Mostly people with in the age groups of 12 through 18 are being bullied. Mainly anyone who is “different” in the bullies eyes, such as mentally challenged people. There is no real legal impact on “bullying” but when bullying goes as far as to harassment then the issue does have a legal impact. Bullying does have a big social impact on people because sometimes victims that have gone through a lot of bullying can get traumatized enough to end up getting psychological problems that can affect them for the rest of their lives. The only “laws” that bullying has comes from the states enforcing the schools to also enforce bullying and try to prevent it. The U.S. Department of Education reviewed 11 key components that had to do with bullying laws among schools. There are 49 states in the U.S. that have anti bullying laws and they have created those laws to protect the civil rights and liberties of people. It is going pretty good so far because of all of the attention bullying has but it has been said that trying to prevent bullying is a difficult thing because people just are how they are and it carries on to the next generation and it just goes from there. So these laws have not really failed or succeeding in enforcing anti bullying because it is still going on but there are a lot of organizations trying to prevent it and reduce it as much as possible. But all in all we must keep trying to stop it and hope for the best. Mario P.
