Pushed too far. Half a million people have now seen a video posted by a 15 year old girl just days before her body was found inside her home. Amanda Todd committed suicide after years of bullying, but before she did she wanted her story told.
In a black and white video, Amanda Todd never speaks a word; she lets cue cards tell the story. In 7th grade, Amanda said she started doing web cam with friends. After a year of being showered with compliments, Amanda made a decision she would regret for the rest of her short life, she went topless on camera.
That image was saved by a boy she didn't know. Then during Christmas break, it was used against her. Amanda said she lost all her friends and got in to drugs. She claimed she moved schools twice, but couldn't get away from her tormenter.
Months passed, and Amanda started talking with a boy, but he had a girlfriend. Amanda made her next mistake by going to his house while the girlfriend was out of town.
Amanda said that girlfriend found out, and attacked her. Amanda rushed home and tried to drink bleach to commit suicide. All the while, she said she was still being tormented. She said people wished for her to die.
After what Amanda calls a severe depression, the bullying became too much. On Wednesday, police found Amanda Todd’s body in her Vancouver home Wednesday. She had committed suicide.
Because of this video, the head of British Columbia has put out a stern warning against bullying.
