Bullying must be addressed by everyone, and this sort of story must become a thing of the past. It is the last common crime against humanity in the US to reduce.

Bullying happens in places where far too many human beings are concentrated against their wishes. Since there is such a high concentration and not enough guards, the bullying will always happen. When you have teachers who would rather throw a bullied victim to the dogs to placate peace for the remaining, we have a de-facto daycare that is run by overpaid and under qualified staff.

So places like prisons, booth cams, day cares, kindergardens and schools are natural sites of this. One option to deal with this is to declare "bullying free zones". I know it is known to do miracles both to prevent school shootings and drug dealings. The problem is that such an edict will

have to be read aloud every morning to ensure the illiterates also get it.

Replace "kids" with "Nazis" in your tautology.
