Bullying

10-year-old Jasmine McClain hangs herself after being bullied

The issue of bullying was brought into sharp focus again on Monday night when a 10-year-old girl was found dead in her bedroom. Jasmine McClain had hanged herself after allegedly being taunted at school.

The North Carolina girl was found dead by her mother. It has since emerged that she had been bullied and that she had been keen to avoid going to school for this reason. She may also have been bullied online.

The girl was reportedly picked on at school for her clothing and her shoes. The bullying is said to have come to light after friends posted comments online when they heard about her suicide.
