I would suggest that, by any stretch of the imagination, these aren't men.

Just a normal alcohol fuelled Friday night in Colchester!

Its a good job the council can use their pressure washer to wash away the blood and guts.

paladin you are so right they are no more than sissy cowards. two of them to beat up on one girl. I do hope the judge sees them for what they are and locks them up for awhile or am I dreaming

The incident happened outside the nightclub, there was no menton of the people being inside the nightclub before it happened - maybe they're unconnected...?!?

It is a sickening act and if the two arrested are convicted then they deserve a stint behind bars (however unlikely through the system!), but thousands of people go out on the weekend and good times, it does seem a (fairly) isolated incident, to an extent.

To say close nightclubs becuase they are to blame is crazy, why not ban alcohol all together SR...? Would that fix the problems..?

What do you suggest they do - call the police before the incident occurs?

I'm not aware of an CCTV system that can predict an assault.
