    Aaaaand what's the bet there'll be people out there *completely* convinced this had something to do with Slenderman.

    In my day (pre-internet) it was Freddy Krueger and heavy metal music making 'em do it.

    Fact is - some kids need mental/emotional help, and don't get it. So they suicide/set fires/kill other kids/etc. Blaming whatever pop culture icons they idolised is utterly misplacing responsibility. Troubled kids go *seeking* icons that reflect how they already feel and who they believe they are, etc.

    It's like blaming fire for the existence of arsonists.

    That said, I have had my suspicions that there's an element among the readership of these websites who *might* be encouraging kids toward destructive behaviour. No solid proof yet, but this does nothing to quell that suspicion... Still, not the icon to blame there - human error, all the way.
