this has nothing to do with it. we have not supported the kids actions. but just cuz they are wrong for something doesn't mean we should twist laws over step boundary's. if you do then your actions are no better then the child. how can you tell a kid to respect whats right an wrong then turn around an not follow your own rules you set for them. it is action like that which create the mess. it's like telling a cop he doesn't have to follow the laws when he is trying to catch a criminal. if you do that now the cop is just as much a criminal as the criminal.
but as for the bully thing. on set days any white kid that went to school got jumped. many kids would skip cuz they was scared. then others would goto school an fight. those of us who was willing to fight back was left alone while the ones who ran didn't. we earned our respect. i went to a very very ruff school.
as a parent no one wants there kid picked on or beat up or hurt in anyway. but what we are doing is making things worse. we try to shelter our kids now an protect them from everything bad. because of this they are not able to handle it as well when it happens. here is an example. you have a kid an you place him in a bubble from birth/ no germs ever get to this child. at 21 years old you let him out . he catches a common cold an dies. he never built up his immune system so when even the smallest issue came to him it was to much for him. we are doing the same to our kids. kids killing themselves over being called names now. when i was a kid we was told sticks an stones will break our bones but names will never hurt me. it does suck but you learn from it also. all people have been picked on to some degree at some point. but the pain an suffering is as much a part of us as the good things. all of it has helped us grow into the adults we are today. if you try to remove all the bad from your life you would not be the same person an you would not be able to deal with things you can now. life isn't all pony's an rainbows an kids will never learn this the way we all keep trying to shelter them. we as a country are becoming to over protective now. our pain makes us stronger in the long run
You just don't get it.. It has everything to do with it. What boundaries were bypassed? These kids committed an act of vandalism in a horrid despicable way and by the looks of it they had parental asitance doing it.
It's not a matter of just going to school and getting beat up anymore. If it were then it would be stand your ground and if you got beat up fine, but its not that way anymore. Kids today are relentless. They will single out someone out for their appearance, nationality religion etc and torment them non stop to the point where things like suicide or mass murder are viable options. Its wrong. It isn't a matter of creating a nanny state as you put it. It's a matter of trying to stop the cycle of hate. The parents of the these bullies are just as much to blame due to their failed parental skills as the children are for committing the acts. Think about it if the parents are either refusing to discipline their child for being a bully or in the case such as this actually take part in it then what? By this they are teaching their children that this is perfectly acceptable social behavior. Its just another example of the crumbling of morals and parental responsibility in our nation. It's not a matter of some parents trying to be over protect their children.
So what do you propose to fix the problem? have the kids that are tormented strike back? How about they turn to violence? How about we let them all carry guns to school. Do you want to create a fear state where the slightest dirty look can get you shot?
seriously by your example we should encourage our children to go beat the crap out of each other..
