County Executive Picente went on to say “Children have the right to go to school without fear. Parents have the right to send them there without fearing for them. Social networks shouldn’t be a place people go to abuse, torment or terrify others. As a community we are better than that. This legislation is the right way to start to combat this societal problem.” LMAO :) AWWW thats right start with this law.

And it gets better "As we have seen throughout society, the harm inflicted from bullying is a serious matter. Far too often, the person being bullied resorts to suicide as a means of escaping the relentless abuse. Unfortunately, bullies like many other criminals, have adopted modern innovations as a means to committing their crimes. This legislation is a positive step toward protecting those who are victimized by tormentors using cyberspace to inflict serious and, sometimes deadly, harm." District Attorney Scott McNamara. Well then why dont you prosecute N.Y. Penal Law § 240.30????

“Since 2012 this was very much a grassroots’ effort. Residents were involved in every step of this process from their feedback to their input in the way the law should be written. This is a problem that affects all of Oneida County. Bullying has gone from the schoolyard to the internet and there is no respite for victims from their perpetrators. The bully now can wrap him or herself in anonymity and suffer no consequences for their actions. This law is another step in protecting children and their families from unrelenting abuse.”– Oneida County Legislator Harmony Speciale. And where in the law does it violate right to privacy? Please point out whwere in the law it allows for illegal search or tracking of a computer?

Make no mistake, I support a law that provides a benefit to our youth who are being bullied, I reject the needless media and vote grabbing BS that plays politics. The idea is a grand balloon and whats real is a ball of rubber. Use your heads people.

or to be initiated by mechanical or electronic means, makes a telephone call with no purpose of legitimate conversation------conversation is spoken word which does not apply to text nor email THEREFORE, the law(had it been fully thought through) could/should be an amendment to the current law which amends the means rather than the intent. The intent BTW is is also written in the current law "no purpose of legitimate conversation" police can(and/do/are) able to trace our cyber activity. What they can charge with the information is another book :)

Even more appropriate is to address the circumstance these "bullies" are living in. Are their parents providing the basics? Are there two parents(yes, two responsible parents has been proven to be the most nurturing environment to allow for a positive self worth)? Are they receiving proper nutrition,supervision and care? Yes this is a problem of society. Address that. The law focuses on the result not the cause.
