Court bans 12-year old girl from Facebook for 1 year

A 12-year-old girl’s life a hit after a judge in her hometown of Brandon, Canada, banned her from Facebook for a full, entire year.
The reason: she'd used the social network to threaten two of her Manitoba area classmates, writing, "You have no idea how bad I want to strangle you two girls!!!! Omg! Yu just wait. Your time will come!"
According to the Winnipeg Free Press, the girl was inspired to write such a curdling threat after she found out that her boyfriend was "cheating" on her with one of the other girls who attended the same elementary school.

One of the girls' mothers found the note and reported it to police, and the offender admitted responsibility.
The judge levied the 12-year-old with a one-year probation order and 50 hours of community service. The order also imposes a one-year ban from Facebook, the place where the 12-year-old spends so much of her time.
