For the next two years, Laws fought tirelessly, contacting over 100 victims, and collecting information on Moore and his site's users. She began to suspect that Moore or one of his associates had hacked her daughter's email account, and probably had done so to other women as well. She was making tremendous progress. But in Act II of the tense cyber-espionage thriller that was now Laws' life, Moore's "family" got wind of her doings ... and launched a massive harassment campaign to scare her off the case. She started receiving death threats, her private info was leaked online, and she once even had to chase a man trying to hack into her personal network away from her house.

But not only did Laws endure -- she fucking won. After a lengthy investigation, she turned over every scrap of evidence she had to the FBI, who in turn arrested Moore for unauthorized access to her daughter's computer, among a host of other charges. In December 2015, Moore was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, where the question "Is anyone up?" takes on a whole new dimension.
Catholic School Girls Attack And Capture A Pervert Flasher
For the type of creeper who hangs around Catholic schools and flashes the students, the fantasy is probably that a dozen or so of those girls will get riled up, chase after him -- their knee-high socks pumping, their plaid skirts fluttering in the air -- and then pin him to the ground.
That exact scenario played out for one particular pervert in 2003; it just wasn't quite as sexy as he'd hoped. The flasher had been exposing himself to students of St. Maria Goretti's, an all-girls Catholic school in South Philadelphia. However, instead of the averted gazes and muffled giggling he was probably hoping for, he found himself facing the fury of a horde of teenage girls the likes of which hasn't been seen since Sephora ran out of lip gloss.

Like a ridiculous neighborhood gang from The Warriors, the Catholic schoolgirls chased after the man and eventually tackled him to the ground. Far from repenting his gross ways, as you'd hope, the flasher instead tried to pull a small knife on the gaggle of teenagers. Again, this didn't unfold the way he'd assumed. The girls did not squeal and run away in terror -- they kicked the tiny knife (metaphor, anyone?) right out of his damn hand, then gave him a few bonus kicks just for having the nerve.
So we guess the overall moral of this article is: Don't fuck with Philly girls.
