sigdiamond2000: "He licked the blade twice. He turned and said 'I'm going to chop you up into chili and make your friends eat it.' I was scared and I thought he was actually going to do it.Most painful to the parents, however, was that their daughter was left wondering for so long whether that boy might try to make good on his threat.I sincerely doubt a 13-year-old boy knows how to make chili. It's pretty complicated, actually. That's why those cook-offs are so competitive.
Madbassist1: mooseyfate: Dude, don't take this the wrong way. I'm sorry that you grew up in a time and school district where no one gived a shiat about you or what happened to you, even if it was at the hands of another student or faculty member. But it shouldn't SICKEN you that shiat's actually being done about it right now. It should make you feel good. You are to the anti-bully movement what Uncle Ruckus is to the civil rights movement. And it doesn't make any sense. If you want to wear the fact that you survived that kind of treatment as a child like a badge of honor, by god man, do it. But coming on the internet to bemoan how kids these days have no stones is pointless. We're supposed to evolve. We're supposed to get further away from acting like goddamn cavemen. This is a good thing. There are plenty of other "side-effects" to today's society to be pissed off about than kids not getting away with threatening other kids with knives. That's all I'm saying.You're right. Lets give her a farking trophy and a participation ribbon instead.
pla: captainktainer : He threatened to kill her and showed her the weapon he would use to do it with....And?I had what we would today call a "bully" actually farking cut me (albeit only a minor scratch) while holding me at knifepoint on an overnight field trip, and the school, learning of this, gave him one day's detention - and me the same because "it takes two to tango".The world has changed. You poussies of today literally sicken me with what you consider "serious".That said, I consider modern attitudes toward bullying something of an improvement on my generation's. That also said - Sympathy, for anything that doesn't actually injure you? Yeah, not a lot of it from this corner.
pla: FTA: Monroe School District officials said the suspect was removed from class, disarmed and emergency expelled within 10 minutes of the girl's report.So, it takes nothing more than one unsubstantiated claim to ruin your classmates entire lives now? Wow. In situations like this I often say that I feel immensely relieved to have gotten the fark out of the prison-educational complex before the modern era of paranoia...But this one, I really think I could have had sooo much fun with!/ I sincerely worried about my safety every goddamned day, you poor little marshmallow.// Cry me a frickin' river, princess.
