Caine Smith, an 11-year-old from Haltom City, seems legit. He's thoughtful, eloquent, and self-aware, moreso than many adults you'll encounter. In spite of, or probably because of all that, he's tormented daily by classmates, who push, punch, choke and otherwise abuse and humiliate him.
So, he made a video for The Bully Project, and he took the local school board to task for turning a blind eye to bullying. The kid's got moxie.
