Bullied teen taken off of Life Support, passes away, after suicide attempt.
Jadin Bell, a gay teenager from Oregon, climbed a playground structure at Central Elementary School in La Grande and hanged himself after relentless bullying. A passer by stopped and tried to save him but he was taken off of life support this past weekend after doctors detected little brain activity. Jadin has since passed away.
Nine days ago, Bell, a 15-year-old high school sophomore, went to the Central Elementary School playground in La Grande, Ore., where he hanged himself. A passerby attempted to rescue him, and he was taken to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland for care. He was put on life support, according to KATU News.
A family friend told KATU that Bell asked his parents to home school him because the bullying online and in school became so intense. Bell was also reluctant to report the bullies to school administrators. Eventually, authorities learned of his tormentors and had started to investigate his case when he went to hang himself.
Look at that innocent face. How could people be so mean? Words can not even express the thoughts that go to himself and his family…
I will say, as i have said many and many times before. The blood of all these CHILDREN that take their own lives, is on the hands of the SCUMBAGS Tony Perkins, Brian Brown, Maggie Gallagher and the rest of their ilk who promote discrimination and HATE.
