ST. CLOUD, Minn. (WCCO) - A 20-year-old St. Cloud man has died from injuries sustained after being punched by an unknown attacker.
According to St. Cloud Police, Colton Ryan Gleason was in an alleyway between 8th and 9th Avenues South. The victim was walking south with a group of friends when a four-door, mid-to-full-size passenger car, which was driving north up the alley, stopped. One of the occupants got out of the car and punched Gleason.

No description given for the assailants.
He just stood there and let this guy punch him? Geez. What’s wrong with guys today?
RIP son. Heads up everyone else, because this is just a new urban game. And I’m guessing the puncher was not a Swede.
Reason #1 for CCW/CHL. That said, so many details and much info missing here. Hope the LEOs are on it.
No description = blacks (we all know it)
Check out the comments at the end of the story. People are able to read between the lines.
Yet another white dying to provide amusement for Negroes.
Judging by the comments on the story, a lot of potential Freepers are there. I suspect they’ll remove the comments post haste.

I’ll be really surprised if they are still there when I go to look, and flabbergasted if they are there at noon tomorrow.
I’ve watched this for years now. People “get” it, and the papers hide it.
I just checked them out. I didn’t see any other type of comment. You’re right, they’ll probably remove or close comments.
Color me surprised; the comments are still there.
See my previous, gator. Made that before I saw yours.
The assailants weren’t described, that usually means black. Well, it does. Or Democrats!
Drive By Punching. The puncher should be charged with murder.
And everyone with him should be charged with capital murder.
Hate crime? My gaydar went off.
IF it would have been a black kid, the attacker would also have been black and therfore unworthy of his attention.
NOW maybe the folks up north understand why Southerners are afraid of black people. What we’ve learned to do is be careful not to make eye contact. That enrages them. You have to be quick to apologize if you happen to do anything that might possibly be construed as a “diss.”
It’s almost impossible to have a healthy working relationship. Every single thing a white person does is racist and almost every white person is falsely accused of racism to the boss. It’s hostile work environment where black is always deferred to and given the benefit of the doubt.
Whites are told just to ignore the petty insults and passive aggressive behaviors. I for one am sick and tired of black racism.
Stay away from the punch....and the kool aid.
I would not say that I’m afraid of blacks at all. I’m aware many are prone to violence. Lift weights, learn to fight, and pack heat.
Not surprising at all. Maybe the assailant distracted the victim by first asking for directions, or something like that.
Awhile back I read about a black belt who was walking through a park. He was momentarily distracted by a thug, then beat up pretty bad. You've got to keep you guard up always, but anyone can be distracted.
From the comments, it looks like Freepers are not the only ones that are on to the media’s reporting games.
I hope they catch the SOB.
He does not look like Obama’s son... The puncher did, so this is not a story.
‘Judging by the comments on the story, a lot of potential Freepers are there. ‘
Rather shocking, considering where it happened and the politics of people in that area...
My husband’s best friend was randomly murdered in Minneapolis a few years ago. He was walking his girlfriend to the car after dinner at a restaurant and was hit in the head by a stray bullet. The shooter ran past, still firing his gun in the air. Total thug violence.
The killer was 19 and already had an arrest record for violence. Never should have been walking around. He is spending the rest of his life without parole behind bars.
The most senseless tragedy that has ruined many lives. I feel for this young man’s family.
I just interviewed a kid who grew up in St Cloud. He said the entire area is circling the diversity sewer.
This is in PC, uber tolerant, kinder and gentler Minnesota of all places.
Looks like a lot of people are getting fed up with the violent, racial hatred motivated criminal behavior of the Gang Bangers “ keep’en it real” and the way the media selectively reports about, makes excuses for and and covers up for these criminals.
Is it possible even the very liberal are getting fed up with the behavior of the monster they have created now that the monster is open about it's racist, hate justified and driven violent behavior and is emboldened by the media's sympathetic spin and excuse making for their vicious, unprovoked random sneak attacks on innocent and unsuspecting people of all different races?
Where I live it’s N FL residential/urban blight. I was hanging out at a spot where people sometimes gather for sundowners at the end of the day, and the neighbors boy came riding on his bicycle, wearing a big shiner.
I asked how we got it, and he tried to tell me that he fell... I was tempted to ask what, on a doorknob?
I told him well you need to learn how to fall, and started showing him some of the techniques for absorbing the shock when you fall... he asked where I learned that, and I told him a little bit about my martial arts background back to the 70’s. He thought that was cool.
Long story short, now he, his brothers, and a couple neighborhood kids are showing up for free martial arts class... it just kinda happened.
I have an unusual teaching style... For instance, when the homo activist editor of the Atlantic magazine published an op ed that said all Boy Scouts should be killed, I read it to the boys, and then mentioned that the FBI said that most homicidal pervs attack young children by strangling them...So, today’s lesson is going to be all about defending yourself against a neck grab.
And like that... making them warriors for what the world will be a decade from now...BTW you guessed it... I’m bookmarking this article for class too.
When they figure out the underlying theory behind something, the eyes get all wide open and they have this Ah Ha moment and that’s the best... but they can wear you out, too.
Neighbors got real suspicious and kept asking me how much I was charging to teach the kids and I said nothing. Even the parents seem to think that was a little weird, so I said fine, I like to eat, bring me food, if you make too much for supper, send me a care package.
I have no insurance, there’s probably some legal reason why I shouldn’t be doing it, but I don’t care. I feel a helluva lot more useful. And unfortunately, in this world, I’m dead certain it’ll come in handy for these kids.
Alright...open tiger hands to the shoulders, elbows in, half step forward with the left foot. Dip under the fist and smash the floating rib—GO!!!
I have bacon! ;^)
Read the comments and I am floored.
This is in PC, uber tolerant, kinder and gentler Minnesota of all places.
Don’t get your hopes up that the natives have seen the light. I did not go to the site, but I suspect that anyone from anywhere can post a comment.
“I hope they catch the SOB.”
If they do, I hope they kill him. Instead of some 5-10 years out in three bullcrap.
Good on ya’ for teaching those youngsters.
He just stood there and let this guy punch him?
“Not surprising at all. Maybe the assailant distracted the victim by first asking for directions, or something like that.”
Surprising to me. Stranger jumps out of a car comes towards me, he better stop the ten feet or so away that I WILL tell him to stop and state his business, or he’s gonna get dropped when he gets any closer...it really is that simple. ESPECIALLY in an alley. If the account is correct, the poor young guy assumed he was safe. God bless him, he was an innocent, for sure.
Problem is, if you drop the first guy, his buddies will swarm you. And if you are walking home from a bar, you probably are not carrying a gun, anyway.
Yeah. If the victim was my son, he’d get justice alright.
” the poor young guy assumed he was safe. God bless him, he was an innocent, for sure.”
Problem is, a guy that young, and probably from a good home, is not likely to see the potential for danger. The scumbag attacker probably played on this.
That was the m.o. in a similar incident in NJ.
The perps in that case were never caught, although some pretty clear images of them turned up on a convenience store's surveillance camera.
Oh, and btw: The perps were wearing hoodies.
My style is probably different from what most people are familiar with...I found this YouTube video, that comes closest to the theory behind it: ShaolinDoubleTigerClaw
I started in kenpo in the 70's, then studied taoist huquan (tiger kung fu) starting '89 or so, changed my thinking completely.
Even if you're CCW any MA training makes you more sensitive, think sharper, move better. Many YMCA's have judo classes, and that's a cheap way to get your exercise, and get used to the laying on of hands and thinking and moving fast. My .02c
Walking while white?
Just another bit of Obama “justice.”
"Problem is, if you drop the first guy, his buddies will swarm you."
That's because 10 feet is way too close. There is a 21 foot rule:
Originating from research by Salt Lake City trainer Dennis Tueller and popularized by the Street Survival Seminar and the seminal instructional video "Surviving Edged Weapons," the "rule" states that in the time it takes the average officer to recognize a threat, draw his sidearm and fire 2 rounds at center mass, an average subject charging at the officer with a knife or other cutting or stabbing weapon can cover a distance of 21 feet.
Further in the article the author explains that this distance is not sufficient today and should be increased.
To illustrate, I took a training where, among other things, we learned to draw, fire and hit the target just under 2 seconds. My holster for 9mm is Safariland 6280; it's a rigid one, allowing to draw as fast as you can; I think a concealed carry holster would be slower to draw from. (In this county CCW is a myth, so I don't own any CC equipment.)
In tests "Even the slowest subject "lumbered" through this distance in just 2.5 seconds" - this means that the suspect can be upon you before you have a chance to do anything. Firing a weapon is the fastest, but perhaps you had other actions in mind - using a knife, blocking the strike with something, stepping aside, turning and running... there will be no time for any of that. The 10 feet is so much inadequate that the guy can simply throw a stone and hit you accurately in the head.
If the attacker is armed with a firearm the extra distance also gives you a benefit. Handguns are not easy weapons for an untrained person; the more distance separates you and him the better your chances become. That also gives you time to deal with multiple attackers. Even if you fire 2 rounds per second - which is half of what a trained person does - you will take four attackers down before they reach you. Such losses would be catastrophic even for a psychologically prepared military detachment. Most thugs, hopefully, will not play this version of the game - unless they are on drugs.
Fortunately, South Bay area (San Francisco to San Jose) is relatively safe. Lack of CCW is balanced by that fact, as long as you don't need anything in Oakland. But things may change at any time.
I was just kidding around with you but I do appreciate the serious reply. If you do put up a site like that please ping me to the announcement.
No bacon? :(
Wish I knew that back in '72 when I got my first unprovoked black eye.
“Problem is, if you drop the first guy, his buddies will swarm you. And if you are walking home from a bar, you probably are not carrying a gun, anyway.”
Cripes. If they swarmed, what would happen? I’d get hurt? This poor kid is dead.
