    If you throw a punch in public, you're gonna get arrested. Regardless of provocation. You may not be remanded, but you'll appear in court.

    If the judge decides the provocation was sufficient, then you'll get off. But cops aren't judges, we don't decide matters of provocation on the street. We stop fights.

    You could be right, but I have a friend that was arrested for nothing I could identify other than the cop was pissed off. Someone in the crowd filmed it, so he got off on resisting arrest, and all the other things they tried to charge him with. At one point, he did tell the cop "fuck you" and that's the only thing that stood up in court. Judge said those were "fighting words"

    People get arrested for 'nothing' all the time. Priority one in an incident is to stop the violence and that means slapping cuffs on everyone, that's the way it is.

    Some of these situations get sorted on the scene, others back on the station. Still overs have to wait for their day in court.

    There was no violence. Only an ass hole cop.

    LOL Oxymoron.

    Are you applying the notions of legitimacy theory to the actions of individuals? If so, then ignore the remarks/links below.

    If you're not referring to legitimacy theory, I think you need to revisit your notions of critical thinking.

    Much of the OP's remarks strike me as comments about discursive integrity and decorum in general. One'll find no objections from me as goes the need for unrelentingly exhibiting either of those qualities.

    Why? How?

    We all see such individuals from time to time. For my part, generally, I just ignore them, unless they are behaving so uncontrollably that they pose a clear and present danger to my safety.

    I share that sentiment.

    Agree.

    I can't help except imagine what it would be like to be the person that is having to deal with them.

    TY for the reply.

    Am I correct to infer from the above statement that sympathy (empathy?) is the emotion you get upon seeing people who do not control themselves in public?

    I feel empathy for the person that has to deal with the nasty behavior in the sense that I can't help except imagine if I had to deal with them and I feel disgust towards the person that is flying off the handle.

    I find men to be more emotional in discussion than women.
    But I think it's because men do not like to be challenged or outwitted by a woman.
    Most men I talk to (in real life) are very off put by my confidence, calmness and directness.
