9. Also found this from Buzzfeed

When security showed up about 12 minutes later, Torres said, he stopped recording and showed the video to officers. In it, the man appears to hit Torres with a pair of forearm crutches he is carrying.

The officers, Torres said, told him they could arrest the man, but he decided he didn't want to press charges.

The man in the video and his family, who were booked on the same flight as Torres, "chose not to fly," according to airport officials.

12. The second time wheelchair boy yelled to kiss his ass

I believe I might have said, "Stand up, Son, and we'll see how that goes. I'll hold your crutches."

13. I think he probably abuse his wife.

She was cowering like a beaten dog.

I am not going to give a single allowance to someone in a wheelchair to be a violent, racist, shit-hole.

Sorry 'bout that.

11. What A Moron

Another knuckle dragging Chitolini loving jerk.

I would guess most of them don't get that we are the original immigrants who forcibly stole this land from its original inhabitants, breaking treaty after treaty to force them into retreat in a most viscous manner.

But then many of them may struggle to read like their hero does.

14. Is it possible to learn to speak Klingon?

If so, I'm going to learn Klingon then speak it into my phone around tRump deplorables.

Yelling at someone for speaking a language other than English is one practice by the Reich wing that gets my dander up.

19. Yeah I don't disagree with anything said here

But from the verbiage I caught that the offender was injured and lost a leg in the war.

Wondering how much that cause the anger he is showing.

Certainly not defending his actions or words but I feel so sorry for the men and women who were killed and damaged in those useless wars.

And for everyone who is damage physically many more were damaged emotionally.

I admit I might be too much of a bleeding heart.

20. "Mike" is a blatant liar

He claimed that Torres was harassing him.

So for all I know, he didn't serve.

21. People need to press charges every time something like this happens.

 

At the very least, make the racist perpetrators apologize on the record in court.

If they won't do that, let them be convicted of or plead out to whatever charges so it is on their record.
