    Angry Aquaintance attacked leaving Marine recruit office

    What's with the bats today? I heard from a family member that a family aquiantance was beat down pretty well from behind with a baseball bat the other day. He ventured into DC to sign the rest of his paperwork at the Marine Recruitment office there and was attacked from behind on his way back to his car. It wasn't anyone he knew, and at this point it looks like they didn't take anything on his person or his car. Talk about random! He's in the hospital recovering now and his only worry is whether it's going to affect him getting into the Marines...

    That's the kind of (soon to be)Marine we like! His only worry after having his head being busted by a bat is that the Marines won't let him in!

    Don't have any specifics on if they caught the buggers yet or not.

    I pray that he is OK and that jerk that attacked him is beaten to a pulp.

    I think they ought to turn the scumbag over to the Marines when they catch him and let them deal with it.....

    I agree!! What's wrong with people, Do you think its a war protest?
    Surly there has to be a motive?

    I'd be willing to bet a paycheck that this was the act of an anti-war protester. They have been increasingly violent with their rhetoric and and actions, and this could be the inevitable result.

    +1 Unless it is some kind of gang thing or something. I agree with turning this thug over to the Marines. They can use him for training.

    Don't know the motive for sure. Will update when I get updates.

    With that attitude, I'm certain the Marines will let him in (they'd be out of their minds not to do so ). I give the Marines (and the rest of the military services) credit for having a great deal more common sense than the rest of us, most of the time.

    Tell him "thanks for your service" from me, and that we're proud of him!

    Gun Free Zone! At least until the Supremes give us a decision. I hope your friend will be OK and I'm sure he'll make a great Marine. Semper Fi! Tell him "thanks for your service" from me.

    Only if it's live fire or as a practice dummy for H2H.

    If they catch him then I'm sure we could find some good use for him.

    Hope this doesn't affect your friend's recruitment process too much. Unless he suffered an injury that leaves permanent effects he should be fine, but will probably be a little delayed.

    Good luck to him.

    Yeah I think the only thing they were worried about was the concussion and infection from the stitches. He managed to wander into a free clinic(how he managed to find it dazed and confused no one knows) and they stitched his head on the spot, but didn't shave it all off so they stitched it with hair there and all. That's all the real docs were worried about was the hair in the wound causing infection.
