Seattle -- Help Find
Men Cowards Who Beat Two Soldiers
Seattle CQ readers should keep an eye out for these three men who severely beat two US soldiers who had just returned from Iraq and went out for a night on the town:

KOMO-TV reports that these three mouthbreathers started the festivities by molesting women accompanying the soldiers at the dance club where the beating took place. The TV station has also posted the disturbing videotape of the attack on its website.
The brutality of it all was captured on tape outside of Larry's Nightclub on First and Yesler on July 31. Police say the victims were with two women who'd been groped by the suspects. One of the women threw a hot dog at the suspects and walked away.
They didn't get very far. The three suspects ran after them and began attacking the two men -- two soldiers who'd come home from the war.
The graphic videotape shows both victims getting beaten over and over again, and then after one of the victims loses consciousness, a suspect starts stomping on his head.
The soldiers still are recovering, more than three weeks after the beating. Both of them suffered broken jaws and other broken bones as a result of this crime, but Seattle police have not yet found the perpetrators of this attack. These idiots appear mighty pleased with themselves. Maybe we can get lucky and a CQ reader can identify at least one of the trio, and ruin his year. If anyone recognizes these morons, please contact the Seattle PD at 206/343-2020.
