St. Louis workshop focuses on cyberbullying

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Representatives from more than two dozen law enforcement agencies from Missouri and Illinois will gather in St. Louis next week for a workshop on cyberbullying.

The organization Child Safety Day is hosting the workshop on Wednesday. It will be led by Tina Meier, whose 13-year-old daughter, Megan, committed suicide in 2006 after being the victim of cyberbullying.

Organizers say the workshop will include police officers conducting a mock re-investigation of the Megan Meier case using current state laws instituted after Megan’s death.

Organizers of the workshop say bullying on the Internet can play a role not only in suicides but in school shootings and other tragedies.
