The article goes on to state the following:

The girl raised her hands and ran back towards Bell – who then decked her, sending her to the ground in an instant. The other young girls with the victim, as well as other witnesses, began screaming as the brief recording ends while some of them run back inside the mall.

    Looks to me like she asked for it!! This group of little thuglettes had him surrounded and he just defended himself!!

    How about Gang of teens attacks man…what happened to gender equality? I would have walked away but something tells me that wouldn’t have worked.

    I read the story in NY Post. Nothing about the incident from beginning to end which is usually the case when trying to cover up the true picture. Please, if possible post an update on this with, hopefully, a full report of what happened.

    Good for him! He should have round house kicked the entire group. Fkin Primates screaming like wild banshees


  6. Susan Steenson January 15th, 2019 at 1:00 pm

    Looks like she was attacking him first.

    I watched the video clip several times. There were quite a few “young girls” (all black) surrounding and taunting a large (white) man. It is obvious he did not handle the situation well. However, these brats were taunting HIM. The incident could have been racially motivated — by the GIRLS. I would like to see a completely objective and truthful account of the story by witnesses and the media. Y’all know this would’ve been viewed differently by the media if the man was black and the kids were white.

    Sorry, she asked for it. When he pushed her, she should have called police. In fact, they should have all walked away. But instead, she came charging back like a bully.


  9. Marleen Marshall January 15th, 2019 at 1:33 pm

    DMLplease make sure of what you post from NYP, this wasn’t the full video showing that he was pushed from behind first before retaliation


  10. Cynthia Rael January 15th, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Watch the whole video. The media conveniently scrubbed the first five seconds where the kids were hitting him before he struck back.


  11. BER January 15th, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    The girls were threatening his whole family including a young child. The girl pushed him and he pushed her back. She went after him again with fist raised at him and he hit her once. Those girls had his family surrounded.


  12. Kathy January 15th, 2019 at 2:30 pm

    OK what happened that all those people had him circled and Little Miss tough ass was going up in his face I don’t think he needed to close fist punch her but you know what you wanted to act like a thug you better be able to fight like a thug he knocked you on your ass

    I would like to see the preamble to this incident. If the crowd was threating his family prior to this he was correct to put a stop to the attack. It seemed to work as the children immediately ran away and his family was protected. I feel that there is much more to the clip that was edited…
    Personally , if I percieve a threat to my family I will act accordingly to eliminate the people responsible regardless who they are.

    All the above comments are spot on. It’s the media trying to race bait. He should have punched her harder.


  15. Matson Templar January 16th, 2019 at 12:32 am

    I’m afraid that her mama, MTV, CNN and some white leftist lesbian teacher has been drumming it into her little head that she should revolt against, and attack “white privilege” and “male privilege” at every opportunity. WHITE PRIVILEGE = Growing up with a mommy and a daddy. MALE PRIVLAGE = Going off to fight for your country in wars and coming back maimed, blind or in a box. Unfortunately no one told her about size privilege or socially acceptable behavior.

    It would have been a whole different story had the man been black and the girls white.
