HAS THE WORLD GONE COMPLETELY MAD!

I WILL END YOUR LIFE FOR HITTING MY CAR! IS IT JUST ME OR IS THAT JUST IGNORANCE AND MADNESS?

It was one of the scenes that left me completely frustrated at the ignorance I witnessed. I was in my hometown of Baton Rouge about a month ago when I happened upon a car crash just seconds after it occurred. It was on Plank Road near Evangeline. The drivers were out of their vehicles. No one was visibly hurt. One driver was in his mid 30’s driving a newer model Dodge Magnum that was basically tricked out with the rims and all. The other driver appeared to be around 19 or so. He was driving an older model car – I think a Buick. It was likely a 1980’s model. It sustained the most damage. But what bothered me about this scene was the older driver in the newer model Dodge appeared just downright distraught. He looked really upset that his car had been hit. He was walking around in a circle and pacing back and forth. He kept looking at his car with utter disgust. The younger driver attempted to walk over to him to talk but the upset driver held up his hand. It was a motion saying stay away from me right now. The older driver just continued to get upset. And here’s where the crash gets just downright ignorant. The older driver pops open his back hatch of the Magnum and pulls out a pistol. He starts walking towards the younger driver pointing his gun at him. I couldn’t hear the exchange but there was a woman and another witness pleading with the driver of the Dodge Magnum not to do what he was thinking. I assumed it was to shoot another human being over a car. It was the most stupid and disturbing scene I had witnessed in a long time. A man wanted to end another man’s life over a car wreck. Just how stupid and illogical is that? It was a stern reminder how so many people put so much of their hard earned money, effort and pride into their cars, machines – more than a human life. It was truly sad. I hate to sound like a broken record but a man wanted to kill another man because he hit his car. Is it just me or is that just stupidity and ignorance? How do you feel about this issue? By the way, the other witnesses were able to talk the driver of the Dodge down and everyone walked away from the scene breathing. Whatever happened to just reporting a car crash to your insurance company?
