Judge Tentatively Dismisses Case Against Lori Drew

evilphish_mi Re:They should have found a more appropriate charg (420 comments)

That example is horribly irrelevant to this case. Drew didn't give her a rope and help her string herself up. She bullied her like every other kid has been bullied all over the world. most of which don't kill themselves.
