Some really inattentive parents allowed their precious snowflake, Hannah Smith, aged 14, to join a social networking site called Ask.FM. The fragile dear hanged herself when someone poked fun at her. And this is how society weeds out the weak.
From the Independent here:
The father of a 14-year-old girl who killed herself after receiving a barrage of “online abuse” on the question-and-answer website Ask.fm has called for the site’s creator to be “done for manslaughter”.
Hannah Smith was discovered by her 16-year-old sister Jo, hanged at her home in Lutterworth, Leicestershire, on Friday. Her father, Dave Smith, initially announced the news of Facebook, saying: “Just to let all my friends know my youngest daughter took her own life last night.
“Rest in peace my baby and you will never be forgotten xxxxxxx.”
He later said he had discovered cruel taunts on her profile at Ask.fm, which allows users to anonymously send questions and comments to any other user.
One anonymous user repeatedly told Hannah that she should commit suicide, sending comments such as, “every1 will be happy if u died”.
Hannah’s father called for the site to be shut down, writing: “The fact that these people can be anonymous is wrong. The person that created this website should be done for manslaughter. Any parents that have children, please don’t let them go on this site.”
And he told the Daily Mirror: “How many more teenagers will kill themselves because of online abuse before something is done?
”These sick people are just able to go online and hide behind a mask of anonymity while they abuse vulnerable teenagers,” he said.
He should try being a better parent instead of crusading to shut down a stupid website. Hannah Smith was a weak minded mentally ill child who had no business operating a computer. And she wore too much makeup, which is another clue as to her sense of self esteem.
