"NPR’s “On Point” on the Rutgers Suicide, Cyberbullying, and Internet Crime Law"

Orin Kerr has this post at The Volokh Conspiracy, discussing his appearance on the show:

Interestingly, I was on the same radio program back in 2003 making philosophically similar points in a totally different context. Back then, the issue was the Patriot Act, and there was a lot of hysteria about government surveillance. On the show, I tried to counsel caution, focus on what was actually in the law, draw analogies to off-line conduct, and make sure we weren’t letting our fears get the best of us. (I join at the 16-minute mark.) Today, the issue was cyberbullying and a criminal case that has a lot of people very upset. On the show, I tried to counsel caution, focus on what facts were actually known, draw analogies to off-line conduct, and make sure we weren’t letting our passions get the best of us.

After 23 years in juvenile court, I believe that teenagers often learn from the experiences of their peers, not just from being lectured by those in authority. Consequently, “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” was published in January, 2010.
Endorsed by Dr. Phil on April 8, 2010 ["Bullied to Death" show], “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” presents real cases of teens in trouble over their online and cell phone activities. Civil & criminal sanctions have been imposed on teens over their emails, blogs, text and IM messages, Facebook entries and more. TCI is interactive and promotes education & awareness so that our youth will begin to “Think B4 U Click.”

Thanks for looking at “Teen Cyberbullying Investigated” on http://www.freespirit.com [publisher] or on http://www.askthejudge.info [a free website for & about teens and the law].

Regards, -Judge Tom
