Once bullied, David Johnson now touts anti-bullying campaign

7:00 AM ET

GLENDALE, Ariz. — David Johnson feels that there is one way in particular that he can help change the world. It’s with the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Johnson would know. While the Arizona Cardinals’ star running back was in elementary school in Clinton, Iowa, there was an older boy who lived in his neighborhood and went to a different school, and that boy bullied Johnson for years. Johnson kept it to himself instead of telling his family. That’s just the type of person Johnson says he is. He’d rather stay quiet

Oh No: Fans Robbed Ethan & Grayson Dolan at the Beach, But the Cyber-Bullying They’re Dealing With Is Just Awful – J

We all know what it’s like to be totally head over heels in love with our favorite celebs, but there’s a fine line between stanning someone and overstepping their privacy. Well, Grayson Dolan and Ethan Dolan found themselves victims of theft at the beach after two girls decided to snag their shirts. The fans did not at all seem to have malicious intentions in mind, but it is safe to say stealing the twins’ clothing was 100% wrong on every level.

It appears as though the two girls were driving down the street when they spotted the Dolan Twins walking to the beach. Like anyone would, the two completely fangirled out on Snapchat before preparing to approach the twins for a photo. Given the fact that Ethan and Grayson are oh so appreciative to their fans, the boys smiled for a photo with the girls. But the fans didn’t

Dozens Take Anti-Cyber Bullying Pledge at City Hall – KTSA

By Pilar Arias

Dozens took the anti-cyberbullying pledge on the steps of City Hall Wednesday, just two weeks before David’s Law is set to go into effect.

“The David’s Law pledge, although intended for youth, allows folks to take ownership of their online identities by promising that they will not cause harm to others through bullying, especially through their digital devices,” David Molak’s mother, Maurine, said during a press conference.

David’s Legacy Foundation revealed a sticker in hopes people will put it on their digital devices to remind them not to use it as a weapon for bullying.

Anti-bullying advocate Kara Weld shared her own personal experience with bullying.

“This cyberbully used vile and hateful language to attack me and the cyberbully frequently urged me to kill myself. I endured this online harassment for seven long months and the laws at the time did

An App That’s Too Honest?

There’s a new app out there that’s paving the way for bullying.

A couple days ago, I was on Facebook just scrolling down and passing the time. A friend of mine posted a picture of a speech bubble and inside that was essentially the digital version of hatemail.

With her being an artist the message essentially summed up to saying that she was a hack with no talent or future.

At the time, I dind’t understand what the message was but knowning that she had a web comic I assumed it was from some hater who read her content.

Turns out, it was someone she knew.

Yes, there’s a new app out there that was released a little less than a year ago but has now

Parents test school liability in bullying and child suicide

CINCINNATI (AP) — The parents of an 8-year-old Ohio boy who hanged himself from his bunk bed with a necktie want school officials held responsible, testing the issue of school liability in suicides blamed on bullying.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of Gabriel Taye against Cincinnati Public Schools and school officials cites repeated examples of Gabriel and others being bullied at his elementary school. They contend school officials knew about the bullying but were “deliberately indifferent,” allowing a “treacherous school environment.”

Knowledge of harassment and failure to do something are among elements set out in a 1999 U.S. Supreme Court ruling for school liability cases.

“The deliberate indifference standard set forth (by the Supreme Court) sets a high bar for plaintiffs,” a 2016 opinion by a three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says. “It requires only that school administrators respond to known peer harassment in a

Report: Cyber-bullying on the rise at middle, high schools

Teenage bullying on smart phone

If you needed any evidence that cyber-bullying is a growing problem for schools and tweens/teens, look no further.

A new study from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics indicates that more than 25 percent of the middle schools and high schools surveyed reported problems with cyber-bullying on their campuses.

The report, entitled “Crime, Violence, Discipline, and Safety in U.S. Public Schools,” was published on July 27.

It looked at incidents of violence at nearly 3,600 public schools during the 2015-16 school year.

Cyber-bullying has increased significantly since the last report was conducted in 2009. In fact, the new report said it’s the leading daily disciplinary problem for middle and high-schoolers.

How bad is it?

Melania Trump ditches fight against cyber-bullying to tackle drug use

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Donald Trump may have become a bit of a Twitter rant pro (covfefe, anyone?), and considering he has used the social media platform to attack everyone from the London Mayor to Chrisy Teigen it was perhaps a tad ironic that his wife, Melania, took such a strong stance on cyber-bullying before her husband became the president.

‘Our culture has gotten too mean and too violent,’ she told a rally crowd before becoming the First Lady. ‘It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is unacceptable when it’s done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.’

She went on to promise a campaign against online bullying, but after seven months in office there has been little else said on the matter – bar her press secretary, Stephanie
