Benton Harbor to discuss anti-bullying ordinance

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Benton Harbor Commissioners will meet with residents Wednesday night to talk about violence - something that has plagued the city for decades.

Commissioners will be working out the kinks of the proposed anti-bullying ordinance.

"A civil infraction is something that can be solved financially however if its criminal then there could possibly be some jail time attached to it as well," said Marcus Muhammad, Benton Harbor Commissioner.

Some say the law is a good idea, but wouldn't fix the problem.

"I think there should be some type of law but not to get the person locked up," said Benton Harbor resident Charles Miller.

Others wonder if it is just another ploy for money.
