In the last few weeks, I have come across a slew of cyber bullying cases, each becoming more serious than the last. But it was the story of a young girl named Phoebe Prince that really hit home.
Phoebe Prince, 15, committed suicide due to what reports are saying was a case of cyber bullying. The young teen was victim to harassing Internet and text messages from alleged older ‘mean girls’ who were unhappy when Prince began seeing one of their peers.
Who would you say is to blame, if anyone, in a case as sensitive as this one? Should the parents of the scorned girl realized that she was battling depression or should school officials have taken it upon themselves to stop the in-school bullying?
