ABC: Video clips of people getting hurt is NOT FUNNY or Slapstick Comedy

Many, if not most, of the video clip on "America's Funniest Home Videos" are of people being hurt. The viewing audience is expected and encouraged to laugh at the suffering of others. This is what bullying is!  I believe that over the last 10 years or so this show has aired it has unintentionally fed our nation's growing bullying problem. Laughing at another's suffering is not only bullying but erodes compassion for others. This is considered a "family" show. However, the children watching it are in their formative years and are being taught by watching, with their families, that another's pain is funny. I think there is a correlation between this show and the growing bullying problem. Ten years ago bullying was not such an issue.
