    I think this is the 4th suicide of a Monrovia High School student in the last 18 months. It is a problem that the school system should address.

    How dare you post this article and put the blame on the boyfriend?! Shame on you! You’re putting the boyfriend on blast on the media? If you have no proof or anything you shouldn’t say nothing! Have some respect!
