That was my first thought also. People who haven't ordered any food don't randomly sit close to strangers in places with other empty seats unless they're planning to snatch something.

Not every asshole or mentally-ill person is a criminal.

Man was going through a divorce and was meeting the ex so she could pick up the kids from visitation ... He found out the ex has a boyfriend, so ... he slides into the booth before the ex arrives and SIL would have made a nice “Who was that bimbo?” conversation.

Sometimes a single person sitting at a booth may want the entire space of the table not just to eat, but maybe read a newspaper/book, pull out their laptop computer, etc. In college I would eat at the student union and would sometimes go there just to read notes or textbook before an exam the next hour. About 10% of the time I would get some stranger I have never met before to decide to sit there with me. It usually takes less than two minutes before they pull out their bible with one sentence or paragraph highlighted in yellow that they fell defines their entire life and they want to spend the next hour discussing that with you and scheduling a time on the weekend where they can discuss it more in depth for at least eight hours.

This exact situation is what the phrase "Go fuck yourself, asswipe" was tailor made for.

But every criminal is an asshole or mentally-ill?

An argument could be made to that possibility.
