A serious, and surprisingly affecting, end to last week’s palate-cleansing saga. It’s Casey Heynes, bullied schoolboy turned cherubic, 16-year-old Aussie avatar of revenge for millions worldwide. He’s … exactly how you imagined him to be. Intelligent, soft-spoken, and driven to such despair by his daily nightmare that he cops to having considered suicide last year. What’s harder to watch, a sweet kid talking about his complete social isolation or a father realizing for the first time how bad it is and that there’s nothing he can do?
That’s the first clip. The second has bully Ritchard Gale insisting that Heynes taunted him and therefore kinda sorta started it. Hmmmm.
