Thread: Tragedy/bullying in Schools

  1. #11
    I would expect that somebody in the school knows who the bully is. What happens to that kid?

    Back in the day, if a kid was bullied and decided to fight back... parents would be called into the office and it would be discussed and handled. Now, police are involved, lawyers can get involved, and snowflakes are damaged.

    Different world now...
    Really, my son is still in High School in St Mary's Co.
    No police, no lawyers, no school board meetings, no suspensions for my son.
    Just a dad that documented every time he went to my sons school over this, documented every phone call and so on.
    Both times my son finely picked his hands up to put a end to someone hassling and putting their hands on him almost weekly. The School system didn't have a leg to stand on.

    They take him aside and give him special attention, tell him how it's ok to be misunderstood..

    Counseling.. special classes.. special treatment..

    AND he continues to bully others..

    They did a that sillyness with the boy that hassled my son in Elementary School.
    Single Mom with three kids in school and Mom worked in a different school in the county. The kid couldn't be suspended or expelled because there was no one to watch this child. The instant cure was three or four punches to the face and a right foot to the side of his knotty head.
    Problem solved for my son anyway. A few months later this kid pulled out his weiner on the school bus. He went to DC to live with his grandparents.

    Ummm..... wouldn't that be the parent(s) who did nothing to curb this behavior's problem? The parent would have to deal with getting the kid back into school somewhere. The school is responsible to the entire school... not one child. Since when did the school system become financially responsible for the child?

    A big problem now-a-day is that some parents use the school more as a daycare/sitter than an educational institution. Dropping their snowflakes off with obvious sickness, never participating in school functions, and expecting the school itself to deal with the problems. THIS is one major reason why some of these issues exist!

    This article release March 1st in the Enterprise: http://www.somdnews.com/enterprise/n...5d41548c0.html

    Students of color, low income and disabilities are disproportionately suspended for disrespect and disruption at St. Mary’s public schools, compared to their white peers, according to data presented at a recent NAACP meeting.

    “We know the suspensions are not working,” Charles Ridgell, director of student services, said at the Feb. 23 NAACP St. Mary’s branch meeting held at the Lexington Park library. “It gives the students a nice vacation and in many cases but it doesn’t always solve their behavior. Many times they are more challenging.” St. Mary’s rate of suspension is “not drastically different” from the national rates, he said.


    I have read the entire article and nowhere does it state that those held accountable for their bad behavior are wrongly called out. The entirety of the article shows that our schools are more concerned with appeasing the NAACP by trying to reduce the numbers for students of color, low income and disabilities being called out for bad behavior than they are of actually dealing with those harassing other students as well as teachers. As long as our school boards are more concerned with political correctness than they are with student and teacher safety we can't expect a safe haven for students who are in school to learn.

    In all seriousness, that Andy Griffith fight back and the bully will leave you alone bull#### is just that. Unless you can actually whip the bully's ass, fighting back is exactly what they want. An excuse to vent some frustration on you.

    Believe it or not, your skinny McFly is not going to lay Biff out with one punch and then go to the dance with the girl.
    I don't believe I've ever been a bully, I'll say I have stood up for many in my life that will not stand up for themselves.
    My brother and I were taught old Okinawan Karate by our Father, a 4th Dan.
    You know,,,, wax on... wax off.
    Kata's and workouts almost daily in my father's house.
    My dad wasn't much on sparring, we fought in his basement.
    Lessons came quick and painful.
    We were taught how to defend ourselves, it matters not of it's a school or a bar room.
    Bully's are mostly the same everywhere, lots of talk and yelling while pointing a finger at you. What generally they are not is fighters.
    Like Mike Tyson so eloquently stated,
    everyone has a plan, till they get punched in the face.

    People that know how to fight don't stand there in a argument ranting and posturing with hand or hands down on there sides.
    If his hands are up around his middle or higher, be prepared, he most likely has some education.

A bully was looking for a fight and often targeted "unpopular" people because they didn't want to fall out with the cool kids, and obviously they don't pick fights where they are liable to get their ass whooped.

    If a bully pushed you into a locker it wasn't to hurt your feelings, it was to provoke you to take a swing at him and give him an excuse to knock your teeth in.

    Blame whatever you want, abusive family, drugs, or just a mean streak (no puppies to torture).

    But maybe I just grew up in a tougher area, and the sissified bullies you talk about that run away at the first sign of resistance are really the majority. I doubt it though.

    And you can continue to tell me about how you taught your son the 1 finger Okinawan pirate death punch and therefore he never gets bullied, but that doesn't really invalidate my life observation. It might just mean you and your son are the bullies (waiting for someone to tease you about the color of your shoes so you can punch them in the throat).
    You need to work on your reading skills, I didn't teach my son to fight. I sent him to Karate class in Charlotte Hall. If you knew anything about Martial Arts you would know the last thing on the agenda is actually fighting. Walk away if possible.
    I grew up in the pussified town of Bethesda, with a father that was a career Navy Frogman,
    I also boxed at the YMCA on Old Georgetown Rd and entered the Marines in 76.
    I'm a combat veteran. I spent a few after that working in central Africa.
    I'm pretty well traveled and have had my share of wins and losses.
    I do believe I know what a bully is.
    And at 58, I'm still not afraid of them.
    Then again mostly I bully small stature gay men and lesbians.. Right?

    I believe your one of those that silly karate stuff... I would suggest you head up to Tolsons tonight and spar with one of those 12 to 16 year old girls and see how well it works out for you.
    I bet she tells you,,, " You hit like a Girl "

    .
    And that is exactly the crap that occurred often enough at Spring Ridge that we pulled our son out and paid for his attendance at private school. At least twice, he was literally forced to resort to force to defend himself, something he did ably enough because he's always been a tall lanky kid, if a bit on the skinny side. But fighting back made him a perpetual target too.

    After it became clear that the school administration was going to do nothing effective about the "gang-like" situation that required our son to constantly be looking to defend himself, we got him out.
