RE-SHARED TO FLICKR and DAILYMOTION– YouTube decided the video, which had been up for two weeks was “offensive” based on a complaint from a single user (who has since removed his/her YouTube account).
At 4.02pm on 11 March 2012, as I was leaving Broadway Shopping Centre (Sydney, NSW, AU), I could hear load voices coming from the direction I was headed. Turning left into the ground floor wing which leads the car park, I discovered where it was coming from.
Two men were involved in a loud shouting match adjacent to the “Class” mobile phone accessories shop/cart. The shouting quickly deteriorated into physical actions as the customer (green shorts) picked up a metal-legged stool from the shop and threw it at the shopkeeper (black shirt, blue jeans).
Both men then traded punches as shoppers (including myself) scampered to get out of the way of their meandering fistfight. I managed to dig my mobile out of my pocket a second after the customer kicked in one of the glass displays of the shop and broke another customer’s mobile handset.
I managed to get 30 seconds of footage before other shoppers blocked my view. That footage is what you see here. The shop keeper completely out-punched the hapless customer.
From what I overheard, the customer was claiming the shop keeper was going to repair his phone with genuine parts and didn’t do so. The customer was upset that the shop keeper was refusing to give him a refund.
