    You said it was like . . . , and then you went on to describe a scenario that did NOT happen. So no, it did NOT happen like that. She did send him texts. She was miles away. Sure, she could have done a lot of things, but since when is it the LAW to show compassion?

    I really think she wanted the sympathy after he died

    All the attention would shift to her as she told everyone how much she tried to save him

    Like one of those women who kill their own kids to get the attention as a grieving mother

    Several of the young adults who knew her said the same thing. That she was that sort of person.

    She didn't cause it, but she definitely contributed to it. I hope she gets some serious prison time.

    This is what I posted, please show me where I described a scenario that did not happen.

    "It is what happened. He had doubts, had gotten out of the carbon monoxide filled car. She continued to text him to get back in the car. He expressed worry about his parents and she told him that SHE would take care of them. Did that mean she was going to kill them too?

    She has no conscience, no heart, no soul. She could have called 911, she could have called his parents, she continued to push him to kill himself."

    It is heartbreaking that you believe there needs to be a law to FORCE YOU to save someone's life. I feel so sorry for you and those around you.

    Since that is what you need, here you are: DUTY TO RESCUE
    Duty to rescue - Wikipedia

    I hope and pray that she gets the maximum sentence allowed by law.

    If other people believe as you, it is no wonder that we're in such deep trouble.

    You're a Progressive, aren't you?

    I think you are stretching to make a weak argument. But that's okay.

    If this woman had been in the same room with him and goaded him until he killed himself, there would be no issue here. The fact she did it electronically is the technical issue to be addressed. The law is catching up with the technology.

    Maybe it should be. Except this isn't a lack of compassion, this was open goading a man she knew was mentally ill.

    Looks like ChrisL has thrown in the towel.

    If she had been in the same room, nobody would have known how it went down

    She was stupid enough to text what she was doing and left a record

    I still say the punishment is too harsh and inappropriate, especially when you consider other crimes and their respective punishments. She didn't kill or physically harm anyone. She's a cold hearted jerk, but so are a lot of other people. That's life. You are going to run across people who are no good and even some who want to do you harm (in one way or another). It is up to you to be responsible for your own self. If a person commits suicide, then she or he took his or her own life for whatever reasons. Also, if you had read about the phone conversations, there were times in the past when the girl did try to support him and tried to convince him to get some help, but he refused. I agree that her words were harsh and that perhaps in some small way she contributed to his suicide but he was the one who had the decision to make.

    If he was a 13-year-old child and she was his mother or something, then that would make this more of a crime fitting for involuntary manslaughter. This was just a friend of his, and someone that he didn't live with nor was he forced to associate with her. In fact, he texted and kept in contact with her.
