Dudes like this is why there are 3 strikes laws. It's clear he's totally unable to function in civilized society and needs to be kept away forever.

Why did no one come to her aid?  Article says, "Amazingly, no one in the gas station came to her defense or aid. "   WHAT THE FARK, GUYS????

To be fair, if I was standing in line waiting to pay for a Slim Jim, a bottle of Diet Mt. Dew, and a copy of Juggs (my usual purchase at a place like that), and I saw that happened, I'd probably be too freaked out to do much.

"Lara may have suffered permanent damage in her eye as the punch re-injured a childhood injury. Amazingly, no one in the gas station came to her defense or aid."


Amazingly? Not so amazing. One time I was attacked by a crazy woman right outside my job and co-workers saw it. I had to go to the hospital for treatment. Later on the co-workers who saw the attack came up to me and said they had saw the lady attack me, but didn't interfere (or even call building security!) because they figured it was a "lover's quarrel". What kind of quarrel leaves someone injured?

A lot of people would rather avoid conflict.

I consider myself more than willing to stand up for folks, but I do have to wonder if this man, in a gas station with several people around including many adult men, is willing to simply punch a woman in the face over this, who is to say whether or not he has a weapon and would use? Had he gone further than the one punch, definitely would've stopped him, but he just punched her and wanders out... who the f*ck does this?

Bystander effect. Basically people expect others to help if there's more than one person around.  Even if someone is the only person around, they are sometimes unlikely to help because they believe they aren't involved.

Also, why the hell does it matter if the clerk is a woman?  Anyone who gets assaulted and/or robbed should be helped.

The only way to beat a guy like this is to one-up his craziness.  I would have gone all bath salts and tried to eat his face.

Fair enough.  If I was American at this point in time I would probably assist in the punching.

I'd chalk it up to being taken off guard. Most sane people don't randomly punch someone at a store.

If some violent asshole upset over a cigar is willing to clock a woman cashier, then I'm not going to volunteer to apprehend him, TYVM.  In fact I'd be more likely to stop another bystander who had a mind to do so, in hopes of preventing an escalation.  Let the trained professionals deal with the psychopaths.

Almost the same thing happened to me many years ago when I worked a gas station in the Detroit area. It did not make the news. It was barely acknowledged by the management. Cops were not involved.

But yeah... A guy just hauled off and sucker-punched me while I was ringing him up. I don't know why. I suspect it was to distract me so he could steal some Zippo lighters, but it's not like I'd have stopped him anyway. Or maybe it was just for shiats and giggles. Either way, he punched me, I had a nervous breakdown and walked off the job, hopped on a plane to New York City, and wandered around all night before crashing at a friend's house. I went home the next day.

Detroit sucks.

Here in Texas, thugs only get away with crap like that in the dead of night in an empty store.

The perpetrator may in fact have been an entirely different individual of coincidentally identical appearance.

Alternatively, the video may have been altered or edited.

Until Mr. Ruth is convicted of the crime, media outlets are potentially civilly liable if they claim as fact that he committed any criminal act.

No, sweetheart. The cigar cost $1.41. He gave you a dollar. You did exactly what you were supposed to do, and this guy is just a worthless piece of sh*t.
