Megan Meier’s Story Just Beginning to be Heard
The MySpace Suicide Story Sparks Reactions of Outrage

Angry Commenters Want Justice for Meier Family and Megan

Many Parts of the Country Still Aren’t Aware

The “MySpace Suicide” reaction to the Megan Meier story has been outrage. Outrage on a lot of levels.

Outrage at the vicious Internet attack on a 13-year-old girl by parents of the girl’s erstwhile friend.

Outrage that the responsible adults have not been held accountable by the law.

Outrage that the only action taken has been a complaint filed by the parents who concocted this cruel hoax against the parents of the girl who committed suicide. They filed a complaint with local police against Megan’s parents.

The reason?

After finding out who was responsible for the creation of the fictitious MySpace account that led to their daughters suicide, Megan’s parents destroyed a foosball table they had been storing for the heartless adults.

Some of that outrage surfaced at the Orlando Sentinel:

I heard this on the MJ Morning Show this morning and had to share. This story is so heinous, disgusting…I don’t even know where to begin.

Any folks out there who are lawyers, law enforcement officers, or judges–can you shed some light? I’m looking for your input.

Some of it surfaced at the home of the original reporter, Steve Pokin, of the story in suburban St.Louis. Readers Respond in Force to Story on MySpace Suicide

Some of you have asked your children to read the story and have requested/demanded to look at their MySpace pages.Of course, there has been outrage over the fact that Josh Evans – a 16-year-old who never existed – was created not by a teen, but by an adult. That anger is reflected in the comments posted on the Journal’s Web sites.

The comments on both pieces were mostly of the “WTF” variety.

DBKP, because we were the first in the blogosphere to pick up on this story, was contacted early yesterday morning by FoxNews from New York.
