[Shaun Adam] Vilan, who was on parole after spending six years in state prison for two assaults, had a lengthy history of ganging up on people and attacking them, according to court records. His convictions included two unprovoked assaults in 1996 and 1998, which involve Vilan smashing two people in the face with beer bottles.
…And on and on and on (more incidents listed in the article).
Shaun, I hope you and Jesus had it all worked out.
