If a bully provokes someone, and that someone takes the bait, the law regards the bully as the innocent party. This I know from personal experience.

(So, I guess that means the U.S. stole Texas fair and square.)
I agree with Kate when it comes to the NFL. I am the world's biggest Bears' fan and watch a lot of NFL games. Often the refs seem to miss what the instigator did, and the guy who fights back ends up getting the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
