Olympic high jumper outs online stalker on Facebook4/26/2012
Ariane Friedrich can clear a high bar - the German record-holder has high jumped 6 feet, 9 inches - but she has a low threshold for sexually explicit harassment. So, the 2008 Olympian and 2012 medal contender didn't just file a police complaint when she was sent a picture of a man's genitals on Facebook - she also outed the offender online. That's triggered a national debate in Germany, where privacy laws are so strict that names of even convicted criminals are not published. In the emotional debate, some have said it's Friedrich who's out of bounds, and coach Gunter Eisinger acknowledged, "We don't need any stress right now." Maybe it's time to get off Facebook.
