    It is relevant to the perpetrator because he will be required to prove up any affirmative defense of self defense by a preponderance of the evidence.

    There is no reason to debate issue or hypothetical scenarios not supported by the evidence. Its completely outside the scope of the facts presented. It is not that just I find those scenarios unsupported by the facts and thus unlikely but that the objectively reasonable person would feel the same. In other words it comes off as "crazy talk".
    I never said anything that was outside the scope of the facts. This is a dog that hates minorities, the owner hired a minority employee, the dog bit said employee, dog continues to aggressively bark after said employee for at least one year after the biting incident, owner makes no attempt to separate dog from employee, employee threatened to take matters into his own hands.

    It's possible that the employee can show a pattern of aggravated harassment.

    And again, we don't know if the owner deliberately chains the dog to where the employee has to do his daily activities.

    And I was not debating anything hypothetical, I was trying to make you realize that there may be more to the story than you are privy to.

    The acts of the employee and the acts of the employer are not so separate as you apparently assume. Often not only are there procedural requirements, often including written notice of a demand to abate the nuisance but there is a general balancing of equities or addressing the matter under the totality of the circumstances. For example there is a rule of equity or equitable defense in civil cases that states "those seeking equity must do equity" or "equity must come with clean hands".

    ENTP OT again. Arguing whether an adoptive parent is narcissistic seems a mighty stretch on this one, even for ENTPs.

    Wrong. Not narcissistic, but, manifestation of narcissistic love.

    Secondly, if you're that bothered by the actual argument, challenge it, the actual argument.

    If you're that bothered by what you see as "ENTP antics derailing a thread", then, go ahead, keep on using a post to complain.
    Or....hit the report button.

    Or just make a random post about nothing. You forgot that option.

    Or the option of posting a funny picture...lets not forget this fall-back. Part of the restitution should be getting the dog its own parrot and a pirate hat. Edit: Darn I don't know how to resize the first on this guy will have to do.

    Do only ENTPs go off-topic?

    I rarely ever do that, so are you judging me for my actions or my type for existing?

    And I don't think my argument was a stretch, or I wouldn't have made it.

    I really think that calling a person who would attack a chained dog a "man" is stretching things a bit far... mutilating animals for barking, no matter for what reason, is just fucked up
