Let me downvote this post.Actually you're very much not. You're interpreting what you see. A "comforting" hand, a nod.Really? You want to pretend that people have been saying Bramati rushed down and emptied his pockets? Come off it, please.
I'm stating what you can see, followed by "as if" or "like". That is an interpretation, but not an assumption. If you don't know the difference between an interpretation and an assumption, that's on you.
