Obviously those closest to him will remember but none of those people are here, are they? So obviously that comment does not relate to them but the public in general.

What makes you think I don't know anything about human psychology? I know a lot.

Since you're mad, I'm going to assume i hit a cord and that I am right. So let me ask you, what does continuing to grieve for a person you've never known, talked to or even met do for you?

Yes, i feel nothing at all. This happens 100,000 a day. Children fight wars. People starve to death. Pregnant mothers get killed. People get killed in the most horrible ways all day every day somewhere on earth. Deal with it. It happens.

And, I find it a bit disturbing that either 1)the parents didn't realize it, or 2)that whatever was going on, the kid felt like it was such a big deal he couldn't tell someone close to him to get the help he clearly needed.


Parents just aren't meant to bury their kids. I'm not a dad yet, but I went to my friend's funeral who died in a car crash at age 13 . The parents were absolutely hysterical, and when the dad walked up to give a eulogy, he couldn't even form coherent words he was sobbing so hard. It was the saddest thing in the world, and now these parents have to undergo the same exact thing.
And it seems from how personal you got in your responses that you're drawing from that experience.....which would prove my point.

It blows my mind that a kid could get this worked up over a video game. Then again, I think about kids these days, and think, well, maybe it isn't that crazy.

Why is that?

From age 5 i was taught death. I was taught that death is a part of living. It comes to everyone eventually. It could be tomorrow, it could be in 90 yrs but it still comes. I've been taught that at some point i will see everyone I've ever love or loved, dead. I dont' fear death because I've come to terms with its' inevitability.

I would feel sorry for someone who had death forced on them by someone elses actions but definitely not by someone who took their own life.


I guess being a black male and knowing the sheer amount of black people killed in the slave trade ( estimated at 100 million ) and killed in beatings and lynchings by people, being experimented on by the government ( Tuskeegee, giving some 400 black men syphillus and watching them die slowly ) and random racists all around this nation who got pleasure in killing men, women and children and tearing families apart makes me less empathetic for poor little "Billy" who killed himself because he couldn't have his Wii.

LoL, ok man. It always amuses me too see how passionate people are about people they don't even know.

Now obviously I'd never be this open around the family or friends but jesus christ, you're not one of them!

Well, I guess we get a 'moral' feeling such as, "oh, that's quite sad". But nevertheless, you'll brush it off or forget it... So there's no point of arguing...
