While I appreciate the outrage shown toward the admittedly morally reprehensible behavior of the woman in this video, I must point out that your outrage is misdirected. The real problem is the illegitimate concept known as "public property." This woman's conduct is a completely-predictable consequence of the premises upon which "public" property is justified.
