    He is saying he hopes that the peple who did this resist arrest so that the cops beat them senseless with batons.

    Did anybody notice that the kid in the video throwing the sucker punch is wearing a hoodie? It's too bad the area doesn't have a neighborhood watch. But after the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy would anybody have even challenged him?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    You have a point there! Now people are going to be afraid to challenge thugs.

    I used to live in the St Petersburg area and traveled to MacDill a great deal. The area around MacDill is not safe. It is run down, impoverished, has hourly motels and many coin operated laundromats(presumably for the same purpose). The rule of thumb is you do not leave your car for any reason. Violence is an ordinary occurrence with both civilian on military and military and domestic violence. It was a very sad state of affairs when I was living there. Obviously it still is. I do miss renting boats from the base and tooling around Tampa Bay I would stop and have lunch at a tiny deserted island and fall asleep while lying on the beach after lunch. However, it is a crap hole, very stressful and a terrible place to be. The case that sticks in my mind is when a "Tampa, Florida army wife, shot and killed her 2 children for what she called "being mouthy."

    It sounds like Afghanistan is safer than Tampa.
