 There is a good example of how not to do things right. The more modern we become the more stupidity rules our lives. So much for learning from the past.

Jesus Christ !!!!!
He's adapted that to fit in with his draconian ideas......the saying is spare the ROD Von..... whips are for caribou and horses, and wives,even you should know that.
I'm not opposed to a timely judicious physical chastisement, but it should be a last resort.

And in respect to all the other 'scenarios' lots of such events go on as the used to, only the high profile news worthy ones are known about.
But yes we are all too scare of offending sensibilities or crossing PC lines these days.

Wey aye Back on form !!!

Just read through this topic and was reminded of a number of years ago when I saw a fight between two junior school kids of about 9 or 10. I heard a noisy shouting and saw the tell tale ring of people around a fight.
These two lads were having a right good scrap. Nothing too dirty and a fair match of a fight. A woman ran over to me screaming at me asking what the hell am I doing.
I told her, watching.

She started shouting at me and said that I was an animal and should be break it up. I left with her screaming at all the kids trying to break it up. I never did get to see who won.

In Police training, and practice, up until about 1990, it was always the rule; "Helmet off, and mingle with crowd."

WHEN they have beaten the shit out of each other, they are not in a fit state to try it on with the arresting copper.

Of course, if it REALLY gets out of hand, you HAVE to go in and sort it.

But for a game of fisty cuffs on a Saturday night.... stand back and watch.
