Its too bad when we need our court system to tell parents they are not doing a good job. :nono;

That being said, the school bullies need some good PT also.

It's really too bad when we let people use strength to cause someones life to be so miserable that they kill themselves. What gives some the audacity to think that they have the right to victimize others, because of a smell? My reality wasn't defined around proving my superiority. We used to stop bullies. Just because we could didn't mean we would. I'm always amazed at some of the lame excuses people use to hide their viciousness.
Last year I interfered in an argument when I thought a man was going to use a cooler to hit a woman ( wasn't violent just insisted that he step back or put down the cooler). This year the same guy tries to throw another woman off a dock. For a year I had been questioning whether I had had the right to interfere. I think we need to be more proactive in stopping bad situations. Who knows mabe the smelly kid could have become someone who generally might have made the place better? This is an outcome of the designed values of the "my, me, mine" mind set.
