A belated vent
After reading the thread by h_sh_m, I have a sudden desire to vent about a situation which I witnessed and had some minor involvement in a few months ago. It was most odd.
I was jogging back from the gym, discretely observing the buttocks of a young lady jogging ahead of me.
Passed an intersection where cars were stopped. Suddenly, this jackass sprints out of a bar across the road, wrenches open the door of one of the cars , drags out the driver and starts kicking the **** out of him. So I ran straight there (at the same moment the front seat passenger shifted to the drivers side and took off, leaving his mate).
The kicker and the kickee were both about 17 or 18. Fuckin kids.
Anyway, they ended up in some crude approximation of a half standing grapple and ended up on the pavement outside the bar.
I reached them at the same moment as four or five other bystanders and seperated them.
The attacker was yelling something like "YOU RIPPED ME OFF ****!".
So , presumably they were known to each other and this was the continuation of a dispute of some sort.
Then a REALLY big fucker walks out of the bar. He was wearing faded jeans and a white singlet. Had a massive beer gut and was all round HUGE. Im a big bastard but he he had me dwarfed. Although about half a head shorter, he had arms almost as thick as my legs.
Guy stomped out and started shoving people aside yelling **** like "IF MY SON WANTS TO SMASH SOMEONE OVER, YOU DONT GET IN THE FUCKIN WAY!".
Ok, I thought, he's the attackers dad.
Then for a brief moment I was the only one standing in front of him.
"Oh ****" I thought. Then the bouncers at the bar seized him from behind and managed to hold him in place after something of a scuffle.
The word "Whew" came to mind.
The victim then started trying to reason with the attacker and ask him for his side of the situation. At this point the attacking kid was struggling against the grip of a few bystanders.
So I got the victim and dragged him down the street. I told him if he wanted to discuss it, he shouldnt be doing it while the other guy was rabid.
I took him around the corner and he called the cops on his cell phone.
A minute or so later, I went back around the corner to see what was happening. The dumb kid followed me. Seeing him, the assailants father started storming towards us. The bouncers grabbed him again and he just shrugged them off and kept coming. They didnt pursue any further.
I remember telling the kid to run and thinking "****! IM TOO YOUNG TO DIE!".
The kid stupidily stayed put and kept yacking to the dispatcher on the phone, while I silently committed my soul to any god that would be able to find it amongst the imminent ruins of my corpse.
Then an old lady, a tiny, senile waif, abandoned her table outside a cafe and stepped in between us. She started prodding this goliath in the chest and angrily yelling at him about being a bad parent and stuff (i gather she must have witnessed the whole thing).
He stopped dead in his tracks. After a minute or so, he backed off ten feet or so and started stamping the ground and yelling.
Then the old lady grabbed the kid, took him to her car (parked on the curb) and drove off with him.
The father then turned around and wandered off, while his son decided to make a last symbolic act for the day and ran after the car yelling abuse.
I was a little wierded out and started talking to a pair of old men who also witnessed the incident. They bought me a beer. It was good beer.
The whole thing was just totally fucked up and stupid. Why are teenagers so idiotic?

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
