An old man in his late 70's who has ran a road side BBQ restaurant for my entire life gets charged with Battery for asking someone to move his large truck from blocking his parking lot during the lunch rush.
Heck, I would have done more than whacked him with a walking stick.
So now Hot has committed suicide. I am so sick of big government. What about Hot's rights? He had been there for decades. Now he is gone.

I do not know what happened between those two but I can relate. I had several businesses on a road traveled by big rigs and I do not know how many times truckers would pull in and then act like they owned the place. Trucks left for days while they visited friends, waited on a load, etc. And never once while doing business with me. Hot had a sign that said "no truck turn around". The trucker said that he was waiting to get a tire fixed and he was in the sleeper. Ever try to wake up a sleeping trucker? I have. Its hard to do. Gotta knock loud. Then the trucker probably thought that the rubber piece on the end of cane Hot was using to knock was "assalting" his rig. Then it escalated. Why didn't the trucker just ask permission to trespass instead of thinking it was ok? Put yourself in Hot's place and imagine how you would feel if some careless individual blocked your drive with a vehicle and thought it was his birthright to do so.
