This Is Why You Mind Your Own F*&%ing Business At Train Stations

Some hard nut chick, possibly cut from the same cloth as the character that Kat Stewart (above) came up with when playing gangland wife Roberta Williams in Underbelly, has punched another woman in the face just for asking her to put out a cigarette at a Melbourne train station.

The 53-year-old Coburg woman was on platform three of the city centre station about 8pm on April 22 when she asked another woman to stop smoking.

The woman, who was standing with a female friend, refused and the 53-year-old picked up her belongings and begun to move away from the pair.

But as she went to walk away, the smoker punched her in the face giving her a broken nose and facial bruising, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said.

It raises interesting 'what would you do?' or 'what kind of citizen are you?' questions. Much the same as when that bikie dude shot 2 men who interceded when he was arguing with a stripper on the street, I think there are two schools of thought:

1. "I'm a stand up guy who doesn't rat and doesn't get involved in shit that's none of my business." Non-involvment.

2. "We're all living in a society here and I will always immediately go to the aid of a fellow citizen in need." Get involved, try to help.

I'm not saying one is right and the other is wrong..... I'm just saying.
