Dad beaten over parking space: ĎItís not worth ití

A Brockton man brutally beaten over a parking space recalled the harrowing attack yesterday from his Hub hospital bed, telling the Herald he’s lucky to be alive and the argument wasn’t worth it.

Sosa said he and his wife were out at a friend’s house Saturday night, and a neighbor was waiting for him when they got home.

Sosa, 40, said his car was parked in its designated spot — and the neighbor was fuming because it was blocking his space.Sosa said the neighbor wasn’t supposed to park there.

The pair exchanged words, Sosa said, and the other man threatened to return with his friends. Sosa thought he was joking, but the man came back a half-hour later with two pals, according to Sosa.

When he saw them coming with a “big piece of metal” and sticks, Sosa said he grabbed his baseball bat to keep them at bay until help arrived. But he said he never swung it as they unleashed a violent beat down.

He said he lost consciousness when one of them clubbed him in the head with a metal bracket. The next thing he remembered was waking up in the hospital.

“When you pass out, it’s almost like you die,” Sosa said. “They can do whatever they want to you. You don’t feel the pain anymore.”

Sosa said his wife tried to call the cops but one of the attackers took her phone and slammed it on her face. Sosa later learned that his daughter called police for help. Police arrested Juan Molina, 24, of Brockton, who is being held without bail after being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

So the perps get booked, fingerprinted and handed a Voter Registration Card automatically enrolled as a Dem? Si se puede!

Competition for resources.

In a society whose members do not subscribe to behavioral restraint or chivalry, competition for resources is actually survival of the strongest.

Never look for trouble and do what ever you can to avoid it but be prepared to dish it out in lethal doses if you have no choice. Don’t live like a coward or a victim

“Don’t fight with strangers.”

That advice might not sit well with the super-macho types, but you are 100% correct.

I once attended a martial arts clinic. The presenter was Japanese, a well-regarded karate master. Near the end, the master said that he was going to share with us his most powerful self-defense technique. We all wondered what it would be. A fancy kick? An exotic punch?

Well, it was pretty much what you said. His most powerful technique was this: swallow your pride, verbally diffuse the situation, then quickly move on.

Or as the late Patrick Swayze said in “Roadhouse”, “I want you to be nice until it’s time to not be nice.”

Having a gun only helps if you use it.

They haven’t taken our guns from us. But they’re trying to make us afraid to use them. Zimmerman?

>>MA is virtually a mandated, disarmed victim, zone. Thank you Romney.

No, BOSTON is a mandated, disarmed victim zone. The joke is that 330 the state’s 351 cities and towns DO issue CCWs to their residents. The only armed, safe people in Boston are visiting from somewhere else in the state.

What, you didn’t want to pay the $5 parking at the stadium???

Having seen football idiots park in front of folks home driveways and even in their yards, I would have pulled a gun on ya too.

“Don’t fight with strangers.”

When I was 18 I learned to stay away from drunken strangers.

I once pulled into a parking space in a mall (it was a straight shot and I drove leisurely toward it). As I prepared to get out of my car a woman walked by my window and snarled: “Bastard!” I was puzzled until I realized that she had had an eye on that space. I had not seen her and was not vying for the space but still was the object of her rage.

To some on FR not local to Mass., Brockton is Third world country, created by Yankee Brahmins from Boston.

Kerry, Kennedy and all shmucks from Brookline and Newton.

Wish OWS burn down Brookline and back Bay.

Maybe but if you call a Mexican “whitey” he will probably say “Que?”

I suppose what I am talking about applies more when a decent person is the offended party, as opposed to being the (alleged) offendee. For example, when someone cuts you off on the highway or bangs into you on the subway...ignore it. Don't start a fight or make a gesture. Just stay away.

Not just drunken strangers — ALL strangers. The Godfather’s point is that you should assume EVERY stranger is dangerous because you just don’t have the requisite info to say otherwise. (In fact, many psychopaths/sociopaths appear “normal”.)

While surfing the web I came across the following report on a Louisiana home invasion where three people, all Caucasians, one a 72 year old woman, had their throats slit by 4 or 5 Negro stealing a gold coin collection. These murders took place February 18, eight days before Trayvon killing. The first of the arrests took March 6 or 7. No mention of these horrific crimes or arrests on the national networks that I saw or heard about.
CBS broke the Trayvon Scoop on national news March 8.

Funny how the MF news breaks like that isn’t it? Apparently murder whites for “economic” reasons just does not cut with the NYC networks.

Google “Robert and Shirley Marchand” for more info.
