Posted on 08/11/2008 3:25:35 PM PDT by Main Street
A wolf pack of at least 30 thugs viciously attacked two hero ex-Marines in Brooklyn after they rescued a teenage girl who was being assaulted, police and witnesses said yesterday. And when the brother of one of the former servicemen tried to come to his rescue during the July 25 melee in Coney Island, he was beaten into a coma. The former leathernecks, Valentyn Olenyev, 23, and Boris Bukler, 22, Russian émigrés who served tours in Iraq, were walking a female friend to her parked car on West 23rd Street at 12:30 a.m. when they spotted two men holding the screaming teen by her hands and legs. "She was yelling, 'Help!' "..."It wasn't our intention to get into a fight," said Bukler. "We said, 'Let the girl go, and we'll leave.' We told them, 'Stop.' "She was screaming, and all we did was look to help her. I got a bottle smashed over my head, and after that, I started fighting. But I got beat down. "I was getting my ass kicked by 50 people." Their friend called Olenyev's brother, Ivan, 22. "When I showed up, there were a lot of people there, people on the left and people on the right, and then - 'Boom!' - I got hit and passed out,"...Police sources said he was pounded senseless by 240-pound Timothy Dixon, 23, who was swinging a metal baseball bat. Ivan suffered multiple facial fractures and will require plastic surgery. The NYPD is looking for Dixon, who remains at large....The two former Marines, meanwhile, insist that the violence had racial overtones, although the assault has not been labeled a bias crime. Bukler said, "Those in the crowd were yelling, 'Hey, white boys, you're in the 'hood now!' We were yelling back, 'We don't care - we live here!'

Did the girl get away?
Looks like Coney Island is still a tough part of Brooklyn.
Just your typical Obama supporters.
God Bless the brave heroic Marines (no such thing as ex-Marine! Dammit NYP! Murtha is an ex-Marine!).
Thank goodness nobody had a gun. Somebody could have gotten hurt.
It said she did.
Still trying to figure out why the Marine’s friend didn’t call the cops...
A BIAS crime? The media commits as "bias" crime by not labeling it as a HATE crime.
Is Barack Obama going to visit these wounded Marines?
Or is he afraid of losing the all important thug vote he’s been courting?
“Hey white boys, you are in the hood now.”
That’s great. That’s just great. I bet these thugs are voting for McCain.
Maybe he did. Where are you seeing that she got away?
‘Hey, white boys, you’re in the ‘hood now!’
Time to clean out the “hood” of these racist thugs.
Nope. No racism here. Move along.
“Is Barack Obama going to visit these wounded Marines?”
That would be a great question to ask him.
Hey, no media bias here. It’s only a hate crime if white guys beat up a black guy, but not vice versa. That clear it up?
These guys deserve our undying gratitude, a medal and a program (Americans of slavic extraction are not on the official list of aggrieved minorities - they are on the wrong side of the official double standard).
Savages. ‘Nuff said.
Let me guess:
White on black crime is a "hate crime"
Black on white crime is a "bias crime"
Also the writer should know their are only a few "ex marines": Murtha etc, the rest are former-Marines
There are no two groups, when brought into close company, that will get into a bigger brawl, than Russian immigrants and young urban blacks males.
Not saying the Russians in this instance did anything wrong.
Russians emigrees are whites without any white guilt and will not tolerate any what what from any street thug types.
“Russians emigrees are whites without any white guilt and will not tolerate any what what from any street thug types.”
The way it should be.
From the link:

Bukler said, “Those in the crowd were yelling, ‘Hey, white boys, you’re in the ‘hood now!’ We were yelling back, ‘We don’t care - we live here!’
Of couurse the WHITE EX MARINES being ATTACKED by NON WHITES isn’t a “hate crime”. Clearly COLOR mattered.
The teenage girl fled after the melee.
No such thing as an ex marine I have been told :)
Yep, I would expect to see retaliation from the Russian immigrant community. These damn idiots are going to get themselves into a real trick one of these days when they not knowingly tangle with the Russian mob.
Animals. And they should be treated as such.
It's crawling with the Obomination type degenerates.
Nah. . . the Department of Justice won’t be interested.
Wow, that’s pretty sad. What happened, it wasn’t really clear. The girl was being attacked, the article didn’t say by who, the ex-Marines stepped in to help, and the whole neighborhood turned on them because they were white? That’s what I read, though it wasn’t very clear. But if that’s how it happened, it sounds very sad. Is this country worth defending with slobs like that occupying the inner cities?
“Thats just great. I bet these thugs are voting for McCain.”
Are people with long criminal records who are on probation allowed to vote?
sarc sarc sarc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What will this country become??????
Those guys are heroes butyou don’t take fists to that kind of fight. Looks like the streets need cleaning.
Have you ever been in a bar fight? Hand-to-hand combat? Have you ever gone to the aid of a friend in a fight?
I’ve been in all three. Unfortunately there isn’t time sometimes to stop and dial 911. Sometimes the only thing to do is defend the innocent and help your friends and hope like hell one of the innocent bystanders who can’t, won’t or is just not going to help, calls the cops.
Sometimes, you gotta fight.
Good on the Marines.
This happened July 25th & it’s just now making the paper? How long have they been sitting on this? (Police? City Officials? News Editors?)
Hey Marines. In the good old days, whenever a Marine was beat up by a mob, you could bet your bottom dollar that next time, there would be a LOT more Marines around. And the mob would lose.
I had a great uncle who was a senior Marine NCO. Had any of his Marines been attacked, he would have had a platoon pay a visit to that bad part of town on a “sightseeing” tour.
Sometimes the old ways are better.
He would double park in front, get out, and lean against the car . . . watching me while I went inside and ordered.
We never had any trouble but if we had, he wouldn't have hesitated to pull out his S&W .38, which was legal for him to carry as a LEO.
It wouldn’t hurt my feelings at all so see some sort of white vigilante justice, some kind of retaliation for what seems to happen with impunity.
Silence from Obama on the incident.
In most states, yes.
Towards the end; it says that that Marine's female friend called the brother, but no mention of the police.
This sounds like a job for a lot of ex-marines, at night, with stuff...
read the article - a good guy was beaten into a coma....I think he was hurt without a gun.
Well, there was time for her to call one of the men’s brother, who arrived in plenty of time to get his ass kicked.
I’m jut wondering if maybe she knew the police wouldn’t even show up...
I don’t carry any “white guilt” and I am from here!
Another hate crime that will be labeled something else, such as 2 marines instigate minorities defending themselves.
