Damn, she was only 13? How awful. The poor girl's father is a psychopath for treating her that way, and the police are just as bad for supporting him. I also think he should face criminal charges, as well.

While it is truly a tragedy that the girl committed suicide, I wouldn't qualify the father as psychotic just on this. It is a pretty piss poor parenting move on his part for what he did to say the least. All that being said, I don't think he did anything criminal. The father should certainly be investigated, because I doubt this is really the whole story. This kind of stuff doesn't really happen because of a single video. Unless something else is found though, I don't think the father should be charged. The law can only go so far without doing more harm than good, and I think parenting is one of those areas where we as a society have to be very careful in how far we want to regulate it, etc.

The parent did nothing that would make him face criminal charges unless the rumors of the abuse was true in which that is the school's fault. This girl over-reacted by jumping off a bridge if it was just due to her hair cut off.

The father is shit for sure and I don't know about criminal charges for that, but why are kids so... using a term they're very familiar with, soft these days? No disrespect to the kid, but suicide? Over that? I don't quite get that. Surely the kid didn't arrive at the conclusion just on that one scenario...if so that's kind of sad in a lot of ways on its own.

There are plenty of people that kill themselves everyday over stupid shit just like this. We don't know what her mental health was like before her hair was cut off. Maybe she was unhappy with her life before it happened, just not that unhappy to end it. However, once her hair was cut off, that may have been all she needed to come to the decision to kill herself. Sometimes all it takes is just one more thing (no matter how big or small) to push a person over the edge.

I'll just state the obvious... Suicide is not a rational decision; of course you don't understand why she did it. However, her father is a huge asshole, I hope his family punishes him harshly.

Fuck the father. Publicly shaming your kids its fucking awful and a horrible way to punish them. Your not fucking teaching your kids a lesson by throwing them to the fucking dogs your just being an asshole.


Honestly we have gotten to soft on discipline most kids these days are entitled and spoiled beyond all belief. Its likely this girl had mental issues anyway could have explained her behavior problems.

If I am going to take a look and assume from whats written and from the 2 videos that is, she looked tired (maybe something between daughter and father since both looked a bit down and he was usally on the other side + he looked a bit angry about something and maybe don't have that stable mind about her or using her as a dummy to release all anger on)

So what I think from the picture she send was to comfort herself with her own beauty online (facebook/instagram etc) and when the one took that support of happiness (atleast what she thought at the time) making all of her break into something she would think nothing will better now leading to this?

I am thinking that man should be set through a hells month training or something (try to make very hard discipline on him to see how he likes it though and try to become something the rest of the family can depend on, so that not all of them will fall into dispair like the little sister and brother)

Wow, talk about piss poor reporting! It is amazing what 10 seconds on Google turns up...
The father and mother did nothing to warrant criminal charges nor the call to protective services that the school did place. The parents stated a punishment for a behavior, the teenager performed said behavior, the teenager suffered said punishment (all good so far, even according to the school and protective services), father gave the video to daughter, daughter shared the video, school counseling began with full knowledge of parents, and finally teenager commits suicide.

It really helps if you get the facts straight and present the case as it is. You can find a ton of info if you do a search for news agencies that don't just quote others but do the research themselves.

I'll put these all together, since the response is the same; why is her father to blame when he never made any of it public and had warned her that using social media to post pictures of herself would result in loss of her hair? Vanity is a huge issue in some households, since it is treated as sin. Hair grows back, and very fast following a massive cut. Baldness is temporary for her.

like this? (and most of the responses are for what we get here even though some could have different stories)
"The force of Lazamana's landing was so severe that had the teen jumped closer to the driver's side, she too could have died.
'The roof caved in half an inch from my head,' Frutos said. 'I could have lost my life, too, if she had fallen onto me.'

As the teen came to a crash, Frutos said she focused on keeping the steering wheel straight and then drifted to a stop."

"She does have mixed emotions about the way the teen's actions threatened her own life.
'I’m kind of angry about it,' Frutos said. 'My family is, too'."

Yes, that is some actual research from the event. However, almost everyone has been responding as if the father shared the video. It was uploaded to YouTube by the girl...

She appears to have been mentally ill, the school and family became aware of it, she was getting counseling of some form, and then she jumped. As a nurse, we try to stop this type of stuff from happening, but we are limited on what we can do. It is sad that she jumped, but the father, family, and school are not to blame in this case.

the counseling and about dealing with this sorta thing as a nurse can be even more of a game changer, either it can do way worse then what you thought it would do (like thinking this should help them right?) or smash the grenade or taking out the steam that will mostly lead to sensable situasjon where you actually could/can begin talking with them and that they understand (that is it wont get thrown out by emotions etc)

When people are like that and you begin to "help" them they can feel its you that tries to drag them or make them lissen to something that could change you where the brain could consider this a "virus" trying to take over, and the brain acknowleg this and tries to resist? (where mind controll is awfull where it allready set this virus before yourself even knew it was there corrupting your mind/judgement?)
