This is why we build cages.
Two teen thugettes attacked a 61-year-old man because he told them to get off his lawn. He went after them with his cane, but, he’s 61, so, he was lacking in the speed department a bit.
Honestly I think it’s time for him to upgrade to a shotgun. Watch the video below.
Via Daily Mail:
Police have arrested two teenage girls who are accused of attacking a 61-year-old man in front of his home in Syracuse, New York.
The skirmish occurred after the man politely asked a group of teenagers, who were sitting on his lawn, to leave.
Cellphone video captures one of the girls punching the man in the face several times before making a run for it.
According to WSTM-TV the footage then shows a second girl spinning the man around as other youngsters laugh.
The man then chases after the teens down the street but quickly loses his balance and falls flat on his face, with his cane flying away from him as he stumbles onto the road.
He ended up suffering a black eye in the attack and is said to be recovering.
While the cruel nature of the attack is caught on video, it is not at all clear what happened in the moments before the record button was pressed.
According to police, the victim claims he told the youths who had been sitting in his front yard, to move. It was after he made the request that he was quickly attacked.
The clip of the encounter, recorded with a cell phone by a bystander, has since gone viral after being posted online and been viewed more than 1.1 million times on Facebook.
In fact, so many people have viewed the offending footage around the world, the man was contacted by relatives in Ireland who wanted to check on his welfare.
Police have confirmed they have since arrested two girls, aged 14 and 15, who will face third-degree assault charges.
