    That is so terribly sad. I understand the instinct for public shaming though. How do you feel about it?

  2. Despite how despicably these adults acted, I don’t think that shaming is the answer. Given the facts of this case, it is likely to spark attempts at vigilante justice. Using the civil and/or criminal justice system to deal with this case would be the most appropriate course of action. Having people take the law into their own hands is typically not a recipe that produces anything good.
