Make no mistake, he caused me bodily harm intentionally and not in self-defense, and that's assault. He even admitted as much in front of at least 50 people. I will say that this was a first. Sure, I've had other people yell at me for jaywalking when they followed me across the street and really didn't have time to make it, or their kid started to follow me because they can't be bothered to hold their hand or teach them not to follow strangers, but tripping me and then taunting me is a new low.
It seems to get worse every year. Right before that, someone walking near me got overly upset because a FRISBEE from a nearby game floated into their walking path and "that could have tripped me!" During times like these, I begin to believe that 90% of Americans should just never leave their house...they're clearly not fit for civil society.
NO COMMON SENSE! hahah those are the type of people you cant reason with..
