In fact, lawyers and legal experts say that the DA actually has a case on this one. Don't be a moron - bulling is not a "right" of anyone. It isn't a sign of manhood. Times are different in schools from when you and I were being bullied. Quoting from salon.com:
'Anti-bullying laws are already on the books in 41 states. In Massachusetts -- where last year an 11 year-old boy committed suicide after being picked on at school -- the Legislature has been pushing forward with Commonwealth Bill 483, which would prohibit "harassment, intimidation, bullying, or cyberbullying in any public educational institution," including, significantly, any that might occur "through the use of data, telephone or computer software that is accessed through a computer, computer system, or computer network of any public educational institution."
'The parts of the bill that would likely be most difficult to enforce are also the ones that hold the most promise to effect true change. The bill calls for better procedures for students and staff to report bullying to school administrations and law enforcement, and would require all schools -- including those at the elementary level -- to receive training for handling bullying and to file annual reports on how they're faring. Most intriguing of all, schools would "form bullying prevention task forces, programs, and other initiatives" and compile lists of "bullying and cyberbullying prevention resources, existing prevention programs, best practices, techniques and academic-based research." In other words, training kids to not torture each other would be a part of schoolwork.'
