    Not exactly how it went down

    Police arrest two in fight | press-citizen.com | Iowa City Press Citizen

    I saw this altercation. Th "victim" was trying to pick a fight with almost everybody, and somebody finally gave him what he asked for. He was spitting on people, trying to grab random girls, and generally acting like somebody who deserves to have his clock cleaned.

    Yes, deservedly so. I guess society isn't allowed to beat on jerks like this without legal responses, which is too bad, because I would have loved to get a shot in.

    Re: Not exactly how it went down

    The guy may have been trying to start a fight, but throwing punches is not considered self defense against someone spitting on you and calling you out. If the "victim" had thrown the first punch than it may be a different story. Still even in that situation, you defend yourself until you can get away; you don't bring in a friend and continue to fight.

    My personal opinion is that the victim should have been charged with public intox or public disturbance or something. That would be in addition to the charges on the other two, which they also deserve to have.

    Re: Not exactly how it went down

    The two that took down the "victim" used vigilante justice to shut him up. The "victim" never got a punch in. It may not have been fair, but the dude had it coming.

    If you are gonna bark, you better be able to bite.

    That usually turns out well.

    If somebody spit on your wife/girl and grabbed her, would you just laugh it off? Just because the "victim" didn't get a punch in doesn't mean he had good intentions.

    I saw it, man. He got exactly what he asked for.

    Considering concerns about body fluids and HIV, spitting on someone may well be considered "assault" nowadays. Not sure abouyt that, my friend in the court system retired a few years ago.
