And yeah, no way he was drunk, his reflex actions are way too fast in the video for a drunk guy.
I agree. There's no way the man could throw a kick like that without slightly losing his balance if he's drunk.

He does that not because he's afraid of being beaten. Get a clue. He does that because he knows deep down the society he lives in thinks the same and won't find give him a big penalty. If he was sure he'd get arrested for a long time he'd never do that. It doesn't matter if a Rambo would be there or not. Physical punishment never stopped people like that.

We live in a society not to have to make justice with our own hands. We don't need people defending lynching and violent reactions. There's law and there's police for that.
Who are you? Gandhi? Jesus?

Now it is in the hands of justice, but in the train, that guy should have gotten what he deserved.

And what that guy deserved was an ass whopping. I hate violence, but sometimes IT IS justifiable. That guy HAD to stand up and defend the woman, there are no excuses...

I am pacific, but not a pacifist.

You two are talking too much. Talking and doing are two very different things.

Playing hero is not something you should do, especially if you're a 17 year-old foreigner.

Playing hero?

For god sake, 17 year olds are allowed to drive cars, they are not kids... and being a South American was one more reason to stand up and defend the woman.

17 year-olds can't drive cars here.

What I mean is that the you two in your hero outfits maybe don't realise the guy was as afraid as the girl. You know, not everyone is a street fighter/brawler like you two.

far from a fighter/brawler.

I understand he was afraid, but thats not a good excuse. He just looked the other way.

It's the excuse. Of course he was afraid. Have you fought a stranger? I had a friend stabbed for doing that at a party, mind you.

Only an occasional minor fight, nothing of importance.

If you were in that train, what would you have done?

I'd tell him to stop, but I wouldn't pick a fight, unless after that he came against me. The guy wants attention. If you actually pick a fight with him, you're playing his game.

Although violence is our natural instinct seeking revenge, it actually works against us in the long run, creating resentment and more violence. Civilized punishments tend to create more harmonious societies.

No way this guy was drunk and that was a shocking incident, Racism is everywhere, it's just some places are more blatant about it.

Neumann, Portugual has been poorer than Spain for a while and they are nowhere near as xenophobic as say in Spain.

Don't think so. His coordination was still too good to be high on drugs.

oh, you don't play his game... you don't fight him while he is harassing a woman...

Yes, I'm sure he will learn the lesson with your example of civility, and be a good citizen afterwards.

Now, seriously.

the right thing to do was kicking his ass, and then get the police as soon as possible, because that scumbag deserves jail time.
