Police shut down 'bullying' Facebook page
A Facebook page that was being used by a group of students to bully one of their classmates has been shut down.
Rome: A Facebook page that was being used by a group of teenaged students in Italy to bully and harass one of their classmates has been shut down by police, a media report said Saturday.
The Minors' Court in Rome found guilty seven 14-year-old students of online abuse against a boy in their same class.
The bullies created a Facebook page where they harassed the boy, insulting and calling him names, and even threatened him. They invited other viewers to abuse the classmate in the same way, Xinhua reported.
The victim, after six months of persecution, was so scared that he changed his class and later even dropped out of school, preferring to stay home.
The bullies also posted a graphic photo of the victim showing his face eaten up by a "terrible sexual disease".
The victim decided to tell his parents about what he was experiencing. His parents went to the police, who after investigation, decided to block access to the Facebook page.
