    >>>>Could be disturbing to some viewers.<<<<

    Police are appealing for help following an incident between two men on a London Tube Train at Aldgate East station.

    Whatever their altercation was about, the old man was never going to win against the younger person. When the two of them stand, it appears the old man tried to punch the younger man in the groin area, for which the younger man quickly retaliated with heavy blows putting the old man back in his seat.

    While the older man was seated, stationary and no longer showing signs of aggression, the younger man has given the fight a savage twist by intentionally kneeing the older man in the face rendering him unconscious. At this point, police say it was no longer self-defense, but assault.

    have you ever been on the trains in the Tubes? it might not be assault but just a lack of room to turn around.

    I prolly would have walked away. The old man's blows were feeble at best. That being said, that old fucker wanted some and he got some.

    Muhammad Ali won a championship going up against the ropes and letting his opponent whale on him till he got tired.

    The young kid could take the punches, pussy.

    He should be shot and his basket ball team should be taken away from him.

    Old man was asking for retaliation.

    That said, the first shot by the young guy was a cheap shot elbow. That would had been enough. The knee to the head was too much.

    Sometimes people push you too far and you just snap. Don't poke the bear if you don't want to get the claw dummy.

    You need to know when to walk away, no matter what your age.
    This looked like two assholes being assholes.

    I wanna know what preceded that.

    & The only reason he didn't respond earlier was because he didn't want his tablet to get hurt.

    Understandable. Don't spill my beer or hurt my tablet and I might let you live.
