Mom on MySpace Kills!

November 20, 2008

I just love this story. Lori Drew this middle-aged woman, her daughter, and her co-worker gets on the MySpace and pretend to be a 16 year old boy. She uses her fake identity to torment this 13 year old girl. I just picture all the good times I’ve spent with people crowded around the computer (my Mom included) egging the person on who’s in the driver’s seat. MySpace drama is what MySpace is for. But sadly, this time the 13 year old girl ends up killing herself over the rejection. This isn’t being considered a murder but still Lori Drew faces 20 years in prison for inflicting emotional stress over a computer.

Of course it’s sad that a 13 year old hung herself, but if someone hangs themselves over a failed internet love, then maybe they shouldn’t be on MySpace. Of course the family of the girl say that 20 years is not enough.
