Check out this great MSN Video: Rapist ‘friended’ victim on Facebook

Check out this great MSN Video: Rapist ‘friended’ victim on FacebookI know this case is devastating and it should be a reminder that Internet sexual predators are real and are looking for our kids. But this can be avoided. No offline meeting is completely safe, no matter how old we are. If you insist on meeting someone in real life that you only know online, go with lots of friends, adult and preferably sumo wrestlers. Report creeps you encounter online so help save the next person who may not know as much as you do. Use privacy settings and carefully select friends.
This tragic death could have been avoided.
Let's try and do what we can to make sure it doesn't happen again on our watch.
