    Thumbs up

    Kudos to you, sir. I'd like to think that I'd be able to do the same (sans the martial arts back-up) to help out in such a situation.

    It's also good to know that you can carry some form of defense in Germany. (I'm assuming that it's legal)

    I had a similar experience on the metro in Paris when I was living in France. At about 11PM, I was with my girlfriend at the time and a group of young teens (about 4 if I can remember correctly) gets on the train. We were standing at one side of the car while the group of teens were in the middle. As soon as they entered, they start running their mouth about how they got kicked out of a bar, yadda, yadda. Most everyone ignored them, even if they were being insulted directly. One of them tried feeling up an early-20s female, but she shoved him back and quickly moved away from them. Since she moved near me and my ex, the aggressor and the others come our way. For some reason they leave the female alone and start harassing me. I was giving them pretty nasty looks, so they start saying "what are you looking at? what's your problem?" I told them that they should just be quiet and leave everyone alone. They then begin to insult my French having a slight foreign accent (my mother is French, but English is my 1st language). They also started insulting my French girlfriend for being with a foreigner. One of them tried to touch her and I just lost it. He got a punch straight in the face. I guess it sobered him up pretty quickly. He then tells his other friends that they should just get off the train. Probably the best decision they made all night.

    I was 19 at the time and probably was a bit more daring. If I had to do it over again, I would have just stayed as far away as possible and not made any facial gestures. I also will not get on the metro past 9PM anymore. If I need to go somewhere late, I'll fetch a taxi. I had no form of protection on me other than my hands. I don't fear falling victim to a gun crime in France, but there are big problems with knives. Next time I make a trip to France, I'll buy a pocket knife and some pepper spray and let a friend keep them for when I return.

    It's pretty common practice in Europe and in larger cities in America to "pretend" that something isn't happening. I guess most people don't want to get involved in a situation. Myself, I don't like to interfere, but if someone threatens another person's safety, I will act upon it. France has strict gun laws, but Czech Republic is pretty lax.

    The Polezi (Police) in Germany often dish out some pretty mean pre-Trial "education" when they feel it is justified. No problem, as of yet, with cries of "police brutality". I'd be very suprised if these young men didn't get a pretty good whoopin with batons and boots before being tossed into holding cells. I knew some soldiers who tried (once only) to back-talk to the Polezi (not personal experience, mind you, I was older, married and working 6 1/2 days a week when I was there in 2001-2004)
