TheBlaze.com reports on a very bizarre and sad story.
Everett Stadig, a 69-year-old volunteer who has been collecting signatures for Colorado’s Personhood amendment, was reportedly violently thrown off of his bicycle and assaulted this week. The pro-life advocate suffered a broken hip and has gone through surgery to replace a portion of it after a man became irate and attacked him outside of a grocery store in Denver.
Problems started for Stadig when, as LifeSiteNews reports, he asked the man in question if he would be willing to sign the Personhood petition (activists need 86,000 to get the measure on November ballots). The individual refused to sign and apparently started yelling, swearing and proclaiming, “I’m pro-choice.”
Stadig recalled telling the man. “Then he grabbed my petition pad, and with the same movement threw me to ground, and I was hurt so bad I couldn’t get up.”
The attacker left the scene after the incident but a witness was able to write down his license plate number

What a coward. No only did he cause this person much pain and permanent damage, but he walked away. If they catch up to him, he will have a hard time claiming accident since he did not stay to help. I believe this is someone who most likely does this often, picking on people much older/weaker than him. Must be a fan of Dan Savage.
