Does This Look Like The Face Of A Kid Who Beat Up An Old Dude Because “That’s What He Does To Old People”?
TSG — Meet Russell Rodgers. The Californian, 32, was arrested yesterday afternoon after he allegedly assaulted a 74-year-old man in a Burger King bathroom. Victim Bill Bayless told cops that Rodgers “slammed him in the face with a bathroom stall door, knocking him to the ground,” according to the Red Bluff Police Department. As Bayless attempted to get up, Rodgers again struck him with the door, noting, “This is what I do to old people.” Before leaving the eatery’s bathroom, Rodgers added, “I knocked you down because you are old.”
I can’t put my finger on why I don’t hate this guy. Hitting old people is not cool. That smirk is not cool. But for some reason I’m giving him a pass. Russel Rodgers knocks down old people. That’s just what he does. He’s so open about it that you have to respect it. I’m not gonna play Jordan one on one, I’m not gonna step in the ring with Tyson, and if I’m an old person and I see Russel Rodgers I’m stopping the tennis balls on my walker dead in their tracks and heading the other way. Don’t step to someone when it comes to their “thing” or you might get hurt.
