BULLIED KID FIGHTS BACK
Welcome to last week, Doug
True that but worth watching again....
There are now many bully hotlines in existence.
NOTE FOR THE RECORD: In her Arkansas days, Hillary Clinton established the first rape hotline in that state. Yes, quite a coincidence. My guess is that, if Juanita Broaddrick had made a report, they would have hung up on her. After all, the attorney general then running for governor would never do anything like that, right?
Sorry, I did a search for the title and did not find it. I just heard it on KFI.
Thanks for posting because I missed it before.
I just lifted your tagline for facebook...
Yeah, but thanks to Doug, anyway.
I didn’t bother to check out the video the first time it was posted, but did this time.
Glad I did!
How can anyone from that video know this was a case of a “bullied kid” fighting back? It’s impossible to know who started what or how or why. We see the little guy punching the big guy, then the big guy body slams him. We see no lead up or if there were earlier punches thrown or what.
has to be a follow up to that, anyone got it?
also, did you notice the big kid that jumps in at the end in a menacing way confronting the bully victim, then an even bigger kid (looks like a girl) jumps in to back off the second guy and the “victim” walks away.
love to hear the whole back story and follow up.
Looks like Casey the kid broke the kid’s leg...good for him.
Looks like Casey the kid broke the kid’s leg...good for him.
Looks like Casey broke the bad kid’s leg...good for him.
Thank you for posting this. I missed it this morning. Best thing I’ve seen in ages. I applaud that kid for his moral courage. I am glad the other kid didn’t get seriously injured but I know from my own personal experience that walking away or telling the teacher does not work. It only makes it worse. That kid had every moral right to do what he did to that bully regardless of whether he told the teachers or not. There is a line from the book “Into the Looking Glass” by John Ringo that describes that little bully in his choice of a target: “sometimes given to acts of less than calculated logic”.
I only saw this a couple of times this morning on the news if it is the same video. Fat kid body slamming stupid kid who picked on him?
That rascal may have a future in the WWF! “Killer Casey”!
Yeah, don’t pick on someone twice your size. Damn that little kid is stupid!
And now, the stupid little kid is suing the guy who slammed him.
Looks to me likehe needs to be slammed again, and harder.
This has been viral for at least a week, but I still love hearing the “THWOP” sound the little jackass makes when he gets (deservedly) slammed.
True that it is hard to derive much from the vid, but since it went viral it's been established that the big kid had been picked on by these kids (some of whom are heard in the background) over an extended period of time.
He happened to choose that day to draw a line.
Nah...it’s the mother of the little ‘angel’ who is suing. Says that now that the video has gone viral and worldwide, she and her son are experiencing “emotional distress’. She also wants a public apology from the “bully” who ‘layeth the smacketh down’ on her poor, defenseless little boy.
If I were Casey’s parents, I’d be saying “Bring it on, be-otch.” The video CLEARLY shows that Casey held off and did NOT want to fight and only acted after displaying incedible patience with the little turd.
Oh...and it wasn’t his leg that was broken. It was his ankle.
In the news report I heard, Casey had contemplated suicide because of the bullying he was taking.
Actually, it's even worse. Now the little weasel is a VICTIM: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2692137/posts
This has been covered quite a bit in the news over the last week or so, and the back story has been discussed. The big kid had been the victim of bullying for some time and finally decided it was enough. Even the bully’s mom said her son nwas wrong and deserved what he got.
Understood, its just that the bullied kid was so much bigger and totally kicked ass.
We didn’t used to have rape hotlines in the USA. Why? Because forcible rape was a capital crime in most States. But then came the psychologists and the fraudulent Kinsey Study that was used to get sex crimes penalties reduced in all 50 States. Now we send sex criminals to worthless “treatment” programs that factually make the perps MORE violent. Good for shrinks’ paychecks though. Gotta keep those priorities straight.
I say if you can prove forcible rape or drug-induced rape you execute the perps. I’d bet that the incidence of rape would decrease. Just a guess.
And fighting back against bullies is exactly what it takes to get them to leave you alone. With a baseball bat, if necessary.
The big kid was interviewed on TV, which I saw last night.
He said he had been bulled much of his life for being overweight and even contemplated suicide a year ago.
Since that video went viral, he has received a zillion e-mails supporting his action. He now feels good about himself, is very happy, and no longer depressed.
I saw it last week. I have seen it this week. And I will enjoy seeing it next week.
When I was a kid, I was bullied a few times because I looked like an easy target. Boy, were they wrong! A few irate mothers called my home over the issue of missing teeth. My mom told them, “Then keep your boy away from mine!” and hung up. End of story. We didn’t depend on lawyers in those days.
I saw that dozens of times in High School; some little guy trying to show he's tough by sucker-punching some big kid who's known for not fighting back (raised in a Liberal household, perhaps?).
Only a couple of times did it end like this, with the big kid giving it right back.
More than once, the crowd who'd been cheering on the little twerp would start chanting "Pick on someone your own size" at the bigger kid.
I just watched the video. LMAO! That’s how to educate bullies.
Mommy standing up for her diminutive little tyke?
That is just too rich :D
Ya shoulda done a better job from the start.
I was that big kid when I was his age.
I didn’t think to body slam my antagonist. I just ignored them, until they came and begged me for help on their homework. Then I ignored them more. I only had to punch out a few guys.
Me too. There were a few bullies in grammar and middle school.
They all started and ended the same way. Them provoking, me avoiding them as long as I could, then, them being very sorry.
I could have saved everyone a bunch of time by simply accommodating them with the ass-kicking they wanted from the start.
It's very obvious to the rest of us, and if you look further you will find that the big kid has been picked on for years.
It looks like the little bully comes from a family of bullies, as his mother is insisting that the family of the big kid apologize to the bullies family..
The mothers actions are also those of a bully.
She feels humiliated because the video has gone viral and the bullies family is getting all sort of grief now that his victim has stood up for himself.
“... has to be a follow up to that...”
I saw a short clip on Fox this morning. The larger kid did some sort of taped interview. He had a very meek voice which surprised me. Anyways, he said that he had been bullied by some of the students at his school for months about his size. He said he “snapped” when he did the body slam because of the past bullying issues. Sounded to me as if the initial bullying was ongoing and not addressed by school administration. IMHO, the smaller kid learned a lesson... don’t hit someone and not expect them to defend themselves.
Someone else posted that the bully’s mother said he deserved what he got.
My only point was based on the video. It comes on with the smaller kid throwing a few punches to little effect for a second or two, followed by the big kid picking him up and slamming him.
Without knowing the back story I could not possibly determine one is a bully, the other the victim. There could have been other punches or whatever before the video started.
It's at least a three man operation.
They've got a cameraman. This is going to be fun. They want to capture the hilarity and share it with their friends. After the first few punches elicit no reaction from the victim, we hear the cameraman chuckle, "This is sad, bro." Yeah, that fat kid sure is a pathetic speciman, huh?
They've got the bully. He walks up and punches a boy in the face without no provocation. When the second punch is blocked, the bully starts dancing like a boxer. Oh, it's on now! Yeah! Let's go!
Lastly, we have the Big Kid who steps in as backup when the bully is taken down. The Big Kid moves into the scene in a threatening manner, but is persuaded to back off by the older girl who also steps in.
You ... uh ... you're not sure about this? You think maybe the fat kid who got punched in the face is the real problem here?
That could very well have happened.
It's also possible that the little kids father was beat up by the big kids father last week, and the little kid was just trying to defend his fathers good name.
And the mothers also got into it a few weeks ago, which doesn't appear on the video either.
Seesh, the attempt to excuse bad behavior seem to be a mission of yours, just as it is the stronghold of Liberals everywhere also.
Yeah, i noticed that. but what were those two doing will the fat kid was getting pounded? that was ok with them? they just stood there? that is also sick
Now I’m a liberal or just like a liberal, pretty funny. I think you have demonstrated a tendency to jump to conclusions regarding me, and the video.
If there is a back story fine. But the video itself lasts seconds. When it opens the little kid already is throwing punches. Does that mean he struck first? No. Does it mean he is a bully? No. He may well be but I can’t tell that without seeing him walk up and start it.
Seconds later he gets his ass promptly kicked. Therefore I cannot know from the video alone, who started this, who was the bully and who the victim. And neither can you.
It seems to me that jumping to conclusions over a partial video and insisting on knowing what happened is the M.O. of LIBERALS viewing, for example, the Rodney King police tape.
My entire point was the video alone does not tell the story of what happened. I was shocked to see the “bully” was half the size of the victim. But thanks for the insults.
Never said you were. Read what I posted.
Seems like video comprehension may not be your only comprehension problem.
Balding Eagle can’t you play nice? It’s a youtube video. Did I attack you for your interpretation of the video?
If you don’t want to be attacked, don’t defend bad guys.
I did no such thing and I don’t think you’re being very nice.
Stating the video itself was not sufficient to determine what happened is not defending bad guys. I guess you have taken the definitiveness of this short video to be a great cause worth fighting for. Good luck with that.
Bullies like to impress their friends by picking on those who seem weak or defenseless. In this video, the bully has two friends who are laughing, enjoying, and making a video to record the bully's actions to torment the big kid. This is the only way to interpret it using what we call ‘common sense’.
I was introduced to bullying on a playground when I was probably 4 years old by a kid who threatened me with a sharp stick. Then again in the 5th grade by a kid who had been held back a grade or two. If he liked my nice pencil, it was his. I gave it to him because I was afraid of him. But he ‘liked’ me so no one else picked on me. When I move to California later that year, some kids decided to ‘bully the new kid’ so they picked at me every day trying to pick a fight. But I was a shy kid and didn't want to get into trouble at school knowing the trouble I'd get into at home. Finally, I decided I'd have to take a beating (better from the bully than my old man) so I said ‘let's fight but not here, let's go over to the Park because I don't want a teacher to break us up’. He thought about it for a minute and decided it wasn't worth the effort (or the risk) and they left me alone.
I raised 5 sons and taught them things like ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, ‘watch out for each other’, and ‘don't start a fight but if pressed, be sure to finish it.’ In 10th grade, one son was in a boarding school and was being picked on relentlessly by a kid (in their group of friends) to the point of an actual permanent injury to an eye. During his holiday visit he told me about the kid but couldn't understand why he was being picked on. I explained the concept of a basic animal behavior called ‘pecking order’ and how bullies like to pick on others, putting them ‘down’ in order to elevate themselves in the ‘pecking order’. I told him to carefully pick a time when all of their friends were there and when the kid picked on him, go ‘beserker’ on him, grab him around the neck, throw him to the ground and start pounding his face. I told him his friends would eventually pull him off the kid and that once the story got around, no one would ever attempt to mess with him again. When he returned to school, such a time occurred in gym class, the bully began to mess with him and the bully was surprised by the quickness of my son who took him down and started pounded his face (while the gym teacher ‘turned and looked in the other direction’) for a few minutes. Word got around and no one ever tried to pick on him again.
I could give you more examples but if you don't get it by now, it would be a waste of my time. Needless to say, no matter what school they were in, no one ever tried to bully one of my kids more than once after that. If our schools were able to nip this kind of behavior in the bud, they would but sometimes they can't unless they are forced by the parents.
As parents we have to have an open dialogue with our kids and find out what's going on at school. If we don't, we can't help them through these really rough periods in their lives. Many a child has committed suicide because of these relentless attacks on their persons and self esteem.
It's hard for most folks to understand but it goes on every day, in almost every school. Parents need to talk to their kids at an early age and explain it to them so they'll know how to deal with it the correct way (fighting is not the best way, but sometimes it's the only way). Get school officials involved early, with a personal visit and using written correspondence (in case legal action is required later). You put enough heat on the school and hopefully they'll take action. If you ever see this kind of behavior going on, I would hope you'd step in and stop it. These bullies need to be put in their place. Good job Casey.
Let’s be clear, I was exposed to TONS of bullying. I once quite foolishly fought back and jumped one of our schools top wrestlers, resulting in me being in a headlock of course.
The version of the video I saw and which I believe was at the link, was extremely short. One kid throwing punches, the other immediately picking him up and finishing him off.
That and only that is why I was surprised people were so sure the VIDEO on its own, told the story.
last night on Greta, I caught a glimpse of a longer version with the smaller kid dancing around and throwing punches.
I know all about bullying, don’t support bullies, support the victims. I simply and only reacted to the version of the video which I saw, I never disputed the existence of a back story or that the big kid was, in reality, being bullied.
Nor did I ever defend the little kid, I simply said the video I saw didn’t explain what happened in terms of the bullying story.
I do appreciate and identify with the story you related.
And lastly, I have myself posted a great story from my childhood in which my (formerly) wimpy friend was being beaten up by the neighborhood bully, until the much bigger bully made the mistake of kicking him in the groin, at which point my friend went completely ape and beat the crap out of the bully with a flurry of punches.
I hope that clears things up.
