Student: "I'm upset." "You should give me "A's" on all my finals and the rest of the school year off."

Counselor: "Fuck off." "You ain't the one who's dead." "Go back to class."

I'm sure these kids see more violence and trauma on TV and in their own families. They may not even recognize this as real. Everything is a show to them.

Just keep tellin your kids that it was a suicide, right after you explain why there was a hood on the head and the bodies hands were tied behind their back and it was 2 feet off the ground and nothing around for the body to have jumped fro.

I heard it was a good old-fashioned lynching.

If I was a negro I'd hang myself too knowing I'd never be better than white people.

Wow! My son went to that school. For any of you to make the comments you have is just shocking to me. For the record...my son is white...so I don't want any prejudice shit. You sick fucks all need help. What the fuck is wrong in the world when people like you make fun at something like this. O hope you all don't have to go through the pain of a suicide in you family. I have gone through it and no matter what the circumstances are, it's awful. Especially seeing it though childrens eyes. You should all be ashamed...ypu are the pieces of shit that make this world scary tp live in.

Thank you. I appreciate that. I have a sick sense of humor and say things that other people would probably not laugh. My son and I joke and say we live in the hood. I was raised in Raytown and went to school in Raytown as well. But I haven't met a mean kid that goes to my sons school. What pissed me off is the comment of obe assuming that all the kids on that us sees worst things in their own home. I lived in Overland Park, KS for a while and I felt sorry for the friends my son had. Parent s never home...etc. The kids my son hangs out wuth now are good kids with loving families that care. Raytown is a small friendly town. And for someone to make fun of suicide is just wrong....especially a child. No one should have to witness that...especially children. Again thank you...
