    Parents Take Extreme Action On Faceless Bullying
    May 20, 2013

    THOUSANDS of anxious parents are hiring private investigators to track down anonymous bullies who terrorize and stalk their children on Facebook and other social networks.

    Fed up with a lack of action from schools and police, parents are paying up to $800 a day to have cyber-security experts confront the bullies, in a desperate bid to protect their vulnerable kids.

    One prominent private investigator said he received three calls a day from parents willing to do anything they could to stop the online taunts, the violent threats, and the intimidation that remains rife and unfettered on social networks.

    And it's working.

    When confronted by private investigators, shown the files highlighting their ugly behavior, and threatened with police action, the vast majority of bullies cease their online abuse.

    Today The Daily Telegraph launches a campaign to cramp the style of those bullies who gutlessly hide behind anonymous social network profiles in a bid to intimidate and bully victims online.

    The campaign seeks to put pressure on social network sites to become more proactive in pursuing and banning bullies who use anonymous profiles.

    It also aims to boost the resources and cyber-bullying expertise in police and education departments, and foster a working relationship between governments, schools and social network companies. And it will look at the wider impact of bullying on children and their families.

    "The social networks are in the best position to track down these modern day bullies and I'd welcome any measures they take to address the problem," Premier Barry O'Farrell said of The Daily Telegraph's campaign.

    "There is also a role for greater cooperation between police and the networks and for parents, teachers and friends to stay vigilant and report any examples of cyber bullying to authorities."

    Former AFP investigator Jason King said the pursuit of Facebook bullies was now the mainstay of his private investigations operation, given the flood of inquiries he receives. "I get three calls a day about it, and the youngest I've had is about 11-12. And I take on 50 per cent of them," he said.

    "There are two things I do. Either I put some stuff together and send it to the family, so they can choose what to do with the information, or we take it to the school or police to deal with.

    "Some are already known to the parents and the kid. They come and say 'look, our Julie is being harassed by Jennifer at school, can you prove it'. Some are completely anonymous.

    "I've also done a fair few hate pages as well, with families who are grieving contacting me to determine who has set up a Facebook site targeting them. Most of them are unknown to the family; they do it because they can."

    The private investigators who spoke with The Daily Telegraph claim both schools and police had failed to act after complaints of bullying had been raised, a similar allegation made by the parents of 13-year-old Sydney girl Madeleine Milne, who committed suicide after bullies relentlessly pursued her.

    Maddy died on April 25, just a few days before the start of the school term.

    Nina Hobson, director of investigations group Meridian Services, said cyber bullies were quickly jolted into reality when confronted by a private investigator on their doorstep.

    The former child protections investigator, who also operates an education and awareness program called Space Safe Kidz in schools, said parents came to her with no options left on the table.

    "We've recently done one with a Year 11 girl who was being stalked on Facebook. We traced the guy and presented it to the family," she said.

    "The family didn't want the girl to be caught up in a criminal investigation because it was an important year at school, but they wanted it to stop. So we approached the person and said 'this is your opportunity for this to stop ... we know who you are, and this will be passed to the police if you don't stop'. The guy stopped."

    The cyber security expert believes Facebook and Twitter should remove the rights for customers to remain anonymous if they are found to be bullying other Facebook users.

    Facebook did not respond to The Daily Telegraph's questions.

    They are only tracking down the people that are not covering their tracks well. Install virtualbox,then windows xp. And use tor browser inside of it, then these PI's won't be able to track you down then unless you give out real info.

    The main issue is the lack of proper diet in today's youth, I bet the majority of kids commiting suicide lack enough omega 3 in their diet. Lower levels of omega 3 has been linked to increased suicide rate.

    Also they should be locked up for blackmail, they have no proof what so ever, unless the person is making a video or on webcam if they actually posted the content.

    Is that a magnificent sense of sarcasm or some fact you just pulled up your sleeve?

    First of all, lack of a proper diet does not happen in every country; while it is already known and it has been seen across USA/UK the most, it does not apply to everywhere.

    Secondly, the lack of omega 3... I can pull up tons of articles which could relate the lack of a nutrient to something "bad". There are no fucking deep scientific studies to proof that. While having a balanced diet containing everything (including omega3) will definately be the best option, lacking a nutrient will not have a direct impact in kids suiciding, honestly, there are tons more things affecting it...

    At last... CULTURE MOTHERFUCKER. that is the main root of all problems, how cultures have developed and how fucked up we've become in some countries. Now you tell me if the lack of omega 3 has a bigger impact in kids suicide than a kid listening to "dark" music and reading shit over the net because he cannot stand his dad hitting his mom. There are ton more factors than diet which are (to me) a lot more related to kids problems.

    Your family culture is definitely the key to life... if you have some fucked up parents who hit you, give you shitty food, and do not give you love, you will most likely go down, and that is a 10 time bigger fact than omega 3.

    Anyways, just my opinion, social culture and family culture have the biggest impact on us.

    a "lack of omega-3"?... is that what they are calling it now?
    i thought it was caused by:

    "dungeons & dragons"

    or...

    "the satanic influence in rock & roll"

    or...

    "heavy metal music"

    but it seems that kids just aren't eating enough fish.
