The video recorded dates back to May 1st, 2015. It was posted by a lady from Virginia Beach by the name Ashlyn Young.
The video had a caption which reads: “That’s someone’s mother. Kids have lost the respect that they had for the parent.”
The video clip was very short and only lasts less than a minute. However, its content is just enough to make anyone understand that the disrespectful teenager and a woman had a heated disagreement. The intensity of their argument increases as the two were coming closer to one another. He issued threats to the woman for a reason best known to himself.
Although the cause of the argument could not be extracted from the short footage, one thing that came out clear was that the boy threatened to spit on the woman’s face moments just before the beginning of the video. The woman could be heard daring him to try spitting on her face. She also seemed courageous, and it is just unfortunate the young man did not read it.
He continued spiting provocative words and even swore to knock her out if she dares him again.
The woman showed high-level of confidence and was not afraid at all to confront him. She invited the young man to lay his hands on her so that she could use her last line of defence to protect herself.
Luckily, the woman had a way of protecting herself against such disrespectful teenagers. The young man, however, never sensed any danger in the way the woman trusted herself.
When the young man approached her close enough to hit, she quickly reached out for her purse. She fished out a can of pepper spray, and of course, the boy never knew what was coming on his way. She never hesitated to use it. She aimed right at the teenager’s face and did her work perfectly well!
As you had anticipated, the teenagers made few steps backwards in utter shock and pain. That gave the woman a chance to walk away marking the end of the harassment and her encounter with the young man. Thanks to the pepper spray can that has just solved the conflict.
The video went viral on Facebook. It has attracted many likes and shared over 40,000 times. The reaction of the viewers was different. Although many said that she did just right to use her pepper spray to defend herself, some have the contrary opinion. They blamed her for being the source of everything. From their thoughts, they think that the woman contributed a lot in getting the matter out of hand so that she could use her pepper spray.
One person commented by saying, “She was never involved in the instigation of any kind. She issued a warning, but the teenager proceeded by threatening her. Get the difference right and stop making these kids be bullied the whole complaining about it in school.”
After the woman applied her pepper spray, many people who were using the same subway congratulated her for defending herself. Others watched in great shock!
Out of the story, one can conclude that the teenager learned a lesson that he would never forget. Maybe, he will change to be a good person after the ordeal.
Was it right for the woman to use her pepper spray as the last line of defence? What do think of the kids who are harassing strangers on the subway? Let us hear what you have to say by dropping your comments on this post. Also,
