Marine Veteran in Pink Tutu Knocks Out Disabled Vet In Wheelchair Over Costume Dispute

We are just hearing about torts and crimes rolling in from Halloween (to be added to our 2013 listing of Spooky Torts). None are quite as bizarre as the arrest of Christopher Dabney, 22, a Marine veteran who took offense at the costume of Daniel Priotti in a wheelchair. It appears that Priotti was dressed as a veteran in a wheelchair. It turns out that Priotti is a disabled Marine veteran confined to a wheelchair. At the time of the attack, Dabney was wearing a pink tutu.

The scene unfolded in a Pita Pit restaurant in Gainesville, Florida around 2 a.m. when both were in line. Dabney reportedly called Priotti a “fake” and hit the victim twice and knocked him unconscious. Dabney was stopped by men at the restaurant from leaving.

Dabney was taken away to jail in his pink tutu while medics revived Priotti, who explained that he was a paralyzed veteran.

Once Dabney puts his pants back on, I would strongly suggest a plea bargain. I can find only one prospective juror who would be in any way sympathetic with him:

  1. “Thank you for your service”. A meaningless cliche; flatters the one who utters it, and says not one thing about the character of the recipient.

  2. Oh DonS, thank you! I am SO tired of the endless bleating of that tiresome phrase – and my dad served 20+ years in the USAF.

    • The trolls are the people liking a destructive militarily. They are the I will do worse to you that them sodomites, yes that’s right sodomites! Sodomy has nothing no not anything to do with sex. learn the truth that sodomistic religions will never tell you read Isaiah 1 KJV, all of it.. No sex in it. What you trust in will kill your soul. Your not appreciative of me telling you the truth to save your soul?
      The military = the same idols that the Philistines worshiped. The military might as well bow down to Dagon their fish god worsting like they did in like same manner. Goliath is = to the military. to the haughty military. Military minded people will be in Gog, and Magog, read Revelation 20. K,J,V, I tell you the truth, and you dislike it? Molech, Baalim, and Baal worshipers would be glassy eyed at our killing machines wishing they had them to sacrafic more people with them. Militarily power is power to destroy what God made. That is the devils power.

  3. Jonathan, please just stop talking. You are making a fool of yourself. You need to go to school and get an education so that you can intelligently present an argument. Your lake of grammar is astounding. Next, I bet you live in America. That being the case, you need to SHUT UP! Regardless of how you feel about war, you damn sure need to be appreciative of the men and women that are putting their life on the line to give you freedom to be the moron that you are. Since you love throwing out references to the bible, why don’t you look up King David, King Solomon, and countless other war leaders that there are inside the bible. They fought wars as children of God and with His blessing. Stop acting like you are some saint because you are far from it. Oh, and think about this. Is it our job to humble someone? Does God tell us to humble others or to humble ourselves. Stop representing yourself as a christian when you cannot even live a humble life as God and Jesus has told us to. Not so subtle point: STOP BEING A HYPOCRITE!

    • War is evil period. had it not h be Jesus would have removed all doubt. My thinking is not typical American. War is evbil. War tries to over come evil with evil. Can you say good can come from evil? Killers are moronic with their own soul. Why don’t you think Jesus did not act like a military human?

      Flesh,and blood did not reveal to you how close I am to God. You need to be humbled now. T0 be humbled in Gods glory is to late.Be naked without a man made thing will humble you in a hurry. That is why the devil in people want to make it indecent. Stop Right there You are calling me a HYPOCRITE? Feel the two edged sword of the word. Proverbs 11:9:King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
      An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
      The militarily takes destroying to a whole new level.

  4. @DonS: Thanks for the link – gotta love Bill M.

    Moyers says his flag lapel pin “reminds [him] that it’s not un-American to think that war ā€” except in self-defense ā€” is a failure of moral imagination, political nerve, and diplomacy, which almost makes me want to wear one!
