Mayor threatens facebook group ‘ge art of Kuurne oje’ to shut down after suicide and bullying: Stop with each other to stir up
Kuurne Mayor Francis Benoit (CD&V) is the verbal abuse on the facebook group ‘Ge art of Kuurne oje’ tired. The suicide of a resident as a result of some offensive remarks, was for him the final straw . “It must stop”, posted Benoit. Some of the insults on the page were taken offline. Administrator Jan Dufour took a step back.

A Facebook page with purpose to the inhabitants closer together, in Kuurne, just for spite. Who responses post on ‘Ge art of Kuurne oje’, all too often, a little diplomatic reply, such as " Eat a little less, thick cow’, or ‘first Learn to write, randdebiel’. Painful detail: the sneer was directed to a member with a disability. The closed facebook group ‘Ge art of Kuurne oje’ has more than more than 5,400 members, a significant part of the population of Kuurne ( 13.241). Someone to publicly humiliate them has never been so easy.

Mayor Francis Benoit is tired and posted a flaming post on the page. He is also planning measures. “If the threat does not stop, I put the IT cell of the police zone Vlas, in order to examine whether we the page can block. A year and a half ago killed someone in our church committed suicide. That person - I will mention no name for the sake of privacy, had problems and went partly down by the social pressure in this group was performed. Since then, it runs further out of hand. During the christmas season, escalated to a debate between lovers of fireworks and animal lovers. Someone made a movie in which there's fireworks in a garden was fired, as a message for a neighbor: "Here, for your dog, so he still what's more it can vibrate. Unacceptable. Stop using each other to stir. Kuurne is really not a sour municipality where only ruziemakers live. We have a close-knit and warm community, with residents who are proud of Kuurne. We show that not ruin it by troublemakers in that facebook group. The group must now to the essence return. Because such an initiative can also be beneficial. I think to call when a pet goes missing, trivia and classified ads and beautiful photos from the past.”
