A decorated U.S. Marine veteran, whose actions inspired an iconic war memorial, was assaulted from behind shortly after teenagers asked him about the Black Lives Matter movement.
Christopher Marquez was trying to eat a meal at McDonald’s last Friday in Washington, D.C., when a group of teenagers approached him. They asked, “Do you believe black lives matter?” before ambushing him. The Bronze Star recipient was knocked unconscious and robbed of $400, a VA medical card, three credit cards and other belongings.
