Morning ATS,It's been awhile. Ive been workong out of my home state and just have'nt had the time to delve into ATS like I want. Simply want to pass on a story of something that took place earlier this week. I have been working in one of the Northern states for the passed few months. Meet a lot of good people and made some new friends. All that ended Tuesday.
My truck broke down Monday & I took it Tuesday for repairs. I was told it would be at least till this coming Monday before it was ready. Not wanting to walk back to my motel, and not wanting to ride in a cab, I decided to take the bus. It was a straight shot down the road about 6 or 7 miles. That would be the 1st of my not so good decisions. It went south really, really fast after that. I get on the bus, maybe 12 to 14 people on the bus. I felt out of place, me & the bus driver were the only men.
The first stop after picking me up the bus picked up a man & small child, a boy about 5 or 6 years old. Ass they were approaching getting on the bus the kid falls and eats the curb hard, both knee's were tore up quite bad, scrapped and bleeding. By the time they got on and sat down the kid as a crying mess. The man was not concerned with the boys problem. He started telling the kid to shut up, then the cussing at the kid, then the calling the kid a p---y because he would'nt stop crying.
The women directly behind them spoke up. The man turned around and came oh so close to hitting this woman. The woman asked if she could tend to the childs knee's. The man stood up told the woman to mind her own damn business or he would F--k up her world real quick.
Thsi was where I made not so good decision number 2. I stood up and aasked the man if he would stop the cussing and act like a gentleman in front of all these woman. I asked why dont you let the lady clean the kids knee. I was told if I did'nt shut the f--k up I would tote an arse whoppin. At about the same time this was brewing, the woman got uo and went to the aid of the still whimpering crying kid. Thsi is where mean arse man made me come to bad decision number 3.
He put his hands on that woman, and shoved her back and down on the floor. That's when I got pissed off. I stood up shouted to the bus driver STOP the bus we got a man that wants off. I walked back to where the mean man was sitting and asked real nice if he would like to leave the bus. I was told I was getting ready to get my arse kicked. No, no I'm not. As the man went to stand, I shirt shooted him in the stomach, his air went else where. I then put a nice right cross right across his left side of his chin...and sleepy time came with a quickness.
I should have pounded his ass even more. I did'nt. I waited, made sure the man was ok and knew the law was coming. Law came, took statements from all who would give them. I was told by the LEo I was gonna be arrested for assault. Not one person on that bus was willing to give evidence against me. They all said the man got what he deserved and that he was the aggressor and That I was protecting myself and others. I was still put into a cop car and was told I was being arrested. About a mile down the road this :LEO pulled the car over and what he did next blew my mind.
He let me out and said Mr OYM your free to go. He said I never read you your rights, you arent from around here and the man deserved the beat down you gave him. The LEO called me a cab, and sent me on my way. ASked me if it happens again to just call 911. To the man on the bus. I was nice, the next man like me who takes offense to the way you treat kids & woman may very well beat you to death. Thanks LEO, your one of the good ones. Peace OYM 1262
