Internet makes Italy discover its teenagers’ hell

On Monday the Italian Postal Police, charged with monitoring the Web, seized the video recorded in Bollate, near Milan. In the video a young schoolgirl harasses and beats another female student shouting gross profanities against her, while many other youngsters watch the fight laughing and encouraging the aggressor. The public was – perhaps naively – shocked by the verbal and physical behavior of the girl.

On Sunday a 14-year-old girl affected with depression committed suicide in Cittadella, near Padua, after having being repeatedly insulted on the Ask.fm sites, which allows users to address each other anonymously.
