    And I would certainly hope that after 25 years you would have learned to turn the other cheek. Spitting at someone is childish and doesn't even deserve a response imo. If anything the response of these petitioners about being spitted on should be looked at. Before all this Walker brewhaha started when was the last time that you heard about people being arrested for spitting at someone? And now suddenly its happening left and right? My guess is that they are calling the cops in order to get these people arrested as they know that if those people are still in jail come re-election time that will be less people voting for Walker.
    Again, you claim that spitting is lame, but it IS assault. Just between you and me, I think the recall workers in this case are pussies. They should have kicked his ass so hard it would take weeks to recover. They would not have been arrested for defending themselves from an assault either. And to answer your claim that calling the cops would result in less people voting for Walker? That's laughable. They are calling the cops because they are being threatened AND ASSAULTED.

    Seriously, suppose someone walked up to you and spit on you. What would YOU do? Be honest.

    I'll give those collecting signatures a page from the Vietnam playbook to protect themselves from violence. Fill a child's water pistol with 1/2 water and 1/2 ammonia. Very effective at stopping thugs and does no permanent damage. After all, it's only a cleaning supply.

    A battery is the unlawful touching the person of another by the aggressor himself, or any other substance put in motion by him. It must be either wilfully committed, or proceed from want of due care. Hence an injury, be it never so small, done to the person of another, in an angry, spiteful, rude or insolent manner, as by spitting in his face, or any way touching him in anger, or violently jostling him, are batteries in the eye of the law. And any thing attached to the person partakes of its inviolability if, therefore, A strikes a cane in the hands of B, it is a battery.
    From this link

    Assault is spitting at someone, but missing. Battery is spitting at someone, and hitting him with the spittle.

    In Texas, you can shoot someone who spits at you, due to an interpretation of the law that gives you the right to do so if you are afraid that the spitter might have aids, even though there is almost no aids virus in spittle. Me? I'd just kick his ass, and if I lost the fight, THEN I would call the cops. After all, I would be defending myself from an assault, and I DO have the right to defend myself. If I get my ass kicked in the process, the perp would end up with even more jail time, since it was he that initiated the first assault, thus forcing me to defend my person. Lucky for me, I won the only fight I ever had that resulted from someone spitting on me. I wasn't arrested either, but the guy whose ass I beat ended up in court. He also had to go to the emergency room to treat a few facial injuries.

    Because it is lame. To answer your question I would prolly insult them. I would not call the cops and I wouldn't hit them for spitting on me. Know why? Because I am an adult that is able to recognize that doing either is calling more attention to idiots than is needed. Now why don't you answer my question? Before all this Walker brewhaha how often did you hear about people being arrested for spitting at someone?

    You can quote the law books about spitting being assault at me all that you want. It won't change my opinion of the matter.

    I agree a jaw broken in two places is alot more a deterrent never to spit on me again than a mere arrest
