Earlier this week, according to SF Chron, 18-year-old Christopher Borgzinner, an actor who plays a "thug" in the up coming film La Mission , was brutally beaten while riding the 9-San Bruno to acting class. It seems Borgzinner was mugged and attacked because he was wearing the wrong kind of shoes.
SF Chron reports:
A group of men, ignoring his denial of any gang affiliation, stole his wallet and other items and put him in the hospital with a beating. (...) Police say Borgzinner suffered orbital bone fractures under both eyes and other injuries when four men beat him at about 5:45 p.m. Monday on the northbound bus near 11th and Howard streets.
Attacked by the notoriously dimwitted Norteño gang, they asked Borgzinner if he was a gang member. Denying the attack, the gang waste then jumped him. Something about a "green light," which is inane gang slang for OKing an attack. Deep.
Worst of all, there were a "significant number" of cameras on the bus, but they might not have been working. Muni spokesperson Judson True, the Chron goes on to say, will announce today whether or not the cameras did, in fact, tape the brutal beating.
This, as most of you know, happened just days before this footage of two women beating the crap out of each other exploded on the internet.
First Oz, not Borgzinner. Please leave our talented thespians alone, evildoers!
