Bullied Arizona Teen Leaves Suicide Letter On Twitter

A high school student who spoke out against bullying decided to take his own life.

He even posted a suicide letter online. In it, he talked about being bullied. Now, his family and friends say they are determined to pick up where he left off.

“My son, he didn’t deserve this …” said Jacqueline Vigil.

She is saying goodbye to her 17-year-old son, Carlos.

She said he was involved in Youth and Government and tried to push for stronger anti-bullying laws, but his own experience with bullying became too much.

“He is not here because of bullying,” Jacqueline said. “It drove him over the edge.”

Carlos posted a note on Twitter on Saturday afternoon, referring to the mean names bullies called him and saying he’s free now.

Carlos’ dad rushed home when he heard about it, but it was too late.

Carlos was going to be a senior at Valley High — a school he transferred to last year to escape bullying at Los Lunas High School.

He was picked on for everything from his weight and acne to his glasses.

According to his mother, Carlos had been a victim of cruel kids for a long time.

“He had this lunchbox, a smiley face lunchbox, and people thought it was the funniest lunchbox ever, and they made fun of him for it,” Jacqueline said. “They grabbed it on the school bus and just threw it on the floor and broke it. It’s just little things like that.”

Parents, make sure you’re teaching your children not to be little a$$holes at school.
