Where Are The School Bullies Now?

 School bullies are the scum of any school, they cause pain and misery to those who don't have it within them at the present time to deal with the bullies themselves, there are even some cases were kids have took their own life, so that they won't have to put with it anymore, which says a lot about the schools and the teachers who don't do a great deal, although this might not be true in some schools I hope, but when I was at school, they didn't deal with school bullies that well full stop!

I always wondered to myself after leaving school, Where are these school bullies and are they continuing their life of misery inducing shite in a job or are they nice people with families now or have they just dropped off the face of the earth never to be seen again, I do hope it's the latter, because it would just make me smile and chuckle everyday. People who do bullying obviously have something wrong with themselves to do this anyway, they may think they have a huge big nose and would want to pick on someone else's because of it, it could be something that daft and ludicrous, that it's true, or you have more friends than them.

School bullies are cowards and they act as much, one of the things I always think of in a bully, is that they usually have a couple of henchmen who try to look hard, but they are quite laughable and they try to look hard because they've got backup, but riddle me this, would they do half of this stuff if they were on their own, probably not.

The social unacceptability of bullying is worldwide, but it still happens in certain corners of the globe and anywhere in your city and quite obviously, it's not confined to schools as some bullies never grow out of it and carry it long into their adult lives with a constantly festering chip on their shoulder, work employees and bosses can be bullies, but so can young primary school kids and each one will cause some distress to someone along the line.

If you've ever seen a past school bully later on, Did they acknowledge you or did they look away? My results are mixed, with some acknowledging me by saying "alright!" to others I just ignore anyway and laugh about it, because I don't care if they have seen the error of their ways, I've moved on, once a tosser, always a tosser!

Or have you ever had that strange way of a bully bullying you, so that you will become friends, that one is weird, the bullying might start out as name calling or something like that and a few WWF Wrestling moves which can't be really called a fight later and then you're friends, never understood that one!

A lot of people like to analyze the bully to try and understand how and why they do this, Bollocks to that! because I don't give a rats arse, if they have decided to bully someone, then they can't just pin it on their dad beating them up or some cliche thing like that, it's easy to blame other things, but not your own actions and they say bully's grow up, it's likely that they don't.

When I was back at primary school I was in that era of school were they hadn't phased out school discipline and this involved anyone making a nuisance of themselves would have blackboard rubbers thrown at their head or they would drag them up in front of a School assembly and smack their backsides and in some cases this was in front of the whole school watching. And this relates to a funny moment in my school when this bully was caught bending other kids hands right back and making them cry (that's not the funny bit!) and I just remember this teacher coming in and saying "that's not how you do it, it's like this" and he bent the bullies hand right back and you heard a crack and it was hilarious, because it worked, he never bullied again.

But they can't do this now at schools as teachers would be sacked and the kids know this, so they are allowed to get away with a bit more now, as it all starts at school, I think it should be dealt with at schooI, if bullies get sorted out while they are at school, then you will say to yourself, where are the bullies now?

      There was this girl who made my high school life hell and I mean that. I actually considered suicide more than once and ended up in psychiatric care because of some of the crap she did. Point being I went to my high school reunion and shes overweight, has three kids by three different dads, works at McDonalds and still think she's hot shit, pardon the language. But it was nice to see that Karma does do her job lol

      Great hub. Many school bullies do not end up in any thing significant. My mother had a school bully who ended up working in some cheap department store as an underpaid store clerk. However, most school bullies end up in jail where they meet stronger, seasoned types who dish out to them what they have dished out to victims. Karma is a bitch. Remember, bullies what goes around comes around. Bullies get their just rewards-HELL to pay in one way or another!

      My mate met his school bully a few years after school.

      The guy was slouched in a bus stop out of his face on drugs.

      My mate said "Remember me?" and thumped him.

      Great Hub

      Hi, Waynet, this is so true. I remember being bullied badly at school, I was so shy and it showed. then one day, something happened to my head! lol And the girl who was kicking me suddenly kicked me once too often! The mist came down, and I suddenly without knowing why or how, turned on her, picked her up and smashed her against the headmasters wall near his door! I kept banging her head against the wall! I am not proud of it, but I just lost the plot! she was so shaken up, she never did it again. And neither did anybody else. That day the worm turned, and that worm was me! Hope you are feeling better! thanks nell great hub by the way!

      I remember old school discipline well. I once came across a bully in later life who had become gross. I could not help but smirk to myself.

      Yes Robert, it could be that the bullies just die after falling foul of someone who will fight back, that's the hope anyway.

      I just find it a very cowardly thing to do, but to stand up to the bullies takes courage, especially if there is more than one of them and if it's back at school, while you're a kid, it's best to deal with it almost straight away.

      I'd like to know that too! But I think I know the answer.

      The really worst ones move on and up into criminal careers. They're gunning for it. These are the juvenile delinquents who have to have the deadliest weapon in the school. It was a pocket knife when I was a kid, or throwing rocks. Now it's the ones that have guns in their lockers and run drugs to pay for them.

      The majority of them know when to follow the rules and when they'll be winked at. They learn to play the system and pick on the kids the teacher doesn't like. These sort themselves out into jobs where they're in charge, seize petty authority like they're born to it and continue to make their family's and employees' lives miserable till they're dead, never questioning "rank has its privileges." Which include taking out a bad mood on anyone in a weaker position.

      The grade school I went to actually explained it to me as The Bullying System. They were in favor of it. That was the Natural Pecking Order and that was how the Future Leaders Of Society sorted themselves out. It was for the Good of the Many that they be allowed to do so without interference, but with a little guidance from the teachers. Too bad if the few got tortured to suicidal despair. Those few ought to shape up, get in the back rank and start bullying the next time someone else is picked on, so that they don't stand out.

      I refused to, having a rather fiery conscience at that age, and so I was a serious Troublemaker.

      Only a very conservative school would admit that The Bullying System is part of its policies. But most schools have their roots in it and it was popular 19th and 20th century thinking. So the bullies sort out into:

      1) Those who toady to authority and rise in the ranks to become Leaders of Society, enjoying the privilege of sadism and stepping on anyone they can reach.

      2) Those who decide to break all the rules and enter the Criminal Hierarchy for an exciting, dangerous, violent career in a subculture that respects them for being violent and physical about it. Oddly enough most of the criminals I've ever met are extremely conservative people and gung-ho for the death penalty or any other extreme penalties.

      I think some of that is the glamour of the risk, that they got drawn into crime as brave outlaws who dare that kind of risks, so the worse the penalties, the better they look. Some of it is just background, because a conservative outlook tends to regard bullying as human nature and not to be changed or questioned.

      Many, many of the bullies are abused at home and pass it on to their own families. But not all of them.

      A recent study showed that bullies do not have low self esteem about the shape of their nose or anything else. They have higher self esteem than other kids and think they can get away with anything -- they like to find out just how much they can get away with. They are more likely to think they're entitled and that if they outrank someone -- then they have the right to enjoy sadism.

      The kind of fight you had, where the bloke was your friend afterward, I had that too. He picked on me for weeks over summer vacation till I thrashed him, sat on him and pummeled him. He cried uncle, I let him up being honorable, and after that he was my friend. That kind of boyhood-testing thing I think comes out of the old school... gets passed on by tradition, dads talk about having that fight, it gets witnessed by other boys who figure it out, it gets absorbed by osmosis till they're pushing someone who shoves back. Shove back and you've proven you're good enough to be their friend and wouldn't wuss out if they got attacked.

      Maybe that's it, just knowing your friend can take care of himself before getting too close to a human punching bag and catching all of his attackers too. I don't know if the tradition would survive if the schools really did put a stop to bullying. But it's the schools that have to do it, because the bullies come from homes that approve of it.

      Great post here. Even when I was in school in the 70s, the bullies and all kids were allowed to do so much. Now it's worse, and some bullies even attack teachers. Then the bully blames everyone but himself, and gets away with it.
