I wish I were 30 years younger, then I would have kicked this thug-boy's ass downtown last night..
After the Canuck's game I was waiting for the bus at Cordova and Abbot. There was a small crowd of people waiting for the bus, mostly women, a couple of guys and three late teen guys who spoke broken English.
One of the three was signing and laughing in a low tone and he made his friends laugh. Just then, some thick headed thug boy appeared walking a white bike. He had a hoodie pulled up and a baseball cap on and looked stone faced. He starred right at the kid who was laughing without smiling. After a couple of second he called the young guy a faggot and punched him in the face for no reason. The kid wasn't violent. He looked scared and never fought back. This only egged the gorilla on more and he hit the kid again. Thug boy rode away on his bike but came back a minute later and did the same thing again.
If this guy was tough, then why is he pic kind on a kid that won't fight, but moreover why wasn't he on Hastings Street a block over looking for a fight? I'm sure there's plenty of takers. No, instead, he's picking on a kid who an barely speak English.
I couldn't help the kid. I'm an old man. All I could do was be a witness if it came to that. Of course, the cops drove by after it was all over.
I fet bad for that kid, and I felt nothing but contempt for street thug boy. Go to jail thug boy. You'll find al the fights you want in there. Scumbag.
