    I think that the student who gets hit could have said something hurtful to another student and the “Bully” could hit the student who said something hurtful.

  2. Eli E. Says:

    People who want to hit other kids probably just have problems in there life either at home or have a bigger brother or sister that beats up on them and the kid learns from them and starts hurting other kids.

  3. levi w Says:

    what i think makes students so angry is waking up early in the morning. no i have never wanted to hit sombody.

  4. michael s. Says:

    i think everyone that bullies should treat othershow they want to be treated so if they bully then they should get bullied

  5. lupita c Says:

    i think other kids would want to hit another kid because thay are mad at the person or they are just angry and they want to take there anger out and by hiting another person makes them feel better

  6. Auttumn M. Says:

    Mabe the people that want to hurt other people don’t feel good about thierselfs so they hurt other people for their problems.

  7. LAUREN Says:

    maybe people shouldnt talk so much crap about other people n keep their mouth shut! Then it probably wouldnt occur!

  8. marissa m Says:

    vience occurs beacuse people open there mouth and talk crap and if they didnt open there mouth there would be less vience

  9. isaias a Says:

    It really has to do with respect. People want to get ahead in life and they need respect thats whats causing the violence: the disrespect.

  10. juan c Says:

    i think that some people like to bulli and that is because their family dosent love them so they take their anger out on other people

  11. demetrius d Says:

    I think there like that because it can be family issues. It can also be issues with like gilrfriends/boyfriends (if it’s a girl)

  12. brenda t. Says:

    What i think makes them angry is all the work they have or the teachers giving the student a bad time in class. And they hit another kid to get there anger out.

  13. hector v Says:

    some times its problems at home and they need to get let go thoose emotions and they do it with violence

  14. David S. Says:

    some times the bullys have problems at home and they bring them to school.i have never been bullyed or never bullied someone so i am happy.

  15. Tevin Says:

    i have wanted to hit someone only when they make fun of my family and me. also i believe its when people are having trouble with school.

  16. kyle nokes Says:

    people always try to act cool by harrasing or bullying other people

  17. Kayla Rb's Says:

    The parents give u promission to fight back if someone is trying or is beating on you.I think this will increase chances. The grils and boys that do get beat at home like to take it out on other kids just cause its someone to take your anger out on.

  18. David G.O. Says:

    I THINK THAT THE THING THAT MAKES STUDENTS GET SO MAD AT JOKES PEOPLE MAKE AT THEM. I HAVE WANTED TO HIT SOMEONE SO BAD THAT I ACTUALY DID. I WANTED TO BECAUSE HE HIT ME FIRST AND I’M NOT THE KIND OF GUY THAT LET’S SOMEONE HIT ME WITHOUT FIGHTING FOR MY SAFETY. I THINK MORE PEOPLE SHOULD TALK ABOUT THIS SUBJECT MORE OFTEN BECAUSE THEN SOME STUDENTS CAN ABUSE IT AND GO AND KEEP ON FIGHTING AND THEN THEY WILL BE THE ONES SUFFERING INSTED OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE ABUSED. SOME TIMES I THINK THAT THEY SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO PEOPLE.

  19. micheal simp Says:

    ive been bulled many times but i have learned to deal with it . i think that the anger of some students is because they were bulled when they were little so the anger had built up and so they bulley other students. some of these students just think its funny and that it feels good to beat people up. some of the other kids are abused at home so they take their anger out on school. i have bulled a little but i was haveing a bad day i didnet mean to. all i did was call a few people names.

  20. ruth u. Says:

    yes i have wanted to hit someone in school.! many many times

  21. Mary Says:

    i have been wanting to heat someone so bad but instead i just go to anger classes instead of aking it out on other people

  22. Alex I P Says:

    Well I thought the short story was good; mI really hope who ever reads, get’s in there head, and stick there.

  23. Brooke M. Says:

    I think people in the environment should treat other people the way they would like to be treated.

  24. Daniela O Says:

    i think what makes people hurt other people in school is that they have problems in their personal life such as parents getting divorced or abuse in their house. I have never want to hit someone i mean i wanted to move schools but i never tried or wanted to hurt anyone.

  25. jason ortiz Says:

    i have wanted to hit some one in scholl cause they got me mad for starting rumorz about me!!!!!

  26. Joann Q Says:

    I think that violence in school shouldn’t happen because school is a place where they should feel comfortable learning. i hope nobody gets hurt or punched in my school.

  27. Edith R. Says:

    in my opinion, i really dont know why students become so overwhelmed by anger and decide to use violence.i guess those are the people that just have no self control.therefore, when i feel anger towards someone i control myself. i really think people should learn how to maintain there patience and learn to be reasonable and not use violence.

  28. dustin Says:

    it was way too long

  29. Niyat O. Says:

    I think people hit others because of some anger that bubbles up inside of them and if you say one thing related to it they will get mad. And yes I have wanted to hit someone because they were being mean .

  34. Tegra M. Says:

    I think people hit other people because they either want to or the person they hit did something to the person who hit them.

  35. Giovanni C Says:

    I think violence happens because the bullys get mad at things that happen a home or somewhere else and cause they wanna take out their anger. It also happens cause bullys might have been bullied too.

  36. Mercedes R. Says:

    vilence is bad because you can really hurt someone really bad and other people and your self!! so dont do it

  37. Donavan M. Says:

    I think violence is caused by jelousy and racisim the most. Like my friend got hurt because some one “stole” his girl friend and ya…..

  47. Anonymous Says:

    I don’t get it. Why would kids become bullies. What’s their drive? They need a reason. It’s nonsense.

  48. dylan h. Says:

    becuse people are mean like that
    and they are very rude and they should be ruined

  49. Gabriel Madera Says:

    It occurs when bullies think they are better than someone

  50. DJ Says:

    I think they dont like how people are or how much attention they get so bullies get super jelous and fight

  51. All man Tawaski Says:

    It’s natural to have encounter with each other. In some cultures,p it’s a way of life but the extremity is frowned at naturally. The encounter brings the person in you and prepares you for the larger society. It’s just like allowing your child to go for expediction or better off going for adventure! The teachers or gudians at childrens facilities have been trained to take of such and I want to belief that perfection in any task is very hard to achieve thus the room for such. Sometimes, kids are over pampered unrealistically that his home will in ever remoain his enclave forever. Many at times, it’s correctional in a way as most parents are weak or not naturally endowed to discipline their kids at home and they will go out to misbehave before others. As I have earlier said, the extremity of childrens unfriendly encounter should be on the watch out and by this I mean the lads that have gotten out of hands with intentions to kill or administer gracious bodily harm on others. Pull them off the system when they refuse to embrace good counselling!

  52. saran Says:

    hi, jealous is the first problem to make the harrsement,bullies and otherthings.

  53. Anonymous Says:

    I think that many students are angry, starting from home. Lack of parenting and not getting enough attention or especailly not having enough discipline. Then it can lead to school by them being bully by other students. Then they will get totally frustrated.
