    Yes most people would abide by the posted rules/law. But she didn't. However the guy has no right to insist, he has no actual authority. She was in the wrong and one has to leave it at that. If he was that worried he should have called the police and reported a crime.
    One assumes there are park wardens and the like to enforce rules in that park.

    Had he reminded her about the rules, left it at that and minded his own business. She would still have a job and I wouldn't be wasting my time on here.

    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.

    She should sue him for making her lose her job, right?

    You should probably sue for that.

    What are you dribbling about you idiot. He can insist if he wants to. she can ignore him if she wants to. The guy wasn't physically intimidating her. In fact you don't even know to what extent he 'insisted'.
    He's quite within his rights to take public domain video and it certainly couldn't be construed as threatening her life FFS.
    As far as losing the dog, did you see how she treated it? That's why she lost it.
    I bet she's having a good cry somewhere about what a victim she is.

    I wouldn't be surprised if her employer absolutely LEAPED at the chance to fire her. People don't just become nutters out of the blue, she probably has been annoying for a long time and finally came out in the open about it.

    Sounds like they couldn't get the harpy out of the door quick enough.

    Well, using snipers would certainly prevent possible damage to their knees.

    Even for you cyrille ... that is a weird thing to say.

    The ABC News, where this story originally came from, is a an Australian Government owned News Broadcaster ... I don't think they are about to allow any bestiality headline, stated or implied.

    It seems the "Central Park Karen" is a bit of a stalker as well.
