Just weeks before Amanda’s death, she wrote on her facebook:
“I’ll just go f**k myself, just like u said baby, then ill go kill myself, with these pills, this knife, this life has already done half the job. -___-,”.
The teen died 6 days after she jumped in front of a bus just two days after Christmas.
Well if you think that the Bully has ended now that Amanda is dead, it has not. Instead of people learning the effects of bullying they have decided to write nasty comments about Amanada on a memorial page on facebook even after her death.
Here are a few comments and things that have been posted. I honestly think that facebook and the police need to do an investigation and close down the accounts of those that continue to bully and the police need to charge them with harassment.
A funeral service is being held today at St. Ann’s R.C. Church, Dongan Hills.
