    So, he told them to go back to Nigeria. Big deal. What did they say or do that wasn't in the video?

    Drunken man arguing with kids, it's looks like average comic youtube video, so what should i see in that video? But she's right in something. It's the 21st century and in the 21st century there is no place for drunken people and kids which are walking on streets late night.

    Re: Did this racist deserve to get punched?

    Here is a guide I will go by before I watch:

    1Did the guy who got punched put his hands on or spit on the person who hit him?

    If so...yes.

    If not? Did he invade their space and make physical contact at all?

    Then yes.

    If none are true? No.

    You can't punch someone for being stupid, racist, or annoying if you have free speech. So you tell me? Was it justified? lol.

    Alright, just watched the video.

    1. The guy who threw the punch was under absolutely no compulsion to stay there. He was perfectly free to move on.
    2. The punch was outrageously disproportionate to the push.

    The punching man was clearly enjoying the trouble and was happy to escalate as far as he could. Verdict: both racist and punching man qualify for two weeks of community service and to rethink their lives.

    Re: Did this racist deserve to get punched?

    im curious what people think could of happened before the video started that would negate the assault on the guy causing him to defend himself and punch the guy?

    not saying its impossible but i cant think of anythign rational or likely that changes anything

    Based on the video evidence alone, that wasn't self defense. I can't imagine a court in Western Civilization that would agree it was.

    it most certainly was self defense
    I cant imagine a court in the US that would say it wasnt

    guy was warned not to get close, then warned not to invade personal space, he ignored those requests and repeated to invade space then initiated force/aggression and assault resulting in him getting free dental work

    if a person doesnt want punch then they shouldn't assault others

    Judge to Punching Man (PM) (you have to read it in Judge Judy's voice): Sir, why didn't you just walk away when the other man was spouting racial obscenities?
    PM: I dunno, just didn't feel like it, the dude was funny I guess.
    Judge: And why did you involve yourself in this verbal altercation?
    PM: The dude was a twat.
    Judge: And when he approached you and pushed you why didn't you walk away then?
    PM: Walk away? That's a coward thing to do. 'Sides, I was defending myself.
    Judge: Defending yourself? Did you fear for your safety?
    PM: Uh, no.
    Judge: Do you have pictures of any injuries?
    PM: Injuries? He just pushed me.
    Judge: Right. Baliff, whack both these men in the pee-pees.

    Being serious, though, one thing that is stressed very clearly in every martial arts discipline I've ever taken, especially Kenpo which has the potential to do some serious damage, is that when the opportunity to walk away presents itself, you walk the **** away. And this isn't for some schmaltzy Buddhist reasoning...it's to legally protect yourself. So a guy comes up to you and pushes you and you remember all those Kenpo Karate moves you spent thousands of dollars and countless hours exhaustively learning, and you break his right arm, crush one of his testicles, take out an eye and break both kneecaps. Guess which one the cops arrest? The legal jargon will vary, but the concept comes down to disproportionate responses, especially when the ability to safely remove yourself was available at all stages of the altercation.

    1.)well if we are going to invent stuff i can too and yes i know you did that just to try and get me to see your point

    Judge to Punching Man (PM) (you have to read it in Judge Judy's voice): Sir, why didn't you just walk away when the other man was spouting racial obscenities?
    PM: it was in front of my building and i wanted to make sure my girlfriend and family was safe
    Judge: And why did you involved yourself in this verbal altercation?
    PM: I didnt he approcahed us
    Judge: And when he approached you and pushed you why didn't you walk away then?
    PM: you want me to turn my back on somebody that just assaulted and attack me that doesnt seem safe or smart
    Judge: Defending yourself? Do you have any pictures of injuries?
    PM: visual injuries arent needed for an assault to take place, countless cases tell you that, judge Judy should know better
    Judge: Right. Baliff, whack both these men in the pee-pees.
    PM: judy thats a poor choice of words (whack) and that too would be assault

    2.) that would be a subject moral and ethical decision that i may or may not agree with and would be circumstantial
    3.) legally this is sound
    4.) they would arrest me for become the aggressor and going past the point of defending myself completely different than one push then one punch

    now if the guy would of proceeded to kick the guy when he was down THEN that analogy would hold up but right now its not even close.

    While the legal system may view the punch as an unequal response,
    we live in a free society, where we have the freedom to be an A$$.
    Exercising said freedom sometimes has consequences, like being punched in the face!
