back to article Welsh yobs clobbered by cross-dressing cage fighters

Two Swansea yobs who decided, after a night on the sauce, that they'd give a couple of transvestites some stick, came off the worse for the encounter since their targets were in fact cage fighters on a stag night. The humiliation of Jason Fender, 22, and Dean Gardener, 19, was captured on CCTV as they "singled out the two men …

    Always great to see scum picking on the wrong people - saw this plastered all over the front page of the London Metro this morning, and I smiled all the way to work. I'm doubly glad that news outlets are giving out the names of the dirty little miscreants - I sincerely hope they remain a laughing stock for the remainder of their miserable and pathetic lives.

    Vote-winning idea

    If ever a political party was looking for a vote-winner, this is it.

    Tackle violent crime by disguising cage fighters as old ladies, traffic wardens, small children and other popular victim groups.

    Would-be miscreants would never quite be sure what they were dealing with, once a few of them had been laid out with a nifty couple of jabs.

    Bullys always pick on the weak

    This reminds me of someone called "Bob".

    Bob was a Karate expert and amateur boxing champ who had a bad bike crash and was on crutches.

    Bob was hopping past a pub when a yobbo calls out some cripple related insult.

    Bob and yobbo walk towards the middle of the road.

    When 4ft. apart Bob punches yobbo on the nose with the rubber foot of the crutch.

    Ah, the IT Angle

    Of course, some of us who work in IT like to do a bit of MMA training or something similar as a break from being stuck in front of a keyboard (but not necessarily in drag), and it was partly due to martial arts in computer games that I got into doing them for real. As well as being a pretty good way to keep fit there is a bit of an overlap between the skills you need for programming and for setting up a submission. Doing something like a choke hold or a joint lock is more about planning and sequencing moves than just brute strength.

    Lucky, lucky, lucky

    Considering it was an outing for a bunch of cage fighters the lads got off lightly. You don't hit people trained in mixed martial arts and expect them to cry.

    They were treated like boisterous puppies - given a slap and told to stay down.

    What was telling was the way the 'girls' walked off as if nothing had happened, they didn't seem too upset by it - if they had been it looked like there were quite a few 'ladies' out on the stag do. The cops would have needed a shovel.

    Quite impressed at cage-fighter tart that twatted both the yobbos in the throat while his female (?) accomplice took one on the chin as a distraction. It is nigh on impossible to be 'hard' when you're choking on your own spittle, tongue, larynx and anything else that happened to be in your gullet when the strike hits home. As the local fuckwit and his mate soon found out.

    A joy to behold indeed, and very nice to see the cage-fighters putting their particular talents to practical use. Three hours later and I'm still giggling like a schoolgirl (an unpleasant sight I can assure you).

    Ignoring Carl completely as a single voice of dissent - perhaps he is a frustrated cage-fighter wannabe. This a superb article to publish and to hell with the IT angle. IT would have done the 'girls' no bloody use at all.

    And, indeed, Ha.

    But on a serious point we have yet another case where the plea in mitigation is that the defendents were drunk. There are very few places outside the UK where drunkeness is considered to lead to violence. To suggest that it does in many countries will get you laughed at. Secondly there is no way this should be accepted as a plea in mitigation.

    IF you believe that alcohol consumption leads to violence (and I don't believe it does) then you should not be allowed to use this in a plea of mitigation, since you believe that alcohol breeds violence then in drinking to excess you are admitting the possibility that you may commit a violent act. It would be like submitting as a plea in mitigation the fact that you had been drinking heavilly before you drove your car into a bus queue. Nobody would do that, so why is it used an excuse for violent crime.

    If however you don't believe that alcohol consumption leads to violence then you would not enter such a plea. Either way it's no go.

    Lets be entirely fair alcohol is used as an excuse. Thugs generally consider a good night out to be too much alcohol followed by violence. They can then blame the alcohol for their violent behaviour.

    The law needs to make up it's mind. Either alcohol breeds violence in which case admitting to drinking heavilly before comitting a violent crime should lead to a increase in sentence, not the currently hope for reduction; or it doesn't in which case the plea is pointless.

  73. Grease Monkey

    Have you noticed...

    ...the way they don't appear to be particularly drunk until after they've been slotted. Certainly not several jugs of cocktails and ten pints of cider drunk. So the "we only done it 'cos we was pissed" excuse is probably crap. In my experience most neds grossly exaggerate the amount they have drunk anyway. More than likely trying to save a bit of face as in "I'd have 'ad 'im if I 'adn't drunk ten pints." Whereas the apparent drunkeness later in the video is probably down to a little mild concussion.

    The crazy thing is ...

    ... if we all collectively stood our ground and twatted the half-brain neanderthals that stalk our streets at night then there would be no continual problem at all. Where the idiots win is when we all stand back and look on, taking no action, mostly because we fear the law will come down on us rather than the perps.

    It is really heartwarming to not only read about this but for the official video to go out into the wild for all to see the comeuppance occur.

    And before some bleeding heart liberal pipes up about the need to understand these in-breeds, let me just say that this kind of person does not need understanding. It is their victims that need understanding - the perps need some good old fashioned, but much needed, punishment. Then maybe *they* will develop the understanding that they cannot behave so mindlessly and selfishly.

    I don't have the two mixed up, but "Not to advocate self-defence, but self defence rocks" sounds vastly less amusing to me than what I originally posted (and I do post for my own amusement, I gave up trying to amuse Ms Bee a while ago - I'm just not that witty).

    That being said, if our Dear Moderatrix wishes to provide a one-to-one vocabulary session (bring a dictionary!), I'm game.

    Now I'm off to find out what all those wordy things wot she wrote in her post mean....

    once the yobs have been subdued!

    Sorry to be picky but it said "wrestling team sport Kabaddi"

    As a student we used to watch this on Channel Four on Sunday.

    Never call it wrestling myself.

    Lets just hope it was the Indian Army team not the railway workers

    If the chavs tried to press charges shouldnt they also be charged with wasting police time ?

    I saw both of these in the Sun yesterday and loved every minute of both. It's great to see the yobby bastards start on the wrong person, you always pray for it to happen and then it does! Twice!

    And that's just one of the things the Coppers just don't get. The vast majority of people are happy with the sort of 'justice' handed out by the cage fighters.

    The Police (when they can be bothered to turn up) have to be so politically correct they arrest the wrong people. In the end, it is the Police themselves who invite 'vigilante justice'.

    @VoodooTrucker - Beer on me

    Beer on you? No way....maybe beer on the Moderatrix and she can make us lick it off.

    Yeah, that's it.

    Guf War Vet

    As a quick follow on from the last one, the guy in the previous story I mentioned is doing something retarded to the max.

    The Yobbo prick hurled threatening abuse at a relative stranger for no reason other than to look 'hard' and was put down, quickly and with utter precision from a Gulf War vet with 2 black belts...He becomes an overnight laughing stock as youtube goes gaga for the footage, the Sun (and other papers) cotton on and print the story...and now the prick is trying to sue the Sun for 'humiliating' him!

    Of all the most pathetic, self-rightous, pointless things to do...

    Top marks to the Welsh Police

    For once they did the right thing and nick the plonkers, rather that arresting the cage fighters for all crimes like being too tall, in possesion of a splendid pair of biceps, soliciting, being armed and danerous (sorry for that one), Heres to natural justice the Darwinian way

    "As well as being a pretty good way to keep fit there is a bit of an overlap between the skills you need for programming and for setting up a submission. Doing something like a choke hold or a joint lock is more about planning and sequencing moves than just brute strength."

    Not to mention that the skills etc come in very handy when yet one more user asks stupid questions - e.g. why scrolling down in Excel doesn't take them to the "next page"... (yes, I have been asked that one before!)
