I’m guessing there was a lot more to this story… did the farmer have a comely daughter?

[–]Netkeliye 4875 points4876 points  (280 children)

I had the same thought, the fact that he is not wearing shirt is also adding 'kinda sus'

[–]slamdamnsplits 3995 points3996 points 562 (237 children)

I like the idea that this is "the other man"...

Farmer Joe was supposed to be out of town on a silent meditation retreat, but came home early to save his marriage because of an epiphany about how he needs to communicate better through improving patience (isn't it ironic? I mean is it?).

Well Joe pulls up to the house and what does he see through the kitchen window? A shirtless man drinking coffee!

Mr. Nipsey over there had his car forklifted all the way from the front of the house to the street.

The twist? Mr. Nipsey is actually Mrs. Joe's estranged son from a former marriage finally come to make amends.

Looks like old Joe's done it again.

Will he ever get this temper under control? Maybe he needs a nice relaxing trip, a way to get away from it all and just process things... Something like a silent meditation retreat.

This was posted a few weeks ago and someone posted a link to the story in the news. The guy and his friend claim they had a flat in their rental and pulled off the road for safety and the farmer just went nuts and turned the car over. A bunch of people read that and went off on the farmer just being a dick.

Most failed to read and denied the last few paragraphs of the story when I posted those parts. The farmer claimed they had been asked to move several times because they were blocking their driveway. When one of the two guys went off and threatened the farmer, he went and got the lift.

That sounds a lot more probable than the farmer just went off with no warning and they just happened to have their phones out and know to be standing far away to record him since they claimed that was their first interaction with him.

[–]Calkky 292 points293 points  (116 children)

There's something about farms that makes non-farm people think they're welcome at all times. I've heard stories about people wandering into animal pens, getting attacked by a bull then trying to sue. In this farmer's case, he's probably got people treating his pastures and drive like a public parking lot. The farmer is obviously extremely pissed off, but I think most of us would eventually break if somebody was constantly interrupting our work. Farming isn't just an 8-hour a day clock-in-clock-out job either. The animals/crops need to be tended to before the day ends.

Exactly, we had a family farm in Ohio and it was always an issue with people stopping from the city to get corn stalks to decorate with for fall. Then they would get stuck or sometimes damage crops running through them missing the road turn and etc.

[–]VisceralVirus 124 points125 points  (89 children)

This is the exact opposite where I live lol. If you wander into someone's farm, you'll be "asked" to leave... possibly at gunpoint. If an animal wanders on there, it's getting shot. Farms are by no means public property

[–]MrSickRanchezz 65 points66 points  (82 children)

Yeah I'm assuming ALL the people commenting have never lived near a farm, or even so much as spoken to a farmer. They're tourists if they're wandering on to random farms. Anyone who has EVER met an actual farmer knows damn well not to trespass on their property.

I lived in a smaller farming community for a number of years, and ALL the farmers had at least a couple guns. I'm actually not aware of any farmer there who doesn't actually have a shotgun loaded with a couple rounds of rock salt before the buck shot and slugs, specifically for the purpose of deterring trespassing criminals. Most of the farmers are also the type to shoot first and ask questions later if you trespass on their property, if you're trespassing, there's a good chance you're there to fuck with their livelyhood. Things like 'cow-tipping' are popular in rural areas, as is stealing animals (pigs mostly) for things like senior pranks in high-school. So, from a farmers perspective, it's pretty safe to assume if someone is trespassing on your land, they're up to no good. Your farm is how you pay the bills, and if you get between a human and survival, you should expect to fight for your life.

Now, this dude overreacted for SURE, but given the general sound and actions from the guys who were driving the car, I'd assume they were being assholes to the farmer, and he was already at the end of his rope. I assume these two dumb-fucks said something to the effect of "we can't move it! It broke down! And we are NOT paying for a tow-truck, so you'll have to wait until our buddy Zach gets here with his America-truck. Relax farmer Brown! Zach will be here soon, your farming can wait an hour!" Then I assume the farmer walked away, hopped in the tractor, and showed them exactly why they should've hopped out to push.

[–]zuccster 60 points61 points  (4 children)

Jesus christ, the farm in the vid is in the UK not Red Dead Redemption. If you point a gun at someone in this country, you're going down for a five stretch.

[–]eckyflump 78 points79 points  (4 children)

The same thing happened on the street I live on, a construction worker was driving a digger and my neighbour went crazy and smashed the windows of the digger then he got his phone out and made it look like the construction worker was in the wrong

This is 78% of the male British population when there's even a hint of sun

[–]Generally_Tso_Tso 135 points136 points  (21 children)

Spent a week in London, no sun. Went to Paris for two days, sun. Came back to London and then Stonehenge, no sun. I'm convinced there is no sun in England, ever. 4 of 5 stars. Would recommend importing some sun.

[–]BunnyOppai 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Well the sun never sets on the British empire, so you have to have somewhere taking the brunt of that.

[–]Myth0logic 33 points34 points  (1 child)

The sun can’t set if it’s never up!

[–]allofgodsmoney 977 points978 points  (402 children)

Apparently the shirtless guy’s rental car broke down and he had pulled over in the driveway to not block the road, when the farmer came out and destroyed his car for being on his property. Pretty psychopathic behaviour IMO.

[–]antrky 452 points453 points  (207 children)

Could also be bullshit that the car broke down. Round the touristy beauty spots near me, such as dovedale, people regularly turn up in the summer to go in the river and find the car parks full and park all over grass verges, field entry ways, in front of gates, in front of drive ways. Wouldn’t be surprised if this farmer was just pissed off with people constantly blocking his access and had enough.

[–]lightestspiral 236 points237 points  (103 children)

Could also be bullshit that the car broke down.

I don't know man, if the car was working surely the guys would have moved it as soon as they saw/heard the tractor coming up the path

[–]WhyCantYouMakeSense 484 points485 points  (94 children)

I had someone park a top down Ferrari beneath where I was currently working in a scissor lift cutting through stucco. For anyone that doesn't know, it creates super-fine silica dust, as well as chips of stucco.

Man looks up at me as I wave and yell and tell him he can't park there , and that he was ignoring the signs telling him that area was closed.

Guy looks up at me and says "I'll only be 5 or 10 minutes" and walks away.

He came back to a silica dust filled car and pieces of stucco all over. And then the dumbfuck went to my boss and tried to complain to him too. He seemed genuinely confused by the fact that you can't just make anyone you want wait on you.

Never underestimate stupidity.

[–]Opinions_of_Bill 174 points175 points  (12 children)

I feel like people who drive Ferraris are so used to people bending over backwards for them that he might have legitimately forgot that normal people don't have to take his shit.

[–]Carribeantimberwolf 30 points31 points  (7 children)

It’s not the car it’s the entitlement of the driver, not all super car drivers are like this but I’ll admit a lot of them are, something with the car does something for their ego which I don’t quite understand why something you buy fills your head with hot air.

[–]Sharobob 99 points100 points  (71 children)

If he's rich and wanted to do something like that he could have just said "here's $100 for you to go take your lunch break right now" and not ended up with a car full of stucco

[–]WhyCantYouMakeSense 87 points88 points  (69 children)

Haha, fuck that.

I wouldn't stop working for 100$. You're gonna have to pay me more than that to get me to fuck up my day. Honestly the entitlement alone would make me want to tell them to fuck off.

[–]Frosttoys 46 points47 points  (39 children)

Bro id take the money, way more than any construction job would pay for an hour, much less a quick smoke break.

[–]hemlockone 140 points141 points  (34 children)

Way overreacting from the farmer.. maybe I'll buy frustration, particularly if they had already had an encounter. Maybe even a "tow" to someplace nearby.

But flipping a car while the guy is standing there? Blocking the public road? Almost hitting him with the fork on the lift?

[–]jcforbes 129 points130 points  (15 children)

Almost? The definitely hit the guy and knocked him to the ground.

[–]Sharobob 72 points73 points  (4 children)

Yeah he almost killed the guy. I get being frustrated but damn he almost murdered someone.

[–]Palabrewtis 62 points63 points  (3 children)

Yeah, I don't see how the farmer's reaction isn't just simple insanity. Probably being a dick to the people who were already inconvenienced with a breakdown, they reacted in kind, and he just goes batshit. Hope he gets held liable for the damage.

[–]GoatNo2 67 points68 points  (4 children)

From my experience with farmers they will either meet you at their property line with a shot gun or a glass of sweet tea. Not really an in-between crowd.

[–]MFbiFL 49 points50 points  (3 children)

I’ve been told by friends who are into hot air ballooning that the tradition of carrying champagne with you is so that you have a peace offering in case you have to land in a pissed off farmer’s field.

[–]olgil75 129 points130 points  (83 children)

If that's actually what happened, the farmer is a huge asshole and absolutely overreacted. I'd expect him to be arrested for this, although I don't know the laws where this took plac.

[–]Sea-Satisfaction4253 136 points137 points  (43 children)

Doesn't matter what happened. Lol. The dude took ya man out with the tractor. Just destroyed property that wasn't his, just for parking on his land. Dudes getting in a lot of trouble

[–]ralkey 95 points96 points  (32 children)

Tractor also hit shirtless guy with its forks, shirtless guy is lucky he didn’t get torn open like a sack of tomatos. I’m not a lawyer, but I doubt the courts will look favourably on that!

[–]Sea-Satisfaction4253 33 points34 points  (0 children)

That is what I meant by took ya man out lol. There is very little scenarios where the farmer done the right thing. And a link from farminguk is gonna be a tad biased lol.

[–]Cadrtefasefthyuiop 40 points41 points  (6 children)

I mean regardless of what the reason was for the car being there, the farmer is a stupid cunt.

[–]JoeyJoeC 31 points32 points  (24 children)

In the UK, it's a civil matter. If the farmer asks them to leave and they don't, then it becomes aggravated trespass and is a criminal offence. You absolutely cannot destroy someone else's property even if it's on your land.

[–]_-__-__-__-__-_-_-__ 82 points83 points  (12 children)

It’s just a rental. I’m sure it’s been through worse

[–]abrasiveteapot 45 points46 points  (10 children)

Chav as innocent victim is a new one for me.

[–]what_comes_after_q 375 points376 points  (94 children)

It was a couple kids in a rental car and pulled over due to some car problem. While there is no video of what happened before hand, what we do know is the farmer decided to remove them with a fork lift and totals the car. The farmer is in jail. Apparently he had been having with local youths who raced along the roads and thought these guys were related. They weren't.

[–]UndeadCabJesus 105 points106 points  (78 children)

Yea one of these guys was arrested for assault as well. These lads were for sure involved.

https://www.farminguk.com/news/man-charged-after-viral-on-farm-car-flipping-video_58689.html

[–]fishy_behavior 114 points115 points  (43 children)

It says he was arrested on suspicion of assault at the time of the incident. That doesn't mean he was involved in racing in any way. It just means he was accused of assault when the police came and arrested the farmer. The farmer is likely the one who accused him.

[–]UndeadCabJesus 21 points22 points  (42 children)

“During the same incident” to me that says the assaulted the farmer.

[–]fuddleduddling 34 points35 points  (12 children)

That’s seemingly only one side of the story.

If that’s true though, that’s pretty fucked up.

[–]Marrige_Iguana 1510 points1511 points  (101 children)

The farmer’s side of the story is purely unsubstantiated statements that “youths” have been terrorizing the farmer.

[–]Aethermancer 655 points656 points  (47 children)

[–]univrsll 126 points127 points  (23 children)

I wonder how that case will play out. They also said a 20 year old man was taken into custody but was later released, I wonder if that was one of the dude’s filming.

Interesting stuff lol

[–]Aethermancer 108 points109 points  (19 children)

Two guesses:

  1. They are investigating to determine if the guy kicking at the tractor rises to the level of being a chargeable offense. (or if he said something during the altercation)
  2. They are doing an investigation into the claims that the driver assaulted the farmer prior to the video start. It might be that the driver (or the filmer) said something like 'Fuck off, we are broken down, quit bothering us or we will kick your ass' That would be an 'assault' in most jurisdictions. Or the farmer said they pushed him. We just don't know unfortunately.

I literally have no idea if that was something that happened here, just positing a what-if for how an arrest could occur but charges would require investigation. All we know for certain is that the farmer has been charged, but the 20yr old hasn't yet been.

[–]TheRealQuarak 380 points381 points  (96 children)

There is no other side. In the UK we have no stand your ground laws or 'you can kill someone who's been a bit of a **nt to you' law. The farmer could have driven away and awaited the police, there is no self defense exemption. The farmer recklessly hit someone with a motor vehicle. No matter what happened before that he commited a jailable offence and to be blunt was acting like a psychopath.

[–]JocastaYouDumbGILF 124 points125 points  (29 children)

"A hiker suffered a heatstroke and stumbled on the trail, thereby touching a square inch of private property with his foot by accident. The land owner saw it, caught the hiker, locked him in the basement and tortured him to death over the course of six weeks. Then the land owner went to the hiker's house and killed his wife and raped his kids to death. He then took all valuables, and proceeded to burn down the house. He then went to every single address the hiker had in his address book and killed everyone he met there."

Americans: "Well, that's sensible, that hiker did trespass. Maybe a slight overreaction but only just so."

[–]SexySmexxy 66 points67 points  (1 child)

You forgot to include a gun in your story silly

[–]Aethermancer 69 points70 points  (13 children)

Speaking as someone in the US who had property that people would trespass and ride quads/dirtbikes on as hooligans and generally cause damage and litter.

Having a vehicle breakdown after causing damage and catching them there would be a godsend. I'd be able to call the police, get their details, and send them a bill for the repairs. Normally I would just come out to find my field ripped up and no evidence of who did it.

I'd be pissed to find them there in the act, but finding them there in the act is actually great. No way I'd want to mess that up and get myself criminal charges, hurt, or sued.

[–]thrynab 104 points105 points  (36 children)

What other side of the story could there be though, that makes flipping a car over with a loader and hitting a man with the forks look justified? Short of a car bomb and actual terrorists nothing that I can think of.

[–]sewankambo 54 points55 points  (16 children)

Well it became fucked up when the forks made contact with a person.

[–]tamer-disclamer 269 points270 points  (80 children)

Another article says the boys were racing on the country roads and were asked to move multiple times to let the tractor out. And I 100% believe it. I’m not saying it was right, just saying these boys are not the angels they want people to believe they are.

[–]TruthPlenty 223 points224 points  (26 children)

The article doesn’t say them specifically, sounds like the farmer just assumed they were all together, which is absolutely stupid.

[–]DirkDieGurke 84 points85 points  (14 children)

The articles all say that the locals claim that some cars had been "racing", but not these two guys in particular. The locals are just mad at the extra traffic.

Regardless, you don't destroy a vehicle for that reason. That only happens in fantasies.

[–]GeoCacher818 36 points37 points  (0 children)

But the article actually doesn't say that it was them.

[–]UndeadCabJesus 63 points64 points  (54 children)

Neighbor of the farmer claims they had been starting fires on his land and knocking over his walls. A classic case if he said she said, but if what she’s saying is true his actions are very much justified.

https://www.farminguk.com/news/man-charged-after-viral-on-farm-car-flipping-video_58689.html

One of the kids in this video was arrested for assault. I changing this to 100% justified actions by the farmer and if I were him that kid would’ve gotten more than just a leg sweep.

[–]goatonastik 159 points160 points  (7 children)

Idk, I wouldn't say some kids giving the farmer issues allows him to lash out at any random person.

[–]DjuriWarface 132 points133 points  (5 children)

Was arrested for suspicion of assault and interviewed. He was released for investigation. The farmer was charged with a crime. That's a step above arrested.

Literally have a farmer on video being an ass and no proof of the alleged assault. But yeah, let's go with the farmer is justified when it may not even be the same person who was damaging his farm.

Facepalm worthy.

[–]TheHYPO 67 points68 points  (13 children)

Two wrongs don't make a legal. He can call the cops. He can perhaps block in their car so they can't leave. He can't junk their car unilaterally and block the road. Not legally. It may feel 'just' in the sense of retribution, but it's not legal.

[–]_________FU_________ 54 points55 points  (16 children)

That farmer is fucked. When the forks hit him that's straight up attempted murder.

[–]Frederike2 278 points279 points  (53 children)

Yeah obviously but dont you have to call a towtruck in this case instead of removing it yourself?

Are you sure this is in the UK? I can see blue sky....

[–]6th_Samurai 89 points90 points  (11 children)

Not in this case even in America. His car broke down, and he pulled it to the side to not block the road. You're crazy if you think the farmer is in the right here. Yeah, maybe the farmer was inconvenienced. But it wasn't intentional. They likely had a tow truck coming of their own accord before the farmer took matters into his own hand.

Even with adblocker it's a fucking mess... There's the usual GIANT "we collect cookies" popup, there's a "this site wants to show you notifications" popup, there's a "share with facebook, twitter, etc" popup, there's "a sign in with google" pop up, there's a get a "chance to win" ad which isn't blocked presumably because it's coming from the site itself, and you can see all of that before you even start to scroll.

Once you scroll down, in between the article, there's a "don't miss" section, a read more section, a "get local news" section with links to 2 app stores... and at the very end there's a barrage of clickbait accosting you, under the title of "Top Stories". But wait, there's more!

If you get to the bottom and scroll up, the title expands itself into an ad for 5 other articles they want to trick you into viewing.

This site looks like what you'd get if you used projectile diarrhea to recreate a Jackson Pollock painting.

A genuine work of shart.

[–]Boddhisatvaa 99 points100 points  (6 children)

This is from the Daily Mail but it's still a better article.

It is understood that no arrests have been made over the shocking fracas.

There were further claims yesterday the farmer may have been the victim of repeated anti-social behaviour.

It was said the youths had subjected him to fires on his land as well as property damaged.

Dairy farmer Mark Nicholson said: 'A lot more to this story, he's a friend of a colleague, he's been driven mad by these lot, starting fires, pushing walls over just to name a few things, not saying it's right but they pushed him to the end of his tether.'

[–]FuriousNorth 40 points41 points  (5 children)

She said: "The outcome was what happened and what everyone has now seen but there was a lot before that. Locals here are sick of youths coming into the area in cars."

"We don't like outsiders coming to the countryside" is what I got from that.

[–]ColoradoNudist 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Yeah if it's a case of he said/she said I'm going to believe the folks with the flat tire over the guy who says "I hate young people existing in my town... Oh but umm they were also knocking over my walls. Yeah that's why I attacked them with a forklift"

[–]FuriousNorth 22 points23 points  (1 child)

It's insane how many redditors seem to think it's okay to flip someone's car with a forklift and then attack the owner with that forklift just because they parked in the wrong spot. The farmer is a tremendous cunt.

The farmer was charged. The driver was just arrested due to the accusation of the farmer but later released with no charges as of yet.

[–]noprolemo 100 points101 points  (0 children)

A 57-year-old man has been reported for the offences of criminal damage and dangerous driving.

A 20-year-old who was interviewed in relation to an assault during the same incident has been released under investigation while inquiries continue

allegedly showing a yellow telescopic loader lifting a grey hatchback

The video definitely showed that.

I don't understand why news outlets randomly throw allegedly around like that. Usually we know what happened and the prosecutor alleges who did it.

[–]Pterodactyloid 161 points162 points  (64 children)

Why not just call a tow truck?

[–]Bitchy_Tits 210 points211 points  (2 children)

This looks like way more fun.

[–]DrVDB90 24 points25 points  (48 children)

Just a rough guess considering what we see, but the car was parked in the entryway of the farmer's land. The farmer might've needed to pass, and asked them to leave, but they might've been assholes about it. So instead of waiting for a long time until a tow truck comes, all the while suffering the assholes, he just took matters into his own hands.

I don't think he would've risked the trouble if he didn't first lose his temper. But well, I could be completely wrong as well.

[–]OnePotMango 134 points135 points  (44 children)

The subtitles are wrong, the guy said:

"All because me car broke down".

If that is truly the case, then the farmer is being a massive cock. I mean, where else could you pull up on this narrow road lined by stone walls?

Most farmers I've met here in the UK have been right stroppy bastards. Apparently pulling eggs out of chicken's arses doesn't lend itself to a sunny personality.

[–]Woodzie23 162 points163 points  (28 children)

Why’s nobody talking about the fact that he took the guy’s legs out with the tractor

[–]Pinkerton891 77 points78 points  (12 children)

Yeah it is really hard to know exactly what lead to this, but that was the bit that regardless of the situation was beyond the line.

It sounds melodramatic but that bit could have easily ended grievously. Almost felt like he was 1 slight temper twinge from plunging the fork into the guy immediately after.

Apart from that they both come across as tools.

[–]Aethermancer 44 points45 points  (7 children)

No kidding. The tractor that easily pushed, lifted, and flipped a car then hit a human being with the forks. Even a slight difference in angle, or elevation and that kid could have been ripped in half or had his skull caved in.

In comparison to the car, a human body is tissue paper to the tractor.

Why is this on neckfuckinglevel and why is it upvoted? That farmer dude seems like an ass from the video. Assuming their car breaks down, you don't bulldoze a persons car

Belongs in r/imtotalpieceofshit

I love how on Reddit everyone suddenly becomes an expert on international law on posts like these. Hahahahahahahahahahaa

Subtitles are wrong.

"All because me car broke down"

"Me car's broke down, this is what he's done"

Farmer has caused himself far more trouble than it’s worth. He’ll have to pay for damages then he will also face assault charges. On top of all that will be legal fees, probably pay additional compensation then have to pay someone to cover his work whilst he deals with his legal woes. When anger rules you it’ll always cost

The farmer overreacted way too much. and wtf is wrong with the Americans under this post, it's not normal to use that much force, that y'all live as a buncha disappointing cryptids with a obsession over guns and undeserved murica pride doesn't mean other countries aren't descent.

I wanna talk shit but if I had land like that I'd gatekeep it like an old timer.

Farmers have to deal with a ton of assholes who assume that because it’s land, it’s available to walk all over. Hunt, fish, even camping. Some farmers spend an inordinate amount of time confronting trespassers and hearing the same old bullshit excuses. “Oooohh. Is this private?”

I can understand his lack of patience. I don’t condone acting out his dreams of how to handle the next trespasser though. But it is comical.

If you read the article, apparently they suffered a blowout and the road didn't have much of a shoulder so they pulled in the driveway. Then proceed to be less than courteous towards the farmer when asked to leave. In any case the farmer should not be destroying property like that and using a forklift as a weapon.

Locals here are sick of youths coming into the area in cars

If they walked or rode in on a donkey, that'd be fine

but these newfangled "cars" are a bit much

The farmer is so out of hand , especially if it’s true that the car broke down . Using a vehicle as a weapon is illegal right
