They nearly beat the man to death.
In the Dodger Stadium parking lot, after a game against the San Francisco Giants, Marvin Norwood, 33, and Louie Sanchez, 31, knocked a man wearing a jersey of the opposing team to the ground. A witness heard his skull thud on the asphalt.
Bryan Stow lay on the ground helpless.
But his attackers kept up the assault. One repeatedly kicked the off-duty paramedic him in the head. He was lucky to survive. After arriving at the hospital, he was put into a medically induced coma. He’d stay in professional care facilities for two years. He could’ve stayed longer, but his insurance money ran out.
Now he lives at his parents’ house.
For the rest of his life, he will suffer brain damage and require caregivers. He was beaten so severely that, forever more, he’ll need to wear an adult diaper. “He has to be reminded why a plastic shunt juts from the base of his skull,” the Los Angeles Times reports. Yet the men who nearly beat him to death, when sentenced Thursday, got just four and eight years in prison. This despite the fact that both “had previous felony convictions, including one case each of domestic violence.”
