    Erm, I’ve started fights with people enough times whilst my mates are there. Because they are my mates and they know what I’m like, a) they know that there is an infinitely small possibility that they will be involved, and b) that I would never expect them to join in. I don’t see anything wrong with starting fights in the presence of your mates (apart from the obvious, I always feel like a bellend after.)

    yeah so pretty suddenly he punched someone in the face and ran…. what was i supposed to do run after him? like i could have done anything. i met up with him 10 mins after on the way home, he was fine, and even if he did get a kick in he’d have 1. deserved it and 2. been fine.

    I’m talking in the context of you’re mates being expected to join in like it was some kind of unwritten playground rule.

    No reason is just randomly punching innocent people. Being stared at by a load of twats is, whilst petty, quite valid.

    I have stood by my mates plenty of times when they’re kicking off for whatever reason (admittedly we were all cunts in our teens), but I have never been mates with anyone who would just hit an innocent person.

    Yeah the guy sounds like a right dick tbh, but then tbh I’ve known people like this that have drunk in the same place as me, or lived close to me … and in a convo would call them a mate just as it’s easyer then saing “some one I know”, to be fair I don’t think It’s like a propper close mate of P0ly’s or anything just some one he knows and see’s about for what ever reason and was talking to him at the time.

    Hi Poly ,
    Im with you on this , why get involved in a fight that is perfectly avoidable …..that nutter had already had a fight and was on to his second . If he wants to get in a fight dont mean you have to and yes there is standing by your mates but not when they are acting like that , infact you’d have been justified in giving him a smack and telling him to stop acting a twat !!.

    Make love not war i say and live to fight another day 🙂

    regards
    Mungo

    Not that long ago I came close to having to back up a friend in a fight (or at least try to defuse the situation).

    However there was a lot of us behind this guy and because he had been subjected to racist abuse and threats from former high school friends (and both of us are not white) I felt angry enough to get involved, particularly as I’d seen a rise in racism in the UK since the start of the economic depression and I’ve lived through similar bad times in my youth.

    Thankfully TBH this fight never happened in the end, I think on both sides people were talked out of it. However, I’m not a big guy and I don’t like fighting but will use anything I have to defend myself and I’d probably have at least ended up arrested, if not being brought before Court.

    And TBH society would have every right to bring me to harsh judgement, the last thing they need on my estate is any more grown men in their 30s behaving like 1980s hooligans taking the law into their own hands, and trying to turn it into a Tesco value version of East or SE London, there’s enough angry men trying that already as it is.

    To think about it even some years later is chilling, because in just one weekend I could have fucked up everything I’ve worked for in the last 5 years and also risked the livelihoods of 100 people (as bad news travels fast and people boycott local businesses what employ criminals/thugs.

    These days I socialise a lot less and am very careful who I hang around with because of incidents like this.

    Fair enough if he wasn’t a mate, then who gives a fuck. But a mate is a mate. I suppose it depends on how you define a friend/mate/best mate, etc.

    its a hard one id try to pull him away r something and tell him to wise the fuck up and move on quickly but if he wanted to start the fight as described its his fault, would deffo be different if they started on him for no reason you cant run away on a mate if he starts gettin a kickin for no reason like but that wasnt the situation here

    I would probably try and calm the situation down but if it proper kicked off I’d jump in. Dirty tactics tend to work well when you’re outnumbered. What you do is you shit on your hands, smear it on yourself then throw yourself at them.

    No one wants to punch a man with shit on his clothes, trust me.

    GL I think that’s a bit overboard to be honest, most people actually don’t give a shit whether you get into one fight or not, and certainly wouldn’t boycott a business because of it, unless you cater to a particularly elderly market or something. When I was younger (and if I lose my temper then occasionally now) I used to get in a fight a week basically, and nobody stopped going to the golf course I was working behind the bar at, and we are full up with jobs where I am now, even though my boss is a well known local nutter/hardman.

    I do work in healthcare where they check CRB’s closely and there is zero tolerance of violent behaviour. That said the same applies to businesses which deal with kids and the public including many customer facing roles.

    Where I work if you have been in a fight in high school and can’t explain it in the interview and prove that you have grown up a bit you are less likely to get selected. if you lie about it you will be sacked and it would be classed as fraud.

    Also getting into a fight in your mid 30s and getting arrested and before Court doesn’t look good as your name and adddress goes in the paper for all to see. I’ve heard of a lot of people my age losing their jobs because they get into a stupid fight (particularly related to footy) and this is even in occupations like IT and the construction industry. The concern of bosses is that they might react violently towards a paying customer in a stressfull situation, and things like that have happened before. someone in their teens or 20s might be given a chance if they are a good worker, but still watched carefully. in your 30s you are supposed to be a grown man who has learned self control. You are expected by society to act less impulsively and recklessly which I think is fair enough.

    One of my old locals was a lot like that. It also used to host dance music nights. However whilst the business did well, slowly but surely the cops and licensing authorities kept totting up all the incidents associated with regulars. They identified a number of illegal activities associated with the venue, carefully exploited conflicts between various different groups (particularly the aftermath of domestics between couples and argument over girls) to get people to make statements against one another (despite a culture of “not grassing”) as well as monitoring the amount of underage people going in, as well as working with the Council to ensure these licensing violations were brough to judgement. Eventually they had enough data to put the place out of business within a week. It stood empty for years until it was eventually taken over as a social club for a foreign community (who to be fair have behaved impeccably there in comparison to the previous regulars!)

    A couple of other townie places with worse reputations have just closed down recently because the companies what own the properties no longer want to lease them for night time use, this is almost certainly due to the cost of dealing with trouble being recovered in the licensing fees charged to these venues.

    Of course different levels of enforcement happen in different areas but where I live by and large most people particularly those who have families or stable lives/careers do ultimately respect the rule of law, rather than who thinks they are strongest or can do what they please and its being reflected in how the authorities look after the streets. Bear in mind a lot of people moved here to get away from shitty London estates and see it as a opportunity to improve their lives.
