This same girl received death threats because of this video. People at the website 4chan found her real name, her address, birthdate, etc and sent death threats and harassed her simply or this video--4Chan, if you anything of them, will try their best to ruin the lives of anyone they dislike. They once sent grisly and disturbing (real) crash site photos to the email address of parents of a girl who was mangled and decapitated in a horrible car crash because they felt it was fun to do.
Bear in mind, the girl in this video was 11 when it was made. Her father was arrested for hitting her so hard in the face that her mouth bled while drunk just yesterday and on other websites, there were people actually APPLAUDING a man making his 12 year old daughter's mouth bleed. I don't care how fucked up a kid is acting, you don't punch a fucking 12 year old girl. You don't make your child bleed. I don't care what they're doing or saying.
This is just one example of many which shows how I feel society and our sense of morality in general has degenerated....Maybe it's just the internet and people aren't really this fucked up in real life (IE that a large percentage of people would really view making a 12 year old girl's mouth bleed as acceptable). I hope that's the case.
Beyond that...What has happened to our society? Would an 11 (she was 11 when the video was made) girl have acted anything like that in 1900? In 1960? Perhaps it's just me and my idealization of the past again, but somehow I feel like children were more innocent once. Our nation was more innocent once.
Perhaps, as is often the case, I am wrong. Maybe I'm just a cultural and moral dinosaur and punching 12 year olds is A-OK. Maybe 12 year olds always acted like this.
