Trolling is a growing problem online and especially in social media spaces. It clogs up our email boxes, confuses the follower/following counts and throws monkey wrenches into people actively building engaged online communities. I have created my own types based on behavior I have seen.
In the case of the fatal beating of Luis Ramirez, a federal grand jury recently delivered indictments that included the commission of a hate crime, obstruction of justice, official misconduct, and extortion.
Even if sexual harassment (as opposed to conduct) should become relevant, in my opinion, the public statements of the defendant's lawyer were aimed at threatening the victim rather than vindicating his client.
