I was (am) angry, very, very, angry- the profile is “private” so at this time I have no way of identifying the coward who owns the page or wrote the post-that may be a blessing in disguise that I don’t know who it is. I made a police report last night, and the police also reported the page to FaceBook. This morning, -I went and spoke to the school officials and The Board of Education. Apparently due to the recent suicides, etc FB has a partnership with school officials that will provide them the IP address of the individual(s) that create/post to these type of pages. CYBER BULLYING IS A CRIME- and Howard County school officials is taking this very seriously! I must admit that in the beginning I didn’t feel the urgency from them- but I let them know… If I don’t have an update by COD today-all the media up/down I-95 will be contacted at 6am tomorrow- my FB friends started providing me with direct media contacts and my boss ( thank you) provided me with media contacts he have on speed dial! The legal team at work was drawing up the cease letter ( for FB) and composing my statement for the media, and a press release. The school has called me 3x’s since 9am- they know I’m serious ( I had my poker face on, and my “take your ass to court suit ” ). Once I left the building- I sat in my truck and cried. I called one of my besties ( Antinette) and let it go. Its very hurtful. Its really hard being a kid these days, and its harder being a parent. I’ve instilled in my daughter that looks don’t mean a thing- its your character that will get you far in life. Last night and today- I realized that I have a good circle around me. People that I’ve never met was calling/texting me offering me support. I love ya’ll – I know my friends and fam ride for me and i also heard about the bail fund…lol..lol..( I was prepared.. I’d left my debit card with my daughter in our secret place- I was PREPARED to catch a case- still am prepared-truth be told).
