Another Teen Suicide Due To Bullying

In Washington state, a state on the edge of becoming the 7th U.S. state to legalize same sex marriage, another young teen has taken his life due to anti-gay bullying. 14 year old Rafael Morelos hanged himself after intense bullying and online attacks.


“He pretended everything was OK,” she said. “Sometimes he acted strong, but inside, he was dying, little by little.”

Rob Cline, principal at Cashmere Middle School, where Morelos was enrolled, said school officials had taken “appropriate action” earlier in the year when Morelos was bullied, but declined to say what action the district took to combat antigay attacks.

“Student discipline is not something I am at liberty to share,” Cline said.
