what if this Kody Maxson guy is the wrong person though? that's the thing about vigilante justice... it's much more common for a completely innocent person to be mistakenly targeted

I couldn't agree more.

it might be a little more dramatic because she posted a youtube video before it happened, but i still don't believe if the girl was less attractive the situation would have garnered the same attention?

recently in australia this woman was taken, raped and murdered in melbourne.

these kinds of things aren't that common here, but when they happen they usually make the news for a week and then the story dies down. but this was the march in reaction to the news.

So you're saying that you found this 15-year-old girl attractive?

Pretty sad what happened. She totally could have avoided it if she didn't go on fricking chatroulette in the first place. But then again, young girls are naive. Even after she flashed, if she just got off facebook, then none of this would've happened, and I guarantee she would be a whole lot happier since.

I think their idea was that even if he wasn't the guy, he was still another Pedo deserving of being put on the public for being a scum. One of the videos (taken down now) showed this Kody as being a "top 10 blackmailer". If he's the guy that did this, he deserves it. If he's not? he still deserves it for blackmailing other teenage girls, I wouldn't feel an ounce of sympathy for him.
