Re: Assaulted at live game

Nobody knows what you've been on about. It's not all rainbows and unicorns in Connecticut. Overdoses are up three-fold there since 2012. You can help and be concerned for victims of the opioid crisis and the rest of society while also finding it in the best interest of society to document a man who puts his hand around your neck.

Rapini isn't even in New England so I'm not sure why cally brought up Foxwoods. Maybe he was confused with me.

You live in a war zone overrun by felons/ex-felons where the police have no time to do anything other than try to quell gang violence.

I live in the conservative bastion known as Washington, DC, across the street from a housing project. The police here somehow have plenty of time and resources to deal with non-life threatening situations.

You know what's best for your community. I know what's best for mine. I don't want to argue anymore. I genuinely feel bad for you and I hope you improve your circumstances soon.

I'm guessing if you were someone "important" like a politician or someone who gives money to local politicians... DA would find the interest and the resources to go hard in the paint. I'm pretty sure Rapini is only important on 2P2 though.

I was pointing out that most casinos are located in places where the police are stretched thin. Foxwoods seems pretty nice and one of the major exceptions.

Nobody is helping society by clogging up the legal system with minor, solvable problems in places where the police are stretched thin.

Of course, one can argue that THIS problem isn't minor/solvable. And I accepted that disagreement for most of the thread. But Rapini is not just arguing this problem isn't minor/solvable, but also even more minor things like someone knocking over your chip stack deserve the attention of the law. That is an incredible waste of police and legal resources no matter where you live.

Re: Assaulted at live game

When all physical altercations are immoral and illegal, you can not be expected to differentiate between disputes that require police and those that are resolved when the parties are separated.

THAT is quite a long reach from what Rapini actually wrote.

To be fair, I didn't believe it either at first, which is why I tried many times to clarify.

Let me help you read the thread:

1. Villain grabs OP, but only once. He stops or someone restrains him.

2. Villain reaches for OP, but stops or is restrained just as he makes contact (such that physical contact is made but physical injury does not occur).

3. Stop the story where Villain knocked OP's chips over, make one chip lost, and set the story in a jurisdiction that has strict laws against destruction of personal property.

In these cases, OP may have the legal option of pursuing legal action. Should he?

I weighed in so that hopefully people who can be convinced will do so for the benefit of all of us.

To be clear, I agree it would be really nice to live in your world. Every minor dispute gets resolved by police and judges with infinite resources and infinite patience, and the laws are designed around correcting bad behavior. We'd only spend resources locking up those who can't be corrected, and even people who are locked up would learn real-world skills to eventually become productive members of society.

I invite you to visit my world someday, the one where police have to take time away from battling gang violence to book people for bar fights and basketball court disputes; where felons are released due to prison overcrowding and then take a "snitches get stitches" attitude into public cardrooms; one where many people (and disproportionately those who gamble) think handshakes are legally binding and that verbal threats are an insult to one's honor.

I also invite those who haven't decided which world they live in to look around and do best for the society they live in, rather than the society they wished they lived in.
when one enters a place of business where large amounts of money are changing hands daily
your world better be checked at the door.
to think and allow otherwise will and would shut down all poker rooms and casinos

Re: Assaulted at live game

What state did this occur in?

if you did this at foxwoods you might have got your teeth knocked in. You show up to a table and make everyone move over by asking the dealer. You tell a guy to his face FU.

You got off easy.

Also to all the old farts in this thread. We had fights in school all the time and the teachers didn't do ****.

Agreed. I'm surprised the guy who he said words to didn't shoot him dead on the spot. Dem's fightin' words. Yee haw.

I think you missed SuperSwag's sarcasm.

The guy could be a dangerous psychopath. Just give the police your name and address and tell the guy you'll see him in court.

Re: Assaulted at live game

After reading this thread, I have reached only one conclusion. If I ever come to a table and someone is crowded into my space, I am immediately going to drop kick him in the face. it is the only way to be sure.
