British Politician Beats Down Hecklers Who Spat In His Face

Posted by on May 10th, 2010 10 Comments »

A question from Joe the Plumber is probably the most amusingly difficult thing an American politician needs to address while on the campaign trail. British politics works a bit differently.

Bob Bailey, a British parliamentary candidate, got into a fight with a group of hecklers while campaigning for his party in the town of Barking. A video of the fight captured by the BBC shows Bailey shouting at the group of men, who confront him and escalate the argument.

Bailey, a former royal marine, tells the group to ‘move on’, but instead of moving on, an individual in the group spits in Bailey’s face, propelling the argument into an all-out fight. Bailey instantly lunges at the spitter, punching and kicking him to the ground, and continues to beat him while he is down.

There’s a very important lesson to learn from all this: Don’t fuck with marines. Or British politicians. Especially a combination of the two. Specifically, don’t fuck with Bob Bailey.  Read More >

Angry Driver Violently Beats Old Man For Driving Too Slowly

Police have arrested Brandon Poulson, a 22-year-old truck driver from Iowa, on charges that he violently beat an old man because he didn’t like the way he drove.

The 70-year-old victim was driving with his wife, and Poulson was following behind. Poulson began yelling and swearing at the man. Sensing his agitation, the man pulled over to let him pass, but instead of continuing on his way, Poulson allegedly pulled over as well, went up to the older man, and began to violently beat him for “driving like an old man.”

Poulson admitted to police that he beat the man because he was upset with the way he was driving. He is currently being held in custody on a $10,000 bond.
