Cyber Bulling, Let's Rethink This | Blue Oklahoma
Before beginning this conversation, I want to state that, as a young boy in the 60's, I was the victim of bullying at school by boys larger and meaner than myself. From living it firsthand, I know what it is like to experience the dread of going to school knowing that I would suffer physical and emotional abuse. I have painful memories of those years because there was no one looking after me. I am very clear that school safety is an important issue and that bullying is something that should not be tolerated. To this end, Oklahoma has enacted the School Bullying Protection Act. State Senator Andrew Rice is proposing some additional legislation that would add cyber bullying to this act. Based upon my experiences, you might expect that I would support this act; but, I cannot just yet.
