While I`m not okay with bullying, I can`t totally condemn it either. Getting bullied back in my school days was a large part of what made me the stronger and tougher person I am now. If you really want to stop bullying then learn how to throw a punch, you don`t get bullied near as much once you make yourself a harder target.

LandoGriffin couldn`t agree more. As a girl I`ve actually interfered a couple of times but ONLY when it seemed like the person wasn`t under the influence of alcohol or drugs and not acting overly insane, because regular guys usually don`t hit girls (at least where I`m from).
This video actually made me kind of angry, putting people on the spot like and acting all self-righteous about it...

LandoGriffin, agreed. I think you`re likely to stop someone you`re pretty sure you won`t be targeted, or think absolutely wouldn`t attack you. I was attempted mugged on a pretty packed train car in NYC by 6-7 thug types, and people pretended to not see what was happening... even though I yelled for a couple of big looking guys for help. It was eerie, a bunch of people staring straight ahead. Luckily, I was able to break free when the doors opened at the stop and high tail out of there (it was also my stop).

I started watching, and when the actor playing the bully said to the bystander (by-sitter?), "why didn`t you help?" I don`t understand why he didn`t immediately answer "because you would have beaten the crap out of me" - that`s what I would have said!

I noticed a pattern: two types of people helped: women, or guys who were stronger than the bully (black guy in sweater who filmed it, and the guy for whom the actor said "you did a great job") The people who walked away: all smaller and weaker than the bully, and would have gotten beaten up.

I would have walked away, too, because the bully would have beaten me up.

You bet. That type of behavior doesn`t happen around me. It`s beyond not acceptable.
