    RAYTOWN, MO (KCTV) -

    Two men beat up a World War II Veteran, ransacked his home, and stole from him.

    Police need the public's help identifying the two men, and the elderly man's story about what happened to him is harrowing.

    "He did one of them Texas Ranger kicks - knocked me back against the door, against the refrigerator and plum down on my knees," Roy Hooten said. "This is so painful in here [holds upper ribcage] it even hurts to breathe."

    Hooten is dealing with a cracked rib and a deep gash from a pistol whipping after a good deed left him bloodied and bruised.

    "He said ‘we need to make a phone call. Can we use your phone?'" Hooten said.

    Hooten opened the door for two men about 10 a.m. Thursday but, before long, he felt a foot in his chest and was splayed onto the kitchen floor. The men started yelling ‘where's your money?'
    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."
    -The Mist (2007)

    I said on another thread that the Metro KC area was getting worse (Raytown if part of that). Chicago and Detroit are not the only ones climbing on the "criminal violence" scale.

    Good for him that it didn't change his view of humanity. Now he needs to replace the stolen little gun of his departed wife with the 45 he carried in his WWII bomber.

    I agree! But, if you open your door to two complete strangers that may not even save you.

    It has come down to the criminal maggots using the sympathy and goodness in a person to accomplish an attack and robbery. I am very surprised they just didn't kill him for the sport of it.

    As hard hearted as it sounds, this man should have NEVER opened the door, but he comes from a different generation of trusting people. Well, we can no longer trust everyone because of incidents like this. I suspect we will see more of these maggots preying on those who are generous, kind and want to help someone.

    I live in a "good" neighborhood and don't open the door to just anyone that I do not know. The person on the other side may not be someone I want and encounter with.

    Wolves? I love wolves. I respect wolves. These are maggots.

    .....or their elders, or ANYBODY! These thugs are predators and will attack the weaker among us if they even THINK it's an easy mark for them. I have NO sympathy nor does my heart bleed for whatever 'excuse' they make for their station in life and the piss-poor decisions they make. I hope they 'resist' when the law catches up with 'em

    Time to start thinning the 'predator herd'...and as many as possible, ASAP.

    Yeah, my bad.

    I like Wolves too.

    I respectfully changed it from Wolves to maggots.
