I should be happy with the results, but just got a call from my brother's Mike's wife in CO.

He was jumped by a very sore loser while watching the results at a bar he and his wife Genie occasionally goes to while watching the election results. From what she told, Mike got a lil tipsy and was celebrating the Obama win when some guy sucker punched him and started wailing on him until the bouncers and bartender dragged him out and held him til police arrived. And she said it looks pretty bad, now me and my husband is flying to CO. to be with him for a couple days. What turned into a very glorious day, ended up a nightmare. I ask you say a prayer for him. Hopefully it's just a concussion.

52. WTF? Why do you think this type of information should be shared

On the internet???

Either believe or ignore, but the poster is talking about a tough family time, and even the idea of asking them to "prove" who they are while dealing with a family crisis is abhorrent and insulting.

Good heavens, it wasn't that long ago I posted about a medical breakthrough situation, and was asked by a bunch of idiots to give the names and phone numbers of the medical professionals I deal with - and "my brother got beat up in a bar/I'm on the way to deal with it" isn't even in the same league, so providing a police report (with all of the identifying information) is pretty darned ridiculous on an ANONYMOUS message board.

If they were asking for money, that would be one thing, but for pete's sake, BLECH!

34. Oh My!

FFS - what is wrong with these people? My brother is in Colorado and last week he got brave enough to put an Obama bumper sticker on his truck. This after working a job (finally after 2+ years of unemployment) for 90 days and getting HEALTH insurance for the first time in many years. His employer pulled the "vote for Romney" or else crap and he is now a bit worried about tomorrow!

I hope your brother is okay - we have to have each others back!

Susan

And for those in this thread who doubt the validity of this post, GCG doesn't say where this was in Colorado, but if it wasn't in Denver, you'd be unlikely to find it readily on Google, especially on such a big news day. Colorado's only large paper is the Denver Post and I can assure you living about 40 minutes outside of Denver that news elsewhere in the state rarely makes its pages unless it's really bad - murders, child abductions, multi-car wrecks on I-70 during blizzards. Bar fights simply don't rank as news - they happen too often.

My brother Mike is doin well. Came in just in time before he got a CAT scan of his brain for damage and thankfully there isn't any at all. Just suffered a moderate concussion and some stitches on his mouth and head. I'll have more details Sunday when I am back in Oregon.
