I was under the impression that he was the owner of the business, but I could be wrong, and I haven't called for any kind of violence whatsoever.
I do assume that you and probably every other reader of this thread would hope that if it was their wife, sister, mother, grandmother, whoever they cared about were in this kind of situation, they wouldn't be treated in the same way though.
to treat another in this way is unkind, uncaring, and UNCHRISTIAN. to use christian values as an excuse just makes a mockery out of a religion that just doesn't need that kind of publicity.

Out here in my rural area, a person always stops and gives assistance or get helps for a person. We don't check credentials to make a decision as to yes or no.

Is the action in the OP common in NC? Any wonder the country is failing apart.

Do unto blahh blahh, not a Christian that rhetoric don't sail here, I have feet, I will walk. Ohh but yeah the odds of Both cars, the truck and the motorcycles all being broken down at once is highly unlikely.

I think it's a new tactic being used by the conservative right. use their businesses as political weapons instead of for what they should be used for, making a profit. and notice I said conservative right, not religious right... they are using religion as a political tool also, again, not what religion is for!

the one's who should be speaking out the loudest about this are those in the religion, and some have but considering the damage it could do to their religion, they should be many more and much more vocal.

Actually it's not a new tactic. Remember chic-fil-a? Remember Hobby Lobby? I remember when I used to boycott any republican leaning business. And I wasn't the only one. Everyone in my circle was doing the same. Jack in the box. Heck, any business that I read had donated to the Republican Party.

Then I just decided to grow up and make decisions not based on emotion, but decisions based on logic.

So no. It's not a right wing tactic.

that is customers boycotting businesses, which both sides seem to come up with pretty stupid reasons to do.. I am talking about businesses boycotting customers... something that at one time was probably considered to be such a dumb thing to do it hasn't been done since the jim crow laws.

I just find it horrifying that there's people here who call for this guy to lose his job,


Maybe because in the real world when someone refuses to do their job they lose it.

That's not emotion that's how it works. You know, like capitalism dictates it should. If you don't do the job you agreed to do then you lose that job to someone who will.

What good is a tow truck driver who doesn't tow???

Well, if that's the way he wants to act, that's certainly his right...and it's backed by the law.

But in my opinion, it's completely wrong and completely un-christian of him to act in such a way. Not to mention it's bad for his business.

It just shows how divided some americans have become.

Are we sure what he did is backed by the law?

Oh okay. You're not a christian. cool. So, then, you're fine with whatever it is you are ......

well done you, and bravo bigly.

Now - what skills (these awesome skills that you have) are going to be necessary when the SHTF?
Remember - no grid - no computers - no electricity - no running water either. What do you bring to the small community of survivors that they would need enough to include you in the collective that they have unanimously formed?

Nothing? Then shove off. There's another group down the river-bank there --- or ten miles west out there in the desert, see the smoke from their fire? ----

I really miss the "Shake My Head" emoji.

If I saw a lady with a Trump sticker on her car, in distress, I would stop and help her anyway I could.

It's not about ideology or religion...It's about having a little class, some compassion, and actually caring about people.

It's this kind of "holier than thou" BS that is taking Christianity back into the dark ages....."burn the witch"

If he refused to render aid over politics AND if NC doesn't have a "Duty to render aid" law, he's legally within his rights here. If it can be demonstrated he refused to service the lady because of religion or because of her disabilities, or if NC has a good samaritan duty law, then he broke the law.

no, it just shows how far some in the christian community have been misled. most americans will serve anyone, as long as they are acting within reason, that is just good business sense.

and, unfortunately, we will probably have to wait till someone suffers severe harm because they were refused service before we know just how legal it is.

like I said, I think that if your advertising products or a service to everyone, which if you don't specifically state that there are groups that you won't cater to, then it is false advertising.
I bet the first responders won't call him as often after he pulled this stunt though. heck they should take him off their call list, since it seems he only wants to serve around 50% of the population, more or less.

Well, he's quoted as saying "God told him not to tow her". Would that count as refused service because of Religion???

It sure seems Religion might have something to do with it if God's telling him what to do.

Pretty sure we already did have that happen.
Multiple times over the last 250 years.

I'm reading Article 7 Wrecker Regulations for SC

8. Wrecker operators must display professional behavior when conducting business at the request of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety.

8. When a wrecker service or wrecker driver is unable to answer a call, the Patrol shall be promptly notified of the reason for the unavailability. A wrecker service or driver cannot refuse a call without prior notification of unavailability or without just cause.

D. COMPLAINTS/DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES
1. Complaints from or about wrecker services regarding an incident involving the Highway Patrol or its operation of the wrecker lists must be received within thirty days of the alleged incident. Complaints should be directed to the Captain of the Troop where the incident occurred. Complaints will be forwarded along with a report to the Colonel, or his designee, at Patrol headquarters. An appeal from the decision of the Troop commander should be made to the Colonel of the Highway Patrol.

3. Failure of any wrecker service to comply with this regulation will result in disciplinary action in accordance with the South Carolina Department of Public Safety Wrecker Rotation Disciplinary Policy.

Another poster said or suggested he was sent by the Police Dept - - Public Safety

If so, these regulations do apply.

If independent, I don't know.

What’s the obsession in using big government to squish him?

Surely using bad publicity and dragging his business through the mud is good enough?

The guy was a dick. He is a bad businessman and a bad Christian.

Let his action speak and his scummy business sink on its own.

Useing big goverment just causes more trouble.
