DescriptionThis essay hovers over the issue of cyber bullying today and although it is a pressing issue, it should not be considered a criminal offense.
“There is a sacred realm of privacy for every man and woman where he makes his choices and decisions-a realm of his own essential rights and liberties into which the law, generally speaking, must not intrude.”- Geoffrey Fisher
We would like to offer some definitions provided by Merrim Webster Dictionary
-Cyber bullying: the electronic posting of mean-spirited messages about a person (as a student) often done anonymously
-Harassment (either harris-meant or huh-rass-meant) n. the act of systematic and/or continued unwanted and annoying actions of one party or a group, including threats and demands. The purposes may vary, including racial prejudice, personal malice, an attempt to force someone to quit a job or grant sexual favors, apply illegal pressure to collect a bill, or merely gain sadistic pleasure from making someone fearful or anxious.
We base our case on assuming that Rep. Linda Sanchez, a Democrat in the United States House of Representatives. Her bill is designed to prevent cyber bullying, making it punishable by a fine and up to two years in prison.
We negate the resolution that cyber bullying should be a criminal offense for the following three contentions.
Contention I-Government Inefficiency
In Arizona State Law Journal, Todd D. Erb, a graduate of Sandra Day O’Connor of Law at Arizona State University said “Strengthing civil and criminal judicial remedies are not appealing for two primary reasons. First the stakes are much higher for children in such proceedings. Convictions would show up on criminal records and could affect a student’s chances to get admitted into college or the military after high school. Second, there is not a structure already in place to track bullying speech on web sites throughout the community. Asking police officers and judges to make time in their daily schedules to address these comparatively petty issues would not make for good public policy or efficient government. “In 2009, the estimated number of violent crime offenses was 1,318,398 from the U.S. Department of Justice. Wouldn’t you say that the judicial branch of the government would start being overloaded by the amount of people added to the prison system from Rep.Sanchez’s law? The population of United States prisons and jails in 2008 was 2,304,115 inmates and the price to arrest, prosecute, and take care of these inmates cost the taxpayer $214,494,106,000, both statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics. What if we were to add cyber bullying convictions to the list? We would be adding 1 million inmates to our state prisons, and the price of this per year is $22.6 billion, statistics provided by America’s Children, Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the Cyber bullying research center. Todd D. Erb of the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University said in Spring of ...
