    Grown men stood around and watched. That's the real travesty in it. It happens way too often.

    What "they"? One man was cited and then released. No arrest was made.

    My wish for you is someone dumps a bucket of diarrhea on your head just before punching you in the face.
    We'll see how blase you are about assault after that.

    This thread is about the assault committed by a homeless man in Los Angeles. It's not about Donald Trump. Thanks

    Internet tough guys are not impressive. For the vast majority of cases someone who hits someone does not get a jail sentence. We can't afford it. A fine and maybe community service.

    Is a couple days in jail really a punishment for someone homeless? A nice bed and regular meals for a few days?

    Many homeless are mentally ill. You want to pay up to build places to get them treatment?

    Neither are the people who find senseless violence too mundane and boring to even comment about.

    So you have the statistics to back that up...right?
    In your sick world people can randomly assault others with little to no consequences. Your world is fucked up.

    Is fining someone with no money really a punishment?
    Community service by the way is a joke. What if someone doesn't feel like picking up cigarette butts? What are ya' going to do? Give him more community service?

    I don't have a solution for LA. Neither do you. They are too far gone and apparently don't give a fuck!
    They will only start to care when the tourists stop coming to town.

    No, this is how it is everywhere and will only continue to get worse.

    Easy fix.

    When somebody punches me in the face...I punch them in the face.

    No cops or judges required! No liberal judge can take back the punch I delivered.

    He was only exercising his criminal privilege granted by the state

    Not in my town, but I could see it in cities like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baltimore and Chicago.
