The case of Ana Oros

I didn’t imagine that in this case too, someone would be able to say that it was the woman’s fault. It just wouldn’t have occurred to me. If someone had been attacked by a bear in the forest, you can certainly partly say that the man is to blame, that he is practically walking on the territory of the wild animal. But even here the term blame doesn’t fit… you can’t tell someone to stay at home if they like to walk in the woods, especially since they’ve probably been there a thousand times before and nothing happened. Maybe three or four times he met the bear and the bear left. Or the man, or both. A violent encounter of this type, unless the man provokes the animal, is very rare and is almost an accident. Only if the bear kills a hunter do we return to the paradigm of guilt.
Which fault falls, of course, on the hunter.

The story of Ana Oros (I spoke with her at several running events) does not even fit into the logic of the Buddhist fable with the frog and the scorpion, because an urban running route that contains a section with a pack of dogs is not a given of fate , a divine or evolutionary arrangement. We don’t play Piticot and go through the silver forest. Or, so that generations other than X will understand, it’s not like Monopoly and we pass through the purple area, where another player has hotels. It’s like blaming a peaceful protester for taking a stick to the head from a masked man at a demonstration.

Packs of dogs that bite or gendarmes that use violence simply shouldn’t exist because theoretically in a normal social space someone makes sure they don’t exist. And that someone has a responsibility in cases like this. From the smallest to the largest. However, I predict that it will be a case similar to the one from Colectiv, easier to bury because it does not have that magnitude. I mean, not enough died.

LE: I walk a bit through the woods behind the garden where there are always dung and bear tracks. See what you say about me tomorrow…if it is.
