Bullying laws? Really? You know if someone from the past were to look into this they'd be laughing. How did kids get so spoiled rotten that they can get away w/ this shit and we have to have LAWS against it? I'm not saying these things didn't happen then, but SOMETHING would have been done and in a hurry. This doesn't just happen on the bus, it happens at school, to the teachers, bus drivers and they can do NOTHING. They are taught not to respond and send the kid to the office. What if the kid won't go to the office? Teachers NEED something, they need to have some sort of good punishment for these assholes, community service or SOMEthing. No wonder we have schools full of shitty teachers, if I had to live through what they do everyday, I'd be a bitch too. Bullying taught me to be a bitch, trust no one, don't give a shit what other people think, and that I have thick skin, blotchy or not.
My principal had a paddle on the wall in his office. I don't know if he ever used it, but we knew he would if he had to. Do I want someone else paddling my kid? NO! But if I teach my kids right from wrong, I shouldn't have to worry about it. It's the people who count on society to raise their little assholes, those are the people's kids who will get paddled by someone else, because their parents don't care enough to discipline them. For example this article about a 10 yr kid getting punched by an adult because he was being too noisy and throwing popcorn at the man and his girlfriend. Did that man get any support? Nope, he got charged w/ Second degree assault and the whole U.S. was crying over the little douche bag getting punched. I bet that kid will never act up in a theater again. Do I think it's right? No, but who else is going to punish the kid? Who drops off a 10 yr old w/ his friends to a PG-13 movie and leaves? If you don't know your kid can behave in public w/o you, then you better not be leaving them. Isn't that abandonment? Where I live your kids have to be 12 yrs old to leave them alone somewhere, WTH? No, this guy didn't get any support and he'll probably get sued by the parents because he hurt their poor little douche bag child.
There are still some good kids out there, that have good parents that don't let them act like assholes, too bad we're a dying breed. If your kid yells at you, swears in front of you, screams until they get what they want, does whatever the hell they want no matter what you say...your kid is probably an asshole. If they will treat you that way, what's to stop them from treating ANYone else that way? At least the little douche bags recorded it and got caught, how many other instances go unrecorded?
