Again, in informally judging the reasonableness of what the girl did, it's not what you or I know. We are not normal people.

Not in this context. And the whole point is that everybody except coddled bints know what this kid did is not a crime.

I rarely stand up for millennials, but this dummy did nothing to justify a beating.

The kid was then obviously a whiny little bitch about it at home such that his father felt the need to go to the home of a minor with the intent to rough the minor up some. In a bit of cosmic justice the adult bite off more than he could chew. Don't fuck with Scottish people.

I have not done a 50-state survey, but traditionally you can in fact make a citizen's arrest of someone for committing a misdemeanor, as long as it was committed in your presence and it's a the sort of offense that constitutes a breach of the peace (that's a term of art and fairly broad). And you can use reasonable force to prevent them for escaping. And, yeah, you are liable civilly and maybe criminally (depending on the intent requirements of the offense, I imagine) if you turn out to be wrong.

Punching and fishing hooking is certainly reasonable force in this case, right? And the kid was not fleeing. He had a shitload of RC equipment, so was going nowhere with that stuff, and she initiated the assault when he moved some of it out of her reach and she didn't like that.

Can't we all agree the authorities are always right. How did they become authorities otherwise?

I'm appointing myself the authority over this thread. Obey me, peasants.

She's right. I don't own a forklift or a backhoe.
