i was just thinking... because in the past.. sometimes.. the other guy just dont know when to back off. I am not the kind of person that goes looking for a fight. Just dumb shit comes up from idiots that think louder is righter; or they think they can bully.. i have been lucky.. so far... these confrontations has never gotten the law involved. what is the letter of the law? when....a person will not back off.. keeps harassing you... your only option is to .. break it down to simple.. hand to hand arrangements. are there any good reason leagally.. to throw the first punch? and not get in trouble with the law? as i understand it... if you throw the first physical punch.. you can be sued by the other person.. even if they harassed you into a fight!
