    ive just woken up after one of the most messy nites out ever. i went
    down to kingston with about 8 friends and only 3 of us made it back
    without going via hospital.



    just before the club shut i lost all my mates except
    1 guy. so we went and got sum munch and caught a bus. when the bus got
    to where we wanted to get off a massive fight broke out between about
    15 asains and about the same number of white ppl. any way no-one i knew
    was involved so i jumped down the stairs and got off the bus (the
    fighting was in the street by now too).



    so anyway i look round and my mate was stuck on the bus so i have to go
    back through all this fighting (the asains were using their belts as
    weapons) i kept getting hit and shit but i was too drunk so it didnt
    hurt and i didnt wanna retaliate cuz it just wasnt my fite. so i
    managed to get to him and help him outta the bus and onto the street.
    by this time the fighting had left a few casualties on the ground and
    the asians seemed to be winning so we made our way back to mine for sum
    spliff.



    when i got back i found out the reason why i lost my
    mates. they had got in a fight with sum rudeboys outside the club and
    were completely done over. i seen them when they got back at 7 am from
    hospital, black eyes, lumps on heads etc. in a way they are lucky cuz
    it couldve been alot worse.



    there is a point to this post. basically i have
    noticed that there seems to be far more alcohol induced fights/violence
    when the weather has been hot ( as it has been here for the past week
    or so). im not a violent person but i managed to get in 3 big fights in
    2 weeks last summer for example.



    has anyone else noticed a link between hot weather and violence?

    In my area there is a firework show every summer, I have noticed that this is the most violent week with all the different groups of people gathering in one place alway seems to bring the most violent people looking to get into fights. So yeah I do see the link!

    i have noticed a similar phenomenon but i think its not the heat but
    more that high schools/colleges are not in session so people are
    partying harder and also dont have much to do so they get hammered and
    start fights. one question: in the UK when you guys say "asians" do you
    mean just east asians like chinese/japanese/korea whatever or all of it
    like indians and arabians and such. i remember i was once talking to my
    english cousin and we were talking about demographics and i said that
    there are tons of asians in san francisco (i live close to there) and
    he was like "there are not tons of asians in the states, there are tons
    of asians in england. my neighborhood looks like fucking baghdad" this
    struck me as odd because when we say asians over here we are generally
    talking about east asia. i mean baghdad is in asia but we usually say
    arabs or sometihng...no racism intended here i was just curious about
    the language. also my cousin is always talking about rude boys, are
    they some kind of jamaican gangsters or something?

    ^^^ Hmmmmm...interesting question. Here in Minny I have never
    heard indians, arabs, etc. refered to as asians. It seems to me
    that you would need to specify (arabic, indian, asian, russian, etc.)
    considering Asia is so fucking big.

    Yeah, here in SD 'asians' pretty much goes for any of the east
    asians. While the arabs and iraquis and such are
    middle-easterners.

    <DIV>By rudeboys he means either the black, middle class teens who claim to be 'ghetto' and feel that they need to start fights with everyone who looks at them the wrong way, or Chavs, the white trash of the UK - se www.chavscum.co.uk</DIV>

    in midwest asians account for most of the major shipments of weed, meth, x. the azn puring into minneapolis/st. paul are krazy. we have so many differnt areas where theres 100% asian dominated. n the fightin is unbelievable. 10 on 1, 20 on 5 whatever no matter tha place, I was in a fight inside the grocerary store. people jus need to chill n quit starting fights over little shit. because pretty soon a little fight will leave someone deadR.I.P. SF D.H. n all my other hommies who died for no reasonEdited by: pancho
