Thrusting somebody headfirst onto the pavement is an attempt to cause grievous body harm. And for what? A poke on the nose. No excuse to retaliate in that manner.
I get that almost every single one of you has a story to tell about being bullied as a kid, but I think you're letting that cloud your judgement. You guys seem to be vicariously seeing Casey lay a beat down on your tormentors. Isn't that kind of, messed up? Why can't you guys let go of your past and see this for what it is?
Okay hypothetical scenerio where I get ganged up on by people who CAN kick my ass; I'd run if I could, but if not the only logical resort is to locate a weapon and strike first, then get away ASAP.
In a situation where the threat is unable to physically harm me in a manner which threatens my safety at all, like with Casey here, deny the threat by simply leaving the situation.
If he pushed the kid aside and said "your little #er, you ain't #, I will crush you" and then walked on his merry way, I'd be proud.
A measured response without any concern for his ego would make me very proud and know that I did a good job raising the boy.

For anybody that has a kid in school, there are laws that protect children who are found to be mentally challenged. If a mentally challenged child is found to be in possession of a knife, they can not be expelled from school. If he or she is known to become violent with other students or teachers, again they can not be expelled. The law gives them the benefit of the doubt that they don't know right from wrong. I don't know if this little bully was mentally challenged, but parents and children should be made aware of this.
