TACOMA, Wash. - 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.
Police later arrested two suspects for investigation of assault.
Mazetier said he'll think twice before stopping again to help someone on the street. He'll be 85 in June.
Good for him, the more people that fight back the better in my humble opinion'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I am glad that the octogenarian samaritan is still among the living. Now had he had a CCW permit and was carrying, the outcome for the suspects may have been different.
What gets me is that because of the actions of those with criminal intentions, there will be fewer that will stop to render assistance to those that really do and will appreciate the help.
Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.

That sucks that these days youc an't even stop to help someone out (if they really do need help) in fear of sh!t like this. I try to stop, but only in the light of day with lots of traffic. And when I get out I take my keys.Not an LEO. But hopefully soon
