The Montreal based punk-pop group, Simple Plan, best known for their mega-hit, "I'm Just a Kid," had a lot to say on the topic. Lead guitarist, Jeff Stinco, remembers when he was bullied, "To get home from school I had to go through a rough neighbourhood and sometimes I got pushed or made fun of because I was such a small guy." Stinco eventually realized that the bullies were probably just frustrated with their own lives.

"I don't think people should be put in jail for bullying. They should be getting some kind of assistance, some psychological help," and continues to say, "The bully who caused [Dawn-Marie Wesley] to hang herself probably never thought things would go that far."

At least try this approach with a small group of kids and compare it to the already failing system of punishment for healing. If we could understand and diagnose bully then we would do better at solving the fundemental problems we are having in schools.

Jeff was smart enough to know that the bullying wasnt his fault so he didnt take it as hard as others do. I do think we need to evaluate our current process dealing with bullies
