Why do some people find happiness in hurting other people? Why are there bullies? Would there still be bullies if no one would let themselves be bullied? I think bullies are just people who can't express themselves well, so they tend to come off as forceful people... And some bullied people tend to become bullies at some part of their life to avenge their past experiences ...What do you think?

It's because they want to show their power to others, power that bolsters their egos. Some bully others to get what they want when diplomacy fails, and these were exemplified by the maguindanao massacre.Power which means, quote" the absence of conscience" described by somebody I read a long time ago.

Yes they think they are more superior to others.I guess most bulliers came from prominent families.Mostly also their family have friends who may be powerful or occupy government position.

People who bully other people are just plain bad. They may have experienced being bullied sometime and yes they want to revenge. And it's a sign of immaturity and a feeling of being inferior reall when they show they are superior to others. Most bullies are only bullying those who are smaller than them and they don't bully those who are most likely bigger than them physically. And I think they have traumatized or abused physically by someone and to hide it they bully another person.

I was in grade school when I was bullied so many times that I hated to go to school all the time, these people are really problems for school children even my kid now has a problem with bullies in his school I told my son to tell his teacher about it.It will not be gone but school official says that they can tell teacher but kids are really afraid to tell. One time where I lived now a kid just kill himself because of this I really pity this kid. School cannot implement that NO BULLY at school program they still alive so my messages to all been bullied be brave and stay away from them.

I guess bullying cannot be prevented easily especially in schools.Because the one bullied sometimes are afraid to report the person to the proper authorities...Also the one doing this sometimes find happiness when they harass other people...thanks for your comment cadguy08
