a dude was beaten to death, look at the video a couple of times....what are some techniques or strategies that could have saved him?

i saw him after he got hit with the stick, i believe he got up to fast, so he didnt fully regain conscienesses, that left him open for a right hook, he lost all conscienceness at that point; which led to his death.

it seems to be an free for all fight (my favorites). So what he should have done, was back up to some sort of corner. never let your opponent get to your back, or u will die...as seen here Other students were getting hit with wooden sticks, but they didnt die, because they had thier guard up (no thier hands, but they were mentaly prepared for the attack).

After he got hit, he should have stayed down long enough to get some conscience going, granted, these guys will hit a man (even kill him) when he's down, but if u will just make a sloppy recover, your open to more attacks, a right hook in this case.He should have kept those hands up, looking for a safe place to fight, this was not a gang bang, it was a free for all, a little bit of fighting skill could have saved his life, it did everyone elses.

your thoughts peace over war

Instead of thinking things that'll save him in that huge fight, why not something that would stop the fight from happening in the first place?

Some of the comments on AOL are disturbing. Just goes to show that racism is more openly spoken on the internet rather than real life because people are too afraid of getting their ass kicked.

Frankly, I would've ran like hell and keep running, but if I had no choice but to fight I'd do everything in my power to get out of it. I like to fight dirty, so anything is a weapon. Shoes, backpacks, rocks, bottles, pens, bricks, teeth, nails, basically anything I can get my hands on because once I start fighting you, I'm making sure you stay down.

I'm just a really violent person.

All I have to say is, I feel sad for him.

And bullies, just bully. Thats why they're bullies. They don't have to have a reason for it.

because that would be getting into the criminal justice field about crime prevention, social control and community relations with police. We would then have to dicuss the anotomie thoery and several crime thoeries with the displacement of crime in poor areas.

and that would take 4 entire school years peace over war

blame the parents thats what most people would say, maybe schools should teach self defense, because today's worlds messed up an you need to know what you have to do in the situations.. 3 on 1 your going to win..run? you won't get far...game over

not self defense, but how to fight. If kids learn to fight, they wont feel the need to use weapons against unarmed opponents because they are scared of getting hit, or "losing". peace over war
