Racine City Council hears public input on proposed ordinance to fine school bullies

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Racine City Council is still debating an ordinance to fine school bullies.

The proposal would also allow police to ticket parents who don't stop their kids from bullying.

The City Council was scheduled to vote on this back in December but pushed it to Wednesday evening. Once again, however, it was tabled.

One Alderman says this is a very new concept.

"We're kind of entering into new territory as a council where we haven't addressed issues of social impact and I'm excited that we're doing that now and I'm excited that we are having these conversations, we also have to realize when we talk about these things, there's going to be unintended consequences."

If passed, the ordinance would carry a fine up to $1,000 plus court costs.
