A 13-year-old boy was attending a Montana county fair and rodeo on Saturday when he failed to remove his hat during the national anthem. Moments later, a man slammed him to the ground and fractured his skull. The boy began seizing.
The man, 39-year-old Curt James Brockway, had allegedly attacked the boy for his “disrespect,” a witness told the Missoulian. Brockway was soon arrested and charged with assault on a minor for the attack at the Mineral County Fair and Rodeo.
"He was bleeding out of his ears, seizing on the ground, just not coherent,” Taylor Hennick, a rodeo attendee, told the Missolian. As people started to surround Brockway, the man defended himself by saying the boy “was disrespecting the national anthem, so he had every right to do that,” Hennick added.
I guarantee he was a typical angry conservative Trump supporter
His attacker, it turns out, was already a registered violent offender for a 2010 assault with a weapon, according to the Missoulian. He’s on probation for that charge, but was released from jail on his own recognizance, or a promise to appear for his future court date on Aug. 14.
Anyway, I guarantee he was a typical angry conservative Trump supporter... I'd say he was probably even wearing his MAGA hat when he assaulted this child, but I guess he would've already taken it off for the National anthem.

Trump made me do it
That is his defense
Obviously he owes a big portion of accountability for what took place.
Jasper also told the Billings Gazette that a traumatic brain injury sustained in a car accident 19 years ago has severely hampered Brockway’s judgment. The accident, which damaged his frontal lobe, the part of the brain typically associated with problem-solving and make rational decisions, was the reason for his discharge from the military.
