Cyberbullying

This past week, I spoke to another group about online child safety. While many parents are all too aware of the risks children face online and with Internet connected smart devices, our children are still being victimized at an alarming rate.

Two white male juveniles were taken into custody over the weekend after threatening to harm a student via a social media networking site. The two fourteen-year-old boys were students of Groves Middle School and were making terroristic threats to another middle school student via Facebook, according to Lt. Kirk Rice of Groves Police Department.

"The threat was reported on Friday," Rice said. "Two eighth-grade students took part in making threats to do harm via Facebook. The victim was a sixth-grade student."
