With all the high profile cases of kids committing suicide and bullies getting arrested for it, I'm a little conflicted on this. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I was THE target of bullying. Want to raise your social status? Just pick on me. I was both physically and emotionally bullied to a point where I contemplated suicide.
That said, most of me keeps screaming that arresting and charging bullies of crime is wrong. Haven't we agreed that the government shouldn't get into our personal lives and that we don't need them to babysit us?
Today, we arrest bullies. What's to stop them from banning anything and everything that offends people? Try to guess what book I'm referring to.
My mind is open. Those who think cyber bullies and bullies in general should be arrested and dealt with, help me understand why this isn't going to far?
