This story is actually quite old. IIRC, it was reported around the same time last year. Just another tabloid crap attempt at creating a moral panic around ANY sort of "social media". Must be some developments in the case (i.e. an appeal or something), a slow news week, or they couldn't find any other relevant PWT (Poor White Trash) fights to report on this month.
FWIW, CB in the 80's in Hellbourne had it's share of 'tards. I remember scaring the crap out of a few of 'em The difference these days though, is that more of these losers actually believe the Hollywood crap they watch and really do believe in their own invincibility.
