this is completely disgusting. That is why I recently started carrying a knife on my belt loop last month. Typically in the past (I have been attacked as a result of the lifestyle I used to live) I would just fight back. But lately I read and watch the news, and random people out of nowhere are assailing people with any number of weapons on public locations.
I drew the line at the man in Canada who played operation on an innocent bystander, and not a single person did anything to help. Thats when I decided I better at least carry something on me personally. My managers at work got no beef with it, as it is not against the law.
I always carry a 22 inch machete in my vehicle, but I want to have something on me personally for safety now. I would never, EVER watch as some bystander just gets brutally attacked for no apparent reason like that. You will see me go in and break limbs.

I just saw this story and video on my local news. They said it was most likely gang related. Very sad that a child had to see this.

Just how many chances does someone deserve, in your opinion? I think he's already had too many chances.

The day I read in the papers a guy was being smacked up by a really violent person and someone stepping in to help, is the day I start believing in Saints.. sad but true

Yes, a midget.
I have an unnatural fear of clowns, REALLY old people (the kind with the see-through skin), and Little people. I have no idea why.
So I guess the scariest thing in the world is an elderly, midget-clown.
Oh, and if he was hiding in a tall hedge.
Tall hedges bother me too.
