Has anybody had this crop up on their facebook or anything else? Here's a link: jolene doherty bully in scotland - YouTube I haven't watched it myself but the wife was talking about it this morning and I've noticed a lot of outrage floating about on my own facebook feed about it. Seemingly some young lassy has a go at a guy with special needs, punching him and abusing him and so forth. It seems another incidence of trial-by-mob. The evidence is there and, yeah, it's ******* shocking behaviour but it really bothers me when the 'online audience' gets on it's high horse and starts braying for blood. Some of the comments in the various status' about the video are pretty shocking for themselves. I'm not condoning bullying or behaviour like this, it just really irks me when society starts demanding a sacrifice to appease their outrage. Strathclyde Police are dealing with it now AFAIK which has caused FURTHER outrage. Their facebook page has been swept by the outraged demanding the arrest and beheading of the lassy (her name is Jolene Doherty according to the vid) immediately. This morning some young guy came on and talked about how outrageous it is that the police are handling this case and taking it seriously but when he was a kid and being bullied they ignored his reports and blah blah. I'd like the lassy to learn her lesson - some swift, simple punishment would be ideal - but I wish the facebook folk going off their nut would give it a rest. Just wondering if it's spread beyond Scotland/Glasgow and others have seen it.
