A bartender told police that Hillstrom and his friends had been arguing with two men. Shortly after 1 a.m., Gantt approached Hillstrom and said he wanted to fight. Gantt threw a punch, sending Hillstrom “to the ground in a daze,” the complaint read. The second man punched Hillstrom when he tried to stand.
Hillstrom hit his head on the concrete floor and was knocked unconscious. The two men ran from the bar.
This one of many cases out there where an “unarmed” individual produced grave bodily harm and eventually death. I can almost bet you that more than one Mike Brown protester out there went home at night, chilled in front of the TV while watching a Mixed Martial Arts fight and his/her brain never made the connection between both.
Then again, they probably have never been righteously punched to the point of stars, little birds circling and blackout.
