Video: Ret. Marine Viciously Beaten Defending Teen from Bullies FOX News
No good deed goes unpunished, so the saying goes, and retired US Marine Capt. Wen Jones could attest to the adage. Capt. Jones was viciously attacked when he stepped in to defend a 14-year-old he saw being bulled by three males. Now, three months after the incident, authorities say the attackers have been arrested. But on Monday's Fox & Friends, Jones told the crew that he would do it all over again for one reason. "A lot of the messages [I've received] talk about how people have used this to have a teaching moment [...] and I'd love for that to be the message that comes out of this. You can stand up to bullies; it's ok to do the right thing, and we've got to be partnered together to do that." Now, the question is this. Is the lesson provided to us all by Mr. Jones one we will take to heart, or simply acknowledge and then move on?
