One of my pet peeves is swarming. No one fights one on one any more. They’ll swarm a guy, pepper spray him and then stab him and give him the boots. In the Michael Levy case they hit him three times in the back of the head with an axe. That is absolutely deranged. There is certainly no honour or manhood involved in that.
Ganging up on someone, using weapons and kicking him when he’s on the ground is senseless, cheap and dirty. Not something that someone wants to brag about. If people find out you swarmed someone then you will likely get swarmed.
One of the good things about all these shootings is that it tends to reduce the swarmings. If a gang of bullies is going to swarm someone they’ll think twice if they think that guy might pull out a gun and blow their head off. Yet in reality, all the gang violence is directly related to swarming.
Someone with small man syndrome joins a gang to become a bully. Nothing more nothing less. "Don’t mess with me, I’m with the Hells Angels." However nowadays that simply means shoot me I'm a deranged crack dealer. Yet the swarming intent still exists within the gang mentality.
If we can’t beat you we will outnumber you and or shoot you. At least with the gangs there is a motive. Selling drugs to make money. With swarming it’s absolutely senseless violence yet neither have any honour. They’re just bullies no matter how you rationalize it and no one likes a bully.
