  1. SEE HOW THIS YOUNG MAN JUST GOT a murder wrap around his neck! You never know who is only seconds away from his grave, and looking for some unfortunate man to make a villain. This is the major reason to earnestly avoid picking up fights with anybody, no matter how healthy they may seem.

    THIS SAME THING HAD also happened to a friend of mine, who intervened between a husband-and-wife fight. He just pushed the man away from his wife and the man fell down and died there. It was even the wife that reported my friend to the police.

    I EQUALLY RECALL the day I thought I had entered, when a SARS officer in plain clothes forgot he was not in his uniform, and intentionally broke the windscreen of my car just because we had a disagreement. Anthony Joshua promptly took me over before I knew it, and the man was falling like a tree before I could caution the A. J. in me. I am just glad the man did not die there, for I thought he was going to.
