Well said Derby. Teaching people appropriate behaviour is a very important part of our early development but it isn't going to have an affect on people who are not bound by social norms or respect for other people. There are sick people out there...they are not bound by what "we should" be able to do. That is why it is up to us to be our own first line of defence.
