A disturbing trend continues, sadly close to Big Sky Country, a Cody woman believes her grandson committed suicide because he was repeatedly bullied. The 16-year-old’s best friend agrees, but police aren’t saying much about the teenager’s death. It was the day before Halloween when Sharon Wells left her home to pick up some Halloween candy. Her adopted grandson, Kyle Wells, was at home alone. When she came home a few minutes later, she found Kyle dead of a gunshot wound.
Wells believes bullying helped kill her son. She says he was taunted by other kids throughout his life, because of his small size. “It started when he was in kindergarten. He was about the size of a two year old. And the kids would carry him around and call him their baby…He hated that. He wanted to feel as big and important as they were,” says Wells.
CODEBREAKER Tells The Remarkable And Tragic Story Of One Of The 20th Century’s Most Important People, Alan Turing(by TODpixFilms)
CODEBREAKER tells the remarkable and tragic story of one of the 20th century’s most important people. Alan Turing set in motion the computer age and his World War II codebreaking helped turn the tide of the war.
Instead of receiving accolades, Turing faced terrible persecution. In 1952, the British Government forced him to undergo chemical castration as punishment for his homosexuality. In despair, Turing committed suicide. He was only 41 years old.

On behalf of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a grassroots civil rights organization, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) has filed a lawsuit against Scott Lively for conspiring to deprive members of the Ugandan LGBT community their basic fundamental rights. Lively, an American author and anti-LGBT activist, has been actively involved in Ugandan politics since his first visit to the country in 2002. Uganda has a horrid record of anti-LGBT activity, most notably the “Kill the Gays” bill which received national attention here in the United States earlier this year.
Lively has frequently claimed credit for starting the hateful movement in Uganda, and in response to the lawsuit, has chosen to hide behind the First Amendment and religious freedom. Rebuking Lively’s defense, CCR Advocacy Program Manager Laura Raymond claimed “When one group of people conspires to deprive another group of people of their fundamental rights based on their identity it is persecution - a crime against humanity - and illegal under international law.”
