Students should be held responsible. The only reason bullies roam free in the school hallways is that the people the witness the bullying are to afraid to tell a trusted adult. this makes the bully feel like he is invisible and he still bullies other kids. Now if some one calls someone a name like stupid or jerk that they should not be responsible. Though if they are being beaten by a bully and you witness it you should report because a lot of abuse could lead to suicide which we hear of every day on the news.
