Yay or Nay??

First things first, HAPPY EID EVERYONE!!!!!!

May God bless us all with many more great eids insh'Allah (God willing) Ameen.

Ok so I watched this video and had a question for all of you, that someone brought up in the comments.
There's this guy that tackles a robber to the ground. And Kudos to him.
But then this lady comes over and kicks the robber.
Do you think what she did was okay?
I'm not asking whether or not she should be arrested for kicking the guy (but you can include your opinion if you want to share)
I'm asking whether you think what she did was fine or whether you think it was wrong?

Okay yeah. Her kick is pretty weak. But if it was a much stronger, painful kick, would that change your decision???

Yay or Nay?

Yay first to comment!

And Yay all the way. She shouldve kicked him harder. and maybe even in the face.

or is that too harsh.

i dont know that just makes me mad (the robber, not the lady that kicked)

Artistic Logic said...

you posted over my post for this?

just kidding.

not really.

Artistic Logic said...

ok i was for real kidding

and i think she just did it out of anger, the reporter said the wife of the tackler was standing nearby and i'm guessing that's she probably did it out of anger at the man for putting her and her husband in danger

i think its wrong though

It's sort of funny and not at the same time. But YAY!!! to the guy for being so brave!!!

Well maybe she was just making sure he was down. Plus that guy who tackled him was her husband so she wanted to make sure the robber wasn't going to retaliate.

But, it was still wrong to kick him because he WAS secured and lol 'way to kick a man while he's down.'

Still, it was pretty funny :D

Yes the kicked appeared to be uncalled for. Go to jail no, she was in the heat of the moment and was expressing her anger/fear. Uncalled for, yet understood.

I would pay to see what’s going on inside your brain.

I was waiting for another “my family is weird” episode. I mean it’s Eid!! there must be dozens of stories going on!!!

and.. well.. Yay.

No, I don't think it was right to kick him while he was already down- he is still a human being, even if he should go to jail for a long time.

I suspect she did it because she needed to empower herself again after feeling afraid. That's my take on it.

Modest might gave a point though- she could have been trying to protect her husband.

I'd have kicked him until his testicles fell off.

Had the kick been harder, it would have been a NAY.

However, if any of us were held up by gunpoint and there was the opportunity to overtake the robber, I can not say most people would not feel compelled to act out of instinct or adrenaline. That's not to say kicking people in the face is ever right, but if we were put in this situation can most of us honestly say we wouldn't defend ourselves if we had the chance?

i'd kick someone in the face for worse reasons..

I probably wouldnt do it myself but I support her if thats what she wanted to do... if it was the other way around, he probably would have shot her. I dont think its 'wrong' in terms of ethics... he had a gun
