HomeCrimeLet Us Profit Off The Tragic Death Of A Nine-Year-Old School Boy! Jacqueline Heinemann February 25, 2013 Crime, Education, Race, Society 3 Comments This is going to sound slightly cold and calloused, but I suspect that the World Wide media Olympics made mum’s version a gospel in order to sell a story. According to Aaron Dugmore’s mother, racial tension and harassment at school caused her little boy to hang himself. Most of the online news in regard to this unfortunate death appears to be sloppy and done in haste. For example, Kelly Dugmore (Aaron’s mother) was cited as age 22 according to one source, in another she is 30, and as is the beauty of the Internet, the sites have settled on 30. Aside from the age discrepancies, there are no solid, concrete statements or evidence to realistically proclaim this suicide was indeed due to racial tensions or hatred. The press seemed to monopolize on a few statements the mother made: “He was even threatened with a plastic knife by one boy. When Aaron stuck up for himself he said it’d be a real one next time.” Since when do the professional media rely on uncorroborated quotes made by nameless children? The investigation at the time of her statements was made at a premature stage. The media reported a one-sided view of this tragedy and did not seem interested in asserting that their anecdotes are merely an initial assumption and to caution readers to evaluate conclusions after an in-depth investigation by authorities. It was just publish anything and everything just to make “news”. Here’s a prime example — Stephen Moyes at the Sun exaggerates his story initially by exerting in bold, enlarged print: “A TORMENTED boy of nine hanged himself at home after ‘relentless bullying’ at school, his family claimed yesterday.” Moyes’ best attempt at using solid evidence is his one and only direct quote by the victim’s neighbor saying: “Aaron had been targeted by a gang of older bullies at school as he was the new kid but no one thought it was any more than playground stuff.” In fact, it appears that this may not even be a firsthand quote and perhaps Moyes forgot to give credit to the original author? The rest of the article includes numerous, indirect quotes from secondhand sources from other news reports; cheap and imbalanced “news” Mr. Moyes. Unfortunately, Moyes is not the only “journalist” reporting his slanted, biased view; you can find numerous hack stories all over the World Wide Web. Someone even created and posted a YouTube video with sad music and several “news” clips and photos of this poor little guy that was killed at the indirect hands of his haters. Let’s be real careful before assigning a racial motive to a sensational tragedy. It’s only what we’d be demanding had this been the other way around, and especially if it turns out to be something else. Redwinger2 If I were a cop, I’d be looking at Mom…real close. suicide is extreamly rare in children that young. NIH says: In 2007, suicide was the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24.1 Of every 100,000 young people in each age group, the following number died by suicide:1 Children ages 10 to 14 — 0.9 per 100,000 Adolescents ages 15 to 19 — 6.9 per 100,000 Young adults ages 20 to 24 — 12.7 per 100,000 They don’t even start below age 10. I don’t see a racial component in this anyway. Yellow Journalism…not racism. Hummm…checking a little more, there is a picture in the video with a link to 88Europeangirl88. Followed it and it smacks of something the Nazi’s would create. I’ll bet this whole thing is fake. I’ll bet the kid doesn’t exist and Mom is just a little Nazi slut…You know the Nazi’s…the KKK of Europe? Igor “If it bleeds it leads” is an unfortunate motto of the news industry, and with sloppy reporting, heavily-biased agendas, and lack of integrity, nobody but the low-information reader is very happy with following the “news”. (quotes intentional) Fred Kay Never let facts stand in the way of a story! In the Mail Online article his mother was aged both 30 and 22 in the same article! And no one knows for sure if it was suicide?! Nothing has been determined in this case. All we know is the mother says she found him hanging. Did anyone else see this? One has to be a total skeptic when dealing with a “purported suicide” of someone this young. Cashing in, indeed.
