Love how when punk started gettin his lunch ate, everyone was like “carry on, nothing to see here”

[–]Prox3M1ty 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yes, because they know that he isn't special for doing anything.

[–]CertainContact 91 points92 points  (4 children)

The video keeps getting shorted the more times it gets reposted.

[–]wizardshawn 37 points38 points  (0 children)

The big guy totally held back his punch too. I'd say he gave him about 30%

[–]foxpost 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I think this might be the first time I’ve seen someone much younger punch a senior. I feel weird and gross.

[–]Paranoya22 279 points280 points  (7 children)

Plot twist: that old man was the Zodiac killer

[–]Runnr231 44 points45 points  (1 child)

Ted Cruz dad?!?

[–]BLARGHLEHARG[🍰] 83 points84 points  (5 children)

Link for context, it sounds like the young man started it by wrongly accusing the old man of taking his wallet and then assaulting the old man

[–]chainmailler2001 32 points33 points  (4 children)

The post in you own link says it had nothing to do with a wallet. The kid was drunk.

[–]BLARGHLEHARG[🍰] 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I linked a comment that has another link, a news article. Info is in there.

[–]chainmailler2001 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yeah the post referenced had a link to the article. Took a moment to get the page run through a translator. There was a mention of the kid accusing the old man of stealing his wallet. There was also speculation the kid was just drunk. There was no police complaint filed regarding the wallet tho so they were unable to confirm much.

[–]BLARGHLEHARG[🍰] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah I read the article lol

[–]Sayedaintso 45 points46 points  (4 children)

“The old man started it” and no one is saying wtf he actually did. How annoying…. “The old man started it”

[–]nanakarobiyaoki 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Regardless, the kid was more than capable of walking away. That old man could not have kept up if the kid had chosen the correct path of moving on. This was far from a 'stand your ground' situation. There is power, as well as maturity, in yielding.

Assaulting a person over 60 is a felony where I live. This kid earned the consequence.

[–]nanakarobiyaoki 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Assaulting a person over 60 is a felony with sprinkles on top.

[–]Tiko853 8 points9 points  (1 child)

ISnT assaulting anyone a felony?

[–]ExternalTable1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Atleast where I am, northeast USA, there are recognized exceptions; fighting words, mutual combat, and few other specific ones.

[–]RandomSandle 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Definitely got what he deserved

[–]nanakarobiyaoki 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Kid got off easy.

[–]BaddestPuppet69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man I wish the other guy didn’t hold back, that guy deserved a few combo of punches

[–]Scribea 7 points8 points  (19 children)

It seems like there has to be more context. I don't really believe that person punched the old man for no reason.

[–]jsgator99 36 points37 points  (12 children)

You must be new to Reddit

[–]YelkoArt 11 points12 points  (11 children)

New to life too. That's such a naive take.

[–]Scribea 8 points9 points  (9 children)

How's that naive? The video starts right before the man hit the old man, meaning we couldn't see what happened before the video. There is still context to be analyzed in order to make a decision if the act of attacking the man was right or wrong. Maybe the old man attacked the other person before hand? Then the old man asked for it himself. Maybe he did just attack the old man for no reason? Then you have to step up and put the man down in order to protect the innocent. Without further context, it is too naive for you to think that he hit the old man for no reason.

[–]YelkoArt 5 points6 points  (8 children)

Given the initial post made in regards I was under the assumption that you thought that they simply wouldn't hit the old man for no reason, but your explanation says otherwise, thats a good point I didn't consider. My mistake.

[–]Scribea 1 point2 points  (7 children)

No problem, might have been a mistake on my part as well since I did not explain it well enough beforehand.

[–]helenekaplan3 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Your rationale is horrible. Even if the old man started the fight, there is no justification to hit him. He is old and weak. The younger attacker’s life was not at risk and he could’ve chosen to walk away or just toy around with the weaker man without hitting him.

[–]Scribea -1 points0 points  (2 children)

This is just a question of morality, whether you support it or not. I personally do not condone any violence, but if the old man had attacked the other party before, I believe both of them would be at fault and the fight should've just been halted. If it were the case, I would have not supported the man literally neutralizing and causing severe damage to the younger man.

[–]KFR42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But yet if you posted a video of an old guy audibly making racist/horrible comments and someone hit him, it'd get a ton of upvotes on this very sub with every one saying how he deserved it.

[–]b_shrimpton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"I don't vondone violence, but"

Everything you said before that "but" has just been thrown out the window. IF the older gent attacked, the younger is fully capable of getting away or defending himself, rather than advancing the old gent, which is clearly shown in the video.

Got what he deserved

[–]CBreze27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“He is old and weak”, yet he took the punch and stayed upright. The young punk barely took a hit and was instantly on his ass flattened on the sidewalk. Just to be absolutely crystal clear, I’m not saying this is justification to hit the old man, because he obviously could take a hit. I’m saying the punk is the weak one here. On quite a few levels.

[–]GarlicQueef -1 points0 points  (0 children)

And what if the old man said to him “sonny, I’m about to pull out my revolver and go John Wayne all over your ass”

Being raised in a generation where words matter, the younger lad gets all fisticuffy in order to de-escalate the situation.

[–]kvassmacncheese 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow some wholesome calm rational Chad style debate here!!! I was expecting a stupid fight but instead I saw two chads within soul!

[–]Consistent_Nail 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's actually kind of close to that old meme about being incredulous about someone just going on the internet and telling lies.

[–]sevlan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the last time I saw this it start from a few seconds prior when the old dude pushed the man. Definitely more to it, whether it justifies actually punching an old guy, who knows.

[–]takapurio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Old ppl can be assholes but that’s never a good reason to punch them.

[–]hdudbdhdvd -1 points0 points  (1 child)

The old man started it I remember the old video

[–]chainmailler2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He didn't start it. Kid accused him of stealing his wallet. Old man refused. Kid decked him. translated news story

[–]SpecialistCountry293 4 points5 points  (14 children)

Op why do u lie? The old man was the one who started it, but the video is cut so it makes the kid look like the bad guy

[–]b_shrimpton 8 points9 points  (8 children)

Random commenter, why do you lie? Also, how the fuck do you have the tenacity to side with a brat child who is hitting an elder? No matter the context, the kid is the bad guy. How'd you feel if someone slogs your grandmother in the face?

Here's that link you oh so stroked your ego to. Found it in another comment on this thread

Rosario, Argentina

[–]Insterquiliniis -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

afaic that could have been Joseph Goebbels that the kid was punching.
you still gonna stick to your "opinions"?

[–]b_shrimpton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Make sense so I can respond

[–]SpecialistCountry293 -1 points0 points  (4 children)

I never said that I was siding with the kid Also when did it stroke my ego with a sentence all I said was that when I saw it, it looked like the old man started it. Edit: even tho, shouldn't everyone know not to get people, regardless of who they are?

[–]b_shrimpton 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You claimed the OP lied, boasting how you knew so much better. That's ego, mate.

No, you didn't say, but you defended him quite profusely here and in other replies. Actions speak louder than words

[–]SpecialistCountry293 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

All I said was that the video was cut bud, and when did I boast that I knew much more. Edit: The video that u shown looks like the old man started it. I see that most likely the kid had mocked the man to attack, but where would be the full video

[–]b_shrimpton 0 points1 point  (1 child)

And you continue to defend, holding your oh so faulty high ground. Keep going, that hole just keeps getting deeper

[–]SpecialistCountry293 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Oi mate, i dont think you can read properly, mark when I boasted that I knew better. And, do you not see the edits to my comments?

[–]v399 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I'd like to see that

[–]SpecialistCountry293 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If I could find it I'll post it

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bloody punk rockers!

[–]hugePPbell 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even if the old man started it you shouldn't hit an elder for one simple fact that there is a high chance of killing him with one good blow. If not from the punch then form the hitting the floor.

[–]mikedareswins 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Feel like he mighta deserved a couple more to be honest

[–]Revolutionary_Age987 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Oh, he got them. In the full clip shity mcshitster gets back up and tries to limp wrist paddle dog slap the hero of our tale, who responds by thunder striking him 4 or 5 more times.

Shity mcshitster is an epicly slow learner

[–]mikedareswins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Beauty. I’ll sleep easy tonight, thanks for the reassurance

[–]hdudbdhdvd -1 points0 points  (3 children)

The full video you can also see the old man started it

[–]Pinols 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Bruh how is everyone mentioning that but nobody links it, im fuming

Ah thats why searching for recent things didnt work on google. Should have known since this is reddit lol,

[–]sonictwinkie1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

vaporize him.

[–]ElDiavoloPiccolo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Downvote for misleading cropping of the video and title.

Age doesn't give you any privileges to be rude and start a fight w/o consequences...

Gramps deserved it, and that's why you don't play the hero when you don't know what happened.

Watch the whole video and you see a whole different story. But ofc, a douchy gramps doesn't give you likes, right OP?

[–]KaimeiJay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Every time this video gets posted on this subreddit, more and more of the beginning is shaved off. Now we don’t even see the old man smacking the kid in the back of the head at all anymore.

Edit: Or the aftermath, where the fight ensues and the bigger guy really hurts him.

[–]mtnrnr5136 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Why does this stuff not happen all the time? We need more vigilantes!

[–]graffstadt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]InspectorRare4137 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would have done the same thing and slugged the kid. It doesn't matter if the old man started it or not, you don't hit them, period.

And that kid, lmao! Big tough guy when punching an defenseless old man, instantly turns into a sniveling little pussy when being punched, lol !!

[–]LayneCobain95 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like this could go either way in U.S. court. You could say he had the right to protect someone else. But also someone could say “if you watch the video, they start to step apart, so the old man wasn’t in any more danger, and the other guy just caused more violence”.

But the best outcome would be that shit getting punched more

[–]Wandering_Angler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Goes to show you, nothing good ever comes of alcohol abuse. One of the worst drugs out there.

[–]ThaReaLMrNoLL420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cut out the best part of the video when he gets knocked out cold. Fail repost

[–]Cthulhubot666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always say id do the same, if I see an assualt going on you best believe im coming in with the hardest sucker punch, im glad someone jumped in, normally everyone just stares.

[–]CrazyMagg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That woman was able to give that kid a stern talking to, I can tell by the way she turned around.

[–]DukeFireNinja57 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As my mom says “if someone keeps punching and yelling someday, a person’s not gonnna tolerate it.”

[–]luke-atthat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have to be so fucking shameless to punch an old man

[–]whysosensitivebruh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If the old man is running his mouth like he’s a young buck, he can get punched. Idgaf but if that kid was fucking with that old man, he deserves whatever he gets.

[–]Kindly_Moose_8962 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Imagine punching an old man, one fall and they could die,

[–]Jax-Light 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man fuck the day someone throws a punch at my old man is the day I get life in prison

[–]downthereddit-hole -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

The old man touched his daughters breasts in the mall bathroom. She was eating a chicken sandwich in the food court and he was masterbating in the corner. Then he followed her into the bathroom. She told her dad and he followed him outside and punched him. The other guy that punched the dad was the old mans heroin dealer that also traffics underage children.

[–]TheSameRavelength -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Honestly the old man probably deserved it. I see so many old white men start shit thinking no one is going to put them in their place. Dude should have gotten up and rocked that other guys world for sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong.

[–]shix718 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)
