Montana schools trying to tackle cyber bullying

But trying to actually regulate the growing number of social media forums hasn't been easy for school officials. New, anonymous websites and Facebook "confessions" pages continue to emerge, making it even easier for students to bully their peers at any hour of the day.

"The things that are said are a lot harsher than what would be said in person. It gets to you more because they have time to think about what they can say. When they do think about that, it's pretty rough. It hurts," cyber bullying victim Cameron Crosby said.

Reporter Laura Wilson goes On Special Assignment during the Tuesday 10:00 News to find out which state laws schools and law enforcement are turning to in hopes of putting an end to local cyber-bullying.
