Angry Some people just need the ever lovin shit knocked out of them

Daytona veteran beaten up for trying to save turtle's life,...

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Three young men were arrested Tuesday after police said they beat up a Navy veteran who asked them to stop torturing a turtle, according to Daytona Beach police.

A woman was walking her toddler around a pond at Wedgewood Apartments and told police she saw three men torturing a turtle. She went home and told her husband, Gary Blough, they were “smashing up a turtle.”

Blough went outside and said he saw a group of three men repeatedly abusing the animal, according to the police report.

"The one had it over his head and he was smashing it down on the sidewalk," Blough said. "I asked them to please leave it alone, just let it go to the lake."

One of the men, later identified at Johnnie Beveritt, 18, picked up the turtle and threw it down on the sidewalk; the two other men, Ryan Ponder, 23 and a 16-year-old boy, kicked the turtle toward the apartment building away from the pond, the witness told police.

Blough told police that the turtle was trying to crawl away but was seriously injured and unable to walk.

He told his wife to call the police after the suspects did not stop attacking the animal, according to the report. After that, two of the suspects struck Blough with their hands, fists and feet.

"They started hitting the back of my head and started punching me. I was able to fend off a little bit but I mean three of them, got the better of me," he said.

Blough told them he did not want to fight, one of the attackers said “I don’t give a f—and I don’t care if I go to jail,” according to the arrest report.

Ryan Ponder, 23, and Johnnie Beveritt, 18 are charged with beating a Navy veteran who tried to stop them from killing a turtle in Daytona Beach.

The suspects continued to beat Blough until neighbors came out and the suspects ran away.

A Daytona Beach police officer captured all three suspects and the victim’s wife positively identified them as the attackers, according to the report.

Blough told police he is a disabled veteran who was seriously injured in the Persian Gulf War. First responders said the victim suffered injuries during the attack including broken skull and facial bones, internal bleeding and a concussion. Police did not know how the injuries would affect him long term.

Blough's wife set up a GoFundMe account to raise money for his extensive medical expenses. She said Blough will need surgery on his eye after the beating.

Blough said he hopes the men are punished for what they did and would intervene again, without a doubt.

"Yeah, I'd do it again and take the beating again if it meant saving that turtle," he said.

Police found the turtle, dead, floating in the pond in a puddle of blood.

“The animal likely suffered greatly during the time it was being battered by the three defendants,” the officer wrote in the arrest report.

All three men are charged with aggravated battery and animal cruelty. News 6 is not identifying the 16-year-old.

The vet should have shot them. Going into a situation where you are outnumbered 3 to 1 and you have disability you better be armed.

Funny how the Rev. Al Sharpton never has anything to say about things like this.

Torturing small animals is a sign of sociopathy. I'm going to make the assumption that they probably already have extensive rap sheets. So they'll get some jail time where they can further hone their gang-banging skills. These idiots probably have either short life spans ahead of them, or very long prison terms. They will probably murder someone before they are stopped.

some years ago, on the uphill side of my house, behind the attached work/storage sheds, is the HVAC unit, and so next to it, was this large turtle digging in the ground....thing was almost a foot long with a head/feet the size of two of my fingers.....I scooped it up with a shovel and carried it down to the swamp at bottom of the hill.....tossed it into the water....

now HOW in the hell, much less WHY it was up in this most improbable spot is a total mystery....as if some kids put it there....must be 1/8 mile from the swamp, up a decent incline....

Nail on the head, sadly.

Damn softy. Why go easy on them?

Ever see the baseball bat Lucille from the Walking Dead?

Tie them to a post when the vet gets out of the hospital and give him an hour with them. If they die, so be it.

Can you tell I have ZERO sympathy?

I'd like to beat them unconscious just for the turtle incident. Then you throw in the veteran and I want to see them bleed out from barbed wire with a gasoline rinse.

Throw the scum in with hard core convicts and let the convicts know what they did.

Charlie Daniels had a pretty good idea:

Don't think it hasn't been done. There are places in Louisiana where the government has no idea what goes on, and frankly doesn't care.
