Well, it has been reported Katelyn is very aware of how serious this is. Her family gets it now too. That is why she was released to her parent's custody. Guadalupe's family continues to deny involvement and her parents look very foolish on television. There is no hacker, they just don't want to accept she wrote that awful post. That is why she is still in custody. This whole thing is just an awful mess. You've got this John Borgen showing up on television making himself look like a celebrity. His parents need to put an end to that already. A beautiful girl is dead!! This whole thing is just sad for everyone involved.

What do u want robby boy/girl more people in jail? You do know don't u that the u.s. has 5 percent of the worlds population yet 25 percent of the entire incarcerated population on the entire planet is in the u.s.! That means robby boy/girl that you are more likely to be put in a cage in your free country than you are anywhere else in the entire world. Look it up doofy. But you watch all the propaganda cop tv shows and brainwash yourself with the they are heroes mentality and you can't even see the prison nation/police state your living in. Be careful robby boy/girl or I will tell someone I was thinking of you and then hurt myself and tell them you caused me to do it because I was thinking of you. Watch out! I got the game down just where they want it.
Because they are in Florida, going to jail vs having probation is a color thing.

Guadalupe Shaw's step mother was arrested Friday and charged with 2 counts of child abuse and 4 counts of child neglect. There is a video on theledger.com which gives the details. She beat two of her step-kids and then it was posted on facebook by one of her other step-kids.

The whole family should be put out to sea in a rickety boat, where they can behave like the animalistic barbarians they are and bother no one but each other. Don't know why the Department of Public Welfare hasn't been involved with this bunch already, because parenting is clearly not happening in this household.

Just wait until the lawyers show up, you'll then think all of Polk County are animals. The place is hell. Preachers are racist and after caught by Christian authorities, they are slapped in the wrist. Why can't we border this area and declare it a separate country?

You have no statistics to back that up. That line is the line from a con, from a racket. This game has been running since the 1960s and blacks want it to run until they have a power base so powerful they run the country. If you don't want people with brown skin going to jail then why do you vote for a leader who is supposed to uphold the laws but instead let's the country fill up from meheeco.

You have to be kidding me. I am sure you are a member of that failed court system posting as if you are in a foreign country. Isn't it funny how all that speak on behalf of the wonderful Florida court system have invisible locations claiming they are in Europe. Have you ever posted as David Stein? What is next you will post under some Florida locations, pretending to be other people that LOVE that system.

Maybe my parents should have talked to me a little more and I would have been able to tell fantasy from reality. You will all see how terrorized I am. My mother will by milk again. Oh yes she will than you will all see.
this has also been copied and pasted, I suspect someone but regardless, the trailer trash have been arrested.

I thought when I first read this article it could NOT get any worse. I was wrong. When I read that the mother of this little bitc-h posted violent gory video's of a boy being beat it got more incrediable!

Sheriff Grady Judd said "the apple does not fall far from the tree" and boy was he right! Its obvious at least one of these two little twits came from a violent messed-up dysfunctional family, probably both, and then the father has the nerve to say to a reporter "my daughter is a good little girl, she would never do that" yeah a real angel, an angel from hell more like it. This is so heartbreaking and sad and could of been prevented, but with the parents of the little monsters contributing to it well that is just criminal!!

I saw a picture of the mother, the short fat miss piggy type, she really has the nerve to make fun of others the way she looks, like a ugly little fat toad, those girls were probably jealous of the little deceased girl because she was pretty and they were not. Poor little girl, may she rest with the angels in heaven where she will never be bothered or crucified again, and may the two girls pay for what they did, harsh punishment I hope. This is insane what they did. Try them as adults and that step-mom should rot in jail!!

I know who copied and pasted. It's a girl named Christy Dillan who used to go to the college in Jonesboro. I thought she moved to Iowa though.

Member of the Florida court system please. Jaci should call it as she sees, Jaci will donate towards this loser's section 8 for the rest of her life. The ugly souled bitch will flaunt her conviction like a badge of honor for all her failed job interview attempts. She hit the I'll never go back to work lottery. Relax this poor excuse for a human being will cop a plead bargain, not even see a day of jail, and ca ching collect off the tax payers for the rest of her life. She will receive cash from the government at a higher priority than our beloved troops. Jaci may have to work until she is 70 years old. The ugly Toad will have time to be an activist and get on the teabaggers party bus, to continue a war against America's working class. So on this Sunday afternoon you should respect Jaci's right to call this burden on the tax payers a ugly toad. May I chime in with mentioning she has a very ugly soul that ugly toad. P.S Relax white women don't go to jail in Florida, at least not for over a month. She'll go out and shop lift and just tally up more probation time, and losers like you will act like that means something.

I believe you are wrong because not only did that person not move to Iowa that person works for workforce services, in other words, the government in an office in Paragould, Arkansas, as a manager. I believe you have committed slander and against someone who has the resources to sue you and I bet you are not in the UK. Also, you spelled the name wrong and your posts smell. I think you will be hearing back. I will assure you that this person will be advised of your comment. I certainly hope you do not reside in Arkansas where we also have a law about cyber activities of your nature. If you posted something of this sort, You are up a creek with a lot of cattle. MOOOOOO

Great Britain takes cyber bullying very seriously. There are four laws regarding Cyberbullying:

The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994

The Protection From Harassment Act of 1997

The Malicious Communications Act of 1998

The Communications Act of 2003

In short: When it comes to the United Kingdom, bullying is not tolerated as much as it is in the United States. There are much stricter laws in place to prevent cases of both bullying and cyber bullying. When it comes to anti-bullying law and schools, the United Kingdom sets the standards for the rest of the world.

In short, there it is.

Thanks Robert, you are right I probably will have to work till I am seventy years old while this family lives off food stamps, welfare and probably, and this is not right a "book deal" they might actually make money of poor innocent Rebecca's death. How sad!!

Also another point I forgot in my last post is I cannot BELIEVE this step-monster loser is ONLY four years older than her step-daughter, that explains a lot does it not?? two immature idiots they are both.

The father must be in his late thirties to mid forties judging by his picture, why in the hell did he marry a teenager? she must of been seventeen when he married her, that is really MESSED UP man, he marries a teenager and has teen daughters, whats up with that? I hate to think about it. I mean a mother only four years older than you? The father should have his head examined! Sad bad and pathetic! the whole situation. Poor Rebecca, my condolences and prayers to her entire family, how sorry I am, may you find peace and may the monsters find punishment!

Thank you Lefty for defending me. "Not Jaci" is NOT me!! I am just Jaci! I do not understand why he or she is posting that way, very strange, I live in FL not the UK and I wish he would find another user name. He should pray for Rebecca's family and not try to stir up trouble on the forum, a little girl is dead and that is what the focus is. May she sleep with the angels.

I knew it was not you and the poster is trying unsuccessfully to mask their IP address. It was ironic that we had a poster allegedly from the UK, the country with the strongest cyber bulling laws in the world which showed a great deal of ignorance. Then regarding the copying and pasting of comments from one city to another, that poster accused someone who in fact is a government official, and who in fact is a mandated reporter of abuse and neglect, and who can contact the state police with one phone call. In Arkansas this possibly could be a crime. I know of a former licensed nurse in this state who did accuse a man of a crime when he had committed no crime. She is no longer employed at her former employer and she is no longer a nurse. I doubt we will be hearing from that poster again. Since this poster accused someone in Arkansas I bet they are located in or around this area. I would like for this poster to make another such post because it would make it easier to get logs, records and obtain the true identity of the poster. The person accused of copying and pasting this material will want to know. As I promised that person is aware and not happy.

Agreed. Rebecca's parents should sue the school system, the parents of the two hermaphrodites that bullied her to suicide and anybody and everybody else that had anything to do with this. I know money doesn't replace a child lost, but everybody involved should be made to pay and I hope they file lawsuits against all of them. Not at all sure about John Borgen, the boyfriend in this ugly little love triangle, either. He's acting all indignant now, but he's not as innocent as he's making himself out to be, as far as I'm concerned. He knew that troglodyte, Guadalupe, was harassing, stalking, threatening and bullying the girl -- how could he not?? It went on for a year! He didn't go to anybody to report on what was being done to Rebecca, nor did he lift a finger to stop any of it -- or call his mongrel dog off. So I don't put much stock in his self-righteousness now; I think he's about as much of a fake as his girlfriend is. I hope, like Casey Anthony, this trio of ne'er-do-wells never has a moment of peace or normalcy again. I hope they're stalked and looked down on as the evil brats they are til they're old, old men and women. They deserve the disgust and distain of every decent breathing human being.
It is easy to sue, but hard to collect money from those who just may not have anything but an old trailer. One avenue where it might be possible is the ISP or communications provider used by the bullies. When this happens, determine what ISP or communications provider the offender is using, contact them and explain that their network and facilities are being used for unlawful purposes, make sure you have a record, then if they fail to act, they have a liability. Actually I did that one time. I was getting hang up calls in the middle of the night. I hired a Private Investigator who had retired from AT&T, cost me a little money, but anyway, I found out their provider was one of the large ISP and Telephone providers in the U.S. They were contacted and the offender got a letter and got cut off. This is a complicated approach but it works. The offender in my case went through great lengths to hide their identity and they were actually forwarding their calls at a distant town as well as spoofing their caller ID. In the end though I found that no matter what they done, with diligence, telephone companies and ISP's have some great investigators and I met one who took care of a problem. By the way, even though someone may spoof caller ID in many cases this is a criminal act and the true identity of the caller was still found out.
