A Solution to Cyber Bullying [POLL]

While New Jersey tries to find ways to combat bullying with time consuming anti-bullying laws, Ohio is handling the matter a little bit differently.

Edmond Aviv has been ordered by a judge to sit on a street corner holding a sign that reads:

“I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in.”

This punishment comes after he harassed a neighbor and her disabled children for the past 15 years. I’m thinking we should apply that system of punishment here in New Jersey. A great punishment for cyber bullies, would be for the bully to post a photo of themselves holding an ‘I am a bully’ sign on the school’s Facebook page.

You may remember the story of Jose Legares who made his son stand on a street corner wearing a sign that said “I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies” Then later after parents criticized him, he wore his own sign saying “I am not sorry.”

The best way to make a child understand the hurt and humiliation that bullying victims go through, is for them to experience it firsthand in a safe and secure way. It would definitely be something they would remember for the rest of their lives.

How do you feel about this idea? Would you have a problem if your child was forced to wear a sign that said “I am a Bully?”
