If they do and decide to resort to criminal attack, then I will press
charges (and, if necessary, physically defend myself). They will then
end up in a place where they won't be allowed to use a cell phone,
which will solve the problem of their obnoxious use of a cell phone on
public transportation.

Most people are intelligent enough to understand this progression.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Most people are also smart enough to
understand that, depending on the police officers who arrive to deal
with the situation, *they* may decide to take you in as well, and
lock you up. Often times, when there is a street brawl, the cops just
say 'let the judge work it out when they get to court' and lock you
both up in the meantime. What makes you think the cop will *necessarily*c
consider you to be the good guy and the other fellow the bad guy?
