Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—Among books recently published on this topic, this one distinguishes itself by covering more than 50 actual court cases involving teenagers. A note on the back states that the offensive language is quoted from court transcripts and should be taken in context. Although Judge Jacobs assures teenagers of their protected legal rights, especially First Amendment rights, the hearings are a sobering reminder of the real dangers and legal consequences of cyberbullying. He admits that laws differ from state to state and judges in one court will hand down different decisions from those in another. Cyberbullies are warned to expect the unexpected. Some of the cases were still pending at the time of publication. Although the text is explicitly addressed to teenagers, it would be helpful to school administrators who could refer to the court cases when dealing with cyberspace misuse and School Authorized Use Policies (AUPs). Crime/Justice and Participation in Government courses could use the questions and prompts posed at the end of each chapter for class discussion. Although further resources and Web sites are extensive, some legal journals would not be readily available to high school students. The layout includes sidebars, photos, and graphics. Promoting the values of civility and ethical behavior makes this book an even more timely and valuable purchase.—Peggy Fleming, Churchville-Chili High School, Churchville, NY

From Booklist

Like Toney Allman’s Mean Behind the Screen (2009), this title deals with the hot, contemporary topic of online teen harassment, by both teens and by adults. The author, a former judge, focuses on recent landmark court cases, many of them still pending, and in an informal, interactive style, each chapter discusses one case in detail, bringing together the rights of the victim as well as those of the perpetrator. He then moves from the particulars to the general issues and asks readers, “What would you decide in this case?” Whether the case is about using a cell phone to send nude photos of a friend, a personal attack on a teacher, or posting a fake profile online, Jacobs encourages readers to consider the viewpoints of victim, perpetrator, and bystander (“Have you ever sent a bullying personal message, all over your school?”). Each chapter includes a bibliography of articles and Web sites and interactive questions sure to spark more discussion. “Think before you click!” sums up the cautionary advice. Grades 7-12. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for all teens and their parents. It's written by an expert in this field and a former juvenile court judge in AZ. It is an awesome insight to what happens when you do things on the Internet and push that send button. There is no going back once that is done and Judge Jacobs explores court cases of teens and what their consequences were! Should be required reading for teens in every school!

Format: Paperback
I have some interest in this cyberbullying because I write about education-related issues, but also because I have been trying to gain a better understanding of social networking. Judge Jacob's book explains the ramifications of teen cyberbullying in a very readable format. While Judge Jacobs apparently served on the bench for a long time, he has written a book that is not overly drowned in legalese.

With respect to cyberspace, issues of free speech may extend off-campus to social networking tools and Web sites. This book mentions several examples including cases of derogatory and misleading information about teachers and students to threats to pull "another Columbine" to tamer incidents such as comments that would appear on student evaluations of teachers at the college level.

The major contention from reading the case examples and the rulings is the level of damage or disruption caused by the activity. In some cases, as you will read, the school district won, and expelled offenders. However, in others, the student won, and school districts were forced to pay the student's legal fees. School districts are aptly warned about improper punishments, too.

After reading this book, I read about a cyberbullying case on the editorial page of the Rutgers Daily Targum, the main campusdaily newspaper, where a high school suspended a student who had posted disparaging comments about a teacher--they were on the line of "she's the worst teacher I ever had." The school also reacted by removing the student from honors and advanced placement classes, which seems excessive. In this case the student had her day in court and won.

I recommend this book to school officials as well as parents who are concerned about their son's or daughter's use of the Internet. It will also provide sufficient warning to potential cyberbullies.

Judge Jacobs explores the most contemporary issues of our everyday lives; Texting, Sexting, the Internet and Social Networking sites.
Compelling yet easy to read, the Judge breaks it down for parents, teens and educators to provide a format for communications. "Think Before You Click". Judge Jacobs examines actual court cases thanks to the brave kids and families who allowed their stories to be told.
This is an important subject. Read the book and save a life.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for schools that are
taking an active role in bully prevention. I think
all faculty should read it and discuss an action plan
to take to prevent bullying of all kinds. This resource
along with Bullycide in America would be an excellent
kick off to an anti-bully movement. Great Resource!
I highly recommend it!
