    Well, funny thing is that I don't find myself in fights...ever. The last time I was in a fight was back in college when (and I swear my involvement in this thread wasn't about this, I only remembered the incident just now) I came across a loud mouth drunk at a party and I, genius that I was, decided to give him crap for being a drunk asshole. Aaand he started a fight with me before his friends pulled him away. But I can tell you now that I don't hang around belligerent drunk people, and when I find myself around them I tend to move away from them because drunken, belligerent idiots tend to do drunk, belligerent things. And if a drunk idiot did push me, I can guarantee you I didn't know it was going to happen until it happened or that I had no way to distance myself from him. At that point, anything I would do would qualify as self defense.

    But like I said, put yourself in the same situation that Punching Man in that video put himself in, then when the both of you are arrested let us know how your argument works for you because I can promise you we'd all love to hear about it.

    Yeah, a one punch and done won't be caught by the cops less the cops happen to be on scene at the time.

    Sorry, sometimes people run their mouths too much and get popped in the mouth for the effort. It's easy not to get into confrontation by kowtowing to everyone around you and not stating opinion and not standing up for yourself, but not all take that path. A man puts his hands on another, he has initiated force and force can be resisted. That's the end all be all. Words are all fine and good, but physical altercation is a different game.

    So every time Bruce Lee spent the first hour of a movie avoiding being drawn into a fight (you know, until the last fifteen minutes when he kicked every ass that was ever born) he was "kowtowing?"

    I call being dragged into stupid fights that have nothing to do with me, don't involve threats to my loved ones and contain no benefits, to be weak and worse, out of control. We have a word for people who have low impulse control. They're usually in jail, and they're called "losers."

    Nope, just building up to the handing out of just deserts. It just happened faster in this case.

    Not so much dragging as ending. But that's cool. When someone puts their hands on you, you can slink away. I won't say you can't. But if you pop the dude in the mouth, I won't say anything against that either. Be as brave or as cowardly as you like, it's up to you.

    I thought it was in the UK and if it is in the UK the risk of arrest and punishment is a lot higher due to the enormous number of camera's hanging in the streets everywhere. If there is a big brother society, it is the UK

    Not that I am against CCTV, if it is deleted within a certain time frame and only re-viewed in case of a legal need, then I do not have a problem at all with CCTV camera's in every single street in a city center.

And look at the video again: the very instant he was pushed, it was like his birthday, Christmas, and New Years all rolled into one and he instantly took the shot. There was no "Oh crap, this drunk asshole is shoving me!" just instantly decking him as hard as he could. The guy who threw the punch was clearly looking for trouble, found it, escalated it and enjoyed every moment of it -- he wasn't innocent, being a part of that incident was his choice. Both those assholes should do community service for being idiots for contributing in their own little way to dragging the human race down.

    Saying that guy was "defending himself" does an incredible disservice to actual innocent people who are just trying to mind their own business and are assaulted anyway.


    At 1:58 the dude chooses a new target when the chick left. He Chose poorly.


    The black gentleman stood his ground. I applaud him.

    I also applaud his restraint, I would have kicked the guys teeth in, and smashed the camera phone.

    Meh. I would have fired a Hodoken at him, punched through his ribcage and grabbed his still-beating heart, taken a bite of it and said, "The guy just didn't have his heart in it." [heavy metal guitar riff]

    Cool.


    see my point though, watch the video, he decided to confront the closest onlooker and shoved him, got punched in the face for it.

    Or I could have spun kicked him into a meat freezer and yelled "Hey buddy...time to chill out."
