    My cousin and a friend were walking around in Baltimore, MD for halloween. He had served in the military and was wearing his uniform, I guess as a costume.

    I haven't personally spoken with him, but from what I've heard, he got hit by a guy or a group of guys and they started beating him unconscious, he suffered some pretty bad injuries and needed some stitches and cracked some teeth. Apparently, the friend that was with him was not touched but the guys that assulted him got away.

    My family is wondering why this happened? My initial thoughts were that maybe an Iraqi or some anti-war guys decided to single him out. What are everyones thoughts on this incident?

    I'd venture to guess it has less to do with the uniform and more the wrong part of town



    Bullshit either way though, you would think people would have a little respect/courtesy for someone in a real military uniform, granted it was halloween....

    I walked through a sketchy neighborhood in uniform once. Nobody messed with me and I even got a head nod. I get a sense of security when I'm in uniform.

    Should have been carrying a rifle with his costume. Might have helped.

    Only one way to find out.

    When ever you do talk to him, tell him to get some new damn friends.
