The cunting Daily Mail thread.

Recommended Posts

May I suggest we collect every single piece of outrageous scaremongering from the Daily Mail and post it here.

 

Let me start with this beaut.

 

Girl, 13, hangs herself after becoming obsessed with Emo 'suicide cult' rock band | the Daily Mail

 

 

A girl of 13 killed herself after becoming obsessed with a fashion which links death with glamour, an inquest heard.

 

Hannah Bond hanged herself from her bunk bed with a tie after becoming an "Emo".

 

Emo fans wear dark clothes, practise self-harm and listen to "suicide cult" rock bands.

'Everything to live for': school student Hannah Bond hanged herself not long after showing her father the cuts on her wrists as part of her 'emo initiation'

 

Two weeks before her death, she started following U.S. band My Chemical Romance.

 

One of their songs contains the lyrics: "Although you're dead and gone, believe me your memory will go on."

 

Hannah, described as a model pupil, had started cutting her wrists but told her father it was part of an initiation into the Emo fashion.

 

Heartbroken: Ray and Heather Bond told the court their daughter had told them emo was 'just a fashion'

 

Coroner Roger Sykes said yesterday that Hannah's death was "not glamorous, just simply a tragic loss of a young life".

 

Hannah's mother Heather told the inquest she had researched the trend since her daughter's death.

 

"There are websites that show pink teddies hanging themselves," she said.

 

"She called Emo a fashion and I thought it was normal."

 

She added: "Hannah was a normal girl. She had loads of friends. She could be a bit moody but I thought it was just because she was a teenager."

 

Hannah's father Ray, a karate teacher, said: "Two weeks before, I saw the cuts. I asked her about them and she said it was an Emo initiation.

 

"She promised me she would never do it again."

 

Hannah gave her name as Living Disaster on her page on social networking website Bebo.

 

The page is decorated with a picture of an Emo girl with bloody wrists after slashing herself.

 

Another picture shows a child's exercise book scrawled with the words: "Dear Diary, today I give up. . ."

 

The inquest in Maidstone, Kent, heard Hannah had been with her boyfriend at a friend's house on the evening of September 22 last year.

 

She had been angry when she was told she was not allowed to sleep over and when she got home in East Peckham she went straight to her room, saying: "I want to kill myself."

 

The inquest was told Hannah had not used drugs or alcohol before her death but Vanessa Everett, her head teacher at Mascalls School, said self-harm had become commonplace among other Emo fans.

 

Recording a verdict of suicide, Mr Sykes said: "The Emo overtones concerning death and associating it with glamour I find very disturbing."

 

•The Emo phenomenon began in the U.S. in the 1980s. It is a largely teenage trend and is characterised by depression, self-injury and suicide.

 

Followers wear tight jeans with studded belts and wristbands. Their hair is dyed black and worn in long fringes to obscure their faces.

 

Emo - from the word emotional - is a reference to the angst-filled lyrics and melancholy themes of the rock music central to the culture.

 

One of the foremost of these "suicide cult" bands is My Chemical Romance, from New Jersey.

 

Their first single, Welcome to the Black Parade, from the album The Black Parade, was released in 2006 and became a huge hit, going to number one in Britain.

 

The concept album follows the story of a character called The Patient, who dies of cancer.

 

The Black Parade is a nickname for the place where Emo fans believe they will go when they die.

My Chemical Romance? I'd happily take a pitchfork to that Eidur Gudjohnsen-alike prick.

 

To be fair, aside from members of the Liverpool team past and present, wrestlers and close family members, I doubt there's many people you wouldn't take a pitchfork to.

I've heard that these so called Pop Bands encourage Kid's to kille themselves. They need to be stopped. Untill these so called "suicide cult bands" are stopped (I'm talking about you Right Said Fred's and Dexy's Midnight Runners) who knows when the madness will end!

Apparently we're going to be inundated with an influx of paedophile immigrants who all carry a breed of AIDs that will denounce the legacy of Princess Diana.

I know absolutely nothing about Emo. However, a new lad at school this week was with our learning mentors as we sorted out his timetable. I spend some time in there helping kids with their work and this lad had drawn three "Emo kids" (in his words), one of which he called "Suicide Emo Kid". They all had slash marks on their wrists and when I asked him about it, he said "Life's kind of depressing and being an Emo is about feeling that way. Suicide can make the pain go away." Now I know depressed and vulnerable kids and this lad was neither. However, what concerned me was his perception of being an Emo and the connotations he made with the music. That obviously doesn't mean Emo is about suicide and depression - just that he thinks it is. It was troubling, to say the least.

Hasn't this theory been laughed off about ten times before? Ffs it's the Daily Mail creating their angle. If a kid dies and they haven't been raped by their dad/step-dad/local priest/immigrant then the next question is 'did they listen to any music before it happened?'

 

I'm sorry, but the definitive answer to music/movies/TV influencing kids is that they'd have to be pretty fucked up already to even think about carrying out half the stuff you consume from these mediums. Put the ratio between kids who listen to emo music and kids who listen to emo music and kill themselves on here, then we can get a bit of perspective. In fact I'd be willing to throw a bet on the fact that replacing 'emo music' with 'Coronation Street' in the last sentence would throw up a higher ratio.

I'm not a fan but My Chemical Romance must write some pretty powerful shit if it makes you do that, that's all I can say. Next week they will blame Streetfighter IV when a young deviant pulls some kung fu moves after being ripped off for fruit and veg at the local market.

They blamed Mortal Kombat when I used my animality on a rapscalian who'd be causing mischief in my community.
