  1. and they will drop him like a hotcake pretty soon

  2. These kids are great. Why is that kid at regular school? Should he not be at a school for kids with special needs?

  3. Now the whole group will get bullied

  4. now i want to see what they are doing today

  5. I know I am kinda killing the vibe and I am not sure,but I think this is a bunch of bullshit only shown in the camera

  6. Even though I’m a girl, let me join those boys PLEASEEEEEE

  7. Awe bless these bully bodyguards. This warmed my heart.

  8. Too bad i never got this respect growing up…now im 18 and only have like 4 friends

  9. Probably have terrific parents also.

  10. Amazing young men….. kudos to the parents….. well done!!

  11. What great kids. I’ll bet they grow up to be wonderful people.

  12. Azzyland title “ these kids will restore your faith in humanity”

  13. It’s sad that a bunch of 10 year olds are more mature than some adults

  20. Ibwish somone did this for me your licky to friends like them! Make the most of it#

  21. Yeah good on them. Why should they put up with bullies.

  22. 716 dislikes this video about anti bullying ?? I mean that is just sad

  23. As a dad with a 7 year old autistic son, I will buy these kids a beer when they're 21. The big kid is a boss, and he's that one kid that even the bullies won't mess with, so he uses his size and strength to protect someone weaker than him. All these kids obviously have awesome parents, so much love and respect to whoever is raising these great young men. I hope my son has friends like this when he is older.

  24. What tomorrow's leaders are doing today.

  25. It's takes a heart of gold for anyone to do what the boys did to buy a Playstation for James

  26. i know it might not mean that much to them now, but i hope when they get older these kids honestly realize the impact they had on that child's life. good on you, for real. respect.

  27. Dammit this is the best thing ive seen on here in a while. Im in tears.

  28. I hate bullies especially the internet trolls ones who cause suicides
