Casey Heynes Video: Bullied Kid Produces in the Ultimate Anti-Bullying PSA
UPDATE: Casey Heynes, Australia's greatest fighter, has taken a four-day suspension for his epic demonstration on how to deal with bullying at school. His classmates say he's relentlessly picked on, but his heroics have now gone worldwide. See update after the jump...
Get a load of this video from Australia. Casey Heynes, the bigger kid on the right, has been bullied most of his life. And this day was no different, as a scrawny little punk punches him in the face, trying to goad him into a fight. Casey is reluctant at first.
But as the kid continues to taunt him, Casey finally loses it and fights back. And that's when our hero develops an inner bad-ass not seen since Chuck Norris in his prime.
Casey grabs the kid, picks him up in the air, then wickedly body slams him onto the cement. The video cuts shortly after, so we don't get to see much of the bully in the aftermath. But Casey clearly taught the little wiener dog to show some respect.
In the meantime, Casey is a new internet hero. You can find Casey the Punisher here, a Facebook page set up in his honor.
It has been said, so it is written. Casey Heynes, Occupation: Man.
UPDATE: Casey gets a four-day suspension for his anti-bullying demonstration.
It turns out the little prick picking on Casey was three years younger than our hero. But apparently kids at Chifley College thought it was okay to pick on Casey.
"People pick on him every single day, they hit him around and stuff, and he just got sick of it and let out the anger," one of Casey's classmates told the Sydney Telegraph.
But now he fears reprisals. Other students say fights are common at the school and that the dukers are often posted online.
"There'll be reprisals from other kids in the school and he still has to go to school somewhere," his dad says. "He's not a violent kid. It's the first time he's lashed out and I don't want him to be victimized over that. He's always been taught never to hit. Apparently other people's parents don't teach their kids that."
The school, naturally, has come out with the customary puffery that it doesn't tolerate violence, blah, blah, blah. Which doesn't quite explain why it's allowed Casey to be picked on all these years. But at least it had the good sense to suspend the kid who sucker-punched him as well.
Attention Casey: If they're not treating you well in Australia, we're sure you'd be welcome here in northern Ohio. After seeing your obvious feats of strength, we know a lot of middle school football coaches who'd love to pencil you in at the starting left tackle position come September.
