Connecticut teen kills himself after friends say he was bullied

A Connecticut teenager took his own life last week after his first day of school and it now appears he was suffering from years of bullying.

According to friends of 15-year-old Bart Palosz, the polish immigrant, was teased because he was 6-foot-3 and had a polish accent, but his internal struggles only came to light after his death.

CNN's Rosa Flores has the story.

    He must have been a kid that was raised here, because a true immigrant would never stand to bullying.
    Myself if someone would have bully me, I will just simply kick their ass, and if they are bigger and taller or stronger...well that's what a wooden stick is for; one hit on their legs...and bam...they are the same height.

    Seriously, why would most American kids decide to do stupid stuff like killing or kill themselves for stupid actions like bullying...it must have been that their parents did not showed/teach them how to stand for themselves.
    Its not about being racist, but why is it that you never see or hear about a black kid that bullied and all of the sudden killed himself..? or about a Hispanic? Because simply we won't stand someone bullying us.
