Wyoming Bigots Batter American African ex-Marine Who Objected to Racial Language

www.rawstory.com_2016-05-17_14-45-19.jpgVictim of weekend attack receives outpouring of support – Feature Story – The Sheridan Press – Denny, 25, is half African-American and half Chippewa and Cree. A native of Billings, Montana, Denny served five years in the Marines and is now studying at Sheridan College to eventually pursue a bachelor’s in exercise science. Speculation on social media is rampant about what happened and how, but Denny declined to discuss details of the night, citing the ongoing investigation. What he would say is that he’d visited with his mother earlier Saturday for a quick, pre-Mother’s Day stop on her way through town. She works for the Veterans Affairs outreach clinic in Havre, Montana, and was traveling to a VA clinic in Oklahoma for work. Then later that night, eager to practice his photography skills — a growing hobby — Denny set out with his camera to shoot photos. He wanted pictures of Sheridan, since he and his girlfriend Annie Shaver plan to return to Billings soon for Denny to pursue a bachelor’s. But Denny doesn’t need to discuss the incident to show what it’s done to him. All of his injuries are to his head, except for a few scratches on his body where he hit the ground. Six staples and more than 20 stitches hold together the skin on his scalp and face. The whites of Denny’s eyes are now bright red, as blood has pooled. The left orbital, a face bone just below the eye socket, is fractured and will require surgery.
