Hey guys, I found out that a my sisters friends brother (thats a mouthful) is in a lot of trouble. Recently, a very drunk guy came up to him and threatened to kill him, and the brother (lets call him A) punched him. The drunk guy fell down and hit his head on the curb. This drunk guy is now in intensive care (I don't know how serious his condition is) and A has been arrested. A is now is quite a bit of bother and it looks like all the blame is falling onto him.
That pretty much all I know about the situation.
If you were A, what would you have done in his situation, and do you think his reaction was justified?
Personally, I would have tried to avoid the confrontation and I think punching the guy was an overreaction.
What about you guys?
