Does This Guy Deserve a Punch?
At first, I thought that the guy was out of hand for punching the obnoxious dude in the local Target. But my husband made me think about it from a different perspective: these people were obviously disabled, minding their own business, and some guy comes around and farts in the lady's face not once but twice without provocation of any kind. And they're running around videoing it and thinking it's funny. The husband comes out swinging and nearly got arrested for battery. But what if he did nothing? What if they just sat there and dealt with the unpleasantness? Bet you they would be up for more and more "farting" in the face and all kinds of nasty treatment. If they called the police or store security, think anyone would do anything about it? Of course they wouldn't! So, these folks had a choice: be victims, and get ready for more bullying, or slug the dude and hope ya don't go to jail. I don't know. This video is obviously up for everyone's mocking pleasure in any event. There ought to be some sort of rule against videoing and broadcasting people who are minding their own business like that, but I guess there isn't because it's a public place. Still. It just doesn't seem right that the video is up; unlike those TV "hidden camera" silly videos, they likely don't have the permission of the people being taped.
