Amanda Todd, from Vancouver, Canada, was found hanged in her home on October 10, just weeks after she uploaded a video to YouTube detailing her horrific treatment at the hands of cyber bullies. When she was just 12, a man in an internet chat room convinced her to flash her breasts, and a year later, he plastered a picture of the incident across Facebook.
Now in a vigilante move, Anonymous, the world's largest hacking group, has named the man allegedly responsible for the picture. The group claims that he is a 32-year-old from British Columbia, but MailOnline has chosen not to identify him for legal reasons.
As Todd's supporters set up Facebook pages warning the man to 'sleep with one eye open', the move by Anonymous sparks concerns over its abilities to create a 'trial by internet' -bypassing the justice system and casting guilt.
The pedophile should be charged with stalking, harassment and posting child porn.
The woman who attacked her at school should have been charged with assault.
I feel badly for this girl. As her parent, I’d be sitting in jail right now for all the butt I would have kicked but it sounds like she was in a one parent home with her father and then with her mother. I would wager there was very little, if any, parental supervision.
RIP Amanda. I’m sorry you felt so alone.
I advocate people doing something for kids in their neighborhood, it doesn't matter so much what it is or how much time you spend, just so that young folks know there's someone to reach out to who gives a damn.
For me, it brought back the Phoebe Prince case again to my mind, and that tore my guts out too.
Bye, Amanda. Sorry we weren't there.
