Dear Mr Cameron, I’m writing to address the important issue of Cyber bullying. Unlike normal bullying, Cyber bullying can take place 24/7 using technology like phones and computers. It is also harder to identify the bully due to factors such as blocked numbers or anonymous comments. Right now, anyone over thirteen can create a fake profile on Facebook or Twitter and cyber bully a young person. In the advanced world of today, this is simply unacceptable. According to i-Safe statistics, over half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online, more than 1 in 3 young people have experienced cyber threats online and over 25% of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet. These statistics prove that cyber bullying needs to be put to a stop to help young people all over England. It is unbearable to think of a child as young as eight receiving threats and bullying messages over the internet and feeling unable to tell their parents for fear of the bully and shame. I urge the government to pass laws to protect these young people from ever experiencing the feeling of worthlessness and humiliation at the hands of a bully. Yours sincerely, Ciara
