I am Sorry to say it this sounds more and more like the UK. The government /authorities are only concerned with public order or should I say the appearance of order over the rights of the individual.
It's that 'don't rock the boat' thing!
The mere impertinence of a victim who actually defends themselves is a no no because it rocks the foundation that only the authorities possess the power and ability to keep order and apprehend criminals.
Have a go hero's are vigilantes who will upset the balance of things .
Many years ago it was society who where the custodians of law and order, individual responsibility to do the right thing and challenge eachothers behaviours.
The community spirit has been systematically broken down creating a free for all for those who shun morals left unchecked by an impotent justice system which says don't get involve let the police handle it.
Well the police are never there when it matters they are good at investigations and taking statements after the fact.. when it's too late.
No different in school teachers can't be everywhere. It's up to you to defend yourself and if enough people make a stand it leaves no room for the bullys.
This public order vision is our enemy
Many years ago if someone jumped a queue, everyone else would be having a word with that individual. These days people just tut!!
It's as basic as that!
