Destiny Gleason, a 14-year-old girl, hanged herself in her bedroom in Warrenton, Missouri, on April 20, 2016. The teen’s parents claim she was bullied at Black Hawk Middle School in the months leading up to her death.
The teen’s family moved to Warrenton last summer, and when she entered Black Hawk Middle School, the bullying began, Destiny’s parents said. Destiny’s mother, Stephanie Clark said this comment about Destiny’s bullies:
‘At one point they took some photo of some random person`s private parts and put Destiny`s name across it and spread it around the school,’ ‘Anything they could possibly do to hurt her and bring her down.’
She also added:
‘She just wanted everybody to like her, that`s all she wanted,’
They say the school was aware of the bullying but took little action. Destiny was involved in a fight at school on April 19, 2016 that ended with her being taken away in handcuffs and charged with assault. After the fight, Destiny found what her mom says were ‘mean’ Facebook posts about herself, and shortly thereafter, she committed suicide.
A friend of Destiny’s family has set up a GoFundMe account in hopes of raising money to pay for funeral expenses. You can go to the GoFundMe account by clicking the link right here.
If you know anyone who is being bullied, please, speak up, stand up, and come to their aid. Also, please help to spread awareness of bullying, and help end it.
And if schools know about those who are being bullied, and do nothing about it at all or take little action, there has to be consequences for these schools such as legal action, being sued, etc.
May God bless and get justice for this family, and may Destiny rest in peace.
