I think it is absolutely DISGRACEFUL for a 35 yr old man to beat an ELDERLY MAN!! i dont care what he did. Does anyone have any honor anymore? It seems as though people have a complete lack of self control….. hope they catch the guy. I really do. Hope he goes to jail for attempted murder. Let him have a temper tantrum in the Pen. We'll see how he makes it in there. Some of those boys will give him the attotude adjustment he really needs. God bless the elderly gentleman, i hope he heals quickly and this situation is resolved soon in his favor.

Poor guy, I hope he makes a full and fast recovery. I also hope that asshole that attacked him gets caught by a bunch of cops like the one that beat the j walker.

The major part of the story is a Senior Citizen was assaulted by a much younger person.

But the Age of the Senior is never given.

So I dug it it up….

The Anoka County Sheriff's Office says an angry driver followed a 71-year-old man to his home in East Bethel and assaulted him.

Any questions why more Seniors should be carrying a simple to use means Self protection?
