I myself know what it is like to be bullied, I was through all my school years. I too got beat up alot and didn't have many if any friends, and got really depressed and had to eventually quit school. A few times I even considered committing suicide. Fortunately I ended up not doing so as I guess I was mentally stronger then I thought, to some degree. Committing suicide due to being bullied is a choice one makes and makes you responsible for your own actions. However I do feel that bullying...
I myself know what it is like to be bullied, I was through all my school years. I too got beat up alot and didn't have many if any friends, and got really depressed and had to eventually quit school. A few times I even considered committing suicide. Fortunately I ended up not doing so as I guess I was mentally stronger then I thought, to some degree. Committing suicide due to being bullied is a choice one makes and makes you responsible for your own actions. However I do feel that bullying is a choice one makes also and the person should be held accountable for his/her own actions and perhaps even serve time in prison as in Amanda Todd's case where both physical and emotional assault took place, to say for murder is going too far as no one killed her, she took her own life and that was her choice, her being bullied was not her choice. Amanda Todd placing a video of her story of her own sad life on youtube should have been a clue to anyone who had seen it that she was a girl seeking for help and needed as much support as possible or someone to protect her.Parents and teachers need to realize that telling kids who are being bullied to come to them is not always the best choice as often times at least in my own experience that bullying will continue even if the bullies get iin trouble as no one likes a rat, these types of people don't learn there lessons from being punished or yelled at a bit by a teacher or parent. Giving advice such as come tell us when someone bullies you or ignore them and eventually they'll get tired of trying to bully you is giving false advice.People being bullied should be able to have the right to fight back without worrying about getting in trouble. There should be self-defense classes for people being bullied, until parents and teachers realize how serious bullying really is and what they expect doesn't help things like this will continue. To me it looks like bullying has been getting a lot worse since my school years back in the 80s , that alone should show that the advice being given by parents and teachers doesn't work.I hope no more suicides like this happen to anyone it is always sad to hear stories like this. I support stopping bullying but until society stands up and does something about it, nothing will ever change. Hopefully Amanda is in a better place now that she doesn't have to worry about being bullied ever again.
Bullying is Wrong so STOP it.
I was a victim of bullying and it was tough growing up. Not sure how I survived but I did. I hated school because of it all. This needs to stop. I am now in my 40's and it is sad to know this is still going on. Parents need to take responsibilities for this too. Some of the kids who do the bullying are having problems at home. This is all wrong if you ask me.
yes this shit has to stop fn bull shit.
THIS HAS GONE ON LONG ENUFF SO LETS PUT A STOP TO IT!
Yes bullying should be stopped world wide ... I see alot of it on Facebook ......
sad day for the family.......... no new laws needed.
96 invites! Bullying MUST stop!
I am not willing to risk our 2nd amendment rights for the anti bulling campaign and this is exactly what has to happen. so sorry not going to join the cause! just like amanda todd was bullied yes, but where the heck were the parents? having sex in the 8th grade? with some other girls boyfriend? then expects you to feel sorry for her when she gets her butt kicked? what do you think is going to happen? but whatever, most people don't see the world like I have. try going to other countries and you will see just how lucky your are.
