Think about that. You have a 72 year old man who should be enjoying his retirement and his last remaining years, who still works and has very limited (or no) use of one side of his body. This man still did all of these things

Eddie- dead on again. This old guy is probably still working at the that age because the liberal -socialist politicians we now have force us all to pay more taxes to allow the welfare-scum, like this idiot & his family of breeders to prosper without doing anything productive. The problem is the welfare system that allows people 1/3 his age
to lay around like blood-sucking leeches. Obviously, they don't object to slavery when it's the working class of America suffering to support these human parasites. It still pisses me off to the point that I'm concerned if this a$$hole was pointed out to me in the store, that I might be unable to NOT go to sporting goods, put a bat in my cart & stalk this low-life son-of-a-b!tch until I had the chance to crack him across the forehead with a well set home run swing. Does this make you uneasy, it does me too. But he deserves it.

No, the problem is that fools like you are allowed to get online and post. LOL

I'll assume that this post is from either a) some 15 year old idjut whose opinion doesnt mean much anyways or b) some "young baller thug gangsta" ...again, whose opinion really doesnt mean much.

That said...

Is that how your mamma raised you? My guess is that you (and the guy who hit that guy) come from a repressive family....mom was strict and daddy was stricter...or maybe a drunk. Maybe picked on as a kid. Or maybe molested by an uncle or something. SOMETHING had to happen for you to make a post like that and for the guy to have sucker punched that guy like that..... Normal folks dont feel that way or do things like that.

So no, Gertude, you are not normal.

Not saying that some elderly folks dont frustrate me....god knows some of them DO have the "I am entitled" attitude. But that last sentiment can be said about many people from other age groups too.

There are many times throughout the day that I would liek to strangle some moron who does something STUPID or who I feel "dissed" me.

But...someone bumps you so you are entitled to knock someone out?

As human beings we have been blessed with the ability to know right from wrong.

For most of us, its not a huge decision to know that a young guy sucker punching a 72 year old man is wrong even if the old guy is asking for it.

For others, it is more of a challenge...probably due to a mental deficiency.

And THAT is the real problem.

I mean geezuz....how much of a coward is a guy who beats up a frail elderly person for no reason?

Message to the guy who punched that guy: No one thinks you are a thug/baller...they all think you are a mentally unstable coward who picks on those weaker than himself.

Oh wow....my idol. LOL

AMEN white lightening.

Couldn't have said it better.

So many people think they are entitled its sickening and I too am tired of it.

Just curious -- was it ever confirmed if the guy who hit the old guy was on welfare, etc? Or was he just an average guy?

I know from another person that he is in 'recovery' from drugs and alcohol, supposedly in 'recovery', I should say, his actions are not those of one in 'recovery'. So there is a history of drug and alcohol abuse there, anyway. I myself do not know this person.

I say, push the bastard down the steps at the police station. Stomp on his fingers...
Actually White Lightning's thoughts sum it up best.. Homerun swing to his forehead.
If the %#*hole disappeared today, it would make my day. This idiot doesn't have the nads to do this to someone his equal. I don't care if he is a recovering whatever, he shouldn't have been doing that either. I say make the bastard an invalid.

This poor 72 yr senior citizen is a recovering stroke victim. These are the ones in recovery that deserve our time.

You're a big boy now, do what you think you should do. But, don't expect everyone to stand back &
not get involved. It's possible too that there could be one old guy & one punk thug both going
to the hospital. And a 'good samaratin' or two
disappearing into the crowd. Never can tell.

first of all I don't want an old geezer wishing me a good day , maybe I want a bad day once in a while, That 72 year old fart should be home or in a retire home someone younger might want that job. I would have knocked his dentures out too. he has no business working, if he doesn't have it now he never will. I would have kicked him in his dried up nuts. let's get these old people out of the work force and get some younger blood working for 7.50 @ hour. These old people have the nerve.
