I hope they throw away the key! Hurting a 73 year old man. You should feel shame for you and your family name.

the buck stops here

I'm glad they caught the the alledged punk. If convicted he will go to jail for a while but with the system so overloaded the offenders will probably serve only a fraction of what they should. mental health issues really need to be re-evaluated in our country. The prime reason why this liberal system we're living in presenlty doesn't work

Cannot control his temper. These are the early signs of trouble ahead not so much for him but for us who might be around him when he snaps again. A lot of noise about gun control but nobody is talking about mental health issues. Wake up people!!!

Easy there dirty harry!

THED0N

Yes it is all legal!

You are right about that R1.

Put the money where it is needed, back into mental health.

For the posters that keep wanting to put them away for life and throw away the keys, who is going to pay for all this? You are, then you will be posting/complaining how much it costs to keep them all incarcerated, why your taxes are so high, and whatever else they tax to just throw away the keys.

At least the kid did the right thing, this time. Since I imagine he will be losing his job over this also.

He is going to prison. Yeah, I would guess the ol' job is gone. Good guess.

It's only libel or defamation if it is untrue. The mods got it wrong again.

THED0N

kURTje- Maybe Josh is an idiot that attacked a unarmed 73 year old man that couldn't defend himself.
