Ethics in a Digital Age

In an essay analyze the ethical and legal issues raised by one of the cyberbullying cases described in the article, Cyberbullied to Death: An Analysis of Victims Taken from Recent Events.

In your view, should the harasser in your selected case be held accountable for the victims suicide? Do you see this as a case of wrongful death and/or corruption of a minor, even though the offense took place online? Have you or someone you know ever been the victim of cyberbullying? What ethical norms inform your conduct online?

After reviewing the Chernenko, et al. article, propose your own original policy as a suggestion for school policies that would address how this issue should be both counseled and prevented. Make sure to incorporate properly cited evidence from the Study Materials to support your analysis.
