I'm glad that the sheriff's office launched this campaign. Bullying unfortunately goes unnoticed in our schools. I hope that they also try to educate counselors and principals a little more so that school employees can recognize signs of bullying and be prepared to stop it. My daughter had a very tough school year because she was bullied. And I spend almost everyday at the school trying to get someone there to do something about it. It took me 3 months until I got the principal of the school to stop calling the situation "Drama" and finally put a stop to it.

The sad thing is almost all of this could be stopped quickly if we are willing to hold people accountable. The truth is that most of the ones doing the “bullying” are known, a lot of the administrators do not want to deal with the parents who will scream “my kid would never act like that”, or the coaches/sponsors crying because their players/participants are now ineligible.

Do the schools and law enforcement not have better things to do? Bullying is apart of human nature, kids will always be A-holes. What you do with bullies is outsmart them or simply stand your ground.Bullies have been around since humans have been on earth and no government program will be able to do anything about it.

Rusk School in 1957 had an easy cure for bullies. You poked them in the nose a time or two. Didn't really matter if you won or lost. The bully knew he/she was in for trouble next time. Or maybe your brother or friend stood up for you if you needed it.

But those days are gone forever. Let government raise your kids you lazy a$$clown parents!

This isn't 1957. In today's context,'poking them in the nose' means stabbing their face with a switch blade, and if he lives next time he'll bring a gun. Catch a clue. Also, even 15 years ago when I was in school, I got in serious trouble for smashing a bully's face with a tennis racket, so don't give me this "fight back" garbage. As far as adults are concerned, they think lord of the flies is necessary, as long as nobody _really_ fights back, so don't give me that stuff.

You want bullying to end, put in judo or karate instead of football.
