A 50 year old black guy was cut off on an LA highway last week by a car with 3
other men in it. After some brief road rage, then car with the men it in blocked him off and he was forced to stop.
The black man's name was Jerry Patterson who said he left his car because he didn't want to stay in and remain defenseless.
The fight started with just Jerry against 1 man, and Jerry appeared to have the
upper hand until the a 2nd Mexican guy jumped in. After struggling a little, Jerry was on the ground and took a kick to the head which knocked him out.
As Jerry laid motionless on the ground, the 2 other men continued to kick the him in the head 4 more times.
They promptly sped away.
A witness who filmed the entire fight, went over to help Jerry.
Since then, Patterson has come forward and spoke with ABC news LA about
the fight. He admitted that he should have stayed in the car but at the same
time doesn't feel the need to press charges. The thing that bothers him is why
they would continue to kick a man in the head while he was down.
I put the links to the original video footage below along with the follow up report by ABC news.
