No good deed, as they say.

But he is from Lakeland. They deserve regular beatings.
 
2012-11-13 10:38:36 AM
Moral of the story: Don't help anyone, anywhere, at any time, for any reason.
 
2012-11-13 10:39:16 AM
It was Donald Trump.

"He was in a nice car, so I kind of let my guard down. It's unfortunate, it really is,"

FTFA: "Applewhite said he had just finished working a 13-hour day and was going to get dinner with the rest of his crew when he stepped out of his utility truck and was attacked by a resident."

Another bullshiat story. Did the rest of his crew stand idly by and let him be beaten so badly? I think not. He probably stiffed a hooker and got pimp-whipped, ran his mouth in a bar, or something.
 
2012-11-13 10:44:25 AM
He said the man fled the scene in a BMW.


What's the difference between a BMW and a porcupine?

The moral I'm taking from this story is that judging people by the car they drive leads to an ass whooping.

Yeah, the story the way it stands doesn't make sense.

HEY!!!!

Still knowing people who have lived in lakeland all their lives its not far off that he probably did something to deserve getting his ass kicked.

Because you know people never drive in separate cars to meet at a restaurant...

Lakeland man beaten for cutting off asshole in BMW on highway.

More likely.

Surprisingly little when one of them is being crammed up your ass.

If Sandy had kept better track of her power and not lost it somewhere, this poor guy wouldn't have gotten beaten.
 
2012-11-13 10:51:05 AM
Sandy did not have the power before she went to NY so how could she have lost it?
 
2012-11-13 10:51:10 AM

Probably was rushing to get to the gym.

They They had just finished working and were going to a restaurant; they were in their power trucks. Power repair crews almost always travel together. But believe what you will.

I say that if they figure out who the attacker was, he suddenly finds that no power company wants to provide electrical service to his property anymore...

Beaten = Non-Union

Beater = Union

'Cause we all know Union members are nothing buit a thugoracy

NY is a state. NYC is a city. Yes, there is a state attached to the city.

It would be nice to sever that area from the rest of the state, so that the rest of us can go about our business of milking cows, growing apples, making wine, and driving camaros.

This took place on Wrong Island, outside of NYC.

You You must have actually been there to know all this.


I've been through a hurricane and several other severe weather events and have seen how these repair crews operate. At meal times, you can watch their line of trucks pull into some eatery. We have had no less than three OMFG! news stories about how the power workers from other areas have been maltreated in NY. All of them have been proved false. This one is too. The kid's story just doesn't add up.

You stay classy, East Meadow. It's not the best of areas and some white guy from FL will stick out like a sore thumb. I'm assuming this was on Hempstead Turnpike.
 
2012-11-13 11:07:52 AM
Well, you have to admit the guys face is VERY punchable.

All I can say is that when I scan the FL news items to submit to Fark, a large portion of them originate in Lakeland and Bradenton.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was a true story. I have listened to people call the radio station getting more irate each day. "I HAVE NO POWER! I AM ALWAYS THE LAST TO GET IT!" more and more they complain no one is working and are just screwing around.

Bunch of whiny aholes. I have gotten to the point several times over the last few days where I daydream if beating the crap out of people complaining about not having power. I evacuated to my moms and we were without power for days, and yes it sucks but the power will eventually be restored. Ours was and theirs will too. The house I lived in was completely flooded. The kids and I are homeless, and everyday is a freaking nightmare. We are still shacked up at moms which is a blessing and is the reason I am not biatching. There are others with it way worse still in shelters.

I am normally a very level headed and easy going chick, and if I am ready to assault someone I can see how some ahole who already walks around ready to fight would lose it and take it out on someone who doesn't really deserve it. These power guys came from other states to help us. I've been listening to them biatch for 2 weeks now. What surprises me are two things, one you don't hear of it happening more often and two that these power guys are nice and stayed.

I do apologize if this makes no sense, I have done a lot of babbling lately.

Scabs should be beaten. What's your point, Poindexter? What does a discussion about unions have to do with some douche from Florida getting a beat down? Idiots.

Because looking at other articles it doesn't appear to be a made up beat down, I don't buy the road rage angle either since NYers drive shiattier than Floridians.

If it was a union beat down they need to throw a hate crime charge against the person who beat him.

because if it's ever happened, it's always happening

why, i'm non-union and am getting beaten into a coma by teamsters right now
