I live in a different cultural environment, so I cannot really tell if there's a chance that every annoying asshole is likely out for blood or after your belongings, and thus calls for use of methods of this magnitude. But I can't help feeling that there's a taste of overreaction from Aphex's side.
Like, did they look like they were out looking for shit to rob, possibly packing a gun and maybe high on something, or do normal well-managing students abuse and rob people too? Or are people just friggin paranoid about everyone being a candidate for murder/pedophilia/whatever?
Not like I don't know what it feels like to be threatened. I used to carry a butterfly knife with me a few years back, after receiving kill threats from a couple drug addicts because I let cops know about them having just raped an unconscious woman. I'm just glad I never had to use the mentioned knife.
But, if you really DO need to get your guard up and reach for something to poke people with every time someone's being a nuisance, then I understand. And MAN am I glad that I can normally walk the streets in peace, and that most harassing retards get the message when I tell them to fuck off.
