Street scamming isn’t murder, although I can see where it could lead to one.

A guy came up to me and my companion as I got out of my car.

I had already seen him approach someone else on the street and ask them for money.

He was using some variation on the ever-popular “I need bus fare” rift.

When I told him that I didn’t believe he was legitimate and that I wasn’t in the mood for his antics he said… “Why? You find out she’s cheating on you?”

Which I’m sure is exactly what someone who really did need busfare would have said.

There are days I regret that society no longer allows us to administer a good old-fashioned thrashing to people who deserve it.
