Bullying: A Growing Problem

November 20, 2013 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by A. Randall

The four major types of bullying are verbally, socially, physically and now cyberbullying. It is a growing concern that we are hearing about more and more frequently. 

Rep. Robert Williams describes bullying as “... a group of individuals who usually come together as a pack and they develop some type of bond, and what they do is they prey on those who are less compatible to them…maybe a very academic person.” 

In this Web feature, we take a look at eleven year-old Cartavius Segars who is tired of being a victim and ready to talk about his experience. Segars says, “Sometimes I just ignore them and sometimes you just have to stick up for yourself.”
