Observationally, the person being rushed around interprets it as disrespectful or as aggression. I think what happens is people spend time in the can and know fights typically start with someone bum rushing them. Then we disperse them into a congested city that never sleeps. I think it is more likely to be a pervasive byproduct of a horrible criminal justice system than it is to be caused by COVID. You never hear of people who were normal pre-COVID doing these things. We’re predisposed as humans to blame COVID because that enables us to think these issues will solve themselves on their own when they keep getting worse. If you notice, people only ever blame COVID for non-medical issues they don’t want to resolve.
