No, that's not their fault, the real question is:

should their be a death penalty in the first place?

I think when a person decides to suicide its because of so many internal external factors hurting he or she 's willpower to stand up for themselves and fight back or ignore whats making them think that way. And when a victim does decide to suicide its because of their diminishing willpower to live that depends on their mental state not the state that caused it, although it does share some blame. But No ,i don't think bullies should be charged with murder but strict action must be taken to punish them ,to make them realize of their mistakes but that damage is already done when the victim suicides because I can only hope the guilt factor creeps will creap into the bully and make him or her realize what he or she  could have undone.

But even then, that's still not murder. The victim won't necessarily obey the bully, and even then, that wouldn't be murder. Like Kirsteeeeen said, though, I do think some sort of charge should be set on them.

I think you've got it slightly twisted there- yes, the bully might really hurt the victim (physically and emotionally)- but everybody is responsible for their own actions. That means the victim would choose to commit suicide- and therefore, that is their own action.

No because the bully doesn't actually 'kill' the victim. They only make them want to kill them self

Good heavens, no.

Just like Skittlez said, close to no one will commit suicide only because of bullying. There are probably a lot more negative aspects on their life, and bullying might just be a little more weight on their shoulders.

Also, consider why one would bully somebody else. People usually hurt others because they are hurting inside themselves, and sometimes they don't know better. If they are suffering themselves, instead of just being put to the death, the community should try to help that person, and get them through whatever is troubling them. Then, they might stop bullying others.

I don't necessarily think that those who bully others are bad people. They are simply good people on the inside who bad things have happened to, at least more times than not. And through my eyes, a death penalty is something only real criminals, such as those who murder dozens of people, would deserve. They didn't even directly kill the person. 

And finally, think about this. If someone is punished so heavily because it was a teenager or kid that died instead of, let's say a grown man or woman, and they were sentenced to death, you would basically be killing another teenager, which is exactly what you punished them for in the first place.

I don't think so. You see, the bully did not personally murder the person. The victim did. They took their own life, and that was in their hands. They could have decided not to commit suicide, but the victim didn't. The bully didn't make the decision to kill the victim, the victim did.
