I've been there myself. I was Peter Parker personified in school up until about the 9th grade. When the testosterone kicked in everything changed rapidly and no longer was I on the receiving end. All it took was a total of 3 punches to two different kids and they never gave me another problem after that. I didn't start the fights, but when I was shoved, I finished them. My kid is pretty good sized, he's fast, and he's in martial arts. This other kid though was held back a year, has about 50lbs on him, and is trying to go down the extortionist give me your lunch money route. I honestly thought that was a thing of the past, but I guess not. If the principal thing doesn't work out and the situation continues, I'll have to show my kid how to be more effective than what he's learning in karate. Might have to switch his karate class for JKD eventually, would probably be money better spent there anyway.

Sidekick to the knee will take out anybody and the kid will never bully again because that injury will last him a lifetime as a reminder.

One time, in middle school, this one boy kept picking on me. (He was a bully and troublemaker) Finally, I had enough and I kicked him in the family jewels. :D
It was in front of some of his buddies to, and a girl doing that to a boy...well, lets just say he was humbled a little bit. He left me alone after that. BTW, I had to go to the Principle's Office, but he knew the situation and just laughed his butt off about it.  :w00t:

Hate to admit it but I was a bully to this one boy in about 4-5th grade or so.  Never physical, but name calling and picking on him.  Well, I was doing it one day and this other huge kid took exception to it and socked me right in the eye.  It hurt like hell, but it also taught me a huge lesson.  I never picked on anyone like that ever again.

I don't know why I did it, my parents would have had a fit if they learned I did.  Glad I was able to see the 'light' so to speak.

I also have had my share of it from the other side as well.  I feel karma taught me well.

I remember when i was in school, there was this student two years older then me who use to bully me and another four or five kids. One day all of us got together and met him in the park. We didn't hurt him so much as scare him, but he did leave us alone after that. :whistle:  Sadly, sometimes you just need to stand up and face the threat :/ Because honestly, bullying will never end, its in our instincts to bully (as it is with most animals).

Dang. The OP's post article is disturbing.

I was bullied as a kid, but never thought about suicide.

Maybe the bullying is worse now, I don't know.

Very sad story.    Early teens is a hard time to go through.  
I went to grade school with a bully.  One day he bullied me somehow at recess  and  to my shock and amazement i suddenly had him down and was rubbing snow in his face!  lol,  he was so shocked he was sort of paralyzed!    I rose from the skirmish to smiles of approval  .. and as i strode away victoriously,  he  ran up behind me and knocked me down.    I just got up calmly and walked away...  for  i had already won the day.       Funny though,  it made us closer.    lol

You can try to teach them to deal with it but when you have someone in your face everyday I would imagine it would be difficult to deal with.  Who knows what this kids home life was like either.

I think the bullies that tormented this kid should face some sort of punishment.  Maybe they didn't pull the trigger but their actions caused it.

Plus where did he get the gun?

what i was wonderin.... where did an 8 year ld get the gun AND how did he get it into school.

WTF???? It is not instinct at all! You are taught/shown it, that it is ok to bully, either other pupils or parents or tv!!
**** OFF. IT IS NOT INSTINCT.

While you're disgusted, I'm jealous;  I would love to live in the utopia where diplomacy always works and violence doesn't exist.

Violence in limited use is in many regards more effective than talking.
