Aug 22 – More questions in my head …

  1. As I read the news about the sexual pedophile from Airdrie Alberta that groomed young girls for sexual favours, I wonder if he was involved with Amanda?  Or did he know the group of on-line cappers that were talking to my daughter?
  2. How far did the RCMP investigate back in Dec 2010 onwards?
  3. When the names appeared on Facebook, did the RCMP go ask Facebook to check the accounts?
  4. Did the RCMP search Amanda’s computer and social media sites?
  5. Why did they say that instead of searching into the United States (which was a timely endeavour), it would be more beneficial to just take Amanda off social media?
  6. As for the Airdrie case, the FBI were the ones who were investigating after a complaint.  If the IP led into the U.S., then ….
  7. Who was  Alice???
  8. What about the kids who cyber-threatened and harassed Amanda online up to August 2012.  When Amanda asked the girl why she was still bullying her, the girl replied ‘Because I can’.  The wall posts were telling my daughter to try harder to kill herself.  And to drink bleach.   And pics of bleach in a ditch or a wine glass.  OMG .. like really.   If there parents knew.   Will there ever be any repercussions from that? Any restoractive actions?

As I read more and more stories, it gets me more p*ssed that kids are getting away with what they are saying and doing.  Is it like the speeder who never gets caught.  They are encouraged to do it again and again.   Freedom of speech is a gift, not an entitlement.   I certainly don’t buy the excuse ‘Oh, it was just a joke’.

Well hear this now, those words you thought were jokes, they can KILL!!  And they did.

    Sei que tudo isto é muito doloroso ,para Carol e as pessoas que mesmo sem conhecer Amanda aprenderam a ama-la .mas ficar remoendo o que aconteceu não vai ajudar ..Carol você tem feito muito por muitas crianças ,esta na hora também de fazer por você ore a Deus para que seu coração fique em paz e a alma de Amanda descanse ,hoje estas pessoas continuam falando mal de Amanda mas não podem mais atingi-la ..procure estar mais próxima de Deus ..Deus ira agir .E saiba que o mal que estas crianças fizeram voltara para elas ..porque a vida da voltas e o mal sempre retorna a casa daqueles que o faz .Eu oro por Amanda e por todas as crianças que se foram ..mas penso que precisamos cuidar das vitimas de buling ..porque os valentões já estão perdidos l tomarão do seu próprio veneno a vida tratará de puni-los se continuarem a ser assim .bjs

      Translation for Andria Drica
      I know all this is very painful for Carol and people without even knowing Amanda learned to love it. Brood but what happened will not help you .. Carol has done a lot for many children, this time also make by you pray to God that your heart be at peace and rest the soul of Amanda, now these people keep talking bad about Amanda but can no longer reach it .. try to be closer to God .. God will act. know that E evil that these children did come back to them .. because life’s twists and evil always returns home from those who do. I pray for Amanda and all the children who were .. but I think we need to take care of the victims of buling .. because the bullies are already lost l take your own medicine to treat life to punish them if they continue to be so. bjs

    It looks to me as if the RCMP did not do, or are not doing, their job properly and thoroughly. It should not be that difficult to track down the culprits, I hope they will persevere. All the people who played a role in Amanda’s death have to be punished!


  3. H.I.D. says:

    That was a “turning point” for Amanda after the Police came to her house.
    The fear, the anxiety, and depression that visit caused……. and being only 15 yrs old…………..
    no 15 yr old could ever be able to deal with all that.

    Again.. it’s my opinion that the police were negligent in both Retaehs and Amanda’s taking
    of thier own Lives.
    In Retaeh’s case,1’st complaint was made, Retaeh was still alive at the time, Police did NOTHING.
    With Amanda, the police should NOT have come to her house, in my opinion.
    She was only 15yrs old, and suffering from bullying/cyberbullying, and if the Police had
    any Brains in thier head…….. they would have called her mother. So Carol could
    gently take Amanda aside and explain to her what the police said on the phone.

    You are Forever Loved Amanda.
    Forever and Forever.


    • Hamsi says:

      Yes, I see what you mean….she must have felt as though SHE was the criminal, not the one who was wronged.

      I appreciate your engaging in this conversation with me.


  4. H.I.D. says:

    To Hamsi: “How hopeless Amanda must if felt”…………… You are soo right… it touched a nerve in me.
    In my opinion, the Police DID play a role in Amanda taking her Life.
    I’m talking about the day that the police came to Amanda’s house.
    Amanda told Everyone Herself what that did to her…… it’s in her video.
    Carol and I talked about Amanda last week when Carol came to my house to visit me.


    • Hamsi says:

      To H.I.D: I cannot even begin to imagine what a 15 year old must have gone through with the whole world arrayed against her like this. I don’t live in Canada, but those of you who do MUST pressure the RCMP to bring some people to book, even those among their rank and file who were negligent in pursuing this case.


  5. Hamsi says:

    I did not know unitl now that the police actually suggested taking Amanda off social media….that there would be cop out of this magnitude by custodians of the law is breathtaking! How hopeless Amanda must have felt when the very people who should have protected her abdicated in this spectacular fashion. Why is nobody holding the RCMP accountable ?


  6. merle48 says:

    “Will there ever be repercussions from that?” you asked. The repercussions will gain ground through their lifetimes if they ever recover the conscience God granted them! Taking “Amanda off social media” does not identify the source. It’s like saying, “Take two aspirin for your toothache, and you’ll feel better in a half hour….NO, get to the dentist, as they can identify the CAUSE…and eliminate it…then they will no longer NEED the aspirin which is a temporary fix! Law enforcement is inept in many cases where I reside also!


  7. H.I.D. says:

    There are no words to describe how horribly these kids treated Amanda. And furthermore, to make
    me completely sick to my stomach, is that they still posted hate messages after Amanda was gone.
    I think that these bully’s brains lack the capacity to understand what they are doing to others,
    and it makes me angry, it makes me sad, it makes me sick.

    To the girl who replied to Amanda……… “Because I Can”……….I wouldn’t want to be you.

    Society is so very corrupt. To Sammi, who got 9 bullets on an empty streetcar, and then tasered,
    someone filmed the whole thing, it’s on you tube.. now with enhanced audio and video.
    Huge Public Outcry. The cop is out on bail……. he was back home in time to have dinner
    with his family.


  8. Savetheworld says:

    Who are these kids get me their names and ill make sure their parents find out! Despicable! We need laws in place there is no other way! Right now we are all living in an uncivilized world . Things need to change starting yesterday. Those culprits will be caught mark my words! Sending you love xoxo ❤


  9. la Punisher says:

    Yes words really can kill and kid’s will continue to commit online murder until law enforcement puts their heads in high gear and does something about it, Amanda and children like her deserve justice but that will never happen as long as Canada has a corrupt national police force that goes around pumping 9 bullets into teenagers and than after their down hits the body with a taser, I mean, Like how corrupt is that??. ( crap like this is why nothing is getting done)
    The RCMP with their state of the art technology could solve this crime in a matter of hours, But they are to busy covering up their own corruption.. What a wasted pile of skin
