Hooligan injured a legally blind 92-year-old World War II veteran trying to still his American flag.
Howard Banks of Kaufman, Texas, stated that heard some sounds outside his house and went see what was happening.
“I walked out, hanging onto the railing and stepped down. That must’ve startled them,” Banks stated. “They could see me. I couldn’t see them. I turned and looked in the other direction, and about then – ‘wham!’ They knocked me down.”
The hooligan then ran away without stealing his flag, as some witnesses came to help Banks who had a twisted ankle.
The thug accomplished to toss a “God Bless All Police” sign thru his yard.
“It’s the one thing I can cling to. Yet at my capacity, there’s not much I can do. But I can honor our flag,” the veteran stated.
Banks said that this isn’t the first time someone tried to damage his flags before someone had ripped his American flag and U.S. Marine flag.
Kaufman police issued a statement saying that they are investigating the incident.
“We are doing everything in our power to find the suspects that committed this cowardly assault and bring them to justice,” the department stated.
“This gentleman is a hero to our officers and the city’s residents should be extremely proud to have him as part of our community,” it said.
