Huff Post – Two men lost their legs outside a Los Angeles strip club when a third man they’d been fighting with allegedly hit them with his car, KTLA reported. The argument began inside Sam’s Hofbrau, a downtown L.A. club early Sunday morning, KNBC reported.
An African-American man reportedly lobbed racial slurs at two Latino patrons, CBS Los Angeles reported, and the dispute spilled outside. That’s when Terrence Conrad Meeks, 40, allegedly hopped into his white BMW and deliberately plowed into two men, pinning them against another car.
The victims, aged 24 and 57, were both listed in critical but stable condition, according to the Los Angeles Times. Doctors said one man would have both legs amputated above the knee, and the other would have his right leg amputated above the knee. Witnesses told police that Meeks appeared intoxicated during the incident, KTLA reported.
The 40-year-old was arrested and faces attempted manslaughter and DUI charges. He is being held on a $500,000 bond.
Not only do you have to worry about knives and guns in L.A., but now you have to be on the lookout for dudes trying to run your ass over. Takes a pretty ballsy dude to spew racial slurs at a couple individuals and then run them over with his bimmer. Yeah, its bimmer, not beamer or beemer. Google it.
Having your legs needing to be amputated at 24-years old has to be one of the worst things ever to happen to a 24-year old. You can deal with it as a 57-year old. You’ve already lived most of your life, experienced a bunch of adult shit. But at 24 you’re just starting out. You’ve finished college and now you’re ready to live life. Go all out. Get yourself a job, a house, a wife and start having kids. However, none of that is happening without legs. Well, maybe you’ll get a job and a house, but that’s only if you can get legs like Oscar Pistorius. If you’re wheelchair bound life is going to be an ultimate struggle. You need prosthetics. Need. Need. Need. I can’t emphasis that enough. Chicks claim that guys are very shallow creatures, but don’t let them fool you chicks are just as shallow. I bet if we could ask Reeva Steenkamp if she’d date Oscar Pistorius if he was in a wheelchair she’d say hell no. Which is why he probably killed her. Chicks need everything to be normal as shit. She probably had enough of seeing him legless in bed, told him to stay wearing his prosthetics or she was leaving him and then that fateful Valentine’s day came where she made a comment like, “I’m not sucking your dick, nubby” and that was that. Pow. Pow. Right through the bathroom door. This is why you need legs, people. So you don’t take shit from your significant other and wind up killing them. May these two men find women who will love them for what they have, and for what they don’t have, because they literally won’t stand for anything else.
