So much going one here.
First: don't be rude, respect other people's personal space. Show others the common courtesy you want to be shown. In other words, don't be an asshole
Second: NEVER think that no one will hurt you because you are old, small, young, female, handicap, or in anyway a typical person no one SHOULD pick on. Some people just don't care
Third: Assume the best but ALWAYS be prepared for the worse
Fourth: first use your words if you get in an uncomfortable situation. This was NOT self defense. There was plenty of room and time for preclusion. This was an assault
Fifth: don't be an asshole, it's worth repeating
We have all been in both these situations. We are in a hurry, and it seems to take forever. Crowding someone because you feel entitled does nothing but irritate people. There is nothing that young man could do to speed up the process.
We have all been in a situation where we were crowded, shown a lack of respect, or any other perceived wrong. USE YOUR WORDS!!!! One could also resort to chemical warfare (insert disgusting smell), or fake coughing (spreading the plague) if one does not feel comfortable confronting a rude person, for whatever reason (respecting your elders being one).
Pretty much everyone has fantasied about punching someone rude or mean. If you can't control yourself, you can't control others!!! You can't physically hurt someone in response to havng your feelings hurt.
He may have actually killed that woman. She is old, much more fragile and susceptible to injuries. Was it worth for him to spend the rest of his days in jail? Not counting having to emotionally live with it? Unless he is a die hard narcissist, or psychopath, in which case he does not care (re-read the second point)
Be smart, stay safe!
