I just saw how Michelle Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter this morning. Foolishly, the teenager texted her boyfriend that it was okay to commit suicide. She didn’t tell him to get out of the vehicle and save himself, never did she said, “Let me get you help!” No she kept texting him as he slowly died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Young people like to communicate thru texting. If I told someone to kill themselves, I’d be doing hard time. Thankfully for her, she was a teenager when that happened thus she won’t do hard time. I know nothing of the case but I wonder what her motive was? A new love interest?
I wonder if as part of her sentence, there’s a no text rule in her life. So she texted her boyfriend and I guess she never thought investigators would look at his phone. This is your typical naive teenager’s action. Well, she’ll always have the scarlet letter on her, M for murderer. This too will pass
