'Sick sadist' used high-profile tragedies to target grieving families, court hears

Post by Didge on Thu Aug 30, 2018 7:48 pm

A "sick sadist" internet troll used high-profile tragedies to target grieving families, a court has heard.

Paul Hind, 38, posted offensive material on Facebook about four dead young people.

He called Olivia Burt, a 20-year-old Durham University student who died from head injuries after an incident outside the city's Missoula nightclub in February, a "sex worker" and "prostitute" on the social media site.

South East Northumberland Magistrates' Court heard on Thursday that the defendant, of Westacres in Wark, also doctored an image of the dead woman and posted pictures of children who were "clearly terminally ill" on her Facebook page on April 20.

Speaking after Hind had admitted four separate offences of conveying false information which was indecent or grossly offensive, Ms Burt's father, Nigel Burt, from Hampshire, said his actions were a "desecration" of his daughter's memory.

Describing how the postings had made him and Ms Burt's mother, Paula Burt, feel "physically sick", he said: "The person who carried out this trolling can only be described as a sick sadist who knows that they are adding to our anguish and gets enjoyment out of this.

"Even though the Facebook posts have now gone, we keep expecting them to reappear on some other social media platform.

"This is causing us continuing anxiety and distress."

People like him are mentally ill in some way....not to mention cowardly little keyboard warriors. Sick and nasty individuals like him need to be named and shamed....and jailed.
I doubt he would be so contritious if he hadn't been caught.
