...her boyfriend to suicide. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crim...elle-carter-case/ar-BBTeQUy?OCID=ansmsnnews11 "In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Judicial Court rejected legal arguments that Carter’s text messages and cellphone calls with Roy were forms of free speech protected by the First Amendment, and instead applied a 203-year-old ruling to her 21st Century communications. “We conclude that the evidence was sufficient to support the judge’s finding of proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed involuntary manslaughter as a youthful offender, and that the other legal issues presented by the defendant, including her First Amendment claim, lack merit,’’ Justice Scott L. Kafker wrote for the court. “We therefore affirm.” " "Carter was 30 miles away from Roy and on the phone with him, listening as he inhaled carbon monoxide in his pickup truck in a Fairhaven parking lot, according to testimony. At one point, Roy, 18, told Carter he was getting out of the truck, but Carter ordered him back in, prosecutors said." OK. So aside from this girl being absolutely horrible... how is this different from the common 'troll' of 'go kill yourself'? That's not illegal, is it? To be clear, I really don't know what to think of this, and I really don't want to defend her. It really does seem like she's at least somewhat responsible for her boyfriends suicide... but was it really in a legally binding way? What power did she have to order him to kill himself? Did she cast a magical spell to overcome his free will? Was she holding someone hostage? Was this really anything more than just her being a total raging B, and how can that be illegal? What are your thoughts?
