I must say that I agree with you. It is too bad that she only saw herself as a victim in this situation and not is an active participant. She couldn't see nor accept the role she played and the contributions she made to her own misery.
I'm not condoning the actions of bullies but if there was someone who knew how all of this got started and there must have been someone after all she was on medication. They should have taken the time to educate her on the consequences of meeting strangers online and taking your clothes off.
It's really a sad situation all the way around.”
“"Each tree had 56 oranges. If 8 Undocumented Workers pick them equally, then how much would each Undocumented Worker pick?" That seems a little more relevant to the times. Let's bring back our solders back from Afghanistan and secure our boarders.
Slavery is a terrible legacy to have to live down and when you think about it for some, it has only been about four to five generations at the most that African Americans have been free and about sixty years since the Civil rights movement first began so with that said we all (black people included) need to have a little bit more compassion for each other because like it or not, it is because of slavery in this country which was the most brutal and inhuman comparatively that we will forever be tied to one another.
BTW, there are just as many fat, lazy, ignorant, white people (that have no excuse) on welfare as blacks and other minorities and its just as awful to see.”
“I don't like the fact that one must either request to join or receive an invite from a friend already on the site. I made a request to join last month. I haven't received an invite yet only a message immediately after I made the request that I was being put on a waiting list. "A Waiting List!"
I must say I already don't like the way that makes me feel. I venture to say that I have now lost interest in Pinterest. I'll wait for the next big site maybe by that time I will have received my invitation and I can gracefully decline.”

“I would be happy to invite you. ;) But totally understand the "snobbish" image that process projects. I must admit that I use it daily. Have gotten some great recipes, home organization tips, etc.”
“It's worrisome that no one has mentioned the thing that made her runaway in the first place. Just because her family is saying that they love and care about her doesn't mean that it's the truth. Perhaps, she was abused and maybe what she stole was food, feminine supplies, toilet paper. Life on the streets is hard. I was a homeless teenager because my mother was schizophrenic and abusive. Everyone believed whatever my mother told them because she was very charismatic. But, it's sad how everyone has condemned Jakadrien. How about a little thing called the benefit of the doubt because I hope that your unwillingness to extend it to her isn't because of the color of her skin because if it is white people have lied and continue to lie about minorities killing their children, husbands, wives, dogs etc when they are the ones who committed the crime in the first place; So, how about some compassion and open-mindedness here?
On a positive note; I'm happy to know that the US is deporting illegals. Now if we could only tighten our boarders...”

“I have mentioned in several postings that origin of problem stems from CRAZY family. That's pretty obvious.
Do wish media outlets were putting a different spin on story. That said, media isn't trying to milk the "government deports poor, innocent teen" side as hard as they could. Even media realizes that the chances of that aspect being true are slim to none. Media's using small spoon to stir this pot, though it deserves NO stirring at all.”
