`Happy slap' yobs breed fear, anger

Watch out for \"happy slapping,\" the latest youth craze to sweep Britain.

It's not a new dance step or even a new designer drug. It's a criminal assault...

That is really disturbing! I can't believe that people are stooping to violence for entertainment's sake.

I'm convinced this kind of anti-social behaviour is caused by massive ammounts of people living in big citys where people become disposable. That's why I don't like citys, I've seen it here in Ireland with the population spurt that the Celitic tiger brought. Nobody cares anymore, everyones a stranger that you don't care about and don't want to get involved with.

Yet we're all still squezed into smaller spaces.

Jesus christ. Raping an 11-year-old girl and filming it?

I agree, unfortunately this is nothing new. Shit like this has been happening over here-- maybe minus the video cameras in most cases-- for a looonnng time.

If you see someone getting 'happy slapped', I recomend that you and anyone you are with start happy slapping the happy slappers. Give them a taste of their own medicine.

Well all it really takes is one to think it up, then they tell a few and next thing you know they tell a few. Sure it might be 15 kids starting this BS but you add in one poorly designed webpage just to get attention and now you have worldwide coverage. From there people make copy cat type sites and by the time that it works it way up high enough to authorities it is already a big "underground" sensation.

The only happy kind of slapping there is is the salami variety...
