**XXTreme's Help Needed! "Arrest Cyber Bullies Responsible for Amanda Todd's Death"


**Royal Canadian Mounted Police & Canadian Security Intelligence Service

Cyber bullying is a serious crime that needs to be addressed. Please show authorities that we want the people that bullied Amanda Todd to death arrested and held responsible for their actions. We may have not been there to help Amanda when she was alive but we can do something to make a difference...
Do not let Amanda's death be in vain. Making these people accountable for their actions could help to change cyber crime laws in the future. Making a difference; one signature at a time!

Audrey Elaine Barr's insight:

What do you think made her think she should flash anyone? Why did the guy want to embaras her? What would you have done in this situation? Why do think people want to hurt others in this way? What do you think Amanda did after posting this video?

I really liked your video and insight talking about Amanda Todd and her story. Connecting it to inclusion which we talked about in class and how we should include others more often was interesting. I like how you said she needs someone to talk to and someone to include her and comfort her. All she needs is a good friend. You did mention that you think if they gave her more attention she might feel better but I think she already has a lot of attention, it's just the wrong kind. Amanda has even gained more followers and attention on Facebook because of what that person posted. However, I think she could really use some good positive attention. Like you said, if a good friend or close family member had talked to her and comforted her she would have received the right attention and had someone she could trust. Then maybe she would have felt included and perhaps begin to experience some happiness which might have changed her life.

Amanda Todd made cyberbullying a big deal after her death. I didn't know about cyberbullying until my mom made me watch the video it really scared me, someone had to die to get this type of bullying noticed. I really like in the video how she told the complete truth about everything. She wanted people to know exactly what they were doing to her. I like how Mitchel related Amanda Todd to inclusion. For one wrong thing she did everyone excluded her. She kept on trying to learn from her mistakes but when people put you down and take away all hope of you ever learning, you give up. Mitchel wrote that people could have helped her by giving her the attention she needed but I think her parents were trying to help her by moving around alot and trying to keep a positive mind. She probably tried talking to her parents but it is really hard to find someone that can understand what you're going through because it is not them that's in the middle of all of it. It is very true that we have to be cautious of what we are saying on the Internet we could hurt people and not even know it. If I ever met her before she died I would say high school only last four years. If you keep running away you will seem weak so tell yourself you can do it and stand up to all the people who are bullying you because when school ends so does the bullying. I really don't know if that would help but at least I tried. In our world people are really cruel I think we need to take bullying as seriously as drunk driving or drugs for people to understand.

I agree with you. Amanda Todd was bullied in almost every way possible, such as cyber bullying, verbal and physical. The amount of bullying and number of times she tried to solve the problem by moving schools and cities and eventually committing suicide is very serious. I think more people should be more aware bullying. Many people do not know how serious bullying is to victims. I like your explanation that inclusion could solve bullying, which it could in some circumstances, but I think showing what the effects of bullying may be able to stop bullying in the future. I agree that the video is about treating others the way you would like to be treated, but I think you also could have added that she wants to show bullying is more serious that it may seem. Bullying is a very serious matter and I think this video shows that very well along with Mitchel Coelho's response.

An online fund-raising drive for a 68-year-old Rochester woman who was brutally taunted by a group of 12- and 13-year-old boys has proved hugely successful.

In my opinion, these boys did this because they thought that they would become popular, and they would gain attention. i think that the seventh grade boys posted this to be funny. This action was a mistake! If they thought that there was any humor in this, they were just plain desprite for attention. There is nothing funny about this. The boys probably didn't have an inspiration to this horrible act. My response to this is NOT laughter. My response is anger and sadness.

I believe that these boys bullied this woman to amuse their peers and gain popularity among their friends. I think they probably uploaded the video to YouTube for the same reason. They thought they would be famous for bullying this woman, and they are, but not in a good way. These kids should be ashamed for what they did. This is just plain cruel.

     I think the boys were insecure and wanted to become popular. They probably were insecure about their weight, the amount they sweat, and their hearing. They also thought that doing this would make them popular and cool. 


     They posted the video on youtube because the boys probably thought that doing this would make them cool and popular. If they spread the word about it the boys thought that it would make them more popular.


     The boys'motivation was to feel better about themselves and to gain attention by becoming popular.


     This article horrified and sickened me while it brightened my day at the end. it is just shocking that anybody would do such a crime, especially to a grammother. The way Max Sidorov responded is just amazing. he raised massive amounts of money for Mrs. Klein. Finnaly, raising money for Max Sidorov is a great idea. Giving kindness back to the giver is the best way to respond to anything like this.
