Are bullying problems out of control?
One thing that must be considered as to why bullying seems to be on the rise is the amount of violance on video games. I don't give a rats ass what some pyschologist says. The amount of violance and total lack of compassion or kindness in the current rash of video games do have a direct influence on the current generatio of kids.
Just the same there have been more than one hot rod kid who thinks that since he can beat everyone on the video game race track can take a car or motorcycle into the real world and be in total control. In my area there have been at least 3 young men in the past 2 years that have been killed becuse of that very reason.
Then of course there is the total lack or fear of those who should enforce the laws who don't against bullies.
