• Teen Cyberbullying Investigated as seen on Dr. Phil

    Date: 10.22.10 | by Judge Tom.

    Judge Tom Jacobs, the creator and moderator of this site, appeared as a guest on Dr. Phil on April 8, 2010. The issue discussed was bullying and the recent tragic suicide of Phoebe Prince in Massachusetts who was bullied to death.  Read more about Phoebe Prince and the teenagers now facing criminal charges.

    Judge Tom’s latest book Teen Cyberbullying Investigated, published and released earlier this year by Free Spirit Publishing, is full of cases and examples of cyberbullying by teens who were arrested, expelled, sued and faced all sorts of consequences for their online behavior. Similar to Phoebe’s story, there have been other devastating cases of teens taking their own lives after being repeatedly harassed and bullied, both online and off. Be aware and sensitive to how your words and conduct may affect another person. As the main message of Teen Cyberbullying Investigated communicates, “Think B4 U Click”.

      Glad to see Dr. Phil is putting himself to some use. I don’t watch his show too much but I will definitely tune in to this episode.

      I am glad there is more headway into this. Cyber-bullying is no different than a gangter trying to mess with you on the streets. And should be criminally tried more often.

      People have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, by Cyber-bullying, you are violating someone’s civil rights.
