Wow

by Michael Jay In reply to I can't believe this

I can't believe it as well, it was the talk at the lunch table today, being that it was right here where I live.

But the crazy folks are everywhere.

They're everywhere

And worse, they seem to be growing in number.

I'd be interested to know how crowded the grocery store was when this happened, and if anyone overheard/witnessed this occur.

I'd like to think that someone would have stepped in on the behalf of the child & mother.

I would think...

by jck In reply to They're everywhere

the mother would have stepped in.

My mother would have. Of course, my mother was 5'11. :^0

I was talking more along the lines...

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to I would think...

...of 3rd party onlookers. Did a stock person help, butcher (lots of fine carving tools could have come in handy), fellow shopper, etc? A random weirdo doesn't concern me as much as the way the general populace reacts/responds. (i.e. apathy=bad)

I won't second guess the mom's response, since everyone reacts different when directly confronted by a threat.

yeah

by jck In reply to I was talking more along ...

But so much for motherly protectiveness.

And yeah, it'd have been a cool ending if the butcher had come out and whacked off his arm or something. :)

Cut off the arm, a man eats with the other hand

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to yeah

Jab at his brain steam, and all of society benefits.

I think I read that in the Bible somewhere!

yeah

by jck In reply to Cut off the arm, a man ea ...

But cut off both arms, and he's likely to bleed to death.

Besides, I wouldn't wanna jam his brain stem. That would keep him from feeling the pain.

I'd want the ba$tard to suffer.

Yeah -- I was thinking along those lines

by The Scummy One In reply to They're everywhere

If I was there and had put it together in my head, I am sure I would have stepped up to the plate.

witnesses

by GSG In reply to They're everywhere

Yes, there were witnesses. The story I read said that they saw him hit the child and while the mom yelled for security, they "kept him from leaving the scene".

Plus, this was at WalMart, I think. They have cameras all over the place, so maybe they caught it on tape.

Normally, I'm against suing for every little thing, but this is one case where if I were that mom, I'd file a civil suit and take everything he has in this life, AND the next.

I don't have kids, but if that were on of my nephews when they were small, that man would have been crying like a little girl and begging the police to save him from me. That is, if he could still talk when the police got there. Of course, I'm tall, and imposing, and have a temper that's been known to cause scorch marks with just a glare.
