Kev1962 saidThe victim did the right thing trying to help another person. Unfortunately he got beaten. Also was a 3 on 1 fight. I'd suggest everyone get some self defense/martial arts training. Most of the big gym chains have free classes as do the YMCA and such organizations. The classes are fun (so I am told) and a bit of a work out. There are several styles of self defense that are not the aggressive sort but defensive and geared toward disabling your attacker long enough to get away from them. Although not for everyone I have a concealed carry permit and did take a class put on by an ex-special forces dude on how to maintain control and possession of the weapon in a struggle. I also was given a brick bat and a telescoping brass wand by a couple retired cop friends and shown how to use them. Both are considered concealed weapons (as are brass knuckles) but I refuse to be someone else's victim.
RowBuddy saidWow. That whole area of the Red Line is a fairly gay friendly zone. But seeing as the guys doing the beating were from Evanston they might have been rich boys coming back from Lincoln Park/Wrigglyville and wasted. Evanston is the very affluent area of just North of Chicago where Northwestern University is.
