Pathology

In brief: It happens

As a pathologist, the emotional autopsy following a homicide or suicide is part of our work.
Bullying is deplorable and the fact that we ignored it for centuries or considered it "part of building character" is equally deplorable. Despite all the attention it is rightly getting, i believe that more child / teen suicides result from emotional or physical abuse by parents than by peers.
