Some of us probably have encountered bullies in our daily lives. It could be anywhere in public, at office or during abroad, but let me restrict this thread to be confined at 'BULLIES AT PUBLIC PLACES".
Just like to know anyone experienced with bullies and how you handled the situation. If someone threatens, scold, shout, express exceedingly rude or even tried to engage physically with you, meaning coming closer to you with his chest (I think never HER chest) brushing against you, or even already started pushing you, what would you do?
In my knowledge, if two persons fight in public places, both will be punished by the law regardless of who started the fight or for whatever reasons.
If he/she hits you and you do not retaliate, he will get away scot free, unless if you pursue the case, you'll need to report it to the police, go for injuries examination at your own cost at any government hospitals A&E, then the police will advise you to lodge a case against him at the magistrate court.
And in order to prove your case, you'll probably need evidences like witnesses or otherwise, and most, if not all, would not like to get involve, they will reject being your witnesses because they are required to attend court session (that's my practical experience).
If you retaliate, you'll end up called fighting voluntarily, unless you can prove yourself as defending your safety.
