“Cyber bullying of the young is much more common that most adults realize, according to
Susan England Lord.
An extension associate professor for the WVU Extension Service, England,-Lord has researched
the extent and nature of cyber bullying and made a presentation to the legislature’s Judicial
Committee on Tuesday.
Fifty- eight percent of students in grades 4-8 and 53 percent of high school students have experienced cyber bullying, England-Lord reported..
The Article mentions anything from a threatening text message or something written about them on
a blog…”Someone would hack into their MY Space or Facebook and say something or send embarrassing comments or photos.”
“If you look at something like TOPIX, they destroy people with words.”…“I don’t know ifthey realize it or they do it because they can.”
England Lord was the principal investigator on the study, assisted by David Hartley, Fhonda Colemen, Mark Whitt, Dr. Pat Nester and Debbie McDonald..

“DELEGATE, Linda Phillips and Daniel Hall have been working with me on this for a couple of years.”
“They h ave been looking for a way to combat what is happening and they have been using my research.”
Some states have laws to cope with the problem……LOOKS LIKE IT IS COMING SOON TO A TOPIX
NEAR YOU.:)

Get outside, some. Quit playing detective by following a little girl to other forums and trying to find out about her.

Cyberbullying & stalking is really a very serious matter when it comes to young people. Well, it's bad for some adults, too, but children are highly susceptible to it.

Has anyone considered the amount of time and money it would take away from law enforcement/courts to go after cyberbullies? Currently, many cities are cutting back on their police/fire departments because they simply have no money. Does anyone really think that cyberbullying ranks up there with murder, robbery, drugs, rape, assault/battery, etc? Even if laws are passed to safeguard against cyberbullying, how often do you think they will be enforced?

With all due respect, I don't think you're quite exactly grasping the matter fully.

A lot of high school kids try to destroy one another by placing damaging rumors and downright lies on the internet. It's largely a product of poor parenting.

A large majority of it is not high school kids, it is from old or thirty something year old adults who are very childish and have the thoughts of a sixteen year old. Some people never grow up and you can't fix crazy.

Cyber bullying laws are meat to protect children. I have never posted anything about an underage kid and I think that is done almost entirely by other kids. That being said I will never fear posting the truth about some other people because you cannot be jailed for telling the truth and the truth must never be silenced.

well, then how bout someone doing a little checking on you and then posting anything and everything they can dig us , then adding a lot to it to exagerrate it and see how much you like it. If all the bull I read on here about people is the truth and not just a lot of jealous bull then lord help us all. Most of the slander on here is a pack of lies some jealous person has made up.
