If it shouldn't have happened then it shouldn't have happened. If he's wrong then he's wrong. There is no justification for it. End of story.
Exactly. Even if the first punch was thrown to get his son to safety, then after he apologized because he didn't know what was going on, that wasn't the case. This guy was a time-bomb before, a reactionary during and unhinged after. There was no reasonable out cause playing with people like that, and his son and friends were not much better. This man is an instigator, who used his size and age to create a large problem where there wasn't one and seriously hurt youth.
