My comments were aimed at the observation that it was permissible to assault the inspector(s) because they represented an outlet upon which to express frustration at the rail system. Armed, unarmed, whatever. I think it is interesting that we are willing to give this young lady a pass for behavior that committed by someone else may not have been easily forgiven.
Confused here. Admittedly I haven't been following closely, but did someone in this conversation actually say that? Or are you talking instead about the general public's attitude (or some segment of it)?
