    Here's what's sketchy lou lou annie ... this kind of vicious assault has become far to common and by past comments appears accepted and actually condoned , as if this man and others who are vulnerable and have been attacked deserve a few good kicks to the head and a crack on the skull with a wrench simply for minding their own business and being in the right place at the wrong time. Case in point the young man who was brutally attacked recently in Cape Breton. He and his dog were sleeping under a home made shelter in woods behind a grocery store and Harley Lawrence who was set on fire in Berwick , NS last fall. By the way Lawrence died of his injuries , he was sleeping in a bus shelter. SKETCHY, you're goddamn right it's sketchy ... lou lou .This has gone far and beyond a late night rumble in the park over turf. These attacks and future ones should be treated as attempted manslaughter.

      I totally agree that whoever did this needs to be found and charged, no question at all there. Someone is obviously very twisted and needs to be behind bars. What I find sketchy is if there were that many people involved why has not someone come forward? Out of that many people someone must have a conscience.... This guys life is changed forever and someone needs to be held accountable. * As for the other posters ' troll' comment, grow up.

    What is missing from the article is the victim is still facing a major operation in Halifax later this week and has less then 5% chance of ever seeing out of his eye again.
