This first chapter in the serial crimes section discusses the highly relevant and problematic issues of serial bullying and harassment. While not always rising to the levels of criminal behavior (because of the age of the offenders or the nature of behavior itself), these often set the stage for future victimization or criminal behavior. For example, many bullies are victims, and many perpetrators rise to the level of adult criminal. These and other issues are discussed, including school-based practices, prevalence and incidence, and outlooks for bullies and victims.
