Pizza Place Beatdown
i found this interesting... video link at bottom
AKRONOhio - A brutal beating was caught on tape at an Akron pizza parlor, and now the man responsible is heading to jail. Mark Jones, a 35-year-old Akron man and former convict, was found guilty of felonious assault, and was sentenced to four years in prison.
The incident began when Prestia Sims cut in line in front of Joseph Scarpino at DaVinci's in downtown Akron last July.
SLIDESHOW:Pizza Parlor Beating
Scarpino told his fianc? on his cell phone that it may take a little longer to get their pizza, and Sims overheard him.
Security video then shows Sims, infuriated by the comment, begin a long tirade at Scarpino. She swore at him, and even spat at a manager who tried to kick her out.
Then, Sims' boyfriend, 35-year-old Mark Jones, stepped in.
Jones, who is 6 feet 4 inches and weighs 295 pounds, hit Scarpino at least seven times, while onlookers watched, doing nothing.
When it was over, Jones rolled Scarpino over and retrieved a cell phone he had dropped in the beating.
Even then, other customers did little to help as Scarpino nursed a broken eye socket, nose, a concussion and a chipped tooth.
Sims, who is also charged with felonious assault, is scheduled to go to trial March 16.
some people are pathetic. those people were lookin to cause trouble

There were so many people in that ****en place and nobody did ****...... nobody wants to help anybody these days..... yeah the black was huge but you can tell from the video there were a few bigger guys in there just standing doing nothing. I'd feel really good if it was me on the floor and nobody did anything to help

Good for him, 4 more years behind bars.
He probably has NO SKILLS to make it in real life, and prison is his natural habitat.
Hope they send the b*tch with him.
Those kinds of people are easily expendable.

That was a **** good beatin dished out, heavy right hand, impressive for a pizza shop but i've seen better. Too bad it wasn't warrented, if i were in the shop i think I would have clobered the woman screaming and spitting.

I have a bigger issue with the seven guys just standing there not doing anything.
02-22-2005, 07:48 AM #6
What a dumbass....oh well...stupid people belong in jail anyway. ow if they put the woman who spit on the manager in jail that'll be like adding ice cream to the cake. What surprises me is that the manager of the store wasn't on the phone to the police.

I'm honestly surprised he survived this, it makes me sick to watch actually. I can't stand seeing someone minding his own buisness, about to go home to his girl or anything like that just get absolutely traumatized (which he will remember for life) by some ****ing out of touch criminal. I'd love to be in his cell with him, i'd show him how bitches are made. That poor guy's life could literally be ruined now over that one incident. You gotta remember, not everyone is a fighter, and if you don't have a fighting spirit and something like this happens to you, you're going to be scared of everything for the rest of your life.
People don't take into consideration what a beating like that will do to a person other than physical damage. When i was younger, i'd fight at the drop of a hat. Someone said a quick remark about me, i heard someone was saying something about me to someone else, hell even someone bump into me and say "exuse you" would warrent a beating. Then you grow up and realize that these things can impact a persons entire life. Don't get me wrong, what was in the video was nothing I would never do, it's just plain vile, however growing up I realize that these are human beings and unless they do something pretty terrible to me, there is no point in risking ruining someones life. You only get one chance at life, i'd hate to lay in bed at night and think about lives i could have ruined, It would haunt me.

Shame noone did anything.... Somone could have cracked the guy in the head with something if they were scared wtf

Anyone of you guys have brass knuckles....I have a set on my key chain. Their illeagle here in FL but if you drill a hole in them and place a key ring on it then their not. Carry them everywhere....I've been sucker punched one too many times not too.
02-22-2005, 08:03 AM #10
Juggy, be careful with brass knucks. You hit someone with em even if its in self defense it's a felony, trust me. Also be careful of your hand, if they fit wrong, you're in for some pain.. trust me once again, i've broken my hand too many times this way when i was younger. That being said i got the meat tenderizers from mrknuckles.com, they weigh so god**** much though. Never carry em, I can punch hard enough, don't want to kill someone.
02-22-2005, 08:03 AM #11
Ive got some knuckles. The worst part is it looked like the black lady actually started it. She was ranting and raving before her boy even got in. She was spitting on the manager for crying out loud. Someone should have hit them both with a pizza pan.

**** BD, that was kind of deep for you. lol
02-22-2005, 08:04 AM #13
Honestly, Fighter or not.....That was one hell of a first shot and would be tough to overcome for most people.
That is something I would have had to step in on if I were there. Whether I knew the guy getting beat down or not.
02-22-2005, 08:12 AM #14Originally Posted by bdtr
If I can't get the guy stopped by taking out a few ribs then I drop them on the ground and move the party upstairs for the head shots.
02-22-2005, 08:13 AM #15
I hate being stereotypical, but the two look like they belong in the ghetto, the woman fits the stereotype perfectly. Had they been white I would've said perfect trailer trash material. Stereotypes exist for a reason I guess

It comes from experience. When i was 18 I got into a scrap with a guy, 20 years old if i remember correctly. It was over some stupid barroom crap, although he seriously provoked it, going to the point of spitting in my face and hitting me. Well I hit him back, he hit the floor and didn't wake up for two weeks. Turns out he was a college student on an academic scholarship who had just a bit too much to drink that night. He had to drop out of school, his short term memory is garbage and has problems getting thoughts out of his head out his mouth, it's painfuly frustraiting for him. That was 7 years ago and to this day i send him a fairly large blank money order every month trying to buy a little bit of my soul back for that one. I plan to do so as long as I can find him. I'll never tell him who's sending it, but I think he knows.

Seriously b, that is pretty deep. Looks as though wisdom is coming along with old age for you my brother. I say that because for a lot of men out there old age comes alone.
02-22-2005, 08:19 AM #18
the first hit was quite a shot. it s a shame that nobody stepped up. that guy was more fat than anything else.
I m wondering that nobody pulled a gun when I m reading here I get the impressions that everybody seems to be strapped. may be I just read to much of bdtr`s postings

How hard is it to land a devastating first lick when somebody is looking down at their cell phone and they have no idea the blow is coming? Anybody got kids? They can hurt you when you don't know it's coming.
That POS should rot in prison, alongside the whore in the restaraunt.
Those of you being critical of the bystanders...I understand the point, but think about it. They were witnessing a pretty severe beat down, and did not want it to happen to them. While they might have been thinking they needed to help the guy, they had no idea if anybody else in there would help them. Because they stood by, you know there was not a fighter in the bunch...so we are talking about people who would have ended up in the hospital next to this guy if several of them didn't jump in.
I am certainly not condoning their actions. They should have helped. Then they should have pummeled the crazy bitch too.

Yeah that wasn't really to cool... I've been to Cleveland it's a laid back
city, so I'm not all that surprised to be honest though... Before anyone
decides to kill me about that it's NOT a KNOCK on Cleveland at all, but
I found it to be true, at least to me... and by Laid Back I mean no one
jumping in is not surprising to me... Most places that would not happen...

Filthy fat skank just got irritated coz' she was waiting for the pizza too long.
If the fat loser wasn't with her she'd be quiet as a mouse.I hate women that stir up troublejust because they know their man will defend them.I had 2 gf that constantly pulled crap like that, dumped both their a$$es!
And as for nobody doing nothing - I'm not even suprised anymore.We live in a world where nobody gives a **** about anybody but themselves anymore!
The whole thing pisses me off
And BDTR, very good call on the sending that dude money, shows a lot of class, I might be wrong about you afterall
02-22-2005, 09:20 AM #24
**** that guy deserves to be in prison, that sick! i hate the way some people think they can go about doing that, that black guy didnt know who he was messing with, and it pisses me off that he only got 4 years (though this is long)
i dont know what prison is like in the USA, but my brother was in prison here and im telling you it isnt bad! he got 2 years and he was working out, playing football (soccer), getting good meals etc. and yet us tax payers have to pay for that!
prison shud b basic, bread and water, no covers for beds. people who get sent away need to learn to respect life and others, and need to live in the **** to realise how goo things used to be
hope he gets longer after a review or something

18 years ago I was in a pizza place and a big mf'r came in and demanded money. He did not have a gun and at that time I did not either. My girlfriend was a year younger than me and she started crying and the whole place was silent and letting it happen. I took a fork and bent down the two end pieces so it would not slip out of my hand, the guy was threating to beat the ladies head into the register until it opened and I came up behind him and was going to stab him in the head, but he moved and it went into his trap. I could not pull the sob out. He turned around and the only thing that popped into my mind was to poke out his eyes, instead I luckily grabbed an eyelid and pulled that sob with all my might. This guy intead of punching me out ( he was about 50 lbs heavier than me ), he started crying saying he would leave if I would not rip his lid off. Even though I was trying to do just that I said I would not if he calmly walked to the door with me(he still had a fork in his trap and he was worried about his eyes)... My girlfriend gave up some that night, after the police questioned me and was debating on taking me in for assault. Can you imagine they wanted to arrest me? All the witnesses then started to come to someones defense - mine. Thank GOD! Some people came up to me and actually thanked me.

4 years on a violent offense means the big boy is going to do 85% of that time. There is always someone who is bigger, stronger or worse yet, crazier than "you". That guys life is crap and he had nothing to lose and when he gets out he will have even less to lose and probably do something even nuttier. He might end up starting a fight with a 5 ft 2 130 lb mexican next time and end up getting sliced open like a pig. I've seen it before

I can't argue with anything you said brotha... Most people are shocked
when they see some **** like that and just stand there, not to many are
wired up to act without thinking... I've been in a few bad spots and to be
really honest if I thought about what I was doing I might have been just
like one of those bystanders too... But I'm not wired up that way... Not
saying it's good to be either...

That guy that got hit was knocked out on his feet after the 1st punch...
That's pretty clear... Happened to me once when I got hit with a brick..
I didn't go down, but I was seeing black for about 20 secs...

How many of us here pay close attention to what and who are around us at all times? I freakin watch everyone like a hawk....you never know when someone going to freak out and it pays to be prepared.

The pathetic thing is, if someone stepped in and helped the guy, and hurt the assailant, the cops would probably haul them in too, and then they'd get sued by the black guy.

Can we give some props to the guy for still standing after that first punch? Yes, he was out on his feet but still standing. I think I would have been on the ground playing possum or something. At the very least on the ground crying.

- in a hole
sad...... i think he deserves more prison time... he will only serve 2 years... maybe less.....
02-22-2005, 05:33 PM #40
That was the biggest pussy move ever man. If you really wanna know the truth that girl needs to get thrown in a hole with him because you dont know what she said to him when she ran out to get him. You know it was probably more like "this mother****er in here threatened to hit me" not "hey this guy called me out for skipping line". The other dude being the big dumb animal he is, proceeded to do the only thing he knows how to do. Who knows. **** that pissess me off.
