84-Year-Old Codger Kicks Carjacker In The Groin

84-Year-Old Codger Kicks Carjacker In The Groin

By Robert Paul Reyes


"An 84-year-old man has a black eye, but he still has his car, after fighting off two would-be carjackers. Ted Mazetier said he stopped Wednesday night to help two men with a disabled car when one punched him in the face and demanded his keys. Mazetier said he kicked the man in the groin and the other in the belly. The two men fled as a passer-by stopped to help." The Associated Press

No good deed goes unpunished, and only a fool would stop to help two men with a "disabled" car. I`m sure those two guys had cell phones, if their vehicle was really disabled they could have called for a tow truck.

I admire the old codger for fighting back, but when a 84-year-old man kicks you in the groin it has all the effect of being slapped with a feather duster.

The two bad guys weren`t forced to flee by the old dude`s kicks, they feared the younger idiot who stopped to help.

What planet are these Good Samaritans living in? Folks who don`t mind their own business get beaten up, killed or sued.

Moral of this story: If you see a man with a disabled car or an old fool getting pummeled call the cops and keep driving
