    If this person is indeed guilty, I hope the DA doesn’t plea this out and punishes him to the full extent of the law. Assaulting the elderly is cowardly and low. People who do are scumbags of the worst kind.

  2. Christopher Grisham says:

    I’m 99% sure I know what group of ethnicity this young delinquent belongs to.

    I wonder if he will just get a slap on the wrist and be back roaming the streets before the victim gets out of the hospital. That way he can show his friends how much of a badass he is and how lax the punishment for crime is in Antioch.
