Montana Man Attacks Little Boy for ‘Disrespecting the National Anthem’

by | Aug 6, 2019

Don’t you upset my little feelings during government’s special song, boy! Or else!:

A Montana man allegedly assaulted a 13-year-old boy who he believed had disrespected the American national anthem at a county fair in the state. Curt James Brockway, 39, of Superior, is accused of assaulting the boy at the Mineral County Fair and Rodeo at around 11 p.m. on Saturday.

“There was a little boy lying on the ground,” Taylor Hennick, who was as the rodeo, told Missoulian. “He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent.”

According to KPAX, witnesses saw a man pick up a boy and throw him to the ground. Brockway reportedly tried to justify his actions to nearby fairgoers. Hennick told Missoulian: “He said [the boy] was disrespecting the national anthem so he had every right to do that.”

The unnamed boy’s parents said his ears bled for six hours after the incident and that his skull was fractured. He was taken by air ambulance to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane.
