Bully’s Mum wants apol­ogy

Townsville Bulletin - - National Snapshot -

THE mother of a bully who was hurt when his tar­get hit back, wants the vic­tim to apol­o­gise to her son.

The mother of bully Ritchard Gale, Tina, said she and her fam­ily had been vic­timised by footage of the fight which has spread world­wide via the in­ter­net.

She also de­manded an apol­ogy from the vic­tim.

She said she was ‘‘ shocked’’ at her son’s ac­tions, but didn’t think he de­served to be bodys­lammed by Year 10 boy Casey Heynes at Chi­fley Col­lege’s Dun­heved Cam­pus, St Mary’s in Syd­ney.

‘‘ I was ac­tu­ally shocked be­cause I al­ways brought my three chil­dren up to walk away from fights,’’ she said.

The video of the Year 7 boy, who was hurled to the ground by his vic­tim af­ter try­ing to start a fight, was taken down from the YouTube web­site but has been posted on other web­sites glob­ally.
