Welp, it looks like the police report about that myspace suicide is now avaliable, though in a roundabout fashion. CNN unwittingly provided the info in their video piece about the story. Apparently those morons there never considered the fact that someone could just hit pause on the video, take a snapshot and then read the documents.



All of this is courtesy of Blue Merle who did the legwork.

Here's her transcript of what you can make out in the picture if you squint a little:

In reference to their daughter's suicide, Drew explaind she wanted to "just tell them" what she did to contribute to the Meier's daughter's suicide. She instigated and monitored a "my space" account(<---blurred) which was created for the sole purpose of communicating with Meier's daughter. Drew said she, with the help of temporary empoyee named "Ashley", constructed a profile of "good looking" male on "my space" in order to "find out what Megan (Meier's daughter) was saying on-line" about her daughter. Drew explained the communication between the fake male profile was [?aimed? illeg] at gaining Megan's confidence and finding out what Megan felt about her daughter and other people. Drew stated she, her daughter, and Ashley all typed, read, and monitored the communication between the fake male profile and Megan. Drew went on to say, the communication became "sexual for a thirteen year old." Drew stated she continued the fake male profile despite this development.

According to Drew "somehow" other "my space" users were able to access the fake male profile and Megan found out she had been duped. Drew stated she knew "arguments" had broken out between Megan and others on "my space". Drew felt this incident contributed to Megan's suicide, but she did not feel "as guilty" because at the funeral because she found out "Megan had tried to commit suicide before."

Drew explained the neighborhood had recently found out her involvement in Megan's suicide and her neighbord have become hostile to toward her and her family. Despite the recency of the suicide and several neighbors recommending she not confront the Meier family (especially on Thanksgiving), Meier stated she and her husband attempted to contact the Meier family three times, "banging on the door" although Mr Meier had already told them to leave.

Man. This woman is going to get her fucking head kicked in. I'm surprised there isn't a lynch mob outside her door at this very minute with torches and nooses non-racially offensive yet threatening paraphenalia.

The whole 'sexual' allusion is just repulsive and God only knows what that actually entailed. This woman is a real piece of work. I'm surprised the girl's dad didn't just respond to their banging on the door with a shotgun blast. If it were Texas, it'd likely be legal to boot. I absolutely love those castle laws. Every state should have them. It sorta figures that Jersey would be without one. Fucking hippie wankers in the state legislature.

Overall, I'm still a bit amivalent about this case and I'll tell you why. Reading about it, it's hard not to feel incredibly horrified and feel that Lori Drew is fucking scum. I'm just not sure what exactly is the facet which makes it so clear. I've told many people online to 'choke on a cock and die' or the equivalent over the years. If one of those soft-brained rejects had then gone and hanged themselves would I be culpable legally or morally for their death? If not, then what makes my suggestion that someone go fornicate themselves and expire less problematic than what Lori Drew did in this case.

Hmmm. Lets answer this with a poll. Let the Wheel of Morality turn, turn, turn. Tell us the lesson that we should learn.



What was the one or most major reason for Lori Drew being culpable for the death of Megan Meier?

She was an adult and knew Megan was a child
3(50.0%)
She initiated the contact with intent to deceive
1(16.7%)
She knew the girl had 'issues'
0(0.0%)
She's not culpable but is still a cunt
1(16.7%)
Other
1(16.7%)

If 'Other', please elaborate here
