    People who fear a person who is strong or who knows of actions that are in the wrong by others often become targets of some form of harassment. If this happens to you; dont let verbal attacks or threats alarm you. Stay calm and report the activity every time it happens. Keep a log. Stay calm and get out of the situation.
