Archie Battersbee Case

Seems to be some hate campaign targetting his poor mam, (who i feel terrible pain for whilst admitting she’s probably not showing good judgement or has been ill advised. )
God I admit her facebook is an utter car crash. Poor woman. And theres masses of trolls now doxxing her and trolling her and dishing dirt on her. And she’s only too keen to engage with some really ranty and stereotypical facebook scratty type posts. Jesus.

What an awful mess.

She wants her phone taken off her.

Yup - for the vigil this evening/tomorrow.

I was thinking to myself on my way out tonight, if anything demonstrates the dangers of social media it’s this - Facebook has made a circus of a tragedy. Misinformation has given a distraught mother false hope, and a baying crowd will be in the way of hospital staff and other patients relatives all weekend.

If all this had happened in a film twenty year ago, you’d have Dismissed it as unrealistic.

But yeah. Her facebook is grim reading like. As is all the doxxing of her

In fairness? To the screenshot of that personal message? Are you for f***ing real? It's a pretty brutal message.

I get her heads all over the place but she's coming across an utter **** now.

Thing is mate, it’s not doxxing if you bring all the attention on yourself and plaster every detail of your life on social media.

Should people be arseholes to strangers on the internet? No. Is there any way to stop it? Also no.

She says Karma is a funny thing but I hope you dont have to go through the same as what im going through. But anyway, yeah, playing on words….

I’ve found some link with all Her facebook messages and posts (since Archies accident) and it’s really grim. Shes even having a go at someone from her past for having a small knob at one point I think :lol: a mean wtf

If those are the messages I’ve seen, I think it was her other son :eek:

Hopefully today is peaceful for the staff and other people in the hospital, and Archie can be laid to rest.

This. The absolute circus around it must be awful for other patients and their families.

As much as it must be awful for their parents, she needs to give social media and all forms of interviews a LONG break.

Horrific situation all round, My lass works with a woman whos husband was knocked off his bike cycling to work, He was in a coma and she was told by doctors he had a 5% chance or survival, If he managed to come round (and off life support) he would be in a complete vegetetive state.

On the day they were going to let him pass, brain activity started to show. 6 months later he was out of his coma and miraculously remembered just about everyone and everything about his life prior to the accident.

That’s a miracle, and a lovely thing to happen, but not at all comparable to Archie, I’m afraid

I can’t believe this has been headline news for days on end. The media have been in a feeding frenzy over what has been a tragic situation all round.

You have to feel very sorry for the medical staff.

It's emotional, become controversial due to a number of factors, and is a distraction from the political issues of the day.

Unfortunately I can believe and understand why it has been headline news for days...

Every right minded person is hoping that is the case, but part of me is expecting terrible scenes inside and outside the hospital.

The reporting on this from the media has been shocking without any thought for the ITU staff who have basically been fighting every day to keep his body going while this farce of legal appeals have been going on

Adding to that, undergoing slander and being called murderers and organ harvesters.

Well is she also admitting that all this is a result of karma?

Does she deserve to lose her son if she’s such a big believer in it? Is that what she’s saying?

It opens up a big can of worms saying shit like this.

The truth is that bad, f***ing horrible things happen to good, kind hearted people, if karma was real then innocent kids wouldn’t get sick.

I can’t work it out. She’s better off saying nowt and grieving privately imho.
 
Whilst I fully appreciate she is grieving and blatantly refusing to come to terms with an awful situation, one that few of us will ever experienced (thankfully)

The people and family advising her and the press reporting it are not helping things one bit and are clearly not looking after the poor lads or his mams best interests.

When my son died, I went through every state imaginable and it took straight talking from family and a friend to pull me out the other side and for that I'm eternally grateful. I miss him every day and celebrate his birthday, have his teddy and photos of him and the pain doesn't really ease despite it being 22 years ago now
I am so sad for your loss and you are right, the pain never goes away, when we lost our oldest Son in 1985 we would have done anything to keep him alive, including for a very short time what this mother is doing now, I remember us talking about what it would have been like had he survived and we both said Paul wouldn't have wanted to live like that, I think I died that day, we have a suitcase full of his clothes and toys, I can't open it, his little brother never got over losing his best pal and when Andrew died just over 7 years ago we have it all again.
My Wife and I have talked a lot about this poor lad and both feel what is happening isn't right, he is not alive and as much as his mum wants to keep him going it's over. The people advising her are not acting in her best interests, She needs people who can help her come to terms with her loss and I fear she won't get the support she is going to need.
