I Need A Smart Person

I want to know what you all think about the case of the girl who killed herself after being stalked by a prankster.

If you haven't heard the story here's the gist of it. Megan began chatting on myspace with a boy named Josh Evans. After a few weeks of flirting, Josh "suddenly turned mean," says her mother. He called Megan names and they began trading insults.

His last message said, "The world would be a better place without you.”

Sobbing, Megan ran into her bedroom closet. Her mother found her there, hanging from a belt. She was 13.

Six weeks after Megan’s death, her parents learned that Josh Evans never existed. He was an online character created by Lori Drew, then 47, who lived four houses down the street.

The prosecutors and police say they can't charge the lady with anything. A spokesman said that what Ms. Drew did “might’ve been rude, it might’ve been immature, but it wasn’t illegal.”

I think I have a defense for the parents of the girl, but I want to know what you think?

I think that I am outraged that someone can stoop so low as to deliberatly belittle a child.

Why can't the woman be charged with creating a false identity with the intention of causing a minor harm? That's what she did

Did the police look hard enough for a law to pin on the woman

God, I'm fuming.....
