    That whole thing is disgusting. I am too old too fight and too old to run. But I will defend myself if I absolutely have too. Too many other people depend on me for me to get injured or seriously killed.

    Nothing that 10 years in prison couldn't fix.

    I'm willing to pay more taxes for prison guards. We just gotta keep more of those types of people in jail for longer and society would be a better place :)

    Same here. My knees went a few years back, degenerative arthiritis in the lower back and left shoulder, plus raising our 14 year old granddaughter (now our adopted daughter) has instilled in me that there is no way I will "play fair" if something occurs.

    Eric Holder probably will state these guys are "his kind of people".

    I can't but help notice, that if I had a son, he'd look like this tourist.

    Felony assault.
    The first one that gives the names of the other perps get a deal. The others do the full count.

    I hope he gets a good prison sentence too, along with all the accomplices.

    The assault was to keep stolen property, wonder if that's cool too? Lawyers crack me up.

    Bad idea to be drunk in public, even though it was the victims right to have fun, predators exist. Those predators should be locked up.

    Would like to hear predictions about what would have happened if the races were reversed in this incident...

    However, the Baltimore City Department of Tourism does not want this "event" made public.

    And neither does the main stream media. Can you imagine that?

    If the races were reversed, it would certainly be called a hate crime. Remember the cabbie and his passenger being beat and robbed by blacks in Philly with anti-racial slurs? Yet, not a hate crime either. I say boycott Blue Cities. Support your local county fairs and sporting events. Hit the bigots in the pocket books.

    Holder may have been right about this being a "nation of cowards" -- he was just identifying the wrong people...

    And to be clear, I mean that the cowards are those who would mob-attack innocents, sucker-punch people, hit a defenseless woman, etc. It's hard to imagine how some sub-humans can revel in their own absence of character, dignity, and honor.

    Strangely, for me anyway, the punch on its own is the least disgusting part of the video. I've seen that kind of crap plenty of times. I've never seen people just picking openly at some poor drunk's pockets or stripping a knocked out guy naked. Obviously a sucker punch is pretty low, if not uncommon, but the other stuff is just completely alien to me. Looked like Somalia.
