but the bullies keep winning: Amanda Todd Nov. 27, 1996 - Oct. 10, 2012

Amanda Todd, a Port Coquitlam area teenager who posted a video on YouTube last month about being cyber-bullied, was found dead Wednesday night... Authorities believe she committed suicide.

" ...People are on her Youtube video right now asking for the pictures, saying things like “dumb bitch deserved it”, “rot in hell slut”, and “this world is not for the weak”, and generally exposing themselves as the sorts of bullying shitheels this internet is so desperate to protect under the rubric of “free speech”...
