They grab him by the hair and shirt and hit him repetitively with punches and kicks. I don't know what he did but I expect this is gonna be the ritual reprisal, already witnessed many times before: a minute of thrashing at the end of which the body is left motionless on the ground, then the victim comes to and retreats in a sorry state. This time, however, the beating goes on for a long, dreadfully and despicably long time. The blows are meant to inflict the worst possible damage and the great majority of them land on the head of the ladyboy, the few that hit other parts of his body (shoulders, collarbone and arms) do it just because of poor aim. They are mostly kicks. The bar owner hits rather weakly but she manages to immobilize the already passive target, keeping him from running away and making sure that he's always exposed with a favorable angle to the others' blows. The man hits with frightful power, fortunately not too often. What disturbs me most is his expression: he's obviously beating purely for fun, like a hot-headed young boy might do with a boxing bag. The second woman, on the other hand, is an unstoppable fury: blind rage is driving her. She hits hard and tirelessly for various minutes on end. In the meanwhile the ladyboy's body rolls on, bangs against and bounces off the asphalt, from one sidewalk to the other.
