The Florida bully case is now focusing on two sets of parents belonging to the two girls who were arrested for the bullying of a 12-year-old girl who committed suicide. Rebecca Sedwick was tormented by these girls. This allegedly caused her suicide, bringing her to the point where she climbed to the top of a water tower at an abandoned concrete plant and hurled herself off the tower to her death below, according to The Inquisitr on Oct. 17.
Today there are two sets of parents looking at this case in two very different ways. The parents of Guadalupe Shaw, who is 14, are in denial. Shaw is the one who posted that cold-blooded message on Facebook admitting to bullying Rebecca. "Denial" is what Fox News live is calling their mindset on Thursday.
The second set of parents belonging to the unnamed 12-year-old girl facing charges for bullying Rebecca are devastated and heartbroken to think that their daughter possibly had a hand in driving this young girl to her death. They knew Rebecca well because she was once best friends with their daughter, who is now facing charges. These parents are described as a couple in 'deep despair' over this case.
This comes on the heels of the Sheriff Grady Judd blaming the parents for the Florida bully case. Perhaps the message posted on Guadalupe Shaw’s Facebook page right after she had learned of Rebecca’s death will show just how much in denial these parents are today. The cruel message said:
“Yes, I know I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself but IDGAF [I don't give a f**k].”
The parents of this girl believed her Facebook page was hacked because Guadalupe is “a good girl,” and “I’m 100 % sure that whatever they are saying about my daughter is not true,” said her mother. The parents would not bend during an interview, sticking to their guns that their daughter is innocent despite a year’s worth of online bullying.
Guadalupe appears to be the ring leader behind this bullying case as 15 other girls, who also took part in the bullying, did so because they did not want her coming after them. Guadalupe has been charged with aggravated stalking and she remains in a detention center. The 12-year-old girl, also charged with aggravated stalking was released home to her parents.’
The 12-year-old girl’s parents have reached out and apologized to Rebecca’s family. Guadalupe’s parents still believe their daughter did nothing wrong, even though she has a history of bullying behavior.
