This is truly an example of bad things happening to good people. Rusty is a very caring, dedicated person who must have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thankfully, Rusty has the youthful strength and positive attitude to recover from the hideous attack.
The truly sad back story for our community & Russ Talmo's unfortunate assault. Thank you Jessica Mayrer for this piece. I think moving forward with the healing process starts with raising community awareness of senseless violence around Missoula and helping raise support for crime victims like Russ. Please pitch in if you can:
My God! I hope this guy is going to be ok and the cowardly jerk that did this crime gets caught. We just don’t need this sort of trash running around Missoula.
Thanks goes out to Blake Nicolazzo for putting out the word on the fund set up to help Russ in his recovery. I’m going to give.
did anyone get any description of the attacker?
Thank you Jessica and the Indy for bringing this story to the Missoula community
God, I hope find the bastard who did this and put him away for a long time.
Whether or not "knockout" was a phenomenon before all the media attention, it is one now and susceptible sociopaths will take it up. Tragic events follow - how to avert them? Better to shun the whole idea or to create a counter-narrative?
The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago: a random, unprovoked assault - downtown. I won't go anywhere alone anymore after dark.
There is a fund set up to help Russ in his recovery:
Could it be the area construction and the Urban Renewal Tax District did the business in? It was nice to have movies shown in that part of town.
The club has moved to 1500 W Broadway
750 ml is perfect for sharing!
Wow, gotta love downtown. Maybe if those dolt's weren't so worried about signage, transients, and drunk Indians they could find the time to help another business out.
Sad day for that sorry neck of the woods.
Well we'll just have to make that 3,000 people who voted him out come the next go-round.
cushy jobs? missoula? BAhahahaha
Just saw that lol
He would have been much better off saying Billings.... Or pretty much any city in the South... Missoula is a blue dot in a red State, and he unfortunately threw a bad dart. Oh well... At least he knows.... Now...
Just for the record, it's a 750 ml bottle. Which makes it just that much more awesome. Just sayin'!
Jamie Olson you are a disgusting filthy waste of human skin. I hope you break your leg out in the wilderness somewhere in one of your own leg traps and rot there. THEN you might have some empathy for the poor creatures you tortured. Pig.
Congratulations from Artisan Craft Distilling Institute!!
