Question: can a bully be someone you are friends with?


Even if someone calls him/herself a friend because they hang out with you, they can NOT bully you - Arizona has a new law that requires schools to have policies on bullying, harassment and intimidation. The message is clear: schools must create an environment where bullying is not tolerated. Each school is required to have a procedure for students, parents and teachers to confidentially report bulllying behavior to a school official to trigger investigation, punishment and prevention of further bullying behavior. (A.R.S. § 15-341). If the bullying acts threaten or actually cause injury to a person or property, then more severe penalties are called for and carried out under Arizona’s criminal laws. (A.R.S. § 13-2911).
