Parents of minors would have been held liable and faced charges if their kids violated the ordinance. Gipson added that under the law, bullying wouldn’t simply be calling someone a name.

“It is someone who intimidates, harasses, and terrorizes, physically and emotionally, another person. And when you meet that definition, you are a bully,” he said.

Some parents were against the legislation because they found it to be unrealistic. “You can’t hold a 5-year-old child, or for that matter even a 10- or 11-year-old child, accountable for their actions. That’s what their parents are for,” resident Bryan Brown said, according to KTLA.

“I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. I think that it’s way too vague. I think that bullying in and of itself is way too vague,” said Miesha Warren, who has three kids.
