Former Washington Post reporter beaten at Walmart while living in his truck

Raw Story covered this heinous situation, and it seems like a message/warning we should all receive if we aren't dedicated violence junkies or Gun Fondlers.

A former reporter who worked for both The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal said this week that he expected to be blind in one eye after being badly beaten in a Walmart parking lot.

Not a kerfluffle over a poppy stand on some mountain range in Afghanistan … an effing Walmart in Montana.

Les Gapay, 70, told the Missoulian that he had recently left his Section 8 housing in California to move back to Montana, but he was forced to live out of his truck while he was waiting for a senior apartment to open up.

cautious

When Gapay arrived in Billings on Sunday night, he said it was too late to find a campsite, so he decided to spend the night at the Mullan Road Super Walmart. After using the bathroom inside the store, two men approached him.

“These two guys came up to me and were obviously drunk,” he recalled. “They started saying they wanted to shake hands with me.” He told the men that he did not want to shake hands, then he said that one of the men “slugged me right in the chest.” As Gapay tried to call police, the man continued to hit him. He said that a third man arrived and began punching him in the eye.

I imagine there's someone to phrase the overview, with more punch; as I can't get past the assembling Posse in Missoula, seemingly played on one of those Sony/Black Box dealios in your Mom's basement.
