    Happy slapper . . . . slapped
    By Will Pavia
    Victim turned the tables after a youth attacked him while another thug filmed with a mobile phone
    A HAPPY slapper’s mobile phone recording of an attack took an unexpected twist when his victim retaliated, flooring his assailant with a single punch.

    In footage that is rapidly gaining cult status, an athletic young man in a white vest is seen plotting the attack on a stranger, filmed on his friend’s mobile phone.

    The British man, on what appears to be a foreign street beside the entrance to a shopping arcade, addresses the camera and, as if he were preparing to sing on the ITV1 show Stars in Their Eyes, says: “Tonight Matthew, I’m going to be. . .a happy slapper.”

    The cameraman, also British, can be heard encouraging his friend, saying: “OK, the next person who comes out.”

    In front of the camera the would-be aggressor is getting excited. “Which hand?” he says. “I’ll give him both. A double, he’s getting a f***ing right slap.”

    Sufficiently prepared for the assault, he tells his audience: “All right, let’s have it.”

    A passer-by emerges from the shopping arcade: a smaller man, wearing a leather jacket, a bag slung over his shoulder.

    The happy slapper runs towards him, drawing back one arm to swing and catch the man full in the face.

    The victim recoils in pain and drops the bag.

    He sees his attacker turn and walk back to his friend, who is laughing and still recording the scene.

    Incredulous, he screams with rage. He asks his attacker what he was doing. Judging by his accent, he appears to be from Liverpool.

    The victim then approaches the youth and throws a fierce right-hand jab, punching him on the chin and knocking him unconscious.

    The man holding the camera phone shouts his friend’s name but carries on filming.

    The man in black regards his assailant sprawled out on the floor.

    Then he picks up his bag and storms off, still muttering in anger.

    He is perhaps the first recorded victim to turn the tables on his would-be attackers since the slapping craze began.

    It is thought to have begun in South London but has since spread across Britain and Europe.

    Incidents have ranged from minor assaults to the killing of Soho barman David Morley in a gang attack on the South Bank in London in October 2004, all recorded and circulated on mobile phones.

    Coverage of the phenomenon in the press has been mirrored by constant chatter in internet chatrooms and on online message boards.

    Some attackers post messages boasting of their slaps, some request new footage to be sent via e-mail.

    Others condemn the craze. “Try that in Liverpool,” wrote one correspondent, “theyed (sic) be lucky to get out the city alive.”

    The man of that city who stood up to his attackers may yet gain a hero status on Merseyside, as a scourge of the happy slapper.

    I am glad this happened, although I wonder what would have happened if the slapper had 6 or 7 mates nearby....

    What is happy slapping? Sounds sort of like gay spanking.

    Alleged "craze" in which perps go up to some random bloke/schoolgirl/old lady and slap them, recording the thing on their mobile phones and posting on the internet. Probably not as prevalent as first believed. Often degenerates into many-on-one beatdown.

    I'm all in favour of Chavs being made to suffer. True, the scavvy bastard didn't get maimed as much as I would have liked, but it was a start.

    Haha, that's awesome.
    Big right hand!

    The kick to the head was unnecessary, but the kid fully deserved the punch.
