SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY HOMELESS VIETNAM VETERAN BRUTALLY BEATEN & ROBBED!!!



An important reminder that harsh times continue the rising metro homeless population . . .

Take a look:

Fox4: Homeless veteran severely beaten, robbed but getting help soon from metro nonprofit

Deeets:

James Dodge has been homeless since Christmas. He knows by living on the streets, his life could be in danger at any moment.

Late Sunday night, that fear became all too real.

“I seem to recall I was walking to a store and a guy just came up behind me and hit me in the back of my head and on top of my head with what felt to be a metal pipe or a hammer, and he was punching me in my face," Dodge said. "I fell to the ground, and he kept kicking me. It still hurts to walk right now because he kicked me in my spine."

Paramedics rushed the injured veteran to the hospital. The attacker ran off with $25 he stole from Dodge's pockets.

“I would have given him the money," Dodge told Fox 4's Robert Townsend from his hospital bed. "He put me through a lot and could have killed me over $25. People are so crazy today, and there’s just no compassion. They don’t care."

You decide . . .

Diversity is so wonderful in this rapidly becoming, "Shithole" city.

I wonder how (actually, whether) the non-profit group confirms that the people it chooses to help are in fact veterans.

And I wonder why Fox4 reporter failed the basics, to include WHERE this happened...

Disgusting. I hope the person that did this gets their ass arrested. As for the vet, here’s wishing him a full recovery and better times ahead.

9:47, the Five Commandments of journalism (who, what, where, when and why) have been re-issued as the Five Suggestions. Or maybe they're like Activities of Daily Living: if you can hit on three out of five, you qualify as an able journalist.

Why can't homeless vets be allowed some room and board at a armed forces base located close to where they live. I don't mean some asshole like Byron but a true vet who is down on his luck.

Another one for the KCPD cold case file.

Good thing he had 25 dollars or he would have been killed.

12:38, Rev. Carwash and his ordained friends should open all their charitable Churches to the homeless, huh?
