Cyberbullying concerns grow

-A A +A
By The Staff

The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) said cyberbullying is equally to blame in the tragic death of the Rutgers University student who committed suicide on Wednesday.
Teens’ lives today exist in a variety of places such as school hallways, part-time jobs, and friends’ houses. Now many teens also have lives on the Internet. And bullying has followed teens online.
Online bullying, called cyberbullying, happens when teens use the Internet, cell phones, or other devices to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person. Cyberbullying is a problem that affects almost half of all American teens.
Some youth who cyberbully pretend that they are other people online to trick others. They spread lies and rumors about victims, trick people into revealing personal information, send or forward mean text messages and post pictures of victims without their consent.
When teens were asked why they think others cyberbully, 81 percent said that cyberbullies think it’s funny. Other teens believe that youth who cyberbully don’t think it’s a big deal, don’t think about the consequences,  are encouraged by friends, think everybody cyberbullies or think they won’t get caught.
