Another thought on the movie “Bully”

Hello again! I was thinking about the movie this morning as my two kids were trying to drag me out of bed, and my thoughts turned to the bullies themselves. No where in the movie did it show any consequences for the bullies. It left me wondering, are there consquences, and if not how come?

I believe there should be. Kids should be kicked out of school for harrassment. Victims should be able to take legal action against these bullies. They should be able to get restraining orders. I’m really surprised that the lawyers haven’t jumped on this bandwagon and sued the parents of bullies.

How about the schools that turn a blind eye to this stuff? I think they should be prosecuted too. I bet a lawsuit would get everyone’s attention, and then it would be taken seriously. Isn’t that sad? That it takes the fear of a  lawsuit to get any action out of adminstrators. Just some thoughts! Let me know what you think! 🙂

    While bullying is a terrible thing for anyone to endure Isubscribe to teaching kids who are bullied how to fight back and toughen up. Society does not respect weakness so those who are the victims of bullying need to toughen up and fight back.

      Yes, I agree. In the movie when the victimized fought back they were eventually left alone. But it’s very hard to fight a whole crowd of people by yourself, and that’s how bullies operate. Kids in the crowd don’t want to become the next victim, so they join in with the bully and there’s no way a victim can fight a whole crowd. That’s where the schools must step in and take control of the situation before it gets out of hand.
