Here’s a terrific example of how people can look out for one another – even when they’re strangers.
Hats off to employees at the Hawthorn Inn by the airport, who grew concerned about a woman who was checking in last night. Her head was bleeding, her eye was swollen and she wasn’t wearing any shoes, even though it was only 15 degrees outside.
They could have just talked about it amongst themselves. Instead, they called police — who ended up arresting the woman’s husband on a felony assault charge. (As the Missoulian recounts, he told police that she punched herself.)
