Cyber Bullying Bill Jan. 1, 2011

Cyber bullying has always been a major issue concerning about the internet. Cyber bullying can lead to serious consequences such as suicides and homicides, and I think that the new laws might be able to prevent some cases from happening, but it needs to take on higher measures to completely prevent such tragedies. I feel that people that bully others are probably cowards or they may feel powerless within the real society that they needed to act like "trolls" to vent out their frustrations that they don't dare to confront. They need to stop doing that because I think it's stupid and pointless trying to make the victims look bad online.
In some cases, cyber-bullying cause unnecessary troubles to other people beside the bullies and the victims. For instance, if you're under the age of 18, your parents are somewhat hold responsible for your action by paying your fine, etc. Furthermore, it goes into your records which wouldn't be goof for your job/college applications. People have the rights to voice their opinions, but when people abuse that rights, it is not only unacceptable, but also a disgrace and involve innocent people for their actions.
