Thumbs up Bullying law in pennsylvania - February 24th 2015, 06:00 AM

Happy because Pennsylvania passed a law saying bullying is a third degree misdemeanor... Bullies used to get away with a lot here. But thanks to a vote of 193:5, bullies can now serve up to one year in jail. Glad stuff is finally changing for the better.

Although a third degree misdemeanor is not that huge, it's definitely a great step to emphasize that bullying is NOT okay!

That's great to hear! I often feel that bullying isn't taken very seriously, so it's good that it's starting to be taken more seriously.

Wonderful news! I hope that when parents and children speak up that there is bullying going on, that it's finally noticed and properly taken care of.
