Flower season girl causes death intimidation on social networking sites
British girl sentenced for cyberbullying sets precedent in this type of case On August 21, an eighteen-year-old British girl, Kelly Hutton, became a BritishThe first person sentenced to imprisonment for cyberbullying.
On the 21st, the Worcestershire Criminal Court convicted Kelly of intimidation and harassment, and sentenced her to three months into a youth training center.
In addition, the court issued a restraining order stating that she must not contact the victim Emily Moore by any means for five years, including contact via the Internet and actual contact.
In court, the judge learned that Kelly has been harassing her classmate Emily Moore for the past four years.
In 2005, she was attacked and injured on her way home from school, so she was dropped out of school.
Two years later, she damaged the victim’s home.
This time, Kelly Hutton is even worse, intimidating on social networking site Facebook, threatening to kill Emily.
Two days before the death threat was issued, Kelly Hutton threatened Emily when she met her at the bar.
Kelly Hutton is considered the first offender in the UK to be sentenced to imprisonment for cyberbullying. Emma Jane Krauss, head of the UK’s anti-youth bullying charity “Combat Bullying”, said after the verdict:The verdict of an 18-year-old girl involved in cyberbullying set a significant precedent in similar cases in the UK.
Claus also said: “It must be ordinary school violence. Cyberbullying is growing at a rapid rate, and its harm is more serious than school violence.
“School violence has extended to the dangers of cyber-oppression, pressure, and harm. Experts point out that school-based violence against minors in real life is shifting to the virtual cyber world in large numbers.
With the spread of instant information, blogs and other online communication methods, the phenomenon of “cyberbullying” targeting young people is becoming more and more common, and this behavior is showing more harmful than the actual bullying pressure.
More than 90% of British teenagers go online at home, and more than 60% of them post personal information on social networking sites and make friends and chat.
But in the virtual online world, some social networking sites have unknowingly become carriers of violence, potentially condoning the immorality of some young people.
They send e-mails or messages that are scary, threatened, or harassed, or put embarrassing photos, videos, or sounds online for people to browse, or spread the right and wrong of others online, or make fun of them onlineOthers, rumors, etc.
A British investigative agency report shows that 11% of British youths aged 12 to 15 have experienced online bullying, with the majority of the victims being women.
Among the young people surveyed, many said they had received threatening messages or emails, and more than a quarter said they had been physically assaulted or maliciously wounded online.
Experts point out that cyberbullying insults adolescents creates a huge psychological shadow, and this psychological burden can even exceed bullying in the real world.
In response to the phenomenon of cyberbullying unique to the cyber age, John Carr, chairman of the Security Federation of the Children ‘s Charity Foundation in London, said: “When we were young, we often turned to bullying, and everyone returned to the classroom or returned homeThis kind of bullying incident was also terminated.
But until now, cyberbullying has been uninterrupted for 365 days a year, and it happens a lot every day, which makes people have nowhere to escape.
How to become a hidden youth killer in accordance with the law and legal system is a month before Kelly Hutton was sentenced. A 15-year-old girl from Cheshire, England, was hailed by others on the Bebo social network.Malicious slander, cyberbullying and suicide with excessive painkillers.
When her parents found her, this very young life had left forever.
Robin Kovalsky, a social psychologist at Clemson University in South Carolina, said: “A child who has been deceived is miserable even if he is not known to others. But if the experience isLet thousands of people see that it will be a fatal blow.
The frequent tragedies of “cyberbullying” incidents on social networking sites have produced far more than one or two.
And they are always female, and male teens often become victims of cyberbullying.
A 13-year-old boy from Sutton, in the south of the United Kingdom, was exposed on the Bebo social networking site by his classmates because of his humiliated experience, and he also chose the path of suicide.
The victims of cyberbullying crimes cause severe mental and psychological burdens, and the cases that lead to suicide may even sound extreme, but they are by no means uncommon worldwide.
How to stop cyberbullying from a legal perspective has become a new problem that must be faced by legal circles in various countries.
Thirteen states including the US, Arkansas, New Jersey, and Oregon have established laws to prevent cyberbullying.
The California government also introduced an anti-bullying bill in 2009.
However, some experts have pointed out that these so-called anti-bullying laws are based on the reorganized anti-bullying laws and add the content of “cyberbullying” to them. They are not targeted and cannot achieve the expected results.
Moreover, many of the punishments for cyberbullying against young people are forcing young people who bully others to drop out of school or punish them. For example, the English court announced that the punishment of cyberbullyers is still a minority.
Therefore, in order to stop cyberbullying, a behavior that endangers the healthy growth of young people, in addition to formulating clear, rigorous, and targeted anti-cyberbullying laws and regulations, and also increasing the punishment of offenders, this can make the internetThe virtualized space has become a safe and orderly activity place for young Internet users.
Cyberbullying spreads to the world. Cyberbullying is not just a problem that the British government needs to face. Its increasing harmfulness has attracted the attention of governments around the world.
In the U.S., some possible cyberbullying incidents are equally frightening: a 13-year-old boy in Vermont was suicided by a classmate on the Internet; a 49-year-old woman in Missouri falsely reported on MySpaceThe boy’s identity offered his diligence to a 13-year-old girl, tricked the girl into trust, and abandoned him, causing the girl to kill herself in the bedroom closet.
In Japan, surveys show that 10% of Japanese high school students have received harassment and intimidation from emails, web pages, and blogs.
A 14-year-old girl from a municipal middle school in Saitama, Japan, hanged herself at home last October.
She left a testament to condemn her friends, saying “I want revenge, and I will never forgive (online) those who say bad things about me”. From this point of view, cyberbullying has become a social problem faced by all countries in the Internet age.
