Atlanta Male Passenger was Incarcerated for Throwing a 68-yr Elderly Man Off Train With His Walker

In my What, Are You KIDDING me? Here’s an appalling story of a man assaulting an elderly disabled man- and NO ONE intervened. Shocking story below:

Loren Hooks, 43, was charged with simple battery in last Saturday afternoon’s incident at the East Lake rail station, reported: WAGA-TV: in Atlanta, citing: police for the: Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority. Hooks was booked into DeKalb County Jail on Thursday; his bail was: $500 with $100 cash required, according to the Journal-Constitution.

A passenger shot video of the altercation, which was uploaded to YouTube. In it a visibly younger, larger man is seen pulling the elderly man from his seat, pushing him through the open train door at the station, then tossing his walker through the doors. While a pair of individuals stand up and approach the scrum, no one physically intervenes.

I am a heath care provider, and I could never sit idly by while anyone was being assaulted, let alone an elderly gentleman using a walking aide. This story: spotlights the absolute worst in human nature and behavior, and I can only hope this will inspire someone to do or say something instead of watching and posting it on YouTube. Make time to help your fellow American.
