This is a viral video, or just becoming one. Kai the homeless hitchhiker, skateboarding, surfer guy, saves a woman from a man who had just rammed a PG&E employee.

After saying that he had in the past raped a fourteen year old in the Virgin Islands, the man said that he came to realize that he was Jesus Christ and then hit a guy because he black, according to a witnesses.  He then got out of the car and attacked a woman who was trying to help him.

This is where Kai came to the rescue.

Turns out no one has life-threatening injuries and the man is in custody.  

Kai tells the story in this first unedited 6:00 video. To me, the most amazing part isn't the story, it's what Kai says in the beginning of the interview:

"Before I say anything else I want to say no matter what you done you deserve
respect. Even if you make mistakes, you lovable. And it doesn't matter your
looks, skills, or age, or size, or anything, you're worthwhile. No one can ever
take that away from you."

At the end of the video Kai says that, "I don't have any family, as far as anybody is concerned that I grew up with, I'm already dead. So, whatever."

These two statements bookending the whole thing say so much.  

Here's the video.

Kai seemed like such a character that I wasn't quite sure this was real. Based on five minutes of googling, it appears so.

Here is another report, including an interview with the woman who was attacked.

Straight outta dogtown. I hope he gets to surf Mavericks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
