Teen cyberbullies charged

Among other things, this disturbing incident shows clearly that cyberbullying has nothing to do with gender. Three teenage girls, two 14 and one 13, "were arrested Tuesday on charges that they punched and kicked another girl and recorded the beating so they could broadcast it online," the Associated Press reports. Police on Long Island in New York said the video, uploaded to two Web sites, "showed the three girls beating a 13-year-old girl Dec. 18 at a school." The three girls were charged with juvenile delinquency and attempted assault, and the police are investigating who videotaped the beating, the AP adds.
