Man who drove girl, 15, to suicide by spreading topless photos of her on Facebook’ is arrested


This sad story may at last have some justice:

An arrest has been made in the Netherlands in the case of a Canadian teenager who was blackmailed to expose herself in front of a webcam, Canadian police confirmed on Thursday.

The 15-year-old girl, Amanda Todd, later committed suicide after detailing her harassment on a YouTube video watched by millions around the world.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Insp. Paulette Freill said a suspect has been arrested in the Netherlands and charged with extortion, luring and criminal harassment and possession of child pornography for the purpose of distribution.

Police did not release the name of the 35-year-old man and declined to release specifics of the case but said there were other victims in Canada and internationally.

There is clearly a lot of blame to go around — why weren’t the parents keeping track of their daughter’s online activities, and why was she exposing herself in the first place, to name but two reasons — but the scumbag who is being charged with starting it all is about to get his just desserts.

The article linked above indicates he has pulled this stunt before, and caused a great deal of harm to other people. Getting him off the streets is an enormous benefit to society, and especially to those who would have targeted in the future.

On this Easter weekend, may we pray for the soul of the young lady, her family and friends, and for the man who led her down this path.
