And they let those mentally ill people running around downtown.... I was rushed from behind and pushed onto the street on the way to work by one of those crazy people. Ended up walking away after realizing he's crazy, literally.
You have people who are clearly in the wrong, apprehended by the the police and god forbid if they have one scratch, they would be awarded hundreds of thousands dollars. It's payday for them and who endure the burden? Tax payers who work their ass off and get as much as 50% of their income taken away.
I'm so upset reading that story. The family should have been charged with negligence. If your family is crazy, fucking control them, send them to an institution where people can take care of them. Fucking let them running around and then cry foul when somebody harm them in self-defense. What's up with that new fad? "I'm not in control of my action so whatever the fuck I do, I'm not guilty". Fuck, you could massacre the whole town and you would be innocent as long as a lawyer can prove you're crazy.
"This fight is not about money". Go suck a d****. When you sue in civil court, seeking damages, you're fucking milling for money.
