Caught this video via the folks at Active Self Protection.

I want you to notice how the rage peaks and dips. One moment they are all in  after a guy and then the rage ebbs down as if it was recharging to go after the victim again. The peak will last longer if the victim does not hit back and the attack becomes a frenzy of punches and kicks. The mob flows around obstacles and envelopes the cornered victim like it was some 1950’s Sci Fi monster let loose.

One of the reasons I gave up going to places like that is because I got to see more than a share of drunken people  suddenly turning a nice night out into a gladiator contest. In one occasion, it ended up with machetes drawn and I ended up climbing the roof of a tiki hut to avoid damage.

Do notice how women also get involved. Not at the same level of men, but throwing pool balls do constitute a danger to people. Do not dismiss the “Weak” Sex!

A fight with a drunken and determined mob is almost impossible to win, and I mean win in the most ample of ways. Even if you manage to draw a weapon, use it and save your life, you will, more than likely end up arrested while a pile of drunks will swear on a stack of bibles it was you who attacked them while they were discussing peacefully and innocently the latest tweets of Greta Thunberg.  Never count on video to save your ass.

If a mob breaks out in a fight, bet out of the way and head for an exit being as unthreatening as possible.  You do not need to stay and watch who win or who loses nor you have a responsibility to be a good guy and play peace keeper.  Simply get out before some drunk fool decided you should be part of the night’s festivities.

  1. Absolutely great advice. Back when I was still a party animal my goal was to be in a different bar 15 minutes before the fight broke out hoisting a cold beer and eying the possibles.

  2. All it takes is that one unlucky punch, pool ball, or chair; and you or your significant other is on a slab at the morgue.

    Exit quickly. You can always pay your tab the next day.

  3. Yup. Exellent advice. I had an ex who always got mad when I wouldnt go out to bars. Nothing good ever comes from bars.

  4. First of all, pool balls hurt. And, when they are deliberately thrown (instead of just smacking a knuckle when you are racking them up.) they hurt even more.

    Next, avoid bars like that. Actually, avoid bars in general. Restaurants that also show the game, and serve drinks is one thing, but places where the activity is consuming alcohol are frankly… dangerous.

    And… no. Just because they have the game on, or there is a pool table does not mean the purpose of the establishment is anything other than allowing people to get drunk. There is a big difference between catching the game and a few appetizers at Fridays than hitting Van’s Dive Bar with the intent of getting drunk.

    Finally, drunk people are a-holes. For every fun drunk, there are a dozen mean angry drunks.
