I want to say right off the bat, that a suspect has been arrested in this crime. Let’s let the justice system do it’s job in this case. But if this suspect is the one that did this, I say throw the book at whomever it was.

A man suspected of being one of the two assailants in the brutal beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium was taken into custody early this morning, Los Angeles police sources say.

At about 7 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department SWAT team descended on an East Hollywood apartment building
with a warrant in hand. According to apartment building manager Maritza Camacho, police, using loudspeakers and with guns drawn, called out to the occupants of Apartment 25. Inside was one of the men police suspect in the March 31 beating that left Stow with brain damage.

Several police sources confirmed that the man taken into custody was one of the two suspects in the beating.

The two assailants repeatedly kicked and punched Stow while he was on the ground. Stow’s friends attempted to help, and were also punched and kicked before the attackers fled in a car driven by a woman wearing an Andre Ethier
jersey. Police said it appeared there also was a 10-year-old boy in the car.

Wow. Can we take this a step further? Can we assume that Stow was beaten up for reasons other than being a Giants fan?

What if this was racially motivated? Well? What if it was? Don’t we have laws in this country from this sort of thing? How do they proove it? Isn’t it something that is on everyone’s mind but no one is saying it?

My prayers are for the Stow family. My prayers are also that justice, true justice will prevail here.
