That is awesome!
I wish he had a gun….
Or a sword.
Cool, but how do we know the guy who was beating the crap out of them with a bball bat wasn’t also a gang member? I guess I’d be a lot happier about the beating if I knew he was a “good guy” or something.
really anyone who hits them with a bat is good guy in my book
Does a good guy carry a baseball bat ready to beat people with it?
No. He just cariess bat to play baseball.
But really, does it matter?
Yes, good guys do carry baseball bats in their cars! Especially if you have to drive through not so good neighborhoods. We have a baseball bat in our truck just for protection. I was told by the DA attorney in my little brother’s murder case (yes he was shot by a gang member simply walking to school – a case of mistaken identity) that her father who was a captain in the local Police Department always made sure she had a baseball bat in her car when she was a teenager.
Either a good guy or a bad guy – he taught them a lesson. Whether they get it or not is up to them. Unfortunately people who have the mental attitude to think that behavior is ok aren’t of the mindset to learn life’s lessons. They will probably believe they are the victim.
I carry a machete in MY vehicle. D:
Me too. And an axe.
I don’t go looking for trouble – BUT I got a baseball bat at home, in the yard where I work and an aluminium one in the car, never had to use them yet and hope I never do, but if the day comes that I have to swing, you can be bloody well sure that I will swing with power.
you are an idiot an obviously a liberal
You must be a true conservative to deduct that he thinks differently from you, so he must, therefore, be an idiot and a liberal. Congratulations on twisting his comment into a first amendment argument.
Regardless of whether he was a “good guy” or not, it was 7 against one. Gotta even the odds somehow.
Clearly not actual gang members or they would have knifed him or shot him.
not quite accurate
You get that from TV shows?
They may not be Bloods or Crips, but they’re a gang of aggressive, obnoxious young men who could have killed the guy if they’d had the chance.
haha camera guy cracks me up
I laughed every time the guy with the camera said ‘yes’.
Any indication where this took place?
Chinatown in Boston
Damn, did you hear it when the bat made contact?- DAMN!!!Turn out the lights….the party is OVER!
That sad walk of shame at the end was hard to watch.
I know! Thru the tears and the belly laugh I could barely watch it either!!!
I wish he’d beaten every one of their heads to silly putty. Good for him.
little harsh maybe
I can’t see why he didn’t just reverse over them in his car, that would have been even more fun, still, good work with the bat though.
Didnt want to ding up his car.
Complete with the American flag-
Useless little angry cowards.
Do no good for anyone.
We dont need them here.
..what evidence do we have to know these guys are actually in a gang? Looks like a bunch of friends just looking for trouble.
Um…. that’s a gang.
in a town neighboring the one i grew up in, 3 minors unaccompanied by an adult constituted a gang, legally. this meant i and my two girlfriends (we were 16, 16 and 17) could not walk down the street to the gas station. to put this in perspective, the population was something like 600. so while that’s a little ridiculous, yes, seven adult men who obviously want to start a fight with someone who’s done nothing, it’s perfectly fair to call them a gang. legally.
hahah I love how the camera man kept saying yes! He cracked me up haha
Looks like a bunch of drunk idiots looking for a fight. Ban alcohol and legalize marijuana, a bunch of stoned idiots would not have been causing any trouble (unless you are a hamburger).
Yeah because alcohol is obviously the source of problem here and not a gang.
Yeah except every single gang member smokes hella weed
You do realise that marijuana is known to exacerbate and set off schizophrenia in individuals who are susceptible? Not defending alcohol, here (or gangs – if you’re not violent to begin with, then drink doesn’t make you so…) or smoking, etc (insert every legal and illegal vice of choice) but weed is far from the innocent high we like to claim it is. I was ambivalent about cannabis for a long time, but having seen the very real effects of what taking cannabis has done for many patients on the psych ward where I worked, I wouldn’t wish what some of them experienced on anyone. There are few things in this world that are more frightening than the things schizophrenics experience, and watching people struggle through a tough episode, and then relapsing because they started using again, was tough for everyone. Their personality and sense of reality completely changes – people who were normal, chill folks can become paranoid, fearful, irrational or violent, and can absolutely be a danger to themselves and others when they are having an episode and not on medication or back on cannabis.
If everyone got stoned you’d just get much higher numbers of psychotic stoners out there doing what the voices are ordering them to. Not really an answer.
TL;DR: marijuana can cause severe schizophrenia if you are susceptible. Not a harmless drug.
My only wish is that the dude in the car had like 3-4 buddies with him that all had bats. Those punks would have got pwned. Seriously tho, he’s lucky he got away, no doubt those guys would have killed him for sure.
yeah that walk of shame made me giggle
you can tell the white guy has some sort of down syndrome.
wtg, baseball bat guy. those jerks needed their asses whooped.
It is a wonderful thing to see some one stand up to those plunks. This video got my heart pumping a bit
I’m glad I don’t live in the good ‘ol U.S of A.
Yup. This stuff doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world.
Shopping List today:
Gallon of milk
1 aluminum baseball bat
The real Batman.
Pretty offputting to hear the camera guy in constant voyeuristic moans of “YEEES!”
Oh man that is one of the greatest things I have ever seen. That is what happens when a bunch of Massholes bump into each other! Oh man, can’t stop laughing. Ha ha! Tough guys! Ha ha! Idiots! The sound of that bat! Awesome!
Hell yeah! This would only be better if the people recording had called the cops before hand so the dudes could get arrested after they got the nonsense knocked out of them.
This may be a silly question, but I’m not a city girl so forgive me. Maybe you big-city people can enlighten me: Why doesn’t someone just call the cops? Like the guy recording the video, wouldn’t calling the police be more effective?
Target ETA for emergency services is three mikes or less. A hundred and eighty seconds is a long, long time when you’re a long, long way from home, citizen. Some adult humans, and even some juveniles, are capable of killing with a single blow. That’s not to say that the police shouldn’t be notified – cops, guards, and soldiers generally agree you should even call them first if at all possible. But thugs are like fires – if you are equipped to fight and have a reasonable chance of success, you should do so. “Reasonable” is arguably subjective – I would not prefer to engage seven people, of unknown armament, without at least a firearm of my own. But different strokes for different folks.
I did notice though, that one of the gang members was at first warning the driver ‘drive! Drive!’ and gesticulating at him to carry on, but he got pushed by his fellows.
I don’t know if the other guy is a gang member, and I don’t approve of violence – the injuries you can give or sustain can be severe or even life threatening, even with a fight like this. But they ganged up on (as far as anyone can tell from the video) a random driver, spoiling for a fight. If it wasn’t baseball bay guy, it would probably have been someone without protection. I don’t know whether he could have driven off and not confronted them, but if it was in self-defense, then it was reasonable – how else could you stand a chance against 7 thugs out for your blood?
Hopefully that would have been a lesson to these men to rethink their lifestyle (especially the one who seemed to be less abusive/violent than the others), and that being in a gang is actually not the protection it seems, but actually increases your risk of serious injuries or an early death.
In all likelihood by the time the police got there, it would have been too late for a batless guy, who would have already been seriously beaten up. The police should have been told, but they would come to a crime scene (hopefully with a not too seriously injured victim), rather than something just happening. I’d argue that you should do whatever it takes to reasonably defend yourself, but then I’m a short female in a country where people don’t own guns, nor do we generally have baseball bats, so what that would be is debatable.
