(Phoenix, Ariz. – May 30, 2008) Attorney General Terry Goddard today kicked off National Internet Safety month by encouraging young people to take the Megan Pledge and take a stand against cyberbullying.
“Kids no longer need muscles to bully and torment their peers,” Goddard said. “Some young people use Web sites, cell phones, instant messaging, chat rooms and blogs to harass, threaten and ridicule. The impact on the victim can be devastating and even tragic. There are steps parents and their children can take to stop Internet bullying.”
