Facebook Vandal Jailed For Defacing Dead Kids' Pages

MSNBC.COM - A 29-year-old man has been jailed for defacing Facebook pages which served as tribute sites for two dead children by posting sexually explicit comments and disturbing images — all while using another man's identity.

The Brisbane Times reports that Bradley Paul Hampson used the name of a man he claims he'd gone to school with to post cruel messages on Facebook pages set up in memory of two young children:

On one Facebook tribute site for the 12-year-old boy, he wrote "woot I'm dead" across an image of the dead child.

He also morphed a photo of the boy's face inside a woodchipper and made it appear blood was coming from the machine.

On another, he wrote sexually explicit comments implying he was responsible for raping and killing the eight-year-old girl.

"My definition of pleasure ... listening to her ribs crack," he wrote. "I got mad ... so I murdered her."

When police officers tracked Hampson down and examined his computer, they discovered "almost 200 images that depicted children as the victims of abuse and sadism." Some of those images included photos of missing and murdered children "with penises superimposed on their faces."

Hapson pleaded guilty to charges of distributing child exploitation material, using the Internet to menace, harass or cause offense and possessing child exploitation material. On Friday, he was sentenced to three years of jail.
