Bullying must be stopped no matter who is the target. So what if someone is different? That doesn't give anyone the right to bully/beat/act mentally deranged at them. Disgusting behavior I have never understood. Many of us have had to whoop on a bully at some point in the grade school years. It wasn't right and I got my share of detention, etc, but I will not stand there and let it happen to anyone, period. I fault their parents for not raising them right and the staff at the schools for not noticing and doing something about it!
