Who, in this story, was in mortal danger?

Wendy's Chili: jst3p: Wendy's Chili: jst3p: Wendy's Chili: If someone did that to me, it would take every ounce of restraint in my body not to pound their face into a bloody pulp. For that reason alone, I think it should be an arrestable offense.

Your anger management issues and lack of self control don't justify changing reasonable laws.

The law is already on my side, dipshiat.

Really, the asshat in the story got arrested for chanting "choke!"?

Maybe I misunderstood your original statement, dickhead.

Good to know.
Again, this is the kind of thinking that leads some people (women) to believe they can hit people (men) and get away with it. This is a topic that the Slippery Slope argument is very valid.

No.

Yah, I disagree. Generally if someone is in mortal danger and you're taunting them or laughing at them instead of helping, you pretty much deserve to get beaten into something unrecognizable... at least a *HELL* of a lot more than the person who dumps some milk on them in response..

but hey.. maybe your priorities are different? Maybe your clothes are just so pretty and laundry is just so expensive, or something.

Or maybe there's a difference between words and battery.

Just maybe.


That's not really what we're talking about here, Miss Goalposts.

1) You mentioned that it would take every ounce of self restraint to avoid beating someone blood for *gasp* spilling milk on you.

2) I asked if it wouldn't also take that same restraint to avoid beating someone bloody who was taunting you as you were potentially in serious danger. (story doesn't explain severity, but presumably enough that it had her rattled enough to respond).

3) You responded "NO".

If she's actually choking to death, she's not going to be responding to someone cheering the granola on. She's going to be focused on being able to breathe.

It doesn't really explain the severity of choking, but it causes a *lot* of deaths. Presumably, as I mentioned above, it was bad enough that she was rattled enough to respond in the way she did.

If it was obvious enough to the point where some dickless fark knew about it and long enough to where he had time to taunt you about it, then I imagine it was at least *slightly* serious and could be potentially dangerous.

Don't you? Or are you just presuming that someone obviously choking is NOT in any danger?

Being an asshole isn't illegal. Attacking someone is.

Don't cry over spilled milk, Subby.

While, yes, the granola chick was guilty of assault, what kind of asshat calls the cops over a punch to the shoulder and some milk. I would have taken that as appropriate consequences to being an asshat.


I'm sure you'd be saying the same thing if it were a man doing the choking and then the punching and dumping to a woman taunter, right? I mean, otherwise that would make you an inconsistent asshat.

No. I think you're hearing my point wrong. My point is not that it's okay to hit someone if you don't hurt them too bad. My point is that if you're not hurt to bad, it's okay not to hit someone back.

My point is not that the initial violence is okay. My point is that if there's no injury or intent to injure, that there's a good opportunity to begin de-escalation.

As part of de-escalation, of course you address how absolutely inappropriate violence is.

But when you're dealing with real human beings off the street in this thing called Life, a whole lot of people are accustomed to social environments where a certain amount of casual violence is accepted. That doesn't make it acceptable. That means that when you encounter an incident with otherwise decent people, you sometimes need to do some de-escalation and re-training to ensure you never see it again.

And frequently this works with otherwise decent people.

Frequently, you find people whose reaction is, "Oh, when you told me what was inappropriate before, I didn't know you meant that. Where I come from, that's not violence, that's just normal."

"Oh, everybody does that. Don't they?"

Once you communicate with people and they get their heads around what everybody doesn't do, you'd be surprised how many people's behavior improves just by learning a better definition of what "normal" is.

He has a point. "It is ok to hit if you aren't likely to do much harm" is a stupid position to defend.

so that means she was just fine?

Is this a trend or something: Teenagers don't respond rationally sometimes = She wasn't in any danger this one time from choking.

The article never even said she was "choking" just "having trouble swallowing" her food. Considering her response was

"She leapt up, hit the coworker in the shoulder and then dumped her milk on his head"


I think it is safe to assume "mortal danger" is bullshiat.
 
2012-05-08 12:18:16 PM  

fritton: unless the incident happened AFTER she wasn't choking anymore.


Which is more realistic:

She's "choking" in that she's having a coughing fit (which would get co-worker's attention) after some granola goes down the wrong tube and he says "choke, choke" and teenager overreacts,

OR

She's actually choking to death, someone else notices and openly mocks her as she desperately hoping someone will help her breathe, either someone else performs the Heimlich on her or she gets the wherewithal to do it herself, saving her own life, then, after the relief of being able to breathe again kicks in, she flies into a rage and hits the guy and throws milk on him?

To anyone rational, the first one is far, far, FAR more likely.

In a perfect, textbook situation, you are correct. You somewhat answered this yourself:


...I trained for enough years that in a "situation" my mind moves into a combat mentality.


Triggers are triggers. My safety is good, but it's been close a few times. Add having a really bad day/week/month to that and "volatile" barely begins to describe the potential.

Potentially bullshiat yes, but also potentially not. I've seen people choke, including some who have almost died from it. If someone taunted me while that was happening I would have been arrested for something much worse than dumping milk on them.

Apparently you think getting milk dumped on you is an actual serious attack and that there's nothing at all infuriating (remember we are talking about what would require your self restraint to avoid violence) about getting taunted while you are (potentially) in serious danger... I'm not going to say you're *crazy* but hey, maybe some priorities need to be adjusted.

FarkinHostile: Julie Cochrane: ...I trained for enough years that in a "situation" my mind moves into a combat mentality.


It's even "worse" when your mind has nothing to say about it, it's physical reflex.

Therein lies the problem with "Suck it up, it was nothing": It could be too late.


Yeah, I have a friend who was a Marine NCO for close enough to his 20. He ended up causing the medical retirement of several Secret Service agents. See, he didn't know they had any reason to be in the same hotel he was in, or in the same part of the country--it wasn't someplace obvious like DC.

So he goes to get out of the hotel elevator and one of them sticks a straight arm across in front of him barring his way, just out of the blue--when to his best knowledge there is no event or anything at podunk reasonably nice hotel.

So he takes the reasonably reflex action of taking this guy who's just assaulted him out into an arm bar and isn't in a cop's uniform to ask him what the hell his problem is--and starts getting piled on by a bunch of other random guys in regular clothes.

Being a Marine, and an especially lethal Marine, he's taking this gang of random attackers apart as best he can. Not to say he's winning, but he's definitely letting them know they're in a scrap. Before somebody finally catches enough clue to pull out a goddamned badge.

There wasn't anything they could do to him about it, but they didn't have a whole lot of a sense of humor over the thing. Which he could understand, given the count of permanently medically retired and temporarily disabled while they recovered from their injuries.

Yup. Definitely one of those guys you don't startle from the wrong angle or too close.

Fair enough, but given it was granola I am going to assume "choking" means "some bits went down the wrong pipe and caused coughing". And if that's the case and someone taunts you, if you lack the ability to restrain yourself you deserve to be arrested.

CA, NY, GA, OH, KY...tried to check a few different areas. Those are the only states I checked, so I'm guessing there are lots more. Looks like you are right about FL, though.


What I found for those you listed . . .

Section 240. An assault is an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present

GA:

Title 16, Section 16-5-20:
(a) A person commits the offense of simple assault when he or she either:

(1) Attempts to commit a violent injury to the person of another; or

(2) Commits an act which places another in reasonable apprehension of immediately receiving a violent injury.

Ttile 16, Section 16-5-3:

(a) A person commits the offense of simple battery when he or she either:

(1) Intentionally makes physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with the person of another; or

Come over here, let me show you what an assault looks like.

Now, see this glass of milk? I know, one eye is swollen shut, your jaw won't move and you're dizzy... see this milk *pours milk over head*...

Which of those two "assaults" is actually assault, and which one happens every day in a first grade classroom?

I wonder about the history of these two. Does this guy have a reputation as being an asshole, generally, in the workplace? Does the girl, maybe, have a reputation as having a short temper? Had he been harassing her previously? Had he been, say, trying to get into her pants but having no luck?

I'm not saying any of this should have any affect on how the case is disposed of, either by the legal system or the employer, but it's possible there might be an interesting detail or two that might come out.

For amusement the girl should press counter-charges of attempted murder on the boy. After all he did encourage her to die and he did nothing to stop her from potentially dying.

I like this idea of arresting bystanders for failing to save somebody else, as is their duty. I'm surprised we aren't doing so already as there are zero negative repercussions to such a policy. Civilized society has no use for those who will say mean words to other people. We should lock them all up and throw away the key.

But until that fine day, I will just have to be satisfied with giving the biatches a five-finger talking to whenever they get lippy.

And in your tiny little brain that constitutes "attempted murder".

Bless your heart.

FarkinHostile: coco ebert: FarkinHostile: coco ebert: I sense some deep-seated misogyny in this thread. Somehow I think that if this were a dude arrested, Farkers would be whinging about how unjust it is that men get soooo unfairly treated over something as silly as milk.

Why? Because a woman didn't get a free pass on physical assault?

It wouldn't matter what gender the assaulter is, unless they are woman, then they should be able to get away with whatever, it seems.

Don't hit anyone. It's a simple rule.

Nah, it's not that I think women should get a free pass. If the situation had been reversed and a guy poured milk on a woman, I also wouldn't be for calling in the police. Uh, it's milk. Chill out.


Just poured milk? FTFA:

Eyewitness reports state that this chanting "set off" the choking girl into a rage. She leapt up, hit the coworker in the shoulder and then dumped her milk on his head.


Rage. Hit. Two very important words. If I fly into a rage and hit someone, it is a very bad scene.

Why should it be different for anyone else? Answer: it shouldn't be. If I can control myself and not assault people, so should she.


Should she have? No.

Do I consider her a bad person for doing so? No.

Was the taunter an @sshat? Absolutely.

Would I fire her? No.

Would I fire him? I would start a file on him, and watch him like a hawk, until I had enough grounds to throw him out on his ass.

Would I do the same? 50/50

\sometimes there are consequences to your actions
\\sometimes losing control gets you in trouble
\\\sometimes being an @sshat gets you pimp-slapped
