A video at World Star Hip Hop entitled "Bullying Gone Wrong: Woman Picks On the Wrong One in Los Angeles Blue Line Train" shows the unrelenting assault of a woman on the blue train in Los Angeles.
But as I began watching it, I kept waiting for the "bully" to have it go wrong because the way this bully was beating on the poor woman, I had no idea how it could possibly get turned around.
Turns out, the bully was the one getting beaten.
From the description:
"So what happened before the fight was that this crazy lady in the red jacket was trying to bully an innocent lady on train for some reason, that no one knows....But in the innocent lady's defense someone on the train showed the crazy lady what bullying was about...Suddenly the crazy lady was no longer about that life" - @JDotMoore
Well yeah, cause getting relentlessly beaten with no end in sight can certainly make one malleable can't it? (Think about how the victims of domestic abuse learn quite well how quietly to tip-toe and do as they're told.)
Now there's not necessarily any doubt in my mind that red jacket person girl [woman?] was bullying people, based on how the video opened which, to me, looked as if she was trying to block someone's passage.
But the black jacket girl [woman?] beat, slapped, punched the red jacket girl so hard, so often, and so relentlessly, I have a hard time with the whole "Bullying Gone Wrong" angle.
To me, it looks like bullying went exactly right.
Black jacket woman was angry, maybe triggered from past trauma or memories of herself being bullied, and felt as if she had a righteous or acceptable target for her anger, maybe? She turned into the bigger bully, perhaps? Right before she hurled the lesser bully off the train.
What do you think? Is sometimes being a patently abusive Bigger Bully necessary? If so, did black jacket woman go too far?
