I don't think they could have even if they wanted to.
(I kinda had the same thought tho)
I dont know, if the two guys rushed him they might have a chance, or jumped the girl instead, plus you dont know if they had concealed weapons and just whose side is the camera man on huh? Reckon the jerk could have been filming to see his buddies "happy slap" some unsuspecting passers by.
Unfortunately the reality of the aftermath of BS like this is more likely to be like something out of The Brave One than what happened here, still, good to see what looks like some natural consequences being handed out to some low rent mutha funkers.
My point was that your point is wrong. Most people do condone violence, mothers included. Violence exists, and it is sufficient to say that humans are so incredibly competent at committing huge, sweeping violent actions, that we cannot brush the subject away lightly. We should not remain in denial, we cannot convince ourselves that violence can be ignored, neither can we resort to violence because it is simply too easy, and people are simply too capable. Instead, we work very hard to mitigate the circumstances that breed violence. It isn't enough to say that violence isn't the answer, because you and I have both reached the conclusion that violence is necessary. Rather, we can examine the circumstances, identify potential hiccups in the system which would lead to the necessity of violence, and improve the circumstances to mitigate some of these acts.
To say we condone violence is misleading. To advocate violence in lieu of mitigating circumstances and taking serious steps to resolving conflict is reprehensible, but we cannot deceive ourselves and say that violence is wrong, because it truthfully is not wrong. Rather, we can say that circumstances leading to a violent conflict could, with minimal effort, be avoided. The conflict is the culmination of so many actions, none of which need be violent, and we can do better by identifying the components of the culmination, rather than focusing on the actual conflict.
