A 13 year old boy in Montana was brutally slammed to the ground, fracturing his skull and causing him to bleed from the ears for hours on end. The reason for this vicious assault? A 39 year old man named Curt Brockway took issue with the boy not removing his hat for the national anthem.

The boy, Wally, has a very long road to recovery. His mother, Megan, will be with him the entire time and is therefore unable to work. Every dime from this fundraiser will go to the family to help them seek justice and pay their bills while their brave boy heals.
Despite prosecutors' suggestion that Brockway be held on $100,000 bail, the judge released him on his own recognizance. In 2010, Brockway threatened to murder an entire family with a gun, was sentenced to 10 years in prison... that sentence was suspended. Curt Brockway seems to have a knack for dodging punishment. We aim to provide the family financial support for legal aid to make sure that is not the case.
Democratic dissent is the right of every American, and whether intentional or not, this young man should be applauded and supported for his bravery in the face of forced patriotism. Nobody gets to mete out punishment in order to enforce patriotism, and this man should be locked away for his crimes. Help us help this family, and help us ensure this reality.
