Police suspect cyberbullying may be the cause of 15 year old Phoebe Prince's suicide. Now here's the part that REALLY makes me mad...bullies continued to post insulting messages on Phoebe's Facebook page AFTER her death. Bullies had taunted this girl through Facebook, text messaging, and other media. Really, this story is sad and makes me pretty mad.
