Silence the Violence: 12 Year Old Boy Commits Suicide Because of Bullying

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Jesus Take The Wheel, News, Stop the Violence


Sadly, a 12-year-old boy from Alabama took his life on Tuesday after having enough of being bullied by his peers.

Trey was known to the community as a good boy who liked to hug and always thought hugs would make everything better.  The young boy was being pressured to join the neighborhood gang and was bullied constantly by kids in the community.

The kids would take his lunch money, jump on him and threaten him severely.  The boy’s family says that he had been facing the bullies for a year and Tuesday proved to be too much for the boy.  His father says Trey informed him Monday that the children were still messing with him and the father says it must have gotten worse because Trey took his own life to stop the bullying.

No leads have been made on the death but it is under investigation. SMH

    @lovelyK … r u freaking kidding me “no one the blame” do u live on mars? Blame is everywhere on this one. From the school system, the neighborhood, society as a whole, and most importantly we, black people”. We got to do better or we are truly doomed.

    As a parent, if your kid says they are getting bullied then its YOUR JOB to go up there and let the little bad@ss kids know that they best leave your seed alone. I give a d@mn if its against the rules or NOT. Ima tell the KID wassup and tell em they can tell their mamma and she can come see me too.

    WOW what a handsome little guy. Poor baby. And @ person calling out his father, a lot of kids don’t tell their parents about being bullied.

    May God keep his family in peace. This is sad ya’ll for real.

  • always knew

    I’m tired of reading about this same ish happening to blk kids, everyday…

    Where are the parents? Why don’t they take interest in their kids and stop it BEFORE it escalated further out of hand… Like before, their kids are dead…

    Final thought: If their own parents aren’t going to look out, for them.. What can be done to stop this??

    I personally, think it’s sick, that in order to drive a car, you must have a driver’s license..But to have a child, nothing is required….People are no even tested to see, if they shouldn’t be able to parent a child, no psych testing, no commitment to the child… SMMH :(

    So sad. No 12 years-old should commit suicide. iIwish he has found peace at last…
