Wow!! Reality check NEEDED.

In todays society, IN AMERICA, people assault other people with physical violence ALL THE TIME.

Dont make the mistake of putting your morals onto others actions. People stab other people over a can of soda. Beat others senseless over a dirty look. Do some research into interpersonal violence
Possibly. Understand I also live in a fairly small community. In my daily life I am unlikely to engage anyone who is in an extreme stress or confrontational setting. I do not live in a geographic location that has a high "culture of honor" (its the term in psychology where one is expected to physically correct a perceived slight - think the stereotypical western where "you looked at me funny").

So am I underestimating the threat of semi-random violence? I may very well be. However I also think that a good many people also overestimate that threat.
