Kicks and kicking

True Detective Season 2 is back.
In related spoiler alert, there is a scene in the first episode where a father—fed up of seeing his chubby son being bullied in school—takes matters into his own hands—knuckles, to be precise—and beats the crap out of the bully's father. Of course, he has nothing against the dad but he's trying to make a point to the boy who thinks it's cool to pick up on his son who can't/won't fight back. 
Guess what? It isn't. 
Bullying is a serious issue and one should be online to understand how evil people can get. You'll come across the snarkiest of comments from people who are wuss in the real world. People who can't string together three thoughts otherwise. People who don't amount to anything in particular. Just blank words. It's almost funny—but not. It goes without saying that Internet is for everyone and everybody's within their perimeters to write/post whatever they want. That was the whole idea. The problem, sadly, is those who don't respect others' space of expression are growing. Also, is it REALLY alright to harass someone for kicks? I think it's perfectly alright as long as your loved ones get a chance to beat the crap out of someone dear to these bullies. You know, just to make a point.
