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.
