Whatever happened to the old saying “respect your elders?” Now, the younger generations run around like a bunch of idiots attacking our elders all for a laugh. These attacks are done in such a way that most people don’t even expect it. The end result can leave the victims extremely injured. But what happens when the chosen victim turns out to have a mean right hook? One thug found out the hard way after challenging an elderly man who had no problem holding his own in a fight.
According to The Daily Caller:
An elderly man knocked out a much younger man in mutual combat, a video posted to LiveLeak Thursday shows.
“I’m gonna hurt ya,” the older man warns his challenger before the fight.
And hurt him he did.
All it takes is one punch and the other dude is on the ground.
As the cameraman astutely observed, the challenger was in fact “knocked the f*** out.”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from years of watching low-resolution street fights on the internet, it’s that old guy hit like Mack Trucks. This video is just further proof of that fact.
It makes sense when you think about it. Back when I was in Boy Scouts, they wouldn’t let us play dodgeball because it was too rough.
When this elderly gentleman was a teenager they probably had fights just for fun.
I know which generation I’d bet on in a fight, and it’s not my own.
The attack shown above didn’t quite go as planned for the attacker, and he got what he deserved. The thug may have been the victim here, but oftentimes the end result leaves the chosen victim knocked out cold. The attempted attack shown above is similar to the “Knockout Game.” Those who participate in the knockout game put everyone they target at a very high risk for serious injury or even death.
While the old man was able to defend himself successfully this time, oftentimes the victim is left badly beaten. Fortunately, the elderly man was strong and able, but the video just goes to show how badly we have fallen as a society. What do you think?
