    I'm sorry for all of the horrendous shit that happened to you, but why haven't you left that godawful shitstain of a place? I mean, one is an incident, two is a coincidence, but five is a definite pattern of abuse that, judging by the number of incidences and your location, which judging by the reference to palm trees, is in the South, suggests a community that really, really, hates gay people and people who look like gay people.

    Seriously, get out of there.

    Ain't nowhere in the country to write for a living but L.A., and ain't nowhere in L.A. I can afford to live but here.

    So it comes down to dreams or safety, and I'll pick dreams every time. Bruises heal quicker than what-ifs.

    Seriously that line is going to stick with me for years, Pooro.

    So I got mugged in High School
    Right in front of my High School
    Near abouts where Poo lives in the San Fernando Valley
    I was waiting for my dad to pick me up and I put down my backpack because it was heavy
    I then started walking maybe ten feet back and fourth and I see this large cholo looking guy walking in my direction and my my first thought was, "Maybe I should pick up my back pack." and then I thought, "Man, here I am Mexican and I'm judging another Mexican based on how he looks. This probably has some social..." And then my thoughts were cut off because he had picked up my backpack and started walking off with it.
    So the first thing I did was say, "Hey, that's my backpack." because I was hoping he would just drop it and walk away but instead he kept walking and started getting in a car that was waiting for him.
    So I keep saying it and thinking about the expensive books and the graphing calculator in there
    And I go up to he car and I hold the door open before he can close it
    Then the car starts moving
    So my hand is on the door and I know that if I let go my stuff will be gone forever
    So I put my feet in the doorway as the car starts pulling away
    I keep on saying, "That's my backpack." as if this is all a misunderstanding and he can just give it back and that's it
    Then the guy starts punching me in the face, hard
    My glasses fly off and I hear someone in the car say "Get the gun."
    I assume for some foolish reason they're just trying to scare me but it turns out they are gang members so there may well have been a gun back there
    I don't find out though because I'm getting a bit tired of being punched in the face and I let go of the car

    Good ending though
    Turns out my friends from play production were behind me and they followed the car until they got to a phone and called the police
    So I got my stuff back and kid who punched me and the guy driving got arrested
    I went to court and everything but they took a plea deal so I didn't have to testify

    Just kind skipping past the second half of this thread to post this, so not sure if Pooro has said he was going to report it yet or not.

    Report it, even if you can only give a vague 4 guys in a silver sedan at this crosswalk description. The same guys may have been reported before, or if they do it again, the police will have a record of a previous incident.

    I'm saying this half from experience.

    Long version
    I ended up getting into a fight with a guy while walking my dog through heavily forested park (Rouge Valley area, for those who know Toronto). The guy was sitting next to his jeep with two pitbulls (off leash and no muzzles, which are required by law in Toronto), and I watched as another couple walked their dog in front of one of his dogs and the pitbull lashed out at it.

    This led to a brief confrontation between the couple and the owner of the pitbulls, who proceeded to swear and threaten the couple for letting their dog near his. Generally the kind of person who gives pitbulls a bad rap, because their behaviour is going to mirror this walking piece of shit. My girlfriend decided to speak up, which led to him directing his actions to her, calling her a bitch, telling her to fuck off. Which of course means now I'm stepping into this.

    This might not sound believable, but I truly maintained my cool, asked him to calm down and just enjoy the weather. His response was to threaten to kill me, ask if I'd like to watch my dog get killed, and then rush towards me. Brief fight, no major damage - I wasn't interested into getting into anything in the first place, but doubly so with a pitbull around.

    This all happened while the first couple watched and did nothing, even continuing their walk before returning for the end of the fight. A group of 4 sturdy lads in a car pulled up and... watched. Their only involvement was after everything was over; as I spit some blood onto the ground, the driver got out to ask if I was OK.

    "I'll be alright," I reply. "Much better after I call the police and report this idiot."

    His response: Woah man, I wouldn't do that, don't want to escalate this...

    I walked away from the guy, called the non-emergency line for the cops, collected my thoughts about what had happened, trying to remember everything, any descriptions, etc. All I told the responder over the phone was a basic description of the guy and tat he drove a blue jeep, and they already knew who I was talking about. Why? Because the sack of shit had several assault charges on his record already.

    Short version: I was attacked walking my dog while at least 6 people watched, was told not to call the cops to avoid further actions against me by a witness, and still called them (non-emergency). After just giving them a brief description over the phone of his appearance and vehicle (nothing beyond "blue jeep, recent model") they knew who I was talking about because the guy had been booked several times already for this same sort of behaviour.

    So yeah, as has already been said: you have nothing to lose in reporting it, and at the very least will give the police something to go on should it happen again. Your report may stop them from attacking someone else in the future, and if they got away with doing this sort of despicable shit to you, chances are they'll escalate it as they go.
