Bisexual High School Student Stabs Bully To Death

Just because you don’t agree with someone’s way of life, doesn’t mean you set your focus on targeting them in an effort to harass or bully them. 

According to NYPost, a bisexual teenager who attends Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in the Bronx stabbed a fellow classmate to death and critically wounded his friend.

18-year-old Abel Cedeno confronted his harassers after they hit him in the back of the head with numerous pencils. After taking a 2-piece to the face, Abel pulled his switchblade and plunged it into the chest of 15-year-old Matthew McCree multiple times, then stabbed 16-year-old Ariane LaBoy for trying to help.

Abel says he’s been bullied for years about his sexual orientation:

“I guess I just snapped,” soft-spoken 18-year-old Abel Cedeno said from a guarded cell at Rikers Island. “I didn’t mean to kill him.”

He went on to state:

“They bully me because I’m different. I’m not like the other boys,” said a tired-looking Cedeno, who was dressed in a brown jumpsuit and closely monitored in the cell by a corrections officer.

I will say, I don’t condone murder but I also don’t condone the murdering of someone’s self esteem either. Bullying is something that I am a strong advocate against. Bullies are weak, they are mentally sick, and more people need to not find it humorous but be able to take a stand against it. It’s never that serious unless it happens to you or one of your children.
