From our mailbag:
my friend dave, a guy from nebraska, was leaving the metropolitan bar in our neighborhood this weekend, he was about two blocks from the bar on a corner when some guys jumped him. i’m not exactly sure what happened but it seems like there was a woman with them who said something to dave to distract him and then he was jumped from behind. he never saw his attackers. they kicked him and punched him while calling him a faggot the whole time. after the beating they stole his stuff (i’ve been told the stealing part seemed like an afterthought). he was in the hospital for a few days and had to have reconstructive surgery on the right side of his face as he had many broken bones. he is in good spirits and is now out of the hospital.
the guys that beat him up used his credit card to buy a subway ticket so there may be a photo of them, but it may be hard to prosecute them because dave didn’t see them, although he probably could identify the woman that was with them.
Let us know if you saw anything. Oh, and be careful guys!
