Bullying and Depression?

Yeah, I had the same experience when I was still a kid in high school. I tried fighting them off but they kept beating me down. I used to get at least 2 bruises every day and it was damn depressing to deal with.
They should make a law which would have bullies in jail. If they are kids, they should be kept in juveniles cell. This is will definitely halt bullying.
From my experience, I know that anyone whom have been bullied for a very long time in his or her life will always be suffering from depression because it is never easy dealing with bullies in someone's life.
