Ha­rass­ment case

The Timaru Herald - - COMMENT&OPINION -

The story ‘‘‘Dirty money’ will go to char­ity’’ (April 22), about the ha­rass­ment cam­paign waged by Jeremy Buis against a Dunedin busi­ness­man, in my opin­ion high­lights why dig­i­tal ha­rass­ment won’t go away.

It dis­ap­points me. I be­lieve Jeremy Buis should have re­ceived a min­i­mum of two years’ jail time. He made Daniel Pryde’s life hell for two years so the penalty should’ve been the same.

Laws must be changed now to stop this. If the ju­di­cial sys­tem in this coun­try al­lows th­ese types of idiots to get away with this type of be­hav­iour, then ex­pect the prob­lem to get worse.

They call them­selves cy­ber­bul­lies. The first thing to do is call them what they are. They should be called face­less cow­ards.

It re­ally can’t be hard to make us and our chil­dren safe from th­ese face­less cow­ards.

I be­lieve the me­dia should in­sti­gate this name change. How many peo­ple would think it is cool to be known as a cow­ard? John Bolt
