On my previous discussion I mentioned about this lady got bullied by a bunch of middle school kids on the bus. I deeply disgusted the act of those students, and I encourage local school authority to investigate such matter and give them appropriate punishment as needed. With that video posted in youtube, it attracts the attention internationally, and many people voluntarily donated money to help Karen Klein as the victim of this bully. Many people parents wrote letters to apologize for the behavior of their kids too. Just imagine the power of internet, it bring in all the people around the states, even from foreign countries to amass the power, and to condemn the bullies, and help the victim to see there are still many good people out there to help.

it is great that some kind of justice prevail for the poor lady. This is 1 example how internet has helped people getting their justice. If you remember a few months back, there was a bullying case involve an asian kid by a few bully. He was punched, kick, shoved and pushed even after that kid tells them "enough"

The power of the internet is great. It allows many people to tease, insult, and bully not only our children, but many other people in the world. It allows us to influence other parts of the world. I am furious at what some people do on the internet. But, the power of the internet is not only used in bad ways. As you said, if many people came together, it could change laws, deliver words to the world. You are blessed to have so many people support you in this struggle. Good luck on stopping these bullies. God bless you!

I saw the video, I just would not believe how children can turn to be so cruel. I hope this children will be taught a lesson from what they did. Internet is indeed a powerful tool.

Internet indeed has helped millions of people in one way or another. Well it made Bill Gates rich anyway and it made us to have a chance to earn as well hahaha. Anyway about that particular incident, it is great that some kind of justice prevail for the poor lady. This is 1 example how internet has helped people getting their justice. If you remember a few months back, there was a bullying case involve an asian kid by a few bully. He was punched, kick, shoved and pushed even after that kid tells them "enough". What i don't understand is, they bully this kid, took a video and post on youtube. What were they thinking? They will become celebrity? No, they end up in trouble as it became police case.

Yes, kingparker, the internet has become a powerful tool for bringing together people from all over the world. This tool has been used both for good and for bad. It is wise to recognize that no matter how it is used, it is powerful. Do you know, specifically, what happened to the children who bullied Karen Klein?
