Son Of Braves Legend Dale Murphy Took Rubber Bullet To The Eye While Protesting
© Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports
Atlanta Braves legend Dale Murphy says his son nearly lost his eye while peacefully protesting over the weekend, claiming an officer fired a rubber bullet at his kid's face...
quote:

The two-time National League MVP explained the terrifying situation Sunday ... saying his son was protesting George Floyd's tragic death in Denver, Colo. when cops opened fire with less-than-lethal weapons.

Murphy says his son needed to be rushed to the hospital ... but, fortunately, the former MLB star says he appears to have avoided serious injury.

"Luckily, his eye was saved due to a kind stranger that was handing out goggles to protestors shortly before the shooting and another kind stranger that drove him to the ER," Murphy says.

Conservative voters: I'm going down to protests businesses doing curbside service and having to wear a mask and also stand up against tyranny. *cop murders a man and incites a nation of frustrated people to respond and let the government know that police have too much power and then we don't have to take it or big government* Conservative voter: They should be at home not taking bullets to the eye. Idiots

To be fair Dale has about 20 kids so the odds of one of his kids taking one for the team is greater than most. It’s math...and science.
