    Some individuals feel that they shouldn 't be expelled out of sympathy for the bullies. I concede that bullies have feelings too and may have strong feelings against getting expelled ; however, they should have thought about the consequences and also about how they were making their victim feel.In many cases of bullying, the victims will sometimes experience low self-esteem, lack of assertiveness, difficulty controlling anger, and/ or isolation because of being hurt by a bully who clearly doesn 't care to consider others ' feelings. This is reason enough to show that in situations like this, the victim 's feelings should be considered more than the bully 's because the bully chose to intentionally hurt feelings and therefore should be punished.
