This blog and this blogger is sorry to hear Jon Olson, who sits on the park board, was apparently the victim in the box cutter attack in the parking lot of T Shoppe Bar, which I wrote about in two previous blog posts, click here and also here.
Olson is a public official and therefore an attack of this nature is newsworthy enough to print the name of the victim. The information came from a reliable source, who obtained it secondhand from another reliable source and passed it on within hours. It has been confirmed that Olson was the victim of an attack that disfigured his face, and then that information was matched up with what is known about the box cutter attack, including the initials of the victim, JCO, to determine the victim of the box cuter attack was Olson; albeit the word "reportedly" covers any lingering uncertainty.
We look upon our public officials to be leaders and so it makes sense that Jon Olson, though holding an office concerned with the management of park resources, should take it upon himself to come to the rescue of a woman who was being accosted by a drunk, paying an unexpectedly heavy price. This blogger wishes Jon Olson as speedy and full a recovery as possible.
