sick person would watch a video of a little kid being beaten??? I put these assholes in the same category as pedophiles. Anyone that would watch a video of a child being harmed in any way belongs under the jail like the rest of the sick creeps. Disgusting and sickening.

  • klwbaby

    I think its easy for u to say this because u are on the outside looking in. This mother was given false information and if u read about this on other sites, this school claims that they have no record or reported incidents of bullying going on with this child. Your other comments imply that his parents should have known he was being bullied. How?? Most kids never say a thing because they don't want to get bullied more and they don't want to be called a snitch or crybaby.

    A 2015 study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that for the first time, the suicide rate of black children in between the ages of 5 and 11 had doubled between 1993 and 2013?—?while the rate among white children had declined. Suicides by hanging nearly tripled among black boys in particular.

    The fact that he was able to do it "successfully" is bothersome. That poor baby. My kids are 10, 7, and 3 y/o twins. I couldn't imagine my 10 y/o even knowing the concept. This makes me want to love and hug her more everyday.

  • Maxima

    Too many of our children are not safe in school. Unfortunately, many children, especially black and brown children are subjected to violence and sexual assault -- by other students. I wrote to the attorney for the mother to find out how can we stop this at the legislative and legal level.

    As for those older boys who were nothing but bullies and punks, DON'T THINK for a minute they didn't tell that boy to kill himself, or they would! When you are that young, you are terrified by someone even two years older than you. Luckily, the police are investigating and hopefully serious charges will result. Those boys need to be in a juvenile detention center where those KKKraKKKa guards will put their asses in serious check and give them a whole new definition of bullying and fear.

    Children are mimics. He could have seen it on TV or he could have been playing with friends that pretended to be dead during playtime. My son is 19 months and he knows how to mimic what I am doing. If I scream, he'll scream, if I brush or comb my hair, he does the same, if I give him a big smile, he smiles back. Even babies as young as my son can act out something that they see not knowing the full intention of what they are doing. I'm starting to think that parents should get their kids some self-defense classes, give them a razor to carry, or just home school them to prevent situations like this. Hell, my son is already aggressive with a mean streak that he gets from me. I hope he beats the hell out of any dude that bothers him!

    This is so heartbreaking for me on so many levels. He was so adorable. RIP to him.

    I know what its like to be bullied by a whole bunch of hoodlums. I really wish hoodrats stop producing because then their children walk right in that hoodrat being a nobody cycle. SMDH! I truly hate bullies.

  • scentsychick30

    Shame this is so typical of cps,smh rip to this baby. Everyone should be fired for not tell alerting the mother.

  • scentsychick30

    So many turn a bling eye to bullying. I bet the bet the principal and staff knew he was being bullied. However they ignored it and this was the outcome. Hopefully reform comes from this tragedy.

    I use to get bullied by a girl at school which everyone including the boys was afraid of a by a girl that lived next door to me. Well my breaking point at school was when the girl put spit on her hand and rubbed it across my face. I went upside her head with my metal lunch box and I had anymore problems out of anybody at school. I cracked the bish next door head with a skate and never had anymore problems with her or anybody in the apartment complex.

  • Ms Thang

    I know what it's like to be bullied as well. I'm just so happy that I stood up for myself. Unfortunately one of them had to learn the hard way and ended up with a few stitches in her head.

    wow you think a child should carry a razor?

  • IamAllnatural

    If a parent gives a child a razor, they both will go to jail.

  • IamAllnatural

    So who is to blame? Children are a product of their parents.

  • the guest

    THANK YOU. Exactly.

  • the guest

    Thank goodness for your comments on this thread. Society has manipulated black people into sympathizing with and accepting "hoodrat" elements.

    When a parent walks into a school or any environment and sees certain elements they should not leave their children there. I can tell by the photo those "hoodrat" sociopath kids were not fit for decent children to attend school with. Underestimating hoodrat sociopath kids will continue to lead to the harm of normal good children.

    You are exactly right that those sociopath hoodlum kids taunted that gorgeous innocent child to kill himself. You can tell by the photo that the victimized child was a good soul and deserved a better environment. He should not have been in a ghetto school. May not be politically correct but its true.

  • the guest

    Agreed. Thank you for your dialog. I just feel did it have to get to bullying? I can look at those bully sociopath kids and tell I would never leave my children around them. I am not blaming the mother but she has accountability for her lack discernment and caution on behalf her child. Bullying can be prevented before it even gets to bullying.

  • the guest

    The TROLLS are the people who direct profanity, cure words, and profane and ignorant name calling such as "Dumb Azz" toward other commenters.

    I am not a troll nor a racist for expressing grief over the tragic terrorizing and loss of that gorgeous innocent child to bullying from sociopath child murderers in a depraved school.

    It is Ebonics and such language as "Dumb Azz" should be beneath any self respecting proud black adult.

    Interesting that you are on a thread about bullying and you are using foul bullying language and inciting others to gang up with you in use of that ignorant verbal assault. No wonder where the sociopath name calling assaulting sociopath terrorist kids get it from.

    From parents who call people "Dumb Azz" for expressing their point of view. You are a bully!

  • the guest

    I will not be bullied into silence and would never curse at and bully others into silence.

    This is not just about physical ailment and treatment. This boys spirit was low. His heart was broken. His parents knew something was wrong.

    Parental intuition and gut instinct would be to make the sacrifice necessary to keep your good child home away from the school environment.

  • the guest

    Agreed. There is accountability all around.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    My heart aches for this family, I cannot fathom it. ....I know the bully feeling too well in elementary, may this little angel rest in peace.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    Something strange about the hanging, a little boys tie is not very long at all,
    about half the size of mans. A child bunk bed for saftey reason is not very high. The tie material is not very strong.

    When you think of all these things, plus he had know idea what he was doing.....

    He never spoke to his ,mom??????

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    She deserved it.

    To all the Mothers and prayers for this Mother and the countless ones like her. Happy Mother's Day. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/915a70dee5cfc4aab8b1e70e31b2ab2d202aa4f027081ec6b805ecf2cfa2faf1.jpg

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    I saw a news cover where the mother of the boy spoke about the incident. Where is the father? Why is it everytime something tragic happens in the Black community to a young man, you never hear from the father? The Black community needs help. Too many women are raising sons themselves. We need mothers and fathers in the same household as the children. Everyone in that house needs to have the same last name! Was the young boy talked to about bullying and how to protect himself from the parents?! We are to the point where parents need to send their kids to school with live body cams. Most fights always happen in the bathroom. There needs to be adult bathroom attendants near the entrances at all times. I will NOT be allowing my kids to go to a public school.

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    I ONLY got picked on and bullied by other Black kids. They learn this behavior from their hood @$$ parents.I do my best to avoid known Black areas and events. Smh.

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    It's not his fault. Yt supremacy made him do it. Also, whites bully each other too so why single this young black man out when he is only a product of his environment? It's a shame that we can't just say he made a mistake and move on. No one made the young boy kill himself so blaming the young bully for making a mistake is harsh don't you think?

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    Wow calling a young Black child demonic? Smh. What about these Neanderthals? They are more demonic than we are. They eat each other.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    I'm not sure if the mom was required to volunteer at the school or not (which would have given her a better view of what her child was around daily). I know when most parents drop off and pick up their kids, they don't get to see those bad azz kids who are bullies in full action. Those types of children know how to hide their behavior, while the child who's being bullied parent is present. But I bet everything that the school was very much aware but just chose not to tell the mom what was going on, because they never expected something like this to happen. It shouldn't have taken him to be kîlled, for them to half way speak up. As of now, they still haven't released a statement taking any responsibility in this. I believe if this little boy wouldn't have died, they wouldn't have ever told the mom. Pretending that they weren't aware, (for right now) covers there behinds from a lawsuit. Any person at that school with a heart and a drop of honest blood in their system would step forward and tell the truth. But as we see, that has not happened. Now other kids are coming forward saying they were bullied too but I bet the school will say they weren't aware of those kids situations too. Just continuing to lie. Basically the adults in that school are useless because even though their job is to teach kids and report any abuse, they dropped the ball deliberately to save the schools reputation and unfortunately, at the expense of other kids being bullied and this little boy losing his life. My heart breaks for his mother. As much as we want to protect our kids from this sometimes cruel world, we can't be there all the time and for everything, so we depend on the adults who have we have trusted our children with, to do the right thing. It seems like they are failing in large numbers because this situation is becoming common.

    Yes, but they want to keep the school district out of it and keep they're suspension/detention stats low. Welp, the district is in it now:

    "Lean On Me - Responsibility of Teachers"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng3rp7uffe8

  • SuperScooper1

    That aside, everyone is mad at Betsy DeVos for talking about school vouchers...Frankly, it's a discussion that we need to have. We cannot have bright capable, children mixed in with the progeny of the crack epidemic who have no intention of ever making anything of themselves and don't want to learn.

    Yes, there's enough blame to go around re: institutionalization but it might be time to weed out the bad seeds, or at least allow an exit to better things for bright kids who want to learn. I was a school accountability activist in Philadelphia in undergrad and I've had it with bad teachers and districts where the top administrators make themselves fat off tax dollars with no money trickling to schools. Did you know there are still schools using books from the Carter Administration? GW Bush, even Obama did very little to hold people accountable and maybe it's time for radical alternatives.

    Sorry, not sorry.

  • Dowoop

    Wait until your kids meet the really "entitled" kids at private school and their parents can buy them out of any situation. Private school does not guarantee security just as public schools does not guarantee a poor education. I do however agree that in this day and age we should be talking to our kids about bullies and how to deal with them because if that was my child...God alone knows.

  • Renee26

    Shame on them for trying to blame the mother! The school system and the parents of those mean kids are to blame for this. The school needs to be held accountable for not disclosing the full incident to the mother. Bring the initial child and his mother up for manslaughter charges. I bet if more parents were charged for their kids out of control behavior some things would change. Oh and yes, 8 year old children DO contemplate suicide. I have heard it too many times; it takes a strong support system to change their ways of thinking.

  • SuperScooper1

    No, but it does ensure there are at least SOME checks and balances in place to prevent these things. Yes, there have been recent scandals at Miss Porters, St. Paul's etc but they were an anomaly not an every day occurrence.

    Because of the nature of this system it's time to start finding solutions so Blacks don't become a permanent underclass. The best education you can afford for your children may be the solution for some families, or perhaps moving to better tax bases? Or perhaps we need to turn inward like Indians and Pakistanis in America and have our own Spelling Bee contests, Math Olympics, etc. because we can't depend on the government to make sure our children are educated.

  • Dowoop

    I agree with you. Education is key with our children if we intend the break the cycle that have kept so many of us down. That was something my mother always stressed and it will something i continue to stress to my children.

  • SpiceGirl

    from the video itself....ALL the kids that walked,kicked,looked and KEPT it moving, should be held accountable! For those who think other wise....yeah ok.....if that was YOUR kid laying on the bathroom floor...im pretty sure they would feel the same. Just sad on SOOOOO many levels...prayers to his family!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now this is what I'm talking about!!! Lil bish got what she deserved!!!

  • Diva4lyfe

    This story and that video is a sad sad situation. It hurts my heart to see him trying to be the peacemaker and shake this mofo hand then he does that to him. Then to see all those kids walk past him and did nothing is so sad as well. Someone should have been wise enough to go get help what in the world are we teaching our kids nowadays, so the bully child must do this a lot that the others are scared. Then not to give the mom all the info and I am sure they seen the video before a request was made to look at it and still didn't inform the mom. I wish they charge the boy like an adult but I know they won't. It is sad all the way around. God bless his soul and his parents. That would totally be a hard pill for me to swallow. RIH Gabe Taye. God got you..........

  • Quitedeliteful

    So tragic... A beautiful little boy is dead and now what happens to his bully??? Does he go to juvie??? The school is definitely responsible for not being honest with the mother but something has got to be done about the fugging bullies!!!

  • the guest

    THANK GOD it's being ruled a homocide.

    Send all the little sociopath bullies to prison or mental institutions for life because they cannot be rehabilitated. Sociopaths are not curable. For all they knew the victim was dead and they kicked and walked over him. That kind of depraved indifference to life at such a young age is to be taken very seriously.

    These kids if released at 18 will be even worse terrors on their communities.

  • Renee Bee

    Continued blessings.

  • Vegas1989

    This is so sad that an 8 year old CHILD took his own life because of a dumb @$$ bully...I wished that he would have told the school officials and his mom what really went down and call the POLICE!!!

  • the guest

    There's always exceptions to a rule, but as a rule, private schools are safer, better quality, and stronger academically.

    As a rule, inner city and predominantly black schools are of poorer educational quality and less safe environments.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    God I hope you're kidding. He made a mistake and a kid is dead because of his mistake. IT's called consequences for your actions. You make the wrong mistake on your job, an empty box will be waiting for you. We have to hold these kids accountable at the level they are committing the crime. He's 8, get a slap on the wrist. You honestly think his next crime will not be 10x's worse or even deadly (at his hands).

    This is why so many of these young people schit on authority now cuz of their age and not being punished. No, he didn't kill the lil guy, but you got in his head so bad he thought to take his own life.

  • AListDiva29

    This makes me sad, and furious at the same time! Too many school district's protecting the stupid bullies, and blaming the victims! When will it all end?!

  • POW!!!

    Who is this coroner? Just because he finds it hard to believe that the boy would commit suicide, doesn't mean that it didn't happen. What does the evidence say?

  • pynkrose407

    OMG this is so heartbreaking...**tears*** I am heartbroken, I have two boys around this age and I express clearly tell me whats going on daily, and if this kids are this way in elem school what the hell are they parents doing and what about the teachers, my kids at their school are not to walk along ..And this coroner WTF is he thinking a homicide??? Really this is a sad case and a ball dropper on the school behalf

    Hung by his necktie? From a bunk bed? Really?? Hmmmm sounds like foul play! Did the mom even ask the boy what happened? My child fainted, I want a full diagnosis. Run every test twice and keep him overnight for observation. Kids don't just faint

  • Dr.Rue

    The bully is probably being tortured at home. CPS needs to step in. I don't think the bully should go to prison. He didn't actually kill him.

  • Tee Bullock

    Omg, sorry u had to go through that but glad u beefed up and no one would try u again!

  • Quitedeliteful

    No, he didn't actually kill him but I'm wondering what sort of punishment is appropriate. The bully is just a kid but my goodness!!! Someone died because of his heartlessness. Maybe he shouldn't got to Juvie but he should have mandatory counseling for a number of years...

  • Liah

    HOW DO AN 8 YEAR OLD KNOW HOW TO DO THIS???...THIS WORLD IS SOOOO SOOO SAD!

  • Denise Knight

    I think the coroner wanted to make sure that the bully, school, or CPS took the blame for his bullying and eventually his suicide/murder.

  • Dorthea Collins

    My niece goes 2 that school n she gets bullied 2. Can't remember ur name, but u right maybe something is going on at home. Most bullies get it from home n it's sad that ppl wont take responsibility for their kids actions wen u know where it's comn from. (HOME). Now another family got 2 live with ur fukd up parentn skill. REST N PEACE GABE.
