This is so easy, you identify the bully, go to mom and dad, tell them to staighten the kid up or they face jail and fines. You have to go to the pocket book to get results.

It has the official seal of approval from Bozo Bob which means it has to be good. Just another law to pass down to local jurisdictions, or in this case the school boards, "to implement policies on bullying". This bill will do nothing to protect a child when they leave school. Social media has become the number 1 way to bully, taunt or humiliate children in today's society. Freedom of speech is guaranteed by the Constitution but Bozo has to appear to be doing something in his last year (thank God) in office.

Have you considered a run for Governor yet? You really should because you have all the answers. I would be willing to bet that you would carry Charlottesville City in an election. What is your degree in; Political Science, Astro Physics, Engineering...? Your level of intelligence is astounding and I'm sure there is not another person that would dare to challenge you in a debate.

Case in point: you just used social media (this forum) to spread "bullying language" aimed at the Governor.

I just removed my child from Augusta County Schools because no one cares from the principle; teacher and school board about bullying and this has gone on since September. The teacher "just doesn't see it." Maybe if someone actually monitored kids during lunch they would know! To have my child who is out going and sweet is outragious. Shame on you for ignoring what is going on in the schools. She will now be homeschooled. Ignoring it only creates more New town and Columbine insidents not to mention others!
