I think that sympathy and judgement should be given on a person to person basis.
For example; if you see a person smoking, it could be their last cigarette, perhaps their first, it is possible that somebody close to them died and they are just relieving some stress. A cigarette does not determine who somebody is.

If you see a person horribly drunk, it could be that they never drink and it is their birthday or something. Alcohol can change people but does not determine who they are.

For obese people there are some issues that can cause obesity, although the "false" issues far outweigh the legit ones such as thyroid cancer (my mom had this), you really can't tell what caused it.
I think people have a bad habit of assuming the worst in people. I.E. When somebody speeding I always assume that they are just douche bags. It could be that they are late for their children's birthday or something..
The solution? I think people should take into account more than one possibility for what or who they are witnessing and give neither sympathy or pity until they can reach a proper judgement.

That is probably the most rational thing in the entire comment section.
