    I've experienced bullying too. My heart sunk reading that this kid was driven to suicide becaue schools, public and private alike, still don't give a rat's ass about bullying. Why am I not surprised that zero tolerance policies don't seem to do shit?

     It makes me so angry that sometimes I wish bullying was punishable with the death penalty. Of course that would be too exteme, I guess, but a lot of these bullies, regardless of their age or background, are sociopathic scum.

     From my own experiences, teachers and admins treat the bully like the misunderstood victim and blame the real victims. I almost think teachers love bullies, but I know there are good teachers who don't tolerate it. We need more teachers, admins, and especially parents and neighborhoods who teach that bullying is wrong. I would say that it's evil. Pure, undiluted evil.

     Sorry if my comment offends anyone, but anytime I read about bullying it enrages me. It's a very emotional subject for me. I've said a few unfair, exteme things only out of anger. I hate bullies with a burning, inhuman passion.
