The victim told police that, as he walked to his car, Michael cornered him, began to assault him and took him to the ground. While on the ground, Michael began gouging the victim’s eye and kneed him in the genitals, according to the report, so the victim bit Michael to get him off of him.
The victim also said that Michael coughed in his face, spit on him and said “‘If I have it, you have it,'” according to the report.
Three witnesses identified Michael as the aggressor in the fight, according to the complaint. The victim suffered a swollen left eye, according to the complaint and court records.
In February, Michael was reportedly offered a plea deal which would have resulted in two years probation. Michael refused the offer saying he had merely defended himself. Instead, he chose to take his chances with a jury.
Because he was found guilty of assault causing bodily injury, the conviction comes with a mandatory 10 year prison sentence.
Just throwing this out there but… Michael COULD have just responded “sure” when asked to adjust his mask and none of this would have happened.
Or – he could have chosen to ignore the request altogether.
But Michael chose to become the aggressor. And there you have it.
It was amazing. Forever and ever, every time I see or hear Trump, this is all I see. His vile cruelty. I am so ready for that picture to be erased from my head and heart. Joe Biden is a man of character and integrity. Joe Biden can wipe away that image. pic.twitter.com/0rra01kTmj
Here’s a sad example that there’s a jerk in just about every demographic.
A video shared on social media shows a confrontation between a driver and a pedestrian escalate to violence after the driver realized he was captured on video calling a Black sanitation worker a “f*cking n****r.”
The incident took place on New York City’s Upper East Side over the weekend. After shouting the racist slur, the driver noticed a pedestrian was recording the ugliness.
“Are you recording me?” asked the driver.
“Yeah,” says the pedestrian.
“Why?” the driver asks.
In a pretty spot-on assessment, the pedestrian replied, “Because you’re an asshole.”
“I’m an asshole? Honey, look in the mirror, okay? The only person who is an asshole is you for recording,” says the racist driver.
During the exchange, the motorist asked the pedestrian, “Are you gay, too?”
“Too?” Oh god, he’s gay? Dang it…
“No,” the pedestrian replies.
“No, you’re not? Well, you look like it,” the driver snaps back.
When the pedestrian shares he plans on uploading the video to the internet, the driver scoffs, “Okay, I’ll get fans, honey. That’s what I’ll do.”
It’s at that point the driver exits his car and assaults the pedestrian. Along the way snatches the phone recording the incident and hurls it to the ground.
The driver probably thought he’d solved his internet problem, except others nearby noticed the exchange and were recording as well.
The YouTube poster writes that prior to the beginning of the clip, the driver “was repeatedly shouting at a Black sanitation worker, yelling “you’re a n*****”. The noise was enough for several residents to come down to street level.”
Folks in the Twitterverse were NOT having the hideous behavior.
Racist on the Upper East Side. Find out who this racist person is and let us hold them accountable. This and any other act of racism will NOT be tolerated.
Remind NYC gays that all of the rights they take for granted are thanks to black Lgbtq civil rights leaders of stonewall, and the gay community’s modern rights are because of the civil rights work of blacks in the 50’s and 60’s. This guy should have more respect.
It’s horrifying. This person grows up somewhere else, as a racist, and at some point decides that they want to go live (uninvited) in NYC. Then comes to NYC so he can shout N$%^*R at black New Yorkers whom were probably born there.#GoHome#BlackLivesMatter#GoHomeRacist
Tison let the gentleman know he needed to wear a face mask – like all the other shoppers in the store – or he’d need to leave.
The shopper began recording the encounter and proudly announced his bigly 3K following on Instagram. Mr. 3K informed the store manager he didn’t have to wear a mask because “he woke up in a free country.”
Tison politely looked in the camera and restated the policy. When Mr. 3K refused to wear the mask, Tison took the man’s shopping cart and departed saying, “Have a great day.”
“So you’re gonna take this cart from me full of stuff?” the shopper asked, to which Tison replied, “You are no longer welcome here in our warehouse. You need to leave, thank you very much.”
“He’s gonna take the cart away because he’s a pu**y little bitch,” said Mr. 3K as Tison walked away. “There he goes walking away with all my stuff, there he goes because I’m not a f**king sheep.”
Note – the goods weren’t Mr. 3K’s yet as he hadn’t paid, but I digress.
Mr. 3K apparently posted the video (thinking he was victorious) on Reddit, but soon deleted the clip as he was being ridiculed across the interwebs.
But, as they say, the internet is forever… Here is Mr. 3K and our hero, Tison via Twitter.
For the record – what I see here is a responsible front line supermarket employee doing his job and enforcing company policy, he did not deserve the abuse.
Slow. Effing. Clap.
I’m signing up for a #Costco membership. That’s how you do it.
Mr. 3K came back to announce, “I got every f—ing right to not wear a mask,” he said. “This isn’t about wearing a mask, it’s about control. I’m not the f—ing sheep … I was one of the only people in that store not wearing a mask.”
I mean…9/11 happened and now TSA searches you in order to get on a plane, right? And we all understand if you don’t want to get searched you’re not getting on a plane, right? So…if you don’t want to wear a mask. You. Can’t. Go to. The store.
Woke up in a free country, then got in his truck that he must smog, put on his seatbelt, (or be fined), obeyed traffic laws (or be fined), then refuses to wear a mask because it’s an infringement.
Why are anti-maskers so scared of wearing a mask?
What’s the real reason?
Whoa! This assh*le customer got more than he bargained for when he raised a ruckus at a McDonalds in St. Petersburg, Florida.
According to Heavy.com, Daniel Taylor got himself arrested on New Year’s Eve after he reached over the cash register and assaulted a black female employee.
You can see Taylor grab the employee and yank her across the counter.
And then, he gets the beatdown he deserves.

The incident took place after the Modesto, California Families Belong Together march which protested the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border.
Abdul Lasaing, who is a clerk for the Modesto Police Department, filmed and posted the video, writing that he was walking back to his car after the march when he encountered a group of men that included Harmon.
“I heard a group of men shouting and trying to scare us by saying #sendthemback and even yelled at someone nig**! I was so in chocked [sic] so I automatically pulled out my phone to record, and see who was being so disrespectful!” Lasaing shared on Facebook.
One of the people commenting on the video thread identified Harmon as having won a wrestling scholarship at Cal Poly, saying, “It’s time to take that scholarship away from him.”
And that’s exactly what happened.
Harmon is now expressing some sense of remorse over his actions, but feels his punishment exceeds his bad behavior.
“Saying what I said is definitely not the right thing. I am supposed to be there to help the community be the best person I can be and represent the college the best way I can,” he told local newspaper, The Tribune.
“I still feel like my freedom of speech was taken away, and I don’t think my scholarship should have been revoked over something like that,” he added.
Clearly, Harmon hasn’t studied the Constitution to understand what ‘freedom of speech’ does and doesn’t protect.
Cal Poly Athletic Director Don Oberhelman confirmed to The Tribune the university was aware of the video.
How gross a human being do you have to be to attack a high school student because you don’t like his “politics?”
Personally, if I was a college/university looking at a student with a 4.1 GPA and all the leadership he’s shown the past several weeks since seeing his fellow students gunned down, I’d snap that student up.
Just a Fox News host attacking a school shooting survivor for getting rejected from colleges. What a world. https://t.co/i0HYUpLHgN

During a segment about ESPN host Jemele Hill calling Donald Trump a white supremacist, Fox Sports analyst Clay Travis tells host CNN host Brooke Baldwin that the only things he believes in 100% are the 1st Amendment and boobs.
“The First Amendment and boobs. Two things that have never let me down in this country’s history.”
A stunned Baldwin at first pauses, then checks in again with Travis to confirm he actually said “boobs.”
