I think this is a reflection of society in general.
If you are in any violence whatsover regardless of who started it, both get in trouble with the police, quite often the one that does the most damage
is the one who gets the most trouble.
I remember when I was in my teens, there was a gang of about 20 people that would beat people up individually for no reason at all. They would circle
you and get a guy who was younger than you to hit you, if you hit back they would all attack you at the same time. Now some people might think this is
weak but I spent my teenage years running from this group, I was fit and I could fight but I dont care who the heck you are, you cant fight 20 people
at once who are three years older than you when you are only thirteen.
This went on for years at the school I went too, until one guy stood up to them, he could take a hit and dish it out. They broke both his arms and his
father arrived to stop this, one of the boys broke a piece of fence from a nearby house and hit the father in the head with it. Unknown to the
bullies, there was a nail sticking out the end of the stick, that father now can hardly speak as he was brain damaged from it and one of the boys was
charged with attempted murder.
This guy was let out after 6 months as he was under sixteen and in the present the same gang walks my hometown now as adults, breaking into houses,
selling drugs on the streets, fighting with people for no reason and so on.
Choosing to fight is something that I believe is a last resort but sometimes its not a resort at all.
I think this video could potentially cause a lot of bullied kids to get hammered by standing up to bullies if they are inspired by the young kid body
slamming the bully, that causes a lot more psychological damage than bullying itself I think. I dont think im the only one who lived in a place where
a bunch of kids had adults terrified of them.
Dont get me wrong though, its important to stand up to yourself but theres more ways than doing that, than fists alone.
