Assault on 13 Bus

Appalling assault on the 13 Bus the other day.

https://www.google.ie/amp/s/amp.inde...-37907447.html

What the f is wrong with people. The initial reports claimed the victim had tried to steal a phone, now it seems like he was being filmed asleep and a row ensued. Speculation aside did he deserve to be trashed within an inch of his life 3 on 1? On public transport?

Well from what it appears there is more to this story than meets the eye. It's easy to judge from the comfort of our armchairs.

The only judgement I’m making is the violent assault that was carried out, well over the top. 5 headbutts, 6 punches and that was before he was dragged off and beaten by three men. That’s the mentality I’m questioning here.

Apparently the bloke had nicked a phone off a 15 year old girl. He seems to have form for this so people got sick of him and gave him a few boxes.

See that’s what’s doing the rounds. There’s other footage of him asleep prior to the assault. He was being filmed and wasn’t happy when he woke. That’s what sparked it. The guy is fighting for his life so it was more than a few slaps.

Then you also heard he threw himself under the bus after he was chucked off?

Where did you hear he was fighting for his life?

one story says he's a robbing junkie
another says he's a junkie that a teenage girl wasnt afraid to throw a phone in the face of while he was asleep.

Im more willing to believe a junkie robbed a phone, but sure we'll see what happens.
