Be Careful Who You Screw With

The video is disturbing but the story bothers me more.

The cashier, despite his criminal record, is minding his own business. The two black women hand him a $50 bill which for some reason he questions. (Was it fake?) They both get enraged and attack him. One slaps him and then jumps over the counter to attack him while the other goes behind the counter and goes straight to the cash register.

He returns from the back of the store with a metal rod and proceeds to beat the living daylights out of the two women. Up until a certain point it might could have been considered self-defense, but after the two women were down on the ground screaming for him to stop beating them then it became something else.

He's being charged with felonious assault and possession of a weapon (the metal rod?) while the two women who initiated the violence are being charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing.
