    It’s tragic. Kids can be so cruel, the bullies will have to live with this for the rest of their lives once they grow up and realise what they’ve done. Sadly they are encouraged by the Bachmans and Livelys of the world and those that come onto websites such as this to vent their homophobia.

    So these evil bastard homophobe kids are suspended. Well that will teach them not to bully and gay bash won’t it? How about the parents of these suspended kids, Why hasn’t the media beaten a path to their doors to make them explain why they taught their kids to do what they did to Jamey?

    1. I certainly agree that some blame should be placed on the parents and be treated legally as part of it.

  3. Where did the children who gay bashed Jamey get the idea that he should kill himself or be better off dead, Christians, http://www.evilbible.com/Murder.htm

    Way too little, way too late for poor Jamey, but let’s hope that a message starts to get sent out that this is not acceptable today.

    If kids chanted RACIAL abuse at other students, there would he hell to pay.. This must also be the case for homophobic abuse and bullying. It’s a HATE CRIME.

    The State needs to pass an anti-bullying law just like Ontario has done.
    This is so damned tragic and makes me cry when I hear children taking their lives for this reason.
