A tragic story

there was a news story on AOL today about a mom who killed herself and her disabled teenage daughter after years of harrassment and torment by a gang of kids in their neighborhood in which police ignored


the gang members did terrible things to them such as threw flour ,eggs and stone at the family's home and thusted fireworks into the family's mailbox.the harrassment and torment of this special needs family went on for over a decade and the police did nothing which resulted in this mom committing a murder suicide .


you can read more about this story on AOL then tell me what you think of this.


i think that this mother was extremely depressed over her and her daughters situation and because the police pretty much ignored the reports,she felt like she had no way out.in other words.she felt as if they were trapped.and i believe that the torment and harassment of these ignorant kids may have drove this mom mentally ill

That is a terrible story, but if it is not a debate topic, it should be posted below under "Off Topic" discussions.

This is so very sad. The bully mentality is still very alive and well in our society. Where has compassion gone?

It sounds sad. But I don't read AOL.
