An Air Force mechanic’s scheduled deployment to Europe was put on hold because a “Black Lives Matter” activist allegedly sucker-punched him outside the Transit Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, fracturing his jaw.
The incident occurred last year, after Matthew Whitehurst, 23, left a pre-season football game at Bank of America Stadium. He and two friends were reportedly looking to get something to eat when they were ambushed by activists.
One of the protesters, whom Whitehurst told his dad was “a black male with a red bandana and dreadlocks,” punched him as he turned around.
“And there were probably 15 to 20 of them that looked like,” Whitehurst’s father, Todd, added.
The activists had been in the area to protest the acquittal of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Officer Randall Kerrick, who in September 2013 killed black man Jonathan Ferrell in self-defense.
Apparently, demonstrators felt that, in addition to protesting, it would also be appropriate to attack a random stranger, one who happened to be a member of our armed forces.
Whitehurst’s father was not pleased.
“A bunch of hoodlums that are throwing their lives away punched my son from behind who is serving his country and has his stuff together,” he said to reporters.
He added, “I just drove my son home who has his jaw wired shut, and a mandible fracture in two with a plate and his jaw wired shut, and he threw up on the way home with his mouth shut.”
According to WNCN-TV, even though police released surveillance footage of a suspect, no arrest has been reported in the media as of 2017.
What happened to Matthew Whitehurst is truly sickening, not that “Black Lives Matter” activists care. They care about him as much as they care about Jamyla Bolden, which is to say they don’t care about either one of them (H/T IJ Review).
All they care about and have ever cared about are — of course — thugs, because they themselves are in fact nothing more than thugs.
