    Holy crap :eek:

    You'd think going into the video that the bigger kid was the bully...

    A win for the gentle giant :D

    What's the whole story behind it? Why was the bigger kid suspended? If anything, this video should vindicate him.

    He did exactly what he should have done. Good for him. That little s*** won't try that again anytime soon.

    Probably because he actually did some damage. Broken shin and nose, if I remember correctly. plus, the whole "he could have broken his neck or cracked his head open" thing....

    Precisely the kind of thing bullies don't seem to care about when they're wailing on their victims. Too damn bad. Like I said, the bully won't do it again.

    Serves the little ****er right.

    Robert Marcus was a bully in my school. I wasn't bullied but I knew a few kids who were. Robert was picking on some kid in gym one day so I went over and pulled his gym shorts around his ankles and pushed him over. I never saw Millimeter Marcus bully another kid.

    I could give a damn, if you keep kicking a friendly dog and it finally bites you than you have no one to blame but yourself.

    Probably has something to do with the fact that school boards are so afraid of lawsuits that they have zero tolerance policies to protect themselves when they get kids whose parents don't see the need to raise them up any more past the level of feral animals.

    hope the video gets spread all through that little punk's school ... the big kid should have done that as soon as the little twerp hit him first.

    I was the big kid when I was in elementary school. I finally had enough and slammed the bully's arm between a steel door and the brick building when coming in from recess and ended up breaking it. I didn't spend one minute in detention or suspension because it was considered self defense.

    Ahh, the good old days before this zero tolerance BS.

    Ah, the old days, when the average parent was trusted to know what is best for the child.

    But the extreme parent unleashed the Social Architects, and the rest is history.

    I hate when people tell kids "use your words, just ignore him/her". It doesn't frickin work! Never has, never will. The only way to stop a bully is with your fist. Kind of like radicals muslims, you can use your words until you're blue in the face, but it won't work. When i was bullied as a kid, my parents encouraged me to punch the little ******* in the face. Guess what? Worked like a charm, thanks mom! My children will be encouraged to do the same. It was funny too, right after i got home from school that day my mom looked out the window and the bully's parents were marching toward my house with a pissed off look on their faces. My parents tore them a new one and told them to learn how to raise kids, good times.

    I had my nose broken so bad in school by a bully that a cavity under my eye filled with blood, and then later, infection. After years of torment when I finally hit back — something that I am in no way proud of — it wasn't an act of retribution or heroism, it was an act of helplessness. It's the realization that nobody is going to help you. It didn't make me tougher, I didn't teach anybody a lesson, and I hope that I never feel like I have to raise my fists at somebody again. I feel a deep sorrow for both the bullied and the bully.

    In Northern Ireland we only got peace after we stopped refusing to talk to the other side.

    I just don't understand how the bully didn't get suspended. He clearly was the aggressor and punched the kid first.

    Apparently the school didn't care about how the incident started, just how it ended.

    The kid got what he deserved, and I have no doubt he's going to think real hard about messing with someone again. Sometimes an eye for an eye does wonders.

    Excellent point.

    Fighting violence with violence could escalate on a large scale until nobody even remembers what the whole thing is about.
