Just how far will the lean vs. fat battle go?
Seems like people are going way overboard with the discriminations against obesity, not to mention the second hand smoke issue.This story caught my eye as I could not believe this headline was for real. Are these priority subjects for peole to be concentratiing on?
 



www.pittsburghlive.com
Nazzareno Didiano, 44, stopped dishing out peanut butter bars and Blue Bunnies last May 12 and began pummeling a pudgy-faced Bloomfield teen during a meltdown.

The teen, now 14, told Allegheny County Judge John A. Zottola during a brief trial that Didiano grabbed him by the arm, yanked him from his bike, punched him in the face and slammed him into a wall.




Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


How far should the punishment go for a man who attacks a child over ice cream?
Have to remember the good old days, when a child was lucky enough to have the money to meet the ice cream truck, the highlight of a child's day.
And the child is not totally innocent either, but the age difference does have to matter.

The ice cream guy is by no means in the right, but the bratty little boy should have had some sort of punishment as well. Judging by how the article portrays the boys behavior in court it doesn't seem as if he has learned a lesson and he feels that taunting people is acceptable.

Dumb situation all the way around. Two hot-heads, one a grown man, one a boy, and both appear to have about the same level of maturity. Pitiful.

Jemison;

I agree totally,the kid was a brat, but all children who overeat have problems, IMO.
Guess I do not recognize this country as it once was??

Ok that ice cream vendor went too far. However sometimes kids need some good old fashioned whackings to learn anything (trust me I'm the same age). Yes the vendor was wrong in near every aspect. But it's a win win situation. Thats one potential time bomb who's no longer out serving ice cream and another overweigh teen who's now thinking about his weight.

People are too darn easy on kids.....this little son-of-a-gun had no business talking to an older man like that.

He really isnt that fat anways......But if the older man hit him then the older man should be severely punished, still no excuse for the boys actions.

I'm glad this made the news


The judge seems fair (could have been worse)
the story points out the kid snickered in court
the ice cream guy probably saved the kid from a life regret if the kid is now really weight-conscious.

And the mother- instead of railing about the light sentence she agreed!

Sorry if I sounded a bit ignorant there. I don't think I'm better than the rest of my generation, I'm just cynical. Look around my school and I see an obesity problem, but thats not what gets me. It's the fact that probably 90% aren't even trying to do something about it.

Anyhow the ice cream vendor went too far but perhaps the kid deserved it. From the sound of it he did instigate the whole thing, and then look what he does in court. He giggles, of all things to do. Being in the same age group I can honestly say that he acted very inmature for his age. I've met sixth graders (no offense to the sixth graders, I was once one myself) with more maturity. They both got what they deserved.

He did the kid a favor, when he's 40 years old he'll look back and say

"thank you ice cream man, I know I was an rude beligerant fat-body and a little punk kid. You made me aware of my fat body, I was aware before but my mom told me to lie and say I was not so people would feel sorry for me....thanks to you Im no longer a fat slob and confined to my bed..thank you"

Yup, that's what he'll say. This little punk needed a rude awakening. He has no business talking to people like that. But the man had no right to hit him (if in fact did).

Kids whyne too much these. And blame thier faults on other people.
Why did the mother say he is NOW self conscious about his weight???
WTF, as if he didnt know he was a Fat-body before all this.......

Someone call the wambulance!

I don't think Siriuslyone was being sarcastic, I think it was an honest compliment. I'd say the same thing, you've got a good balanced outlook for your age. There's hope for the world yet..

As you tell tell I'm not very good at recognizing sarcasm either (assuming it was sarcasm). Anyhow thanks for the compliment.

Now if only parents would actually tell their kids that they need to do something. I understand that not everybody can have a fast metabolism and all but sometimes you've just go to take what life gives you and make the most of it. Perhaps if kids actually had to participate in gym class, then maybe we'd see some change.

Dear one;

It was indeed a compliment..the very best to you..
You do not write nor think 14 and I am old enough to be your Mom, so I feel I know when I hear an exceptional child..
Please keep on keeping on and you will go far...

That's kind of funny.

The ice cream vendor should have known better, seeing as he is an adult. What was said was certainly not worth a punch or even throwing. They should have just carried on their childish retorts and let things lie.

Crazy people.
