  • No I don't. It's not especially honorable to do nothing. But I don't think that scared bystanders are as guilty as the person that is doing the actual bullying. Sort of depends on the severity of the bullying though, ya know?

  • No. In the same sense someone who witnesses any crime is not guilty of that crime. No one is responsible for the choices someone else makes. That's ridiculous!

  • Personally, I don't feel that's the case. There are varying degrees of culpability. In the case of any action, the person performing the action itself is most responsible for the action. That person had to make a decision to perform the action, which bears the majority of the praise or blame. Bullying is no exception to that. That's not to say that people who stand by and allow things to happen without intervening are blameless, but omission is less egregious than commission. Anyway, you can witness something and then report it, and, in that case, I don't think you would have done anything wrong. It WOULD be wrong to try an innocent witness cooperating with authorities for the crime they reported. So, in short, no.

  • How can they be as bad as the bullies?
