Perhaps you are getting mixed up with America where pedestrians don't have the absolute right to walk on the roads.
The pedestrian was crossing the road and started across with plenty of time for the car to react, there was a queue immediately ahead so the car wasn't going to get anywhere anyway but the driver was too intent on scaring a pedestrian to notice that probably. The car purposely got as close to the pedestrian as possible, in fact it might have made contact.
The pedestrian had walked 25 feet in a straight line, the car was about 100 feet away from the pedestrian when he stepped onto the road
I'd be annoyed if a car got that close to me, wouldn't you?
What I am saying is that both are at fault for their different actions however the car took an unreasonable, inconsiderate and dangerous action which initiated the problem.

There is nothing wrong with knowing your rights is there or are you a believer in a lawless society?
