Thugs beat 17 year-old Brian Ogle unconscious, crack his skull after he posted a pro-police message on Facebook.
According to Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson, Brian Ogle was assaulted in an Ace Hardware parking lot following Sylacauga High School’s homecoming game on Friday.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered Ogle beaten and bleeding from the head.
He was airlifted to the University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital where tests revealed three skull fractures and trauma to his shoulder.
Ogle remains in critical condition.
Ogle’s mother, Brandi Allen, told police she believes the assault occurred after he posted a pro-police message to Facebook.
“Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here,” Allen told WBRC from the UAB Hospital on Sunday. “Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being.”
