Teen Commits Suicide After Being Caught Cheating On A Test
Omotayo Adeoye, 17, was a bright and promising student at the Harlem High School for Mathematics, Science and Engineering. During a German - Language test last thursday, the senior student was caught peeking at her cell phone by her teacher, Eva Malikova. The upset teacher, snatched the phone from her saying ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be cheating! You guys shouldn’t be cheating! You guys are lying to yourselves!’ ” reported The New York Post.
Embarrassed Omotayo broke down and started crying saying “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” but, Malikova allegedly responded back “Oh, you are not really sorry..... “That’s not a sincere apology!”
Adeoye later requested to be excused to use the bathroom and then never returned back to the class. She was later sighted at the Hudson River placing her ID on a rock, before jumping into the water. Eyewitnesses said she could not swim and seemed to be forcing herself down the river, the Post wrote.
Apparently, the senior student left a suicide note on her desk that read “I just want to go away forever on the bottom of the river,” law-enforcement sources said.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Education declared that they would do their best to address student's mental - health issues. “We are conducting an investigation into this tragic incident, and we are taking immediate action.” The delegate told the Post.
The NYPD is still patroling the river, in search of Omatayo's corpes.
I don't know what's wrong with people these day? There have been several suicide videos on the internet lately. Teenagers simply get mad, pick up a camera expressing why and what they are about to do and then commit suicide. This is crazy! Sometimes our teachers, parents and peers don't understand the level of influence that their actions have on others. We should learn how to talk to others diplomatically and criticize constructively.
We should may a huge effort to instill courage in today's youth and also teach them how to take responsibility for their actions. They need to know how to appreciate life and never see life as something to be "extinguished" whenever "life happens."
