This girl is now dead.Aimee Wellock, 15, was strolling with three friends in a wooded beauty spot when they were targeted by a group of four older teenagers who began to intimidate them.
I read this in the paper while at work today, infuriated me.
How many times does this have to happen?
When will bullies get it through their thick skulls that they destroy lives?
Every town/city/school has bullies, some stuff is easy to cope with while other stuff leads to suicide or the above results.
Why? why do young people have to die before a bully will stop?
I wont stand for it and have often stepped in to stop someone being picked on by a group. The old saying is true tho that bullies are only tough when in groups. When alone 99% of them are cowardly chicken shit dorks.
My advice to anyone being bullied, whether by a group or an individual, is to simply stand upto them, just once, thats all it needs. Punch on the nose or kick to privates.
Many of you will dissagree with me there and say violence breeds violence, yes thats possible, but in most cases the bully will back off.
I personally think the penalty for bullying should be incredibly severe, I'm not sure what tho, for adults it should be a minimum of 3 years (just for bullying, plus assalt charges if need be) for under 16's I'm not sure because they pretty much get away with what they want.
Stocks. Middle of town, specially designed so as not to cause injury to back, neck arms or legs. But to humiliate, humiliation is very powerful.
Of course this will never happen.
But something needs to be done more than what is being done.
Then maybe future Aimee Wellock's could lead a normal long life, not be murdered at the start of theirs.
