According to a recent news story, a thirteen-year-old student who was continually bullied by his schoolmates committed suicide by hanging himself from his bunk. In a double tragedy, a female student in the same school who was depressed over the death also allegedly killed herself.

(Excerpt)

Quote:
Yesterday an inquest into Paul's death in Blackpool, Lancashire, heard that his mother had complained three times to staff at Lytham St Annes High School that he was being bullied.

Mrs Moran, 45, told the hearing: "One day he came home covered in eggs and flour and crying his eyes out. He could not understand why he was being picked on and kept saying 'Why me, why me?'.

"They even tore his Liverpool football bag which upset him. The school bus stop was right outside our house but often he would get off a few stops earlier to avoid more trouble."

One day he was pushed out of his seat on the top deck and thrown down the stairs, and on another his boots were thrown off the bus, she said.

I can't stand this shit, I really can't. I had to transfer to another school to get away from shit like that. 9 times out of 10, though. the administration does nothing. "uh, yeah. Although you didn't start the fight and were put in a position to defend yourself, we are still going to suspend you for a week (!!!!) " Whatever.

I've often thought that teachers in these cases should be bought up on charges of negligent homicide.

I'm not so sure about this story, but some of these stories are just so painfully obvious that the teacher knew (or should have known) something was going to happen and they just failed to report it.

Edit: And my prayers are with both of them during the Christmas season. I'm sure the the discovery had a long lasting effect on that boy's sister.

Whoops. Never mind what I said about it not being applied to this case. There should be a criminal investigation to those who carelessly managed the three complaints. And, I'm no fan of lawsuits, but it sounds like the administrators and the school should definitely be sued.

I was bullied as a child but I also have a teacher as a parent. I agree that something needed to be done and that in most cases nothing is ever done, but I don't think that means we should charge the teachers with homicide. Merely using one extreme example to propose another equally extreme solution is not a wise way to handle the problem.

It amazes me how common bullying is even today. Many of the parents I know don't seem to mind if their kid is a bully to other kids so long as they don't get caught. Sometimes I'll ask them what kind of Christian in Jesusland willingly lets their kids go around punching other kids, but they're all convinced it's no big deal.

Got that right AOM.

Parents all over this country are discussing the bullying problem but nobody seems to be willing to take the steps needed to really address it. For starters, teachers absolutely will not say anything negative to parents about their children. That needs to stop. A lot of parents here have absolutely no idea what little terrors their otherwise studious kids are to others.

Agreed.

How can we consider charging a teacher/school administrator with responsibility for this type of action when the parents aren't held accountable.

If the home life is such that no one gives a damn, all the browbeating by the teachers/administrators isn't going to matter.

In recent years (the last two or so) Anchorage School District has really begun to crack down HARD on bullying in schools. It was quite a problem here in years past. This school district has a very, very long way to go, but the punishment for bullying is quite strict. The school district had been sued several times in recent years - and that (IMO) is what forced them to strengthen their position on bullying.

That does not however solve the problem of what happens off school grounds/off the school bus. Where does the responsibility of the school district end and the responsibility of the parent begin. IMO, the parental responsibility does not and should not end. But there must be a line for the school district.

Lets start by taking the parents of these bullies to task. IMO, if parents did their jobs in this country at least 25% of the time, a lot of problems would be solved. Instead we have the X-Box generation with no respect for anything or anyone . . . and they are running rampant.

There was an interesting video made here in Canada called "A Girl's World" which I saw in a Social Justice class in my 2nd year, still stands out in my mind. Essentially a camera crew was sent to a public school and filmed girls and their relationships with one another. It was phenomenal the amount of bullying that went on, and the pressures that some of these young girls felt. Eventually the parents were confronted with the video of their girls behavior, and subsequently the girls themselves. Very interesting to see the dichotomy between the parents of the bullies say "that's just girls being girls" and those parents whose children were being bullied.

I also recalled another video in which bullying led to a girls suicide in Eastern Canada, eventually charges were brought against the bullies, a few were convicted of very minor offenses, and of course, mostly under the YOA (Young Offenders Act).

In any case, bullying in schools needs to be addressed, punishments should be harsh, but in the end, I think a lot of times bullying is hard to spot and possibly even more difficult to back up with tangible evidence.

Lucky for me our school is quite simple

We have video cameras all over our school
We have bus aunties to control any violence
If ever a complaint is made against someone for verbal bullying then he is monitored very closely by the school authorities
If a person is caught bullying anyone he/she is given a stern warning and it goes inside your portfolio
If that same person is caught again then he is given a suspension from 3-5 days
If he/she is caught again than he will either be asked to leave or be expelled

These are the rules as far as I am aware

Verbal bullying has very harsh consequences and if a person has gotten into trouble before than action will be taken respectively and at all times all parents will be notified to make sure that your student dosent become a bully

Our school is extremely strict on bullying especially racism, which I have been subjected to a few times, but generally the teachers handle it very well.

Regards

These children who are approximately my age shouldnt be subjected to this violence. Your morale goes extremely low

ANCFlyer, Ill have to agree with you there. As a member of the 'X-box generation' I can say that my parents brought me up to respect others, and especially adults.

But those rues werent implied on the children in the school when i was younger. I was bullied very severely, but stoutely told my parents not to report it, as I knew i could handle it on my own. See, after a while, the criticism just bounced. 'Hehe, youre a fatty!' Me: 'Oh really, you think? Im so flattered you noticed. *louder voice* wait, you want touch my balls?!?!'

Now, im 6'3", 215, abd i can deliver one mean punch, so im left alone. but i do sticj up for the smaller ones. just the other day a fat kid was being teased before school, and yelled at him (it was in a classroom before school) to shut the hell up, well he didnt. so i walked over, picked him up by his shirt (a wonderful tactic, I must say) and told him that if didnt shut his trap, I MIGHT just have to teach him how. I didnt have to teach, by the way.

Cheers,
Kyle

My wife's cousins were around 10 or 11 when the family emigrated to Perth in the late 70's. Being the new kids and pom kids at school in oz was hell, at that time, and they had to enrol in karate and kick the sh!t out of their assailants a few times before they were left alone.

The problem with bullying is once you're seen as a target then more people feel the need to join in. And at schools there are no sanctions. What can you do to the bully? Detention? Expulsion? A fine? And there are 24 hours in a day, not just the time at school and going to and from school, where you can be bullied by email, text, blog or whatever.


What is so sad is that abuse of children by adults results in all sorts of action, but kids doing much the same to other kids is shrugged away as "well what can we do?"

This is truly a tragic story. Sadly, the bullying phenomenon is not uncommon at all. I just wonder how many bullied students are driven to desperate measures--especially suicide? Bullying is an inexcusable, tragic phenomenon that CAN and WILL destroy the victim. From personal experience, I know that kids can be the most cruel, inhuman savages out there.

With my craniofacial anomalies, I have experienced severe bullying myself--especially in my junior high years (1988-1990). This was a living hell for me. It was a daily thing for me to experience--verbal taunting, physical abuse, even death threats on occasion from classmates at my public middle school. Even the principal of the middle school did not do anything about it; in fact, one day he told my mom to her face that "the kids would give Francis more respect if he'd just take off that 'Walkman'"--he was referring to the large, bulky hearing aid I was wearing then! Before that, I had faced rejection from teachers at my previous parochial elementary school (in fact, that school did not even want me in the first place). In fact, it destroyed me emotionally for several years afterwards--I became like a zombie, cold, and hard on the outside.

It took many years to recover from the "purgatory" of junior high--even after I had transferred out of my public school system to a smaller college-preparatory high school (where for the first time ever I felt welcomed and loved and treated with human dignity). Even in the nurturing environment of my high school, I still had to learn to trust people again and express my feelings (which I had deeply buried inside myself); I was for a few years a cold, hard, zombie-type person, just going through the motions of life. However in that environment, I began to come out of my shell, trust people again, and finally begin to become the person I was meant to be and to meet my potential.

It was due to my faith in God (which I somehow held onto, even in the hell of junior high), my supportive family, my high school, and my friends, that I was able to become myself again, meet my potential, and go on to do what I am doing now here in London.

What might have happened eventually to me if I had not been able to escape the situation in junior high or recover from it? I shudder to think what might have happened to me ultimately...

When will this atrocity called bullying stop? When will school administrators, teachers, and others realize it and start cracking down on it?

Lucky for me my teachers were alert enough to prevent the worst of it, but still many days in school for me were hell.
Often enough I was afraid to go outside during breaks, only in the classroom was I left alone (good thing about an old fashioned school, the teachers didn't allow disturbances) and when outside I'd always stay in visual contact with supervising teachers.
If that failed, I could count on bruises and torn clothes.

Being the kid who's good at math and other scholarly subjects but bad at sports, AND wearing glasses, AND living outside the village, I was the perfect victim.

I was happy when that school was done and I could get to another school where I wasn't such an outcast, but I never turned into a person who likes socialising.
25 years on I'm still pretty much a loner, shaped by the bullies of a bygone era.

In this case, it sounds like the mother complained to the school, and did have more than a passing interest in what was going on.

I got bullied quite a bit when I was young-I was always very small compared to most in my class-but it was never to the extent of what it said in that article.

How about charging the parents of the kids who were unmerciful to this kid, if you can identify them? Seems like that's where a lot of the responsibility lies as well.

Hope the Good Lord is merciful to those two kids, and their families.

Someone at the school (I'm assuming a Vice Principal or Principal) was alerted to the bullying three times.

Now, imagine if this were a patient at an ER instead. The patient went up to a physician and said "I'm having chest pain and nausea" three times and each time the physician didn't act. The patient then died. Everyone on this board, and I'm sure you yourself (rightfully so) would be saying the physician should be sued and loose his license.

I don't see this being any different.

Normal teasing is, I think, just part of regular life and I don't think people should go nuts about it. After all, they'll just face it at some point later in life, in college, at work, in their neighborhood, whatever.

But when it crosses a certain line, like this case did, someone needs to intervene.

That's horrible the principal did that. He should have been fired on the spot for that comment. It seems like schools, especially public ones, are just a breeding ground for spineless, lazy and incompetent individuals.

Almost did to me. But it conjurs up memories of being humiliated by people when I was little, and how much it hurt, and how you didn't want to tell anyone.

I think of Emilio Estevez's character in "The Breakfast Club", and how he tells the story of taping together the buns of a weak skinny kid once, and how humiliated the kid must have been. And it is terribly humliating.

If people only stopped to THINK for a minute how they'd feel, they'd refrain from such idiocies.

No I'm quite sure 'teasing' didn't start in 2002 . . . . in fact I can vividly remember getting teased quite a lot because of my last name, but in school, and after joining the Army - at that point, you weren't even a glimmer in anyone's eye.

The point is - because apparently it flew right by you at Warp Drive - that parents these days do NOT take their children to task in this country. Societal pressures of two jobs, no time, the internet, the television, go ,go, go, and the child is left hanging. If parents took the time to be PARENTS, much of the issues facing today's teens/young adults wouldn't be issues at all - or would be mitigated by a parental structure more concerned with their child(ren) than the next issue of Cosmo or Monday night football.
