"Son, as soon as someone puts their hands on you..."

I saw the article "Memoirs of a Bullied Kid" on the site Single Dad Laughing. It's written by a guy named Dan Pearce, and he seems like a hell of a guy. He's talking about raising his son, about accepting yourself, dealing with conflict, things like that. Pretty inspirational and good stuff.

The Memoirs of a Bullied Kid article must've taken a lot of guts to write, and I massively respect that. That said, I disagree with his conclusion on how to deal with violent bullies. So I want to send some praise and respect in his direction, but also some significant disagreement.

I originally wrote this as a comment for Hacker News, but it came out to about a normal post's length. Tone is more discussion site level than blog post level, but you'll get the gist of it -

"Son, as soon as someone puts their hands on you..."

This comment will be controversial, especially for North Americans and Western Europeans. I ask you to read it and think about it a moment before reacting, and comment if you disagree. I believe what I'm about to say is true, and I'm not trying to get a rise out of people - I want to fix some problems with society.

Cathay Pacific Management: Den of Lies, Abuse, and Threats

Two days ago, I researched all the lawyers and organizations in HK, looking for the best ones.

Yesterday, I retained top legal counsel (I paid 15,000 HKD for a 3 hour meeting. Ouch.)

Immediately after that, I scheduled a meeting with Senior Inspector Lai, and I filed a police report, which is published in full in the article, "Fight Corporate Violence: Marshall vs. Cathay Pacific Management."

I explained my position in, "To The People of Hong Kong: On Virtue, Authority, and Terror."

Today I contacted all the relevant trade unions that represent Cathay Pacific staff. I also reached out to numerous journalists, and I've been looking for the best contact info for Hong Kong Police. (There's multiple associations, but is there a definitive organization that protects on-duty officers? Is there a particular member of the HK Police I can contact to report officers being fraudulently put in harms' way?)
