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

http://pastorchrisjordan.wordpress...

**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!

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.

Ella Thomason's curator insight, January 24, 2013 11:22 PM

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. 

Carter Griffin's comment, January 25, 2013 7:51 AM
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.

This story reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because both kids are bullied for being different. August is bullied for not looking "normal" and the boy in the movie is bullied for being smarter than "normal." People who join in on bullying are less likely to get bullied themselves. They can become friends with the bully and escape the torments of being a victim. In my opinion, parents are not very useful in preventing bullying. In most cases, kids don't want to tell their parents that they are being bullied, or they will sound like a snitch. The role that the kids play is much more crucialthan the parents. Obviously, your parents are going to stick up for you, but what you really need is for other kids to help you. If the bullies finds themselves out-numbered, they may back down.

This movie reminds me of Wonder because it is about a boy who is getting bullied because of his physical appearance. I think join bullies because they think that the bully is cool and knows if he's on the bully's side, then he won't be the next target. Parents can do speeches and assemblies to tell kids how to prevent bullying, but, at the end of the day, if a bully wants to hurt someone physically or emotionally, they will despite actions of adults. The role of adults is smaller because bullying usually occurs when adults are not around. Also, most adults don't really understand bullying because it is different now than it was when they were growing up. Parents can prevent bullying by making sure their kid isn't the bully and helping their kid. Kids can help by being nice to kids that get bullied a lot or telling their friend if they are bullying someone, because usually the bully doesn't even realize the extent of their bullying until later.

This trailer reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because of a couple different reasons. The first one, of course, is that he was bullied at school, but it also reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because he did not want to go to school because of the mean kids, which relates to August's excuse. I think that it would be tempting to join in on bullying because the bullies are usually the cool kids, so you feel like agreeing with the cool kids will make you cool. I think that parents play a big role in bullying because a victim of bullying to tell his mom or dad, without anyone knowing. I would think, and hope, that the bullys' parents do not want the children to bully, so if the bullied child's parents told the bully's parents, the bully would most likely get into trouble. However, a common reason for bullying is a lack of a family life, so in some cases, telling the bully's parents may not stop anything. I think that a parent's role in bullying is smaller than the child's, because the child has to stand up for himself at one point, and have the parents as a backup plan. If the child can learn to be strong and stand up for himself, he will eventually be strong enough to not be to hurt by bullying. THis will let the victim be able to overcome bullying completely, and the whole problem will be solved.

Julian's Story, Bullying -> Bullycide: a suicide caused from bullying and depression
Morgan Mathis's insight:

Why do you think that young kids commit suicide and do you think they know about how death is and what it does to other people? Why didn't the school help? Why, did they just say, "boys will be boys." Did you think that the parents did a good job on helping her kid? Why? Why do you think this boy chose to hang himself?

comment continues: . The parent, in my point of view, was only trying to help and did all she could do. she could not of stopped him from committing suicide. I think the boy just felt he should not of been in the world and no one wanted in it. The boy was not thinking of his family or any one just what the ones that bullied him thought.

Morgan Mathis's comment, January 30, 2013 5:04 PM
I believe that young kids kill themselves because of feeling unvalued. No one should feel like they are of no importance in the world we live in today. We need to help these kids and tell them that they are here for a reason, and not let what other people say get in the way of their destiny.I also agree with you about them not knowing that it will hurt others too. Little children don't know how hard it is on others when someone passes. They shouldn't know because they have not been alive long enough to know how it feels to have someone close to you die.
