"in fact, we wanted to avoid getting hurt at all. although the soldier was by himself and unarmed and there were two of us, armed with knives and machetes, were were worried that he might turn round and beat the crap out of us. so we ran him down first and waited until he was lying on the ground, injured, before we dared to start hacking at him."
"even afterwards, we were too dim to be able to find our way to a police station and had to just stand around, ranting at passers-by to pass the time, until the police arrived and told us what we had to do next."
