Devil's Advocate

I will probably get in trouble for this, but you can call me a hero depending on the light that you put it in. Lori Drew, the miserable bitch who drove Megan Meier to suicide in St. Louis two years ago should be dismissed of her convictions. The federal prosecutors in this country have set a dangerous precedent in this case, that is far closer to you than you imagine. Number one, we don’t normally hold people criminally liable for another person’s suicide in this country. Number two; this conviction will produce severe distortions in the application of Internet contracts. Now anyone familiar with American contracts knows that any failure to abide by the terms will result in consequences, but they are always civil matters at worst. Should this conviction survive the Court of Appeals with its innovative premise, anyone in America will now be able to be held liable for any misrepresentation online. Guess that you better stay off those dating sites, really any with a membership contract. As for you bullies and pranksters, should anyone you know commit suicide, run and hide.
