Teenager JOSI HARRISON made the Oregon news when she and her parents sued five Clatskanie minors and their parents in a case involving her being the victim of cyberbullying and sextortion in the Clatskanie School District. The story is a social media cautionary tale that turned into a nightmare for Josi.
The school district isnt off the hook, either, as the family plans to file a federal lawsuit against it for not doing enough to protect Josi and her fellow students (http://tinyurl.com/josisues).
Josis story caught the attention of NBC NEWS, and she was interviewed by JANET SHAMLIAN as the cover story on the TODAY show Sept. 5 (http://tinyurl.com/todayjosi). She is pictured in a still shot from the segment.
So how does Josi feel about social media now? I think about everything I send, she told NBC. Everything I do. I dont even post anything anymore, because Im afraid of whats going to be said next. Better late than never.
