To further prove my point about the detriments of cyberbullying in my previous blog post, on Monday two teens, ages 14 and 12, were charged as juveniles with felony aggravated stalking and online harassment towards 12-year old Rebecca Sedwick, according to a release from Polk County sheriff’s office. According to Grady Judd, the sheriff in Polk County, Fl., the teens “repeatedly and maliciously harassed” Rebecca, perhaps what triggered the young girl to jump to her death from a tower on September 9th in Lakeland Florida. Rebecca was believed to be targeted because she had dated one of her attacker’s old boyfriend, according to multiple reports. Witnesses told police that the teen sent Rebecca abusive online messages like calling her “ugly” and go so far as to telling her to “drink bleach and die”. The two girls actually got into a physical fight with her after threatening to beat up Rebecca. On Saturday, the 14-year old clearly expressed her remorse by publishing a post on Facebook that reads exactly, “Yes ik I bullied REBECCA nd she killed her self but IDGAF<3”. Based on her numerous grammar mistakes and nonchalance to the whole ordeal, I think it is safe to say she is just too young and immature to fully grasp the concept of what she has done and the lives she has effected. This article really made me think about the future of cyberbullying as the development of Web 2.0 progresses and all of the technical advances that have yet to come. It is in kid’s nature be impulsive and do things without considering the consequences of their actions. The idea of sending my kids to a school where kids have access to multiple bullying platforms frightens me. I hope by then creators will find a way to stop this ugliness that is taking over young people’s worlds. This incident was completely preventable if the assailants were stopped before it was too late.
