Discussion Thirteen

In 2013, To Maryland General Assembly passed a law against cyber-bully. Coined “Gracie’s Law.” the legislation was passed after 15-year-old Grace McComas; a Glenelg High School Sophomore, who killed herself after she was the victim of repeated cyber-bullying.
The statute reads in part:
A person may not use an interactive computer service to maliciously engage in a course of conduct that inflicts serious emotional distress on a minor or places a minor in reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury with the intent: (i) to kill, injure, harass, or cause serious emotional distress to the minor; or (ii) to place the minor in reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury.

In your opinion, can the law adequately address the cyper-bullying and thereby protect minors (persons under 18 years of age.) Further, should the law be limited to the protection of minors or should it include all persons?
Fully explain the basis of your opinion.
