WOW my son's school doesn't mess around with bullies!

I just found out that at my son's school they call the cops if they find out any of the older kids at the school are bullying! I want to say they're doing it with kids in 5th grade or higher. Talk about a zero tolerance policy...

Hmmm. I am always glad to hear a school cracking down on bullying but it seems to me that the police have real crimes to deal with and not 10 year olds...

I agree that the police need to be called in certain situations, but this seems a bit extreme.

I taught at a school where we had a student or two who were so aggressive the police had to be called on occasion. This was an elementary school. We had the behavior disorder program in our school plus a few kids who should have been in it but were in regular classrooms. That is not bullying, but assault or somesuch that they get called for. The police won't respond for regular bullying. These kids were called for property destruction, assault, etc.

In a thread last week one poster here said she didn't want to call the police on a 9 y/o who was chasing another child around with a knife. If it's even possible for me to be more likely to call the cops on a kid than an adult, I would - but it wouldn't really be possible - either way it would be 911 immediately.

But I agree with you that I'd much rather they rough up the bullying 10 year-old kid than wait until he's 19 and then start. At 10 they have the chance to remove him from the home and teach him something, at 19 we're just destined to pay for his lifestyle for the rest of our lives.

I'm not sure how it works in the States but schools here often have a police officer assigned who is also a community liaison and regularly visits the school. Also, bullies can commit assault, theft and any number of petty crimes that adults report a file charges for. I don't see it being any different.

Agreed, nip it in the bud and stop them before they get any worse.
