Army Veteran Badly Beaten: “You’re in the Danger Zone, White Boy”
Charlotte, North Carolina: David Palmer is a seven year Army Veteran who was deployed to Afghanistan. He was out of the Army less than a year and had taken a job as a bartender in Charlotte to make money for his upcoming schooling. After eating dinner with his sister, he was ambushed and beaten badly during the protests over the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.
“You’re in the danger zone, white boy”
According to Popular Military,
Palmer was walking down 4th st -near the Epicentre parking deck- after leaving dinner at the Blackfinn with his sister, at around 8:45 p.m when the attack occurred. His sister parted ways with him after dinner but reports the men ambushed Palmer from a concealed position behind a construction site.
As the began to beat him they reportedly shouted, “You’re in the danger zone white boy.”
The rioters also stole his cell phone in addition to beating his face. Palmer will be undergoing surgery on Monday, and a metal plate will have to be inserted in his head, according to WBTV.
“He has been to 3 different doctors and will be undergoing surgery on Monday. He has a fractured eye socket and multiple broken bones in his face. The specialists told us to imagine dropping a dinner plate from above your head…’that’s what the inside of your face looks like right now…”
“My little brother is my rock and seeing him go through such an awful situation is heart breaking. I knew I couldn’t protect him while he was in Afghanistan, but never did I worry about our own streets.” Ashley Warlick, David’s sister
Ashley started a GoFundMe page to help with her brother’s major medical bills.
The Charlotte Observer misidentified David as the white man who was seen being chased and stripped naked in the parking garage. The following video is thought to be where David Palmer was actually beaten, as the white man left the incident holding his face.
The video is loud from the profanity laced screaming, and fortunately only 54 seconds long.
