Interesting website reading

The following is from the website, 

What bullies don't want you to know...

"If a victim fights back the bully will say, "See, they're the real bullies.
We are the real victim."

"Bullies often will lie about what they have done and are doing. A bully will deny it or claim they are the 'real' victim. Be ready for this to happen. Don't let their lies affect you."

"Bullies will often find a sidekick - a person or group- they will 'use' for their own gain. In their path there are often many individuals they have manipulated and 'used."

"Bullies are very convincing story tellers often gaining sympathy and 'assistants' who help them bully. Rest assured, bullies will 'use' these people then turn on them. Often their sidekick is terrified of being the next victim."

"In cases we have seen bullies tell bold-faced lies to the police when questioned. Even after they are caught in the lie, they never told the truth."
"Bullies are likely to be narcissists never taking responsibility for their actions. Never."
