I thank CON for creating this debate, seeing as I am the PRO in this debate it obviously means that I am meant to argue that Cyber bullying should be a criminal offense. So that is exactly what I shall do.

CON said the first round was meant to be just for introductions so I will introduce myself, I am BillBonJovi.

OK, CON please start your argument...

Seeing as my opponent forfeited the last round I will just state my opinion of cyber bulling.

A lot of people get on the electronic medium and think that they can send whatever e-mails they want and they're anonymous. The reality is we need to take responsibility and care for each other. We all have to treat each other with respect

The internet is the new playground. So let's get some ground rules in terms of how we treat each other
Cyber bullying is very pervasive and it is, from my perspective, devastating on employees and on students and we need to do something about it.

If the bullies are not talked then they will continue to think they can get away with it. Action is required.

Once again my opponent forfeited the last round so now I guess I will just provide evidence that most other people believe Cyber bullying should be a criminal offense.

An online Poll was made about whether Cyber bullying should be a criminal offense and many people have already voted.

Reference here: http://www.sheridanmedia.com...

Out of over 300 votes:
73% think that Cyber bullying should be a criminal offence
24% think that Cyber bullying should NOT be a criminal offence
4% are undecided

It's clear that most people in general think it's time cyber bulling is to become a criminal offence therefore governments should make laws about what people in general want.
