Never let another person scare you into changing your life. I am so glad you followed through with pressing charges. My only brother was murdered by a random person because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The thing was...prior to stabbing my brother he had attacked another person two months earlier but this person did not follow through with having him charged. I always think maybe things would have worked out different if he had originally been good on you for having the courage to make a stand.
I hope you are feeling ok. It was hard for me to go anywhere public for a while for fear of it happening to me. But after facing the killer in court I decided not to let this mongrel take my life away.
Like you said...go different places and maybe at a different time.
Take care!! :)

Oh my good lord, Karin-Ann!!! That is absolutely disgusting behaviour, you poor thing!! I'm absolutely stunned that someone would overreact that badly and hit a WOMAN too!!! Far out.. Well done for pressing charges and not letting the b*stard get away with it!!

I understand help6363 that it is annoying but if they don't ask and then find you later you did say it, makes the case a lot harder. Plus if you have already gone to court you may end up with the courts costs AND being charged yourself for making false claims (or something like that) and trust me the cops think it is stupid too, but again they have to ask.

Oh and I forgot to say, how terrible that is so horrific and I hope you do sue him as well, and remember to sue him for the cost of the dog walker as well :wink:

Im totally shocked at this Karin Ann!!! I just dont understand where anyone gets all that anger from that they could fly at a stranger over something so seemingly trivial in the grand scheme on things. And in front of children! Such a big man hitting a women. You have to feel for this heros wife because if he could do that to a stranger, imagine what she would cop.

I hope you can recover from this and not let it stop you on your weightloss journey.

You poor thing. I am outraged. All of the girls have given you great advice. Don't let someone else have an influence over your life. You should be so proud for pressing charges. It is a very scary thing... But you are brave. No one should get away with that kind of behaviour.

OMG I can hardly believe it. There are certainly some weirdo's in the world. Glad to see you still plan on keeping up with your goals. Don't let him interfere with that or he wins! It is great that you are pursuing it too.
