Sinister threats on Bebo following murder of teen

SLUGGER's Belfast Gonzo reports on quite sinister going-ons on Bebo in relation to the awful and tragic murder 15-year-old Michael McIlveen in Ballymena.

There are links to the people's bebo home pages in the Slugger post which will chill you.

I did mention cyber-bullying in my previous posts on Bebo and how easy the site can facilitate this, a fact that seems to be played down a lot by some of the other sites who linked to my posts extolling it's virtues.

The links provided by Slugger are plain frightening and so full of hate and demonstrate Bebo at its worst.

I've just read Sluggers post and clocked on the links to the Bebo posts, for shame for shame, what have 'we' done to those children? The blatant sectarianism is shocking, the threats of retribution, the images, the language, it's all too much. I know most of it is posturing but jesus christ almighty, will this never end? another generation as bitter and twisted as the last, I really thought there was progress in that area but it seems not, I feel sick now. That poor child, the poor family, god it's too fucking much.

Boliath the same words come tumbling from my mouth. Redmum this is a frightening time but maybe more than ever parental responsibility is paramount. Maybe it is time that we call the shots fully. My own daughter, who is five,only five, looked at me in disdain last night and said "whatever." After dealing with the situation I sat down trully disturbed. I also cried because she refused to wear a pair of frilly ankle socks her grandma had bought her. She is becoming sexuallised at 5. Action needs taken

I think it is a bit unfair to blame Bebo. Bebo is a conduit. It facilitates whatever's there. In this case, what is there is nasty. But look at what's been going on in Northern Ireland for all those years. We now have the children of the children of the baracades. We have parents who were robbed of their childhood and now they are responsible for bringing up the next generation. It must go badly. There is no magic wand to undo the damage, the fracture, the awful trauma which must haunt the children. We reap now what we have sown. It'll be a long time yet and so much tough hard work to emerge with a generation less damaged, a well-emough generation.
Adults need to take responsibility for their charges. Boundaries are needed, especially for children aged 5. I think.

I'm with Boliath, I had thought that sectarianism among younger people wasn't so prolific anymore but it appears to be, judging by that site.

If it's as bad as those comments make it out to be then that's shocking. Hopefully though, that's just a small minority.

I thought children these days were much more tolerant and accepting than even say my generation was. God. The language was terrifying and they all seem so young!

I can't imagine what it was like to live in Belfast during the 70s and 80s, or even today, as it must have been so hard and frightening at times, but I had thought that things had calmed down, that there was a much more peaceful road being followed by all sides? I feel very naive now, I really thought things were changing for the better and that people's quality of life had improved. It shows how little I know about the situation though...I hope I'm wrong though, I hope the Bebo posters are only a small minority.

What scares me is that if the people named on Bebo are the ones who carried out the horrific attack, the case against them is now prejudiced and their lawyers will argue that they cannot recieve a full and fair trial. The case can then be thrown out of court because of what some prepubescent kids have said.

It's a terrifying thought that his killers could escape justice because of public accusations.

If they do, Bebo will get the blame for not acting sooner in removing the offending articles, then the police will get accused for not contacting Bebo, then there will be a spiral of claim and counter claim.

Jimmy Porter,
I think it'll be alright because it would be easy to find a jury who have no experience of Bebo. There should be no prejudicing of a fair trial. Bebo's widely read among people who are below the age for jury service, I think.
