I've recently heard about this story that appealed to me as a future teacher. A Youtube video popped up from Australia of a kid named Richard bullying a bigger kid named Casey Haynes. This turns out poorly for the little kid: Now, Casey has been hailed as a hero and has been called "Casey the Punisher." More than that, the video has again sparked the debate on bullying, and how it should be handled. Apparently, both Casey and the bully were suspended from school for the incident, and some are outraged that Casey was suspended at all (the little kid clearly throws the first punch), while others think he should have been suspended longer as he took the fight to such an extreme level. You should also know that apparently Casey is three years older than the smaller bully (Casey is in Grade 10, the bully in grade 7). If you google Casey Haynes, stories and videos galore pop up, from the New York Times to facebook pages supporting him. Shit, even Penny Arcade got in on the act. Focus: Bullying.* Ever been bullied? Ever been the bully? How did that work out for you? Alt-Focus: Discuss the video and the case. Is Casey in the right? Should he have been suspended, and what can anyone actually do about bullying? *Note to Mods: I know there is another thread about bullying by IWantSomeJuice just a few posts down, but I thought the video and the viral nature of the story lent itself to a good discussion, so apologies for being redundant.
