Asked by: stephannoi
  • Yes,they even deserve life sentence

    I mean if you abused someone until they commit suicide,then probably i would considered that person is very mean and cruel.Yes,people have responsibility of their own action and word that they spread it out.I think it's the time that we should censored free speech and make hate speech illegal internet.

  • You can't physically harm someone online.

    Violence definition: behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

    The most harm cyberbullying can cause is hurting someone mentally, this isn't good, but it's not violent, as they are not hurting or damaging anyone physically, and that is what the definition of violence is.

  • This is to far

    I mean it is bad how people cyberbully. But there not hurting somone physicly .Listen feelings arnt violent they are just feelings. They shouldnt dictate whether someone goes to jail or not. These are just my opinions you may or may not agree with them but ok. Thank you

    awesome pants.

  • Nothing Near Being Worth Government Action

    Cyber bullies can't physically harm you. They can only use their words. In america we have freedom of speech, so saying something on the internet, even if it's hurtful, cannot be punished by law unless it's a direct threat. Punishing cyberbullies directly conflicts with freedom of speech. Also cyber-bullying isn't like harassment. Unlike harassment, with cyber-bullies you can choose not to look at the mean words and you can even block them from finding you.

  • Obviously not violent.

    It shouldn't even be a crime, much less a violent one. It would violate basic freedom of speech. Threats on the other hand are a different story, but are still not "violent." Most websites have moderators that prevent most of it anyway, and social media sites are allowed to be taken care of by school administration.
