Parents outraged about cyber-bullying

There was an ABC story about entire Facebook group has been created as a way
to bully a girl from Martin Middle School in Raleigh.
Members of the group were inviting kids at the school to join the
cyber-bullying page and show they agree with the personal insult.
One mom found this invitation on her son's computer. Another mom went to
Wake County schools to have them intervene. Principal contacted parents of
four students who joined the cyber-bullying page.

Officials say cyber-bullying in some cases is a violation of the state's
cyber-stalking law, which carries misdemeanor penalties.

Michael Evans with Wake Public Schools said:" "It's not technically the
purview of the school system for somebody to do something outside on
Facebook, using their own computer".
"It's not spying," He said. "It's keeping abreast of what your student is
doing online and where they are going."
