Have you ever heard the quote by Robert Fullgum that says "sticks and stones can break my bones but words will break your heart"? Well this quote is true because recently people have committed suicide because of things said through the internet. like the death of Pheobie prince, and the death of Robert climenti also how some of the state have made this already a law.

I thank my opponent and I'm very sorry for the delay........

Now my opponent said that recently many people have committed suicide because of the things said on the Internet and also provided examples. Now I'm not saying that cyber bullying is good or trying to argue that it is good, I'm simply saying that it should not be a criminal offence. People can use other ways to solve this problem. Like for example, they could build an alarm or a system that monitors things that are said on the Internet, or they could just make the child sign in the parents e-mail so that the parents could get notified and help. But anything is better than to go around trying to capture cyber bullies and waste a long time.

My opponent also said how other states are doing this, but he provide really no source of how many states and whether it is effective or not. But I will say this, that though other states have this law it might not work here in Texas and we're debating, in a overall idea, should cyber bullying be a criminal offence or not.

since my opponent also forfeited the last round please just ignore round two of the debate.

Thank you and vote for the CON side.

I think I'll have fun being a CON. It's too bad I don't match his criteria.
