Yeah, I've found that you just can not say anything to someone that is negative in any way without expecting quick escalation... the average person today is violent, crude, senseless, and semi-inept...

Not that I like the English mannerisms... but, you can at least expect a witty retort there as opposed to getting clocked here in the states.

This guy or his friends all made a tactical error on this one... in this situation, the crew has to gather around closely in order to show some strength and the possibility of retaliation... this guy stood alone with this guy who was obviously belligerent and quite frankly a little scary looking... his eyes betrayed the violent nature. The step-dad guy should not have been left alone and his buddies should have been within striking distance of the belligerent dude... not that a fight is recommended, but a show of force might have made this a situation that belligerent dude just walked away from.

Sounds like you are spending too much time in Chicago.

Chicagoans are no exception... Being a Midwestern city ppl tend to be on the nice side, but you'll run into these shenanigans everywhere...

When someone is permenantly altering a course by vandalising it, is it not all of our business? I and all the other local volunteers that put alot of blood and sweat into building and maintaining courses to keep them nice are not going to stand idly by and ignore some ignorant douche that wants to break sh** up. And if that wasn't a sucker punch, then i've been wrong all these years about what a sucker punch is.
If I was just missing your sarcasm, then just disregard this response.

not trolling, just stating my opinion. if the city or park owner wants to prevent this behavior there would proper code notifications and staff to do so. I got into it with some kids doing donuts in there truck on a fairway at my local course that i worked so hard to maintain. i called the police and i broke more of the law than they did by simply trying to keep them there. nothing happened. since then i have learned not to call people out for stuff like this, more than likely they have no regard for anything, and those are not the folks you approach. I guarantee you the guy was lying in that hospital bed wishing he would have just kept walking. people are crazy, don't mess with them if you are not prepared for some action. that is a hard learned lesson.

Sounds like consequentialism vs non-consequentialism

What if he's a professional tree security guard and he literally was minding his business?
