Two Teens Who Bullied Felicia Garcia Suspended From School

Two teens have been suspended for bullying a 15-year-old, who jumped in front of a train, after ‘video of her group sex with four football players was posted online.’ Is this punishment enough?

Felicia Garcia, 15, had been branded a “slut” and relentlessly tormented by fellow classmates, after she had group sex with four football players during a wild party on Oct. 19 — and a videotape of the sexual encounter surfaced on the Internet.

The tormented high school freshman, who was living with a foster family, killed herself on Oct. 24, when she fell backwards onto the train tracks after school at Huguenot Staten Island Railway — in front of her horrified classmates.

The pair of students, both 17, who were suspended, “abused and made fun of” Felecia following rumors claiming she had sex with four football players.

“The dismissed students were not on the school’s team. These kids used poor judgment, and they did something they’re going to have to live with for the rest of their lives,” a source told The Advance.

Do you think the punishment is enough, HollyMoms?

People were mean to me when I was in school also….very mean……I never thought to kill myself. I hate bullying, but if everyone killed themselves every time they were bullied, it would be a lot of dead teens.

Though it’s tragic that she committed suicide, it would be wrong to expel the bullies because of that. Yes, it’s wrong to bully someone, but the punishment should fit the crime. If Person A bullies Person B to the same degree that Person C bullies Person D, they should be punished to the same extent even if Person D commits suicide while Person B doesn’t. The case could be made that all bullies should be expelled and that would be fair; it’s just not fair to say these bullies, unlike other bullies, deserve to be expelled instead of suspended just because of the aftermath. It’s not like the bullies WANTED her to kill herself. I want to stress that I’m not advocating leniency, just equal punishment. Also, to some of the other commenters: she was a slut by definition for doing what she did. You can make excuses all you want by saying she came from a bad background, was drunk, etc., but she made the decision to get drunk, which led her to have sex with four boys. And a slut is a slut regardless of why. Would you say someone wasn’t a thief, murderer, etc., just because they had a bad childhood or were under the influence of something? No. What’s sad is that had she been older, this probably wouldn’t have happened. Emotions run so high in teenagers that it’s easy to think that something is the end of the world when, honestly, few things are bad enough to be worth killing oneself over.

I would love to hear what you would say if this happened to your daughter if you have one. I know, I know, IT WOULD NOT HAPPEN TO YOUR DAUGHTER. THE PARENTS OF THE OTHER MANY SUICIDE VICTIMS DIDN’T THINK SO EITHER.

Forever amused that the girls are always labelled as sluts while the boys were ‘just being boys’. This world makes me sick. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING SEX. Seriously.

When you’re 15. Yes there is. If she was older, no problem. No names. But if you’re 15, you will be branded a slut by other peers.

We’re you there? Do you know anyone involved? Were you involved? Can you say, without a doubt, that she was not drugged? Could someone have slipped something into her drinks?
Who provided a 15year old with alcohol? Where was this party held? We are all talking about things without definitive answers. When we get to Who? Where? When? How? And Why? We can come to informed conclusions as to what should be done to whom! A LIFE HAS ENDED.
IN A VERY BRUTAL WAY, I MIGHT ADD. How can you continue to abuse her memory by calling her names now. SHE’S DEAD!!!! LEAVE HER ALONE. if you do not have any children of your own, think about what you would do if this happened to your future child. Do not say that it wouldn’t because it could. Would you be saying the same thing then? And don’t give me that PEER crap! Her peers should have been trying to get those guys off of her because that is all the think about at that age and you know it!!! They will do ANYTHING for it and because there are 4of them and she is gone, nothing will be done to them? Give me a break. I am sure someone will have something hateful to say to my post also and that is OK. ONLY LEAVE HER ALONE. WITH THE AMOUNT OF TEENAGE SUICIDES IN THE PAST YEAR, I AM ALL FOR EXPULSION OF BULLIES FROM ANY SCHOOL. EVEN COLLEGE. IT MUST NOT BE TOLERATED. IF YOU CAN ANSWER ANY OR ALL OF THE ABOVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO. THEN WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET SOMEWHERE. I am a mother who has lost a child and does not ever want anyone else to feel that immense tortuous pain. A pain that never goes away so please,leave her alone.
Please?

This is very tragic. No matter the punishment this girl is still dead. No, no one pushed her but no one helped her either. IMO both sides are at fault but only one side is here to take total blame. My heart goes out to all families

suspended…. maybe they should get expelled or something. look obviously this girl made a huge mistake by doing those thing and she may also have self-esteem issues, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to call her a “slut”, make up some rumors about someone, make fun of her or anything that could be done to bully her. she’s just another human being who made a mistake, but who doesn’t? kids these days are the worst kind of people out there right now.

people need to stop blaming everybody for somebody else’s mistakes and decisions. Nobody pushed her to the train tracks (at least that’s not being said so far). Obviously she had serious self-esteem issues and she had to talk to somebody about her problems. I am really sorry for this loss, but kids nowadays have to TALK! They need supervision, they need to be taught good values. Please think twice before doing something like group sex at the tender age of 15, think twice before reaching a no hope point. There’s always somebody who can help you go through your situation, there’s always a solution, always. I realize bullying has to stop, but change has to come form both sides of the problem. I hope this teaches kids to think twice about their problems and communicate more with their friends and family when they face similar problems.

The girl was 15 and a freshman in school who was living with foster parents. Obviously she had exteem issues. For people to say of course she was a slut never walked in her shoes. Never knew why she did what she did. The guys are stupid for ostinfg the video which would be considered child pornagraphy. If tormenting someone makes you feel better than I feel that that the tormentor has mental issues themselves. These kids got off easy . She is dead and never had a chance to fix her life or her mistakes. May she rest in peace! And the others well I won’t say!

Those that blame the foster parents don’t understand the complexities of foster parenting or kids in the system.
Everyone makes mistakes especially when alcohol is involved. Calling her a slut is only adding to the problem. The video is illegal period. She was underage and regardless of consent the video should have never happened. It drives me crazy when people call others sluts. You don’t know her reasons or situation do not judge her. If you blame her foster parents who did not raise her from birth what do you say to the boys’ parents or the bullies’ parents. We can advise all we want but they’ll make their own choices and should learn from their mistakes. Now maybe they’ll understand their words have impact though I fear the others calling her a slut still will only give the bullies validation where none should exist

If a girl at my school had sex with 4 guys I’d call her a slut too. I wouldn’t have beat her up or anything, or even said anything to her, but she made a big mistake by getting drunk and letting 4 guys take advantage of her. Why were her foster parents not aware of this stuff?

then, IHeartLux, you’re part of the problem.

besides in the eyes of the law, no drunk person can consent to sex. she wasn’t thinking right and probably acting out. she was in fostercare and obviously had a low self esteem leading to her actions and her death.

If knowing all that about this girl doesn’t make you think twice about calling some other girl a slut, then obviously you’re the type that cause problems for these girls. you don’t know why someone does things they do, so maybe before using hurtful stupid words like “slut” you should think about how you would feel if someone hurt themselves because of those words.

I hope whoever took the video receives criminal charges.

oh for gods sake, shut up! She was a fifteen yer old girl who made a mistake. The kids who posted that video of her online should be severely punished and the kids who bullied her should also be severely punished. Words are as much of a weapon as guns or knives and those bullies killed her with them. Those kids may as well have grabbed her and threw her infront of that train themselves.

I’m sorry but I feel like there should be some punishment towards the foster family that allowed a 15 year old girl to go off and get so intoxicated that she had sex with 4 other teens. That is horrifying and yea, after you participate in an activity like that… Some might brand you as a slut. She did not deserve what happened to her but actions have consequences and I think it’s unfortunate that her foster family wasn’t watching her close enough. At 15 she was a minor.

How is that? Lock her in her room 24/7? Kids get in trouble all the time. Parents can’t be held responsible always! Foster care is not the point here! Any girl who has group sex is bound to suffer repercussions! I’m sorry this ended in her death. Teens are having sex way too young these days & don’t think twice! People need to stop using excuses such as alcohol.

and how bout for the ones that do get too drunk and exercise poor judgement? do they deserve gettin picked on by other people who have their own faults to the point where its unbearable to live? if it really mattered what someone else is doing with their lives to the point where i’m making comments, i would try to give the person some good advice and not just criticize. what good would i be doing? people need to stop being so judgmental of others. she was probably feel feeling bad enough for doing something that potentially could have caused her lots of harm (i.e. forced sex, stds, etc)
