[CNN] Mom indicted in deadly MySpace hoax - Page 2

post #11 of 88
any 49 yr old that has nothing better to do than get involved in immature teen drama should be shot anyway, get a life.

this is definitely a terrible tragedy, the girl obviously had emotional problems to begin with and her parents are looking to blame someone else for this, but they should look at themselves, they could have gotten her professional help and kept her off the myspace, period..

The parent involved, however, I could see getting charged with severer penalties, but again only if it can be proven that she was fully aware of the consequences her actions would have.

This is the parents looking for someone to blame because they wish they could have done something different in hindsight and don't want to blame themselves. Should the kids get into trouble? Sure, but don't go overboard with the felony murder charges (the adult withstanding)... Karma will come around eventually. It always does.
OK, so let me ask you this, if this was a man having a fake online relationship with this girl.. would they give him the same sentence? No I bet they'd charge him with sexual harassment and label him as a pedophile even if he was just pulling a prank like this mother was. This is still a adult having a relationship with a younger teenager, fake or not, its unacceptable. She made the girl believe she was real and the girl believe she was having a relationship with someone, which was actually a adult.

Maybe charged for murder is to much, but she should atleast be put on the sexual offenders list. A adult should never put themselves in a situtation like this mother did, she does not have something right in her head.

C'mon!
It wasn't merely chatting, she was saying she was a young boy and having a fake relationship. This is totally wrong for a adult no matter how you look at it, even if it is a prank.

1) It is not software that is installed on our computers.
2) It doesn't affect overclockers or deal with new computing technology.

On a side note, you didn't edit the part you quoted to get rid of the images and advertisements.

Now you're changing with what you are charging the adult versus what you said before. You had said murder charges. I have no problem with sexual-related charges, especially if such conversation took place.

I'd be OK with her being charged for sexual related charges or murder charges. Although the sexual related charges would probably be more fitting for her now that I thought about it a bit more.

However if she knew the girl suffered from depression and whatnot then I think the punishment should be more severe than just some sexual related charges.

Neither does CBS buying Cnet, geeksquad getting sued, windows 7 isn't installed on no one computer yet either, the air force having plans with online warfare, and a couple of other things on here.

The internet is available to our computers so technically it does affect computing technology. What happens on the net affects almost everyone. As you can see there were some responses that hit close to home with some of the other posters and they are members of OCN. Also I don't know about you, but I rather know about some of the crazy things people do out there so I can be prepared mentally if some similar happens when I'm around.

Well, if they are looking for people lying about their sex and identity, they need look no further for their next down payment on a new prison then 90% of the female Night Elves in World of Warcraft.

I don't think the Mother should really face any jail time, Community Service, maybe public humiliation, which I am sure she is currently enduring plenty of at the moment.

Did I ever say that was ok? I'm just arguing the "prank" in this case can't be the only reason the girl took her own life. Even if it is, that would be like if I called up Comcast Cust. Service dept, complained about them overcharging, but was a complete ass, made the service rep feel like ****, it pushes them over the edge and they kill themselves. Am I at fault? Would I be prosecuted? I understand the mom went out of her way to develop an "internet relationship", but still, this couldn't have been the only factor pushing this girl to the edge.

All of those 3 items you listed work because CNET has many, many reviews of technology used by us, people purchase items at Best Buy, and updates on Windows 7 is just as important as updates on XP or Vista since it will affect our computers (same as any hardware information update).
