    • Truth is killin' me... says:

      I’d bet any money you’re right Terry and he knows why they came looking for him. He knows them for sure.

  5. Lone Wolf says:

    I agree with the above comments. I do hope the Police are NOT going to charge the victim with anything seeing as he was only defending himself. Serves the ASSailant right. He gets ZERO sympathy from me.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      WooooWeeeee!! i been waiting for this to start…messing wit da wrong Person bruh bruh~unfortunately our laws might see it differently…Defending yourself and Snapping on somebody are two different things…let’s see how it pans out…but big up to the New Govt. “Thuginator”!

      • Come Correct says:

        4 on 1, he defended himself, cuz the rest sit back and watch lol sorry gotta throw in the W&E jokes where you can. Serious though props to this guy.

        • Come Correct says:

          Probably would have been a more entertaining fight than last weekends PPV.

  6. Impressive says:

    so for guys go to beat up one guy,, the one guy beats up one of the four and the other three run away.. now that is some cowardly crap.. lol,, what next

  7. Awake says:

    Serious head injuries? Seems to me he had serious “head” injuries prior to the attack on the victim! The other three fools took off…let’s hope the victim knows who they are and will identify them. I’m sure we’ll hear shortly that these hooligans are “angry” and that’s their excuse for their actions!

    • Regina says:

      No, soon we’ll hear that the injured man “din seen nuffin” and “don know dem 3 bies.” Innit.

  8. WhistleBlower says:

    Lesson learned!!!

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      yeah right…obviously didn’t learn before…and possibly never learn again…

  9. And There's Hope says:

    Guess the assailants didn’t anticipate that happening…

  10. lol lol lol lol says:

    this is one for the history books lol dumbest and softest criminal ever. these idiots need to find a real job because crime isn’t working

  11. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    hang on… i musta missed something…..the police are seeking “witnesses”…ummm, was this guy “working” all alone, all by himself..?? seems odd…govt.sends out “crews” at least 3or4…jus sayin’

    • Daytime High-Beamer says:

      Strong point. Why else would the other three losers beat feet? W & E bies 1 losers 0-1!

    • Juice says:

      The police usually seek as many witnesses as they can because the more versions of the story they get, the more details they get and the better they can ascertain exactly what went down. One witness may have seen or remembered something that another may not have.

      • sage says:

        So why didn’t they ask for witnesses to the crash of the brand new police bike outside the National Stadium? Ok you did say “usually”.

  12. D says:

    whats done in the dark comes 2 light….hmmmm 4 people after him…..

  13. Pahhhhhhhh says:

    Serves him right! there’s No honour amongst theives!

  15. peter n says:

    The police better not charge the one attacked with anything…you have every right to protect yourself…your famiky and property by any means!!!

    • Come Correct says:

      Tell that to the man who had his house invaded by a POS with duct tape, condoms, taser and a knife. He got a conditional discharge for beating the assailants head against a wall…DPP shoulda baked him a f***in hero cake. Moral of the story, throw the pieces in the road and let the BPS make their money.

  16. kushlite says:

    Just left ya bredrin hanging? Tired bra,shouldnt go jumping people.. of course W&E would have tools lol, worked and engineered the assailant

  17. Jah bingy says:

    Di youth pick gun before they learn how to fight. Big up unuh self for holding firm amongst wolfs

  18. UFOS are coming says:

    ha ha i am for the victim i dont care what people say, he defended himself like a boss! hahahahahaha

    take that you chumps!

    i would do the same too!

  19. Shell says:

    Unfortunate but the victim has been arrested for defending himself. Spent the night in custody. Unbelievable. While the 3 of the assailants got away and their mate is in the hospital with serious head injuries. No support for him with his so called aceboys. I hope to god someone talks and they find the other 3 who ‘made good their escape’. they need to let the victim go and not be charged. Pat him on the back and say well done!

    • Huh? says:

      You really think the victim doesn’t know who these guys are?
      He probably does.
      You think that he would tell the police?
      He probably won’t.

    • N says:

      Im not surprised w/ police keeping him – thats how they act (despite circumstance)

  20. stunned... says:

    …yes it’s true that the W&E (watching and earning) have been taking too long with that piece of work…but that’s just ridiculous!

    • Though it’s humorous, it’s also true and a crying shame, “W.& E. (watching and earning)”
