I'm guessing cycle couriers have to believe in themselves to the point of jerkdom to survive doing what they do, so were probably well up for a bit of battery.

If the assaulted did the crime, then fine, nothing to see, move along.

On the other hand if he got on the wrong bike, or is messed in the head, then its not cool.

Much better than court. The police aren't real justice this simple act is. I hope he walks away and this doesn`t follow him.

"Not justified at all. There's due process in the legal system"

Chris Rock said it best...

"It`s not right,...but I understand."

"Not justified at all. There's due process in the legal system for very good reasons ..."

These two guys possibly just saved the tax payer thousands upon thousands of dollars - police salaries, judge`s salaries, lawyer`s fees, court costs, jail costs, possible prison costs, etc. etc

30 second, well deserved beat down where very little actual physical damage was done vs. passing the costs on to the tax paying public? I say, slap the taste out of that boy`s mouth and be done with it.

Just sayin`

Not justified at all. There's due process in the legal system for very good reasons, one of which is to provide a better system than vigilante "justice". You need proof and witness reports cannot be used reliably on a scene to do any more than determine whether further investigation is required. Mobs very often get the wrong person for a crime, and we have NO evidence that this is the man who was attempting to steal bikes (or if any thief was even attempted).

Comment threads like this make me very glad that we don`t use mob "justice", as that is no justice at all.

Also since when was corporal punishment deemed civilised?
