Punisher, i think that violance is not the answer.
Sure, you can sneak to his home and cut him like butter in his sleep, or even just beat him up with a baseball bate at school yard.

If you are strong, so mostly the bully wont pick up with you. And if you are not, well, it wont end up good.

And about amanda. A sad story indeed. People keep saying "It happened because of..." and "She act in a not so smart way". As i see it, it was a signle trip that ruind her life. So dont tell yourself "This could never happen to me/someone i know/care". Remmember, The Internet never forget. Its a cruel and deep place, who keep everything left inside. Think befor you act peoples. There are wolves out there.

We have a saying
"The power in your words comes from the stick in your hands."
I found it true.

That doesn't work in the West. If you fight back brutally, the bully gets seen as the victim.

Well, if he breaks you tooth, you break his tooth.
Don't go over the edge.
and if no violent resistance is allowed in the west, then its a bad place to live.

You know it better than me, idle threats don't cut it.
and yes the violence is the last course of action one should take.
You guys here think that I am some kind of psycho who just needs an excuse to pounce on people.
Guess what? I am not so, violence is the last course of action I take and only there where I know I can get away with it.
I'll give you an example.
A guy had some beef with me, he tampered with my car brakes(that was a "Prank" in his mind).
I could not prove it in any way, obviously I could not have sat their and let him try some thing else.
So, a common friend of ours held a meeting at a secluded place and I beaten some sense into him, nothing serious just some bruises and stuff.

Don't make absolute statements. While violence can often be avoided, there are times when it can't, and times when it is the most effective and direct.

Punisher, there's obviously a difference in terms of extremity. Tampering with brakes sounds like something you think "meh" to "this could be bad." That's borderline attempted murder or assault.

Bullying here is most often name calling, light harassment, exclusion from groups and petty theft. Violence would just escalate things needlessly when other means can stop it.

I do have to give you one point though Punisher, being a baby about it and appearing weak doesn't help.

I think you are calling me wrong here.
That little brake tampering got me in a crash.

No, I'm not calling you wrong. I'm saying you don't view that as something...too far out of the norm.

To elaborate, you've made it clear in this thread that things like what I mentioned (name calling, light harassment, exclusion from groups and petty theft) shouldn't even be considered bullying. There's a vast difference in perspectives, whether that's cultural or personal experience is another subject.

Well brake tampering was something out of the norm, I don't know from where this Idea from a bond movie perhaps?

If freind is name calling you that's not bullying but some one is calling you names for no reason just piss you off, that is bullying but not the one that should be met with violence.
Light harrasement, do the same to them.
Exclusion from group, they don't want you then why you want them?
Petty theft, now that's a crime but why bother over something petty?
