What´s the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them,´ Keaton asked his mother through tears. ´It´s not okay,´ he said. (Video/Photos) His mother then asked: ´What did they say to you?´ ´They make fun

In today´s society, people in the media basically bully people that they don´t deem to be beautiful or thin or Democrats. I just saw where some "comedian" named Chelsea made fun of Sarah Huckabee because she is not a slim woman who puts on heavy makeup every day. What she said about Sarah amounts to bullying. I feel sorry for the young man who is crying out for help. I hope he makes a difference.

Having been bullied from first grade through high school I feel for this kid. I asked the same questions. I wondered why kids in other classes or older kids took time out of their day just to say something mean.

I was lucky, I had a strong family at home and a core set of good friends. I got through it by pretending that I didn´t hear them.

That didn´t mean that I didn´t want to fall in a hole or disappear on many occasions. I would take stock of who was around knowing that maybe only a few hear it at a time. In an odd way I credit them for making me a kinder person.

I cannot imagine what a kid goes through today with the Internet. Saying "The whole school knows" is probably the case these days.

I think the real lesson is that NOT EVERY KID joined in. There were kind and compassionate kids back then as I´m sure there are now. It starts at home. Parents taught "The Golden Rule," and school´s reinforced it.

Take away the power of the teachers and principal to discipline and this is what you get. Kids are always testing what they can get away with. They know that schools and staf are scared of lawsuits. So they do stuff like this, that kids for generations have done --- only kids from previous generations knew that they´d get walloped in school - and in some cases, if they got walloped at school, there´d be another walloping waiting for them at home.

At twelve, I got fed up with this one bully harrasing me daily on the playground. For the last time, he came at me and I just lit into him with all I had, even though he outweighed me by forty pounds. Afterwards, I opened my eyes to see him running off. He hadn´t bothered me since. I learned that bullies are cowards. My advice to this poor kid is to haul off and smack the biggest one who taunts him. He might lose a tooth or two, but those bullies will learn he´s not an easy mark and bother someone else.

#4 is right. I had a sweet, quiet friend in the sixth grade who became the target of our school bully...until he started it in front of me one day. I literally beat the snot out of him (they took him to the doctor after) and when the principal and my teacher came into the class to "talk" to me about it, the other kids stood up for me.

They didn´t do anything themselves, but when I did, they let the principal,etc. know what a little creep the kid was, with details.

That was the end of his bullying because its hard for an eleven-year old boy to be a bully when a little girl beats him up.

That doesn´t seem to be happening so much anymore. Everyone is afraid his parents would sue. Very sad situation. Hope it works out for Keaton.

Kids must learn to stand up for themselves. I´m over 70 and am aghast at how kids are browbeaten by the system into being targets of these little miscreants. If this kid would step up and lay a smack down on his aggressor, or at least try to physically defend himself, he might find they would be leaving him alone. To HELL with the PC BeeEss infecting too much of Western Civilization...

#4- Excellent post. Would add that improper parenting as well as a sound religious foundation in today’s society of government entitlement households with single-parents and a me-first mentality are significant factors in the behavior of today’s children--thanks in good measure to the “counterculture” of the 1960s. “Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.” (Proverbs 13:24)

The only thing that stops a bully is getting beat up, preferrably in front of a bunch of witnesses so he his publicly embarrassed.

Look at "A Christmas Story" and what happened to Skut Farcas. This is absolutely the only solution, from personal experience. My family moved around a lot when I was a kid, and I liked it, but one thing was that "the new kid" was frequently tried on by the bullies, esp when small. Fat lip and bloody nose always fixed it and amazingly, the few little simple tips my father gave me about boxing worked well against kids who knew zip about it. I was friends with one of the former bullies until in my 20s when we lost touch. Kids are a lot like a wolf pack, always looking for a pecking order. You have to prove that you are not on the bottom.

Good on you, #6. Hero, even as a kid.

Look at some actors and actresses, newspaper reporters and editors, they bully constantly if someone isn´t of their liking, it isn´t polite disagreement it is bullying, i.e. Sarah Sanders, Melania Trump, Sarah Palin many Republican people. The kids see it daily by adults, it happens in the workplace.

I was very poor and homely but I went to 12 years of parochial school and never got bullied. They taught love there for everyone. now my grandkids go to parochial school at much greater expense but they are safe there as well. I pity those stuck in the NYC public schools. No protection for them where cowardly progressives are in charge.

Agree with the above L-dotters, fighting back is the only way to stop a bully. They are indeed cowards.

Also have to admit, the nuns in my day cared for and protected all of the students. They understood human nature so much more keenly than educators today.

Schools now teach kids to "talk it out" and settle their differences. Works for a bit, then it is right back to obnoxious bulling behavior. Punching back is forbidden. This is the sad state of Liberal education in our taxpayer funded, government run, indoctrination centers.

Children can be very cruel to others without realizing how hurtful they are being. This is where parents of bullies need to up their game and give their kids a talking to.

So much of the world is based on physical appeal and perfection. The female cosmetics industry is one such example. Hollywood is another example. Appearance fascism is widespread.

Bullying isn´t just about establishing a pecking order but also about malicious cruelty.

My son was a redhead, tall and slim in High School. He had friends, but he had some sick tormentors. He kept it to himself till I found out. I told him If anyone starts anything, tear into him and don´t let up till someone pulls you off him. He was capable of messing someone up, he just didn´t want to. I said I love the man he is, but it won´t stop till he confronts the problem and when he does I will back him all the way, no matter how it goes.

The next day he squared off against the punk who of course was smaller than him, but with a big mouth. When the little sadist saw he might end up thrown against some lockers, he immediately claimed, he was just fooling around. Never bothered him after that.

My son graduated, moved to Boston worked his way up at a couple of jobs and now has a great job. His employers love his work ethic and he will marry his girlfriend this Spring. He hated High School, but understands it taught him a lot about some people, but more about himself.

One thing I notice is that most people have more in common than they think. We see this young guy telling his Mom about this horrible incident of bullying, and people from ALL walks of life come to his defense and offer him friendship. Most decent humans hate this kind of behavior. To see the outpouring of kindness to this beautiful child from such disparate kinds of people gives me hope.

Got bullied throughout grade school and high school. Quickly learned to fight back. Simply put, I knew the bullies weren´t my friends, and I did not care what they thought.

In fourth grade, some little Einstein thought it would be cute to pull a switchblade comb on me when the teacher was out of the room. He ended up on his back with my desk on top of him, and me on top of the desk with my hands around his throat before I realized it was a comb. His problems were only starting. The nun (this was a catholic school) in the sixth grade class room across the hallway saw the entire thing, and thought it was a switchblade. She came in and beat the snot out of him. Both our parents were called. He was suspended for three days, and not invited back the next year. Basically expelled.

Bullies had a tendency to get in my face. I would wait, and then shove my fist in their mouth. None of them ever tried twice. Never got in trouble. Teachers knew who were the trouble makers.

Doubt if it would work today. Schools suspend everyone.

Avoided most of the real thugs in high school. Most of my classes were advanced so did not have to contend with them. Bullies aren´t smart.

Worst time were classes where the teachers were lax on discipline, and the lunch room when no teachers were present. When the teachers were on the lookout for bullies, it did not happen.

Today´s schools have a "No Tolerance" policy for physical contact.

My son was being bullied by a kid in gym. He warned the kid not to touch him again. The kid did and my son went after him. They were both suspended.

In talking to the older Dean of Students, he said they had made up by the time they met with him but it was "school policy". They got an extended Christmas break.

Idiocy times100. As for the young man in this video, he is right. It will get better. He needs to change schools or survive until college. That changes everything!

The thing is, the schools know who the bullies are and rarely do anything to stop it because their hands are tied by a system that cares more bully and not about the person being bullied (kind of like the legal system in general). Bullies need to be removed from regular schools and put in alternative schools, and let them bully one another. That, or their parent must accompany their bully to their classes and discipline them when needed. Having parents miss work due to their children´s behavior would make it more likely that they´d actually punish their little angels instead of defending them. And the humiliation of being accompanied by their parent all day would be a worthwhile punishment. A few days of this, or however long it´s needed, would go a long way toward stopping the bullying.

I think adults are often complicit in the bullying. Some parents, mothers in particular, revert to being mean girls when they have kids. I also think that many parents tend to take an ostrich approach to what is happening in school. Many kids do not tell their parents they are being bullied. A boy once spit in my face after school and I didn´t tell my parents or anyone else. Parents need to tell their kids that they should tell them if anyone bullies or abuses them. They need to ask what is going on. Kids think it is their fault or that telling will make the
situation worse. And teachers need to tell students bullying is wrong and will not be tolerated.

True story. In 1958 I was in 8th grade. Another 8th grader was picking on me. For the life of me I don´t know why. The principal, who was also out teacher saw it. Told the perp to get upstairs. The principal happened to be carrying a softball. He threw that ball as hard as he could, hitting the perp in the back. I never had another issue with him and actually never had one before. But he was a low IQ dipstick.

Bullies only understand force, hard fact.

I have a number of friends who are police officers, although most are now retired. There is a certain class of thugs that cause a lot of trouble, and in the old days, the cops on the beat pretty soon knew who they were.

Occasionally, they had to convince an adult bully/troublemaker to cut it out. Generally worked for them, too.

Today, like in the schools, the bad are protected by the rules and the good guys will get punished if they take care of business.

#27, probably no father around, so common these days. Root cause in many family and social problems.

Thank goodness my father was there, and when I went to him for help, he taught me a few good boxing fundamentals in about 5 minutes and sent me on my way.
Couple of days later, bully had a busted lip and a whole different attitude, and about 30 witnesses to his defeat. I think that kept other bullies in check, too. I wonder what ever happened to Mike Norton?

Thanks to my father, even though he spent a lot of time at sea in the Navy.

Excellent posts all. I, too was the target of bullies for several years in the 60´s. Then one fine day the pituitary fairy fluttered over my bed and I got big. Way bigger than any of them way faster. I beat up a few of them and the problems stopped, for the most part.
There were sporadic problems with the little kids who had the backing of their big friends. They often do it in groups and egg each other on.
Do not ever expect any help from the school administration. They get new bullies every year and after a few years they are cycled through. They genuinely dont care.
That does not include the racial problems back then. I went to a couple schools where it was a crime to be white and punishment was frequent and painful. The teachers were no help because they didnt want to be the next targets.
Mostly it ended when we discovered beer and girls, but the bitterness still remains. I hope every one of those sorry sob´s gets VD from their wives after long stays in prison, followed by beatdowns from skinheads. Then I want mean stuff to happen.

Trump is having a ball, for good reasons.Trump´s first year as president may have been the most extraordinary since the 1840s. While Trump has disrupted almost all presidential governance and communication norms, his tenure so far has produced capital market gains of some $7 trillion, spreading investment wealth to millions of regular Joes and Marys, while tax cuts have already distributed $3 billion in bonuses and wage hikes to over 2 million workers and counting.

Actress Suzanne Somers says she’s “happy” about President Trump’s first year in office, even if saying so ends her career in Hollywood. “I’m happy about him,” she told TMZ in an interview published Monday. “I’m happy that the economy’s doing so much better.” Somers said it’s “very rare” for someone in Hollywood to compliment Trump. “And now my career is over,” she laughed. The actress said in 2014 that the Obama administration was “the most divisive of all the administrations” in her lifetime.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

New text messages from anti-Trump FBI agents reviewed by investigators reportedly make reference to a "secret society," in what could be the nail in the coffin for special counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation. Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months´ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one

Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair. It´s probably safe to say there is not a single

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called the government shutdown a “manufactured crisis” created by Democrats who want a permanent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix, which he referred to as a “non-emergency” issue that does not belong in the short-term spending bill to continue federal government operations. “The one non-emergency issue our friends on the other side of the aisle are trying to shoehorn into this discussion doesn’t reach that status of emergency until March. This is pure folly. The American people know so, that´s why in a recent survey a majority said keeping the government open

Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,

The Senate on Monday was set to hold a successful vote to reopen the federal government, after Senate Democrats agreed to let the bill through even though it doesn´t include immigration language they are seeking. "We will vote today to reopen the government to continue negotiating a global agreement," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the floor. Under the bill up to be called up, the government would be fully funded through Feb. 8, and it would fund the Children´s Health Insurance Program for six years. It would also reopen the government, which has been partially closed since midnight

It has been four months since Megyn Kelly earned the wrath and ire of Jane Fonda for asking the 80-year-old actress about her plastic surgery, and the NBC host is now responding to the backlash. That moment occurred during Kelly´s third episode when she asked the Oscar-winner about what work she had done in the past, which prompted a steely Fonda to stare Kelly down and ask: ´We really want to talk about that now?´ Since then Fonda has complained about the question to a number of outlets, and even mocked Kelly´s question on Today last week during an interview
