    The UK has roving bands of criminals going around attacking innocent people at random, and they also have very strict gun control. Coincidence? I think not.

    Those idiots were considering banning picture phones as a remedy to happy slapping.

    Only in Europe can thugs brazenly assault people in broad daylight and take photographic evidence of their commission of the crime and get away with relative impunity. Coming soon to America if the self defense banners have their way.

    I think too many people are taking Charlie Murphy's Hollywood Stories too seriously. Everyone is trying to be like Rick James, but there's only one Rick James. What did the 5 fingers say to the face?...SLAP!

    Seriously though, these ID10ts try this in the US, someone's gonna get double tapped.

    Definitely. If this happens to me I will shoot first and deal with the legal proceedings later. I remember a few years ago people were doing this in LA and DC, but for some reason I have the feeling this fad won't be coming to Florida :D

    Sounds like a good reason to cuff some punk across the chops and put him on his butt. It probably won't go over here too well, because of just that.

    Happy slapping should be followed by Happy Drawing of Weapon.

    It would be some time before this dweeb would slap anybody else,

    with two broken forearms.

    someone is going to

    say it; so i'm not to sure shooting someone for a slap, unless they are much larger than yourself will go over to well.
    that said because of work i am "downtown" often without a firearm so the happy slapper better be able to out run me or i'll set on them, grab their ears and pound their head into the sidewalk untill they are no longer a threat or the cops show up.

    I think it's perfectly morally justifiable to shoot someone(s) who is attacking you to death. I know I wouldn't feel a shred of remorse. That would put a quick end to this nonsense :fire: Unfortunately, morality and legality are not always the same thing :(

    have you ever had a 250lb. guy set on your chest and slam the back of your head into the concrete? it don't take long to make it look like you where hit with a .45! and it will probably be easier to defend in court.

    As an alternative exploration of reality,

    perhaps the cell phone might be crammed,

    (Efficiently, of course)

    in their rectal orifice?

    Give 'em a hug, the poor misguided lambs...

    A 260 pound, fence post hauling, hay bale heaving, shovel running, wood cutting hug...

    Least, that's what I'd do. For the children, after all. ;)

    And if that don't work, give 'em a busted jaw, I hear idiots are best taught with negative reinforcement.

    Negative reinforcement is the removal of an aversive stimulus to reward a behavior.

    Exactly what I'm thinking. Negative reenforcement means taking away something that's unplesant.

    Farnham, I think you mean positive punishment. It's not just some hippy PC term, it means when somebody does something bad you punish them.

    No need to shoot them. Just take their cell phone away and bring it to the police. Then press charges for felony assault and bring a lawsuit.

    We had a paintball incident in Anchorage a few years back where the shooters videotaped the whole thing. The only reason they didn't get shot is because they targeted drunk natives. Even so they were pushing it. If I saw someone appear to shoot a man in a driveby, complete with what appeared to be red blood coming out of them, I'd kill everyone in the car.

    If you feel justified in drawing your weapon after being slapped in the face, you really need to re-examine whether or not you should be carrying a firearm.

    ^ Look up some of these videos. These people are not simply being "slapped in the face". Many times they are attacked by a large group of individuals and kicked etc.

    I think the primary problem here is that you wouldn't know that it was a "happy slap" thing. You are just minding your business and say 1 to 6 people attack you. You've got no way of knowing it is "just a slap". Somebody will get shot if idiots try this much in the US.

    Agreed; it's more than a light slap to the face. I saw one long video on Arfcom that was beating after beating -- some mild, but still a beating.

    He would first have to be fast enough to land the slap... (ive been a martial artist for nearly 20 years.. im pretty quick) After landing the punk on his back side, Id kindly smash his phone on the cement... then give him a swift kick in the face as I go about my business... Maybe toss In a comment something to the effect of... "something your daddy shoulda done a long time ago"

    I saw that report on the news. The thing of it is that the people dont know what is going on. the slapper as i saw it would walk up from behind or other direction while the prospect is being distracted by the one with the phone. So just remember that and if your awareness is like it should be you should be able to avoid it completely.


    Farnham... I dont think that they would target someone of your size anyway ;) It would make there videos have the impact it might if the person beat the crap out of them. I would love to see one try to slap you.. I would bring the popcorn and my pa-pa's lether razor strap. That always hurt :evil:
