I hate the word "bully". Say it a few times and it even stops sounding like a real word. Bully. Bullying. Bullied. What does it mean?

Let's start using some other terms: torture, intimidation, humiliation, assault.

When I was in high school I thought zero-tolerance rules were a bad idea. I have to wonder how much they cause additional problems since it just seems like another way to make sure the victim stays a victim.

This is a problem with the snowflake generation. Kids don't even care if there's a camera around. I think they prefer it. Perhaps a public swift kick to the nuts are what a lot of these kid terrors need, but I'm sure they would just love the attention that would create.

Girls bully others but usually don't resort to physical violence. Cruelty, slandering gossip, etc are the preferred tools.
Those boys showing such disregard for witnesses and cameras is indicative of a serious problem.

Bullies are untouchables typically, both from the students and the despicable faculty (some of them are good people though).

And if they happen to be football players? Hah. You should be ashamed for trying to resist.

Bullying is not something you can just "get over". It becomes part of who you are and your outlook towards others is shaped by your bad experiences.

I wasn't bullied. Rather, I was a bully, in the broadest sense of the term. I've held many kids by their ankles and dunked them in the toilet. I've stolen their books and locked their lockers with padlocks. It's something that I've grown out of, but I still carry around a little bit of that in me.

Telling someone to get over it is pretty callous. It negates their experiences and feelings. Rather, we should find ways to accept it as something that happened in the past and move on, accepting that there are scars that may never fully heal over.

Man, that's nothing. I could probably beat up FOUR first-graders at once.
 
2012-10-10 02:10:38 AM
Sounds like the easiest three assault and battery convictions in the world. So what if they're kids? Charge them as juveniles. Throw them in juvy for a while. Make an example. In all honesty, if they assaulted someone in front of an adult with a video camera, they need a serious wake-up call right now anyway - that might do the job where other things have failed.

Being the youngest of many siblings, I loved it when people who didn't know who I was tried to bully me. All I had to do was mention my last name. Problem solved.

I used to get picked on a little in grade school and junior high (partly because my mother allowed me to dress myself, which in retrospect was a terrible idea). Somehow I kind of grew out of it around freshman year, and I think maturing plus my mom's death put me in the mind set that I just didn't care anymore if people were being stupid and belittling. I also made a few older friends, which probably helped.

Anytime someone asks if I could go back and do it all over with my current knowledge, I answer HELL YES, because I'd rule that damn school.

It's the Mail. Taking them seriously means we have to doubt children as a concept even exist now, let alone any of these kids bullied one another or the township is real or the kids aren't just some actors.

I'm lucky enough to have experienced very little physical bullying. Ostracism, taunting, that sort of thing. It's hard to say whether I'm a geeky non-athletic introvert because of the social bullying or I got bullied because I'm a geeky non-athletic introvert.

Either way, it kind of reached a plateau in junior high and high school, when I was in a school large enough to have enough geeky introverts that we could form our own clique. From there I pretty much didn't suffer from bullying much at all.

The only exception was gym class in junior high, where you had the antisocial and not-so-bright sorts that had got held back a couple times and so were two to three years older than the other kids. Fortunately for me, the coaches were actually fairly alert and didn't put up with too much bullshiat, so they never got away with very much (a little shoving around, noogies, the sorts of things that can be accomplished quickly while the coach isn't looking, and without leaving a mark). I do remember a time when the gym class bullies were trying to stuff some other kid (even scrawnier than me) into a big heavy trash can, and I dragged the can away before they could stuff him in. They did turn on me and push me around a bit, but the coach called for everyone to come in, and they laid off.

I like to say I've been through just enough bullying to sympathize with people who've been really bullied, but not enough to be too badly warped by it.

This case is exceptional. The bullies either really do not care, which is a problem as traditional methods of discipline will almost certainly fail, or are looking for attention, in which case they need to get some (though perhaps not the kind they are looking for.) In any case, reporting the incident to the police and having video and eyewitness proof ready should put a swift end to this particular situation.

In terms of general bullying, we need to make it clear that students should not have to worry about their personal safety in schools. If a person is being intimidated, threatened, and/or assaulted, the victim should report the matter, preferably before violence results, and should feel free to defend him/herself if it results in a fight.

Interesting this should come out now.

Last week, my 13 year old granddaughter was being verbally harassed at her middle school by some boys who have been pulling this shiat since 6th grade. She got pissed off and punched one of them out. for that, she got sent home for the rest of the day. When her step-father went down to the school to pick her up and inquire about the incident, he asked what happened to the boys. They refused to tell him any more than that they "had consequences."

WTF?

Today, I learned the boy was joking about it in front of my granddaughter and she replied, "Yeah, it's pretty funny you got punched out by a girl."

I've got a feeling things are going to get interesting, especially since her mother, my daughter, is going down there for parent/teacher conferences tomorrow with fire in her eye. She's 6'1" and doesn't suffer fools.

Yeah, this crap happens a lot. Happened to a friend of mine back in junior high more than a decade ago and it's still happening.

Punched in the face and you hit back? That's a suspension, if you're lucky. Administrators "can't pick sides."

Sounds a lot like my experience as a young person. I always feel I have to qualify the statement "I was a geek in high school." Yes, I got picked on, but nowhere near as bad as some kids.

I usually fought my fights outside of school. It was hilarious going to the administrators office the next day with a bruised swollen hand and a black eye and denying absolutely everything.

"Now we know you were in a fight. We have several sources."
"I have no idea what you're talking about."
"We've heard there is a video tape of the fight."
"I have no idea what you're talking about."
"Well I guess you're just like your brothers. Go back to class."

What do you mean by "verbal harassment?" It is not all right to punch people, although I am glad that all the school did was send her home for the day. The boys should also be punished, but children will tease other children, and your grand daughter should learn to respond in words (like she did the second time,) or ignore the dolts. Violence should only be employed to defend against violence.

Here is the original story with the reporter that was involved explaining what had happened. By the way the bully didn't care about the camera crew being there and how the school said it is working to identify the bully from the tape, I'm pretty sure that the bullies are kids of either very prominent rich people in the community, school administrators, or high ranking cops.

I used to not fight back for just that reason. My mom was told when I was in the 4th grade by the principal that if I managed to hurt the bullies, he would make sure that I didn't get in trouble for it. He knew I wasn't a troublemaker and that they started the fights.

/started taking martial arts after that
//parents had me yanked and put into a private school before I could take up the principal's suggestion
