It’s really a shame that such a malicious prank ended in the loss of a life. The two pranksters should feel like total shit right now. They will never be able to escape this, and nor should they. There is nothing right about what they did. There is nothing fair about bullying. Calling them assholes in print is just not enough.
If only our country could set a good example in not bullying gays as well.
Stupid quote describing the prankster’s character:
“I think he’s a good person,” said a neighbor and former classmate. “I don’t think he’s a homophobe. It would’ve been no different if it was a girl in the room.”
I have a feeling that it would have been VERY different. Probably topped off with a round of applause for Tyler for sexing some chick on webcam. Not with ridicule and suicide. Ugh.

Its really a shame how people treat eachother, it truly is. We are our own worst enemies.
What is going on with people now-a-days? Growing-up I thought things would get better because all the changes that was happening. People were trying to be politically correct, actors and actress were coming out, It seemed like things would be better by the time we all reached this point in time. Are parents teaching their children this? Are they getting it from their peers at school? I don’t understand and I guess I never will. I just have to take-it that people are mean by nature and some of us enjoy ridiculing, battering and taking away someone’s right to live a peaceful life. I have to learn that there are people that have a mental disorder to feel the need to be uncivil and hurt other people. I was hoping that we all could have grown-up by the time I’ve reached this age (not saying) but I guess not. God bless the souls that suffered from the torment of others to the point they felt the need to take their own lives. And God, forgive those that felt the need to bring so much pain to them… What a twisted world we live in.
