Statement from victim;
Brantley, who said he has eight children and chuckled after adding "about 18 grandchildren," said people wonder how he can maintain a sense of humor after his experience.
One would think that if anyone of those eight kids and eighteen grandkids had any concern or his well being they would get him out of that environment, or at the very least, go gas up his car and take him shopping to cut down on his alone time and travels.
Not their fault though, and the knuckledraggers should be drawn and quartered;

Very sad state, when an elderly gentleman gets rolled, car stolen and than has to drag himself across parking lot and into building to get help!! I'm disgusted with the 3rd world mentality becoming the norm in the major cities! Makes you want to drop a neutron bomb on some of these cities!
Probably a bunch of young people, I think an older individual would have stopped and see if they could assist. It's the difference in the up bringing.
