Bully Busters -Spy Gadgets to catch those bullies!
Bullies are everywhere! Due to spy gadgets, like spy video cameras and voice recorders, it has now become easier to gather hard evidence against them. Children, as well as adults, can be victims of bullying, or can themselves be the bullies. Bullying can happen anywhere, at school, on the bus, at work, at the park, or even on the street. Proof, is the only way to catch them, but was previously difficult to obtain. Thanks to spy equipment like video cams and recorders, it is now possible to expose those bullies for who they really are, by providing hard evidence, so they can be dealt with appropriately!
This is the best spy cam I have found for a younger child. It just pins on and no one would ever guess what it actually is.
Besides the traditional personality flaws of a bully, there is also one very important flaw that prevents bullies from being punished. Bullies are lyers! They try to lie there way out of punishment and they blame the person they are bullying.Often claiming that it is them who are being bullied, if someone was to report them. Without proof the true bully walks free, and the actual person that is being bullied withdraws even more, fearing people not believing them, and in turn leaving them open to further harassment, because they spoke up.
Another important bully fact that is often overlooked is, that, usually one, or both parents are bullies themselves. This in quite obvious when approaching them, about their child being a bully. I had this experience first hand. I approached a neighbor regarding her son ( who was three years older then mine) bullying my son, and she attacked me. She then called the police and said, that I attacked her! Because, I had no proof, I looked like the guilty one. Never Again!
Workplace bullying is also growing in popularity. Usually the bully is someone in a higher position then you, or with more signority then you. Jealousy is a huge factor in workplace bullying, but it is very hard to prove, especially if, it is done behind your back. What can you possibly do to stop it, if you are the new employee. Gathering proof is the only way! This type of bullying has also happened to me on a few separate occasions, and there was nothing I could do to prove it, so I once again, looked like the guilty one. Never Again!
It is time to finally expose those bullies for who they really are! The bullying stops here!
Gadgets to Catch Those Bullies
There are various ways that I have discovered to catch those bullies. Depending on what Country you live in the laws may differ, but in Canada I have not found any law that states that Gadgets such as voice recorders and video cameras are illegal to use in to record a bully. In fact, the law states that a voice recorder can be legally used to record a conversation as long as one person knows about it, and of course that person would be you! As for other countries, you must check your laws on this. Video is a different story, it would seem that as long as you are not using it in in a private setting, it can be used to catch bullies. You see videos all over the internet on it.
Voice Recorders would be perfect to use on a verbal bully. You can leave it in your pocket and no one would ever know.Calling names and intimidation can easily be proved by recording the abuse. New technology allows for many hours of data to be recorded, without running out of space. Some cell phone also have video and recording capabilities, all you have to do is hit the record button and place your phone in your pocket.
Spy cams are also another way to gather proof and they can be hidden almost anywhere. Buttons and hats with hidden cameras in them are great ways to record the bully in action, and can also record hours of data. Laws on spy cams are different than voice recorders, but in my opinion using one to record a bully in action, even if not admissible in court, could perhaps be used as proof to a teacher or a boss for example, that some type of bullying is occurring.
