To Mr. Tenpenny, I would like to apologize on behalf of those in the Ozarks. How embarrassing and what a misrepresentation of the people who live here. Please know that we are thankful for your service in the Marines, proud of your choice to speak up against injustice and violence, and praying for justice in not only your case but in the entire nation and for all humanity.
HARDY, Ark. – What was supposed to be a weekend with friends on the river became a brutal assault involving racial epithets, several assailants and severe burns on the victim, according to a viral Facebook post.
