A SERIOUS failure of the victim selection process

Two thugs who attacked what they thought were a pair of transvestites picked on the wrong men - when their intended victims turned out to be cage fighters on a night out in fancy dress.
...
The cage fighters were then seen teetering away in their high heels, stopping only to pick up a clutch bag they dropped during the melee.

Gardener and Fender were left dazed and seen staggering to their feet after their failed attack
.
Probably lucky; they didn't get finished off.

DAMN.

Firehand, I had just said, "What if...it's a boy and he hates basketball, but loves my high heels?"

Then I read this and WOW. Just. WOW.

They should've snapped their necks.

Another one was on today's local newspaper: a group of Somali pirates tried to attack a French warship. They ran when they got returning fire. The ship gave chase and one of the two pirate boats was captured.

I shouldn't have looked at the comments section, though. The first one showed some sense, it was a rather dry question: 'so the pirates ran when they found out the ship was armed. Maybe a hint about how to stop piracy?' Pretty much everyone else after that wrote about how impossible it would be to arm commercial ships, how guns alone never solve anything, how it would make more sense to go after the reason for piracy in Somalia (they are so poor), and what would things be like if everybody on high seas was armed, good heavens!

I think my blood pressure just spiked.

Oh yes, there was one fun comment, a suggestion for foreign aid: send picture books of the ships of different navies of the world to those areas of Somalia where the pirates have their headquarters.

A friend of about 20 years, was called Geoffry when we met, and is now called Julie- told a story

While still physically male, had been in a pub with other errr people with simillar errr interests...

A bunch of young thugs had broken the pub windows with hammers and a couple of the little fools ran into the pub.

The muscly leather queens at the bar all fled, but on of the transvestites (who looks like a rugby player) launched himself accross the room and landed on top of a thug, whose accomplice fled.

The big tranny then sat on the thug until the police arrived to arrest him (hate crimes etc - taken very seriously).

I wonder if Britain had legal CCWs whether the thugs would have even broken the windows?

Even in the mid '90s Britain had more than twice the rate of assaults and muggings that the US had, and the figure have diverged further since then.

oh yes, the tranny giving his real name to the cops had been a great source of amusement to all present.
