This morning on the news I was surprised to see an interview with the bully at the centre of the Casey Heynes video, Ritchard Gale. While he says the
events on the video were accurate, it did not show the entire story which he claims Casey had bullied him and hit him before he hit back...
I know there is a thread on Casey and I think with an Interview with him, but I didn't see any video on the thread.
Just for reference, here is the Casey Heynes interview in which he explains the extent of the bullying.
Now this the Ritchard Gale response.
If you ask me, Ritchard is a lying little nerd who deserved everything he got. "Hey get to class you idiot" is his idea of being bullied which
requires him to attack physically someone else.
Just add some tears and the circus comes to town.
At one point when he's asked if he's sorry, he says "No..." then he looks at his father and quickly says "Ahh yes.."
I posted this in this thread as the other threads of Casey's video were also in here.
I saw this too, it's really disgusting. Although he says he has been bullied, even the reporter mentions this, why do you bully some one, if you have
been bullied and didn't like how it felt? Clearly he is lieing, as for his ''sympathy seeking'' dad, he can put a sock in it.
At the end of the day, Casey gave him what he deserved.
I agree, I doubt had Casey been interviewed then Ritchard would never have said anything.
Even at the end of the interview with him, when asked "Will you bully again?" he has to think about it before saying probably not... He's
It's funny to note too that Casey's dad said that he had no idea the extent of his sons bullying, while Ritchards dad says that it is
uncharacteristic for his son to act this way..... baloney, had this not happened I'd bet my right knee that his son would have a life of crime ahead
of him before long, not that this still may not occur, but now he's got people watching him he may think twice before getting in the spotlight again.
All i can say really is as if. The kids got international attention because of what he did so now hes gonna turn around and say that he was the one
being bullied after all after getting all this scrutiny.
I think its pretty obvious from the video, if casey was bullying him i dont think hes gonna stand there and take the hits he would just be laying it
into him. lol
Also, the little kid really really looks like hes egging him on and whoever is video taping it is the original bullys friend due to what hes saying,
so it definately looks set up by the littler kid. (by the way, im talking about the original video of the fight)
What i cant understand though is that Casey got suspended too, he was sticking up for him self! Of course he should be told to hit someone isnt good
but he didnt have much of a choice really. I think he should be congratulated (as he is )

I would say more than just grog
Also i would like to point out that, although Ritchard is a little lieing brat. He might have had problems at home. I mean why do most bullies become
bullies? Due to having being abused at home, or having a dysfunctional family, which clearly proves itself, seeing as his father looks like a stoner
and his mother is seperated.
Yeah thats a good point, but this could be a blessing in disguise for him as it may make him think twice next time
If that is so, i do sympathise. Australia is getting pretty bad for drugs, a fair amount of people i know are taking some heavy drugs.
But yes as i said, maybe he will change his ways.
First, is there no dental care system in Australia? Second, why is Casey's dad red faced and scabbed missing teeth but we see a younger picture of
Casey red and scabbed all below his mouth. Then we have both of Ritchard's parents snaggle toothed. It seems a somewhat scenic place they live but it
may be rough.
Now to the situation which presents itself even more clearly, I think what you have here, as I said in the previous and original thread, is a case of
the two most bullied kids in school and Ritchard striving for acceptancemay have been coerced. There is the instance of the kid in the audio
commenting about how sad it is getting. I have seen this exact scenario many times growing up. Get the two "inferior" kids to fight for our
entertainment. They get in trouble so what they wanted attention and to be cool, they got it. I think the editors caught on to this by the way. They
depict Ritchard going to the stream and kneeling down looking lonely and pondering life while his dad is stand offish watching from a distance. Casey
and his dad are depicted going to the stream together with brand spanking new cheapass $10 open faced reels with his dad calling him mate. Come on,
any child who was soooo low at 15 to contemplate suicide and their father doesn't pick up on a hint of deep depression is watching too much rugby
tossing back Fosters and spanking the roo. Where is Casey's mom? His sister knew he was getting bullied for 3 years and said nothing? Sensational
network stoory mates and I guarantee everybody got paid in that one. At least a couple of shiny new $10 rigs. And why WOULD Ritchard be sorry? With
all these cameraz he is finally getting acknowledgement and somebody is noticing him. His dad says he TRIES to the the right thing by his son. Read
The boys were played in this and the real perpetrators at the school are scott free.

I have to disagree, i was insanely depressed much of my life, and i just hid it from my family, they had no idea, and still have no idea. I thought of
sucide plenty of times, talked to my sister, much like casey, but didn't want anyone else to know because, its a pain in the ass. I remember in
middle school this girl had a crush on me, and found out all my #ed up thoughts, but still wanted me, and was "worried" and caused a whole mess of #
telling counselors and stuff, who then tried to interrogate me, which just set me the # off.
I think there are 2 types of depressed people, the ones who want attention, those are the ones who go off and tell people, and those who are just
depressed, the later doesn't want people to know they are depressed, because they don't want to be and will try to not be, and by whining about it
you accomplish nothing.
I got over my problems, casey will get over his, most people will get over it. Its just something that happens to kids.
