Dorm attack sets poor example

The confrontation caught on CCTV included the assailant beating the smaller and weaker woman with her motorcycle helmet. Right, the victim, her injuries obvious even though the photo has been blurred. (Photos via social media)

Violence is never justified as a way to deal with disputes. It can result in serious injury and even death, making dispute situations more difficult to resolve.

I am quite sure that anyone who has seen the video clip of a larger-bodied woman severely beating up her girlfriend at a dormitory building in Bangkok must have felt upset. At the same time they must feel heartfelt sympathy over the injured woman who was weaker and smaller than the attacker. After seeing the clip which went viral on social media last week, several questions came to mind.

Why did she act so violently against her weaker and smaller girlfriend? What caused her to be so unkind, provocative, aggressive or violent towards her lover? And was she not afraid of the law or did she realise her actions could land her in jail if they caused personal injury or death?
