And the mercy seat is waiting

Teenaged girl has her mother murdered, posts about it to her LiveJournal (which is titled "My Crappy Life").
Just to let everyone know, my mother was murdered
I wont have computer acess (sic) until the weekend or so because the police took my computer to go through the hard drive. I thank everyone for their thoughts and e-mails, I hope to talk to you when I get my computer back.

Apparently the issue that touched off this unusually fatal bout of teen-angst had to do with Mom keeping food away from her and threatening to send her to fat camp; so she got two of her ex-boyfriends (both 24 years old) to help her out. Not surprisingly, the entry has attracted over 2,000 comments, alternating between variants of "hope you rot in hell" and "nice to see everyone here is so quick to judge", and then degenerating into goatse and such.

You've pretty much summed up the essence of internet "conversations." It starts with the moralists then the anti-moralists then the people who realize that thousands of others are reading that thread and their first instinct is to post disturbing photos.
