...on something I saw today. I was on the bus on my way to work, it was quite a crowded bus and the journey takes us through a substantial Asian sector of the city. We stopped at some traffic lights where a large group of Muslim men were stood talking and the man sat in front of me (tbh he look like a tramp his long hair and clothes were filthy) picked up his walking stick and holding it like a gun proceeded to pretend to shoot these men. Had it been on tv in a sketch show it might have been funny but I just thought it was very strange. Wondered what other people opinions might be on this? If you saw someone do this would you laugh would you say something to him?

Probably laugh and think what a strange man. No need to say anything to him, just causing a scene.

I would probably just laugh and be glad that he isn't holding a real gun.

I'd assume he's probably drunk/drugged, got mental issues, etc and not say a thing.

If it was a kid doing it or someone that looked presentable I'd probably say something

Wouldn't be surprised if he was an undercover racist.

Look at him in a confused and slightly concerned manner.

I think regardless of the people it was aimed at, it's not really socially acceptable behaviour. I wouldn't laugh, I think I'd be shocked to be honest. But as to whether I'd say something, it would depend on the person doing it!
