Angry I feel really unsafe... - September 22nd 2009, 11:47 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of peer pressure or bullying, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Over the weekend a kid from my school basically posted a list of fellow students who he wanted to "beat to a bloody pulp", which included me and a bunch of my friends, on his facebook page. The school has taken care of him (suspension, etc), but I'm still feeling really weird about it.
I have pretty bad anxiety and all the worst case scenarios keep running through my mind. I can't concentrate on anything for very long and haven't done much work in school for the past two days.

ALSO,
completely unrelated, but in addition...
My Community Through Media class was interviewing some kids at the local community college and I guess this kid missunderstood something that one of my friends said, so he started hitting him and trying to beat him up, I guess. Luckily there was a teacher nearby who pulled the kid off.

It just makes me think.
Like, can these kids just get away with things like this?
I mean, the kid at my school was pretty much thretening to KILL people, and he only got suspended. And the kid at the college was hitting my friend and didn't get in any trouble at all. Like, what?! Really?!

Hello there

I'm sorry that you've had this experience. It can't be nice to be that worried, and especially over something like facebook, where you are never sure what's going on! I'm gald he was dealt with, and although it doesn't feel liek much, a suspension is now on his record; if he does something like this again, your school know to look out for him!

I think, that different experience can relate to different people. Teachers are only human; they makes mistakes just like you and me. It doesn't make it right, and I know it often feels like nothing is getting done.
If you want to, it can class as assault and dealt with by the police, so bear that in mind if it happens again. Teachers aren't the only people who can deal effectively with bullying; maybe a school nurse, an adult you trust, or again the police if you feel it's getting out of hand?

Again, it must be so frustrating at the moment! But try and calm down, take some deep breathes, and get back to us if you need any more advice love. PM me any time you want to tallk about it, to. I'm hear to listen :]

Take care x
