Posting this more to vent than anything so thanks for listening.
Long story short my brother in law's step-sister was having a party at her Dad's house. The sister is underage and had a very young crowd over. My brother in law arrived and basically told everyone they had to leave because they were drinking and underage and the cops were on their way. Two guys get smart with my him and make comments. He basically exacerbated the situation by asking them why they were trying to get with younger girls and told them they had to leave. (These guys are like 19).
So after this he heads out to water the horses and as he is walking away they jump him and knock him unconscious. We think it may have been a bottle or another object that did him in but who knows. The doctor believes they used a weapon. As he is out cold they proceed to stomp his guts out. His nose is shattered in 14 places and his eye is swollen shut. I think maybe even a cracked eye socket. They left him for dead and bailed. He woke up and was able to get help but he was in awful shape. He had plastic surgery yesterday for the nose so we'll see how that goes. He is on vicadin and morphine and can't sleep because his pain is so bad.
All of the kids at the party aren't talking and no arrests have been made. The responding officer botched the police report so we have gotten that amended. It's a total nightmare. Every day that goes by without an arrest is making me more nervous.
Also, we have the names of the guys who did this so I looked them up on facebook and myspace. The primary attacker is 6'2" 205 pounds. My brother in law never had a chance (he is 40lbs lighter with no training). The attackers are adding friends and posting like nothing happened. I hope my sister pursues this to the end (criminally and civily). I am praying the cops do there job on this one. Probable cause is a pretty low standard to make an arrest...
I guess the moral is never turn your back.
Thoughts? Thanks for listening.
