Bullying and Repercussions

Posted: April 04, 2011

I think that just about everyone in the world has seen the video below, but I just wanted to comment on it. There are so many things wrong with this chain of events, that it makes me wonder what kind of world we are leaving to our children, and more importantly what can be done differently.

First of all I feel badly for the large overweight kid that was being bullied. If you read the back-story on this event, you will find that this child is often bullied because of his weight. This is a sad statement for two reasons. The first is that we are raising kids that will bully someone who is overweight. The second reason is that if this child doesn’t change his eating and exercise habits, he will not only be facing bullies, but also a series of long term health problems as well. Obesity is a growing problem in the world, and we need to do a better job of training our kids in this regard.

Another thing that bothers me is the little bully’s character. What made him think that this behavior was acceptable, and how many other people has he picked on. More importantly how will this video affect him in the future. Will he always be known as the kid who got beaten up on youtube. I wonder what long term psychological effects he will suffer in the future.

The Good:

1. Erik Paulson is a coach on the show. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a big fan of Erik Paulson. In my opinion, he is the best MMA coach around. He is extremely creative, and technically he is awesome. I look forward to hearing what he has to say on the show.

The Bad:

Really good, or really cheesy. I’m not sure that there is any middle ground on this movie. Let me know if you think this film will be any good. Place your comments below.

I thought that this was a pretty cool concept. It’s amazing what they can accomplish with CG effects. Special thanks to Dane for bringing this to my attention.
