The civility train has left the station. Next stop, marxism.
We can only hope and pray someone comes forward.
“We know they weren’t true Dodger fans,”
Very restrained of them; personally, I’d be asking that they be strung up by their n*ts. For a start.
Sad situation, praying for him and his family.
I don’t mean for my following comments to be a smear against all Dodger fans, there are just a few rotten eggs who are spoiling it for many, the Dodger organization included.
As a fan of a rival team that has beaten the Dodgers in the playoffs the past few years, I won’t ever attend a Dodger game at Chavez Ravine. Coming on the heels of the events of the past few years. A couple of years ago, a guy was stabbed and now this.
It’s unfortunate because I attended a few games in the mid to late ‘90s and the atmosphere was much different than now. Friendly ribbing and chatting about baseball, then.
Not saying this is reserved solely for the Dodgers, there are problems in stadiums across the country. And until the teams get serious about it and do something, count me out.
I won’t endanger mine or my family’s life because some thug who has no comprehension of civililty may do the same to one or all of us.
If I managed any sort of public venue, be it Dodger Stadium or a corner market, I’d install inexpensive surveillance cameras — some conspicuously visible, some not — all over the place, sending images cheaply to a remote server. This once would have been prohibitively expensive, but these days it’s cheap ... cheaper than higher liability insurance. (Of course, if your venue IS big and lucrative, you’d spring for slightly better cameras, etc.)
I’m thinking of this because, Just Damn, wouldn’t it be great to have some nice pictures of these two animals at Dodger Stadium? And of their getaway car, with a good image of its license plate?
Prayers for the poor victim of this senseless attack.
This is bad, and reminds me of the white truck driver beaten by black thugs during the post-Rodney King riots, who suffered permanent brain damage. Finally, some brave citizens stepped in to help him.
In this case, the witnesses did not step in and are not even speaking out afterward. Does this mean they support the Giants fans being beaten? Or anyone who fits a Giants fan “profile?”
Believe me, the racial aspects of this will NOT be discussed publicly in this city.
My guess is that the Los Angeles Dodgers have a stronger interest than anyone else in getting this resolved quickly. As someone who has lived in the New York City area for most of my life and grew up as a fan of the Yankees, I can tell you that one or two incidents like this can depress attendance for decades.
Not saying he deserved to be injured but I find it hard to believe they just singled him out for no reason at all, above all other fans. I would doubt he wasn’t a willing participant in some form and escalating the situation.
Otherwise we’d be seeing this occurring all the time to people that aren’t drunk or getting verbal and obnoxious with fans of other teams. generally this doesn’t happen to people that aren’t getting ‘into it’ with other people.
The act was totally sick, but there is a moral to this incident: Do NOT wear Giants apparel to Dodger Stadium.
Half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, will also be offered on May 4, June 15, June 22, August 10 and August 31. The Dodgers will wear the throwback uniforms in each of those games.
The family of Giants fan Bryan Stow issued a call for civilityYup, that's the Santa Cruz mentality alright...Probably had something to do with why he got beat-up.
“As unfortunate as this situation is, I don’t expect too any “snitches” to come forward..”
La Raza sticks together. Anyone who knows the culture knows that the police won’t get any help even though plenty of people know who did it.
Dodger Stadium has essentially been turned into an extension of the California prison system.
