    This shows that education should start to focus more on building up one's emotional strength and mental well-being. He should have been taught how to deal with bullying. It is tragedic to see how such an apparently happy child is suffering through so much internally.

    And even worse, the bullies are also young children who are likely to be suffering from things of their own and in need of help themselves, and Bradley's death, like Shelly-Louise wrote, would likely to haunt them for the rest of their lives. I really don't think it was wise to remind them of their guilt, they are children with emotional weakness too, who might have never imagined things would end up this way.

    Tragedy. May his soul rest in peace.

    Same here. I'm sick of hearing how many soldiers died in Iraq and other stuff that you hear all the time. At least the Daily Mail is more entertaining.

    You shouldn't feel silly, this forum is populated by students many of whom are far left and suffering from a mental disorder called liberalism,the majority of them are on prozac because secretly they know their world view is skewed,and everyday the world throws up situations and issues that they can't understand or handle. The prozac itself addles their minds and allows them to feel comfortable in their delusions.

    That is why you should post daily mail stories as much as possible,because one day lightening may strike and they become normal .The other reason for the Mail hate, is because the previous government used their media ops to try and demonise and mail and make it out to be as insane as possible ,this is because certain daily mail commentators went after tony blairs family and made personal comments . They have never forgotten or forgiven it. Iam surprised actually that richard little john has not been found in a wood dead after slashing his own wrists with a mach 3 razor.

    Remember the mail is the second most bought news paper in the UK, I'd wager some people don't hate the mail as much as they would have you think.It is similar to fox news,liberals would have you believe, that it is only watched by a minority of the extreme right, yet fox political commentators get the highest ratings in the united states. The only news commentators on the liberal channels like mscbc, can only dream of those ratings.

    His so called "friends" who blasted the bullies on facebook should have stuck up for him IN school. People who just stand by and let others get bullied are almost as bad as the bullies themselves- it's disgusting.

    Awwww, why didn't he sought the problem. I feel so sorry!

    They used to a boy in our school before and he used to have a really funny voice, like he was an 89 year old man. A very weird one, everyone took the mic. I never I felt so tight and prayed he got someone to help him. He did. Now a teacher always comes to him with his lessons. Everything is soughted and now he is happy coming to school.

    I would not be surprised if the article in question has painted a hugely simplistic picture of the situation. A sane rational person does not go and kill themselves because of a few taunts from 'bullies'. The bullying against this child was probably far more severe, because bullying can get to such extreme levels with teachers powerless to stop it.

    You are completely ignorant of how bullying works. 99% of the time, it is not as easy as that. A teacher can tell off a child or give them a detention, but the only realistic way to eliminate bullying is to expell the 'bullies', which, of course, will not happen, or for the victim to move schools, which is a drastic measure. Meanwhile, you simply can't penetrate the group ethos of bullies, nor the subtle methods of bullying that 'bullies' employ. Just because a teacher is with this "weird" child, does not mean that suddenly "Everything is soughted". Also, coming forward about a problem can be very difficult. You can quite easily get labelled a "grass" and things get even worse. Even as someone apparently sympathetic to him, you call him "weird". And there's always room for cyber-bullying.

    He was found hung apparently

    Reverse survival of the fittest? Elimination of the 'fittest', he was supposedly intelligent, well spoken and middle class

    Hi ok, no problem, but you know in my school, they dont go in the words of going severe, so obvisously the school boys taunting him, would not let go of him I know exactly how it feels because I was bullied for the same reason

    Your trolling is about as subtle as an elephant in a kitchen.
    And about as useful as a chocolate teapot.
