Online Harassment: Ryan Searfoss Wants Me To Kill Myself. Perhaps You Too.

I have not done a ton of writing about the individual bullying that goes on to families like ours.  But this one deserves a spotlight.  Ryan Searfoss is writing to mothers like me to tell them to kill themselves.  Because we know that sending messages like these are potentially very harmful, can lead to the end of a life, and are completely out of the bounds of acceptable behavior in society.

This holds for every human in this debate.  While certainly disability parents should never be treated this way, not even the most corrupt public official should be either.

And whomever this Ryan Serfoss guy is, and I don't have a clue, I hope those who know him, and whatever community he belogs to, will tell him to cut it out.

Update:

Since posting this I have found four more women who have similar messages from him, all sent over the span of a year and a half.  This is a habitual offender apparently.  Will post their screen shots if they give me permission.

Update 3/7/16

Mr. Searfoss apparently has become aware of this post, and sent me the following today:




UPDATE:

He is still at it.  This week from Yolanda Gilbert Gracia:

Never in a million years. You have put yourself out there for years to save those babies who are destined to be harmed by the current vaccination schedule. I envy you that you have the chutzpah to continue on with this battle. I have long since given up trying to change things in this corrupt world.

I am sorry you have to deal with this lunatic.

If if he wants to be secretive about who he is, he shouldn't tag his wife on things on Facebook, and they probably shouldn't comment on each other's posts.

What an ass. I found looked him up and seems like a snarky guy with nothing better to do. I wonder if his wife knows he's sending crappy letters to people telling them to off themselves.

I've let his wife Kristen know that he's mentally unstable and has been reported to the police for threatening and harassment.
