At a surf event in front the public and family's it is a disgrace

 

Yes.  Its a disgrace anywhere. Its a disgrace for the 5 individuals with bats, anywhere, anytime.  but not something we should bash a country for or the province of Mindanao for, or a race of people for.  Need I quote all the posts I mean or can you read them yourself?

 

Hmm.  Since you did not read them the first time I better quote the haters:

 

 

The Philippines is a notoriously dangerous country

(Note this one is unclear if its the poster's opinion or if he is quoting someone else)

 

 

 

Mindanao is kinda rough around the edges

 

 

 

the behaviour by the locals was worse than whatever he done

(All the locals or just 5 guys?)

 

So no, I am not defending the actions of the 5 guys.  Just calling a pack of wolves a pack of wolves.  Carry on.

Whoever said that fights have to be fair? I think they were telling him he was no longer welcome in town, and it appears that he got the message.

 

Now, someone should go let those thin skinned assholes know what it's like to out number someone in a fight. 

 

Fight them the way they fight - like pussies.

 

A little money to someone in jail would work as well, to give them a bit of a lesson.

Wait. This is what I read: 

 

 

was brutally attacked in knee-deep water by locals wielding bats and bottles after he accidentally drifted too close to their surf break on Monday while watching trials ahead of the Siargao Cloud 9 Surfing Cup from the water.

 

So, because he drifted over, he deserved to have the shit beaten out of him by five (5) other men? Bullshit.

Where I come from, we would call it knee-capping those thugs. Not something they would soon forget.

could someone explain why what he did was a bad thing? and why was it so bad that some are not surprised by the locals reaction to it?
