@cruzy, what actually happened is that guy who came in at about 54 seconds, gave those kids spray paint to paint some brands on the skate park, this is as well as the fact that the kids who did the spray painting were repeatedly told to get out because they were cutting off people who were actually part of the competition.

So I guess what happened is that there was a competition going on and some kid skated through, despite that being a bit annoying, that f**kin idiot shouldn`t have just shove that kid like that, also he should probably be done for assault on the other guy too

What`re y`all talking about? Scotsmen? This is in Auckland New Zealand.

@xelous It`s not fake by the way. The idiot who pushed him was on the news and was going to get his ass sued.

Kids? He shoved some teenager. I highly doubt he ran up and shoved him off his skate board for no reason.

This is a great thread because the linked story tells a different tale than the video.

I say cut the big guy some slack: when I was a teenager, if I had showed up with a group and began disrupting and endangering younger kids and one of the dads had knocked me off my skateboard I (and my father) would have thought that I got off easy. It appears Mr I-helped-design-this-park decided to protest graffiti by knocking over little kids. I say he got off easy too, at least as far as Karma is concerned :)

There was a skate competition on for "real" little kids (see the kids saying "can you do this?") The teenagers skated through it several times - were asked several times to skate somewhere else as they were cutting the little kids off - they didn`t and the guy lost his rag - but hey...maaaybe if they weren`t being a-holes this wou;dn`t have happened?

@BostonKaiser And so? A huge motherdrater can start violently shoving the boys?

You sound like the pussies who were criticizing the park designer.

He should call the cops, he did not have the right to touch those children.

This whole story stinks. They organize an event at a public park, but take no steps to gain exclusive use, ie: a permit. The organizers of the event allegedly gave the kids spray cans (referenced in video) to vandalize/tag the park when they were done, which they apparently did. Also, the park designer in the video brought the kids (that were cutting off the little ones) with him to the park and videoed it from the start. There`s way more going on with this than we know.

The cretin in the brown shirt advanced two paces toward the other adult and then throat-punched him. That`s aggravated assault, if I ever saw it. I hope he`s hung out to dry.

Even if the 13 year old was cutting off young kids, that`s an extremely immature way to handle it. It is, after all, assault on a minor, which I assume is pretty serious anywhere.

If the bully-guy did what he did because those kids were knocking down smaller kids, then why did he hit that adult in the throat? And how is that bigbully any better than the kids? They are just kids hitting kids, he is an adult(and a big one too) hitting kids!

Hm. I dunno. I think people should know both sides of the story before getting all upset. Just sayin`.

That`s because you`ve only seen a carefully selected part of the story, a part chosen to match the spin put on it.

The alleged whole story is like this:

Skating competition organised, mainly for younger children (6 upwards).

Adolescents/older children disrupt the competition, endangering the younger children by cutting them up, running into them, etc.

This guy (father of one of the children in the competition, I think) is annoyed at the disruption and risk to the younger children and pushes the disruptors around.

I`m not defending the bully-guy, but there seems to be `another side` to the story, if true.

Short version: Bully-guy claims the 13 year olds were knocking down smaller kids who were having some kind of contest & ignored requests to leave them alone.

Yes, I agree. And if it sounded like I was criticising, I wasn`t - just explaining why the majority of the people in this video behaved in the way that they did, and why most of us would probably do the same regardless of what we might imagine we`d do in an ideal world.

Most of us are a lot braver in circumstances where we`re physically removed from events, than we would be if we were more directly involved. When we`re talking on the internet, or driving a car isolated from other drivers whom we feel free to criticise, are just two examples. There are reasons why we don`t go around assaulting people, reacting with violence at the drop of a hat or stepping in to protect the weak and vulnerable, even when arguably we should. You touched on some of those reaso

To be fair to those who were standing around doing nothing, a confrontation like that is inevitably going to lead to a tragic confrontation where someone is getting seriously injured. Most are not adept enough at fighting to handle a guy like that so that nobody gets hurt, and the only way that a normal sized guy can stop a guy like that is with deadly force (or attempted deadly force). The cops should have been called, but all it would have taken was one of those kids a skateboard to go across his head for all the others to follow suit. However, I don`t blame the kids for not trying.

@aptKangaroo: It`s been a while since I studied it (more than a decade ago), and was getting mixed up with other incidents I read about at the same time. You`re right, it was only a dozen or so witnesses in the Kitty Genovese case, and not "literally hundreds" as I said.

@MacGuffin- Just so you know, perhaps a dozen or so people heard her cries for help and/or saw parts of her being attacked.
Your point however remains valid.

@piperfawn: Unfortunately, that`s just a normal part of human behaviour, and it doesn`t appear to be culturally-based. It`s called the Bystander Effect, and it`s caused by individual members of any large group that is observing an emotive event in which any one or all of them could intervene feeling less individual motivation and sense of personal obligation to do so.

The most famous example is the Kitty Genovese murder that was witnessed by literally hundreds of people, none of whom called the police (you can Google it, if you like). There are many other examples across all cultures throughout history, though, such as the German citizens that watched Jewish children and other `undesirables` starve to death in the streets in the early stages of WWII.

Like Gandhi said, you`ve got to *be* the change that you want to see in the world, and most of us aren`t.

Interesting link @Polar_B! thx!

It shows there are often two sides to a story, even if they appear highly one-sided.

MacGuffin at least one have reacted. If happen to you to see footages of strange facts in America you allways see that no one near the scene do something. I don`t know why? For me is unbeliveble to see people not reacting to the world.

To be fair, that`s what most of the people in this video did too.

Gerry1of1 the difference here is,as you can see, people care about what happen around. In America most probably if a kid take punch from a douchebag people stay near just to watch the scene without moving a finger.

@McGovern: Thanks, I`ll keep your kind offer in mind. Just so you know, though, "getting laid" any time you feel like it is kind of one of the privileges of being female, blonde and in possession of a pulse. Also, since I`m surrounded by an entire country full of the sort of gorgeous Scotsmen that appear to make American women weak at the knees, I might be alright for choice as well.

What`s the matter, Gerry? Not going to declare how you would have laid into this guy, had you but been there? Or is it only female bullies that you assault in your mind?

I find this video an interesting comparison to the video you also posted today of some woman pushing some guy in a lake, kitteh9lives, which lots of people commented on saying they`d have punched her had she been a man. This video clearly demonstrates exactly what would have actually happened had the woman in that other video been a buff bloke that looked like he could handle himself: i.e., nobody would have "punched him", and nobody would have "bitch slapped" him around. Despite all the keyboard warrior bravado of what some people *said* they would do had she been a bloke, in reality, at best, whenever anyone of whatever gender behaves badly in public, only a tiny minority of people will react in any way at all. Even then, they usually only complain verbally, whilst owing to the Bystander Effect the vast majority stand around and do nothing at all.

Would have been a more interesting video if the guy knocked out the bully with his skateboard.
I hope cops were called, punch to the throat on video.
