god this is so sad. Im sure it wont be hard for the police to track down the guy who blackmailed her.
it's really fucked up, but there is a something horribly hypocritical in the media reception it's getting; she's only become coverable because she's dead. There is a certain bulliedhotgirlsuicide fascination that makes me feel uncomfortable. But it is nevertheless tragic, and more should've been done by her parents/the schools/the authorities to stop it progressing this far.
I had a similar reaction. In particular, can't see any justification at all for there being 30 photos of her on that report.
I tried to post a comment to that effect, but it wasn't approved.
(on the Huff Post, I mean)
Should have refreshed. Still, bears repeating.
we were both in year 8.
I think she got some shit, but it was much more BANTS than something vindictive. I'm pretty sure after a month or something no one gave a shit.
Do sort of worry the internet is turning kids into psychos. People can be dicks on here (as in dis) and it's sort of fine really cos everyone understands the distinction between here and irl. Don't think it's the same with kids. They've always been wankers though obvs, but i dunno.
Imagine if how people were like on here was how everyone was irl. We'd all be unbearable. That's what the mid-twenty year-olds of 2022 are gonna be like i reckon.
as a side note, I think there definitely needs to be more education regarding the risks of certain forms of online communication. I often think that people, and not just teenagers, regularly leave themselves vulnerable to the kind of exploitation this girl was subjected to.
