Should people who bully be arrested, and if necessary, should they be tried as adults in worst case scenarios?

  • Yes and No

    Bullying is cruel and a serious problem. If bullies think its OK to hurt others then they wont stop when they get to adulthood. But it's not always the bullies fault for acting this way. They may have problems at home or have been bullying victims. If the victim commits suicide I think that's murder.

  • Because who bully need to get the feeling of real life if they dont they are going to continue until they have learned their lesson

    Well i fell that bullies are making it harder on kids who do not need to be punished for anything but on the other hand bullies need to learn what they are doing is very wrong in life now today to stop this its now or never in life for them

  • Better now than later

    Most bullies in school later grow up to be the murderers, rapists, and other ne`er-do wells of society. Because when they only get slaps on their wrists for their actions, it simply tells them that they can get away with it relatively scot-free, and encourages them to perform worse acts later on in life. Setting a true punishment now would stop these individuals from steering toward a bleak future, and give them time to reflect upon what they have done, hopefully making them better people.

  • Yes, it is a crime.

    Yes, people who bully should be arrested, because bullying is often a crime just like anything else. To bully someone is to harass them, often with words, but physically sometimes too. These are crimes. Assault and battery is a crime, as well as harassing, and stalking. People should be held accountable for their actions.

  • Bullying is harassment.

    Harassment is illegal. And since that's what bullying is, there should be charges of harassment brought against the people suspected of doing it. And although I think the penalties should be appropriately severe depending on what happened, only in cases where a death is involved should they be tried as adults.

  • Taking it too far.

    Bullies may hurt kids but it is to try and fit in and be cool. It would be taking it to far if they go to prison for that. Even at prison all they will do is find people who did even worse things than them. They may even take after those other people.

  • Taking it too far

    No bullies should not be arrested and treated as adults. This would be taking it to far for many reasons. First of all, Then they will be seeing people who have done worse cases then them and learn from them. We all know kids have troubles and problems especially during their teen years.
