Amanda Todd: Bullied Teen's Online Memorial Pages Trashed By Haters

by at . Comments

Even after the death of Canadian teen Amanda Todd, whose suicide is being blamed largely on bullying, hateful messages are appearing on online memorial pages.

Messages poking fun at her death and making Todd out to be a villain are followed by reactions from the online community, shaming those bashing her.

Amanda Todd, 15, was found dead in her home Wednesday.

Officials believe she killed herself, and five weeks prior to her death, Todd posted a video (above) sharing that she’d been bullied and attempted suicide once before.

Now, two “R.I.P. Amanda Todd” Facebook pages, which combined had nearly one million likes as of Saturday night, are filled with comments, photos, videos.

Some mourn the loss of the teen, but others had a darker tone.

One picture shows the silhouette of a female body hanging dead with the mocking caption: “Todding.” Other posted a photo allegedly of Amanda Todd topless.

Other doctored photos mock the deceased British Columbian.

“You want to bully. Go for it - but the RCMP has set up an account for information on people who continue to bully her and it will be my pleasure to report you,” responded a Facebook user.

RCMP Sergeant Peter Thiessen says police are aware of the situation.

“It’s really a matter of those who are involved in it to realize the impact of what they are doing and that they are bordering on criminal acts,” said Thiessen.

“If we get that type of evidence then we would be quick to lay a charge,”

No charges have been laid regarding the bullying of Todd, in large part because it is very complicated to identify when comments become criminal, Thiessen said:

“We are looking at what transpired in regards to Amanda, what transpired on social media, what transpired face to face, who may have had contact with her in that regard, and whether there’s evidence to support any sort of criminal charge to any person or persons who may have had an impact in the type of decision Amanda made.”

“I don’t know that I’m in a position to drill down into those details, but there are a number of areas in the criminal code, where charges can be laid, without getting into what those areas would be, and speculating on that. It’s a matter of accumulating the appropriate evidence to support the appropriate charge.”

What do you think? Should Amanda Todd's bullies face criminal charges?

Not only should the bullies face charges, the PARENTS of the bullies should be reprimanded for failing to teach their children how to be adults. They are just as culpable as the kids are. And what about the teachers or adults in positions of authority that allowed this to take place? I remember being bullied. It doesn't matter how many adults you tell, they always turn a blind eye.

People kill themselves every day. All of the sudden some young, middle class whore does it and the world bawws. Why should we all of the sudden care and be respectful to someone who did it for the wrong reasons? She made shitty choices and when people called her out on it, she made another shitty choice. End of story.

YOU, sir, are no better than an animal. I'm sure you've never made a shitty choice in your life (we'll over look the shitty choice you made when you posted this muck) and you have every right to sit in judgment. The point is not the suicide, the point is that PEOPLE LIKE YOU are so fucking twisted and cruel that you ENJOY inflicting harm upon others. There's no better definition of mentally unstable. Does your life really suck so much that you have to make the lives of others suck to experience any joy? I feel sorry for you.

Call her out on it! Why is it their place to call her out on it? What makes them feel so good about being cruel to someone to the point of suicide? Let me tell you why it is a big deal! Because ignorant people like you should not be allowed to make anyone feel like they are worthless! You are a bully, whats wrong with you?

Has everyone gone crazy? This girl admitted that she did very bad things on several occasions (to YouTube, mind you, Not her parents or everyone that could help) and she continued to act out of line. This case is a prime example of two things:
1) social Darwinism, and
2) the destructive power of social media.
Anyone who makes hurtful comments is ostracized (hello hypocrites!) while we blatantly ignore Amanda's wrongdoing because... Because she Killed herself?
The internet is Not serious business.

Shes the attention whore? Think of all those bullies. I bet they were popular in school, I bet they slept around. People do make mistakes hon. It's common. And as Tumper from Babbie says "If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all." Or in my word "If it's not nice shut the fuck up, grow a pair of balls, and get over yourself"

To be honest, I really do not understand why people believe that bullies should face criminal charges if somebody decides to commit suicide. Many people are bullied a lot worse than she was, but they have a greater mental strength and therefore do not kill themselves, and so their bullies never face trial, because nobody hears about it. This girl, Amanda Todd is only being spoken about because she died. If she hadn't killed herself, nobody would care right now. But oh no, she decided, of her own free will, to kill herself. Those bastards who made her oh so very sad should be punished becase of what she decided to do? I don't think so...

oh shut up bich what do u know about pain and feeling hurt and feeling like nobody cares about you maybe nobody showed that to amanda maybe the people who were actually strong enough to not kill themselves was shown love so dont come on here and judge somebody that you have never met and have no idea whats been going on in her life i say if you have nothing better to say then dont say anything at all and go find something better to do and i personally think those people should face trail i could care less if what she did was wrong but she didnt know any better at a young age such as 12
