“It really doesn’t matter if he loses a fights against bullies. At least he is able to say that he stood up to them. And the real outcome is once you stand up to a bully, it is no longer worth the effort for the bully to pick on you if he knows he will be in a fight and will be hurt. There is always some softer, younger target to go after.”
That just isn’t always true.
My son fought a bully (and won) and the kid acted like it was a fluke. Came after my son a hundred times harder. It took more than a dozen beat-downs before the kid finally let up.
Then the kid went after easier targets and my son beat him up for *that*.
At one point, the kid reported my son for breaking his nose. Thankfully, the school had common sense and didn’t use zero tolerance against my kid.
This kid is a *criminal*. And you’re right. NO adult would have to tolerate this abuse.
What goes around comes around. I was 5-7 and 135 in high school and Nathan B was about 5-10 and 160, why he decided to pick on me I don’t know but I ended up fighting him 3 times and got my arse kicked all three times. After high school I went into the Army and he pursued his career as a part time oil field hand and professional bar fly.
Two years after I got out of the Army and as a rookie deputy with the Sheriff’s office we met again. I got a call about a domestic disturbance and when I got there his wifes face was covered in blood where he’s beat the hell out her, I later found out this wasn’t the first time. He knew who I was and laughed at the thought of me putting cuff’s on him and even taunted me. One hard blast of pepper spray to the face and he started hollering like a baby even after I cuffed him and took him to the ER to get cleaned up and a wound in his hand taken care of. He stayed in county until his trial (no bondsman would take him) then he got one year with the state. Vengance was mine!
He came back and stayed out of trouble for about 6 months then got involved in a income tax scam and got him another 10 years with the state and thats the last I heard about him. Couldn’t have happen to a nicer guy!
“Today, it isn't just **one** bully. It is a GANG of bullies!”
Our government schools are teaching minorities to **hate** whites. We should remember that. Honestly, there are schools that are soooo bad that it would be better for the child to **never** attend. Illiteracy and innumeracy can be fixed. Dead or crippled can't be.
