Assault On Korean Public Bus...

Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:13 pm

A couple of my Korean friends just showed this to me... cultural misunderstandings, and sadly this is not the first time; this has happened in China and other places.

. cultural misunderstandings,

Seems to me like the guy being a prick rather than a cultural misunderstanding. You would think people in a foreign country would behave themselves....

This isn't a cultural misunderstanding. People like that thug ooze tastelessness beyond belief worldwide. Hope he got to experience what Korean slammers are like.

I hate this stupid kind of ghetto mentality... everything is a confrontation, care all about their "pride," being total a-holes, etc.....
Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)

According to some news articles I've read about this, he lives there, teaching ESL.

Kind of seems like a cliche, but apparently he was talking loudly on the phone, and the older Korean gentlemen told him to shut up (in English). Afterwards, he thought he heard a racial slur from the same guy, but it turned out to be a Korean word that sounded similar. That's when the assault began.

The bus driver took the bus to the police station, where he got arrested and released only an hour later after some questioning, causing much rage amongst the online Korean community.

So why didn't all the people standing around try to restrain him? Obviously the guy is outnumbered, and no one is helping that old man and woman.

What a disgrace to the human species.
