By now, most people have seen, or at least heard of, Australian internet sensation Casey Heynes. But in case you haven't, Casey is a young, well-spoken Aussie lad that was bullied by other school children for years. In interviews, Casey described the bullying as both verbal and physical, and he said that it was the rare day that he wasn't struck by other kids. But watch the following clip and see what happened when Casey, the portlier of the two chaps, finally said "enough is enough."
Youtube has deleted the video, but it can still be found on numerous websites, including this one: http://www.break.com/usercontent/2011/3/14/casey-got-bullied-2023232
Now, assume that these two combatants were young adults instead of children, and that this happened in the United States. Further assume that the bully (the loser of the fight) went to the police, and the local prosecutor decided to charge Casey (the winner of the fight) with battery. Would a jury consider Casey's actions to be in self-defense?
