The individual acts that make up a bullying case do tend to be illegal, but difficult to enforce without witnesses or people willing to testify, and on an individual basis do not appear to be worth the time and effort to address.

Because he's already died before the next guy becomes president.

He might be alive. I don't see an update on the story.

But the thing is you can't always predict death. That 80-year-old with cancer might live another decade. The 20-year-old in the voting booth next to him might get hit by a car on the way home and die.

Now now now God. That's not being very tolerant. Some punk/meathead/d-bag whatever manipulating/picking on/tormenting/harassing a kid not his size goes back a loooong ways. Society has seen what can be the result. If they can fine for truancy, (my high school did that after I left), then they can fine, and punish for bullying incidents. Obviously it would be very difficult, verbal accounts, witnesses, etc.

There should be something done other than the school saying "we can't do anything about it". I certainly do not claim to have the answer, that is for sure.

Nothing wrong with a kids old man encouraging to stand up for himself and not show weakness.

I didn't think this far, since most of the bullying I encountered last year in middle school and before was this:

1. A lie being spread that I called a girl a slut (my friends also didn't like this; at lunch we told the assistant principal)
2. Pencils being thrown at me
3. Being pushed
4. Name calling
5. "Playing" with my name (Not saying it correctly ON PURPOSE)
6. Being called special

Yeah, only two were physical. But, maybe someone has to tell either Parents or a teacher, and the parent, when informed, has to call the bully's parents, and they send him off to either military school or jail.

Yeah, just that if Romney wins, my friend might move to Canada.

That Emu Kid says:
Most of those things are technically illegal (slander, verbal assault, physical assault), but as I stated before, individually don't seem to be worth the time and effort to enforce particularly when minors are involved. Taken as a whole it's a much more serious matter, but extremely difficult to prove or hold individuals accountable for.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:51:46 PM PST
That sucks, and I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through that. But people lying about you or calling you names is not a justification for that person to go to jail.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:52:32 PM PST
Yeah, because the Bully will try to deny it. I think the big issue here is that others rarely stand up for the victim.

I think wishing death on the old dude is pretty harsh. The article doesn't even say who he voted for, and there are lots of Christians voting for Obama, too. Remember, not all liberals are godless heathens. Additionally, not all people voting for Obama are liberals.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:52:54 PM PST
And even if those guilty were charged with something, they'd have to be charged as minors.

And this year, so far, we had FOUR boys get suspended for towel whipping in the locker rooms (and one of them had an extra day for showing his private area in the shower).

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:58:38 PM PST
And towel whipping is certainly physical abuse that should be punished...but again, does it deserve jail time?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:59:50 PM PST
Not towel whipping, since it IS typical boy behavior. However, I was a witness; and the Assistant Principal summoned me to talk about it.

That's for sure!!!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 3:07:13 PM PST
All those forms of bullying you previously mentioned are pretty typical for kids.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 3:09:01 PM PST
Yeah. Everyone thinks I did the right thing by telling the Assistant Principal.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 3:16:35 PM PST
You certainly did.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 3:19:53 PM PST
And I agree. I wish more kids would simply tell a teacher.

What, and risk being bullied?

They'd be doing the right thing.
