I find it odd that people, including a mod, are implying that this is infringing on their rights and comparing this to trolling on ATS. Nobody on ATS has done something this vile (well maybe, but the mods would have taken care of it). What this guy did is not much different than repeatedly calling up the family and mocking them. That would be a crime too. He harassed the family of dead teenagers. I am shocked that anyone would think that is ok.edit on 17-3-2012 by InvisibleAlbatross because: (no reason given)

Just because its an online sites means nothing if someone goes out of their own way, to basically insult and inflict emotional damage.
Would it have been the same if he rang the family and gave them verbal abuse? No it wouldn't, but then you only phoned that family, when you do it on facebook its just as bad for the family but ALL THEIR FRIENDS will also be affected.
This trolling business is public humiliation and cruelty and should always be taken very seriously.
Internet anonymity - with great power comes great responsibility.
