Nowadays, when people hear about bully cases they will fully blame it on the bullies but do they know what is actually happening especially from the bullies? We agree that the bullies should get the same attention as the victim in term of justice, safety and psychological treatment.
MAIN POINT 1: JUSTICE
According to Lynn Zammit (2012), the Ministry of Educations should make the schools act for the bullies who are still students. This way they can investigate whether the bullies is convicted or not. By having this act, they can defend themselves because they also have the rights to defend themselves as well as the victims.
According to Lynn Zammit (2012), by being fair can soften the bullies’ heart to be nice and easier for them to listen advices. If they were given punishment without fairness, the feeling of grudge and revenge will exist in them.
MAIN POINT 2: SAFETY
Human rights are to get protected regardless of whether he is a criminal or criminal victim. According to Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 3, "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person". We all have the right to live in freedom and safety. No one should be arbitrarily killed, or deprived of their liberty without good reason. For example in 2017 reported by Bernama, the mother of a bullying victim at an MRSM school has agreed to terminate the ten bully convicted of her child's bully. This has endangered the safety and future of bully. People will beat this bully and potentially be harmed by the public for their actions.
In addition, the media should protect personal information about the bully from society. This affects their name and safety. According to Lord Justice Leveson, UK (2017), the names or identifying details of those who are arrested or suspected of a crime should not be released to the press nor the public. As example, has been stated at an article from The Korean Herald webpage, South Korean law and media convention in many cases protect the identities of criminal suspects. In accordance with the criminal code and Korean National Police Agency guidelines, it is typical for a suspect’s face to be covered and for only their surname to be used when they appear in the media. This is to ensure the safety of bullets is guaranteed any possibility.
MAIN POINT 3: PSYCHOLOGICAL TREATMENT
Frequent therapy bullies according to the Lohmann (2013) One of the most effective therapies in addressing the emotional distress caused by bullying is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Bullying has been correlated with anxiety, depression, poor self-image, substance abuse and suicide. CBT is the most widely acclaimed, trusted and research-supported treatment method for these issues. CBT teaches individuals to better understand their thoughts and feelings in relation to the situation.
When bullies and victims go to see Psychiatrist expert. They will help the bullies and victims to manage complex emotions of anger, guilt, anxiety, sadness, or shame and mend deep wellsprings of psychological hurt stated by Courtny 2018. Besides, the psychiatrist know the best way to treat them and can break the the victimization cycle of learned helplessness.
Ministry of education need to give free psychotherapy to the bullies to help them to fix their attitude and make them reflex on what they do toward the victims. For example, according Rebecca 2017, the deputy education ministry Datuk P Kamalanathan colloborate with other agencies through “pembibimbing rakan sebaya “ programme to combat bullying through the visionary programmes (program remaja berwawasan)
In conclusion, the bullies should get the same attention as the victim in term of justice, safety and psychological treatment. People should understand the bullies same like the victims.
