  1. why put this picture in newspaper? no respect for this boys parents and other family members.who edit this paper? shame on you.

  2. I’m terribly disturbed by the photograph used to accompany this story. A 13 year old committing suicide is harrowing enough, why must we complicate things by publishing the photo? As a journalist who teaches ethics, I know this is wrong. Where is the editor?

    Must we be this graphic to tell the story? Must we be this irresponsible? Come on, as media we certainly can do better

  3. Technology has improved tremendously over the years, comfort to your hand reach but the children watching too much revengeful movies etc., so they have plenty spare time to study nonsense. Most children have phones and spent most of their time listening to all sort of music through earphones stuck in their ears because they don’t want their parent to hear the kind of music they are listening.
