    To beat a 70 year old man,then he is capable of beating a child just as easy.Hope they keep him lock up.

    so are we gonna have a million cane march now? oh no we wont cause this wont make national headlines. everybody stop trying to keep the ______ man down

    He will plead not guilty by reason of being black. Many of them think because they are black they deserve special treatment because they are stupid. Now it is time for all his felon family and friends to come out and say what a good person he is. It’s not his fault he didn’t pay the rent and got kicked out. I guess beating up a 70 year old man makes him something to his friends and family. To us normal people he is nothing but a Pu**y and a coward.

    No, everything doesn’t have to be a race thing, but until you get rid of the likes of Sharpton and Jackson and others like them, it will be. But until then, this is a case of a younger man beating an older man and leaving him in critical condition. Sounds to me like the older feller got it right when he had him evicted.

    Personally, if I was a family member of the victim, I would be tempted to give this guy a beat down myself. He assaulted someone now let him pay the cost of it.

    I sure hope the little fellow recovers
