A Kwinana teen has spo­ken out af­ter be­ing at­tacked on video by a fel­low stu­dent at Gil­more Col­lege — with the per­pe­tra­tor’s week-long sus­pen­sion not enough, ac­cord­ing to the vic­tim's mother. Peo­ple took to the Tele­graph’s Face­book page to ex­press their opin­ions. To­tally un­ac­cept­able — why was the bully not ex­pelled? Bul­lies need to be taught a les­son be­cause they go on to be­come bul­lies in the work­place and de­stroy peo­ple’s lives. Shar­lene Gains­ford Striepe Bul­ly­ing is not OK and I do not agree with sus­pend­ing the stu­dent be­cause that is not teach­ing them. Tina Tow­ers It’s time the parents of th­ese bul­lies were charged with en­cour­ag­ing vi­o­lence and the law should be changed (so) they can be taken to court and the vic­tims (can) get com­pen­sa­tion. Sue Hee­ley What are kids be­ing taught by the adults in their lives th­ese days for this stuff to be go­ing on more and more? Pa­tri­cia Heperi Bul­ly­ing is not iso­lated — it hap­pens at ev­ery school, no mat­ter of money or sta­tus. Bindi Jones I think when th­ese hor­rid sit­u­a­tions oc­cur the bully should be forced to at­tend spe­cial classes that run for two weeks and ex­plic­itly teach them how their be­hav­iour af­fects the lives of oth­ers. Lia Fer­retti See­ber Shame on that other girl, her fam­ily should be very dis­ap­pointed.
