Byrd, it says he was lured there. He recieved a phone call requesting him to meet at the bar. This kind of thing happens a lot when your testifying against someone. I'm surprised he wasn't killed to keep him quiet.

As esdad said, we're taking this the wrong way.
If someone at Los Alamos wanted to shut him up, I don't think they would slap him upside the head. Why? Because he's shown that he talks already. Why would you beat his ass down and give him the opportunity to talk again.
If you want to keep a guy with a habit of being to chatty from talking, you make sure the opportunity doesn't arise again. Letting him talk is stupid. Finish the job or don't do anything.
This is a guy getting his ass beat outside a strip club for reasons unknown to most of us I'm sure.

The local Fox channel, KASA-TV, is reporting that employees of Cheeks have said that nothing happened in the club to indicate that anything was wrong the night that Hook visited the bar. They said that he was not a regular customer and that he was well behaved while he was there.
Peter Stockton, senior investigator for the Project on Government Oversight in Washington, D.C., questioned whether police looked for any evidence of a connection between the beating and Hook's status as a whistleblower.
"Did they get the phone records to determine who called that Saturday night? They did not get the phone records. Did they do background checks on the assailants. No, they did not. Did they conduct polygraph tests? No, they did not," Stockton said.

I wouldn't trust the cops take on this particularly.
