How come this weirdo is your buddy
Technically a smart lawyer can get him off the hook. The steroid made him do it. He was not at fault. Because he cannot help it.
By the way, is this weirdo straight
Yah, read some things about strange people hanging out at gyms. Not really because they like to exercise. They are looking for something else.
Stay away. Unless you are that kind too.
You could try to make a police report, but they won't actually do anything since it appears to be a non seizable offence. Likely they'll ask you to file a Magistrates complaint. If the judge thinks that it's worth investigating then the police will do work. Still need the police report first i think.
Yes, your options for recourse do seem rather pathetic, but that appears to be the way it is. Lots of people have kicked up a big fuss about it on the papers in the past.
I have made a police report, followed up on the police medical report and have filed a complain at the subordinate court.
Right now, I will just have to wait and see if the police is going to take action. Else, i will have to engage a lawyer or prosecute him myself.
I just hope justice will be served in the end.
If police is not going to take action against this assault case, why do we need them for?
Tell the investigating officer that if SPF is not taking necessary action or give a good answer, tell them you will write to the ministers. These people will chicken out when their job is at risk.

In this way, you'll not only get a bigger picture, but also you'll get things right.
We are behind you. Violent does not solve problem.
Keep us updated.
Either way, Karma wise, What goes around comes around. Justice will prevail one way or the other.
It's your mental and physical health that's more important.

I guess there are many cases like this reported each day.
They will try to discourage from pursuing to reduce workload I guess? Only really punish the major ones like murder, etc.
But for TS's case, it's quite obvious that the injury qualifies for an inquiry, worse when he got threatened. That's why many here suggest TS to raise a case, (my opinion) via a lawyer to the AGC)
Anyway, TS mentioned he's having difficulty swallowing and getting frequent dizziness, IIRC. All are physical proof that he had been assaulted. If the police shrugs him off which is what some were trying to put across, go to a hospital and get a medical report, take photos of the bruises, date them and take a trip to the liar, err... lawyer. You'll be surprised how much help and enlightenment you can get from these people.
I dunno if civil action is worth the trouble (never had to do it), but I hope they go ahead with criminal proceedings against him. "Chocolate or vanilla" sounds like an disagreement between 6-yr olds!
Did this all take place at the gym? If it did, you might want to consider asking management to kick him out and ban him -- don't think you'll want to be working out anywhere ard him in future!
I'm just interested to know the gym buddy's side of the story.
Perhaps TS provoked him in a way not mentioned in TS' testimony. The cause for violence seems too fickle.
