I see you have run out of points
Had none from the beginning anyway,not surprised
If you have evidence that the teacher was in the wrong prove it
So far we read she is exonerated
Why should that make you mad?
When all is required is that you show us evidence of wrongdoing on her part

Exactly!! sorry for her loss but the school did nothing wrong


But it's going to make it so we never get quality teachers. Everyone will be afraid at dealing with other people's children. Especially when teachers are the one's raising the children in this screwed up society but at risk of being sued for a payday...

3 days ago
am underground
Sorry the child died but the only think I hear is that it's not my responsibility. Another parent looking for a free ride.


Reading, writing and arithmetic. Not psychiatry, not lockdown, not psych wards, not mommy #2 who actually feeds the kid… All that is for the parents. A kids life does not start when she or he walks into a building to learn how to read…


I feel bad for the child obviously and her mom is obviously gutted but this is just a blatant money grab IMO. The kid already tried to commit suicide and now you want to get paid because she did so again and this time was successful? As horrible as that is you can't blame the city for this. Or the taxpayers who would be paying the bill on that lawsuit. RIP to that poor baby, I feel sad for her. But she didn't do this just because of what happened that day and no one can stop someone who is intent on doing something like this. If they did something more harsh they would get sued for violating her rights or something stupid like that. You can't win in this case, all I know is the poor girl is gone and its a darn shame it went that way.

Why this country consists of such moronic laws that allows any angry idiot to file a lawsuit is beyond me. I honestly don't understand how lawyers are having a hard time finding jobs coming out of school given the litigiousness of this country. Anyway, how many times did I see a fellow student get caught for cheating, exposed for doing so and chastised in front of the class Isn't that what is supposed to take place? She the teacher have applauded this girl for cheating I'm sorry but if your kid's skin is that thin or their mental state that fragile so as not to handle being reprimanded for cheating in school, what was she doing in school and not a mental hospital to begin with? I find it difficult that the parent didn't notice any signs of this girl's depression or suicidal tendencies before this incident.


So many questions
Why is the NYPD part of the suit?
If the girl previously tried suicide, why is it assumed the teacher would know that?
If the child has the phone out during an exam, is there any other logical reason other than cheating?
Is asking a child to hand over the exam and phone publicly shaming?
If the student is so mentally ill, why was she in school and not an institution? Looks like someone just wants a payday

Mounsurat Adeoye filed the suit against the city Department of Education and NYPD after her 17-year-old daughter, Omotayo Adeoye, fled from her Manhattan high school and drowned in the Hudson River.

Why is she suing NYPD and the city department of education and not the teacher or the school?

Life (and this case) is not & should not be all about money!!!
It is sad, very sad that this is coming from someone who claims to be living in the US since many decades ago.
I guess the saying you take the girl from the village but you may not be able to take the village from the girl is true afterall.

Why sue the teacher who is an AGENT of the New York LGA
If the case goes through the New York LGA will learn to improve its teacher recruitment, training and motivation arrangements and ANALYSE the direct & remote causes of the teenage girl's demise to ensure there is no repeat of such tragic occurrence, nor be so?

When shall we stop behaving like un-evolved PRIMITIVE apes

What is your issue you nincompoop
Not about money and a woman is asking to be paid for her daughters successful suicide after she couldn't handle humiliation for being a cheat
She attempted prior ,remember?
Do you think NY city or the school board prints money
It is the taxpayers that will foot this bill for this her blood money if your ignorant self doesn't know this
This girl is mentally ill and her mother insists she must be a doctor
Why?
Would you want a suicidal doctor treating you ?

Why shouldn't a loving mother know to take her sick child off such a mentally challenging environment into a regular school
Why does she keep a mentally ill daughter in a school with such high and rigorous academic standards where she couldn't cope and had to resort to cheating.

How many suicidal attempts before she got the picture?
People don't just wake up and commit suicide,she must have shown signs of depression,why didn't this mother pointing fingers everywhere pick Up on that and seek mental help for her daughter
She bears about 30% of the blame and her daughter 65% IMHO.
The child lives with her at home
Did you read the part that the city didn't find the teacher guilty of any wrong doing?

The school district does not hire teachers and send them to school the schools do so why not sue the school ?
And why is New York police department NYPD part of the law suit
They didn't catch her before she jumped undecided
Those were my questions

Oh I understand
The girl is Yoruba

More stories

[size=18pt]Omotayo stopped wearing her Muslim head scarf,ran Away from home repeatedly and she and mom had yelling matches[/size]



Before she flung herself into the Hudson River over an allegation of cheating, Omotayo Adeoye had the world at her feet.
She was an honor student at one of the city’s most competitive high schools, took advanced classes at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and was waiting to hear if she’d qualify for a ­National Achievement Scholarship for college.
“Mad colleges want me!” a neighbor recently overheard the proud Bronx teen boast.
But as divers continued searching for her body off Washington Heights on Saturday, a darker picture emerged of the sadness and struggle surrounding the ­junior at Harlem’s HS for Math, Science and Engineering.
Adeoye, a 17-year-old Nigerian immigrant of Muslim faith, drowned herself Thursday less than two hours after her German-language teacher, Eva ­Malikova, screamed at her for peeking at her cellphone during a test.
“I just want to go away forever on the bottom of the river,” the humiliated girl wrote on the test, turning it into a suicide note, sources said.
Her note also included a reference to “dignity,” a source added.
But for at least two years prior to her death plunge, the girl struggled with depression and had run away from home repeatedly in the past two years, friends, fellow students and others who knew her told The Post.
“Her family was very worried. They found her walking near the river in Manhattan [last year],” said Pedro Jimenez, the superintendent at Adeoye’s Mott Haven apartment building.
One neighbor, Manzel Jones, 44, said the girl never seemed to socialize.
“It’s either she was going to school, doing the laundry or playing basketball in the park by herself,” Jones recalled.
She walked with her head down. She wouldn’t look at you, never made eye contact. She seemed stressed all the time.”
“When she ran away [earlier this year], she was gone for three days,” Jones added. “Her mother was lying on the floor in the hallway, crying and knocking on doors, asking, ‘Have you seen my daughter? She didn’t come home from school.’

“When she came back, she still looked depressed,” he said.
[size=18pt]Adeoye could sometimes be heard arguing heatedly with her mother in their Mott Haven apartment. She would walk with downcast eyes through the building’s halls and lobby, said neighbors.[/size]
“You could see the negativity in her. She always looked sad and walked with her head down,” said neighbor Jelianys Perez, 16. “She didn’t speak to anyone.”
More than a year ago, Adeoye stopped wearing a traditional headscarf, or hijab, without explanation, recalled Comfort Olowo, who played basketball with her on the school team.
Olowo, of Canarsie, Brooklyn, said that as somber as Adeoye could be at home, she was a lighthearted and optimistic presence on the team.
“We’d be losing a game, but she’d be, ‘It’s OK. We can still get this,’ ” Olowo recalled.
Another teammate, Donna Fintzi, 18, of Riverdale in The Bronx, agreed.
“She’s a really bubbly girl. She’s always smiling,” Fintzi said.

Junior Sebastian Villada, 17, of Woodside, Queens, said that in ninth and 10th grades, Adeoye was in her class’ top 10 for grades. Those grades fell slightly this year, “but she still had a ­90-plus average,” he said.
Junior Natalie Sharp, 17, of Chelsea, said: “She was really nice and really funny. That’s what everybody remembers about her.”
“She didn’t talk to many people, but if you talked to her, she’d talk to you.”
“We had gym class together last year, and she was really fast. I’d ask her how she was so fast, and she’d crack jokes and say, ‘I’m from Nigeria — it’s part of my culture,’ ” Sharp said.
After gym class, “to prove her speed, she’d run for the halal cart and get a doughnut and still beat me upstairs, and then she’d give me a smile and we’d laugh.”
In response to the apparent suicide — the 14th among students this school year — Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced Saturday that she has lifted the system-wide hiring freeze on guidance counselors.
Malikova, who law-enforcement sources say unwittingly spurred the girl’s apparent suicide, could not be reached for comment Saturday.

Re: Nigerian Girl Commits Suicide In New York by Nobody: 4:55am On Nov 16, 2014
Her Own mother seems to be the cause of her depression reading this new story
Is it a co incident that her troubles started about the same time she stopped wearing her Muslim scarf?
I think not
Did she want to leave her faith ?I hope they investigate this case thoroughly
I can imagine her mother would be upset about it and gave her beef for it perhaps abused her physically for it like a typical Nigerian parent.
Shouting matches with her own mother,the same mother accusing the school of yelling?
She ran away from home numerous times and earlier in the year for 3 whole days ,obviously her trouble is from home and not the school?
I didn't read this story when I said the mother should be prepared for everything that will come out regarding her parenting of this child
The account above paints a picture of a child that was happy and bubbly at school but very miserable at home
Perhaps anticipating her mother's harsh reaction on hearing of her cheating drove her to kill herself

Who knows
Where is the father?
This story is getting interesting

I think it's insensitive of you guys to speak ill, or mock or jeer at such mishap. The fact that you guys don't see suicide as an option if such was to happen to you, doesn't mean you should expect everyone to be like you. Some are born to be stones, others are born to be eggs. This young lady had a fragile heart and a weak psychology. Just as most of you who have nagging and unbearable headache would go to your rooms and sleep it off, she did the same, technically. Her weak mind couldn't bear the embarrassment and the reproach, so the only thing she could think of was to go to sleep(take her own life).

If you truly wanted to have a clue why some people with weak minds chose to take their own lives, then I'd advise you get detained in North Korea's detention camp for a year, and let's see how many of you wouldn't develop suicidal tendencies!

Let's be sensitive to issues like this please!

You're a shi*t eating dog, a retar*ded slave with no identity who badly wants to be white. I'm most likely more civilised than you are, but I'm also smart enough to recognise the importance of culture/tradition in a child's upbringing.

The Asians where ever they are, raise their kids in a fashion with conforms to Asian norms & tradition, same goes for all other ethnicities except inferior thinking Africans like you who use Hollywood as their paradigm.

They are government employees that are trained for protective services. They can make arrest just like police officers. They operate the cctv's and keep situations in control pending the arrival of the police. They are usually the first responders to emergency situation before the arrival of fires services and police services. They are also used in schools, hospitals and other government institutions to monitor people or safe guard life and property.
