Should bullies be punished?

Bullies should be excecuted, such people shouldn't be allowed to exist as an adult. It'll also give victims of bullying a kind of "wild card" they have to protect themselves.

Holy shi- WHAT NOW?! I hope that was satirical of you, because while they should be punished, NO ONE deserves the death penalty, especially children! They're just spoiled brats who'll grow out of that phase when they grow up. Saying they should die is probably the most psychopathic thing I've heard in a while.

Unless you're joking. In which case, forgive my outburst.

"Holy shi- WHAT NOW?! I hope that was satirical of you, because while they should be punished, NO ONE deserves the death penalty, especially children!"

I don't know about America, but in England where physical bullying does feature it's to the extreme, I heard one case where a child was grabbed by 4 children bigger than him and held down with his bare feet pressed against a boilding radiator, the burning flesh caused great pain to the child who couldn't walk properly for weeks. When his friend the captain fo the cricket team heard about it, he threatened to kill the bullies if they harmed his friend again. I think the threat of death works quite effectively on children.

"They're just spoiled brats who'll grow out of that phase when they grow up. Saying they should die is probably the most psychopathic thing I've heard in a while."

One of the reasons children bully is because they want to be socially powerful, and in the adult world social power is a key thing in many occupations, e.g Politics, Acting, Office jobs etc. I doubt those people will forget their bullying skills so easily when they want to become popular.

If it is a verbal bully, they should receive a warning. If they don't improve their behavior, they should be suspended. The punishment should become expulsion after that. A physical bully should immediately be expelled. Many schools preach about putting a stop to bullying but they don't take enough action. The child being bullied needs to know to tell an adult ASAP. There was a kid that used to bully my little brother. He would call my brother names, steal his toys and break them. He even got to the point where he was getting a little violent. This kid was a lot bigger than my brother too. My brother came home crying one day because this little brat slammed his toy gun on the ground and broke it. That was enough for me. I went outside to the kid. "Hey shithead! Time we had a talk". I forgot all I said to him but the kid ended up crying and I ended up giving that kids brand new toy gun to my brother. He quit bullying my brother after that. He knew what would happen if he did it again lol.

Sure... but I think we have to be sure to not go overboard... kids will be kids. As for adults... if the bullying doesn't rise to the level of a crime then no... unless the punishment itself wouldn't be considered a crime... like a little bullying back or embarrassing them.

Anyone who even thinks about degrading another human being should be slaughtered like the mongrel dog that they are, and their corpse should be mutilated and hung from a tree.

On a different note, "slaughtered" is a funny word. :)

Damn right they should. They should be bullied until there is practically nothing left of them; they should feel pain mentally and physically so that they know exactly how it feels next time they flush a nerds head down the loo - if they ever have the nerve to do it again that is. I am completely in agreement with this and I believe it should be the victims of these cowards that get to do it.

Most children physically bully other children because they themselves have been mistreated at home by their parents or something silly. Bullying them doesn't solve anything apart from making the m feel more hurt. Physically bullying only happens in the weaker classes in my town (where brawn is all anyone has) and techniques such as "nerd flushing" don't exist.

The technique such as nerd flushing does exist, and nerd was the one example that came to mind.

Again, that is false. The kind of kids in my school that bullied were the ones with a perfect life with perfect parents and perfect clothes. Those were the kind that bullied.

If people get life in jail for stealing so should bullies.A bully is person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.Bullies steal dignity and self confidence from people.So just like people steal material things and money bullies are responsible for murder and stealing.

Because school don't care that much. They don't do anything to help. All they can do is just put them in ISS or whatever. They say they prevent bullying, but they don't! They only take it more seriously if someone commits suicide because of bullying. Or do they? But yes schools need to take it more seriously.

Side: Yes, here is how

Yes, Bullies should be humiliated in front of the whole class for what they are doing. They will then learn a good lesson what it feels like to get bullied right back.

I'm on this side, not because I think bullies should not be punished and I do. It's because bullying is human nature, in fact it is nature, it can not and will not be stopped.

In all walks of life, for every species there exists a struggle for dominance, as far as humans are concerned, they will get away in a lot of cases with whatever selfish things they are allowed to do, the punishment system does not cleanse a society of it's evils, in fact it can and does make them worse. Petty criminals go to prison and emerge as more intelligent and capable criminals, bullies are the apical alpha dominants and if one is knocked off their pedestal another quickly supplants them.

Physical punishment does not work either, a young bully is in a lot of cases a bully because they themselves are victims of some sort of neglect, even the ones that are spoiled pricks, tend to be in need of attention because of getting none from absent parents. Physical punishment by any authoritative figure teaches that violence is a way to solve problems and only serves to ingrain further in to the Psyche the idea that subjegation is nessecary to maintain that which they need.

Human nature? Killing 6 million Jews was human nature at its darkest. Do we not attempt to regulate evil nature merely because it seems impossible to do so. What if we took out the word "bullies" in the debate heading and replaced it with "rapists". Should rapists be punished? When somebody is bullied it is a psychological form of rape. Bullying is not a cartoon kid being shoved into a locker... It's a daily assassination of one's freedoms and rights. Rights to safety. Rights to not be in anguish every time they enter their place of education, work etc. Bullies should be prosecuted like adults, based on the extent of their abuse. Do the crime, do the time.

Did you read the first part of my post or did you just get your panties in a bunch and decide to invoke Godwin's law.

I merely stated that even though bad behavior such as this should be stopped at the individual level, it will in fact never stop in general.

I don't think so because they usually have some reason for it, be it a problem with themselves or something similar. They need to be spoken to and helped. But if they continue or it's just in their nature then yes. Though I'm not sure how.

A study done in 2007 (I think) showed that around 80% of all bullies have high self-esteem. Meaning, bullies don't bully because they're abused or psychologically damaged, they bully because they're spoiled little pricks who like making people feel bad so that they feel dominate.

If you don't raise children properly, they end up being evil until a certain age. If you're really unlucky, they end up being evil forever, but not usually.

In the past month every time I checked my facebook, all the pages and communities were discussing the same point, bullying. I really read many opinions from different people about this topic but I didn’t think of mine, so I had to check more events of bullying and more opinions until I thought of my own point of view to answer the question ‘should bullies be punished or helped?’ well for me I guess they don’t have to be punished they should be helped because some of them act as if it is something they are used to do like a habit. So we are supposed to help them, I know this for a fact, punishing a bully does not help it however does the opposite and it escalates the matter because nobody likes to be punished, yes clearly what they did was wrong, many schools believe punishing someone by(detention/suspensions in school or out of school)works but that is incorrect because it makes the person much more mad, as now they have a parent or parents who is disappointed or mad at them and now they have more pressure on themselves and they have no other way to take it out but on other kids. Instead of all that I'd rather see a school help them, take them aside and talk to them, ask if there's anything bothering them at home, at school etc… because USUALLY talking to someone about your problems helps and they might stop because they'll feel better. we should try helping the bully instead of creating more problems for him/her.

I honestly believe bullies should not be punished... Someone called you ugly? Someone told you that your hair was ratty? Someone told you that your back pack looks like its from Walmart? Big fuckkinngg deal! You need to grow thicker skin and brush them off. Why let an ignorant person ruin your day / life? "But Jae bullying leads to suicide, what do you have to say about that?" What do I have to say about that? Thats a lazy excuse. Yeah, maybe someone gets so hurt that it leads to suicidal thoughts, but no one told them to kill themselves! And even if someone told you to kill your self, who told you that you're FORCED to listen to them? Like they say, "If someone told you to jump off a cliff, would you do it?" You know damn well you wouldn't. Case closed.
