Child charged because another child kills himself

Post by class316 » April 7th, 2017, 7:20 pm

Police say criminal charges have been brought against a juvenile in Michigan after an 11-year-old boy killed himself following what the boy’s mother claims was a social media prank.

Authorities in Marquette, Michigan, confirm that an unidentified juvenile is charged with malicious use of telecommunication services and using a computer to commit a crime after the boy was found unresponsive on March 14.

Marquette police declined to provide many details or identify either child involved, because of their age, saying only that the boy who died was “engaged in communication with another juvenile via social media prior to the incident.”
Goss claims that the child who is charged is a girl that Tysen knew, who faked her own suicide on social media as a prank soon before her son killed himself.

Goss says the accused juvenile was Tysen’s girlfriend.

She says the girl allegedly faked her own suicide using various social media sites and also allegedly used social media accounts of her friends to circulate the rumor of her suicide.

An hour into her prank, Tysen hanged himself, his mom claims. Goss says she found him on March 14 and that emergency response teams managed to resuscitate him. Machines kept Tysen alive for weeks after he was found, but he died in a hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Tuesday.

Is it really right to charge someone for a Prank? Pretty sure the girl did not intend for the boy to kill himself. She sure as hell didn't make him do it. She arranged what she thought would be a funny prank that lead to the suicide. Scary thought that you can be a child making a joke online and have criminal charges against you.

Hence why she was not charged with making him kill himself. From your own post:
Authorities in Marquette, Michigan, confirm that an unidentified juvenile is charged with malicious use of telecommunication services and using a computer to commit a crime after the boy was found unresponsive on March 14.
Kid was basically charged with exactly what they did - doing a malicious prank using a computer. Not murder, not manslaughter, not forcing a suicide, etc. Do you read your own posts?

Between the Subway Jared defense, the Nazi sympathy, etc. it's like you search the internet for terrible people, then say "let me post this on Marked Out and defend that..."
