NC: another precious life lost to bullying – 10-year-old girl hangs herself
Why…how far have we fallen as a society when we have parents raising children so cruel towards one another that we are seeing horrors like this – a 10 year old child who felt that there was no way out. At TEN. This happened in Columbus County, NC. (WRAL):
Samantha West said she found her daughter, Jasmine McClain, dead in her bedroom Monday night.
“I just lost it because she took her last breath in my arms,” West said Wednesday. “She was a loving child. I just don’t understand.”
Chadbourn Police Chief Steven Shaw said her death was obviously suicide, and he was about to close the case when he started checking posts on Facebook and other social media about Jasmine and her death.
“Children started coming forward and making accusations that she was bullied – and bullied bad – in school,” Shaw said.
Jasmine was picked on at Chadbourne Elementary School, West said, noting other children teased her about her clothes or her shoes. She left the school for a while and dreaded having to return about a month ago, her mother said.
