WI - Mob Severely Beats Motorist Who Honked Horn, Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE -- At least 15 young men and boys dragged a 50-year-old man out of his car after he honked at them to move out of the street and then kicked and punched him, Milwaukee police said.
Samuel McClain was in critical condition Tuesday night at Froedtert Hospital with severe head injuries, but he was awake and able to talk.
"He might not be able to see or walk because of these people, these kids," McClain's daughter, Shanika Johnson, said.
Police said McClain was driving alone at about 10:30 p.m. Monday when he honked at a group of young people in the middle of the road on the city's north side.
"Instead of moving they surrounded the vehicle," Milwaukee police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said. The group of people, thought to be between 16 and 23 years old, then beat and kicked him, she said.
"They left him for dead and when we showed up he was laying in the street," Schwartz said.
Officers haven't made any arrests and were canvassing the neighborhood Tuesday, she said.

That story made reference to the most infamous beating by a mob in the city: Charlie Young. Remember him? He was the 36-year old man beaten by a bunch of people back in 2002 with rakes, folding chairs, shovels, etc.
I found a story on him, too. Terrible, just terrible
Let's send well wishes for Samuel McClain so that he can survive.Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.
