Dad beaten over parking space: ĎItís not worth ití
bostonherald.com ^ | Jessica Heslam

Posted on 04/25/2012 7:02:36 AM PDT by massmike

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.

What is this world coming to...seriously.

Do we have nothing better to do than beat people about a frickin’ parking space? Unreal.

I once had a guy pull a gun on me when I tried to park in his hood while going to USC football game in LA.

The outcome would’ve been different if I had one of my LAPD buddies with me...

Brockton, once upon a time, was a decent place to work and raise a family. Now it is a stinking miasma of crime, corruption and drugs. The thugs have taken over the city, and there’s nothing the BPD can do about it.

Pity.

And so,this is what it’s come down to. You get your ass beat if you’re a certain skin color (or not),if you complain about some minor issue,or if you just glance in someone’s direction and that person has a chip on their shoulder. Just shut up,avert your eyes and stay indoors with the curtains drawn. Really? How ridiculous this all has become! I am so sad for us as a people,and for what’s happening to us. This madness has got to stop.

There were no caucasians involved in this, why worry. It only causes and uproar when whitey is involved. No story here.

Well, by profiling (by name and look) these are obviously “white hispanics” so maybe they were ALL doing one for “George”???

Wonder if the NYT has a graphic on White Hispanic on White Hispanic crime...Would kind of doubt it since BOTH are ‘made up’ but they will have some #’s whipped up directly.

Yes, unfortunately, this is what it’s come down to. What decent people have to do to survive in this world is to take the advice the Godfather gave his sons (in the novel, not the movie): “Don’t fight with strangers.” If a stranger complains about the parking space your car is in, apologize, move the car, and quickly get far away from the complainer. Forget about being “right” because the cost of being right when you’re dealing with strangers could be your life. Every stranger is a potential psychopath and you should act accordingly.

You’ve got that exactly BACKWARDS.

The RacistMedia goes into full uproar mode in the EXTREMELY rare instances of white on black crime....even the ones they fabricate.

Wait a minute. Put a hold on my previous reply:

Perhaps you meant when “whitey” is involved as the perpetrator....again so rare, that they have to create instances of this.

Yeah, I got a kick out of that years ago when the libtards created another box to put people in . . . "Hispanic, Chicanos, Latinos, etc." and made them something other than Caucasian.

It's so bad that on my last 3 census forms, I had to check other (if it was on there) to identify myself as an AMERICAN. Can you imagine that in the United States you are an "other" because of these stupid ass libtards? And I don't know if "other" was even on the last census. If it ain't on there, I don't check a thing.

A buddy of mine did the same thing on his census and got some hammerass from the government threatening him if he didn't declare 'what he was.' My buddy wouldn't budge, and they eventually dropped it.

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.

“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.

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.

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.

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.

Not to mention the grossly under-reported slaying of the elderly WHITE couple in Oklahoma and the horrific torture murder of the young WHITE couple in Knoxville.

Both unspeakably demonic killings, as usual, performed by a hate-filled tribe of feral BLACKS.

Not enough cops, not enough money, too many liberals running the city government.

Brockton is another classic example of Democrats killing a city.

It has happened all over the Bay State.

That’s why tens of thousands of people are leaving Massachusetts.

It’s expensive, it’s dangerous and everything can be rationalized in favor of the wrong idea.

Swell.

What a shame.

A state civil rights audit required an ethnicity survey of all our staff at a public school district. All the usual check boxes were provided. All our minority employees, on their own, wrote in “American”. Several visited me to emphasize how strongly they felt about the issue. They were offended we had to do the survey, supposedly in their interests.

The auditors swooped in, demanding an explanation. Since it wasn’t a plot on my part, they had to accept the heartfelt individual responses. But they didn’t like it.
