Vet who asks arguing men to move away from small children is savagely beaten (Video)

Seth Shope’s wife, Rachel, admits she was apprehensive each of the times her husband shipped out to Iraq or Afghanistan. But she insists she was never more terrified or fearful for his life than she was this past Saturday when the veteran of five Army tours asked two men who were loudly arguing on a street corner in Springfield, Ohio, to take their profanity-laced disagreement out of earshot of a group of young children.

Dayton station WHIO reports that Shope is in stable condition after the beating he received from the two disputants, which was so severe that it left him with a brain bleed and fractures to his cheekbone, nose, and skull. Shope says his attackers used brass knuckles in their assault on him.

Springfield Police Sgt. Doug Pergram said they have no suspects nor witnesses and that the incident remains under investigation. The family is working with investigators to find Shope’s attackers.

In the meantime, the story supplies further proof of the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished.
