Calif. town looks to criminalize bullying

CARSON, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A town near Los Angeles introduced an ordinance Tuesday that would criminalize bullying.

Officials in the City of Carson say the ordinance would make it a misdemeanor to cause any Carson residents from Kindergarten through age 25--to feel terrorized, frightened, intimidated, threatened, harassed, or molested--without a threat of physical harm.

The ordinance would also cover cyber-bullying and makes a parent or legal guardian responsible for the bullying acts of his or her child.
