Trolls Beware!!

Quote:
Sean Duffy, 25, wrote abusive messages on Facebook tribute pages and even uploaded videos to YouTube taunting the youths and their families, as part of the practice known as “trolling”.

Among his victims was Natasha MacBryde, 15, who died when hit by a passenger train near her home in Bromsgrove, Worcs, on Feb 14. The next day Duffy posted comments including “I fell asleep on the track lolz” on the Facebook tribute page created by her brother James, 17.

Five days after her death he created a YouTube video called “Tasha the Tank Engine” featuring Natasha’s face on a picture of Thomas the Tank Engine.

Duffy also created a Facebook page entitled “RIP Lauren Drew” after the

14 year-old died from an epilepsy attack at her home in Gloucester in January.

Duffy then posted images captioned “Lauren’s epifit” and “Lauren’s rotting body” and created a YouTube video with a picture of a coffin saying “Happy Mothers Day”. He signed off the video by writing: “I don’t know why you’re all crying down there, it’s soaking here in hell.”

One of Lauren’s friends was unfairly blamed for the hate campaign and took a drug overdose.

Duffy also posted abusive messages online about Hayley Bates, 16, from Staffordshire, who was killed in a car crash last September, and Jordan Cooper, 14, from Washington, Tyne and Wear, who was stabbed to death by his uncle in February.

Duffy, from Reading, who did not know any of his victims, pleaded guilty to two counts of sending malicious communications relating to Natasha at an earlier hearing. Yesterday he asked for three other cases of Facebook trolling to be taken into consideration at Reading magistrates’ court. Paul Warren, the chairman of the bench, sentenced him to 18 weeks for each of the offences to run concurrently, the maximum sentence.

He said: “You have caused untold distress to already grieving friends and family. The offences are so serious only a custodial sentence could be justified.”

The court heard that Duffy, who is unemployed, suffered from Asperger’s syndrome and lived a “miserable existence” drinking alcohol alone at home.

Duffy was also given a five year Anti-Social Behaviour Order and was prohibited from accessing websites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Bebo and Myspace.

Natasha killed herself after receiving a message from an anonymous bully on the social networking website Formspring. Her father, Andrew MacBryde, said: “He has now been exposed for what he is: a very twisted individual. I hope his sentencing shows other trollers that they are not anonymous and they will be caught if they continue their vile games.”

Mark Drew, Lauren’s father, said: “He caused devastation to us and other families, for so many people. It hurts but he sits behind a computer with no feeling.”

Glad this little shit can't hide behind the internet and do as he pleases. No if Westboro would just get a taste of this. Hopefully courts around the world will take notice of this and follow suit.

Wow, I bet this douche never thought in a million years he would face any kind of consequences for being an internet POS. Would have been great to see the look on his face when he found out he was gonna have to sit his happy ass in jail for this.

You know that look you get when youre accidently in a gay sex club and you've been dosed and you realize you're going unconscious.. I imagine its like that.

The guy's a douche bag, deserves what's coming for him, but honestly, people should take the internet less serious. I don't want to sound offensive, 'cause I feel sorry for the girl and her family/friends, but killing yourself because an anonymous person on the internet offended you is just dumb. If you're that vulnerable of a person, why do you use the internet in the first place? It's not like you don't know what you're signing up for.

What a sad and pathetic life to lead. I think it's time that people who do this kinda sick crap get punishment like this...there is so much exploitation of the fact some can remain anonymous online. Those that cause pain to those in grieving, on this scale, deserve short-term jail sentences as it is essentially abuse.

This is not trolling but being a dick, look up the true definition of trolling.

There is a "true" definition?
