Yesterday, we saw video footage of Casey Heynes body slamming his bully (above) in an effort to defend himself.
What you don't see in the video is that Casey pleaded with his bully to leave him alone before body slamming him, and after the incident, BOTH students received a punishment of four days suspension from school.
Casey's father is concerned for his son's safety following the fight, and had the following to say about it:
"There'll be reprisals from other kids in the school and he still has to go to school somewhere."
"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."
We certainly understand where Casey's father is coming from, and we hope that proper measures are taken at his school to counter against future incidents.
Do U think Casey deserved to be suspended? Do U think students would dare to lash out against him when he returns to school?
