put up with it? move on? are you ignorant or just plain retarded? for one, i dont believe this kid commited suicide. and two, the soldier only got a 30 day jail sentence and demoted. the victim is dead, do you think thats justified? bullying is a serious issue and it can come to the point where a victim will commit suicide. what if you had a child who was bullied at school and he/she felt hopeless and just couldnt take it anymore? not only can it cause a child to do something horrendous like commit suicide, but far worst like harm another person(s). bullying can be ugly especially if the bulliest knows who theyre bullying is helpless. put up with it? move on? its not talking about something that just happens and goes away, it more like torturing another person to give up their bank account or theyll cut off your balls type of bullying.

This is not the "bullying" to which most people are referring. Extortion, torture, robbery...that is what YOU described. BIG difference.
