When is assault acceptable?
Woke up this morning to see most TV channels condeming a mature man who when confronted by a youth smashing an object into the back of his head, gave the offender a couple of jabs to the head.
This mature man is a politician who seeks to gain notoriety by extreme right wing views on immigration, to the extent of blaming the most recent victims of terrorism for their own deaths.
Who should be charged for assault in this case? Was this disgusting individual entitled to hit back?
