- Bullying Fail…..
- Capt. KronosMember
Similar thing happened to me when I was a nipper, with a broadly similar outcome in the end. And yes… I was the big lad and employed a pretty similar response tactic.
Always was a bit of a gentle giant and that just attracted that kind of attention from the lads that wanted to appear hard. It absolutely is bullying I suppose, though I never really looked at it that way at the time (got called names quite a lot and had people try it on). Eventually you snap, cause some proper pain and it all stops. All in all it was a rather good move on my behalf and I hope the lad in this video finds the same! I don’t think he should have been punished as severely as the agitator but then I suppose they have to respond in some way to the fight. Then again the little lad did have the worse punishment as he was both injured physically and will also be widely mocked by his peers from now on!Posted 8 years ago
Charlie the defs seen reasonable to me.
Like I said if you’re lazy about your English then go you, I always thought words had different meanings for a reason but you must know best.
I’m not lazy about my English. What now? You show me where you where you were wrong and admitted it?Posted 8 years agoWoodySubscriber
IMO the little turd got what he deserved and I’m only disappointed that they both received the same punishment.
The big lad acted with remarkable restraint after years of bullying and was acting in self-defence.
BTW as has been pointed out above, it is almost always the mouthy little gobshites who start the trouble, even when they get older. Hopefully he’s learned his lesson 😈Posted 8 years ago
well, I’m feeling the love…
I was trying to play devils advocate, to a certain extent – it’s too easy to judge the world based on a 60 second phone video. I think I was trying to make the point that, from a few seconds of video the motivations of both parties is unclear. On the surface it appeared to be an unprovoked attempt by the little kid to get a rise out the big kid (and, if it was he succeeded). Yes it was funny seeing the little kid getting hammered for what appeared to be attacking the big kid for no reason but they’d probably have both been suspended on the bsis of that video.
My view – bullying has to be over a period of time rather than as a one off incident – again a clip of one event doesn’t allow for that impression to be gained.
Kaesae – I didn’t attack you on the CRC thread – I said on a thread about bearings that I thought it best for you to promote your own product rather than make snide remarks about CRC ‘Free credit card fraud with every order’ – dissing your competitors is not good business practice – if you feel that’s an attack, then apologies. On the CRC thread I suggested that none of the cycling press had picked up on the CRC fraud thing and elicited a comment from them – the whole thing was being (at the time) denied by CRC – and that there seems to be little ‘consumer interest’ type writing in the mtb press (although subsequently I’ve received a WhatMTB with a ‘secret shopper’ thing in it so maybe that’s changing) – interestingly BikeBiz (a trade journal) has been doing secret shopper stuff for years and are quite scathing about shops on occasion.Posted 8 years ago
Well, if folks need more evidence than that to decide wheter or not it was bullying then it is no wonder we hear of people walking by whilst others are attacked or robbed in full view of the general public. Or maybe I just have special powers, but my spidey-senses were certainly tingling there.Posted 8 years agodavesmateMember
That is justice. I tell my lad “try not to let anyone hit you or if they do make sure you hit them back”
I told my little girl exactly the same thing, my mrs went mad. The thing is I know it’ll get her in trouble one day but I Also told her as long as she didn’t start it I’ll back her all the way.Posted 8 years ago
