I saw this move Bully regarding the intimidating of children by children at school. It is rampant and goes on in the schools, buses, playgrounds, and small public gatherings. The person being bullied is hoping it will go away and tries their hardest to ride it out. They really don't know what to do. Meanwhile, if they do speak up, they have to bear the repercussions of that too. Let me explain
THE SYSTEM ITSELF IS IN TROUBLE
First of all, don't count on a third party especially a public institution for remedy, justice, fairness or results. The current systems across the United States don't work and feeding them more problems only makes it worse. The school systems do not know and do not want to know any more about this subject. Meanwhile, the statistics mount up of kids being abused
SCHOOLS NEED THE REVENUE SO YOUR KID HAS TO ATTEND
Here is where it gets dicey. The systems get money for every kid that attends. They really cant hold too many bad kids feet to the fire because they would have quite a big attendance and loss of income problem. If they try to single out the perpetrators, they can get sued so until the changes come from the top down, you get NO RESULTS, pat answers, and no closure. Its a vicious cycle
THIS POOR KID WHO MAY OR MAY NOT STAND OUT
Now back to this poor kid who is aching for a friend or just a normal school day. He cant use the rest room because if he gets cornered in there, no help will arrive. If he complains, the other kid or his friends will get even maybe not so much during school but after school too. His choices for remedy are near nil.
THE PARENTS DONT HAVE THE TIME OR KNOW WHAT TO DO
Then there is the trouble the picked on one gets into with the parents who are trying to make ends meet, who have no skill sets or time to deal with a bullying problem and instead of finding a solution, they blame the kid accusing him of not fighting back or doing something to provoke it all. He gets in trouble at home for being in trouble at school that is not his fault.
SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE..GOES UNHEARD
Lunch money gets taken while many bullies continue to build their reputation and hide their own fears by picking on the weak or scared kid. The scared kid just exudes fear and HIT ME comes right out of their pores and that is where they start to go crazy. They dont know why people seek them out, but they do continuously
POLICE HANDS ARE TIED UNTIL AFTER THE FACT
Law enforcement is bound by rules that don't interpret well to the problem. You see kids assault other kids on the sly and take great pains not to get caught. Threats cannot be acted upon is what any law enforcement will tell you. They must wait until after the assault or trauma and that is assuming it is reported. Meanwhile, it is open season on your kid
