#DeEscalateDontKill

Bullying has always been a problem in our school systems and on our neighborhood blocks, but thanks to cell phones, texting and the Internet, a new epidemic is on the rise — cyber bullying. Statistics report that over half of our teens have been antagonized online and just as many have participated in bullying. The effects of this harassment, whether delivered through technology or on the school's playground, often leads to suicide, which is also on the rise, ranking number three in causes of death in teens behind accidents and homicide. BET.com is dedicated to correcting this issue and providing services for parents and victims of bullying.
