Response to Diclotican (Reply #8)

12. As somebody who experienced bullying and it's effects...

...the only question I would have with criminalizing bullying across-the-board is that much of it becomes less physical, and much more psychological, as kids get older (at least that was my experience.).
The fists and physical assaults are often replaced with ostracizing, the overt namecalling and harassment can often give way to more subtle forms of psychological game playing, as kids get more sophisticated socially.

Proving overt bullying to a jury, to me, is less problematic than the more covert types (which can be just as much, if not more, injurious.)
