    Re-edited op, seems like no inquiry has been made into her death thus far.

    Remember reading about her death in the Manchester Evening News a bit ago, but I agree with phobie, it was no ones fault really, they should chill out.

    I think its such an over reaction. Sounds like parents trying to make news or something, I know there kid died, but theres something very weird about this story.

    Her date probably bailed and she died of a broken heart. Too bad this guy wasn't around to save her.

    until you know what it's like to lose a child you have no right judging them on their reaction. also women are supposed to be the sesitive ones ....you secretly have a penis dontcha? ;)

    Secretly?

    Also, this is pretty horrendous. Not a nice way to remember your daughter.

    I can see why they would be pissed at first, but to remain so angry after finding out it was an automated thing is stupid. I hope their kid dies.


    Oh wait lol.

    Grief is one thing... and I'd be pretty grief stricken too probably, another reminder that my child is dead.

    But rationality MUST win over and allow it to be seen that it was an honest mistake.


    Yeah... exactly.

    Except for the last two lines. lol. bad krynn!

    people in the process of grieving are seldom rational

    Okay, that's true. But doing what they're doing doesn't accomplish anything productive. And that's basically what I was trying to say.

    That'll teach the bitch to keep the kid out of school for that long. QUIT BURYING HER WITH YOUR PROTECTION. LET HER LIVE HER LIFE HOW SHE WANTS!

    This is quite frankly disgusting. It's no wonder self-esteem is at an all time low among male students when girls such as this who are entirely capable of putting out are refused admittance to school formals. If my son remains a self-loathing virgin beyond high school, I know who I'll be holding accountable.

    I understand the parents being upset for getting that letter. But why in the world would they run to the media with this? And the "bring a skeleton to school" comment seems really out of place for someone that just lost their kid.

    But think of the venereal diseases! Much better if his first sexual experience is with a safe, sterile, dry, hollowed-out corp...

    Yeah okay I started this joke and I'm ending it.
