The Cliff Notes on Jessie Slaughter

Here we are swooshing along on the techno highway, with things trending up and down so fast the computer cows in the PC pastures turn into blurry chips. Until something like Jessie Slaughter (not her real name) comes along. Jessie Slaughter is an eleven-year-old with a web-cam, a foul mouth and an attitude. In one video we see Jessie provocatively dressed in a zebra top with a peek-a-boo bra ranting about her “haters” and how people are jealous because she is “perfect” and continues the expletive filled video, at one point threatening her “haters with, “I’ll pop a glock in your mouth, and make a brain slushie.” WTH?

It all started on a Tweenster celebrity website called “Sticky Drama” supposedly written and viewed by the Tween set. It was there that little Jessie got into some sticky drama of her own and that’s when the cyber-bullying began. At some point Jessie posted a video to YouTube and called out her haters and that’s when the trolls multiplied like gremlins. Someone found and posted Jessie’s real name, address, sent pizzas to her home, there were prank phone calls, death threats and finally her parents got involved.

And while the drum beat of cyber threats, of predators and bullying gets beaten so loud and often we sometimes tune it out, Jessie Slaughter reminds me of why parents need to monitor their child’s use of the Internet. I mean really we’ve all seen those bozos on the Dateline “To Catch A Predator” series.

Interesting video. After about a minute of talking, Jamie Oliver shows a classroom video where he asks children to identify different vegetables. Several children could not identify a tomato.

Folks, we need to educate our children now!
