Megan Meier Moms (5 xxx)

megan meierWhy do moms need to start cyberbullying people until they commit suicide? Yes, for crying out loud, one should think moms are the ones having the brains in this world!

But after Megan Meier’s suicide being bullied on MySpace like so:

megan meierMegan Meier, a 13-year-old Missouri girl driven to suicide by relentless online bullying.
The fact that the bullying appeared to be instigated by the mother of one of Megan’s friends through a fake MySpace account …

Another mom bullying Linky Love

The other day I left a way too fast written comment at Ahpek.com‘s and got a comment back from another reader 5xmom calling me a little pesk. Now I do know that I can be utterly persistent, yet there was no such behavior in my comment.

In our culture the younger do respect the less younger, but
getting such a remark from a mom who even never ever showed her face on my blog… Hello, this is a mom you know.

As you can see, I am not suicidal yet and still alive 🙂 but mom’s are the ones we do look up to and take examples from!

Stop bullying people, especially when you cannot see their reactions behind their computer, let alone their psychological strength… What happened to Internet Courtesy? Computers, avatars, blogs don’t have feeling, people do and they do die easily!

  5. Sound of Silence says

    Just let the person be. She thinks that just because she’s a pro-blogger and earning mullah of money through blogging, it gives her the right to be a cybercop and pat poh at everyone’s issue and become high and mighty like a bitch queen that she is.

    She basically gives mothers and chrisitian a bad name with her attitude and her postings about her life and her rants!! Put that ugly picture of herself in the blog again! Like some road side no longer wanted whore!! Think she soo preety ah? Make me want to uek only.

    Ooh. I forgot, she got disclaimer that what she says is lies and doesn’t reflect who she truly is (some sweet lady who sings and read in church.. uek uek..with Christians like her, we don’t need radicals and paedo priest to give it a bad name) so, its all lies what she writes about you..actually, she lurves you and she’s envious of u, that’s why she write so much.. hahaha

  6. @Sound of Silence

    I love a good debate!

    Just that people should both get the facts and in this case especially the people behind the facts right, before starting a war.

    She is a respected PPP high earner: All the frustrations of always having to write a positive PPP blog come out in a non paid post like the one she refers to 🙂

    She earns big $$$ I only earn 2 cents, so I do doubt there is any envy. I do wish I was earning as much as she is. Anyway, with a 6 months old blog I still have a long way to go.

    And in the end: the title of her blog is:
    Life, Lies, Sex, Humor

    … so I assume this is her humorous side 🙂

  7. I personally think you should moderate your comments like the one from Sound of Silence. I always believe never to associate faith/religion into a ‘debate’.

    Do not drag faith/religion into your personal battles.

  8. @Terence

    Agreed!

    Also URLs to the commentors’ blog would be appreciated 🙂

  9. On Wednesday, October 21st, city officials enacted an ordinance designed to address the public outcry for justice in the Megan Meier tragedy. The six member Board of Aldermen made Internet harassment a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail.

    Does this new law provide any justice for Megan? Does this law provide equitable relief for a future victim or actually weaken the current law?

    I reject the premise of this new law and believe it completely misses the mark. The reasoning behind this opinion is that city officials have consistently treated this case as an Internet harassment case instead of a child welfare/exploitation case.

    Classifying this case a harassment issue completely fails to address the most serious aspects of the methods Lori Drew employed to lead this youth to her demise. The Vice disagrees that harassment was even a factor in this case until just a couple of days before Megan’s death.

    Considering this case a harassment issue is incorrect because during the 5 weeks Lori Drew baited and groomed her victim, the attention was NOT unwanted attention. It was not harassment at all. It was invited attention. Megan participated in the conversations willingly because she was lured, manipulated and exploited without her knowledge.

    This law willfully sets a precedent that future child exploiters and predators can use to reclassify their cases to harassment issues. In effect, the law enacted to give Megan justice, may make her even more vulnerable. So long as the child victim doesn’t tell the predator to stop, even a harassment charge may not stick with the right circumstances and a good defender.

    Every aspect of this case follows the same procedural requirement used to convict a Child Predator. A child was manipulated by an adult. A child was engaged in sexually explicit conversation (as acknowledged by Lori Drew herself). An adult imposed her will on a child by misleading her, using a profile designed to sexually or intimately attract the 13 year old Megan.

    Lori then utilized the power she had gained over this child to cause significant distress and endangerment to that child. She even stipulated to many of these activities in the police report she filed shortly after Megan’s death.

    We can go on and on here, but the parallels between this case and many other child predator cases that are successfully prosecuted bear striking similarities.

    Child Predator laws do not require much more than simply proving that an adult has engaged a minor in sexually explicit conversation. Lori Drew has already stipulated that her conversations with Megan were sometimes sexual for a child Megan’s age.

    City officials who continue to ignore this viable, documented admission and continue to address this issue as harassment are intentionally burying their heads in the sand, when the solution is staring them right in the face. Why?

    On June 5th, 2006, Governor Matt Blunt signed into law stiff penalties for convicted sex offenders. The Vice believes that officials continually reject a child predator classification of this case in order to keep the penalty of this offense out of this harsher realm.

    Opponents of this law are active in defeating this law not by changing it, but by disqualifying cases like Megan’s from ever being heard.

    There are several other child exploitation laws on the books. To date, none of them have even been considered by City, State and Federal officials in this case. I’m outraged that a motion was never even filed, so that the case could at least be argued before a judge or jury.

    Those satisfied with this response out of Missouri officials need to think through the effect this law will truly have. It quite honestly has the potential to directly undermine Jessica’s law. It quiet easily gives prosecutors a way out of prosecuting child endangerment and child predator cases in the future.

    Beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing here.

    Thanks for adding some depth in the superficiality. Children die and the media tries to focus on everything or anybody: as long as they don’t have to dig deeper.

    @Sound of Silence

    Like you said in your first sentence: “just let the person be”.

    @all anonymous posters:

    1. please state the reason why you want to keep your URL anonymous (since this is a blog that loves to give links, it’s quite “strange” behavior to post without your URL). Unless you don’t have an URL: please let us know as well (we do understand that there are still real people with real lives out there 🙂 )

    2. if you want to scold and scold back for whatever reason you feel fit: please do it on the appropriate blogs.

    Thanks all for participating
