15 Girls Under Investigation For Bullying 12-Year-Old Who Committed Suicide

Listen up, rugrats: you need to cut this shit out. Bullying on social media, I mean. Just stop. And grownups: it’s your responsibility to take bullying seriously. Earlier this week, the body of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick was found at a former cement plant in Lakeland, Florida, where she committed suicide. Rebecca was reported missing on Monday after she failed to come home from school. On Thursday, police announced that 15 teen girls had “absolutely terrorized” Rebecca over social media for over a year, even after she was pulled out of school for homeschooling and deleted her Facebook page. The girls who harassed Rebecca online continued to terrorize the Crystal Lake Middle School tween on Instagram, Ask.fm, and other sites, as recently as four days before her suicide. Laptops and cell phones belonging to 15 of the girls have been confiscated. While, obviously, the person ultimately responsible for committing suicide is the person herself, I bet these girls are wondering whether it was worth it to be so hurtful now that someone has ended up dead. This is yet another example of relentless bullying leading to a life being cut tragically short. It has to stop. It has to. [Raw StoryCBS Local]
