Veterans Brutally Attacked By Black Lives Matter Activists

In San Antonio, Texas on Thursday evening, a U.S. Army National Guard Staff Sergeant reported that he and one of his close Army friends were viciously assaulted by a group of Black Lives Matter supporters.

“As I was getting my face stomped in and thrown through a window, they (all 4 of them) were yelling racial slurs saying how whites sucked and black lives were better,” Mark Stephen, the second victim, said on Facebook.

Stephen went on to report that the San Antonio police were of little help and that the two severely injured veterans had to Uber to the nearest hospital.

Staff Sergeant Zach Coe Johnson also shared on Facebook the gruesome details of the incident and that his injuries included 8 stitches on his face, several staples to the back of the head, a broken nose, as well as a broken cheekbone. Unfortunately Johnson remembers little from the attack as he was knocked unconscious.

During his time as a staff sergeant he served in the Army National Guard, 1St Batallion, 133rd Field Artillery unit. One of the soldiers that served with Johnson on multiple tours admitted that Johnson was,

“One of the best soldiers I know.” He added, “And he is very nice too.”

Johnson recently posted, “the culprits left quickly before the cops came but both of us have been at VA hospital since.”

Eric Crombie is another close friend of Johnson and had posted,

“Be aware of your surroundings, think about the information you reveal about yourself to people you don’t know and I know it’s not always possible but when you can have a battle buddy. We look out for each other. These guys were ambushed but avoid confrontations, don’t let people bait you. Finally I’ll add this, it’s a personal decision but I carry 24/7 and avoid places I can’t carry.”

What happened to JUSTICE. Blind Justice !!!!!!! And respect for our fellow man
As A Medical Service Corp Officer In Vietnam I know, I’ve seen that once the skin is burned off or blow away, black, white, brown we are all the same. Just a different amount of pigment in people whose ancestors came from different places in our one world.

Im a Texas veteran myself. That this could happen sickens me, in this state…at some point people will have to stand up and say that’s enough. How many more times will this happen before that point in time becomes now? The time of thinking “that cant possibly happen to me,” has to end. Insanity can not reign in our streets folks it just cant!

I read the article twice, and truly hope that, as a veteran myself, my brother in arms gets better swiftly. Ambushes and attacks of many against one or very few are, by their very nature, the tactics of the desperate, or cowards.
That being said, I believe, based on the article written, and the soldier’s quote within, the headline of the article should be changed, and again, swiftly.
In this era where those who seek to divide us all, and pit Americans against each other, headlines like this are inflammatory. A verbal parting shot from the perpetrators of this inexcusable incident, does not make them Black Lives Matter supporters. It marks them as small minded, and hateful, but not members of a movement, whose goal is to remind the nation at large that black lives matter TOO. Please, don’t give into the hype and sensationalism.
Our politicians have gotten used to using whatever means it takes to secure votes, forgetting the impact it has on the populace at large, and our brothers and sisters in the field. I implore you not to fall for the rhetoric.
