All the parents of those thugs should be the ones paying for all the victim's hospital bills. Hit them in the wallet and they will rein in those monsters pretty damn quick.

I've never been convinced by the "blame the parents" mantra. I've seen kids from perfectly decent backgrounds go off the rails, and kids from the worst possible backgrounds turn out to be decent citizens. There's a whole lot more that goes into a kid's make up than what goes on at home.

When I grew up. I could remember getting picked on. Then I went home and Mother said unless they physically assault you walk away...nobody should have this happen to them.

I think I bullied a few grades for a couple of months. It was in junior high. I have to say, I can see why career bullies do it, I really can. That submission thing from people really strikes a chord. But then Dad found out about it, and my career as king of 8th through 10th grade ended. I tried to make it up to the guys I had pushed around, but I'm not sure they ever trusted me, not that they should have. No checks on your behavior, and you'll do some unsocial things.

For a while I had gone to catholic school as a child. We would be given lectures on how to treat people if we so much as talked badly about someone. It was really frowned upon and the person causing trouble ended up feeling bad after. They were great speeches. LOL When I got into public school it ws like so chaotic and some kids would pull a knife just because they didn't like the color of someone's hair. Ya know?
All schools should impress good behavior and compassion for one another. They should be forced to watch movies about bullying and how seriously it effects lives. Start at the first grade and every grade thereafter.
At home also, don't ever stop impressing the importance of good behavior, of compassion for your fellow man.
