Twelve-year-old Rebecca Sedwick committed suicide after months of relentless bullying. Two teen girls have been charged with a felony in connection with her death.
Authorities are now identifying them as 14-year old Guadelupe Shaw and 12-year-old Katelyn Roman. And their bullying may have all started out over a boy who dated both Sedwick and Shaw. That boy, teenager John Borgen, has decided to speak out.
“It shocked me, it made me mad. You know, because she should have just told somebody,” Borgen says
“This bullying has gone on since last November, both in person at school and over the cyber world, “ Judd says. “There's a significant problem and it started at home.”
On the vanguard of this, Criminal Defense Attorney and CNN Legal Analyst Mark O'Mara says the Internet can be used as a deadly weapon that parents should monitor to make sure their children are using responsibly. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)
Drafting a new law that would hold parents accountable for cyber bullying, O’Mara says, “Parents have the responsibility for their children that now extends to a brand new landscape, the Internet.”
