How many are advocating how tough physical violence is the way to handle this type of behavior.
What is odd about that to me, is that many of these tough talkers, who think heads need to be smashed, are the ones who can't stand Christianity and the bible, because.......they feel it uses fear and fear of consequences to control behavior.
Lets face it, putting fear into people is a way of controlling behavior because at times nothing else seems to work.
BUT.. using physical violence to the extremes to show these kids a lesson is NOT the answer to how we should teach our children to handle bullies.
So..what next.. one of these kids ends up in the news within the week, having died from head injuries from a gang pile up?
Is that how some of you want this story to play out?
Oh, ok. Better put them in a timeout. That's the answer.

Those little f#ers! Man, I've never been a fan of corporal punishment but I'd love to tie these little bastards down and pepper spray em til they piss their pants. An ugly statement from an anti-fascist, but how else do you deal with these little swine? They're probably the result of a combination of bad parenting and worse education. And it doesn't make me feel any better knowing that when these little sh#theads leave school they'll be uneducated crackhead scum like their parents, because that old lady is the one who spends their whole crappy life working some sh#tty job paying taxes to support those dole-bludging scumbags! It's a vicious cycle that never ends.
Big up lady for putting up with that crap. A lesser human being might've gone into a blood-thirsty rage and mangled the whole bus, I know I probably would have!
Bullying is a weak word that doesn't do this crime justice. This is psychological torture, not "bullying". The word "bully" is a euphemism and sounds f#ing stupid when describing situations like this. I think we need to find a new word to describe the torment of other human beings, regardless of their age.

I would have
- Told the Bus driver to please pull over.
- Call the Police
- Call the School

My opinion is that it is a natural method of education used throughout the animal world. It's a natural method of teaching a child to associate bad behavior with physical discomfort, it's immediate.
You cannot teach a child such things through conversation, they do not have the comprehension or the frame of reference that an adult has.
Imagine your child is reaching out to put their hand in the fire, are you going to smack their hand away, or are you going to sit them down and explain to them that fire burns? Try explaining how fire burns to a child who has never experienced fire before - it's a complete nonsense!
You cannot educate a child about such things through reasoning from an adult brain. It is not possible.

I would like to know why you continue to defend these brats?
If it were to happen to you and yours, would you feel the same way?
Think about that.

I completely agree. This woman is in the wrong line of work. I mean it sucks that this is what the kids did to her, but they should not have been able to, she is supposed to be an authority figure. Even if she felt like crying inside she should have sucked it up, put on a stern face, and put those kids in their place.
