Right thing to do?
How hard was the kicking?
We were standing outside a pub when this guy walked past with one friend.
My friend Nadine said she liked the look of him, and asked if she could have his number. His response was sometghing along the lines of "No. Fuck off. You're black" which was then followed by about a minute of abuse from him.
There was a standoff for about another minute between him and his friend and a couple of us who were shouting at him what a wanker he was.
At this point I went to help some people from Norfolk find a club. On my return everyone had left the pub.
I was a bit annoyed by this and started walking back to our house. About two minutes later I saw the two guys walking away from me (by the fountains in Bristol City Centre)
I ran up behind him ,and kicked him pretty hard in the back of the knee. He went down on the floor
I ran away realising he was about 8 inches taller and maybe 50Ibs heavier.
though you probably shouldave hit him in the first instance.....
he deserved that.
I reckon it's always ok to do that to people like that because if they squeal, you have back-up saying how racist they were being.
Just take advantage of the situation, that's all :)
would be better, but you still win major cudos.
if this was myspace, that post would get NO KUDOS!
I'll give her that.
Kick all racists always.
'spelling kudos incorrectly'
but he was kinda deserving it...
but under these circumstances i can't see it being wrong.
you did well, not just get a costume and do this EVERY friday around bristol (like a batman for the west country).
he's hugely nasty.
But risky if you were alone...
so he was your friend's son??
we can all say a punch to the face would have been better, and it's true, but quite hard to actually bring yourself to do. sounds like you made him look a pillock, anyway.
though i would add:
You went out in Bristol city centre
Right thing to do????
really want someone to say something racist to a friend of mine or whatever so I can kick them.
I've never even been in a fight and don't like violence but I can imagine enjoying it immensely.
i weave fantasies of exactly how to deal with such situations
that racists can also come in "attractive looking" but ugly inside.
Sounds like he lacked the charm of saying "oi cheeky" to your mate, and earning himself good karma.
is it violence or just a reprimand for better manners. id say the latter.i think it was very kind of you not to kick him in the head or bollocks, or something psycho like that, and i'm glad you escaped.
that was your good karma that was.
As far as i remember its a free country,if he wants to be a tw*t thats his perogative,words are only words if he had struck your friend then i would say kick the living sh** out of him but creeping up from behind and kicking him in the knee (of all places) earns you nil points im afraid.
i knew the login for the stupid_post account.
responds to a girl asking for his number with racist insults?
he basically kneecapped himself, right there.
except your friend Nadine.
You attacked him from behind then ran off.
That's really quite cowardly, and you come off far worse for it than had you just left it.
Because he'd already made himself look like a prick?
Did kicking him make you feel big or something?
some violence visited on him is better than none.
I just don't.
I'm now sober and I still think that he deserved it.
You might think it was cowardly, but this guy seemed like the kind of prick who would happily glass someone.
The only regret I have is I only kicked him once.
I mentioned the fact that there were two of them and both were bigger.
In theory it would have been better, to demand gentlemanly fisticuffs face to face.
I would have lost that fight, and in my opinion a massive wanker would have gone unpunished.
I'm not a very violent person, but sometimes I think Physical Force is right to be used and I think it was right in this case.
"seemed like" really isn't a good level of justification.
Reading this you come across as much of a prick as he does to me. *shrug*
I think this a really strange opinion to have.
you were righteous.
Don't kick people, basically, is my policy.
it's just let down when nuances come up like people deserving it.
Eye-for-an-eye mentality is just... awful.
and kicked you first
Yeah he deserved a slap, but since everyone here is opposed to any sort of physical punishment in rape or paedophilia cases, I think you're all a little bit twattish.
'Violence solves nothing' etc. etc.?
still makes me fairly happy. well done. good choice! etc.
