    Paraplegic in Wheelchair Tackles and Chokes Robber

    From Liveleak:

    This guy is proof that you don't need functioning legs to be a stand up guy


    Larry Skopnik, who is in a wheelchair, defends a convenience store clerk and puts the asshole in a choke hold. He doesn't even hesitate.

    Badass. Also fortunate the guy didn't pull a knife or something.

    I love how everybody joined in on this one, but especially that it was a guy in a wheelchair that started it off. Not saying that getting involved physically is always smart, or necessary, but I appreciate that this guy saw some bullshit happening and just put his foot down...so to speak.

    Jesus-fucking-Christ God Almighty, you guys have to watch the aftermath:

    The incident starts at 3:00, but keep watching after the customers take over for Larry. If you thought the wet floor sign guy was also awesome, just keep an eye out for the Asian dude in the hoodie.

    You're right. That was an impressive side head lock- even let him blow his nose. Class.

    Yeah notice how he and the other guy just kind of watch the handicapped guy do his work, and wet floor sign guy just decides to smack the robber in the ass with the sign....might as well!

    This video is inspirational. LOL every person in the store seems to know some sort of submission hold (but not how to help a handicapped man back into his chair...not that he really needed them).
