This one is so heart wrenching as a parent that I’m at a loss for words.
Megan Meier was a 13-year-old girl who had some problems but things were turning around for her. That was until she got a friend request from someone claiming to be, in Megan’s words, a hot 16-year-old boy by the name of Josh.
The two remained friends on MySpace for a while then all of a sudden Josh started sending disparaging messages to Megan. Comments like “I don’t know if I want to be friends with you anymore because I’ve heard that you are not very nice to your friends.”
Then MySpace bulletins started circulating about her that said things like “Megan Meier is a slut. Megan Meier is fat.”
It bothered her so much that Megan Meier took her own life.
That’s not even the worst part.
Worst Part #1: Josh never existed and this was all done by adults.
Worst Part #2: No criminal charges are being filed.
As usual I’m not paying justice to the story. Please go and read the entire article.
And to the people who did this to Megan Meier I’ll just leave you with that I hope you rot in hell.
Thanks to Belch for the link.
Now I’m going to go listen to song Danny Boy to cheer myself up.
