A willful ignorance done by the legal system. Tragically, it just reinforces the belief in a bully/stalker's mindset that they won't be held accountable for their cruelty. Narey and Mulveyhill are being required to work with disadvantaged youth -- rather like sending Charles Manson to counsel the mentally troubled.

What to expect? A triumphant return to narcissism, whining about their sentences (meager though they may be), booze and drug binging, screwing and manipulating. Ms. Prince's family won't be receiving probation from the emotional distress and victim blaming that they have had to deal with, thanks to these ghouls and their cronies.

Special nail in the coffin of victim blaming awards go to Gus Sayer and South Hadley School District, the families and friends of the bullies/stalkers, who repeatedly mudslinged the victim's character.

'Sympathy for the stalkers' award goes to Emily Bazelon of Slate, whose articles reflected an uninhibited bully/stalker apologia, unethically discussed Ms. Prince's alleged mental issues (while carefully ignoring that of the stalkers), and whose biased reporting undoubtedly led to less public empathy towards the true victim in this crime. All of the above would never think to be ashamed of yourselves, but you most definitely should be publicly shamed.

There needs to be a vigilante group get these
little bastards sorry asses and tar and feather them.
That's more on the line of equality for what they
did. They caused the MURDER of a young girl.
What happened to justice in America?
It's a joke. A bad joke.
I wish they'd turn them over to me.

I hope the parents of these kids realize that they have raised very spoiled, entitled kids.

Stop living under a rock and realize you need to teach your kids that bullying doesn't make them popular and stop believing everything they tell you.

As far as the kids go, their lives are ruined, they will never go to school, get a decent job or find someone that wants to be their partner, never mind the guilt they will live with once they mature.
i agree

you all share the blame...

social networking sites...

technology....

how you shove sex at kids for 'marketing' reasons....

you all played a part in it. why blame the kids that was raised and brought up in our society?

why not blame the parents of the kids who bullied?

why not blame the grandparents who raised the kids parents?

funny how you all think that you are innocent...even the victim may be a total stranger...

you all played a part in her death.

How can they be called murderers? They didn't murder anyone. The mental state of the suicide girl is at fault here.

My kids have been bullied and been accused of being bullies. A lot of it is in the eyes of the beholder and social networking makes it more complicated.If your kids a victim, call the parents first.Be willing to listen. Sometimes there are two sides to the story. If the situation is reversed, don't immediately think 'not my little darling'. I told my kids that they don't have to be friends with everyone , but they WILL NOT destroy another child's happiness. Nor should anyone else do that to them. All involved are at least somewhat friendly now. I admit that it's hard to know what's going on with older kids. It helps that they go to small schools, and the parents were reasonable,and I think boys don't hold grudges as long.
