When you watch this video (probably multiple times), you might celebrate that a little street justice was served. But then when you hear what has allegedly happened to the victim, that celebration could be short-lived.
There’s a video whizzing around the internet that purportedly shows a bully in Australia getting a piece of his own medicine. In it, a tiny tormentor is seen picking on a much larger, yet calmer boy in an outdoor hallway. After repeatedly being taunted and even hit, the “calm” victim finally snaps, picks up the skinny bully, and body slams him on the pavement:

Someone claiming to know the kid wrote to the website Gawker to explain what happened after:
“The larger kid on the right [being bullied], is my son’s friend Casey – thankfully they don’t go to the same school. Poor Casey has been bullied his whole high school life, and this is what happens when he snaps!! But guess who was suspended in this scenario – Casey!!
It’s unclear if the bully faced any repercussions, too.
Thy Sydney Morning-Herald says both boys have been suspended, not just Casey. It also says the small bully suffered a broken ankle as a result of the incident.
The Herald has updated its story and no longer lists the one boy as having a broken leg. Another site quotes a school official as saying the bully only suffered a “grazed knee.”
