Another innocent life fallen to hate, prejuide, and bigotry. When will this madness ever end?
After years of being bullied Jacob Rogers at senior at Cheatham County Central High School could stand it no longer.
He started coming home his senior year saying I don’t want to go back. Everyone is so mean. They call me a faggot, they call me gay, a queer,‘” friend Kaelynn Mooningham said.
Even aftre dropping out of school to get away from the torment of other students the bullying continued. On Wedensday Jacob could take it no longer and committed suicide.
Jacob lived with his grandmother who primarily took care of him. And before he left us Jacob made sure to leave notes left for her. In those notes Jacob left passwords to his email and his phone so that they could see the messages of hate that he endured so investigators could look into why he chose to kill himself.
And in the end the story gets even sadder.
Jacobs grandmother doesn’t have enough money to hold a proper funeral for this poor lost child
