Once again the internet being used for lies and deception leads to the death of someone. If you think using the internet for any type of catfish game is harmless, I ask you to read the article above.
If you pretend to be someone on the internet in any attempt to fool or trick someone, FOR WHAT EVER REASON, in my book you are no better than Kyle Dube, from the article above.
We need to stop this! We need to start using the internet to understand each other not to fool each other!
I wish I could say that this case will be the one to shock us in to better behavior or this blog will make the world change its ways or that any blog, movie, song, poem, book, etc. will actually get through to us as a whole and make us finally start treating each other better. I know though that my cry in one in a million that for some reason seem like whispers of secrets we ignore. Some day I hope our cries will come together creating a scream that will no longer be ignored. Until then please warn your loved ones, especially the younger ones who still might not get how deceitful people can be. Tell them not to trust anyone on the internet they do not already know. Look at each Facebook page as a fake each IM as a lie. Question anyone you do not know for sure who they are. And NEVER meet with someone you talked to online alone. Keep it public and bring friends.
What happened to this poor girl should never happen, yet it happens all the time. It’s time we stopped allowing it!
