I dont as a general rule go for violence against women BUT ...
I think that when anyone does crap like this they cease to be of any particular gender/race/religion/sexuality and become a combatant, and as such in self defence they deserve a good punch in the guts. When they are left sucking wind on the sidewalk then they can be seen as gender/race/religion/sexuality.

She has done this before... A upstanding citizen who can't hold her liquor and hold a job to earn her keep.

People like Ms. Shaganash are a drain to society. Assaulting an innocent passerby?.... twice? Put her in jail for 120 days... no parole and make her do 1000 community service hours... manditory detox and alchol ban for 2 years. When will society get tough on these people?
