While businesses burned to the ground and black mobs ran wild through the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday night, an elderly white man, dependent on oxygen to breathe, strolled out to his car in the parking lot of a pizza joint to retrieve an oxygen tank from his car.
Moments later, he was brutally attacked by marauding thugs “seeking justice” for Mike Brown.
A TV news crew looking to capture scenes of the protesters’ carnage along a main thoroughfare in town, Florissant Road, drove up to Faraci Pizza before emergency crews arrived and videotaped the victim lying crumpled on the pavement, his oxygen tank perched across his body.
“You need to take us live. Some gentlemen was in his car, he was on oxygen, they stole his car, left him on the ground. We’re standing here where he is,” said reporter Robin Smith of KMOV-TV.
In the video, eyewitnesses can be heard telling the news crew the man was beaten with his oxygen tank, which was then used to smash the window of his car. The attackers fled the scene in the man’s vehicle and ran over the victim in the process.
