Casey vs. Ritchard: A Case of Victims-Turned-Heroes and Bullies-Turned-Victims

March 23, 2011

To understand the letter, watch these videos first:

Casey Heynes was videoed being bullied by Ritchard Gale.

Ritchard’s Mom does not condone his son’s actions, however…

Ritchard’s interview about his bullying of Casey… and the suffering of his parents

Now my letter…

Ritchard, you chose to do a VERY wrong thing at a VERY wrong time when videos are easily taken and made viral.  Any common bully from the past would not have suffered the PROPER CONSEQUENCES for their disgusting actions, but YOU HAVE.

And the consequence deserved by EVERY BULLY is the HUMILIATION in the face of the WORLD for ALL THE HUMILIATION and PAIN they have caused their VICTIMS.

ALL YOU BULLIES NEVER THOUGHT A GOOD REPUTATION MATTERED, WELL, as you can see by the reaction of the world, IT DOES.  A single evil act by you caught by the world and your reputation is RUINED FOR LIFE!

And sadly, Ritchard, you had to learn your lesson the hard way because now you are forever known as “The Bully”.

The only thing you can do now is to man up to your mistakes.  Admit your wrongs and apologize.  Don’t make lame excuses like “he started it” or “I’ve been bullied myself”, because that won’t work for you, especially if people see right through you (and your friends in the video) that you’re lying.

I also have this to say about your so-called friends… THEY ARE NOT YOUR REAL FRIENDS for TAUNTING you to continue with the bullying.  Look at them now, they’re still in school while YOU were expelled, when THEY themselves DESERVE to be EXPELLED for being accomplices to the crime–yes, bullying IS a crime.  Friends like that, you should NEVER trust.

It’s a hard lesson you’ll have to live with for the rest of your life… and sadly, even your family’s lives.

To anyone who thinks of making the same mistake, think again.  Karma is a bitch.

Casey, I adore your sister for helping you through your toughest times.  I commend your parents for doing right by you.  And I commend you for your bravery and knowing when to defend yourself.  A school who doesn’t do anything to protect their students from bullies and who treats the victims the same way as the bullies IS NOT DESERVING of your attendance and money.  But it is still a learning experience for you to try and exhaust all other options before resorting to violence.  And even if today people put you on a pedestal, always remember to keep your feet on the ground and acknowledge that God has blessed you with this opportunity to make a difference in many people’s lives.  May God continue to bless you and your family!

Nominate Casey for Australia’s Cross of Valour
