  • The social "hierarchy" is a bunch of BS crap.

    I've heard how bullying starts when the "popular" kids learn how to establish their "social dominance" among kids that they perceive to be "weaker" or in some way deserving of being hazed. Honestly why does this behavior even continue?...Makes me wonder just how lazy and incompetent some parents are when disciplining their own kids. Do they even deserve to be parents? There is a recent study showing that bullies on average tend to have it much better socially than the victims they persecute. That is a effed up status. I don't care how true it is, it shouldn't happen. Where I agree with the study in how bullies should be given more constructive activities to participate in to avoid bullying behavior, punishment is also needed to instill a bit of fear in these so-called "popular" kids to teach them that torturing others for their own pleasure and social status is wrong and should never be practiced no matter what. How I wish human behavior isn't so inherently cruel when entering such adolescent stages of life, makes me wonder if we need to go a step further into earlier child-hood to alleviate this issue that would ultimately cause so much undue harm and debilitating suffering for so many people who simply don't deserve to be made fun of for other "popular" kid's personal gains. Perhaps the very notion of putting a bunch of immature kids into a small space by themselves for five days a week is a huge mistake. They may not have the capability to learn the decency just yet on how to deal with so many other people their own age. Until we figure out an education system that removes this stupid hierarchy for good, we need to take more immediate measures to ensure that bullies are properly taught how to deal with themselves and other kids in a more humane manner, and to teach the parents of bullies how to be better parents, or have serious consequences attached to not bothering in teaching their own children how to behave like normal civilized people, as it should be.

  • Bullies don't stop

    Bullies Will continue doing what there doing, whether it be verbal or physical, until someone stands up to them or they receive jail. Sending someone into an office for the rest of there school year isn't going to stop them. Counseling is a way that would most likely help the bully. But the only real way is to show them punishment

  • ~ finding out the root of the problem ~

    Bullying is only a symptom of underlining deeper issues. Something is going on, and needs to be addressed in the bully's personal life. My brother bullied me growing up, and it was dismissed as you know how boys could be. It was really clear to me that he was angry at the world that our dad never showed him the affection that he showed us girls. I could see the pain in my brother's eyes , and he would just shut down and slowly begin to lash out. Children need to feel cared about and when they don't ..... Mentor and care enough to take an interest.

  • Bullies should be held responsible for all harm to the one bullied

    If someone bullies another person, to an extent where they are so hurt mentally, that it reduces their life quality/ability to work and so on. That the bullied one have to go to therapy, then the bully should have to pay for it all. And then be put in jail for some time.
    If someone bullies someone to an extent, where the bullied one commits suicide, then the bully should have to pay the family milions in replacement for the damages. And after that, they should be put in jail for first degree murder.
    So cut out in paper: Bullying should definitely be dealt with. It's destroying people and it's costing the goverment millions every year. And of course bullies should get a harsh punishment.

  • School Bullies Need Harsher Punishments

    Bullies in schools need to receive harsher punishments than the slaps on the wrist they receive now. Without a doubt, these bullies cause lasting psychological harm to their victims, and they need to be reformed immediately. Bullying shouldn't be tolerated under any circumstances, and harsher punishments will reduce these incidents greatly.

  • People are committing suicide.

    People are dying every day, and having the feeling of hatred and guilt within themselves because of other peoples words and actions. Bullies deserve to have harsher punishments. When someone grows so much hate and the feeling of being alone grows so large that they end their life, something must be done to punish the ones who bully.

  • Yes, harsher punishment!

    Bullies need to be punished period! If, it is verbal abuse they are dishing out, then schools and officials need to get it handled! If that bullying turns physical, that is no longer bullying, it becomes assault with the intent to harm another. Charge them for it and stop smacking these kids on their hands and letting them think it is ok. I know if I ever found out my kid was being a bully, that would be the end of that, period.

  • Yes

    School bullies need to learn as children that bullying is not socially acceptable behavior. Not only is of unacceptable socially, but if the bullying continues into adulthood they can have problems holding jobs etc. Therefore, it is far better for the bullies to be punished in a way that they learn bullying is greatly unacceptable and hopefully they can be taut to end the behavior at a young age.

  • Yes, school bullies deserve harsher punishments.

    Bullies need to be made an example of. As a society, we need to stand up and say that it is not tolerated. Additionally, parents need to be punished for their children's behavior. Holding parents accountable for their child's actions seems to make sense in other cases, why not here? Is it not the parent that teaches the bullying behavior? Isn't there a good chance they are bullies as well? A zero tolerance policy with parents also held accountable is the most logical solution.

  • Bullying is a Violent thing and It is the worse thing that can happen to you for a life time.

    Because students shouldn't have the right to bully innocent students or if the student did a small mistake on accident but if there are not harsher punishments for bullying then bullying will keep on increasing and students or kids will be bullied for a life time and that means FOREVER. :(

  • Thinking about it way too hard.

    People are taking this bullying thing way too far. In fact, it really is the anti-bullying people who have made this problem into what it is today. Now, I'm not pro-bullying at all, but what needs to happen is that people need to realize is that bullying is a problem that will never be completely resolved. Bullying is gonna happen to someone and that's just the way it is. So instead of wasting so much time trying to stop the unstoppable, we need to teach the victims how to cope with it. We don't do that and now kids are going to suicide whenever someone says something that isn't dripped in saccharine niceness. The militant anti-bullying campaign is ironically the most detrimental factor in their cause. They spend so much time trying to figure out why this kid is a bully and leave the victim high and dry with some paper-thin counseling. They give the bully as much attention as they want, which is why they started bullying in the first place so really they're just validating the bully's reasoning for being one. The key to the best solution to this problem is that we need to stop trying to stop the unstoppable and teach the victims how to cope.

  • No punishment is REQUIERD

    When a kid gets bullied then the bully should go to jail, deported, paneled, or worse. The bullies hear every day that bullying is a bad thing at that they need to stop, but no they continue to bully and don't stop till they get there share of the life they spent on bullying.

  • An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind

    When you punish the bully with any sort of imprisonment or physical punishment you are stooping down to their level and bullying in return. If you bully the bully you are creating mental scars to which they might never recover from or it might make them harder and make them have more reason to bully. What bullies need is psychological help where they understand why they bully and learn that they can change themselves. Anything that a bully does even if it's physical it leaves mental scars more than the physical damage. Any sort of physical injuries can heal but the fact that the victim is believing that they are weaker than the bully makes mental damage that stays until they might bully someone else. Therefore an eye for an eye can apply as well. Like Gandhi said "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind".

  • No. I think the word "harsh" is a big problem.

    I think that that the solution to the problem of bullying is not taking a more harsh or perhaps a more militant approach. I understand that there are many factors to why a child bullies. What is going on at home? What is going on in their mind? Children need to be disciplined for their actions but the additional steps taken should be in the areas of counseling and rehabilitation.
