Yes respect goes both ways. And no, there's no need to remind me. I'm well aware and I am not saying it's always justified. However, this fool
was asked to leave on several occasions by Security and Police (Police in Australia do not have the same powers as they do at home in the USA). The
individual was drunk, pushed police and security then went for the officer's weapon, so the officer issued the nice man with the ticket (See:
Society in Australia cries victim any time they encounter Police and often use the line "Fair go".. or some other Australian slang. They have no
respect for the law, laws or the people that enforce them and the country is going to hell in a hand basket quicker than a stampede with diarrhea.
People here play the victim too often and it's grown tiresome in the 18 months I've lived here. They don't answer for their crimes when they
should. It's rather sickening and annoying.
