And I might add so would you.” This group terrorized everyone at the school, no one was truly safe from the Kobras. In “How We Won The Bean Field War” the bully is described as someone who will beat you up on sight and won’t stop until you cry. Henceforth, these two stories have an alike characterization, but they have a dissimilar settings. Moreover, the settings of the two stories are very contrasting. In “How We Won the Beanfield War” it takes more in a place of a beanfield and mainly the outdoors.
They have sold the idea that everyone should do their share to sell the chocolates, and anyone who doesn’t should be punished. The idea of selling the chocolates has become the trend at the school. It is not Jerry’s course of action, however, and he becomes the outcast and gets punished by his peers in the end.

This shows the power of conformity and the human nature to conform.

When Mr. Matthews was younger he went through the same treatment that Cole is treated with. Beating. This type of abuse taught Mr. Matthews that it is right to beat your child with all you have got and it is right to be angry. Even when you are in a meeting. When Cole and his family were meeting with the whole community Mr. Matthews was angry.

He has experienced discrimination when he was at school by some of the jokes people would make around him —such as he was planning to bomb the school at graduation or that he would shoot up the school if he ever got a bad grade in any of his classes. He dealt with it by just ignoring it and trying not to draw any attention to it because he knew that if he let people know that if bothered him, then they will only continue to say terrible things and make jokes about him — as terrible as it was for him. One of his worst experiences of ethnic discrimination was when he used the restroom when he was in first grade and tall kid (who was probably in fourth or fifth grade) lifted up Abdul by his collar and told him it’s because of you and your kind that my cousin is gone. He spoke with grief and anger as he threatened Abdul by saying “If I ever see you back here, I’ll beat you up!” — Abdul then was let go and ran somewhere safe to cry. Abdul admitted he didn’t know why he was targeted at the time but as he grew up understood that his appearance/ethnicity was likely the only reason for the situation that happened and knowing that has mortified him to this day because he realizes he can fall victim to other people's anger and rage simply because he looks a certain
The angry headmaster, Nolan, convenes a school-wide meeting to uncover the offensive members he believes responsible for undermining his authority and challenging the long-standing school custom of “boys only.” In front of the entire school, Charlie daringly stands up to Nolan and the school policy, mindful of his fate of corporal punishment and possible expulsion, and claims his involvement but protects the rest of the group. Prepared for the consequences of his actions, Charlie stands up to authority,
Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).
This search for justice often emerges in the characters’ actions and reflections. Cassie uses physical violence to punish people who have done her wrong. She beats up TJ after he cheats on a test and passes the blame off onto her. Later in the story, she also beats up Lillian Jean, a white classmate, and forces her to apologize for being demeaning and cruel to Cassie and her siblings. Cassie’s father, Papa, is also in constant search for justice, particularly at the close of the book as he tries to stand up for TJ as the young boy is about to tried for a crime he didn’t commit.
They feel a sense of guilt and shame that holds them back from saying anything and we see this is the Mepham High School Football case. In the Mepham High School Football case there were three upperclassmen who lead the hazing attacks and were charged as minors on counts of aggravated assault and involuntary sexual intercourse. Also, the whole coaching staff was fired for knowing signs and not taking initiative of the behavior that lead to this case. This all started during training camp when one of the upperclassman called one of the freshman a “pussy”, “faggot”, and “cocksucker.” The freshman’s mom told head coach McElroy, so the coach replied “Okay, I’ll handle it.” From that moment on, the upperclassmen stopped calling the freshman “faggot” and started calling him “tattletale boy.” Another day at practice, the upperclassman approached the freshman while he was drinking from a water fountain. “Who do you think you are?” said the upperclassman, according to the freshman
I believe this had something to do with why Len became an active shooter at school. Len also had problems being made fun of at school, and was always being bullied by the people that he called jocks. When Len decided that he was going to go to school and shoot people and commit suicide, I believe he did this because he had a mental disorder, a bad homelife, and he wanted to make a point. The reason why I think that Len was trying to make a point is because he wrote "stop the violence" in his own blood on the
It is an indisputable fact that humans are willing to do anything when their personal safety is threatened, that is to say; they will fight and kill when they cannot assure their own future or survival. In 1954, psychologist Muzafer & Carolin Sherif invited 22 boys to what appeared to be a summer camp, the boys were split and divided into two groups, the Eagles and the Rattlers. Within six days both groups had engaged in malicious pranks the ended in a brawl in which various children were hospitalised. This division between groups is an escalation of force, insults are thrown disguised as jokes, eventually reaching a brawl as seen in the Lord of the Flies. In 1898 various scientists became trapped inside their own ship in Antarctica, during
Shirley Jackson tries to explain to the readers that lying to someone else about something important can often lead into more trouble. In the story, Laurie causes mischief at school, and lies to his parents that a boy named Charles caused all of the trouble that he had actually did. By creating Charles, Laurie had to keep lying to his parents in order for him to stay out of trouble at home. However, Laurie’s parents became suspicious of Charles when they found out that he became a helper at school, and later discovered themselves that Laurie was the source of the trouble within the classroom. This probably made his parents infuriated; more so than if he simply confessed earlier.
I believe in non-violence solutions. I used to be bullied in elementary school because of my race. I hated the bullies and wanted to stop their verbal onslaught. One day, I was through the roof with anger and hatred that I.... exploded. I knocked one bully down, broke another bully 's nose, and rammed the last one into the wall with a chair.
