A reader shares this brutal account with a request to donate if you can from Go Fund Me:
“Brian was attacked by a gang in Washington DC as he was getting off a bus one block from his home with his bicycle. They beat him and kicked him to the ground and kept kicking him in the head until he was unconscious. They also stole his bike. The bus driver called an ambulance. He woke up in the hospital. He has a concussion, a broken nose, a sub galeal hematoma, and broken vertebrae in his lumbar spine in addition to cuts and abrasions. He is so lucky to still be alive.
My dad went up to be with him and to help take care of him since he has been discharged from the hospital. He is also looking around for a different place to live since he now doesn’t feel as safe where he is at.
I’m sure he would love to hear from all of you. And if you would share this information with others that would be great as well. He could really use help in as many ways as possible. He’s going to be out of work for quite a while and has already built up a large sum of medical bills.”
