    He was just tired off all the darn AT&T trucks. So he put his foot down, got a gun, and stood his ground.

    Have you ever seen the Seth Myers skit, Fake or Florida? I feel like this would be deserving of that. o_O

    Well, that's provided you're not a black woman not firing at someone you're afraid of, and firing a warning shot in the air. Then and only then you can look forward to the whole weight of the law and then some thrown at you.

    Clearly he is just standing his ground against the trucks.


    In all seriousness, I can't believe that dude actually stood there. The old fart is crazy. I wouldn't want to be within range of him.

    We need to check the Truck's background to see if the it deserved it.


    I used to be a cable tech for Time Warner for several years in Queens and Brooklyn NY. You wouldn't believe the crazy and strange people I had to deal with on a regular basis. That guy is probably desensitized like I was.

    LOL....Desensitized could be dangerous, but I understand it. First month or so on deployment in Iraq people took cover during mortar attacks, then we slowly stopped since they rarely hit anything. Guess it's just human nature.

    You also have to question the intelligence of the guy filming this. Strolling around filming a man who is quite clearly insane and armed with a weapon that could end his life in seconds, doesn't look wise to me.

    Two less applications for Mensa to process I suppose.

    In my day we just took a pebble and put it in the cap for the valve of the tire and screwed it back on - nice slow release of air and everybody lives.

    Wouldn't be standing there filming a guy firing on my tires in broad daylight in a residential area.

    Revolvers should come with speedloaders as well.

    This guy is walking around like Michael Douglas in Falling Down.

    Did he have hearing and eye protection? He could damage his hearing.

    Besides range time expensive. Cheaper to hunt AT&T trucks. Wonder when open season on Comacast trucks is?

    That's what climate change is for. Buy beach front property in lower Georgia now, while it's cheap.

    Gunfire happens so often in Florida, if you ran for cover every time you heard it, wouldn't get anything done.

    surprised neighbor didn't come out and shoot him for making so much noise. They make silencers you know, only $200 tax stamp and cost of silencer.

    $200 is highway robbery for a "silencer"
