Ritchard told the Seven Network he was "pretty angry" at his schoolmate but claims he only sprung into action after being verbally provoked. "He abused me first, he was like 'get to class' and calling me an idiot, all that kind of stuff. And I didn't like it," he said. "That's what he's trying to say to make everyone stick up for him. It made me angry so I went down and hit him." Ritchard, who at times broke down in tears during the interview, has admitted that he too was a victim of bullying during primary school, and that this past experience has affected him. "It is only sometimes I snap but half the time they just keep running away so I just leave it." When asked if he was sorry Ritchard's initial answer was "no", but with some coaxing by his father Peter Gale who was sitting off-camera, he then changed his answer to "yes". Ritchard explained that he wasn't really sorry because "he [Casey] started on me first".
