Two men had a minor sideswipe on a turnpike in Massachusetts last week about 20 miles west of Boston. They both pulled over to give each other their information. That’s when things took a very bad turn and road rage ensued. Cellphone footage showed the terrifying rush hour event. This happened around 4:30 pm on Friday.
Richard Kamrowski, 65, was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck when this went down. He was talking to Mark Fitzgerald, 37, who was driving an Infinity SUV. An argument broke out and things went from bad to worse.
Kamrowski reached into Fitzgerald’s SUV and took a bottle of water. Fitzgerald got behind the wheel of his SUV and started to leave. He acted like he would drive right over Kamrowski, who then jumped on the hood of the SUV and held on in an attempt to stop Fitzgerald according to state troopers. For about three miles Fitzgerald sped up and slowed down his SUV trying to shake Kamrowski off which would have killed him. At one point the SUV was going in excess of 70 mph.
“I thought he was going to run over me and, I don’t know, I don’t think he stopped, he just kept going fast then slow, fast then slow trying to get me to slide off, and I wasn’t getting off the car,” Kamrowski told Boston 25 News. Kamrowski broke the SUV’s windshield with the water bottle according to police.
A number of other drivers attempted to stop Fitzgerald but that didn’t work. However, when Fitzgerald slowed down to a stop because of traffic, a good guy with a gun and a concealed carry permit got out of his vehicle and went around to Fitzgerald and ordered him out of the car. Just then the police showed up and arrested Fitzgerald and Kamrowski. The good guy with a gun was not charged… he was commended for ending a potentially deadly encounter.
“The SUV driver ultimately came to a stop, we believe with the intervention of some Good Samaritans, and was taken into custody by responding troopers,” Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said.
Fitzgerald refused to answer questions from reporters. He was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon against a person over 60, negligent operation and leaving the scene of a crash causing property damage and Kamrowski faces disorderly conduct and malicious damage to a motor vehicle charges. Both should have been charged with reckless endangerment in my book.
The two men were released on personal recognizance bonds and ordered to appear for arraignment in district court on Monday in Waltham, Massachusetts.
“I was assaulted. That’s it,” Kamrowski told NBC Boston. “I just kept telling him, ‘Stop the car, stop the car,’ and he wouldn’t stop.”
I saw an episode of Mythbusters that showed how holding on the way Kamrowski did to the hood of the SUV at that speed should have been impossible. He’s very lucky to be in one piece. Kamrowski said he’s just happy to be alive. “When you’re hanging on for dear life, it’s, you know, pretty scary,” he stated.
Once again we see a good guy with a legal gun saving the day. He should get a medal. It’s a wonder no one got hurt here.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:

“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
