California City May Charge Kindergartners With Misdemeanor For Bullying


The fight to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline must continue to wage on in each respective city. In Carson, California the City Council gave a preliminary approval to an ordinance aimed persons, including other youths, who cause anyone from kindergarten to age 25 to feel terrorized, harassed or threatened with no legitimate purpose.

In this new proposal, children as young as kindergarten-age could face misdemeanor charges for bullying under a proposed law advancing in the Southern California city.

According to The Daily Breeze, a final vote is expected on May 20.

First-time offenders could be ticketed for an infraction and fined $100. A second infraction would cost $200, and a third-time offense could bring a criminal misdemeanor charge.
