Shocking??? Just a minor fist fight. I don't know that I would even call it road rage. Just a minor altercation, no weapons involved.

Can hands be considered deadly weapons?
Hands, feet, teeth, can all be considered deadly weapons. The way in which they are intended to be used plays a part in all of this, but if an item is used in a manner to cause serious bodily injury, then it can be a deadly weapon.
Especially when used by 'steroid addicted' brainless idiots.

Exactly how anyone can conclude that the fat man is not at fault is beyond me.  The fat guy is the one who approached the black car, probably with the intent of assault and battery until he caught a look at who was inside.  In all probability, he would have been FAR more aggressive if the individual IN the car had been smaller than him.  We cannot tell what was said, but it appears that just before fat man leaves, he pokes inside the car, angering the occupant, who only then emerges.  They exchange shoves and the guy in the tank top hits fat man very few times.  He connects with one good punch.  It's not like he gave the guy a pounding after subduing him.  The guy can punch, what can I say?  Fat man should know better than to pick fights.  I say this is a walk-away with no fault.  Watching this, the part that angers me more than any other is the Thais who decide to interfere in what was a fair fight.  Cowards big time.  Anyone can see that tank top guy did not go overboard.  Like I said, the guy simply knows how to deliver a punch, and fat man took a risk with the wrong guy.

The Thais did exactly the right thing by blocking the car from leaving so he police can come and sort it out. Too many people forget this is Thailand...your are not in Los Angeles or London or any Western country where things may get handled differently.

Foreigners bring their bad manners and anger to LOS in increasing numbers and those of us permanent here are sick of it. I don't care who may have been drinking; who may have used steroids or anything else. The police will most likely fine both parties as they are both at fault. However, the person throwing the punch committed assault and battery and he should be paying compensation to the man he struck. Both face the potential of getting deported.

Was this all worth it......given the potential of police action; potential jail and fines as well as Immigration involvement. Foreigners need to control themselves. Your not at home. You are in Thailand and you are not in charge of anything except your own behavior.

Agreed. You approach anyone aggressively, expect an aggressive response.

Exactly, where does common sense prevail here?

 

Keep your head down, mind your manners, don't over react to anything, smile a lot and enjoy the weather Lol

A couple of idiots meet to provide us with some early tv entertainment.

He had a swing, whether at the car or the person is beside the point. Don't escalate a verbal argument with violence/the threat of violence unless you're prepared to back it up.

Have to agree with this: "Don't escalate a verbal argument with violence or threat of violence unless you're prepared to back it up" ... Mistakes and tempers by *both* men created this situation. But I don't by default side w man who took the worse of the exchange as he initiated and then "escalated" when it may not have been called for ... Exception would be if he was protecting some 'innocent' from harm (e.g. if tall man had almost ran over his kid), but that's not likely the case here. Just tempers + testosterone. Man who took the beating could (IMO should) have de-escalted by walking away after making his point ... but he chose instead to slap the door in a 'one upsmanship' act ... May seem like a trivial act ... but it was definitely an escalation and a mistake. If you're not fully prepared and justified (which is rare) to do battle, always best to keep your cool and de-escalate.

What's happened has happened and the government should be looking at ways to reduce such incidents. As someone else suggested, a certain coloured shirt could be worn so as to let people know not to soak them - I'd go one step further and have some government sanctioned style day glow yellow vest.

I don't think anyone concluded that the "fat man" was not at fault.       Quote, " I say this is a walk away with no fault.    .......Thais who decided to interfere in what was a fair fight!"    Fair fight!!!   Did you even bother to look at the video?        Conclusion:   The "fat man" was wrong but his beating at the hands of the "big guy" was far to excessive.
