I don't condone violence, but as a parent your child is your life and I can't imagine how awful it must be to witness your child being bullied.

As a parent to 3 beautiful young girls, its my worst nightmare. One of them being bullied. Bullies can end up taking peoples lives and lets be honest, the schools and police do not care one bit. All schools will do their best to brush it under the carpet so as not to ruin their oh so precious ofsted report and as for the police..lol. If the lad was a bully then im sorry, he deserved everything he got in my opinion.

Regards

pretty despicable ex pro athlete batters a 15 year old boy, only reason he is not in jail is the prisons are already too full, flat track bully on the field same off it with looks of it. bullying is bad but apparently there was no proof of bullying, vicious attack by somebody who should no better.

It's as simple as

"Sticks and stones may hurt my bones" but if you bully me then I'll tell my Dad and he will flatten you!

Bully or not, if he “battered him” then he is a bully. It is a matter of degree. He probably got carried away in the heat of the moment, when he had finished he would have said, “Oh poop what have I done?”

If someone is bullying your kids then you are entitled to deal with it but, it depends just how the thing panned out.
It's not great if an 17/18 stone bloke batters a 15 year old is it ?

Surely having a word would have stopped whatever was going but, it depends how much his own kid had suffered.
Dont blame him but, this looks a bit OTT.

Should have gone to the lads parents first.
I know these days a lot of parents aren't bothered but if the lad's dad saw the size of Vila I think it would have persuaded him.
