Here’ something you don’t see every day: a living statue punches a bully in the face for disturbing him non-stop during the performance.
Frankly, I wouldn’t want to ever do that kind of job for a living. Sure, you’re an entertainer and there’s probably a lot of personal enjoyment in that. But by default, you have to go to public places with lots of people around when the weather is good. So you’ll always be confronted with drunks, idiots, bullies and the like. And then this is what happens:
Legally speaking, the living statue can’t really claim self-defense when he punches the bully in the face: the guy was in no way attacking him. He can’t realistically claim he was feeling threatened. So I hope he has a good lawyer when the bully presses charges (which probably makes total sense from the bully’s point of view; assholes rarely see their own actions as the cause of the problem.)
That said, I can only nod my head in understanding that the living statue felt the need to punch the bully in the face. Maybe he was having a bad day or maybe he’d already had a series of assholes pester him before Mr. Sunshine showed up. Who knows?
Was he right to throw the punch? [Read more…]
