http://theliberal.ie/video-a-bounce...g-a-woman-in-the-face-after-she-swung-at-him/ So; what do you reckon? Was he out of order for clattering her square on in the face, or did she deserve it for trying to clout him first? In my opinion,hitting a woman is a scummy thing to do. However, it appears from the (admittedly short) video that she was the instigator and launched a haymaker at him that Stevie Wonder would have seen coming. But seeing as she missed, was his reaction proportionate? Also, would the police be investigating if it had been some pissed up bloke that got the belt? For me, he overdid it. She could probably have been overpowered/restrained without too much difficulty. Apologies if this has already been posted; had a quick look in the first couple of pages and couldn't see anything.
