Not really. I`ve been called and told some pretty awful things about myself on the internet by countless strangers, a few I counted as e-Friends.
It sucks, it hurts, but if you aren`t a complete `tard you`ll suck it up and get over it like every other normal human.
Doesn`t work that way. If I go kill myself for the sole reason that you exist, you are not to blame for it simply because your existence caused my suicide. She kept returning to the conversations, kept on talking more.
like our legal system, humanity (or whats left of it), and other crap
also, maybe the girl wasn`t necessarily completely in love with this "Josh" but just felt he was the only one she could trust. And even though its on the internet comments like what the woman wrote can be harmful emotionally as if a person in real life said it, just not nearly as harmful.
A girl is dead. Were it not for this woman, there is a very very very good chance that she would be alive today. It should be that simple.
Unfortunately, our legal system has nothing to do with justice...
Hate to tell you, but uh, we can hid behind it because our Constitution allows us.
They should fry her damn ass.
And what do you know? SHE DOES!
(I`m a /b/tard)
Apparently not, catbarf (especially not the /b/ board). Dear god, if some random guy you don`t know tells you that the world would be a better place without you, you suck it up and move on. Unfortunately hormones can get the best of you at such an age, but come on, killing yourself? I am probably the most out of the loop, unliked kid in the entire school i go to, with kids mocking me left and right for kicks, but you don`t see me wanting to commit suicide. And I`m the same age as her.
Oh, she had problems before the incident? Whoop-de-frickin`-do. Does it make sense to you to arrest a teenager because he called someone a name, and they committed suicide due to their issues?
She gets insulted. She goes back, and gets insulted again. She KEEPS ON RETURNING to the website, and keeps getting degraded. Then she kills herself.
Dear god, have any of these people been to 4chan?
Too bad for her.
The lack of compassion just scares me.
Give me the number. I`ll tell the mother she`s just as guilty for not getting her brat off the internet and being move involved.
i`ve actually seen an online comic strip relaying this exact scene.--(there`s a statute in Portuguese law about inciting suicide and getting 1-5 yrs with a victim of <16 yrs.)the woman, while her actions were somewhat "wrong", should not be charged with anything-- it`s not like she planned on the girl killing herself, however malicious her words.the parents of the girl, as well, should not be charged with anything-- what conspired online was out of their control.
all I see is that some emotionally-fragile teenager killed herself over some few-weeks-long internet relationship. happens all the time in real life relationships too. we just don`t hear about those.
It`s called `freedom of speech`. I may mot agree either but not everyone is the same and not everyone thinks the same. Why post if you cannot have a difference of opinion? You won`t be missed by this bunch.
There`s actually a chance that she did know of this condition, considering her daughter was friends with the victim. If she did, and she did this in full knowledge, then she`s conviction-worty. Otherwise, she`s just a woman considered insane by our society.
"being a mother herself she should know better than to do somthing so childish. she is a grwon up for gods sake."
It`s a fetish of sorts. Everyone has a fetish(and i say this not only in sexual terms, i mean in general, a sort of compulsion), maybe hers is "breaking" little girls` hearts. Now that is evil, but hell, she has freedom of speech, and the girl should know far better than to socialize with strangers, regardless of if she was depressed.
That is a `normal` kid. And Megan `appears` to be normal on the outside too. Was her diagnosis of depression known to the public?
So really, anyone who hooks up with this girl and breaks up with her would totally expect the above to happen.
It did not.
Does this make `Josh` the one to blame? Considering the fact that teenagers hook up and break up on a near-daily basis, no. How can anyone who hooks up with her know she has an underlying problem? heck, even all her friends think she was normal. ANyone of you friends know she has depression?
IMO, The woman is totally responsible for creating a fake ID and toying with a young girl`s emotions. But it is no way her fault that Megan commited suicide UNLESS she knew that Megan had depression.
You are quite annoying, but I suppose you consider yourself a good person because your heart bleeds for every poor, unfortunately soul in the world.
You belittling others for this logical take on this matter and your time wasted attack them makes me pity you.
Also, ten points for stereotyping off a picture that has a possibility of being fake (many users have pondered if the girl in my pictures is really me) and a half-assed answered IAB profile.
sorry its foxs news, but its news.
She`s just not the cause of her death.
now if memory serves, when an adult pretends to a child in order to solicit another child for sexual attention (this woman was posing as an online boyfriend afterall), there is usually a huge red flag there and warrants are sent and computers are confiscated, etc. etc... so in this case, the preying ended up in suicide instead of sexual assault... so i wish it to be explained why this woman shouldn`t be tried for something!
:[ I`m in love with Snake...and deep down, I know his tough-as-nails-killing-machine exterior is really a persona.
RIP Meg, From Jared and Eddie
However, very very few of these end up with suicide, as these kids either have support from others, or they realize there`s more to life.
This girl obviously has neither. And the woman can`t be held responsible for it. She shouldn`t have started the relationship in the first place, and she should have given support, but she`s not at fault for the girl not realizing that breaking up with a boyfriend is not the end of the world.
She was doomed from the moment she started falling in love with the `boy`. The woman should be punished for allowing the girl to fall in love with her persona, but not for her suicide.
I just rolled my eyes and informed the dumb bitches that the statistics of them staying together through the rest of the year are really low.
I must be a bitch because I`m smart enough to realize the difference between love, lust and desperation. Mm.
Uhm, no its not. She was 13, like she really could experience `love` in a few weeks time with a boy she`d never met.
If anything she was so desperate and lonely she mistook the attention as love.
As I said, she`s doomed from the start.
Are you gullible enough to love someone you`ve never met?
This isn`t a simple trolling, this is someone pretending to be in love with someone, and for a teenage girl? a few weeks time with a boy+love involved, ummm fews is fcking enough. For you though I can see how love doesn`t ring anything because you sound like a total b*tch that really wouldn`t know anything about it
The thing about this case is... I`m sure there have been cases where an ACTUAL boy meets an ACTUAL girl, one turns on the other, the other kills themself, but the point is, this was a grown woman KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY creating a false account to deliberately cause emotional distress to this girl.
I don`t care how you feel about the girl, this woman should be punished!
Uh, no, not if they are mentally stable, its not. I`ve been internet trolled for years, but I enjoy trolling right back, so it works out.
"as I usually could care less about ANY insults."
I must be one too. I get insulted, I shrug it off. Most of the time insults are compensation for people`s pathetic lives.
Reading Comprehension. Learn it.
And I have been going on the internet since I was 11. I`ve never had my feelings hurt by some random stranger whom I`ve never met`s comment. I guess I had too many real friends...or I wasn`t stupid."
I apologize, I have a D in the language arts for my lack of attention and comprehension of basic things. And I have no feelings about that sort of thing either, probably because a) I am smart in that department and b) 5 bucks says I`m a sociopath, as I usually could care less about ANY insults.
If that doesn`t scream `off your rocker` I dunno what does.
It is unfortunate that this woman became a significant part of the death of the kid, but really, she`s not the main cause. She should be punished, but not for murder.

I`m not defending the woman who did this; She obvious is a bored housewife who never matured past her High School years, but putting the blame solely on her is silly."
Actually, if I`m sane, from what i understand, you said that the mother should have unplugged the computer. Is that not offense, not defense for the mother? And yes, she should have, instead of continuing to let her daughter go on a social site and then not expecting the girl to get emotionally hurt in one way or another. It`s middle school for god sakes, drama happens.
I`m referring to the clip. She`s just emotionlessly speaking about how the woman deserves to get the maximum sentence. From that, I get the impression that she either doesn`t care or she just doesn`t understand what happened. Iapologize, I have not read other articles.
Anywho, I think the mom should be tried still. People like her don`t need to be on earth either, and when she`s in jail she can get raped and beaten. Not because she "Conviced" this girl to die, but because she ruins myspace for us normal people. Stupid bitch.

oh please, from the looks of the mother, she seemed completely oblivious to the mental condition of the child. I`m 13 myself and I find it absolutely stupid that MySpace is used by kids of my age for no reason. Anyways, Since she is under the age for making an account on said site, can`t it be construed as parental negligence for just letting her log on to the site and then suddenly act shocked when they realized their daughter was mentally unstable?
Perhaps you should get on that.
bla bla bla, I agree with Iroj ;P
I feel no remorse for the girl because she killed herself over something so stupid. Marth said that if the girl hadn`t killed herself over online bullying, it would have been from real life bullying, to which I agreed.
Which is why I said "Yes, if she hadn`t killed herself on that day, it would have been another day."
So you actually don`t have a point and you`re just spouting off random poo. Either that or you`re a sociopath.
Then you just shout it at them from 500 yards away with a megaphone. ;)
Hahha. That totally made me laugh too.
My point is, I feel no remorse for the girl.
4) She didnt kill the girl. This is a free country, she can say whatever she wants to her.
This is completely untrue. Number 3 is untrue because there is precedence set within this case. Just because words were exchanged online doesn`t guarantee jail time. That`s why there is a court system, a judge, and a jury.
A number 4 is ridiculous. I cannot say whatever I want to whomever I want. In many cases that leads to a restraining order. That is obviously impossible for someone anonymous online. And two, you can`t go to someone who is crazy, knowing full well they may harm themselves and tell them to do so. I don`t study law, but I know precedence has been set for this before.
*sniffle* heres where it happened!
Then what is your point? You stressed "online" quite a lot.
Exactly, Marth. Either way, she would have found a way to off herself. Maybe not that day, but it would have happened.
1) Im sure the kid had some major problems if someone is mean to her and she just kills herself.
2) If shes convicted, then basically anyone who puts they are over 13, or 16, or 18, or whatever on any of these sites would be a criminal and should be arrested.
3) If she is convicted, anyone who says something "mean" on the internet has to go to jail.
There are alot of bullies in this world, and they are disguesting and should be punished, but she should be tried for something else.
Usually my opinion on lawyers is: "the world would be a better place without them" (lol), but this time I can see what the guy means.
I could have expected that impulsive reaction from the dead girl`s mom, but if you can`t see that your daughter is not either stupid or just deranged, then you shouldn`t let her online at all.
Then again, she could have had a great like as a sheep...I mean hipster.
Heresrobo, its because we are both rationally thinking people...and we rule. :D
We need less weak-minded, stupid people in the world like that.
I ate vanilla pudding.
I think that mother should be given an award, it`s proven a point. Children need to spend less time online, and more time out in the real world, making real friends, taking crap to each others faces instead of flaming each other online.
Kudos to her! Stupid kids, go play some baseball, or go shopping at the mall, do something, UNPLUG YOURSELF!
I`ll say....if you`re stupid enough to kill yourself over something online, good riddance. Whoever got you to do so should get a trophy.
I like the people waving like crazies behind matt in the beginning oblivious to the seriousness of the story.
