City Commissioners have taken up the task of ending bullying in the city. Some support an ordinance to make harmful behavior illegal, which would hold parents responsible. Burton says cyber-bullying is on the rise among youth.

Burton says bullying is no longer just a physical problem, social media has taken bullying from the playground to inside the home. In a recent survey, he says 42% of students have been cyber-bullied, while 53% have written something hurtful online. Outside help won't work, Burton says bullying needs to be stopped from within the community.
