That's why the Blade defending this guy doesn't make sense.

New York is trying to make it a felony for prison inmates to spit on
guards.  "[Prison guards wonder] if they'll bring home hepatitis, HIV
or tuberculosis to their families," an assemblyman said.  (Cite:

Missouri has also introduced a similar bill.  "The bill would allow
Class D felony charges - punishable by up to four years in prison - for
inmates who expose others to bodily fluids."  (Cite:

But now folks want to claim it's no big deal to spit on lesbians on the
street?

Spitting is an assault, and frankly I think it's offensive to quibble
over the VICTIMS' right to retaliate.  They could punch the guy?  Hit
him with their handbags?  Stabbing him, though, is just flat-out wrong?

You worry about over-reacting the next time somebody attacks YOU while
you're minding your own business on a New York street.
