(In regard to an act of violence by a guy who was fed up about people talking in a movie theater)
The issue; our current legal system is not working. We've restricted areas that the 'bad' people don't care to follow. They've made it easy for people to make money off others by suing for any petty injustice. And they've made people overly aggressive, self-important and careless to the point of idiocy because they can benefit from nearly any circumstance.
But the point is simple; the law has made us both aggressive and pansies. Those that are 'evil-doers' just don't give a shiate. Those that are 'good-doers' are still arseholes because they think they have protection from the law and are emboldened by it, but at the end of the day, are scared off by real violence.
