A disturbing video depicts a man strolling recklessly in front of a blaring vehicle before being knocked to the ground by an observer.
The incident occurred in Melbourne, when a man was observed walking in the center of a single-lane road, unmoved by the driver in the car behind him who was frantically honking at him to go to the side of the road.
One pedestrian, infuriated by the conduct of another pedestrian, charged the man from behind and knocked him to the ground.
The assailant yelled at the unsuspecting man, “Get off the road, you idiot!”
Have some effing respect… He is beeping to tell you to get off the road.
A horrifying video depicts a man strolling in front of a car without regard for his own safety while the car behind him honked for him to move, before being slammed to the ground by a bystander.
One pedestrian, infuriated by the conduct of another pedestrian, charged the man from behind and knocked him to the ground. The assailant instructed the naive man to “F*** off the road.” “Have a little f***ing respect huh.. He is beeping to tell you to get off the road.
The man who was blocking the oncoming car then indicated he was deaf and unable to hear the beeping.
Many social media users, however, did not accept the explanation, stating, “They know that deaf people have even more reason not to walk in the middle of the road.”
Another commented, “Thinks he owns the world.”
It does not matter if he is deaf. If you are that entitled or inattentive to your surroundings due to your condition, you deserve to be beaten,’ wrote a third.
Nonetheless, some users claimed that the attacker was in the wrong and that the man must have been drunk.
“Be merciful and get him off the street!” A light slap is acceptable, but a full-on tackle? One user commented, “C’mon.”
Another remarked, “No one thinks pushing him like that is unduly aggressive?”
“He’s probably intoxicated, he can’t even walk in a straight line, the guy who tackled him like that did something illegal, and he could be seriously harmed,” remarked a third.
