Casey Heynes has had enough and body slams bully....

I heard about this video and searched into the wee hours of the morning to find a posting of it that I could download. 

Youtube has banned it and I wanted all to see it....please forgive me...it is horrific to see this gentle giant bullied.....

Also forgive the graininess of this video, but it must be seen none-the-less.

Here is what I could find about this young man Casey.

"Australian student Casey Heynes —an unofficial anti-bullying PSA posterboy—when he was captured on video bodyslamming a bully that had hit him in the face.  The (much smaller) bully taunted and hit Casey after school while other kids laughed and videotaped the whole incident. 

Eventually, the much-bigger Casey could take no more, as he picked up the scrawny antagonizer and smashed him hard onto the concrete.

The youtube description states that Casey's had enough. He "has been bullied his whole school life," says the video description, "and this is what happens when he snaps!!" 

The YouTube page provided the following information, allegedly from Casey’s friend’s father:
“This 16 year old kid has been tormented every single day of his short high school life – and today he snapped!! He was suspended and may be looking at criminal charges, all because this little runt thought he could make an example of Casey in front of his “tough buddies!!”

There are facebook pages to support Casey who allegedly has been suspended from school.

So many people are showing support to this young man...



Casey Heynes - Bully Slapdown - group trying to raise a scholarship fund for Casey

Casey stands there and takes a slug and then another one, he is a gentle giant...he doesn't want to hurt anyone, he is trying to say, "hey, leave me alone" the bullies friends are videotaping so they can show how 'tough' they are as they bully another boy.

Casey trys again to deflect another punch and then another.

He has had it and instead of punching, because punching is bad, he wrestles the bully and then picks up the kid and slams him to the ground....

Listen people, in a young boys mind picking up and slamming your attacker is much less violent than punching him in the face....Casey did all he could....

All he wanted was to get away....Please watch as Casey is walking away! I can guarentee you that he is crying, he never wanted to hurt anyone!

WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP BULLYING??? 

Kudos to the girl who steps in to stop the other bully from going after Casey.....

Questions? 

How can a boy be bullied everyday and no one give a DAMN and stop it?

Where are the school administrators?

Where are the parents?

Where is anyone to give a damn?

We as parents need to get involved!

We have to take a stand and stop bullys, we need to teach our kids to take a stand and stop each and every bullying act they see and to immedaitely come home and tell us what happened. 

We as a people need to take a ZERO tolerance against bullying!

'Kiss and Tell' - Brandon Davies and Danica Mendivil


Brandon Davies BYU suspended player
I thought that every young man was taught that he wasn’t supposed to kiss and tell, but here we have Brandon Davies tearfully admitting to his entire damn locker room that he had sex with his girlfriend…OH MY GOD! I have heard of tragedies in my day, but I don’t think that the tragedy of making love to your girlfriend of 3 years is one that needs to be confessed to the whole damn locker room….shame on the people that either expected it, wanted it or condoned it…

Today we have heard so much rhetoric about premarital sex and the arguments for and against as they were bantered back and forth. A young man has most likely thrown away a pretty promising career and maybe even that of a few of his friends because he was taught that premarital sex was bad, and then he went ahead and loved his girlfriend and made love to her anyway….

Wow… here is what some of the players had to say according to NYDailynews.com, Davies is said to be, "extremely remorseful, heartbroken" a source told The Tribune. The team's best player, Jimmer Fredette, recounted Davies' apology. "He told us everything. He told us he was sorry and that he let us down," Fredette said. (told them everything???)

Brandon Davies girlfriend Danica Mendivil
Heartbroken? Tearful? This poor young man and his girlfriend, Danica Mendivil, a freshman on the volleyball team at Arizona State University, most likely will never sleep together again or with anyone else. Talk about making someone feel really awful about sex!

Now I am not saying that BYU should not have done what they did. If players were required to wear purple toe nail polish, then they gotta do just that, what rules the coach makes, or school makes, well those rules are followed or you are off. Brandon knew all about those rules. 

But what concerns me is the tragedy of two young people who obviously care for each other...and then were made to feel that they have done such a terrible wrong that it required tears and locker room confessions! 

I really believe that this whole story is about 2 people who love each other.  The world does not need more sexually messed young people, and this is exactly what is happening here. I feel sorry for Brandon and Danica…and not because they have ‘sinned’!
