You know sometimes you don't need a gun.....
Please elaborate. I wanna' hear why you feel that way & have such a low-regard for the legal system? :blink:Thug will walk. Driver will loose his job and go to jail for assault. It sux cause the POS needed a beating, but the legal system sux even more.
Respectfully, you're talkin' outta' both sides of your mouth. If the punk "deserved more", then (IMHO) that's the PERFECTLY JUSTIFIED reason to keep...beatin' him! After all, he was still on his feet. :biggrin2:The punk deserved everything he got, and more, but there was no more need to keep beating him.
Disagree entirely. That wasn't even remotely like continuing to SHOOT a downed, motionless person. The guy was still squared up to him the last punch I saw thrown, so he was still a threat, he proved that with his unprovoked attack. In any case, if I had to guess that looks like it happened in the Phillipines. If so the bus driver was probably selected employee of the month.After the punk got off of the bus, the driver should have driven off, but he chose to get off of the bus and continue beating the punk.
The punk deserved everything he got, and more, but there was no more need to keep beating him. Kind of like continuing to shoot an assailant after he's down, motionless, and no longer a threat.
Self defense = protecting yourself from an attack. The kid smacked the driver which was an attack. The driver then turned the tables and stopped the attack. He landed a few punches and stopped the kid. He then continued to punch the kid who was down. Assuming that the kid was still fighting and somehow was a threat to the guy towering above him we can give him a legal pass. The driver then propels the kid out of the bus and proceeds to punch him again. Where was the threat or attack he was defending himself from? The kid didn't look like much of a threat. His body language is one of "oh crap and cowering not I'm going to kick your ass. Legally here in TX the guy would lose his job. Depending on how the local LEO,Why would the driver lose his job? Obviously it was it self defense.
