Facebook is a wonderful tool and communication medium for millions of people. Unfortunately, it is also used at times for violence, bullying, and other acts that led to the physical and / or emotional harm to children. In Calabass, California, a 12 year old boy was assaulted by classmates. A news report at Faox News stated that the assault may have been prompted by a posting titled “Kick a Ginger Day” which had something to do with an episode from the cartoon – South Park. Whatever the motivation, middle schools should be a place of safety and education for children rather than locations of assaults and bullying tactics.
