  • Dec 11 2012: No, never.
    Find a real way to deal with bullying, the bullies and their parents, if that is the young age at which it starts.
    I'm totally against this not so subtle form of brainwashing children into an unknowing acceptance of a Big Brother Matrix where Big Brother is the bully and wants you and me to allow them their form of bullying.

    Get used to it kids. This what Fascism looks like and how it feels in the beginning.
    We tell you and your folks we are the good guys and we are anything but.

    They want to suspend gravity because one child falls off a roof and then risk everyone else falling off the planet.
    In other words, let's protect one by taking away everyone's right to privacy and liberty.

    I agree that there is basically no "right to" on public transportation but there is an invisible line citizens are crossing or are asked to cross when they begin easily believing, thinking and speaking along the lines such as i.e. you don't have a right to.....

    Better make them rights, and better keep them, and if they are gone, better get them back.

    I wouldn't even trust someone to work as an "adult, supervisory enforcer" on buses, whose sole job is to spot and stop bullying. They most certainly would abuse that power and the growth of children is first and foremost with the parents or significant others and not some adult who oversteps their bounds.


    Lejan asked:
    "Do we really need real-time video evidence to deal with this sort of problem? Has it come that far?"

    No it hasn't and one danger is in thinking that way. Not saying you are Lejan but just using your comment.
    Let's look for real solutions, not lazy ideas particularly those that may sound good but are inherently bad if not downright evil, for the repercussions, not that they have or will create, but for the repercussions others will see and use for, and to their advantage to further corral the citizens, who have been called for a long time by rulers "the beast".

    The real Beast would like cameras
