    Antagonizing

    Advertisements
    I was watching Judge Judy and the case involved this girl who (apparently) antagonized this chick to the point that she flipped out and broke a bunch of her own stuff.

    The girl who broke her stuff wanted the antagonizer to pay the damages for all the stuff she broke. Her reasoning was that the antagonizer knew the "victim" had anger management or something and should have known better than to argue with her.

    Do you think the antagonizer should pay for the stuff the girl broke?

    Yes, if the aggressor went into the situation knowing that the other person had anger management issues then he or she should be responsible for at least part of the damages
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    My answer would depend on what, exactly, the antagonizer was doing.......but, for the most part, my answer is, "No".

    I guess I should have included that She was trying to give her advice I think. It was pretty confusing what exactly happened.

    What was the ruling?

    I voted no. How can you prove that her anger was solely and directly resultant from the provocation? There will always be confrontations in life, it's up to her to be able to manage her anger effectively.

    Judy pretty much laughed at her. You know how Judge Judy is. She told her to suck it up and not have nice things.

    I would say no. One shouldn't have to walk on eggshells because someone else can't control their anger.
