A viral video is demonstrating just how swiftly karma can come back to bite.
Just seconds after a high school bully punched a blind student in the face following a short confrontation, an intrepid figure enters the fold with a bludgeoning strike of his own.
Video shows the bully crashing to the hard concrete of Huntington Beach High School in Southern California where he remains shocked and motionless.
“Trying to f***ing jump a blind kid, bro,” says the teen, identified as Cody Pines, who intervened as he stands over the bulletin.
“I swear to God, if you f**k with this kid again I will f**k you up."
Video of the incident has since gone viral after being shared on Reddit, where commenters praised the teen who stood up to the bully.
Despite the internet's praise for his bravado, Cody was suspended under his school's zero tolerance for violence policy.
An online petition was created to have his suspension recalled, which has already gained close to 75,000 signatures.
It's not the first case an indecent act coming full circle to bite the hand that first dealt a cruel blow.
Grandmother fells ex-boxer with vicious right hook
This former boxer got a crystal clear lesson in the virtues of respecting one's elders when he lashed out at a female co-worker in front of a security camera.
Don't underestimate a good boxer though
That Russian champ may have gone down in a humiliating heap, but the same can't be said of this Irish-Kuwaiti student of the sweet science.
Set upon my a mob of assailants, the tourist looks almost casual as he knocks them out one at a time.
The best laid schemes of drunken men...
A lot of ideas seem good at the time and at least our ill-fated brawler has some company.
Also featuring highly among the list of bad ideas were these drunken Canadian sports fans who decided to launch their own version of an obscene internet joke on a Canadian reporter.
Shauna Hunt was not about to let them get away with it though and took the fight right up to the group of young men. She quickly wiped the smiles from their faces and, according to subsequent reports, cost at least a couple of them their jobs.
Watch the road
Earlier this month a cyclist in Hampshire, UK, learned this lesson the hard way when he took a moment to flip off the Mazda MX5 he’d just cut off.
Foresight can fail you too
If you’re going to get into a fight outside of a pub, you are obviously not planning on losing. Of course, the best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry and leave you nought but grief and pain.
Pride comes before the fall
When this driver blew past a police road bloke, recorded the ensuing chase and commentated the entire episode, we assume you had a plan in mind. He at very least appeared to have a point to prove.
Unfortunately, the police also had a point to prove when they finally caught up and the high pitched wailing issuing forth from the driver’s seat seems to indicate Australia’s answer to William Wallace had absolutely no idea it would end this way. Live and learn.
Exit strategies matter
This West Australian crook might have had better luck if he'd scouted the exact location of the doors before he stole a woman's bag and crashed full-steam into a glass pane.
We’re not in the business of giving crooks tutorials, but this lesson applies to anyone prone to rash actions – situational awareness is important. Without it reality will hit you hard. In your face.
