SOMETHING TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF EDMONTON?



Needing advice about online threats….how can I protect my daughter ?

My daughter was literally attacked verbally and then threatened by two complete strangers on line. It all stems from the allegation that her boyfriend “stole” a vehicle that in reality he was allowed to drive for work and in one case yes he did drive it east however his mother knew where he was was upset however nothing too major. At that time her getting the car home was the worry due to her inability to seek out alternative rides via handie bus or friend/family. Now my daughters boyfriend upon getting to Alberta , checked himself immediately into hospital to treat his schizophrenia disorder that he hadn’t been treated for in many years. My daughter being the kin hearted soul she is , remained by him and is currently stuck out there due to the fact she does not and has never driven. She doesn’t even hold a learners license. So with that being said , clearly the vehicle driven by her boyfriend was parked and then was suppose to be delivered to his family by Monday via arrangements he made. Now here is where it gets rediculous.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

Her boyfriend had contacted his family to let them know he was in hospital , there response was that they could care less , the car the car oh where the hell is the car. Upon him explaining very calmly (due to him finally being on medication) I am making arrangements it will be there soon. His mom responded with a heartless and dull response and upon him repeating himself again due to her not listening he got frustrated and hung up. My daughter after the visit called his mom back and I know my daughter, she was happy and elated he got the help however his mom could care less and so she got very upset and told her to “start caring about your son not a damn piece of tin (the car) your f’in b”.

ANOTHER POST:  Check in with with your daughter!

Well lord help us all. My daughter who is seldom on social media gets home , plugs her phone in and gets the shock of her life.

On her Facebook wall, under a public post one woman calls her a thief for stealing a car, her boyfriend too is a thief and how they both will be arrested for driving it … Of course all lies. Than next another woman, again a complete stranger , calls my daughter a cracker under a beautiful profile picture of hers. The same woman than messages my daughter and slanders her to the point where even I as her mother is reading this conversation going , are you kidding me ?!!! She called my daughter a drug addict, told her maybe drugs would fix her looks. Told my daughter her boyfriend has hiv and stds (of course he doesn’t, my god he was in the hospital and there is nothing of that sort in his file he went home with).

So my daughter , a woman who has been accepted into university , has a massive anxiety attack, winds up in the emergency room and as I write this hasn’t stopped crying in days. On top of all of this , her boyfriends cousin who happens to be her best friend was some how phone called and harassed. My daughter now has been forced to not have social media out of fear and is now also fearful to come home due to threats sent to her boyfriend saying she will get hurt if she comes home.

Her boyfriend , well now fiancé , confronted these individuals but hasn’t solved anything . What can I do ?

    1. Everyone else before me was being an ass. A lot of people don’t realize you have to edit your fb privacy every year because it becomes public. Not everyone is up to date with Facebook policies.

    1. In what world do u live in where police give a shit about harassment and threats? They won’t do anything until after something had happened to hurt her physically. Why do u think stalker cases are often ending in the death or harm of the stalked?

    2. BJ Lucas well I live in the same one as u, so in reply to your sarcasm…..
      I had an issue with harassment from my ex’s girlfriend. It got out of hand, and ridiculous. I had hundreds of msgs to prove it to them, so I filed a complaint, because i was done with it. They dealt with it.
      If this post is bogus, so be it. But I had a legit situation, and it was taken seriously

  1. Drama drama drama. Make a police report if you wish but who knows how it will dealt with.

    Close social media, don’t date idiots, do the right thing and your daughter will be fine!

  2. For those that say shit happens, online attacks happen all the time…. Yes, but there is a reason why online bullying and harrasment is taken seriously and illegal. People and children have committed suicide over it. IT’S NOT OK….

    1. It’s not okay…..however, people should also not have all their shit public so any idiot can comment! Lock ur shit up and only have ppl u know on social media. No one sees my stuff unless I know em.

  3. If they can do that and not care about there family members, that just shows they are nothing important and anything they say I would laugh at them cuz I’m sure the have medical issues that they haven’t been treated for clearly

  4. Haha I unfortunately got sucked into the Drama of the first posting… this OP did not understand that her daughter was With the people who later were suspected in stealing a truck. Guilty by association, if you don’t want to be looked at as a suspect then don’t Date or hang around idiots! I’m sick of people avoiding the consequence of their own actions. Grow up.

    1. Right? Not only take responsibility for yourself, but parents need to stop enabling their kids behavior. How else can you expect your kids to make responsible decisions in life?

  5. for those that don’t understand, i picked it apart for you… My comments are in the brackets.

    Guy takes vehicle he was suppose to use for work but decided to drive out east. guy got back into Alberta and checked into a hospital and had to park the car.
    This lady’s daughter doesn’t have her learners and is stuck out there (Where is out there? crazy house? hospital? doesn’t make sense to me) and she stayed with him in the hospital.

    Guy calls mom to tell her that he’s in the hospital and where the car is and that he is making arrangements to have the car dropped off. She says something rude (i would be PISSED if my kid did this) so the guy hangs up.

    Girl calls the guy’s mom and tells her to start caring about her son and not about a car. (If I had a son and his gf said this to me I would tell her to go eff herself!) So somehow magically the daughter gets home and plugs in her phone and looks on social media. (I thought she was stuck “out there”? Too many inconsistencies here)

    The daughter finds comments and messages that are a little mean, but nothing was a threat (i’m basing this on what above says) Girl has anxiety attack and goes to hospital.
    Bf apparently got threats saying the girl will get hurt if she comes home (how do these people know where she lives?)

    Mom of girl now wants to know what she can do to help the situation.

    1. I know, I just tried to make it as simple as possible. I still don’t understand.
      But my comment is this mom probably should stay out of it and let her adult child figure it out on her own.
      The only reason people get threats is if they’re involved in some shady stuff.

  6. When I read this. All i feel like maybe someone is lying to you and its probably your daughter. Im getting so many red flags that maybe there is a drug problem.

    But thats only what I get from what I just read.

  7. Lol your daughter is an adult. Let her handle her own shit and learn some life lessons. Fucken hover parents. No wonder she had anxiety attack cause someone called her a cracker and doesn’t like her. There’s more to it if her own best friend turned on her.

  8. Okay – first of all proof read what you write before you hit “Submit” because most of that didn’t make sense. Secondly you ask what can you do… I dunno.. it’s not your issue, it’s theirs, they have to deal with it, but you can tell your daughter not to engage people in online arguments as that just escalates things, ignore or deal with them in a humorous way. Finally – hospitals don’t check for STD’s unless you ask them too. It’s not like you go in for one problem and they check for others…

  9. Literally attacked verbally eh? The word verbally implies that she was literally attacked verbally. You don’t have to emphasize that this actually happened, because it is completely believable… I stop reading posts after I see an unnecessary use of that word btw.

  10. Your daughter is too immature to have a “fiancé”. Especially one who may or may not be in legal trouble and who also has a significant mental illness that may or may not be under control. My advice?

    Encourage your daughter to break away from the drama, finish school, and learn to fight her own battles.

    [0]
  11. I think you have a situation where your daughter isn’t telling you everything or she truly is ignorant to what’s going on around her. Advise?? Tell your daughter to get rid of this guy and the family that comes along with him! Nothing else u can do unless u want to encourage a life like this for your child. Otherwise……last choice, let her make her own mistakes if she’s “too in love”.

    [0]
  12. And the social media…..there is ways to control that by privacy settings! If there was serious threats made…..contact the police. If it’s bad but not enough to call he police…..get ur FB and crap of public so everyone can see and comment! Worry less about people seeing all ur posts and more about safety and sanity.
