The suicide of Marion Fraisse

Marion Fraisse, 13, died by hanging at her home on February 13, 2013. Victim of school bullying and cyberbullying. His story, sadly famous, has toured France. Indeed, many know this story through the media. But also with the book “Marion, 13 years old forever“, written by Nora Fraisse, her mother.

It is a fast-spreading and large-scale form of harassment. Insults, mockery, rumors are passed on to the entire network, they are incessant since they take place night and day, leaving no respite to the victim. All it takes is a simple click to humiliate someone quickly, collectively (1,000 times more spectators than the school hallways) and indirectly (without addressing the victim).

Cyberbully, TV movie born from cyber-harassment

Harassment on social networks also inspired the TV movie "Cyberbully" or "The Wall of Humiliation" released in 2011.

This TV movie follows a 17-year-old teenager, Taylor Hillridge, who receives a laptop for her birthday. She registers on a social network and the hell begins. She suffers many insults and finds herself caught in the center of rumors, damaging her reputation. After her suicide attempt, hospitalized, she meets other teenage victims of cyberbullying. His mother, devastated, decides to speak about it to the school as well as to the State in order to prevent the repetition of similar events.

Being bullied on the net can drive a teenager to despair. Group aggression is a traumatic experience. And on the net, everyone can see, everyone can participate. It's there all the time, 24 hours a day. For the victim, it's even harder, it's chasing her, she's trapped, she can't escape. Dr. Rilke (fictional character), Cyberbully, 2011

This film received mostly positive reviews.

For example, Common Sense Media, an American non-profit organization specializing in the study of family and children's media and technologies, gave 4 stars out of 5 for this film revealing that:

Cyberbully was a good springboard for talking to teenagers about the real existence of dangers on the web. It's good work because it puts its finger on the delicate issues relating to this subject, including the anonymity that anyone can have online, the legal ignorance allowing this phenomenon, but also the social pressure on teenagers to be on the cutting edge of technology, and the possible devastation of bullying inflicted on its victims and their families.

On the French side, the film adaptation of Nora Fraisse's book has also received positive reviews.

A shocking, punchy film, both very realistic and tough! Who attacks the failure of the National Education system in the face of violence as much as the persecutors! Review of "atomwarrior" on Allociné

Megan Meier: suicide linked to cyberbullying

Young teenager born on November 6, 1992 in Missouri in the United States. This American killed herself three weeks before her fourteenth birthday, on October 17, 2006.

A few years earlier, the young girl was taken care of by a psychiatrist in CE2 and was diagnosed with attention deficit disorder and depression.

The teenager creates her MySpace account as she enters 5th grade at the Immaculate Conception Catholic School.

A 16-year-old young man by the name of Josh Evans will then be interested in the teenager who will quickly become the young man's friend “online”. They have never met in real life.

Behind this “Josh” is actually Lori Drew and her daughter (who is a former friend of Megan) as well as an employee of Drew, Ashley Grills. They claim to have created this fake profile in order to extract personal information about the young girl to publicly humiliate her. But also to avenge the rumors that Megan had launched on the young Drew. Many individuals reportedly updated this falsified account.

The young Meier was found hanging in her bedroom closet 21 minutes after receiving a message from “Josh” stating, “everyone in O’Fallon knows you. You are mean and everyone hates you. You better die. The world would be much better off without you."

After the death of Megan Meier, Lori Drew announces that it was a "joke" and that she created this fake account in order to "gain the confidence of Megan and to know what she thought of her daughter and the other internet users.

Following the death of her daughter, Tina Meier founded the Megan Meier Foundation to prevent cyberbullying. Thanks to this foundation, 34 states in the United States have already passed a law punishing cyber-harassment.

In this video, the girl tells how a stranger blackmailed her on the net. After she sent him photos of her bare breasts. She tells in nine minutes, two years of her life, during which she moved and changed schools several times. The stranger, as well as many Internet users, insult him every day on a Facebook page created for this purpose. It's too much for the young girl who ends up cracking up. The teenager was found hanged at her home on October 10, 2012, around 6 p.m.

Following the death of her daughter, Carol Todd creates the Amanda Todd Foundation, which collects donations for anti-bullying awareness programs. But also donations for programs helping young people with mental problems.

In conclusion: on the web, you have to know how to remain vigilant. We too often forget that many dangers await us. What we post about us, what we say to a stranger, the slightest information can harm us.
