Bully Incident#24: Me As The Bully (1979)

Bully Incident#24: Me As The Bully (1979) | Denny's Looking into bullying |
Denny Nguyen's insight:

Do you think some of the boys who were involved regretted doing this? Do you think the only reason he bullied was because he was bullied at his other school? What would you have done after they laughed at him for crying?

Why do you think they chose to bully David?

Yes, I think all the boys regretted it because they all seemed like they were sorry when they realized how much they hurt him. I think him being bullied at his other school is part of the reason. I probably would've told them that they shouldn't laugh at other people's pain. He was probably a little bit different, like too tall, too skinny, too shy, or something.

Yea I would've had the same answer except I don't think all of them regretted it because most of them laughed at him. Yea and it's funny because if he was in a different school and wasn't shy he would probably be the one feared since he's bigger than most of them.

An online fund-raising drive for a 68-year-old Rochester woman who was brutally taunted by a group of 12- and 13-year-old boys has proved hugely successful.

In my opinion, these boys did this because they thought that they would become popular, and they would gain attention. i think that the seventh grade boys posted this to be funny. This action was a mistake! If they thought that there was any humor in this, they were just plain desprite for attention. There is nothing funny about this. The boys probably didn't have an inspiration to this horrible act. My response to this is NOT laughter. My response is anger and sadness.

I believe that these boys bullied this woman to amuse their peers and gain popularity among their friends. I think they probably uploaded the video to YouTube for the same reason. They thought they would be famous for bullying this woman, and they are, but not in a good way. These kids should be ashamed for what they did. This is just plain cruel.

     I think the boys were insecure and wanted to become popular. They probably were insecure about their weight, the amount they sweat, and their hearing. They also thought that doing this would make them popular and cool. 


     They posted the video on youtube because the boys probably thought that doing this would make them cool and popular. If they spread the word about it the boys thought that it would make them more popular.


     The boys'motivation was to feel better about themselves and to gain attention by becoming popular.


     This article horrified and sickened me while it brightened my day at the end. it is just shocking that anybody would do such a crime, especially to a grammother. The way Max Sidorov responded is just amazing. he raised massive amounts of money for Mrs. Klein. Finnaly, raising money for Max Sidorov is a great idea. Giving kindness back to the giver is the best way to respond to anything like this.
