Mitchell Wilson (joke in desc.)
Been away from the internet for a while
and when I come back, everyone us
going ape shit over this amanda todd for
killing herself after being targeted from
At first I' m like, that' s actually sad, a
tragedy that someone would be so
desperate to take their own life bacause
of the way they are treated...
But then I saw her story and now it
changed my view of her.
This is Mitchell Wilson. By his 1 tth
birthday, Mitchell Wilson had already
endured a lifetime of pain. He was 8
when his mother died of cancer three
years ago. The next year he was
diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, a
degenerative and incurable disease that
was slowly destroying his muscles and
would one day leave him paralyzed.
And last November, while on one of his
prescribed daily walks, Mitchell was
lumped by a boy he knew
from his elementary school in Pickering.
The older child, who was after the
iphone Mitchell borrowed from his
father to listen to music while he walked,
smashed Mitchell' s face into the
pavement so hard he broke some of the
boy' s teeth. The attack, Mitchell' s
parents say, led their son on a
downward spiral which culminated in his
suicide earlier that month. "He was
never the same after the mugging,” said
Mitchell' s father, Craig Wilson, who
found his son' s lifeless body on Sept. 6
a plastic bag tied around the young
boy' s head - when he went to wake him
up for what would have been his first
day of Grade 6. “Ultimately it shattered
his We." The alleged mugger was
arrested the day after the attack,
charged with assault and removed from
Woodcreek Public School. But the older
boy' s friends remained, and they blamed
Mitchell for getting their friend in
trouble - following him home from
school and taunting him about his slow
and laboured gait.
He ultimately took his life so he didn' t
have part in the bully' s conviction.
Not once did I see a Mitchell wilson
post reach front page and all that is
on front page is that girl. Listen,
bullying is wrong and its
psycological traumas its leaves can
be devistating, but amanda kind of
did it to herself, soming like an the
ulitmate attention whore in my
opinion. Mitchell was an 1 1 boy with
was partially disabled and was
bullied because of it. Not for flailing
around his tits and being regretful
about it after.
Where is his recognition?
