Any person with a normal sense of self and some social control would begin to ask themselves if they weren’t in fact the booger eaters others think they are when the Orlando Sentinel makes comment on their vicious and over the top online behavior. But not the Caylee Warriors, Justice for Caylee Superhero League or the various other internet e-baby loving individuals with a cross to bear. Here’s what John Cutter, online editor for the Orlando Sentinel had to say about them.
It’s been obvious for some time — to many of you and to us — that a small but vocal group of people interested in the Casey Anthony case simply can’t be civil. They are profane, mean-spirited, and spend more time attacking other readers than adding to the discussion.
This is not something I would be proud to own if I were one of the individuals or groups they are referring to. However, it has become the norm for these miscreants, and their Twitter and Facebook groups evidence the extreme levels of harassment and vigilantism that they will go to just to be part of “the” group and harass the Anthony family and those who speak out against them. Their behavior defines the term cyberbully. When someone disagrees with them, they go real life.
Q. Someone posted and says he can find out where I live just by reading my comment? Is that true?
A. Unless you post personal information — and you shouldn’t — there is nothing visible on our Web site that clues another person into who you are or where exactly you live or tells someone how to hack your account.
The extremes to which these groups have gone to in order to harass others is nothing less than reprehensible, and at times criminal. Take a look at the over 500+ comments at the Orlando Sentinel. They obviously were not phased nor shamed at all by the tone of Mr. Cutter’s response to their behavior. It says a lot about them. Too bad they are not sophisticated enough to get the drift.by
