Road rage

By From page A5 | March 13, 2013


To the Mustang driver,

The nice afternoon of Saturday, March 9, myself, a retired deputy in a wheelchair and his son were taking a nice walk as we usually do. We came upon a neighbor who was doing the same and we stood to each side as we heard a loud car coming towards us, so we went to one side and the neighbor to the other. We yelled at him to slow down as we had dogs and a man in a wheelchair. So he slowed, revving his motor in disapproval. Most of our neighbors know who we are and always slow to let us get to the side. No sooner than we get to walking again we hear the motor come roaring up behind us, the driver slows to a stop, rolls his window down and starts yelling at us that we better watch ourselves, we don’t know who we are dealing with and next time he will get us.

Shame on you young man. If you were my son I would have been ashamed. Why?

1) Driving too fast, 2) acting like a jerk in front of women, 3) and threatening a man in a wheelchair who fought for his country and was put in a wheelchair in pursuit of someone speeding.

And he lives with that everyday now. Shame, shame on you on you. Now we have to walk watching our backs, but you, little man, will not make us live in fear.

I am a woman who doesn’t like threats from people like you. Bullies beware.
