Maybe they should realize this is a social problem and not a criminal one, and let police deal with actual criminals.
 
Abuse is not a social problem. it IS criminal, and perhaps that should be reflected better. How about trolling to make a person ineligible to higher education? Might not be fair, but a strong wake up call is becoming more and more adamant. people hide behind freedom of speech. I believe in freedom of speech, but I also believe in being held accountable for the words a person speaks.
 
+Simon Stone i agree. There should always be freedom of speech. However, people should also be accountable for what they say.
