To be honest I usually don't take him seriously either. He does seem to be a bit of a troll in the sense that he gets off on getting people worked up over various topics. However he did make a good point in that video. Why is everybody making such a big deal out of the Amanda Todd incident when there are quite a few other bullying related suicides that didn't get much media attention?

Remember when your parents used to tell you not to talk to strangers? Kids today accept friend requests from them and tell the personal information. They have a great number of "friends", most of whom they've never met, and just post things for the world to see without caring what could be done with that information. Kids need supervision, that's what parents are for.

I just say with all confidence.. Parents role and blame is being underplayed here. All this finger pointing. When we should be looking at Todds Parents for allowing this young girl a webcam, and access with no moderation.
Who the hell gives a little girl a webcam anyway??? REALLY?
Any parent who thinks its okay for a young girl to have a webcam, needs their heads fixed, and are not fit to be a "good" parent. IMO
Just to add.. If you allow your young girl a webcam to talk to family members that is one thing.. But take it away and put it up when you are not there to see what is going on.. I am serious, little girls and webcams have no place in any good home. Any parent who allows a girl under the age of 16 to be alone to her own devices with a webcam is a fool, bad parent, who is out of touch with reality.
