He was totally wrong to expect it was his right to walk into anywhere with equipment like this without showing some respect for other peoples privacy & rights. Not just the staff but other punters in the 'restaurant'.

What the hell is going on in France that this guy has to carry 'documentation' from his doctor and present said documentation to anyone that asks for it? I'm lost. Why the hell did these three numbskulls suddenly freak out, rip up his 'documentation' and attack him? Is there some historical or racial hatred in France involving cyborgs that we are unaware of? I'm really confused. And does this mean it is open season on people that text and such while they are trying to walk at the same time?
