Giants fan beaten at Dodger Stadium in coma, identified as paramedic
Los Angeles Times ^ | April 2, 2011 | Richard Winton

Posted on 04/02/2011 11:49:34 AM PDT by La Enchiladita

The Giants fan who was severely beaten at the end of the Dodgers home opener Thursday is a Santa Cruz paramedic and the father of two children.

Bryan Stow, 42, hit his head on the pavement during the attack and is in a medically induced coma, family members told the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

"He's not doing too well," brother-in-law David Collins told the paper. "He's still unconscious and they just decided to put him in a medically induced coma. They are hoping the brain swelling will go down, but it hasn't and they are talking about removing one of his frontal lobes."

The Los Angeles Police Department released sketches of two suspects in the attack.

The police have video AND witnesses and the perps are not in custody yet???

The attackers, "believed to be two hispanic males," are truly cowards. How about they try the same thing in San Francisco??

Tim Conway jr from Kfi had some details. Just heartbreaking. These two should be in prison.

This sounds less like “Dodger Fan hating Giants Fan” and more like “Mexican KKK hating Gringo”

My guess is they ran back across the border.

That is what these criminals illegals do.

Knowing the percentages of illegals in LA, there’s a chance these punks are already south of the border.

I understand there have been other problems in the lot @ Dodger Stadium in the past even including murder.

This is a shame.

I believe the same.
There are hispanic “fans” who don’t want to see ANY white people at the stadium, either in the stands or on the field.
It won’t be long before they attack some of the players.

If only baseball were legal, we could regulate it and violence would never happen.

The Dopertarians say that about drugs and prostitution anyway.

This is sad, so sad. Prayers up every day for that man. The police are begging for videos taken with people’s phone cameras.

John and Ken were discussing this yesterday. There is a huge Mexican gang presence at Dodgers games. Sickening. This city is going to HELL for these damn illegals. For WHAT??? They cost us far too much to make cheap (read: slave) labor worth it.

LA's probably the safest place for them to stay. Even if they do get caught, the worst that will happen is a free trip back south to visit relatives for a little while.

Everyone panders to the latinos, esp. mexicans, so they figure they own the city and can do what they want.

The Dodgers organization are pandering more than ever. They have even introduced a “Doyer Dog” at the food stands, as ridiculous as that seems.

The liberals are so damn naive. Quite a few conservatives are, too....

I stopped going to professional sporting events a long time ago due to the thug behavior of both fans and players. Thug culture disgusts me and I'm not going to support it with my hard-earned money. Sporting events stopped being family-friendly quite some time ago and it seems to be getting worse.

These perps are worse than pond scum and I hope they are captured and serve very long prison sentences. I'll bet if they are taken into custody, you will fine it's not their first brush with the law.

But another point I'd like to make it that this idiotic Dodgers-Giants rivalry is totally out of control. I've seen Dodger fans hassled and harassed both at old Candlestick and the new Pac-Bell park. So this situation with Giants-Dodgers has escalated into the insanity of a gang type thing. It's totally consistant with the mentality of the types who were the perps in this case. Because of the culture of the people involved now, what use to be a spirited but reasonable rivalry, has taken on the characteristics of a gang situation. Sad and pathetic. But not surprising to those of us who know what's going on.

I do not get the pandering to Latinos, though I see it every day. I love Hispanic Americans, but hate the anchor baby takeover. If I were a genie I would wish NO PUBLIC SERVICES including non-life-saving medical care AND education, for illegals. I’d also wish for $1000 fines per day per hiring an illegal, making everyone scared to hire them,and they’d self deport, and lazy Mexico would have to actually take care of their poverty like 99.99% of all countries on this earth have to do.

Yes, and many of us have been making the same points for over 30 years. Cheap labor isn't cheap but the costs are dispersed across society so that the employers of cheap, illegal labor don't bear the total costs, the taxpayers do. This is why there are so many illegals in those states which have a big welfare structure. If an illegal comes across the border and lands a minimum wage labor job, in the very short term the employer might benefit from that person's labor. But when that same worker brings over or produces 5 or 6 kids who might just get citizenship, we have a very different situation. So the state (read taxpayer) has to pay for the schooling of the children and all the other social costs. If you check into the background of many of the gang members in California, you will find that many are the offspring of illegal immigrants. This is what's been happening in California and a number of other states in the last 40-50 years.

Yes, and if you view the TV report at the link, they even describe the neck tattoos on one of the perps. In addition, there was a female driver waiting in a car for the getaway. License plate #, anyone? Lots of witnesses, so it is known who these trash are. They are long gone and far away by now....

I went to the playoff game at Dodger Stadium in 2006 to see The Mets, clad in team gear. The only seats we could obtain were in the pavillion (bleachers). On my way to the restroom in the 7th inning, a hand grabbed me - LAPD. “If you’re going in there, put your hat in your pocket, and turn your jacket inside out”. A bit extreme, I thought, but I complied.

He saved my life.

Try that is San Francisco? Then what? After the beating go back to work at a hotel on Fisherman’s Wharf?

You have a bunch of lilly-white Gigantes(from their own jerseys) fans in the belly of the beast talking sh#t. What do you think would happen?

My prayers for Bryan Stowe's family.
The most popular Professional sports have degenerated into what has been called "Thugball." I have no idea how, exactly, that evolved (nor do I care) but when the 'Tude spread from the players to a significan portion of the fans, it became a cultural corner I've learned to live without it for decades, now. Life is too short.

Had this been a Seattle Mariners game in Seattle, the attackers would be dead. In Washington, you are allowed to carry concealed.

I've been to exactly one game, and it was in Seattle- in the King Dome. I had to go- I was part of the halftime show. Long time ago, though.

My great grandpop played pro baseball, way back in the 1880s, IIRC. I am tempted to believe that things were different back then, but they had their raucous, over the top types then, too.

About ten years ago, now, a co-worker's brother was murdered after leaving a game at Candlestick Park and stopping to use a pay phone to get directions. Not sure if the perps were ever found.

If the guy would have been carrying there would have been 2 dead Mexican thugs. Had it played out in that fashion and because Kafilfornia caters to anyone who isn't a wage earning Caucasian he would have gone to jail and the 2 dead thugs would be the victims. It was a lose lose for the victim as it were.

A Giants fan was murdered in the Dodger Stadium parking lot a couple years ago. You don’t see the gang element at AT&T Park. The crowd there is suburban and gentrified. The park stops selling beer in the 7th inning. Also, the parking lot is only 5,000 spaces, expensive, and mainly limited to season ticket holders. Most fans arrive by public transportation or park blocks away. You can’t make a quick getaway at AT&T Park. There is a strong security presence inside and around the park. AT&T Park is a first-class, fan-friendly operation.

Hunter’s Point, the neighborhood surrounding Candlestick, is one of the worst in SF. I used to go to Giants games at the Stick, but that was in the late 80s/early 90s, and it wasn’t quite as bad.

This is horrible. For them to attack Bryan & his two friends like COWARDS, from the back, earns them a spot in hell. And a quick one, too. I doubt the Giants fans were talking smack in the parking lot. Prayers up...

“We may not win many championships in Houston, but things like this make me appreciate the fact that we have mostly polite, well-behaved sports fans.”

It’s the same with the players. I admire the respect that the Houston and St. Louis players have for each other. Even though I’m a Cardinal fan, there’s something I’ve always liked about Lance Berkman, and I thought it was shame when Houston traded him. I am thrilled that he’s now a Cardinal. I’m sure Astros fans will give The Big Puma a warm welcome when the Cards play their first game there (if he doesn’t get injured first).

Like I posted in another thread, dont even try IF YOU ARE WHITE to watch at Dodger stadium above lower level...

It’s a La Raza festival. Good thing I’m Italian-Asian mix and 6 feet tall so whenever I watch my Mariners visit L.A., the mexicans dont bother me. But I feel for my obviously gringo buds who watch the game with me.

Mariner fans are a disgusting lot! We go every year when the Yankees come to town and the mean spirited, ugly comments are really awful! Meanwile went to LA last year when the Yankess were there and I was scared for my life in that place. The stadium guards were searching pockets for knives, guns or any other kind of weapon available! WE were saying that if ICE came in raided the place we would have been sitting there alone!

I went to Dodger games at the Colisium and then the first few years at Dodger Stadium, early and mid 60s.

Nobody fought. White people did not dress and act like minorities and x-convicts.

You have to understand, California is doomed, once the whites leave (which is soon - I live here and am looking now), it’s done, finished

There is nothing but car lots, restaurants and liquor stores across most of Los Angeles. I was there yesterday visiting and the areas are more like Tijuana than America.

There is no border, the influx is huge and has taken to the Social Services for citizens, it’s a disaster.
