RIP Felicia Garcia ::: How many more?


Felicia Garcia, 15, had been branded a “slut” and relentlessly tormented by fellow classmates, after she had group sex with four football players during a wild party on Oct. 19 — and a videotape of the sexual encounter surfaced on the Internet. 

Whoever took the video and posted it needs to go to jail.

The tormented high school freshman, who was living with a foster family, killed herself on Oct. 24, when she fell backwards onto the train tracks after school at Huguenot Staten Island Railway – in front of her horrified classmates  ... On October 17, Felicia tweeted: 'I hate when peopl (sic) are in my buisness (sic), you dont even know whats going on, mind ya neck #Shot -_-'  She also wrote recently: 'Take me as I am or leave me as I was.'

Tragic Felicia moved from foster home to foster home after her parents died, leaving her and younger brother orphans. She also spent time living at friends' houses and at her ex-boyfriend's place.
'(She) had a terrible life on top of all the heartache — bullies at school taunted her and spread rumors,' Gabriella Leone, whose younger sister witnessed the incident, told The New York Post.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
