Trial by Fury: Internet Savagery and the Amanda Knox Case

Trial by Fury: Internet Savagery and the Amanda Knox Case - Douglas Preston Via http://onlectus.blogspot.com/2013/05/trial-by-fury-internet-savagery-and.htmlThis book is a Kindle single (100 pages). Based on the case of Amanda Knox, Preston discusses Internet viciousness. He talks about people going to the extreme to get Knox punished for a murder she might or might have not committed.The questions Preston covers are:- Why do people post vicious messages online?- Why do people who have nothing to do with this case, or any other case for that matter, devote time to attacking the offender? - Are you morally accountable online?Anti-Amanda groups have gone to the extreme of stalking pro-Amanda people and exposing their personal lives. Why? What do they gain with that?The book is very interesting as at one time or another, I too have posted an angry message against someone. Definitely worth the $0.99 I paid for it. I think it is free if you have Amazon Prime.
