    Quadriplegic assaulted, robbed in downtown park.

    I was on the local news yesterday talking about this incident. I can't believe some people!

    Police are searching for two men who robbed and assaulted a quadriplegic man and left him on the ground at Lafontaine Park Tuesday afternoon.

    The 59-year-old victim was approached at 4:30 p.m. by two men who asked him for a cigarette, then took his wallet and motorized wheelchair.

    He was left lying helpless on the ground for more than four hours before passersby came to his aid.

    It's times like this that the Hells Angels should seize the opportunity for good publicity

    They're a little too busy running meth.

    Keep us posted on this, Christopher- I'd love to see what happens if they're arrested.

    I bet it's not that warm up there, this could have easily devolved into murder. Assholes. CK, maybe you should explain to your journalists that a para and a quad=/= the same thing?

    I loved the commenter that longed to kneecap. He summed up my own reaction.

    I told the reporter the agressors could potentially be charged with attempted murder, and I told him the difference between quads and paras but you know, they interview you for ten minutes and pare it down to a couple of sound bytes.
