Re: Has any one threaten to beat you up in public?
I also got the nickname 'fists of fury' at college.
Myself and a mate lived close to town and used to walk home, one night we were walking about 3am being followed by 8 or so lads about our age. (I should say at this point that my mates nickname became Zangief or street fighter after this and a few similar incidents).
So anyway, they started throwing coins and stones and shouting shit. My mate didn't hesitate and turned and stopped, I was confused and was like mate shall we just carry on home? He started walking to them...long story short. 2 of them ran off the way they came, 2 skulked off down an alleyway and the other 4 approached us...we battered them, the highlight is my mate grabbing two of them round the neck and head butting them both. Amazing!
I got home with blood pouring out of my right eye and my hand was fucked. I woke my mum up and she wanted to call the police. I said not to as there were 4 lads in a worse state than us. (It was kind of self-defence but it could have been avoided).
I don't condone violence unless it's necessary or sport.
