i was walking downtown one night with some friends, when a large gang (20-30 people) walked up and started to pick a fight. they actualy hit me and another guy, but we didnt reactd, knowing that we get the sh*t beat out of us if we did. a few of the gang members thought that it wasnt such a good idea to get into a fight so they made their gang leave.

Later, we had met some other friends, the gang came racing around the corner, one guy screaming " ***hole, you cant touch me or any of my people! ". one of my friends ran off, me and three other guys hid to see what was gonna happen (in the heat of the moment, we were confuzed), but the friends we had met up with and one other guy stayed out in the open. the gang started beating up two guys as the rest of us ran off.

the police broke up the fight, i heard later, and neither of my friends were really hurt, but they did get punched quite a bit.

i met up with everyone before they went home, just to make sure everyone was ok, but i have a question about myself...

do you think im a pussy for running away from my two friends? one of the guys said that he would have done the same (i didnt speak to the other guy, but hes OK), but he was confuzed, but i dont know if it was the right thing to do...

thanks for any advice...

I dont agree with violence as a way of solving things, but yes, you should have stayed and at least tried to reason with them. If you ask me, you took the cowardly option.

I'm sure your buddys would rather be friends with a healthy coward than with a slightly bruised hero.

I disagree, I would want to know that a friend of mine wouldnt ditch me as soon as the going gets rough

Unless you're chuck norris, you did the right thing by hiding. I'm not sure what I would've done, it depends on which of my friends were in trouble

Pussy? no, just smart. There's no way i'd have stayed, you did the right thing.
#11
I don't know see. I understand why you did what you did but i believe that you always stand your ground with your mates regardless you get stuck in and stand by them but that's just my opinion.

Lol dude you took that seriously? What use is a friend you can't rely on?
#13
yeah 20-30 people.. no chance.. you made the smart choice!!

5 or less.. then you can deal enough pain to make it worthwhile!

I think you're a coward, for the most part. I would of stayed, the same goes for my closest of friends. Just the way I was raised...Stay and fight, regardless if you're going to get beat up. Standing your ground is sacred.

I don't know. If you'd made your friends run, then they'd not have been hurt. But then you're letting the chavs (I'm assuming chavs, because they're pack animals) win because you're scared. If you'd stood your ground however, you're letting them win by getting beaten up. I guess overall it would have been better for you all to run, because then the police resources wouldn't have been wasted. Unless some of them got arrested, in which case, you should have stood your ground and seen how many people you could have got criminal records for.
#20
well if you got more people on your side a couple knives you should fight but you used your head and left. good job, pussy.
#21
No, you made a good choice. You seriously could have been killed in a situation like that, it's not uncommon.

There's a difference between courage and stupidity. Life isn't a Bruce Lee movie, and picking a fight against an overwhelming number of people isn't bravery, it's pure idiocy.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I recall a movie by the name of 300 where the spartan Army took on 500, 000 (the movie says a million but thats not realistic at all, neither is the movie though) persians or it could be turks im not sure but ya so maybe this movie would be a good learning experience for MR. Threadstarter?

Yup, you're a pussy. Supposed to stick with your friends and not run off and leave them high and dry.

Besides, if you fought you could have evened the odds and maybe they wouldn't have had the shit kicked outta them.
#27
Yeah man, gang's of 20-30 people are well hard. that makes you a complete pussy

It is a bit badass to run from your friends, but if they are understanding, and would do the same, it's fair play.

I wouldn't have run though, because I'm so hard.

plus the fact that i run like a girl
#28
your friends got beat up and you could have helped them, but you didnt. i think that qualifies you as a pussy.

Who would win out of one SAS guy versus a gang of turkish hippies?

It's not going to be the hippies, is it?

I think you made the right decision, what would you rather be called? a cowardly pussy or a dead idiotic moron?
#33
i think you did the right thing. theres no shame in it.your friends should have done the same and that way they dont put you under pressure to help them out.

when theres like 30 people then you obviously arent going to be able to do anything and like someone said people can die in situations like that , if you get beat to the ground and the bastards started stomping on your head , they dont realise how easy it is to kill someone

I would have thrown my friends at the gang to distract them, while i ran away.

In all honesty I would have run, you have to be pretty stupid not to

"im gunna fight, eventhough i know ill lose, kuz my mommy said its the right thing to do"
stand your ground? ok, lets see....him and his friends downtown, somehow i dont think its "their" ground, your the guy who ends up on the news getting shot and people wonder why


when I was a kid in school, I got in a fight with the biggest guy in school, and I stood up to him because I was too pissed off to care, and he stood down thinking "this guy has balls"

However, this won't work against minorities with a gun, because they only care about shooting people with weapons bought with OUR money.

So what would he learn from the spartans? That you should charge in battle no matter what the odds? Is that a smart thing to do? If so, then why isn't Sparta around today?

SAS could take out the entire world thats not fair


True, but the Greek SAS (Spartans in Sandals) could take out the entire ancient world. it's just that they lost to Republican Rome because they decided that they were too hard to wear armour.
