I have voted Yes
as you are in the wrong....
Having been in this situation - I know that everything pretty much happens at the rate of knots....and you are pretty much in auto-pilot mode, where natural defencive, and self preservation kicks in.
I would ask one question:-
Did you knowingly go out with the intention of starting on someone or let yourself be in a mental condition (drunk as a skunk and spoiling for a fight)?
Probably the answer is no....
Then taking out this idiot - perhaps has done others a favour - at great personal risk to yourself if it had gone wrong.
I don't tolerate being racially abused....and although its ended up in me being arrested and cautioned, and being convicted in the courts in the past...regardless of what others may think on the matter...I know I have done the right thing in smashing someones teeth out and breaking their jaw in 4 places....perhaps while he is spending the next 4 weeks sipping through a straw and eating baby food, he probably realised that it is better to treat people with respect.
Mr O - I hope you didn'd hurt your hand
