THAT Facebook page. "Oops, I'm sorry".

Burnley woman sorry for Raoul Moat Facebook page (From Lancashire Telegraph)

THE Burnley woman who sparked fury by setting up a Facebook page stating Raoul Moat was a legend says she bitterly regrets it

Siobhan O'Dowd of Saltburn Street said she did not realise the outrage the site would cause.

Why do they always "deeply regret it" after the event?

Yesterday she took down the RIP Raoul Moat You Legend group, which had more than 40,000 members, after criticism from Prime Minister David Cameron.

At least it wasn't taken down by Facebook.
Its been commented on here (Angry Exile) here (Longrider) and here (AJ's Final Word) that it would have been wrong for Facebook to capitulate to David Cameron and take down the page themselves.

Ms O'Dowd said: “I just put it for me and my friends

“I didn't think this would happen.

I don't really know what to make of that. You created a page on Facebook, praising a nutbag, and it was just for you and your friends. What else do you and your friends get up to?

“I don't condone what he has done and don't agree one little bit about him shooting people.

“I just genuinely felt sorry for him because he asked for help but didn't get it and felt his whole life had been taken away from him when he was in jail.

The 21-year-old added: “I feel sorry for the families because it was an awful thing he did.”

I don't think you actually knew this chap personally so WTF are you spouting on about?

She said: “I thought him hiding from the police was legendary.

“He did make the coppers look stupid and that is why a lot of people respected him.

According to the comments, she is a hair and beauty student. Probably too fucking thick to be anything proper, as evidenced above.

Crazy woman praises nutbag
