By now we all know that bullies don’t just do their dirty work on the school playground, roughing up smaller kids for their lunch money. Bullies attack their prey 24/7 via texts, emails, calls and social media. The really creative ones find nifty ways to invade privacy with webcams and other video devices, as we saw in the tragic incident at Rutgers. Bullying is a big news topic these days. Even People magazine has devoted ink to the problem.
