Have you all been following the horrible story of that monster mother in Missouri that created a blog to bully that one 13 year old child named Megan (originally the blog was "18 year old boy" that befriended Megan, then he dumped her in a very cruel way) and the 13 year old child killed herself as a result of this? Um-

Sockpuppets gone horribly evil. (I seriously SERIOUSLY considered she could be Ms Scribe, if not for the age of the woman's daughter.) You can book her on charges for bullying someone on the internet and causing their death, so she's off free and clear.

And she made a SECONDblog titled "Megan Had It Coming." I have no words.

I found a very cheap plane ticket to Birmingham for next weekend, and I plan on taking turns sitting in southernbangel and marenfic's laps until I can not fly into a rage (and tears) everytime I think about this horrible, awful mother. She's a MOTHER. Oh, right. That's not a guarantee of goodness. Bitch.

The worst part is that she claims to be baffled by the hostility being directed at her, saying "any responsible parent would do the same."

Um, on what planet?

Seriously, it's the worst story ever. I can't imagine how her poor kid feels, knowing how it all started.

Oh, my GOD. I have no words either. Why isn't she being prosecuted? Adults verbally abusing kids, no matter what the medium, is illegal. Destroying that girl's self-esteem in a deliberate, malicious, and absolutely horrifying way that leads to... I seriously have no words.

That blog is making me sick to my stomach.

There was some report I saw that said that there were no laws to prosecute her with. Just so boggling.

I think it's time for some up-and-coming judge to set a new precedent on on-line bullying. Gah.

Here's one article: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gg5xCtQtLBF6vJqWXStItGEOsJfwD8TAABS01

There certainly should be laws.

I can't look at any of those blogs. I haven't clicked to them anywhere I have seen this reported. That woman is biologically a mother maybe, but no where near one in any good sense of the word.

Any bitch can be a mother. Literally. It takes a human being to be a mom. This waste of skin and bone is neither.

That woman is revolting. Just...revolting. I am ashamed to live in the same state as her. Good freaking gods.

I just...I have no way to describe how horrible that steaming pile of batshit insane make me feel.

I flagged the blog for having offensive content. It also makes me wonder if it's worthwhile to point out to Blogger what they're hosting.

*hugshugs* It's been a sickening story to follow. The part that made me reel when this was circulating first was that the woman went to the funeral. The fucking nerve. And I think she and her husband are still trying to sue the family with the deceased child, claiming they're harassing them (of course the parents of that girl who committed suicide have since split, so there's another terrible burden for them all to hold that awful woman at least partially responsible for -- what an horrid tragedy for their family).

SHE WENT TO THE FUNERAL? Oh my god, J, if I had been the mother of Megan, I would have flown at her and tried to eat her eyeballs out.

I just don't know what on earth these people were thinking.

*crawls into your lap, too* With this and the Baby Grace tale, it's getting hard for me to send my kids off in the morning. *polar bear hibernates with cubs*

YES! Her family also (I don't know if I'm repeating info from the articles you linked, so apologies if so) asked the deceased girl's family if they could store some stuff at their house *after* the young girl's suicide. WTF? They're sociopaths.

*hugs you tight* The news is so full of appalling scary things sometimes. But that's why it's such a relief to know there are loving moms like you, whose kids will have their own good families and be good people. *hugs*

And I forgot to say, but I'm so glad you'll be able to visit Lee & Maren -- that will be a wonderful time!

WHAT?!? She went to the funeral of the girl she bullied into killing herself? Holy hell, can we say sociopath?

I want to believe that nobody would be that fucking heartless. That it's just some college kid's idea of a joke to pose as that bitch.

Unfortunately, that would mean I'd be hanging on to a shred of faith in mankind, so... no such luck.

When I first heard this story I was more enraged than I had remembered being in a very long time. That an adult could do something so malicious, so cruel, it turned my stomach. And then to create a blog titled "Megan had it coming" and actually try to justify her actions, well, that left me speechless. That said, I read her post and a number of the comments and it's satisfying to see so many people condemning her behavior. It's nowhere near the punishment she deserves for what she's done, but it's something.

Her lack of remorse is reflected in the name of her second blog.

How horrible for the grieving parents that she's laying all the blame at Megan's door.

I've had this linked all over my path for what seems forever, and I still can't understand how Lori Drew could form the idea that her behavior was in any way justified.

When I first heard that the mother was responsible for that blog, I almost threw up because I was so disgusted. Reading that entry sickened me, the fact that she supposedly 'takes responsibility' for her actions by BLAMING THE VICTIM just shows what an atrocious human being she is.

In lighter news, next week we'll be able to bitch about this woman together.

ILU STONEY.

What kind of woman makes it her mission in life to harass a 13-year-old child, literally to death? *has no words*

Oh Jeez
What the fuck is this woman's problem? No seriously. What the fuck? I have no words. What a ridiculous human being. My mother always said, "Grown folks should stay out of children's business." Meaning if the matter can be resolved between the children, then the adults should stay out of it. I am seriously flabbergasted over the nerve of this woman. I don't even know what to say. My heart goes out to Megan's family. It's awful to lose a child, but to lose a child that way...

I couldn't finish reading that defense she put up. It's too disgusting. Going after a child and using her own as a reason is the most.....I hope she's harrassed and shunned the rest of her miserable life.

You were right the first time. She is a monster.

While it's true that criminal charges can't be brought against her, I'm hoping a civil suit is brought against her and every penny she has to her name is taken away.

I think my husband hit it on the nose when he said that she apparently has the mentality of a ten year old ans acted in exactly the same matter a child would. However, she had the power and authority of an adult and therefore was able to drive this poor child to suicide. I'm just disgusted that she is gloating over this.

*cringe* That...wow. I'm sorry, but if you know that someone has problems with depression, you DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT fuck with their psyche or their self-esteem. "Bullied kids go into their rooms and cry, they don't hang themselves"?!? Really? Then why is it so many kids who commit or attempt suicide can trace at least part of their wish to die back to bullying and harassment at school, eh?

And if she's so hell-bent on protecting her daughter, why not give her the tools to handle the stupid crap kids say, and be as supportive of her daughter as she can? What the flying hell??

...Ahem. Sorry. Got a bit ranty there. Seeing as I was the depressed kid in school who got bullied, this kind of thing REALLY gets my goat. *hugs*

That's truly sick and disgusting. Reading through it, I kept thinking "Who would *do* that?" "What's *wrong* with you?" and while occasionally she sounded like she felt a little bad about it, in the end it truly seems like she thinks she did nothing wrong and that her side of things paints her in a positive light. Unbelievable. And being so astonished that the parents wouldn't talk to her after finding out that she was responsible? What? And the name of the blog! God! I'm so angry after reading that.

It really does read like Ms Scribe kind of story. That a supposed adult would think that harrassment was a valid action in the first place was terrible enough. That she would see the tragic results and then DO IT AGAIN BY CREATING ANOTHER FAKE BLOG? AND THEN BASICALLY PROUDLY ACCEPT THE "BLAME" FOR THE SECOND BLOG IN A SICK NEED FOR MORE ATTENTION???????

I just can't even find words strong enough to condemn this sick, twisted, sad person.

I can't look.

I was hoping that was a prank blog. Apparently it's really her. Well, I just can't look. I'm sick to my stomach even knowing it's there.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE'S NO LAW TO PROSECUTE HER UNDER. W. T. F. !!

Someone mentioned civil suit? Oh please oh please ...

God, that comments thread is like a train wreck. I finally tore myself away. Reading quite a number of surprisingly even-handed posts answered by semi-coherent "I DIDN'T DO IT IT'S NOT ME QUIT PICKING ON ME" yelling eventually (mostly) convinced me that there's no point in trying to talk to that woman.

I just hope that her child doesn't end up completely ruined.

Okay. Here's the thing: I was bullied. A lot. I get parents wanting to protect their kids, especially when the other parents refuse to stop the bullying, but there are a lot better ways to go about it. You stay off MySpace for one, and you keep your kid away from it. Rule number one when dealing with bullies: you do not go where they go.

Rule number two: never, ever stoop to that level.

Rule number three: when you face the fallout, you take responsibility.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
