Stronger laws that Address continuous Bullying that causes suicide and Mental Heath Conditions

Dear readers, it is important that this is signed by Nsw Australia Residents only.
 
The petition of the undersigned citizens of New South Wales draws the attention of the House to the fact that:

• Bullying now takes many forms.
• Laws are inadequate and do not reflect developments in technology and social networking.
• Suicide is the leading cause of death in young people in Australia.
• The Criminal Code Act 1900 and Education Act 1990 require amendment to include bullying, and cyber-bullying to make these punishable acts.
• Bullying is reported to cost the economy $36 billion per year.

Your Petitioners therefore request that the House:
• Acknowledge laws are insufficient to protect physical and mental safety.
• Acknowledge the deaths of Jessica tolhurst [14] and Charlotte Dawson and the public campaigns that ensued calling for bullying-specific laws.
• Acknowledge many recent cases of suicide purportedly induced by bullying.
• Recognise 1 in 4 Australian children report being bullied, but many instances go unreported, with research revealing perceived lack of adult interest as the reason.
• Acknowledge data indicating an increase of 657% in youth self harm and suicide.
• Amend the Crime Act Nsw 1900 to include:
o bullying as a criminal offence;
o cyber-bullying as a criminal offence;
o bullying or cyber-bullying resulting in psychological harm as a criminal offence; and
o inciting suicide and self harm by bullying, cyber-bullying or stalking.
• Amend the Education Act 1990 to include bullying as a form of unacceptable behaviour punishable in accordance with the Crime Act 1900

I would like to draw the attention of the House to the fact that: 

• Bullying now takes many forms. 
• Laws are inadequate and do not reflect developments in technology and social networking. 
• Suicide is the leading cause of death in young people in Australia. 
• The Criminal Code Act 1900 and Education Act 1990 require amendment to include continuous bullying, and cyber-bullying to make these punishable acts. 
• Bullying is reported to cost the economy $36 billion per year. 

I therefore request that the House: 

• Acknowledge laws are insufficient to protect physical and mental safety. 
• Acknowledge the deaths of Jessica tolhurst [14] and Charlotte Dawson and the public campaigns that ensued calling for continuous bullying-specific laws. 
• Acknowledge many recent cases of suicide purportedly induced by bullying. 
• Recognise 1 in 4 Australian children report being bullied, but many instances go unreported, with research revealing perceived lack of adult interest as the reason. 
• Acknowledge data indicating an increase of 657% in youth self harm and suicide. 
• Amend the Crime Act Nsw 1900 to include: 
o Continous Bullying as a criminal offence; 


o Continous cyber-bullying as a criminal offence; 
o Continous bullying or cyber-bullying resulting in psychological harm as a criminal offence; and 
o inciting suicide and self harm by Continous bullying, cyber-bullying or stalking. 
• Amend the Education Act 1990 to include bullying as a form of unacceptable behaviour punishable in accordance with the Crime Act 1900
