From the Buffalo News:
The lingering question of what else could have been done may always follow the family and friends of 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer. And there is probably no suitable answer.
While it can never be clear whether it would have helped in this situation, there are indications that efforts were being made to prevent this tragedy.
Jamey was found dead outside his home of an apparent suicide.
The Williamsville North student was seeing a social worker and therapist and had written about teen suicide prevention. In May, he posted a YouTube video with the description "Jamey From Buffalo, New York telling you, IT GETS BETTER!"
He even put up a post announcing that it was National Suicide Prevention Week on Sept. 8, the same day he wrote that no one at his school cared about preventing suicide, "while you're the ones calling me [gay slur] and tearing me down."
Bullying has reached new depths with the advent of the Internet and a wellspring of social media to follow young people home from the schoolyard.
Gone are the days when bullying stopped at the kid's front door. Now, it's gone viral. And, in the case of Jamey, who wrote online about being bullied between posts about his pop star idol Lady Gaga, the results were deadly.
Well, this is our podcast for September 24, 2011 I am Dave Balog, information person for A Thousand Moms: Building Community Support for LGBT/Q Youth in Foster/Adoptive Care. Pull up a chair, settle in and listen to our discussion. Thank you for tuning in.
More than 500 people gathered at Saints Peter and Paul Church on Main Street Saturday morning to pay their respects to Jamey Rodemeyer. The 14-year-old Williamsville North High School freshman took his own life earlier this week. His parents and friends say he was the target of bullying both at school and online. We need to pass the NO BULLYING LAW, for Jamey, and all the victims who have encountered the same issue. We fully support the "Paws Up Forever Project. D2BD fans please spread the word and help stop bullying.

-1ST HOUR Even after his death, 14-year-old New Yorker Jamey Rodemeyer (pictured) is still being taunted by bully kids at his school.In an interview with The Today Show, Jamey’s parents spoke of the horror they endured when their daughter had to listen to further taunts about her late brother at her homecoming dance last week.“She was having a great time, and all of a sudden a Lady Gaga song came on, and they all started chanting for Jamey, all of his friends,” said mother Tracey Rodemeyer of the incident to reporter Ann Curry.“Then the bullies that put him into this situation started chanting, ‘You’re better off dead!’ and ‘We’re glad you’re dead!’ and things like that.“My daughter came home all upset. It was supposed to be a time for her to grieve and have fun with her friends, and it turned into bullying even after he’s gone.”Jamey’s father Tim Rodemeyer added: “I can’t grasp it in my mind. I don’t know why anyone would do that. They have no heart, that’s basically what it comes down to.”On the weekend Lady Gaga dedicated a performance of her song Hair to Jamey at the I Heart Radio festival, announcing ‘We lost a little monstePushed to the edge by Jamey’s story, the singer then met withObama this week when she crashed a presidential fundraiser in California.It was reported that after she first thanked Obama for all his work on anti-bullying, the singer and equal rights activist then ‘pleaded’ with the President to do whatever it takes to prevent bullying, even making it illegal as a ‘hate crime’.The President reportedly responded by thanking Gaga, and went on to talk about his administration’s devotion to finding a solution to the bullying epidemic.
