Default 13 year old Izabel Laxamana



Quote:
A teenager who took her own life after video of her father cutting her hair wound up on YouTube may have done so over her own shame about what she did to receive her haircut punishment according to authorities.
Izabel Laxamana, 13, jumped off an overpass in Tacoma, Washington on May 29 because she was reportedly embarrassed over the actions that led her father to be angry with her at the time.
Police believe that the young girl sent suggestive photos to a boy on social media, and was worried her decision would haunt her forever.

According to Fox 13, the girl wrote multiple notes before her death, and in one told her father how much she loved him and that he was not to blame for her death.
She was also apparently being bullied at school.
'I think it just pushed her too far to where she wanted to do what she did,' said one of Izabelís friends.
'She just felt like she couldnít take it anymore,' said another friend.
'There were a lot of things going on in her life.'

Police say Laxamana was riding in a car on 48th Street that afternoon when she suddenly bolted out of the vehicle and jumped off an overpass onto I-5 - striking Frutos' car with such force that both the front and back windows shattered.
Just days before her death, a video of Laxamana was posted online, showing her dad shaming her for 'getting messed up' by cutting off her long hair.
Laxamana's father did not upload the video however (which has since been taken down) and never meant for it to be published.
Instead, it was apparently uploaded by a third party who had been sent the video and 'thought they were being of help' sharing it more widely.

It's too bad feminists are too busy with "transphobia" against a multi-millionaire to speak on this.

Kids today aren't very resilient at all!

And her dad didn't upload the clip...her friend did....it was supposed to be a private punishment...

When I was 14,my dad beat the crap out of me with a CAIN in front of my friends.....for smoking pot..and bunking school .but did it deter me? NO SIR

It may be so but keep in mind there are brain disorders that can affect what chemicals in ur brain are produced. Perhaps she had a mental illness that disallowed her from coping with everyday pains.

Because the prospects of having a job, a house, a family, a nice car, and parties with her friends for years to come were too boring for her.

You want my url? What?


You strike me as a sissy. Natural selection my friend. Survival of the fittest.


I have no sympathy for people, especially young kids with their entire future ahead of them who attempt to, or actually kill themselves.

Try rationalizing suicide to poor ass Mexicans crossing the border in the hot desert sun just to make a better life for themselves.

I agree. I guess part of that is social media..everyone sees and knows your business. My father would beat the crap out of me and I'm grateful he did. I love and respect him for disciplining me when he had to. He was not abusive, he was doing it out of love. It made me a better person. You don't do things to shame yourself and your parents..maybe I'm a weirdo for thinking that way.
I grew up poor. I didn't have nice clothes, I actually had holes on the knees of my pants, my mother would iron on patches to cover the holes. I felt embarrassed in school, but hey I didn't let it get to me. You have to be strong mentally. I feel bad for this girl.

lol sadly you're only saying what a lot of people are thinking

she was making posts online about feeling isolated at school .. so I think she was going down that road already .. but that video getting out obviously didn't help

nope .. nothing wrong with that .. everything's been turned into some mush of pssy now .. can't touch your kid .. can't do this can't do that .. don't offend anyone .. soon they'll be encouraging everyone to wear skirts .. your father probably made you a stronger person .. but these days kids are so coddled that a lot of them can't cope with anything
