As we all know, heard, and maybe seen the video of the man kicking that old woman on the train. It was a pretty terrible thing to see if you’ve been under a rock and haven’t at least heard about it. Like a movie poster or a book cover, there’s a bigger story behind it. So, I decided to do some digging behind the viral kicks that left the elderly woman bleeding. (Links to background research below).
The suspect, Marc Gomez, was arrested some time ago due to an anonymous tip that was given to the authorities. On top of the evidence of assault on video to arrest him along with an open case back in November, he also had a little extra spice in the back of the cupboard. The police arrested him and a teen with a shotgun in the car they were in, but it doesn’t stop there. The car was reported having taxi license plates. Enough of his dirt, let’s get to the shit, why the heck did you kick that old womans lights out? According to CNN, Gomez’s fiancé said that they had beef with the old lady because she threatened them along with the fiancé’s daughter. So, Gomez decided to pull up at 3 a.m. and give her a taste of the bottom of his shoe. The 78 year old woman wasn’t injured badly, just some cuts and bruises.
Ok Mr. Gomez, what’s up? Why you have to do her like that? You were angry of course and obviously, but your actions didn’t have to be what they were. You were right to approach her, but you didn’t have to knock loose her denture glue, sir. Threatening is a huge issue in itself, and you also don’t know who people know. No, I don’t support what he did to her, nor does he according to the article above; he mentioned that he let his emotions get the best of him. The most disturbing thing to me about the whole situation was the people watching and videotaping the whole thing. What has this world come to? It seems that people these days want likes rather than helping an elderly woman on a train by herself. Well congratulations, you’re now known as the asshole that watched an old lady get kicked multiple times. What do you guys think of this situation? Comment below, whatcha think?
