    Police questioned several teenagers Thursday in connection with a brutal, random beating of a 64-year-old war veteran, and sources said they expected arrests to be made soon.

    Several juveniles contacted police after seeing news reports of the Tuesday-evening assault in Olney, which left the victim hospitalized with a fractured skull and jaw, as well as other serious injuries to his face, head, and a hand.

    The role of the juveniles being questioned was unclear, Philadelphia Officer Tanya Little said. But police sources said officers had identified several of the teenagers involved.

    The victim, Edward Schaefer, a decorated Vietnam War veteran, was jumped by a group of six teens about 6 p.m. Tuesday near his Olney home, apparently “just for sport,” police said.

    1. Damn, guess Im not going into Philly this weekend… But, its not like this is an isolated instance. Ive seen first-hand plenty of people get beat-downs in Filthadelphia.

    2. Which reminds me, my uncle lives there on the water front. Carries a .45 semi-auto at all times, and has had to pull it out several times when people try to mug him. Bad place. Stay away…

    3. This is all due to the race-baiting of Democrats and their feeders: Al Sharpton, who is responsible for riots in New York where Jews were killed by blacks, and now has a msnbc program where he can spout his racism against white people, Obama’s favourite reverend Jeremiah, and the rest of the leftard useful idiots. disgisting! I hope and pray he recovers soon and they catch those abeid!!
