What is the difference between free speech and cyber bullying? Think of some examples of free speech. Is what you are saying meant to frighten, intimidate, or cause distress by someone else or a group of people? If the answer is “Yes” then it is not protected free speech, it is harassment, and is cyber bullying that can get you in trouble.

11 Consequences of Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying can get you in trouble with your parents, your school, or even the Police! Every school has an anti-bullying policy. If you violate that policy, you can be subject to discipline. State law says that harassment is illegal and if you harass someone you can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Harassment means: knowingly frightening, intimidating, or causing emotional distress to another person by anonymously making a telephone call or any electronic communication (Mo.Rev.Stat ).
