Obviously, we hope no one ever assaults anyone. Give peace a chance! But goons hoping to get away with such a crime should know better than to stand in front of a bus camera en route to their chosen butt-beating locale. That's what the man in the photo attached here is accused of doing on May 31, shortly before putting a guy he encountered in the parking lot of a Broomfield-area McDonalds into the hospital. Of course, this act may not have been premeditated, in which case his pose isn't quite as stupid as it seems. Still, he would have been a lot better off limiting the damage to the impact a Big Mac does to the average intestine.
