A man (whose name was not disclosed) was eating at Waffle House of America (I don't know which one. The article doesn't say) when he saw a man at the next table screaming at a woman that he was with. Things got ugly when the other man struck the woman and proceeded to choke her. When the man saw this he got up and confronted the other diner.
I applaud this guy's actions. I, for one, hate seeing a man abusing a woman. I would have done the same thing. I hope more people will be brave enough to step up and do something about a wrong that's being committed.

Here is the link to the story:LINK

Warning: The video of the event has strong language, which has been bleeped.

I saw this earlier today and pretty much feel the same as you.

This man did the right thing by confronting that little wanna be bad @ss. A real man would never lay a finger on a woman, only cowards do such things.

Like the man in the video, I too watched my mom get the crap beat out of her growing up and it infuriates me to no end to see it happen to others.

I once confronted a little punk who slapped a girl in front of me and nearly got the crap beat out of me in the process. I guess he thought it was okay to hit another girl....I didn't care. It was the right thing to do. Thankfully others stepped in before it got out of hand and the jerk got arrested.

Source says location USA unknown. But that seems to be one Raging Ca'jun !
Signed! Sealed! That little pip squeak got owned! And his little friend whom joined him standing atop the bench. Little fellers couldn't come down.. awwwwww.




Wish there more like this guy out there.
This works in all abuse situations..kids too.
Stand up for your fellow human.

Note: I don't condone physical violence. The big guy was using words. Some grabbing. Not much more. He didn't punch or CHOKE the little A-hole.

This fellow, the veteran...

There need to be more out there like him. When people see things like that, they should stamp on that behaviour with a quickness, and I love the fact that this gentleman knew that intrinsically.

Good for him. As a bloke I am not only taller, bigger built and much stronger than my wife - and even were I her size - its just wrong for a man to beat up on a woman for whatever reason. You break your vows maybe and destroy the relationship but you walk away and keep the lawyers out of it.

A man looses his dignity, which is about all he came into the world with, by hitting a woman and also by verbally abusing her. OK Some women don't know when to stop 'arguing' but you can always walk away or give the talk to the hand when dealing with the more loudly delicate of our species.

I'm glad it didn't get that far. Yeah, that's one thing guaranteed to send me over the edge. It's one thing I won't tolerate.

Yeah, the guy's my hero. When I saw him pull the dude up out of the chair like that I wanted to clap.

So true. I believe that if you see something wrong and do nothing, you're at fault as well.

I agree. It's wrong even if the guy is four feet tall and the woman is six feet tall. Any man who hits a woman is a coward.

Lol.. maybe there could be an exception.. say you're Rhonda Rousy ( or what ever that MMA fighter girls name is ) .. picking a fight with Michael j. Fox at the ICBM House of Crepe. There are few but , non the less cases of women exuding physical harm that need a word or two.

Me and that dude? F###in' homies FOR LIFE. I would have done the same thing, and have. My own dad. Sad but true.

Mad applause for him, s&f for bringing it to my attention Skid Mark.

Lol! Me too! But, I would do again and not think twice about it.
It was worth a couple of bruises to see the punk in handcuffs.

Bravo to this man for doing the right thing. I wanted to slap the other guy after he said "he good" for about the hundredth time.

What a waste of skin, oxygen, space and time... Both him and his friend. Its bad enough you have a "man" willing and able to put his hands on a woman, but you have another "man" sitting beside him that is obviously ok with it.

Unreal.

This crap occurs and gets out of control because nobody says anything anymore. Everyone is too busy trying to mind their own business instead of stepping in when they see an injustice that this type of behavior now flourishes.

My husband nor my father would have sat there and watched this either. A man stands up. Hopefully the woman took this opportunity to leave this loser, but I have my doubts about that too and maybe that's just another reason folks don't bother to stand up too much any more.

Not to bring pop culture into this but. It's like the final episode of Seinfeld. They were busted for not interfering with the fellow human in trouble.

This guy gets my vote. Some will say he bullied the bully. But if bully number one would not have done what he did... then angry pancake guy wouldn't have to do what he did.

Personally I have done this. Once!
A group of guys decided to pick on an elderly lady. She was having issues driving. So she did actually cut them off at a Sonic's ( Burger joint ). It was clearly confusion on her part.
Five guys got huffy.. they really wanted a burger .. but they swore and threatened her life... I was enjoying my tater tots...
I started shaking with fear.
Then it hit me to the point I could no longer hear or watch..
I got out and started stomping over. ( mind you I'm 6.3 ft... 215lbs with a marine haircut ). It was that instance I had to count on what I looked like.. and hope they would not call my bluff.
As I LOUDLY said what's the F-N problem and please explain!

They retreated at Faster than Benny hill Speeds...

After that I purged a bit.... and couldn't sleep that night...

But it worked.

Thank god... those were Latin kings.

I agree. It's gone on for far too long. People need to get involved.

Thanks..

I've no doubt anyone who posted so far. Would not let such a thing go. You just can't.
Embrace the suck.... and speak out!


But no really I was sick after my incident...


Oh that silly nervous system...

Sadly the woman is probably in hospital with broken rib by now because of the humiliation retaliation that took place when they got home.
The police should have been called.

They were called. The article said that he was later arrested.


Although it is unclear where in the country the incident took place, according to the YouTube comments, police arrived on the scene and a man was arrested in connection with the assault of the woman.


I'm not sure if he was or not, since they're citing youtube comments, but I hope he was.
