On a related note, a University of Michigan study concluded what I guess we already knew but wasn't official -- that in areas where adult men are scarce, young people are 36 percent more likely to commit assaults. Father absence is a risk factor for a range of adverse outcomes at the individual level . . . behaviors from promiscuity to violence often are found in populations where fathers are absent
I've always thought that one of the best things about MA training is that it exposes young men to strong but positive male role models when there is none at home. Guys who are at the gym or dojo pounding on each other are less likely to be out on the street pounding on innocent people for fun.
The Game continues, thanks to asswipes like this guy, who went so far as to video himself knocking out a 79 yr old man and then bragged about it. Fortunately, he was stupid enough to show it to a stranger who notified the police.
If he does some time like he deserves, he will no doubt be educated by fellow inmates as to why it was a bad thing to do.
