Culprit in Amanda Todd Case Identified by Anonymous

The mindboggling event of teen suicide has reached another weird position as the notorious internet hacking and activist group, Anonymous, reveals the identity and address of the victim’s primary tormentor. 15-year-old Amanda Todd, from Port Coquitlam, B.C., committed suicide last Wednesday, almost a month after she uploaded a YouTube video that demonstrating her struggle against sexualized attack and cyber bullying, which incited anxiety, depression and drug and alcohol abuse.

The nine-minute video explaining the reasons of her suicide expressed her story through handwritten flashcards. She narrated her story since Grade 7 when she was tricked by an anonymous online user flash her breasts via webcam. Later she was blackmailed on Facebook to give him a show, or he will share the webcam picture with her friends and family, which he did later on.

Anonymous released the name and address of a man residing in Vancouver, who allegedly bullied Todd on the internet. The activist group also mentioned that the 32-year-old culprit is involved in posting several videos on child pornography websites.

Inevitably the man is being targeted online and threatened by numerous users to carry out vigilante justice, which worries a Vancouver defence lawyer named Eric Gottardi. Gottardi worries that “the system isn’t supposed to convict someone before charges are laid. It’s not supposed to be judge, jury and executioner, all in the public forum.” He assured that “we have a justice system. It’s supposed to work, it does work.”
