It was great to finally hear his side of the story. It was as I expected, bullied for years, and couldn't take it anymore.

I saw this this morning. The news was making him out to be a hero.

So I guess this a big national go ahead for bullied kids to attack their bullies?

Are Harris and Klebold heroes now?

The news should just ignore these stories. The way they mix messages and dish out selective praise isn't good considering how gullible people are.

If talk show hosts can be blamed for violence surely news shows can be blamed if kids start taking bats to their bullies, no?

Eerie in the same half hour newscast they praised some kid for attacking his bully and spoke of how righteous it is to bomb a nation because its leader is a bully.

I guess 2011 is the year violence solves everything and it's okay.

Casey handled it well.
He didn't do any major damage to the kid who had been giving him grief for a fortnight before this event happened.
It's best to handle it that way, than wait a couple of years and take a gun to school and blow everyone away because of years having to put up with these kind of twerps.
There is self defense where both parties walk away and then there is VIOLENCE where no one does.

There is no comparison between the two.

Let's be completely honest here... violence did work in this situation, because as much as we are loathe to admit it, we are nothing more than sophisticated animals and this is natural behavior, just like a pack of wolves. Casey stood up for himself and the pecking order changed. Good kid. Loved the followup interview.

This story was well-measured self-defense, in which the bully got away with a scraped knee and a life lesson. Columbine was the obviously disproportionate mass murder of innocents, which maybe one or two had something to do with bullying Harris & Klebold. There is a clear difference

The leader isn't a mere bully. He is a murderous tyrant guilty of democide and killing innocents. Again, there is a clear difference.

Violence can occasionally solve problems, just look at history. I ask you, how would Hitler have been stopped without violence? Wait for him to die of old age? The damage would obviously be done. At any rate, the powerful nation of Nazi Germany would then simply appoint another national leader. Violence, in that instance, was a successful proactive measure to minimize harm.

Bottom line.... This was assault by the smaller kid upon the larger. He should have been permanently suspended for the entire rest of the school year and required to be home schooled with court ordered counselling for the bigger deeper problem that is underlying.

The school/teacher(s) know of this young mans bullying. They have had complaints before no doubt, yet nothing was done early on when his anger management was shown to be less than average.

The Parents, the school and the brat are all to blame for this crime.

The taller young man is a hero for doing something that is hard to do when you are raised to love instead of hate. He was FORCED to do what was against his nature and should not have been REVICTIMIZED by the school district by suspension.

I think some people are looking at this the wrong way. We can all sit here and be politically correct by saying "violence isn't the answer", but the fact is, sometimes it is. Casey was not being violent just to be violent - unlike the other kid. He was acting out of self defense.

Casey, as was said by him in the interview and has been confirmed by his father and sister, has been bullied daily for years. The small amount of friends that he had years ago abandoned him. He contemplated suicide because he could not deal with it anymore. Forget how you feel in your armchair quarterback mode, put yourself in his shoes. He is only 15 and has been dealing with this for years, not once retaliating. Can you imagine what all of that stress build up was doing to him? Contemplation of suicide is just one example of how bad it had become mentally for him.

This time, though, it was different. He finally snapped. And you know what? It was a good snap. He didn't bring a gun to school. He didn't call in bomb threats. He simply picked the kid up, slammed him down, and WALKED AWAY. That's the key. If he was a violent child, he could have and would have absolutely destroyed this bully. But he resisted that urge. To me, that shows great maturity for any age and situation, but his age and situation in particular.

Also, I think something needs to be set straight. Somehow this whole thing got started that the bully suffered a broken ankle because of that. I believe I told some people as well. But as is being reported now and as was confirmed by the school, he did not even suffer a broken ankle. His knee was just banged up a bit. According to the news and school sources, it looks a lot worse in the video than it actually was. So I think everyone who is criticizing Casey needs to take a step back and calm down. He did nothing wrong here and I fully support what he did.

This is natural instinct, folks. When your health or life are being threatened, your natural instincts of self-defense kick in. You can't control them, you just act. We can all come up with these great sounding philosophies like "violence isn't the answer", "don't stoop to the bully's level", or "be the bigger person and walk away", but the FACT is that's not how nature works. These ways of responding to a situation are mere ideas thought up by the human brain that only in a perfect world would truly work. Thinking up these wonderful, perfect world sounding ideas does not change our genetic code and natural instincts. The workings of the mind in response to situations like this is not even close to as black and white as we would like it to be. It is far more complex than that.

I remember seeing a picture of the bully on crutches at some point. Maybe a different injury? Or just to try to grab some sympathy? Who knows.

Bullies always run up against someone eventually who won't cower.

The little punk got exactly, and I mean exactly, what he deserved, and I include the broken bone. Some life lessons should come with a bit of pain, and some scars... Otherwise, what's the point? The little pissant can look at his broken ankle and the lesson is reinforced.

Don't mess with people who, when sufficiently angered, can open up a can of whup-ass...

Honorary applause for Casey.

If you watched the original video before it was pulled... the bully's ankle slammed quite heavily down onto a short cement curb/abutment/wall along the walkway. I also noticed that he was unable to stand or walk without falling over after being slammed. So I suspect that he actually did experience some minor short-term damage that's gonna be painful for a few weeks. I don't believe the crutches are a call for sympathy. I believe he actually needs them. Still no sympathy from me.

All I can say after watching this is... this kid is awesome.


If gets pulled - you can watch it on their website

It's only because this was filmed that Casey was only suspended for a few days.
Imagine if it hadn't have been filmed?
Big kid slams little kid into pavement. Big kid says self defence/ teacher non believing as the other kid is a lot smaller and telling a whole pack of lies about Casey starting the fight.
The result would've been Casey being suspended for a month, the other weasel off for a few days.
THAT you can GUARANTEE.
Casey then would've had the reputation of being this big bully while skinny little kid laughs in his lunchbox.

Just goes to show if anything that all schools in problem areas need serveillance cameras everywhere IF they are electing to not do anything about physical assault in schools.
At least then they have PROOF of who instigated what and not have to use their own bias when judging who was to blame and who wasn't.

I can't find the interview with the bully at the aca link under the video.
In fairness, I'd like to hear what he has to say for himself.
Can you link it?
