(narr) ... A TARGET OF OLD-FASHIONED TEEN BULLYING ...BUT WITH A HIGH

TECH TWIST.

(jg) " sometimes i don't feel safe going out of my house like after

they just talked to me online...
JENNIFER IS ONE OF HUNDREDS, PERHAPS THOUSANDS OF HIGH SCHOOL KIDS BEING HARRASSED BY THEIR SCHOOLMATES IN CYBER SPACE, OFTEN THROUGH EMAIL, INSTANT MESSAGING AND CELL PHONES. IT'S A FAST-GROWING TREND THAT EXPERTS SAY IS MORE HARMFUL THAN TYPICAL SCHOOLYARD BULLYING.

(Alane Fagin, Exec Director CAPS,Child Abuse Prevention Services)

Being bullied in cyberspace can be extraordinarily devastating. We have kids who are really afraid to go to school as a result of the bullying. They live in isolation, they're not sure who their friends are.

(Julia Tice ) they just started making fun of the way I looked and it just went on and on and I just didn't know what to do..

(vo julia and rob tubbs walking in hall)


JULIA TICE AND ROB TUBBS HAVE ALSO BEEN VICTIMS OF CYBER CRUELTY .... ATTACKS THAT, UNLIKE SCHOOLYARD TAUNTS, FOLLOW THEM HOME.

(rob tubbs )

it's my personal space and its the computer and I'm supposed to feel semi safe with the computer and I'm at home. and they made me feel unsafe.

(Alene Fagin )

There's no safe place anymore. . you can be bullied 24/7...24 hours a day. 7 days a week, even in the privacy of your own bedroom.

(narr)

(Law & Order clip) (NARR) ..AND THERE'S MORE...

(CLIP) " they took pictures."



(NARR) AS THIS CLIP FROM LAW AND ORDER DRAMATIZES, CAMERA PHONES ARE

ALSO BECOMING WEAPONS FOR BULLIES ...

(CLIP) "you know britany sent that to about 20 different people."



( Ismael Villafane Principal, Guilderland High School) they're

concerned about the cell phones, now everybody can take a picture, and automatically, you don't even have to download into your computer, you can just email it from your cell phone to a computer or somebody else's email.

(narr) SOME PICTURES EVEN WIND UP ON WEBSITES, WITH INVITATIONS FOR

PEOPLE TO LOG ON AND MAKE COMMENTS. OFTEN KIDS USE ALIASES, WHICH MEANS THE BULLY IS DIFFICULT TO CATCH ... ANOTHER SOURCE OF ANXIETY FOR VICTIMS.

(Jennifer ) I have gone to teachers, I have gone to my parents, // They

can't stop it, like if a kid wants to threaten you. they will. they keep doing it and they have.

(narr) FOR JENNIFER'S PARENTS, THE HARRASSMENT HAS TAKEN A TOLL.



(Joanne Gabriele speaks ) it affected our whole family, I mean we had sleepless nights. We worried about her, we worried about her socially. we worried about her emotionally.

(narr) SINCE CYBERSPACE IS TECHNICALLY OFF SCHOOL GROUNDS; MANY

PRINCIPALS FEEL THEIR HANDS ARE TIED.

( alene fagin Child Abuse Prevention) Cyber bulling is under the radar

of adults, school administrators. However it is on the rise and it is something that we all need to take a good look at and deal with it.
(narr)
BUT SOME PRINCIPALS ARE DEALING WITH IT -- WORKING WITH KIDS, PARENTS, INTERNET PROVIDERS AND EVEN POLICE -- TO PROTECT STUDENTS.
(Ismael Villafane Principal, Guilderland High School ) we want them to know that if they come to us, we'll follow up. and not only follow up, but we're going to get back to them and give them some closure.
