What should be the penalty for school bullies?


School bullies should be expelled from schools and placed in juvenile detention or prison. They deserve no clemency nor reeducation whatsoever. If a "child" is old enough to bully another, he/she should be criminalized.

    I have to disagree because I have seen teachers actually make it worse since often the bully is the 'pet' of the teacher and can get away with stuff others can't. Teachers pick winners and losers in the classroom and can do a lot of damage.

    I have to agree. I work with youth who are in the system due to abuse or neglect. There is a lot that goes on in a home. It can either be positive or negative. I see a lot of so called "bad" kids. Sometimes all they need is someone to listen.

    Totally agree. They should be permanently expelled from school and placed into a juvenile detention center or prison.

    I agree - it is not harmless, but has caused a number of deaths in children in grades 1 - 12.

    I do not disagree with anything you say. However, the bullies need to know there will be consequences. Perhaps bullies and their parents should be forced to attend training sessions for a month every other evening. That might motivate the parents.

    I forgot to mention Gangs. We really have had too much of this type of bullying. Hate Crimes and unruly Protestors carted away by Police. A few more prevalent examples.

    I agree totally. I was "bullied" relentlessly as a kid because that's what kids do to each other. It's part of life, and if parents would just teach kids some self esteem it wouldn't bother them so much. It's overblown and overused.
