Hi all,

For all Brits out there, did anyone happen to see Tonight with Trevor McDonald last night regarding "Happy Slapping"? I saw it, and I had never realised it was such a phenomenon amongst the chavs!
For those who don't know what "Happy Slapping" is, it is when someone randomly hits someone else, and records it on their mobile phone. They hit absolutely anybody, from someone sitting on a train minding their own business, to someone answering their own front door. One video that was shown last night, showed a guy who was sleeping on the floor, and someone set fire to him and recorded it!! Luckily the poor guy survived, and he appeared on the programme to tell about his experience. I just don't know how someone (even a chav) could do something like that!!  Angry

I have had it done to me before, as I came out of a shop and walked back to my car. I didn't say anything nor did I look at the chavs, but one of them decided to hit me! Then they followed me to my car, I got in, locked myself in my car and drove off rather (very) quickly.

Has anybody else had this done to them? If so, what exactly happened? I'm just interested to see how many people have been affected before!

I was flicking through the channels last night and saw a bit about that. I've never actually heard of it before! I say that now... It'll probably happen to me tomorrow  Wink

That's something that can only happen in England. If someone tried to pull that in the USA they would be shot. If I were a violent person I would literally send that person to a hospital because of the beating they would receive.

I hope every little punk in England that pulls that gets gruesomely tortured and murdered. They deserve it.

I'm fortunate not to have it done to me yet (touch wood it does not happen) one of the many reasons I dont go out much..

I once saw a report about happy slapping but instead it was of a group of chavs beating up a small 7 year old after school... Horrible horrible people out there....

Sorry to hear they got you  Sad

Kind of weird that some of you haven't heard of happy slapping here in the U.S. it has been in the news for the past couple of days. It was shown on the cable news networks. The local tv networks here showed footage of it.

Yeah don't try happy slapping in the U.S. cuz you will either end up with broken nose, jail time, and a lawsuit.

Sorry to hear you got happy slapped  frown . I hope you are doing ok, you kept calm.

I think there is rather the chance that the perpetrator will end up in hospital. I don�t see anybody around here just letting himself be slapped.

True Jan, unfortunately it is done totally by surprise and therefore it's hard to stop yourself being hit.

Another story last night on the programme was of a man who now has a hearing impediment (although that is probably extremely rare).

Some chavs tried it on John Prescott the other week! His security turned up rapidly and they disappeared quickly, it was apparently at a motorway service station somewhere.

Or the morgue. That situation could escalate rather quickly.

Recently heard about somebody reportedly being 'happy slapped' around the head with a traffic cone. There are some right idiots around. Off with their hands, I say...  bomb

If you stop being pussies, maybe these chumps will think twice about doing this. By allowing it to go on without a fight or retaliation, you are contributing to the problem.

Depending on the neighbourhood the "happy slapper" might just get his teeth knocked in or a knife between his ribs. I had one idiot try this game on me some years ago  mad  and I broke his nose, just out of reflex (I didn´t even think about it, a split second after his hand made contact with my cheek my left fist made contact with his nose). This teenage punk didn´t expect such a reaction from an old git like me!  devil

Here in L.A., it seems to have evolved into "happy shooting."

If some Chav gang tries it on me i'll consider it assault and thus I can then defend myself and give the Chav scum a good smashin in Big grin
There nothing but "gangsta" wannabes anyway, dont be intimidated by the number of them, im small and I know I can easily take 4 of them if I have to because there really "mummys boys" at the end of the day, after i finished beatin the sh.t out of them id grab the camera and smash it to bits.

Us Pussies dont walk round in massive groups looking for victims and us pussies dont carry weapons such as a nife and baseball bats not to mention there stubby rings on there fists that will bloody hurt if you punched you. You react to these chumps and you will end up the worse off.

These people will seek out the type of person who is least likely to retaliate, its all very well saying that you would put them in hospital, but then if your that type of person they probably wouldnt hit you, theyll hit a vulnerable looking housewife sitting alone on the top deck of a bus instead.

This reminds me of the 'You've Been Tangoed' phenomenon that swept the nation quite a few years back. People would go upto someone and slap their face cheeks, they had to ban the advert as a kid got his eardrum burst.

True about this. These punks definitely wouldn´t pick the 6´5", 200 lbs marine or Para.

Though i´ve heard of some chavs attacking an old guy just coming from a ceremony at the Cenotaph
in London. Only thing they failed to notice was that he was wearing his Royal Legion blazer and a Green beret... Big grin

What Kaz says is very true, I reckon. In many cases, I'm sure retaliation = relocating to a wooden box
