If he was a bouncer, then he`s not anymore.

I used to be a bouncer, and you never ever assault someone like that because it`s just that - assault - and it`s illegal. You think venue owners are worried about people smoking? How about lawsuits for assault?

No matter how frustrated and pissed you get (and you do), your job is to protect the business, the rules, etc, not to settle a score personally against someone who made absolutely no physical threat to you. I`d fire his ass and hope to hell the smokers are too damn dumb to sue.

apk892: I know how to use the word lose and did so correctly in the previous sentence. So please don`t be a grammar nazi, a minor typo isn`t going to kill anyone on IAB.

(sorry for the triple post)
my "smoke in the crowd" statement is based on the assumption this is a large concert venue. if this is a small club or bar, just dont do it

also, heres your grammar lesson for the day.

"If i dont show up for work, i will LOSE my job"
"wow, these pants are big, theyre so LOOSE"

if youre going to try to make a compelling argument, you dont need perfect grammar (it is the internet after all) but at least use the correct word

lighting up a joint in the car isnt so bad actually. here in ny the worst thing ive ever seen happen from smoking in the car is having to get drug tested for a few months. no big deal. even in new jersey which, as far as i know, has stricter laws concerning recreational marijuana use, thats the worst ive ever seen happen. now if it happens multiple times obviously the punishment will be stricter but thats a whole different conversation. also, at least here in new york, the bouncers arent allowed to hit anyone unless they are hit first and he was definitely not hit at all. if those kids decided to sue, theyd probably win. that being said, dont smoke in the bathroom, smoke in the middle of the crowd where its harder for a bouncer to find you/pinpoint who exactly is smoking

@Crakr: I agree with you when it comes to smoking in small venues since the owner will be slapped with huge fines that could mean the end of his bar but this is a Stone`s concert(If the title is right). That being said, the fine wouldn`t have such a great effect on the venue.

You can also loose your livelihood for assaulting someone in your business without any warning at all.

McGovern: You know what, if it were my bar and I had the physical ability to do so, a sucker punch would`ve been the least of their problems.

This isn`t the 80`s, when people were snorting coke off the bathroom counter and people were giving each other HIV/AIDS in the stalls. This is 2013, where the laws are such that if you allow such crap in your establishment you loose your livelihood.

Would you allow someone to light up a joint in your car, knowing that you could lose your car, have your license suspended, be thrown in jail for possession and possibly loose your job because of the previous 3 consequences in this list?

I think not, and you`d be justified in slapping them in the head and kicking them out of your car.

I prefer the `fire extinguisher` method of dealing with punks smoking in the bathroom.

patchgrabber found this on liveleak not reddit. Couldn`t embed liveleak`s version and found it on youtube. I went from the information posted on liveleak. I did not consider this to be `earth shattering` news that needed to be `fact checked`.
The liveleak title said he was a back up bouncer (whatever that really means)

Here is the liveleak version that would not embed for me.

I can change the title if it makes you feel better and makes the world seem more stable.

"Those jerks smoking in the washroom were putting that bouncer`s, as well as the rest of the staff`s jobs on the line."

If they catch anyone smoking indoors in a Illinois licensed business they`ll suspend their license and make them pay a rather large fine.

You can`t even light up in a cigarette or tobacconist store. Veterans can`t even smoke in their own VFW halls. I find that to be a bit ridiculous and I`ve been a non-smoker all my life, but that`s how it is.

Misleading title is misleading. Stones later said that this guy is not an employee of theirs and is not allowed back in their establishment. This was apparently a personal matter.

Next time fact check a bit before you take the reddit title at face value.

"Those jerks smoking in the washroom were putting that bouncer`s, as well as the rest of the staff`s jobs on the line."

And lives. It`s a fire risk.

I thought I saw a statement somewhere from the owners of the establishment saying this man ISN`T a bouncer, and was just another patron.

@sleepyhallow:

I agree this wasn`t a correct response, but I certainly wouldn`t call it a "non-issue". I was a smoker for nearly 20 years, and was still glad when smoking was banned indoors here. Being surrounded by smoke all the time was a bit much.

Besides that, with smoking banned indoors means liability for this sort of behavior typically falling with the club itself. Those jerks smoking in the washroom were putting that bouncer`s, as well as the rest of the staff`s jobs on the line. As I said earlier, I`m not saying this bouncer reacted appropriately, but I can certainly understand why he would be pissed off.

Really? Some of you non-nice individuals think it is perfectly OK to commit a violent assault on someone just standing there, minding their own business, getting a little buzz on.

You have twisted phucking minds and need to seek medical help from mental health professionals if you think the use of violence to solve a non-violent non-issue is even remotely appropriate.

Any chicken$#!+ pussy can put someone on the floor with a sucker punch. Hell, that little turd Trayvon did it to a guy who was armed with a 9 mm. However, the guy on the floor regained consciousness, and he had at least a couple of opportunities to stab that prick. Even from the floor, I could had crippled him for life with a 2" blade.

And that`s what I like to think distinguishes a "bouncer" from a professional "doorman".

I certainly don`t agree with the way this bouncer reacted, but as a doorman I can understand his frustration. There are far too many people out there that are disrespectful towards eachother and the businesses they frequent. Nobody ever wants to own up to their mistakes.

If it had been me, I would have kicked them out, only using force if they refused to leave. They would have gone home and wrote an email to the manager complaining about how unfair I was, because of course, I was the bad guy....

Just start laughing out of control, whip it out and start whizzing *everywhere*. He`ll probably give you a good 10` berth after that.
