How "Cappers" Attack Online

ISS 7402 05334I have never been very computer savvvy often struggling with technology, but over the years I have worked on educating myself more, particularly in the area of online safety and how it applies to the biggest target market that SAFE International teaches which is our youth.  We spend most of our time teaching how to deal with people who may be face to face to their attacker in regards to violence, but more and more it is becoming popular for "attackers" to use the internet as their way to attack, very often never even coming face to face with their victim.  One high profile case is the one of Amanda Todd who was stalked, bullied, and eventually committed suicide as her way out of this tragedy.  The documentary on Amanda Todd w...
