Apparently there are bullies and then there are mates

Today’s front page story in The Bulletin is truly sad. To see a young boy so badly injured on his way home from school is shocking.

The only points I’d make about The Bully’s story are these:
  • “…it's important to make sure that we find out [both] sides of the story and get the whole story," as the regional education director, Mike Ludwig, has said today.
  • How is it that an apparent conflict between two primary school kids is a case of bullying and yet a soldier being bashed so severely by his fellow soldiers that “reconstructive surgery is required” is simply a case of someone being “attacked by his mates”?
