    The parents of a 12-year-old Mississippi boy say he killed himself last week after being subjected to intense bullying. Andrew Leach of Southaven, Mississippi, was found dead at his family’s home March 6. Leach’s parents believe the sixth-grader had been struggling to come to terms with his sexuality, and killed himself after being bullied by fellow students at Southaven Middle School. “He finally came out with the information at school that he thought he may be bisexual,” Matt Leach told WREG. “I think that really amped up the bullying.” Leach said Southaven Middle School students had threatened his son with...

    Congratulations my dear liberal friends. You have nimbly, skillfully, artfully, and cleverly stymied the most menacing, pernicious, and malignant threat to freedom to inhabit the Internet since Al Gore invented it. Yes, friends, you have stopped a conservative powerhouse in his tracks, causing him to cravenly retreat to his sanctum to lick his wounds.  So complete is your victory that the quick-witted Republican you have slain issued a statement on Facebook: After much thought and consideration, I've decided to take a break from politics and political commentary. I had a horribly rough night on Twitter after a woman not only...

This is only about 10,000 people. Every two hours, this amount of children are killed because of abortion.” Lia became...

When the deputies exited their vehicles, the car lurched forward and backward into the two cars, then drove toward Hillsgrove, Polk County Sheriff's spokeswoman Michal Shanley said. "He, fearing for his life, fired several shots at the oncoming vehicle and managed to...

    third of 12-year-old boys in the Gaza strip want to become martyrs for the Palestinian cause. Are they victims of Israeli oppression or their own side's propaganda? Ed O'Loughlin reports. A Friday afternoon in Gaza City and a Palestinian militant group is staging a passing-out parade for its newest graduates. On a dirt soccer pitch, 24 masked recruits of the Popular Resistance Committee go through a program of song, march and very ragged foot drill. Some clutch real rifles, others wooden cut-outs. The crowd of onlookers is appreciative, but smaller than it might have been. There are wanted men...

    Sept. 9— Who really failed Joseph Daniel Scruggs? Daniel was only 12 years old when he hanged himself in the closet of his bedroom on Jan. 2, 2002. By all accounts, he was troubled. Weighing only 63 pounds, he was bullied mercilessly at school. His small size, tendency to dress in shabby clothes, poor hygiene and strong body odor made him easy prey for ridicule by his classmates at Washington Middle School in Meriden, Conn. The bullying was so severe that Daniel feared going to school and was absent 44 days in the months before his death. And when he...

    Mitchell's father 83, described himself as a voyeur and author of two volumes about his personal theology that include explicit sexual content, acknowledged showing his son pictures of gentalia at the age of seven or eight.

A few weeks in juvenille detension, bouts with alcohol and drugs--including an LSD trip that put him in the hospital--were other contributing factors, the elder Mitchell said. He added that he suspected that Mitchell was abused in daycare. Calling himself 'too implusive as...
