Honestly? You think the crowd were going to tear him to pieces? What is wrong with people? Is everyone really that paranoid?

For god's sake, they were only singing Jesus at him. Are people really so sensitive and precious and, frankly, so self obsessed that no one is allowed to mock them?

Boymonkey has it right, there are all sorts of serious issues going on in the world and people think someone being called Jesus by a crowd is an issue? Talk about skewed priorities........
edit on 13-12-2012 by Flavian because: grammar


this is a serious issue, because the crowd dissaproved of his image they heckled him out of the arena. the KKK used to get drunk and do the same kind of thing except they would hang someone

Not really the same thing though, is it? Can't compare the KKK to hecklers at a darts match. As far as i am aware, no one has ever been lynched at a darts match. I am sure i would remember the Sid Wadell commentary of such an incident.


I have changed my mind again though, some of your posts have restored my faith in Aussie humour!

I think you do not understand British humour.
No one was going to rip him apart watch the vid again, plus it is not a full vid and we did not see why they started chanting that.
You are looking way to deep into this.
Anyhow I have said my piece and moving on to a topic that actually matters.

No, i would have stayed and laughed along. Possibly even blessed the pints of those at the surrounding tables - hey presto, situation diffused.

However, this thread has hurt my feelings. Please expect calls from the Police.

I find it a shame that large groups of people such as this only use their desire and enjoyment of herd behaviour for situations such as this rather than for a worthy cause....



What about victim advocacy groups that claim to be for a worthy cause but really they are just lining their own pockets by playing into people's fears?

That happens too...

What about the newspaper that does stories on stupid events like this so they can in turn earn marketing dollars off advertisers that are looking for the demographic that sees this story and is "outraged" by it, so much that it's discussed at every soccer mom gathering in the city.

"Yep, alcohol is obviously the cause of this brutish behaviour!!"

"My son would never do something like that!!!"

"I feel for that boy and his parents ought to be so proud of him for walking out of their with such dignity!!!"

"I just wish we could all do something to make sure nothing like this every happens again!!!"

Bring on prohibition... woohoo


I stand by my original comment........

I don't like pack mentality...plain and simple.

It happens everyday on some scale or another, whether in schools, workplaces, social situations etc...and yes i still believe there is better outlets for herd behaviour than mindless pointless situations than this.

If a person was singled out and chanted at at a school or workplace by a large group for having a physical distinguishable feature such as wearing glasses etc...it would be considered bullying.But on reading posts in this thread apparently it is an expected and acceptable part of being a darts spectator......so if this is the case then each to their own.

How do you know? It would have taken one minute thing and the crowd could have rioted. One minute thing could have turned the crowd violent...against the victim.

He was just fortunate that security got him out of there when they did.

I think a lot of us would, but if you truly felt threatened, then you would leave...anyone would.

This is the sort of thing that happens at darts matches, people sing songs. If you do not like that sort of thing then i would advise never going to a darts match.

If this happened in the street, say, i would be totally with you. Given the context though, i see it in an entirely different way (it appears).

Really, the video and the man's comments speak for themselves. Watch the people in the video with their fists shakin' in the air chanting 'Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus'. And the man's comments about his feelings being hurt because of it.

But keep telling yourself whatever appeases your mind.

 


Yeah, watching the video again shows chants for Jesus. And the only time the crowd booed, was when he was escorted out. The security took him out because they claim they didn't want him to be a distraction.

After reviewing the story again, it looks like if you are gonna blame anyone, it's the security and organizers. Even Jesus himself said:


'It would have been okay if the security hadn't made a fuss getting me out of the arena.

So he himself didn't have anything against the crowd, and even played into his fame after:


He added: 'After the tournament ended, I must admit a lot of people went to get autographs and signed photos from me.
'I signed a few pieces of paper - but in my real name, not Jesus.

It is very mush illegal if the person being attacked feels threatened (Which he obviously did).


That's incorrect....the law states "Using threatening or abusive language".......I doubt that any court in the UK would deem calling someone "Jesus" to be threatening or abusive.

The guy can't have felt that threatened anyway as he admits he was signing autographs and posing for photos after the match.

In fairness, that is California, not in the UK. Cops aren't allowed to wander round with guns over here - not in the spirit of fair play.

Jesus taught to turn the other cheek.

No, but the crowd was using a threatening tone when calling him "Jesus." Others even physically assaulted him. In essence, the whole situation was threatening.

He would have felt threatened at the time. After having some time to cool off (without having 4000 people screaming at you) then you would start to calm down.

But he was happy to stay.....he admits it was security that insisted that he leave,and caused his embarrassment, so if he was happy to stay he obviously did not feel threatened.
