Would love to know the full story. Can't see them being attacked for no reason.
I'm with Suzan 5 .
Why would you come home and leave your family behind????
Hmmm.......Probably more to this one as well
Drunken obnoxious Aussies no doubt.
He came home because he had job interviews and to take his son I think it was to the hospital as he needed surgery for broken ribs I think? I cant remember but he was on the radio this morning talking about it. But some of his family stayed because they were needed for police interviews and because his daughter had just been married over there so wanted to stay.
Said he had been to Bali about 8 times and had never experienced anything like this.
Take a look in the Bounty any night and you'll see what a cesspit it is. Out of control people fuelled by booze and drugs. The bouncers are deaing with some real filth in there. For all those parents who are about to let their kids go off to Bali for Leavers/Schoolies week unsupervised, think again. You could be bringing your child home in a bodybag.
haha settle down ^
Stuff like this happens everywhere in Australia so it was bound to happen in Bali.
You don't get beaten up for non reason so I'm sure there is more to the story than what has been let out already.
Having observed the behaviour of tourists visiting Indonesia for an extended time I am quite happy to leap in with some assumptions of my own concerning the victims involvement.
However I think we should all wait and see what emerges from this incident.
Indonesian bouncers can get a bit delusional at times just like their foreign counterparts. As they no doubt have to deal with a lot of complete fools and idiots at places like the Bounty their own threshold of 'respect' toward foreigners has most likely, like that of many Indonesians, been considerably reduced.
If the bouncers were of the calibre of those employed by the Australian Consulate Bali several years back then I would not be surprised to hear of them attacking someone with great vigour. I once watched the clowns in security uniforms at the Au Consulate in Bali attack a quite humble and courteous taxi driver with great enthusiasm. Without going into great detail on the incident they behaved like common thugs.
These were not nightclub bouncers but were working for the Australian Government as security guards. I have seen similar but fortunately lesser levels of rudeness and thuggery displayed by the local security staff at the Australian Embassy Jakarta in the past.
They had several in their number who were clearly pumped up on steroids, were astoundingly self important, dump as bricks, and were astonishingly arrogant, rude and threatening toward anyone they chose to pick upon. I noted that the Polda personnel on detachment there had very little to do with them and appeared to shun them.
So there are certainly thugs around in these so called security teams.
In case anyone thinks I have it in for Indonesian security staff, I do not. Indeed I have several friends who work in that industry and they are very professional and rather pleasant individuals, of both sexes, and all are Indonesian.
