Wonder if it involved the guy running around on the dancefloor with only his undies on.

Maybe just a no ball, pool loss.

More of a gang bashing than a brawl. 2 guys don’t have much chance against 7-8 (maybe more!?) bouncers. Was one of the worst displays of “bouncing” I’ve seen. One of the victims was pinned down by a few bouncers & then soccer kicked in the face by another ffs. Hopefully someone has a video.

Hopefully you contact the Police with that information…

Sounds about right. I’m sure Uni Pub has CCTV inside & out of their premises. At 12.50pm, there’d have been numerous witness’s as well.

If you find yourself in a fight, and it’s a fair fight (ie the odds are even, or any other evidence of fairness) then you’ve made a bad mistake right from the start.

The standard military approach is that you don’t attack someone unless the odds are at least 3 to 1, and preferably 10 to 1, so 7 to 2 sounds about right to me as a starting point

I’m not defending the bouncers, just saying that if I was in their position I would hope for similar odds. However, kicking a bloke in the melon when he’s pinned is the equivalent of shooting prisoners, and that is The Wrong Thing To Do.

Sounds awful. Presumably you and the other people who witnessed this made a statement to police about what you saw?

A few thoughts on this sort of thing:

(1) Anyone who kicks someone in the head should be charged with murder should they die. It is an act that is intended to seriously harm the victim and their death is an entirely foreseeable outcome. I think its totally unreasonable that the attacker can argue in their defence that they didn’t intend to kill.
(2) The job of bouncers is to remove troublemakers from the situation to prevent further trouble. It is not to escalate the situation or take revenge on someone who has insulted them or whatever (to challenge their steroid atrophied manhood). If bouncers have done what #4 says they should be removed from the bouncing profession.
(3) If an establishment can’t control its apes (I mean bouncers) they should be delicensed.

No doubt the CCTV will be found to have malfunctioned at that time, as is so often the case.

(By the way it’s “witnesses”).

Lets hope the footage is intact.The premises owns the equipment. The premises employs to bouncers.

I hope that whatever the guys were doing was worthy of the beating they were given. I doubt it though.
