A particularly hilarious one.
An Ocean Shores man said he was attacked for confronting two men for not wearing masks, and now he’s worried police are not properly investigating the case.
Daniel Troublefield, 43, said he was at the Ocean Shores IGA Sunday night when he called someone out for not wearing a mask. Inside the store, he said the conversation turned heated, But he thought that was the end of it. However, he was not expecting what happened once he walked outside.
“I curled up in the fetal position and I was just ready to die,” said Troublefield.
Oh well, better luck next time. For the rest of us, I mean.
He shared this surveillance video with KIRO 7 News, which he got from the neighboring drug store. The video shows him in the parking lot walking out to his white car, but he walks past it as he was taunted by the maskless men.
“They kept berating me with expletives, calling me a snowflake and it’s not science, it’s a hoax,” Troublefield recalled.
Looking back, Daniel said he wishes he ignored them.
“To my regret I walked up to the car. I was trying to explain it is science and you should be wearing a mask because you’re endangering me and everyone else in the store by not having a mask on,” Troublefield said.
That’s when things escalated even further.
“The gentleman tapped on my chest. And I flipped up his hat, and that’s when they both got out of the car,” Troublefield explained.
“One grabbed me by the neck in a chokehold and got me down to the ground. And before I knew it, I was getting my face pummeled with fists,” Troublefield explained.
The beating lasted about 20 seconds. The men took off and now he’s worried they’re going to get away and he won’t get justice.
Oh, you got justice in spades, Mary Sue. You just didn’t like it much, being too goddamned stupid to recognize it even when it smears your nose all over your goddamned face for ya.
Troublefield, a disabled Marine veteran,
WHAAAAT?!? Appalling. Somewhere, Chesty Puller weeps.
said he never threw one punch and even passed out.
Okay wait, are we SURE this guy was really a Marine? Because from the way the story is shaping up, we’re gonna need some solid documentation of that claim before just accepting it on faith.
His nose is now fractured, he’s had to get stitches, and he’s got bruises on his face and body.
Bill has a most delightful After photo portraying the damage done. Y’all might enjoy viewing it as much as I did, maybe. Although I can’t for the life of me imagine how.
“I’d like to see the two gentleman locked up in jail. I’d like for them to pay for what they did,” Troublefield said. “I don’t think any human being deserves to be treated like I was treated.”
So let’s tot all this up then, shall we? You:
- Stuck your oar in where it wasn’t wanted, starting a “heated” confrontation in a store with two guys guilty of nothing more than minding their own business and acting like normal, sane, free Americans
- Breezed RIGHT ON PAST your own car, going well out of your way seeking to dick around some more with two already-pissed-off dudes, thereby escalating a confrontation YOU provoked in the first damned place
- Reached into a private vehicle and “flipped up” Already Pissed Off Dude’s cap, thereby committing the crime of assault against him, probably battery as well
- Got your miserable ass whupped, but good
Didn’t “deserve” such treatment? Au contraire, cupcake; I’d say you got PRECISELY the treatment you deserved, and should try to enjoy it. God knows you worked hard enough to earn it.
This contemptible disgrace to the Corps goes on to pule about how he and his wife are “compelled” to don the Magic Mask of Submission because they suffer from unspecified “preexisting conditions,” the poor widdle dears. To which I can only offer: stay the fuck home then, you pitiful pissant. In stark contrast with the more-robust gents who dealt out the just deserts, it’s obvious that you’re too sick to be gadding about out of doors—your condition compounded by a potentially life-threatening deficiency of good sense and politesse enough to prevent your alligator mouth from writing checks your hummingbird ass can’t cash and winding up in hospital over it.
An ex-Marine, no less. Hard to believe; harder still to swallow. But there it is, Gawd help us.
