More concerned peoples response to seeing her name was to HARASS, THREATEN, and BULLY a young teen for doing a dumb thing that young teens are prone to do.

That is FAR more disgraceful to Rypiens memory.

Agreed. It's the "Big Brother" is watching mentality that is disturbing.

Oh no, Pauser's disgusted!

Rypien was driven to suicide by things that happened to him as a kid. Do any of you clowns think crapping on a kid is the way to remember him? FFS!

To be fair... not all Bieber fans are hockey fans, let alone Canucks fans.

She probably saw a few messages for "Rick," "Rypper", "Ryp", "Rypien", "37" etc... and not knowing what it meant, decided to leave a message as well.

It's like the gum wall in Seattle (I don't know the full story), it could have meant something to someone, or some group of people, but now it's wall for all.

I agree with this but as far as the other part of your post we don't really know the exact cause of his depression but I thought it had to do with the fact that "During Rypien's second season with the Regina Pats, his girlfriend died in a car accident while en route to watch him play in Calgary" and nothing to do with bullying.

Terrible.

Some people my age are so aggravating and mentally numb. Liking JB is one thing, but vandalising a memorial? That's low.

What I've seen in general from today's youth in society is actually quite scary. I don't mean to generalize anyone either as there are a lot of bright youthful people out there. I just feel sorry for the teens who are intelligent for the crap they have to put up with from their peers.

I'd bet the exact same people who are appalled by cyber bullying can't wait to share their useless thoughts about a young kid. This thread means I win the bet.

It's a shame, but honestly guys, this girl had no idea she was "vandalizing" somebodies memorial. It's highly likely this girl had NO idea who Rypien was. Threatening her over it is ridiculous.

What they NEED to do is put up a plaque for Rypien where this memorial is. It would be as easy as a phone call or two for the Canucks to do. Even something small like the one up in Crowsnest would be perfect. They need something permanent there. Those chicken scratches won't do.

We need to make this happen.

She probably didn't even know who Rick was. It's ignorance if anything. We shouldn't be fighting ignorance with hate and more ignorance. We should fight it with knowledge and understanding.

Shame on all the people giving her angry, out-of-line tweets. There is no place for that.

It was a mistake by a little girl... She clearly had no ill-will toward Rypien. Mountain out of a mole hill.

I'm not sure how old you are, but **** like this happened all the time when I was a teenager. It just got cleaned up the next day instead of turning into an instant internet sensation.

Jesus, I can't imagine the sensationalized world you live in. "Egads! The Safeway is out of milk. I can't believe the disgusting deterioration of behaviour I see from grocery clerks today! Well, I suppose they've left me no choice. Off to the internet to voice my displeasure!"

Are you actually suggesting that today's youth is worse or more extreme? I don't believe it is.

We are exposed to more idiocy through the saturation of social media but to say there is an overall drop in the moral fibre or quality of teens is far fetched and impossible to prove.

It really depends how bad you think that is. I don't think what she did is a big deal, it's not something that someone aiming to deface a memorial does. I'm not going to compare it to someone writing a racial slur with spray paint, that's for sure.

The only difference between now and then is how many more youth there are doing stupid things because of population growth and how many more things we are getting to see because of technology.

Morally and intellectually superior beings do not go at children like rats in a bucket... Who ever is attacking this girl online (if an adult) is a fish... and be weary of fish, who are trying to teach you how to fish

She wrote her name... That has to be the most telling part of what her intent was, and how sinister her plan was to vandalize... It's not the same thing as an adult rioter, covering his face, intently deciding to vandalize the city... How many rioters leave their business cards at the scene?

It was an idiotic mistake, IMHO... But for christ sake, she's a real young girl... and a Justin Bieber fan... Why shouldn't she be given the benefit of the doubt, by an adult? I'd expect teenagers to attack her online (calling her an idiot, etc. - being unable to separate the act from the person)... But an adult (someone who is supposed to be above intellectual adolesence?)... Even if an adult believes this girl is evil, I don't understand why an adult would contribute to attacking a child online? How does this adult make this child feel? It's the playground of children, IMHO, attacking children is best kept amongst children, and adults tell these children that it's wrong to attack each other in such a way... Adults should be at higher levels of the game... She should be given the benefit of the doubt, IMHO, because why not? What's the alternative? Make a child feel worthless? The job of adults should be, IMO, to make children feel worthfull... Even if she is evil, the only chance she has to get over her evil ways is to feel good about herself - not make her feel worse... This is bloody silly, IMO... and ironic that it happened on Rypien's memorial... Even if troubled (which I don't think she is) does anyone think Rypien himself would condone making her feel terrible / depressed - or, would he want her to try and improve? Even those adults who think she is evil must think that this is a sign of anger or trouble? The role of an adult isn't to put her further down this path (if the goal is for a productive society - leaving the future in their hands)... And yet, chances are, it was a terrible misunderstanding... I know nothing about this girl... She might be a real nice young girl... Regardless of if she is a real nice young girl, or a real **** disturber, she doesn't deserve this from adults (> 18)... IMO, < 18 should be given more slack... They're still trying to figure out their moral compass - and are less inclined to see how words can hurt, and less inclined to be able to put themselves in her shoes...
