Alabama Teen Beaten Into Critical Condition After Posting ‘Blue Lives Matter’
A 17-year-old Alabama high school student is in critical condition after being assaulted this weekend.
According to Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson, Brian Ogle was assaulted in an Ace Hardware parking lot following Sylacauga High School’s homecoming game on Friday.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered Ogle beaten and bleeding from the head.
He was airlifted to the University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital where tests revealed three skull fractures and trauma to his shoulder.
“Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here,” Brandi Allen, his mother, told a local Fox affiliate on Sunday. “Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being.
“My son took [evidence of threats] to the principal at Sylacauga High School and I commend him for that. He showed her the threats that were being made to him, but she told him there was nothing she could do. I’m appalled.”
Chief Johnson told the station that witnesses to the assault described a group of black teenagers who are now persons of interest in an investigation.
