When I was in grade school, there was a kid who was bullied mercilessly by three sociopathic creeps. It went on from 3rd through 6th or 7th grade. They picked on him simply because he was a bit of a nerd, and they were bigger and stronger. They were also stupid and violent.

In 9th grade, the nerdy kid began taking Tae Kwon Do and Kempo karate. This was in the 1970s. He continued till he earned a black belt, and then the higher degrees that come with it. At a twenty year grade school reunion, to the absolute astonishment of many attendees, he completely beat the living crap out of 2 of the bullies in attendence, vowing to do the same to the 3rd one "if he ever sees his ugly face again". Neither of the 2 bullies who got their payback called the cops to report the assaults, nor did either attempt to sue him.

We're talking twenty years after the bullying!

Payback is a bee-yatch.

I've had the knife pulled on me, I've been chased around by a gang of Somalian immigrants, been -that- fat kid. Why the hell am I the only one who thinks this is wrong?!

Probably because you're so obviously wrong.

Casey did what needed to be done to END the confrontation.

do we know where the school is? I'd love to call and make a complaint.
the big kid in no way shape or form.
All he did up in till he was physically assaulted was TALK.
such bull. after the kid threw numerous punches at him all he did was defend himself and end the situation.

bravo chubby bravo

Just the continued war on masculinity, is all this is. The Socialist do no want you to stand up and be heard, it scares the hell out of them.
As a child I had (have) a stuttering problem, this led to many taunts. Thank god I was raised by a man from the John Wayne generation. A few dust ups and that was the end of it till I changed schools years later. Repeat and the same results.
Here's a quote from Stormship Troopers: " Violence is the ultimate authority, from which, all authority is derived".

While I normally do not condone violence, I can see why it was needed in this case. The bully could only understand one language and that is violence. No one was there to help the kid, the supervisors and school staff, so what else could he do?

However, the body slam went too far. Simply picking up the twerp and throwing him at one of his friends would have been enough. I am not saying the bullied kid was wrong to do the body slam but its too easy to get seriously injured. What if he broke the kid's neck?

The only bad thing with violence is that it is too easy to take it too far.

There are a lot of sad stories about your personal struggles with bullies and I feel for you guys I really do, but you guys might want to let that stuff go and make peace with your past enemies. To grow, you know? That's just my humble suggestion.

When can violence be condoned? When lives are on the line. Was Casey's, ever? No.

Please tell us then what was Casey then supposed to do ? Talk his way out of it ? I don't believe that you were ever in similer situation before.

Here some of my own experiences :
I used to be nerdy type, smaller than most children in my grade. My bullies were a group of 7 all larger and stronger than me. Each morning i would dread going to school, would feel faint by breakfast table knowing that the minute I enter the school grounds i'll encounter them waiting for me to hand out my tuck money. If i had none i would be kicked to the ground and searched and whatever of value would be confiscated. During class i was called names and laughed at by everyone because no-one dared not to laugh. If i said anything like "stop it" they would change my words and shout something like "hey he called us stupid !" would then be dragged to the toiletts, thrown onto the sink dragged along the taps so they would connect sharply with my upper body, mostly my head then bogg-washed. Recess was a matter of hiding away in the hope that i wouldn't be found. After school i would endure another beating if i wasn't quick enough or if if the great classroom window of freedom was on an upper level. After enduring this maltreatment for several years i hated myself because i felt so helpless and weak.
My bullies only stopped when i wasn't around anymore because i left for another school. I pitied my successor.

Right now i wouldn't know what i'll do if i would see them again I can assure you it definitely won't be a pretty sight. Thank the Gods for them that they live 10000km away.

As for Casy : a hat tip to him for standing up himself.

Ya know.. I have been in the same place as Casey.. As mention by many others here (To make a Choice)..
I wish not to suggest that taking a position to do harm to whom that is giving it to me, If you happen to slap my face one time.... I will turn the other Cheek and allow it happen one more time... If so... now its gets ugly!
You Had your chance to choose correctly... not looking good for you otherwise!

Pain goes deep!

The little A$$, was lucky to limp away...
It was in my time when these issues came up, (Open up a Can of Regret) that it came to be the same results for them.. I never asked for it but somehow you did
Keep in mind...
Today..some are not so lucky, some are shot!
I trust the Bonehead will live a better life!

Sometimes one chance is good enough..

They live to remember..

Be Wise.. Be Well..

I didn't read all the pages but the bully's mother did an interview and said he deserved what he got.

This is what happens when people are constantly bullied until they break.
To the people who reacted to Casey slamming the kid on the ground by saying " What if
he had been seriously hurt?"

Well, what if the kid being bullied had finally had enough and the end result was he
ended his life when he couldn't take it anymore? That end result is final and is devastating. Does anyone think about that when they claim Casey was wrong?

So, we have one kid who got his knee hurt and hopefully learned a valuable life lesson, and another kid who finally made a stand against bullying and sent out the message of " No More Bullying".

Casey could have totally lost it and seriously hurt this bully, but he didn't. He did what he
had to do, and walked off. He didn't punch him or kick him---but he could have. He picked the kid up and threw him to the ground----and walked away.

Now I read that the mother of the bully wants Casey to apologize. Really?
How about the bully apologize to Casey?

I'm not for violence at all, and I don't consider what Casey did to be violent. He was defending himself.

Been there....

Was bullied for 9 years straight by both equal aged, as well as older and bigger kids, from 1st grade to gymnasium - Always by a bunch of kids in groups of 20. I was always a scrawny kid, the tiny one in school, so bigger kids found it "natural" to pick on me.

When I turned 15, my older brother, who up until that point had defended me from various evil-doers, told me to "just suck it up, and start holding up my own fights from now on - do as I did, learn HOW to fight.."

And that's what I did... First boxing, learning how to punch a hole into somebody's scull, secondly Karate, for learning discipline, thirdly wrestling, in order to learn my own physique and balance (and how to handle someone else's), fourth, Aikido/Jiu Jitsu for agility, endurance and flexibilty, how to disarm someone with a weapon, or just simply protect one's surroundings, fifth, Judo, for learning how to get a douchebag fly on their ass, and lastly, Pencak Silat, a combination of all the above, so it would melt into a nice and smooth HMA/MMA style that would make me a leathal force to face.

Anyways....once the word spread that I've studied various arts....the douchebags tried to test my "skills" - and it was the same bunch, as always..... What happened next is history - They got a can of major whoop ass.....all 20 of them. I was left alone for the remainder of my gymnasium years all the way to graduation. The bullying stopped right then and there. Violence doesn't solve anything? BAH! It's the only thing these douchebags understand!

Hail & thumbs up for Casey for standing up to this punk!

Way to go Casey

I can't seem to edit my posts but I wanted to post this link of an article that
says the Bully's mum wants the victim to apologize.
I saw the video from the poster above me that says differently. Which is correct?

hehe , havent laughed this hard in a while ,

props to the victim for standing up ,

as for the bully , id take a deep dive in to his family for its where this sort of behaviuor come s from,
he was just echoing something that happened to home at some point ,
who knows could be that his father smacks him around or just dont get the attention a child needs at home and this is the way his then in question "channels" the abuse by tranfering it to others ,

id say it comes from his father or brother if something like that can be found in his family ,
anger towards someone bigger , id say its almost a text book case ,.

if i had the time id take em both fishing or hiking

I am so proud of this kid!

Im glad to be seeing more kids standing up to bullies!! A couple weeks ago my 11 year old nephew who is autistic punched a kid in the face at school because he was being bullied by him for weeks. I say good for you. People wont bully you if they think your going to hit them. Although it might make others scared of you too. I would rather have the kids hit the bullies them go home and kill themselves like has happened numerous times.

Watch the video I posted - she said the bully (her son) got what he deserved and she wants HIM to apologize to Casey. She wants all of the media attention to go away (obviously).

Also - to those that say what if the bully got hurt - well a punch to the head always has the chance of serious injury. I've had a cousin killed from a minor hit to the head. A lot of factors are at play and you have the right to stop injury to yourself by any means necessary (screw equal force).

I would certainly rather a 12 year bully learn his lesson than have this happen when he's 18. At that age they tend to resort to knives, guns, and bombs to gain their 'respect' back.

I did watch the video. That's why I was confused when I read the article that I posted
"Bully's angry mum wants victim to apologise "

The bully got what he deserved. You reap what you saw. It's funny how it's always these bullies picking on the supposed "weaklings". To their shock, some "weaklings" respond unexpectedly. It's not that they are "weak", they're just calm, or not into violence. Violence is only triggered in special cases or when in danger like this case.

I can totally relate to this, as I've had myself bullied lots of times, but I wasn't really scared, I just didn't see the need to respond or didn't really have much confidence. Always asked myself "why do they do this?"

Until that one moment where I couldn't hold myself. Responded violently to a kid 5 years older then me, who's been harassing me for almost 2 years non-stop. Ever since then, no more of that crap again. Tbh with you, it felt good; The shocking comeback of a "weakling" that is. Ever since then, I gained confidence and used it the right way. Every time I saw a fight/bullying happening, I'd butt in and stop it.

This is life, we live and learn.
