    Ping!

    http://www.thelostogle.com/2012/07/2...-baseball-bat/

    The guy in the image above is named Horatio Coates. If Horatio looks a little dazed and confused, well, he has good reason to be. Earlier this week, he was repeatedly struck upside the cranium with an aluminum baseball bat while attempting to steal DVDs from a Dollar General. The blows to the head were delivered by the storeís manager, and fortunately for us, the whole ordeal was recorded during a 911 call.
    You can listen to the audio in the News 9 clip below. Itís worth it:

    The store manager was just pinging him under control ... he must not have popped him that hard or his head would be all messed up.

    Knowing the feelings of many toward police on the forum, I wonder if the story were this:


    ... Earlier this week, he was repeatedly struck upside the cranium with a baton while attempting to steal DVDs from a Dollar General. The blows to the head were delivered by a city police officer, and fortunately for us, the whole ordeal was recorded during a 911 call.

    I bet they would come out of the woodwork.

    Should clarify that it's an unarmed offduty officer. Otherwise your comparison fails. A police officer would have better tools and training to deal with the situation. If he were to use an aluminum bat, it'd be a demonstration of malice, rather than an honest attempt to apprehend a suspect.

    At least a aluminum bat was used, they are much safer than wooden bats.....just ask the NCAA.

    Agreed, this would have been a classic use of the TASER....which would have probably sounded just as funny.

    I can see that.

    For s&g's lets say uniformed @ baton to the head over a CD v. owner @ aluminum bat to the head over a CD, not really much difference. Still excessive for a petty thief. Of course providing the thief had no weapon, and posed no physical threat. IMO.

    My family thought this was the funniest thing they have ever heard. I had to replay it 3 times it was so funny. I didn't know they would "ping" like that hitting an animal. Underwear man has been defeated again.

    Yep. It isn't an officers job to beat someone upside the head to defend someone else's property. It would have been the officer's job to arrest the individual. Now had the individual become extremely violent, then of course I would understand an officer defending himself.

    Another gentleman and I on another forum had a bit of fun with this, I captured and remixed it a bit and he added circus music to it for a ring/notification tone. If anyone is interested in it I can email it to them file is too large to send via text.
    I do not know if the below link will work for preview.

    Cop or no cop .. a lawsuit will be filed ... how many times can you hit someone in the head with a bat and NOT be liable for a civil charge? There must be a number....

    A bat is a deadly weapon...the guy who pinged him can expect service right about ... now.

    I disagree, he only hit him until there was no more threat. He didn't hit him while he was on the ground and he did call 911. I would ask for a jury trial if it came to it as you wouldn't find 12 of anyone that would convict this guy. You might find 12 people that would like to give him a medal though. I really think people are fed up with the goverment and criminals, and if you put underwear on your head and commit robbery and threaten people I for one would like to see you 6 feet under. If I was on a jury this guy would get a medal for striking this criminal out.
