Florida girl bullied after one cell phone image sent; tragic ending

Dr. Phil appeared on AC360 tonight (Oct 6), talking about the dangers of cyberbullying, partly because they don’t look the victim in the eye. This is a video everyone should see. The basic link is here.

Dr. Phil’s appearance came after Anderson described a case in Florida where a 13 year old girl sent an inappropriate image of herself after prodding from a boyfriend, and it was sent to six schools. Eventually, after the bullying, which the school system dropped the ball on, she took her own life. Later people even wrote bad things on her family’s memorial Myspace page.
