It would also help if the law was more strict, this would definitely be considered sexual harassment in the U.S. and a couple of other charges would be thrown on on top of that, the parent's of the bullies could possibly get sued, etc etc. I think if the consequences were more severe, people would think twice about doing these things, and parent's would also try harder to educate their kids because naturally no parent would want their kid in jail. I also don't know why other kids in school don't look down upon their classmates for doing such things, if the majority of kids/teens disagreed with this then the other kids wouldn't want to do it. If I lost all my friends at school for doing things like this, or if other kids would constantly pick on me for doing things like this, I wouldn't do them. Kids in schools should unite against bullies like these and give them a little taste of their own medicine to teach these bullies a lesson, not praise them for doing such vile things.

I don't think jail time or community service is going to straighten these bullies out, especially when you hear of such cases in Japan. I think the community should come together as one and really come down on this subject. If people really look down on it, then the kids will understand that it's wrong. They should teach in schools that bullying is wrong, and even have commercials on kid's shows against it like we do here in the U.S. I also blame the parent's, I think it is almost never a kid's fault because they don't know any better, Parent's should take the time to teach their children right from wrong, and things like these are definitely WRONG.

@It"s ME ahh that's sad to hear, it would be nice if they posted a sort of mug shot of the perpetrator. Maybe then people would think twice about doing things like this because of the shame it would bring them. If people knew who the perpetrators were, they would be looked down upon & disliked by everyone else, which is sometimes a worse punishment than going to jail.

I don't live in Japan, so excuse me if this is a stupid question, but why don't they ever put pictures with their news stories? Or a video maybe? Is there some kind of law against it or rights violations maybe?

Some people shouldn't be allowed to reproduce, how can some people be so stupid?

@Tamesu San It would have to be pretty big news for it to reach the states. We don't really get news even from other states unless they are really important, so I doubt something like this would reach the west. Although it shows us the reality of how things really are, which is disturbing.
