    Gene Cooley is awarded $404,000 for libelous internet postings surrounding the death

    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bes...bel.cnn?hpt=T2

    ...The poster wrote Cooley was a "pervert" and drug addict with a lengthy criminal record, a man who had been in prison and rehab. Harper’s daughter, who was 9 at the time, must be protected from Cooley, the poster wrote.

    “I didn’t really even know the woman. I knew her in passing,” Cooley, 44, told the AJC. “She worked at two places [where] I was a customer.”

    Cooley had a criminal background check run on himself showing that he had no such past, but people didn’t seem to care. Eventually he had to leave Blairsville, where his mother, sister and two sons lived, to find another job. He now lives in Augusta and works as a hairdresser.

    Ballew is the woman who wrote the posts under the pseudonyms Mouth, Calvin, Bugs, Yuck, Rebel and Slim. She admitted in court that she also had conversations with herself, posting her concerns on the site under one name and then agreeing with the posts under another persona.

    When asked in court why she wrote those things about Cooley, Ballew answered, “I watched him and I can tell a pervert. Every time a pretty girl walked by, he would look at them. I get a feeling.”...



    What is wrong with people. She "got a feeling" about him? Evidently you were wrong biotch! I hope this cripples her financially for life.

    She's saying the lady's a nut for creating multiple personalities for the site.

    My doctor thinks I may be schizophrenic, and he thinks I might be too.
