    Good on him for standing up. It takes real courage to stand up to a bully, especially when the bully in question is surrounded by his own little gang of friends.

    And as a recap, brings tears to my eyes every time:


    People say **** like that, but I don't recall ever feeling courageous for doing things along the same line as this fatty.

    I haven't really been following this entirely, aside from seeing the initial video and what is posted in this thread, but just a few months ago, the media was giving much attention to bullying, suicide rates and such.

    Do you think this "phenomenon" will change anything or do you think kids who bully will have to learn on their own - the hard way? Do you think this will encourage discussion between parents and their children... teachers and students? Do you think this will encourage victims of bullying to retaliate beyond self defense?

    I think this video has a stronger impact on those who have already experienced quite a bit of bullying throughout their lifetime, which is why so many questions cross my mind.

    The kid's awesome for piledriving the dude, the dude's stupid for attacking / bullying a guy so obviously stronger, bigger than you

    Bullies should expect retaliation.... duh, winning.

    If this had been at some of the schools near me, the bully wouldn't have got owned a second time. Next time he would have come with his mates and with knives.

    best way to tackle bullies in the absence of a concerted effort by authorities to tackle such issues in my view.. got to be careful not to brain the bully tho - could easily have disabled/killed the lad doing what he did.. not that I can talk, once introduced a lad's head to a door with considerable force :rolleyes:

    Anyone who falls for Richard's little story is gullible as ****. He's clearly making it all up about him being 'angry' at Casey supposedly starting it. He bounces around all arrogant like a prick like that if they're angry? He was clearly bullying him, end of. Can't believe he said he wasn't sorry until his dad made him say he was.

    I know he's young and that but my God is he a little ****.

    I was actually fully prepared to feel a shred of sympathy for the kid but after seeing that it is apparent that he is pretty vile.

    Can tell ya now, the kid who body slammed the use prick could be a very good powerlifter/weightlifter if he wanted to do that from his teens-onwards.

    I'd like to see anybody pick on him then.

    1) This kid didn't kill, he taught a lesson with an injury
    2) He didn't kill people that had nothing to do with the bullying.
    3) You are an idiot.
    I don't think you understood the sarcasm of the exaggeration, but anyways... I'm sorry. Not sorry if I offended you, I'm just sorry that you're too dumb to understand a sarcastic joke. I was just trying to poke a little fun into it that's all, I wasn't crying 'lynching!'.

    Cool.

    For future bro, you can't get sarcasm across through writing in the same way as person, as there is no tone of voice.

    And as for me being "too dumb." Cool.
