    Sure it's weak to die from depression. Just like it's weak to die from blood loss from an injury. Man up, control that blood flow. At the very least she was guilty of depraved indifference.

    Did I not hear she even encouraged him to get back into the car as he was dying of exhaust fumes? Evil $#@!.

    She did not look cute to me, I have seen reptiles with more compassionate eyes.

    Seems like the correct verdict.

    As for future precedent, online trolls are going to have to stop telling other people to kill themselves. I do not think that is a bad thing.

    Sentenced to a minimum of 15 months imprisonment.

    It will be appealed. Likely the "pretrial ruling, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court approved of the prosecutor’s “killing words” expansion of the crime of involuntary manslaughter", but also on free speech rights to the Supreme Court. See Michelle Carter Suicide Case Underlines Growing Legal Battles Over Speech Crimes.

    I'm divided on this. I can agree it was abhorent she encouraged suicide. But I think the verdict stretches the law and will affect similar cases of word crimes (see link).
