    Okay, thanks buddy. Now to the task at hand:

    Why did you not respond to my post, Fluffyninja?

    Are you more interested in scoring a point than you are in actually discussing subjects?

    This girl was stalked and harassed. That's not her fault. She killed herself. That's her fault.

    What does any of that have to do with something so vague and amorphous as 'bullying'? Why aren't you ridiculing the idea of 'bullicide'?

    The two ideas are not mutually exclusive. This attitude that you seem to be exibiting, that teens are not responsible for their own actions because they are "children" is damaging to society. I'd suggest you reconsider.
    You can't have it both ways......either a 15 year-old is "old enough to be responsible" for her own actions (which is what you claimed) OR others (primarily the parents) must take some responsibility for a 15 year-old CHILD'S behavior. Which is it?

    Can you be empathetic for a moment? If this HAD been your daughter, you would not feel the least bit responsible for her lack of socialization and consistent inability to make good choices?.........I certainly would......but then.......I'm a parent who takes a great deal of responsibility for how my own kids behave.

    Okay, but let's try to focus here.

    I have responded to all of these assertions previously in this thread. Have you gone back and read any of the other discussion here or are you only interested in seeing what you type "pop up"?

    So the following sentence - 'This girl was stalked and harassed- legally- until she decided to commit suicide.'

    Means that she was illegally stalked and harassed?

    Lol...suuuure it does.


    Have a nice day.

While I have not looked at the FL legislative history, my guess would be that the law was created in direct response to that case. Take the misdemeanor part and slap a felony on it too, and you have the tool I think you are looking for. From there it is the job of the parent or the victim to bring in the authorities. If the police do not take it seriously, call the chief, call the prosecutor, call the mayor. Make it a federal statute. Making it a felony really steps up the ability to extradite people.
    That gets some, but not all, these hideous adults. Another common form of bullicide involves befriending a child and getting that child to confide, or to make sexually explicit images of her body, and then taunting her with those disclosures or images.

    More or less what happened to the child in the Op.

    I'm not saying that one law has to address every form of abuse going; I'm just trying to illustrate why, 6 years after Megan Meier died, we're still waiting on a federal bullicide law.

    Prove it.

    Show us the link to your factual proof that this girl's state of mind was sufficient for her to be capable of making rational decisions as far as her life was concerned at the time of her death?

She is completely responsible for that act, whether she really understood or not, no matter all of the extenuating circumstance. The blame for her death lies squarely on her shoulders.

    Secondly I am not about budge on my position on speach. We already have too many laws as is. The law proposed is ridiculusly bad law. Further there are already laws on the books for fraud and other crimes that would applicable. Part of free speach is having to deal with evil speach with evil intent toward our children. We cannot protect them from everything. There is no way. And a vast majority of children can quite frankly deal with the same sitution better than this young girl did. I wish I didnt have to say that but Ive raised children and have a couple that arent mine running about the house now. They are a hell of alot tougher than everyone gives them credit for.

    The fact remains on these crimes listed, action must accompany them before they can be considered crime. For instance consperiacy to murder requires some action on the part of the perpatrator to act on the murder, like researching poisoning methods, to bring said charge, let alone get conviction.

    Hundreds of children dieing, from being bullied on the internet??? I want facts, reports, something. There are over 300 million people in the US. And we need to make a law for how many over six years? More die of murder and attempeted murder in six months, there already laws on the books against that.
    I can likely get the facts you ask for -- lemme see what I have, k?

    Worse comes to worse, I can cobble together a few reports and give you an idea of the scope of the problem.

    I think it can go both ways. I think at 15 it's time for kids to be on their way of learning to be responsible for themselves, but it is up to the parents to take responsibility and give punishment or reward based on the child's decisions and actions.

    Your inability to understand that a parent cannot be responsible for every choice that a 15 year old makes is in the way of you understanding ANYTHING that I have to say on this matter. Couple that with....

    Your constant need to try to bring MY parenting into this thread in an attempt to shame me into seeing things your way.

    It ain't going to work.

    Im a great parent to my kids, and I don't need to agree with you that every choice made by a teenager is their parent's direct responsibility in order to prove that to anyone.

    Quite frankly, your behavior is bordering on flame baiting.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
