How can anyone excuse such an act? This elderly man was attacked with rocks and a machete. Not only was he attacked but several people were attacked. These weren´t protesters the pro Zelaya were attacking ..they are private residents and ´campesinos´ who were headed to meet with Elvin Santos. Anyone who does something like this has no right to complain about how they are treated as a result. The people responsible for this deserve long prison sentences and to be subjected to long lectures on respecting your elders. Shame on you...this man is clearly not wealthy and he is clearly ELDERLY. How can anyone excuse something like this?
