    I'm no fan of dumbocrats but, I don't think i could support this guys actions. I might have demanded payment up front if worried about getting burned. But not gonna leave a woman and kid stranded on the side of the road. JMO.

    Either pay up front or tow it to his yard and lock up until she or the insurance pays up. In Mississippi most tow companies won't or can't give you a ride. You have to get your own.

    If you watch the video and pay attention you'll notice that the hefty girl is the disabled one that they are talking about. His truck he can tow or not tow who he wants.
    I'd have left her sitting,
    Just my opinion,

    The woman did not have a kid with her... she was the only person in the auto.

    The tow truck owner could have demanded money up front, but chances are she likely wouldn't have had the cash with her. Who carries cash anymore?

    Did you see the disabled hang tag on her inside rearview mirror? That's for a mobility impairment. She appears to be excessively overweight or suffering from what is diagnosed as gross obesity... which is a recognized disability and is associated with extreme difficulty walking... an ambulatory issue.

    Once Mr. Shupe refused his towing services, this young woman was free to call another tow truck.

    Now she's playing the "victim card".

    As others have said, his truck, his call. I just don't agree with his logic. Now, if she was talking smack about politics, maybe it makes sense. But to deny service because of a piece of cardboard? Just not my way of thinking.

    He said past Bernie fans had burned him with the bill! Like I said, pay up front or impound the vehicle until the bill is paid.

    If she had full coverage auto insurance, he's generally covered for the towing cost. Otherwise, he's wise to ask for payment up front.

    If I had owned the tow truck, her signs and bumper stickers wouldn't have bothered me. My philosophy would be this - all those with Bernie and Hillary campaign paraphernalia adorning their cars would be assessed a "surcharge"... :)

    And I'll stand by this... Bernie will never be president of this country... much less win the nomination.

    If he were to get too close to that goal, I'm sure the old goat would suffer from an acute and major sudden "medical" emergency that was of a previously unknown nature.

    His call. Don't blame him. I refused to do landscaping for people with obama signs in the yard and told them why and to find a liberal democrat to do my quality work at a reasonable price.
