Like… But… Cosequences???

Share Button

Everyone is talking about the vid of the bully getting his comeuppance by the victim. I really like it. Wish I would have had that kind of courage when things like that happened to me. Of course, I was very small for my age. It would have been nice to have more body mass too!

That said, this won’t end well. Either the bully will sue the victim due to injuries and win the lawsuit, or he will commit suicide, and the victim will be blamed for fighting back.

Sometimes, I wish I wasn’t so cynical.

Here’s the video. I hear it’s getting pulled left and right, so I can’t guarantee this will work for long.

Oh look… The kid that was being bullied is getting suspended! What is wrong with this world.

    I’ve heard that both kids were suspended. There’s justice for you. Take-home message: “Bullies win”.

    When I was in kindergarten, I had a crush on a certain girl. One morning, my five-year-old sense of romance go the better of me, and I decided I wouldn’t let her out of the cloak room until she kissed me on the cheek. Seeing this, my gray-haired, batwing-glasses-wearing teacher took me aside and explained, “That’s not how young gentlemen treat young ladies.” I apologized, and the certain girl and I had milk and cookies together.

    Today, I’d probably have been suspended, my parents sued, and a sexual predator tag added to my “permanent record”…

    Both kids were suspended for 4 days. This is automatic in the case of a school fight to allow for cooling off and to give the school time to investigate.

    So far it’s worked out quite well for young Casey as he has been getting support from across the planet.

    Serious questions are being asked if the Ritchard (the attacker) was put up to it by two others. The guy with the camera and the bloke in the white shirt seen at the end.

    It’s looking more and more like the footage shows two victims. One the victim of bullying and the other a victim of very nasty peer pressure.

    The kid defending himself should not have a suspension on his record. Period. Maybe he could have been given excused absence for a few days, not a suspension.

    The kid who did the bullying looked entirely too comfortable with what he was doing for me to interpret it as peer pressure. He was NOT a victim, he was a perpetrator.
