In April 2009, 11-year-old Massachusetts boy, Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover, hanged himself after enduring bullying at school, including daily taunts of being gay, despite his mother’s weekly pleas to the school to address the problem.  Four months into the year and this is at least the fourth publicized suicide of a middle-school aged child linked to bullying thus far.

    Byron Hurt is an incredible human being. Now that that’s out of the way, what happened at that school that could lead an 11 year old child to commit suicide? What were some of the taunts? This is probably one of the saddest things I’ve ever heard and believe me, growing up in the projects in Newark, I’ve seen and heard some sad things…But this takes the cake.

  2. Great show everyone! The more conversations like this, both public and private, the better!
