ONLINE spats between school children are spiralling out of control, leading to hate messages, violence and even death threats.
Experts say 10 per cent of all children now claim to have been cyber-bullied.
The enraged father of one teenage schoolgirl became so incensed by comments he believed a boy had made about his daughter on a social networking site that he accosted him in the street and threatened to “slit his throat”.
The man approached the Year 8 boy as he walked to a bus stop on the state’s mid-north coast and pushed and threatened him before boarding the bus, where he issued further death threats to the boy and other students.
