To be honest, I think the best way to tackle the solution is to make bullying illegal. Why not? Incorporate it into the legal system and make it a criminal offense. I don't see the problem in that.
So many people each year take their lives due to bullying. I even get videos from Facebook on news about how this kid just took his life. Furthermore, according to statistics roughly 60,000 in the US are afraid of going to school due to bullying. Honestly, a person has absolutely no right to commit that sort of stupidity and have it spread throughout their social circle. I strongly believe as of right now that the VICTIMS are usually the ones that suffer due to a horrible enforcement by the law of such act.
I don't want to see it from "another perspective" because all these classic bully excuses eg:
1. Parents abusing the kids at home. (This is no way to take out your anger on other kids. It's not their fault no one loves you. <-- Just kidding. If your parents are that abusive to the point where you don't have the basic necessities required to form a family or you're mentally suffering, then you have a right to report it. There's a Youth Protection Act that outlines such things. )
So many people suffer and decide to take their lives each year. It's unarguably clear that bullies are a detriment to society. If they have problems themselves, then they can go seek out help. Get their rehabilitation away from the stakeholders that are in danger of being treated in such a way that it would amount to bullying.
I refuse to believe that there is a legitimate reason as to why certain buffoons bully often. Just make the darn act illegal. Problem solved.
In the world of bullying, there's no such thing as "the other side".
