If I had, I'd have tried to flag down a ranger to try and sort things out. I can understand that you'd be angry, and I'd be angry too, but that does not justify aggrevated assault (which is a far more serious crime than vandalism).

Feel free to share your experiences with taggers, but we can not have a thread glorifying or advocating vigilanteism.

Back in the day Problem Child would have been evicted rapidly, more with regard for the citizens forming a lynch mob than his protection. Bitch of it is someone would have had to give Problem Child a ride to the Greyhound station in Reno and hand him bus fare.

Good thing that next year there will be a camp designed for this kind of thing, Camp Settle This Like Men. You could have brought the perpetrator over, gotten outfitted, and had a lively and mostly safe discussion in our Octagon of Justice. Plus, there would be whiskey available to the victor.

simple resolve it with fisticuffs. pick the largest most pissed off person to administer justice with the rest acting as witnesses that he was somewhere else at the time. no biting or crying
