all these new rules they have in school are bs. the bottom line is the same now as it was when i was a kid. if they "shove" you....swing back as hard and as often as you can. bullies see "nice people" as weak.
Indeed, however i do believe that if a complaint is made that is how police see it however due to the fact that most bullies are underage nothing comes of it, which is a shame, it definately needs to be taken more seriously.
