Teacher “Dared Suicide Schoolboy To Kill Himself”


The latest school suicide scandal to rock Japan has taken on an outrageous new dimension as it is alleged a teacher told a suicidal schoolboy who went on to kill himself later in the day in response to bullying by his peers that he “didn’t have the guts to do it” and that he “should do it if he really could.”

That the 13-year-old Nagoya schoolboy hurled himself off the 11-storey building where he lived in final effort to escape what is believed to have been relentless school bullying is unfortunately no longer surprising, though witness testimony about the conduct of his classmates and – in particular – his teacher has shocked many.

According to these accounts, “A-kun started chanted ‘die, die, die!’ at him and then B-chan started it as well. When he said ‘I’ll kill myself’ his homeroom teacher just told him ‘just try it if you have the guts.'”

These exchanges apparently persisted until mere hours before his death: “Sometimes people would tell him to ‘die’ and he would just be like ‘well, I’ll die then.’ The teacher said ‘there’s no way you can do it’ and that was about 3PM the day he did it…”

His teacher maintains none of these exchanges ever took place and she never even spoke to the boy on the day of his death:

“I heard no such conversation on the day of his death, and I did not speak to him directly at all that day and did not brush him off in any conversation.”

She also maintains he never sought help from her (as he claimed in his suicide note), and that she was unaware of any bullying at all in her class in the first place.

For once the school board did at least concede some bullying may have taken place, noting in its press conference that “from his note alleging multiple unspecified individuals told him to ‘die’ we cannot doubt some sort of bullying may have been a factor” and pledging to investigate further.

A classmate describes him as having been “A cheerful and kind boy… we were supposed to return home together as usual but oddly he said it was ‘impossible’ that day. That was the last time. Maybe if I had pushed him to come we could have talked it over and avoided it…” – although under the circumstances it is easy to imagine he finds himself with many more friends in death than he ever had in life.

With suicide the leading cause of death for young Japanese and bullying endemic in Japanese schools nobody seems that surprised by his suicide, although the alleged behaviour of his teacher is another matter:

“Yet another villainous teacher!”

“Japan, where even the teachers push kids into suicide. Wouldn’t this be a criminal offence of promoting suicide if a non-teacher did it?”

“6 months to 7 years for the crime of instigating suicide, which includes acts instilling in someone the final determination to commit suicide.”

“If it is true the teacher was pretty much directly responsible for pulling the trigger.”

“What did this kid think would happen when he tattled to the teacher about their bullying? That she’d actually care or intervene?”

“The teacher is supposed to have been his one ally against them… instead she dared him to kill himself. No wonder he lost all hope…”

“I cannot believe anyone would think it appropriate to respond to that kind of threat like this!”

“Her attitude doesn’t seem to differ from her pupils.”

“Now it’s her turn to show us her guts!”

“Typical teacher banter isn’t though? Return like for like, but this time someone took things seriously.”

“Honestly I doubt she meant this to happen. Had she intended any malice she would have arranged things a little better.”

“Some people always maintain that the ones who say they’ll do it rather than just doing it aren’t serious, but I don’t think calling a depressed child out on the basis of this is really sensible…”

“She was also claiming there was no bullying in her class though.”

“She also says she didn’t ‘directly’ address him, which makes me wonder.”

“I can’t believe she’ll worm her way out of this!”

“Pretty sure she can’t get away with this one. Too many witnesses are coming out…”

“What’s going to happen to all those kids who told the media what happened…”

“What about the kids who were actually doing the bullying here?”

    Japan has already been in spotlight for faking statistics to an incredible degree. Specifically rape and child molestation. It's estimated that their rape per capita greatly exceeds that of US among First World countries if they were recorded on paper more.

    Whenever something bad or shameful happens, they rather sweep it under the carpet and ignore it. I'd accept general physical beatdown or being shot rather than prolonged suffering and torment from sick twisted little bastards.

    Man I've heard some real sick shit that happens in Japanese schools from a friend who lived there for 20 years. From disembowling a students puppy and leaving it at the victims doorstep to using razorblades to cut their victim and say the victim was "self harming"....Japan does some awesome stuff, but get your shit together about bullying.

    In a way, it is. An eye for an eye would make the whole world go blind, but if suicidals start running around murdering people to the point of an epidemic, maybe those fuckers at NPA and Board of Education will finally be forced to take this bullying issue seriously. You know , because other people's lives start to be at stake. If all perpetrators escape unharmed and without consequences, how do you expect this problem to go away?

    Japanese government should stop trying to ignore this, especially since they dont have that luxury anymore. You think Japan's shortage of young people is exclusively because the newer generations are reluctant to get married? I'd love to meet the stats compilers because they may have been forced to juke those and hides the real problems by the politicians.

    I agree. Those who are driven to kill themselves by their peers/protectors should also die, for they are the direct cause of said death and murderers themselves.

    Sadly, when put into practice we get instances such as Columbine (not Columbine itself, keep in mind), where the victim is just as likely to think, 'Whelp, fuck-it' and just go off randomly (or just have very poor aim and hit the bystanders rather than the intended targets), causing even more tragedy.

    But...yes. Bullies should die. They think it's funny to torture another human soul? Let's see the hyenas laugh-off being sodomized by a shotgun before their victim pulls the trigger.

    Saying "Bullies should die" gets a little harder to say when you've experienced being a bully yourself. It's loads of fun, and it's not out of jealousy either...It's pure simple, horrible fun. It's fun to pick on the weak and the different--more so if you're part of a group. You feel a little more alive and you feel a sense of camaraderie with your fellow aggressors. Also, sometimes you just can't help yourself...some people are more fun than the others, or more irritating and therefore better targets, and telling bullies to stop is the same as telling a kid to stop playing games.

    Coming from someone who has on both sides of the issue: the best way to deal with a bully is simply to grow some fangs and treat them as equals. Bullies never bully people they see as their equal. Bullies bully because people give them the power to do so by being weak and non-confrontational. Screw what the teachers say, if someone picks on you and threatens to take your stuff, a few bruises on your person is preferable to a year of misery. If they hit you hit back--you might lose, but make sure they know what it means to hurt you. People worry more about the pain they get than the pain they inflict.

    "Bullies should die. They think it's funny to torture another human soul? Let's see the hyenas laugh-off being sodomized by a shotgun before their victim pulls the trigger."

    This statement is bullying itself. Wishing someone die because someone else considers interaction with them to be some form of psychological torture based on a subjective assessment is truly absurd.

    Japan's suicide rates are not a problem. Problem is that people want it easy, want to have toys and not children and want few children, while aborting and contracepting the rest away. The same fate awaits Western Europe.

    I did think about it. Trust me when i say that my initial reaction was disgust towards myself.

    However the powers that be in the government, the politicians, they dont give a fuck if it does not hurt their career. They take advantage of japan's culture of social caste and bending over to the authority despite supposedly being democratically elected to serve the people. Nothing will move them from their seats until something truly terrible happens. Just look at Tepco's history if you need proof. Hell, even Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    1000 deaths is tragic for us. These unnecessary deaths though are statistics to the bureaucrats and like a demented scorecard system, they will be the only kind of force those fuckers cant ignore.

    That is just the kind of world we live in. Shoot not the messenger.

    Before dying, get some evidence of them bullying said person and put it in your will via some online host

    Give them an URL of said evidence and the people will have no way to "stand back" and held responsible

    though of course no one in that state of mind would do it... but just incase

    For me, I would write a suicide note, writing a list of what the bully did to me and how the school poorly handles it, and then kill myself. I don't want to have my family suffer from my reckless talent to kill someone.

    he probably compared an assault with a dagger on someone in the street's of america-richest (a place to attract attention and media) with a military action somewhere in iraki (i heard these things happen from time to time in war-countries, civilian's getting shot).

    and i allmost "missed" the by. gunned down by a kid -> 10-50 people gunned down a kid.

    i dont know what "bats an eye" mean ... must be something very americanish. i heard that writing mistakes are automatically corrected by the mind.

    i guess i wouldnt have written the comment if i had not missread the "10-50 people gunned down BY a kid".

    You mean the same japs that got bitch fucked and gangraped in the last war?

    If you studied history you should know that Americans lost 1.1 man for every german dead on western/african front, while being helped by brits and russians and other allies, AND committing 60% of their resources there. We lost one man in pacific for every 8-10 japs dead. This is done while we only devoted 40% of our resources, paying our workers (instead of taking and pillaging or using slave labor as japs did), while we were assaulting fortified defensive positions, and while they had the best planes, ships, and modern navy prior to 1943 (and we still won guadacanal and midway even though we were outnumbered in terms of fighting soldiers, ships, and out teched in planes).

    The only one scared shitless against the world are japs. The only reason they are banned military build up is because they will upset the balance of the region, and will ultimately be fucked to pieces by other nations and Americans in which case America will either annex the worthless island or lose the island as a base of operations. Doing so will result in the genocide of japs, which America will not do until they get uppity again.

    It's for your own good that japs are without military. It will be fucking worthless like last time anyway.
