Please out of respect for the family refrain from gossiping on this subject. This is a hard enough time without having to read people posting things that aren't completely true.

I would like to know why some people think that the teachers aren't responable for our children when they are in school. I can tell you about GHS, It has to many of the same family members in the school and that is another thing that is wrong at GHS. Their children get to play the sports are the teachers friends get to play the sports and if you talk to a teacher/coach they just tell you what they think you want to hear and the children doesn't even get a chance. If you want even practice the one that is so called got the name how can they learn to play and that is a type of bullying from a teacher/coach. The child gone home crying his /her heart out wanting to know they have done and the parents don't know what to tell the children. There is a teenage boy having to be home schooled because he is afraid that he will get into trouble and be kicked out because he took up for himself and had to go to court over this matter. It was another boy running his mouth unti this other boy couldn't and he snapped and there was a fight. It was the one that was running his mouth own ,own & own and that boy took care of it himself. There was students that knows this to be a fact but said no need to tell anyone because they want believe you.That is bulling and yes that is Hppening at Good Old G . H. S. I have heard that some parents are afraid to send their children to school Monday because of what might happen.I pray for this family that has lost a child and I pray for G.H.S. that they can get some teachers and coaches in there that doesn't know the children , then maybe it can get better, if not I just fear what the future holds for the children at G.H.S in years to come. All I want if the well being for our children. R.I.P Phillip and whatever caused you to do this awful they will have to stand in front of God one day. Everyone have a good night and go ahesd and play your sports and not even respect that a student had commited a terrible crime. Go ahead like nothing happened because that is usually how it always is. God be with this world.

Yes what happened to this young man is very sad, my thoughts and prays and are with the family and friends. But that is not right and is also bullying is people that are pointing fingers at kids casuse they are they cause of it when not one really nows anything. So of the students dont want to go to school cause they are afaird other students are going to say they are they ones that cause him to do that, then all they are doing is bullying them. So we just need 2 have our parys with the family. and help they can get though this,

I agree, pointing fingers will not solve the problem but divide a town. Now is the time to educate the kids, parents and faculty. We need to come together to solve this problem. I just want our kids to be able and get the education without being treated different because of their last name, their weight, their social status, athletic ability. We, as parents, need to start at home teaching our kids to be respectful of others. If you don't like someone fine, but don't chastise or criticize them. Don't be a bully, simple as that. Think before you speak, life is short.

Your post makes no sense whatso ever. Besides that you clearly don't understand what bullying means.

I say teach your kid how to defend him or herself and if someone picks or bullies them, then a good old case of country ass whooping is in place.People used to get black eyes before this terrorist junk started.It is sad what happened to this young man. someone older, upper classman or STAFF should have done something.You can't tell me a school this small,staff didn't know what was going on. YEAH RIGHT.I agree, too many family and friends working there. Thin em out and hire true professionals. GHS is a JOKE to our County.

Judging from the great number of spelling and grammatical errors in your jealous criticism of GHS, it looks as if you may have skipped school A LOT!!!! lol

i dont think that just bullying was to blame. the kid left no note that i've heard of,so if he didnt say this was the reason i did this their just guessing or trying to take the spotlight off of something else, and his home life wasn't all peaches and cream. i sure he was being bullied, but so was i and i never wanted to hurt myself. i just wanted to hurt them. the boy had a mental problem and if his parents were so concerned about what was going on why didnt they take him out of school..? i think that was alot more going on at home in this young mans life. i think that the attention he was getting at school although negative, was better than no attention at all. i feel bad for the boy, i do thiank that the school could of done a better job if he was being hounded evey day. it's gotta be hard to keep up with what every kid is doing all the time. and i think if the kid had some kinda guidance at home his dad woulda told him even though you might get a whooping nock the crap out of'em and they'll leave you alone. i just hope something positive comes out of this.

I do not know this child or his family as I am not from Gordonsville. But my heart is with the family and the community. My prayers go out to everyone involved. It is not believable to blame this on any one sect of people. Why do the teachers of the school get blame when they are only with the child 7 hours and outta of that 7 hours only maybe a total of 1 hour is not structured. Quit trying to make someone else the scape goat and try collectively to see that this never happens again. The faculty, staff, administration, students(bullies), and the PARENTS need to work to together instead of work so hard to place blame. As a functional society we should be praying for and showing concern to everyone involved instead of using harsh words, assumptions, and accusations.

And for your info my daughter has been a friend for a long long time of his.So get your facts straight.

You were ONLY asked to be back there because of Amanda, not because you belonged there. And no said you were on TV tell your Dad or help him read. And oh my god yes you called him names for YEARS! Horriblenames and Elizabeth too! Look my point was only that all of you may have been freinds with him in the last year or two, but you know the truth. You said she had no friends because he was gay, and you said it for all of our years. You even told me not to freinds with them because they were gross. So lie to yourself, but stop acting like no one exsisted in his life except you. I was there all of these years i saw what all of you did. I'm not a parent or a smart ass, speaking of bullies, you should'nt call kids names and insist no metions them. I'm student with all of these kids and have been since kindergarten. Heather Hunt has been in alternitive school for a year and a half for drugs, sorry heather but Phillip HATED DRUGS!! She wasn't even in school with him. Oh and sir speaking of bullies I'm not removing my post even if you threaten me all day. I didn't add my name because this is about Phillip not your daughter.

Yea nice and classy jazzys daddy, looks like your kid learned it at home. PS I was standing behind Heather when her and her friend were taking about being on the news, it had nothing to do with Phillip. And yea I didnt just start school with all of you today... just sayin' nobody is fooling anybody.
