I am writing this letter because I want to raise public awareness about Cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is a crime. The exploitation of online technology for deviant purposes continues to be a problem as legislators provide guidance and direction to local and state authorities confronted with “cyberbullying”. The “Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act,” proposed by California Congresswoman, Linda T. Sanchez in May of 2008, amended Chapter 41 of title 18 of the U.S. Code which criminalizes cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is deliberate and hostile behavior and is not only a problem for our kids but is also a problem for adults as well. The National Crime Prevention Council's definition of cyber-bullying is, "when the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person”. Cyber harassment may occur by adult individuals posting rumors or gossip that instigate others to dislike and gang up on the target. by making them the subject of ridicule in forums, and posting false statements as fact while aimed at humiliation. I personally know someone who had a co-worker that use his pictures and name for an online dating site. Internet crimes can be reported to local authorities and can easily be reported to the FBI at www.ic3.gov . For more information about how you can help prevent cyberbullying log on to The National Crime Prevention Council’s website at www.ncpc.org/cyberbullying .

IF YOU ARE BEING HARRASSED IN ANY LOCAL DISCUSSION FORUMS, REPORT IT AT ONCE. YOU DON'T HAVE TO TAKE THIS!

"This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in a previous session of Congress. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed bills and resolutions that haven't passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not come up for debate under a new number in the next session."

Sooo many misinformed individuals out there!!!

Sooo sad...The facts are placed in front of you and you still can't come to terms with the fact that the bill did not pass.

If I had a reason to bully you, I probably would due to your ignorance to the law or lack of it!

Now go crawl back under the rock you came from!

Now Now cowboy.. everyone makes a mistake typing... it could have been an accident not caught until after it was posted... happens to me all the time.... While alabama people are imbred and stupid like the ones who started the Jim Ingram topic... A simple typo doesn't mean that's the case... and if still feel the need to bully someone as old as you are then you have a personal issue... and the internet is where you do your bullying.. you are probably a very insecure person...
