Saskatchewan mother gets beat up by kids at a park

This popped up on my Google feed. Group of kids were bullying people at a park. This mother caught it on camera, and the kids turned their attention on her.

This behaviour obviously didn't start at this moment .. Solid parenting!

Why didn't the man video recording step in? I got no problem 'stopping' an assault by some punks especially with evidence that they were the assaulting the woman.

This is disgusting. Hope they catch the kids and they get the punishment they deserve.

This is a no win. Do nothing and she gets beat up. Fight back and you get prosecuted for assaulting kids. They should have called 911.

I was thinking the same thing. Or at least approach them while recording and then jump in if necessary. At least that way he'd have evidence that he was acting to try to save this woman. I suppose the person filming might have reason to believe that he'd be harmed if he jumped in.

This exactly is the problem.
Many years ago, I was at a shopping mall, there are 2 kids have hammer in their hand going around hitting car windows just for fun. People try to stop them, Their response: I am 10, even you call police, noting will happen to me.
AND you can't even touch me, but I can hit you with my hammer!! SO **** OFF!!

Never intervene when children are involved, it never works in your favor.

The same goes for women, if you're a man.

Keep it simple.

Not the kid's fault. The parents are to blame.

When you're on the losing end of a beating, who the F cares what's legal or not? I wish it were me they assaulted because I'd have zero zero zero problem permanently maiming these "kids" and asking forgiveness later.

That's self defense. We are talking about a bystander intervening. You are probably big enough to lift them up and restrain them without striking them. That woman was not.

Let's face it; if the man would have intervened, there would be other people (maybe one of the kids themselves) who would have filmed it, and it would have been frames as "grown man assaults/beats up kids in the park". He would never get the chance to tell his side of the story in the court of public opinion, especially if it was necessary to use force and one of the kids got injured.

I'm speaking of self defence and the video was certainly a self defence situation. Doesn't matter how big I am (and I'm not big). I'm quite sure I don't out-mass the muliple attackers in the vid, and neither does the woman. What I probably have that the woman does not is the survival intinct to snap a finger, blind an eye, smash a rock to head, whatever. They don't get a pass because they're not adults.
