AN 84-YEAR-OLD ex-university official savagely attacked by four young punks during a walk in Wissahickon Valley Park earlier this week theorizes that the beating he endured was a cruel game of "get the old geezer."
Jim Shea, a former vice president of university relations for Temple, from 1968 to 1983, walks up to five miles on Forbidden Drive, in Fairmount Park, three times a week, but that type of stamina wasn't enough to stave off the lowlifes who not only beat him bloody, but dealt a blow to one of the things he holds most dear - his pride.
Shea was near the Valley Green Inn, on Forbidden Drive, in the Wissahickon Valley Park, about 1:15 p.m. Monday when he was hit from behind.
"I felt a real something to the head, a real blow to the head from behind," he said. "It knocked me to the ground; that was the biggie."
Shea said the four assailants continued to beat him for minutes while he was on the ground. He said they were black, appeared to be between 16 and 20, and three of them were wearing La Salle sweatshirts.
Police and Shea said that at least one of the attackers used a rock to hit him, causing deep cuts above his eyes. They all kicked and punched him while he was on the ground, conscious the entire time.
"There was only one I really saw well because he came back to kick me," Shea said. "The others spent a great deal of the time laughing."

An even better game would have been ‘old geezer with a gun’
Walking on Forbidden Drive without a gun?
Maybe he should have thought about that.
I guess there is a reason why the call it that....ya think?
Cowardly lowlife trash - I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.
In a healthy society, elderly people are treated with respect, even reverence. This kind of attack shows how far our culture has devolved. And I’m sure there are plenty of liberals who will defend the savages who beat Mr. Shea. A part of their thinking, though they aren’t quite to the point of admitting it publically, will be that an 84-year-old man is a “useless mouth,” a person of no value who will probably die soon anyway.
Only if said old geezer gets to the range to practice enough to confidently blow .45 cal holes through said lowlifes. Exsanguinated puke punks tell no tales.
Obama´s Death Panels.
Why couldn’t they have been wearing Temple U., or Drexel shirts? Then it would’ve been more convincing!!!!! How dare those thugs impugn the Christian Brothers!
“This kind of attack shows how far our culture has devolved.”
My family, my friends, my employees and EVERYONE I know are not even remotely part of THAT culture.
Conquest brings joy to the victors. An excess of joy causes occasional attacks upon the vanquished people-Spartans and their Helots comes to mind. We must become used to these occasional excesses and learn techniques to persuade the conquerors not to assault us. There are techniques one can learn in order to avoid a severe beating; such as averting the eyes, keeping the hands at one’s sides, shuffling the feet, frequent use of the term “master.”
Yea and as the economy worsens and as we draw nearer to the election there will be more and more of this, so much so that the MSM will stop reporting on it.
I'm sure the PR statement is already written stating there is no evidence of racism in the attack, and if there was it was because he taunted the disadvantaged youth by walking through their hood.
So this was yet another defenseless white person attacked by multiple racist black criminals for no reason other than race hatred, right?
Just don’t call it a Hate Crime.
Light , low recoil, and stings like a biatch, or worse.
