A newly released report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Electronic Media and Youth Violence: A CDC Issue Brief For Educators and Caregiver, discusses “electronic aggression,” defined as any kind of harassment or bullying (including “teasing, telling lies, making fun of someone, making rude or mean comments, spreading rumors, or making threatening or aggressive comments”) that occurs through email, instant messaging, text messaging, chat rooms, websites, or blogs. Electronic aggression is a growing problem. While Connecticut’s anti-bullying statute, in our view, encompasses online aggression, Connecticut should do more to prohibit—and prevent—cyber bullying.
