You hit me. You. hit. me.
If you hit that guy right now, that would be a crime.
Even if you were having a bad day.
Even if you were frustrated.
Even if you had some kind of responsibility for him and called it discipline.
It’d be illegal to hit him, because you’re frustrated, or because you’re scared. Or for his own good. But you know who wasn’t illegal to hit…
You’re what 200 lbs. You were there to teach and protect. A 200lbs man vs. a 45 lb child.
