First, it depends on your definition of bullying. I was bullied, but it was not a criminal offense. The bullying that takes place today, especially the cyber-bullying is criminal and should be treated as such.
Bullying should not be allowed. It did not make me a better person. I think I missed out on some opportunities because I was bullied and I think I would have had more friends, if people were not afraid of the bullies that bothered me.
Bullies need to be educated, but I am not ready for school systems to hire bullies to bully the bullies.
