Who is fooling who John ? It seems we don't share the same values as you value much more a small bump on a car to the right for anybody to preserve his/her physical integrity, did you hear about human rights? However in a fair judicial system none is allowed to seek revenge or to implement his/her justice and by the way "humiliate a local national" I'm about to feel tears falling from my eyes, really ? Are you from Mars or what ? If there is any community or minority which has to be protected in UAE, it's not the Local but Labors and unskilled persons.

so what's the moral reference now, "an eye for an eye" or "turn your left cheek"?... Obviously, both slipped the poor man's mind.

The gentlemen that filmed should be rewarded and not prosecuted.
The aggressor should be locked and his face should be published so he will not repeat the aggression!

Dear Paul, for your information it seems this man has been arrested and will be prosecuted. Also this man seems to be a prominent Dubai municipality member so he should, as persons who has authority, show example as policemen.

Really it?s shocking news, because last 16 years we are staying in Dubai. I think the guy has some problem. Anyhow we believe the UAE Government. They will take it very seriously.

It's a sad indictment of the times we live in that everyone is lionising the actions of a person who sat safely in his car and filmed an assault and didn't do a thing to prevent it. No-one seems interested in reporting on or discussing the gentleman who eventually broke this fight up - he is the only protagonist in the entire affair who acted honourably.
