grinnel: Because of my size and tactless demeanor, I was always pegged by people
ongbok: grinnel: Because of my size and tactless demeanor, I was always pegged by peopleDamn that's horrible. Daily unwanted peggings is worse than getting bullied.
AverageAmericanGuy: LMAO. You know me too well.
grinnel: What is the more credible news source, Daily Mail or The Onion?
Babwa Wawa: AverageAmericanGuy: LMAO. You know me too well.If you weren't already favorited for being funny and reasonable, I might go for your trolling attempts. May I suggest an alt?
Uncle Tractor: Fark_Guy_Rob: Personally, I think it's good. Kids need to be bullied when they are young.How else are they going to be good Citizens? Being bullied prepares you for life. You can't stand up for yourself against a cop or the TSA.....you'll end up in jail. No, you bend over and take it like you did in 3rd grade when that big kid beat you for looking at him funny.I was going to say something along the lines of "stupid or troll," but maybe you're just making a snarky comment on life in the US ...?
AverageAmericanGuy: Babwa Wawa: AverageAmericanGuy: LMAO. You know me too well.If you weren't already favorited for being funny and reasonable, I might go for your trolling attempts. May I suggest an alt?And be accused of being a sock puppet? I get enough of that already.
CeroX: Let them get away with it once at school, then quietly follow them home then watch them. Find a weakness, something they like, a favorite toy or pet...

doglover: Suspended for three days for fighting back?That's the saddest thing I ever heard.
AbbeySomeone: coco ebert: Earguy: 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.Seriously, this. Kids chasing other kids to beat them? That was not how bullying worked in my day, and I was bullied. It wasn't nice but it wasn't this ... physical.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.
Smiledriver: Let your kids know if they're being beaten and humilitated: fight back.
The Envoy: Smiledriver:I don't want my boy to turn in to a twat who goes around clobbering other kids, but I will tell him that if he's being bullied he needs to fight back immediately and that I'll support him in doing that. Fark the bullies.
nymersic: Nobody has commented yet that the kid's name is Preston Deener? Poor kid was destined for bullying from day one.

Mitrovarr: 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.
Wayne 985: doglover: Suspended for three days for fighting back?That's the saddest thing I ever heard.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."
farkingismybusiness: AverageAmericanGuy: doglover: But you can always take a side and you should always side AGAINST bullies.You probably wouldn't be surprised to hear that teachers will oftentimes not only take the side of the bullies, but will also single out the bullied kid in class, increasing the torment for him.Just look at Ender Wiggin.
namegoeshere: Mock26: Dear Bullies,Columbine.Regards,Bullied Kids.Please report to yesterday's "Columbine shooters were the bullies, not the bullied" thread. Read the linked book. Those two used to do shiat like follow mentally disabled students around bouncing basketballs off the back of their heads until they cried.
trappedspirit: Attack: A local news crew caught Preston Deener (wearing white) being punches...Well, there you go. If the little pussy would stop being punches the kids might not pick on him.
KawaiiNot: The incident that stands out the most was Freshman year when some older burn-out girls kept picking on me. One day they pushed me. I got so angry that I went to punch the girl in the face. My finger got caught in her mouth so it didn't really hurt her - just awkward as heck.
KawaiiNot: - Success is the best revenge
Securitywyrm: The "Two students fighting are punished equally" bullshiat was present when I was in high school. It set up an easy system for bullies to abuse, as anyone who was concerned about keeping a clean record wouldn't report it. Seriously, I got detention for reporting that someone punched me. The other student was also given detention. We were then released at the same time from detention to an empty school with no witnesses, he kicked my ass. I didn't report it, because then I'd have been suspended.fark this system.
HST's Dead Carcass: I always hit back, every single time. I made sure anyone attempting to bully me knew it meant pain would come their way. If it becomes painful enough, they stopped. Many times they'd tell me me they'd get me next time, so next time they saw me, I'd initiate the physical contact and let them know I saw them first.Yes I did get into a lot of fights as a kid, and yes I knew how to fight, but I was getting beat at home, I damn sure wasn't gonna take it from some punk kid when I could take a punch from a full grown man. By the time I hit high school, I was pretty unhinged when people tried to bully me. A few tried it early on, I knocked one out with one punch in front of everyone in the smoking area. Another told me to meet him after school to fight and I told him "what's wrong with right farking now?" and began wailing on him, he ran off in front of everyone. He tried to catch me after school and before he could even start his shiat talking, I began wailing on him, once again, he ran. Yes, I did get my ass kicked a few times, but I went right back after those guys to let them know I am not a target, and though I may get my ass kicked today, one of these tiems I am going to get a lucky shot in and they are gonna come out the worse for wear.Truth is: Start wailing on them before they can get the words out of their mouths and they don't get the psychological edge on you, they just get punched in the face.

Administrators "can't pick sides."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."[i0.kym-cdn.com image 252x239]
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: CSB time.My son was harassed by a kid in middle school that told him (every day) at lunch that he was going to beat him up after school. I tried to tell my son that since the kid never followed through with the threat that he should just ignore the kid, or laugh it off. Didn't work, neither did telling a teacher about the incident, and my son started dreading going to school and started hiding during lunch so the kid couldn't find him. I stepped in. I had a meeting with the principal, and told her she had three days (it was a Wednesday) to stop the situation (not talk with the kid, or his parents, but fully stop the situation). If, come Monday, the kid in question so much as approached my son, I had given my son permission to beat the living shiat out of the kid (my words exactly), and keep beating him until physically restrained by somebody. The principle was shocked beyond words, and haltingly told me that my son wold be suspended if he did that. I informed her that I would take vacation from work for that same amount of time and go to Disneyland as a reward for my son's bravery in stopping a situation that the school administration apparently had no ability to stop on their own.My son never saw the kid again.
Aulus: 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.
ADHD Librarian: AlwaysRightBoy: AbbeySomeone: AlwaysRightBoy: Earguy: 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.But they're just kids being kids!!!!/likes your terms betterSome adults still behave this way. It is a personality defect.I have a 42-year-old guy at work who's one of the biggest bullys I know./I keep telling him he needs therapypurely psychosomatic/Lie down on the couch!//What does that mean?
SnarfVader: 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./In before the rain.
KrispyKritter: the Daily Fail is trolling you good folks. the kid is wearing his hair like a five year old dressed in a sailor suit by his doting momma. a nun could take one glance and would want to kick the crap out of this twink.
