Walking Near the Vance Memorial

"That was really fucked up when I was walking near the Vance Memorial (where tons of people are eating outside and playing instruments on the sidewalk) and an older man with a rolly suitcase was walking toward me. It looked as if we would bump into each other if one of us didn't move so I scooted out of the way at the last minute. As he passed me, he kicked me very hard in the shin and said "get outta my way bitch." I was so hurt and surprised I had no idea how to react. Plus, I didn't want to jeopardize my safety anymore. However, all of the people eating and sitting 20 feet away could have done something. At least one man asked me, "Did he just kick you?" I guess he was trying to ask "are you okay?" which would have been better."
