ADL Florida Regional Director Hava Holzhauer: The heartbreaking story behind the suicide of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick in Polk County, Fl., continues to unravel. Troubling suspicions that cyber-bullying may have been a contributing factor to Rebecca’s suicide have led to the arrests of two young girls, adding to the extensive layers unfolding around this tragic case. It is critical we navigate the complex intersecting issues of free speech, school discipline and policy, parental supervision, prevention, general civil discourse and the dangers of cyber-bullying — for thus far, there has been no justice for Rebecca Sedwick.
