Wonder if recent  events gave them permission.  
Never go to a convenient  store unarmed. This almost happened to me in Houston
several yrs ago. Long story short, I faked going for a gun in my back waistband,
fortunately, it worked, they scattered like roaches.
Notice the heavy dude at the end walking from the gas pump with his right hand in his pocket!!

    HE DID?!?!?!?!?!?  The guy took a beating without even letting go of his stupid bags.  How is that standing for yourself?

    This crap will never end until the penalty for such actions exerted by the "victims" onto the perpetrators is swift, personal and overwhelming.  Basically others have to look at the consequences to the offenders and think "Well that was just not worth it.".

    I hate to say it, but the way things are today, people are afraid to fight back 
    One person can not handle 5 guys alone.  Even though they were a group of whimpy cowards, the pack mentality made them think they were tough. Most of the people I know are not intimidating looking, just average guys. Most are armed, but if you attempted to attack them like that the first one is getting hit, that wimp that kicked him while he was done would have had his leg broke and would have been kicked so hard he would know what his nads taste like. In most places ifnattacjed by 5 you are in fear for your life and may act. If no gun, hit them with the grocery bag, there has to be a can or jar of something. The idea of just taking it should not enter your mind. We are not sheep

    I think that attack could have been headed off during the exchange inside the store.

    I don't generally exchange words with people in public barring occasional exceptions. Eye contact, body language, and quiet mannerisms speak best most of the time.

    As far as Im concerned a parking lot ambush means Im completely unleashed.

    My take is that he stood up to them about cutting the line, but I could be wrong

    Need to back the mouth or just shut up and take it.
