Just witnessed female on female violence :-O

I am kind of shaken as I never thought teenage girls in Swissy could dish out so much violence! I, another woman and a guy broke it up but I will be honest it took few seconds longer for me to react as I was taken aback by the ferocity of the punch combinations and kicks being dished out by a feminine looking girl on another slightly rough looking girl.

The feminine looking girl was dishing it all out. I really wanted to shout at here afterwards and ask her where all this aggression was coming from but the last thing I wanted was to get set upon by whole group of teenagers

As always majority were frozen spectators So watch out everyone some psycho people about even in Swissy. I seem to be a fight magnet, this is like the 10th fight I have seen.

Re: Just witnessed female on female violence :-O

From the Bro Code:

28) A Bro will, in a timely manner, alert his Bro to the existence of a fight between two fellow human beings of the female variety. If an informed bro is unable to witness the fight first hand, a spotter bro is responsible for documenting and relating details of girl fight via pictures, video or, barring any other reasonable method, interpretive dance and/or pantomime.

Shocking really. And yet a nightly occurence in most UK cities, sadly.
Nice that here it is a shock rather than just normality.

Well down Panda for helping to break it up. Again, in the UK most people would hesitate to get involved, again, sadly.

My missus and I (she's German) had considered a few times to move back over to Blighty but things like this get her (and me, to be honest) quite worked up. What ever happened to a normal, socialable culture?

One can't blame them though, even I would think twice in UK. Girls there are worse than men

I am a joker in general but this kind of stuff really makes me sad and gets me down. My woman would have no chance against thugs like these.

I hate going outside Switzerland the older I get and I HATE HATE HATE going to UK. I have witnessed a gradual decline of things in Switzerland. Nothing like UK but a decline none the less.

It saddens me to say as a foreigner that most of the violence I have witnessed here has been from people of foreign origin.

I'm afraid that this statement could also be applied to most of the Western countries. A very sorry state of affairs but quite commonly true.

I don't really want to start a discussion about that right now but will admit that the Brits in general do have more of a tendance nowadays to become violent while drinking. Not all of course but there is a dire problem with binge drinking...

Re: Just witnessed female on female violence :-O

Whoa, you got involved? What if one of them pulled a knife or a gun?

This will be controversial, but for me, I would call the police. I don't know what the laws are here, but I know in Canada you can actually get an assault charge for laying a hand on someone, even if only to restrain them.

I was once attacked by another woman in a metro station ( not Switzerland) on my way to work one day. I was extremely grateful for the unknown man who hauled her off me, without any thought as to whether my attacker was carry any weapon.

Re: Just witnessed female on female violence :-O

Wow, a lot of UK hate in this thread for an incident that apparently happened here in Switzerland.

Just want to put in a reminder that the UK is quite large and has a large population, so please don't judge the whole country by the standards of the part you personally come from.

I come from the Cotswolds, and something like this is (broad day light punch up in the street) is extremely rare (never heard of or witnessed it myself). If I wasn't from the UK was and reading this thread I would assume a visit to anywhere in the UK would be like something out of a Wild West film.

Did it ever exist in the first place? People have been fighting as long as people has existed. People will always fight.

Re: Just witnessed female on female violence :-O

Aagh well, the Cotswolds. Just love it there and know it so well. We did witness a massive drunken brawl in Stow late one Saturday night though, and it weren't pretty. Not quite like inner City Nottingham or Leicester, is it? I still love the UK, always will be a part of my heart there for so many reasons. We still have a flat there (small market town- cute, but still a lot of binge drinking with related behaviour at week-ends) and would have no problem moving back there.
However - what triggered me to mention it, is that the OP was shocked and surprised - as the event is so rare here - whereas it is not in a large part of UK now - sadly. I love England - still and always.

I grew up in Lower Swell, about a mile from Stow (if we are talking about Stow on the Wold ). The fight didn't happen at the time of the horse fair did it? That is the single time of the year I can remember any trouble.

I'd say that drunken late night brawls are something that happen pretty much in any country that allows late night drinking. I made the assumption that the OP saw something in the middle of the day. Maybe that was an incorrect assumption.

In terms of violence though, Switzerland (Zurich area) is really no better than most of Europe. I've seen a kid kicking and punching a stranger on the number 4 tram in Zurich (the guy and another handled him). I've been caught up in the middle of a massive crowd fight at a Rapperswil-Jona vs Ambri ice hockey game. I've also been seen fights at train stations around Zurich, mostly to do with Ice hockey or football. I deliberately worked from home on the 1st of May rather than travel in to Zurich.

I have seen more violence in 11 years of living in the Zurich area of Switzerland than I did in the same period of time living in the Cotswolds. I haven't lived in any of the large UK cities so I really can't comment on the level of violence there. I just dislike where I come from being tarred with the same brush.
