      I think so too.  Bullying has gotten out of control.  I think teachers need to be able to break up a fight without worrying about legal repercussions, or also forcefully move a student out of a situation before it escalates to a fight.

      But that's a little off topic.  People think that being "online" means they can get away with behavior they otherwise probably wouldn't do.  Just remember the youtube girl who made the racist rant- http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/2 … d%3D137330
