    "Marine gets beat down trying to stop bullying attack"

    Know what you're getting in to before injecting yourself into someone else's problem. I'm not saying walk away, but accept the fact that you might end up on the losing end, wounded or worse, dead.

    Well I hope that Marine got in some good licks. Three men beating on a 14 year old. One can only hope they get similar treatment by their contemporaries while they are sitting in jail waiting for their trial to start. I hope the Marine makes a full recovery.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    The part that is very sad is that you had all of those people standing around taking videos instead of helping him. If even half of the people standing there had the same heart of this Marine, those 3 punks would have gotten a beat down before the police got there to take them to jail.

    Cudos to this guy. He said he'd do it again.

    I agree with his comment that "Doing the right thing, is always the right thing".

    Nobody ever said that doing the right thing is the safest thing to do.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Society is very sick these days.

    I am glad the charges were up'ed to Aggravated Battery. Maybe a few months in a cage with Bubba might wise them up.

    If frogs had wings... I admire his tenacity and moral imperative, but his tactics appear to be lacking.

    The inmates had a saying that I felt held true "You may not have to stand tall but you do have to stand up!" I later found out they got it from a movie but sometimes even Hollywood gets it right.

    I detest the "oh-oh squad" that forms to observe and record incidents without assisting in any way. While I support his action, it can be difficult to determine what is actually going on, and who is the "good guy" when encountering an active fight unless you were paying attention when it started. I would not like to accidentally stop the group-beating of a child molester, or find that the "victim" I decided to assist actually started it and the "bad guys" are not.

    Three dudes beating on a 14 year old... no question about what the right thing to do is. Even if the kid had done something that made the 3 adults believe he "deserved it" violence isn't the way to solve disputes. The Marine did the exact right thing. It is disgusting that so many would just stand and watch. We really do have 2 different societies within our nation- sadly the wrong one is winning influence daily.

    He was fighting fair, if at all..
    They were not.
    He should have ran up on them, sucker punched one or two.
    He needed to sucker punch one or two in the cojones when he was down.
    He also needs to think about carrying at least a knife.
    Start cutting off an ear or two, and see how fast these punks run.

    A similar thing happened to my brother many years ago. He intervened into what he thought was an unfair fight at a marina in CA. Turned out to be a drug bust, and he got a hole in his skull and lost his short term memory. Fortunately his lawyer got a settlement from the Gov. because he couldn't work again.
