Unprovoked violence is not new. It’s called bullying. It’s a distinct personality disorder. David and Goliath maybe an early example of a bully
getting his comeuppance. Moses got into trouble when he came to the aid of a person being beaten. Peter overacted with his sword in the Garden of
Gethsemane but Jesus was there to fix it.
It’s a matter of personality. With enough time on Freud’s couch, we could learn what impulses this bully was obedient to. Because both people who
were struck were blind sided, a street-fighter’s style, and they did not get up quickly, there may have been serious injuries inflicted. I’d
guess the perpetrator was an old hand at this and will have a lengthy record. Add to that his physical size and his prowess at his craft, and you have
one dangerous person on the loose.
If I was a judge, I’d turn loose a check-writer or Mary Jane offender under a half pound, and fill his bunk with this fellow who relishes violence.
It is unlikely you can teach him a lesson he’d follow, so on his third or fourth trip downtown, I’d put him away until he gets to SS age, 65. By
then even if the spirt has not left him the physical ability to injure others will be diminished.
