Lamar Advertising donates billboard space to help catch perps in near fatal assault.
The two Latino suspects in the brutal, near fatal beating of a white father at Dodger stadium are still at large. While the media will not openly admit it, the motivation was probably mostly racial hatred. Lamar Advertising generously volunteered to place police sketches of the perps on 200 unused billboards.
From Los Angeles Daily News…
The first of hundreds of billboards showing police sketches of two men who assaulted a San Francisco Giants fan after the opening- day game at Dodger Stadium were installed today.
Lamar Advertising donated the billboard space in hopes of generating tips leading to the men who attacked Bay Area resident Bryan Stow. Police said Stow, who was wearing Giants attire, was attacked without provocation by two men wearing Dodgers gear in a stadium parking lot.
Lamar spokeswoman Luly Armienta told ABC7 that with the Giants scheduled to play again at Dodger Stadium next week, the company “felt it necessary to remind the public that these assailants are still out there, and if we have the boards available, why not?”
She told the station the company would install 200 billboards today, and 100 more by the end of the month.
Stow remains hospitalized at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. His family reported on its website, support4stow.blogspot.com, that Stow has shown signs of improvement in recent days — enough so that they are considering having him transferred to a hospital closer to home, possibly UC San Francisco Medical Center.
