What I mean is that there's one candidate for Socialism, entitlements and taxing small business and wealth to the point of extinction.It divides people and that isn't the way to get our country back on track and try to solve some of these social problems. That's all I'm going to say.

Not sure why there's so much 'he shoulda known' attitude towards the teacher. If a white teacher was caught on tape giving a group of black teenagers a 'wide berth', the PC community would have gone after him with fervor. Not to mention the fact that he shouldn't have to avoid kids the same age he teaches as school. There's even a chance he knows a couple of them. One is wearing a backpack and may be walking to/from that exact school.
Now, that being said, I was a victim of this in 1994. The only thing that worked in my favor was the kid who tried to drop me was about 5" shorter than me and placed a bad hit. He actually aimed too high and got me in the front of my skull. Being naturally hard headed, I'm betting he broke one or two of his fingers, and I got a small split above my right eye that was more of a nuisance than painful. I was walking down a sidewalk in Dallas on Commerce when a group of about 6 kids decided I was a good target.
It's easy to critique sitting in the comfort of my own home, but having actually gone through it, it happens too fast to prepare for it. Do I avoid large groups of teenage/young men today when I'm walking? Not really as it's sometimes just not possible. Do I keep my wits about me when I do walk by them? Yeah, my SA is pegged on Full. Do I have my wife walk behind and to my right when we go by groups- something avoidable in large cities like Chicago and NYC? Yeah, I do. I don't walk down alleys even if it's a huge shortcut and I always CC now.
But, at no point would I ever say that this guy should have known better.
Worst case, the time it buys will hopefully allow her to put distance between them. By her walking on my right side, I'm assuming we are passing the group on my left. Basically, I'm putting myself between her and any danger. Opposite side if we are passing on their right side.
There is no way to make this the victims fault.
