3 Suspects Charged in Brutal Beating of Iraq War Veteran

Surveillance video caught a brutal beating of an Iraq war veteran at a Mobil gas station in Washington Park, IL on October, 14, 2015. Now, almost 4 months later, all three suspects in the violent beating of that Iraq War veteran are in custody.

Deion Sanders, Lamarcus Evans and Earl Agnew are in custody and have been charged with aggravated battery and mob action.

According to police, all three of the suspects beat the man who served in Iraq twice. Then, after their brutal beating that left him bleeding and fighting for his life, they poured alcohol on his face and ran him over with their car as they fled the scene.

The Iraq war veteran suffered severe injuries to his shoulders, head and ribs but survived the attack.

“It’s horrible to think that you could go fight for your country, raise your right hand and take the oath and say that you will fight for your country, and you come home and after fighting the enemies, come home to a gas station and get beat up. It’s just tragic,” Washington Park Police Chief, Tony Tomlinson said.

Evans and Agnew were arrested and charged in connection with the beating just days after the incident, but Sanders was on the run until recently.

Why are they attacking, harming, beating and killing our war veterans…our hero’s? I say if you attack a veteran you either leave the country for ever. Permanently banished end of story! Disgusting who raised these three animals? The parents should be punished too! Scum bags

That goes to show you how weak our youth has gotten, not only to they gang-bang on someone but then run over him when he is down. When I was young it would be one on one. You won you shook hands and sometimes became friends. We are not a barbaric society but those boys should be run over by a vehicle. But no They will be sent to prison with three squares, tv, and gym. We are really a messed up society.

They need to be charged with attempted murder or taken to the nearest military base and let the men serving their country know what they done to the veteran, and let the active veterans do onto them as they did to the Iraqi Veteran!

Send them to a war zone and see if they survive or let them be treated like the animals the are in prison.
