Definition: SCHOOL BULLY

    Refusal (not inability) to think rationally about themselves and others;   Small scale Terrorist, with behavior mostly taking place during school time;   Justifies terrorist activities towards his/her targets or victims with self psychological excuses ("I want to appear tough and in control"); 


    Enjoys enforcing power on others and causing extreme fear; 


    Over-bearing person who tyrannizes the non-violent and physically less strong; 


    To rule by intimidation, terror; 


    Threatens or acts violence on others; 


    Calls an assault a "fight," "disagreement" or "justice."

(The only differences between a terrorist and a bully, is in the organized planning or cause of the activity, and the scale of terror.  A bullied child will believe that there is no difference between a terrorist and a bully given the above definitions.)
"...imagine these things happening in our workplace. Imagine being harassed and humiliated day in and day out. Imagine being shoved in the hallways or knocked in the head--never knowing when the perpetrator will strike again. Imagine sitting quietly, eating your lunch, and being knocked from your chair. Just imagine that as your head hits the floor, you go in and out of consciousness, as you feel blow after blow, to your head and face. Imagine being told that if you ever defend yourself--you will be fired--but your attackers are allowed back the next day or the next week--to do it all over again.
"Hard to imagine, isn't it? How absurd to think that any business in the United States would operate in that fashion and stay in business. Yet, in the business of public education, we are telling our children to expect it and accept it. The reality is that others took Brandon's life long before he ended his pain. Brandon was courageous. He fought a valiant battle, enduring all these things--until he lost all hope. Just imagine."

It is believed that depression causes most teenage suicides, but this creates a new question - what causes the depression?  A person just doesn't wake up one morning with depression.


Psychologists believe that some people have a genetic tendency towards depression, some develop depression because of environmental triggers, and some people can have both genetic and environmental triggers,  (See "Teen Depression and it's Causes").   Brandon, (and Jared), developed depression from bullying at school as well as an assault by a bully/bullies in school.  The new term being used to describe this type of teen Suicide is, "bullycide," a suicide caused from the effects of bullying.
