I personally believe there needs to be stricter laws governing this sort of thing. While I have never personally been a victim of cyber bulling myself, I am not a stranger to bullying at all. A cyber bully is worse in my opinion because they can hide, however cowardly, behind a screen. This sort of attack could go on forever if not stopped. The textbook talks about not making it a criminal law because of this issue of "free speech". When speech becomes hateful to the point of someone taking there own life it stops becoming free speech and turns into intentional harm. Schools and parents needs to crack down on bullies and on the victims who often do not seek help until it becomes public.
