hit a handicapped guy in an old person scooter if he hit you first.

Over the weekend at the restaurant I work at two people got in an argument. A guy in a handi-scooter, who can walk but not well at all, goes to the front of the line and waits while someone behind him keeps telling him to get to the back. The guy in the scooter leans over to him, half stands up and slaps the other guy. The other guy retaliates by punching him in the face, knocking him out of his seat. Gave him a bloody nose and people helped him back onto the scooter. Then police come and collect statements, blah blah blah.

I only saw the security camera footage, but everyone at work was saying the guy who punched him was justified in doing so. I was the only one who thought the guy was a complete asshole, even if scooter guy was being a dick and deserved it.

What do you think?

I wouldn't do that but don't blame the other guy for punching him. Otherwise this guy's gonna go around slapping everyone

It was a bit audacious for the guy to just park himself in the front of the line.

And both guys overreacted.

So my conclusion is that both of these guys were jackasses. Poke a jackass with a stick and your gonna have a bad time. Have a jackass poke another jackass with a stick... now we know what happens.

Depends on the way the guy asked. if he was polite, the handicapped guy was out of order, but the retaliation was out of order as well. be the bigger man, as they say.

Nothing wrong with it if it's legitimate self defense.


I wouldn't necessarily punch someone in the face just because they hit me one time, but I would if they kept doing it.

I believe in equality, meaning I'd **** up an old handicapped man if he disrespected ya boy

I accept this scooter mans challenge to a duel and slap him back.

Punching people in the face is rarely a good idea. That being said, when you let people do whatever you want because they're disabled, they'll start doing whatever they want. The guy in the scooter slapping the other person had nothing to do with his disability, he was just being a dick.

I take care of severely disabled people for a living, and you can tell which ones were babied, because they had the same attitude as everyone's least favorite celebrities; they act like jerks without even stopping to think, and without any expectation of consequences, because they're used to being more or less untouchable.

As much as I never thought I'd say this, good job to that guy for punching that handicapped prick in the face.

Both of them were being idiots about it, you can tell from watching the video that they're both just two pricks who happened to meet up at the wrong time. Both are pretty notorious around the area too, scooter guy is indeed an ass. He just drives into the doors to open them and he's broken three panes of glass from doing it, which is why I think people don't feel sorry for him at all.

It really doesn't matter if he was justified in hitting the scooter guy. He still was a fucking idiot. He should have just had you call the cops on the man.
#23
Yeah I would have hit him back maybe not as hard as the guy did but definitely hard enough to make him realise he's not untouchable.

I'd deck the dude too.

We hear so much handi-cappable jargon, and yet it seems that alot of people feel bad for those less fortunate, a double edged sword. The man should have took his ass to the back of the line and waited his turn, first and foremost.

I get really sick of equal but better attitudes.

Cop: "So what seems to be the trouble?"

Guy: "That handicapped guy on a scooter beat me up and also cutted me in line"

Cop: "LOL. Get the fuck outta here."

People who don't want to get charged for punching a handicapped guy in the face, that's who.

They can't react that way. If someone attacks your person, cops are legally required to do something. Otherwise, they're not following the law.

Yes, it's ridiculous, but it'd be better to call the cops on some asshat handicap guy for "assault" than to assault him yourself.


Obviously, the best response would be to just walk it off. But which is the lesser of two evils? Calling the cops over the scooter guy, or punching him and risking getting charged yourself?

It's probably only okay to punch somebody if what they did hurt you. Like there's a difference between self defense and purely reacting out of anger.

I also presented a third option: shrugging it off and ignoring it.
