What is America coming to when two men assault and beat a disabled United States Marine veteran because he confronted them for not wearing coronavirus masks?
“Daniel Troublefield, 43, told the station the conversation became heated in the Ocean Shores IGA Sunday night, but nothing physical happened until after he walked outside and the men began hollering at him.
“‘They kept berating me with expletives, calling me a snowflake, and it’s not science, it’s a hoax,’ Troublefield recalled to KIRO.
“‘To my regret I walked up to the car,’ Troublefield told KIRO. ‘I was trying to explain it is science, and you should be wearing a mask because you’re endangering me and everyone else in the store by not having a mask on.’
“He admitted to the station that he wished he had ignored them — because things heated up even more.
“‘The gentleman tapped on my chest, and I flipped up his hat, and that’s when they both got out of the car,’ Troublefield told KIRO.
“He added to the station that ‘one grabbed me by the neck in a chokehold and got me down to the ground. And before I knew it, I was getting my face pummeled with fists.’
“Troublefield also told KIRO, ‘I curled up in the fetal position, and I was just ready to die.'”
