I remember a time when two men would come to fist and cuffs it would be over if one of them was knocked out. These days; the guy still standing feels the need to continue to beat and kick an unconscious man without mercy. I guess they get off on dishing out that kind of punishment. If you ask me it’s an act of cowardice to continue to beat a man that can’t defend himself.

I hope he had insurance so the taxpayers didnt have to pay medical expenses

Havent you heard? We all have medical insurance and yes it is at our expense!

Nothing good happens after midnight.

Huh? Babies are born after midnight. Lives are saved after midnight. There are lots of good things which happen after midnight.
