Disgusting. Gang Members Brutally Beat Marine & Knock Out His Wife & Then File Complaint Against Them
Federico Freire and wife, Kalyn, were looking forward to their first date when he returned from Afghanistan.
But the date turned into a nightmare after 300 teens waited for them outside a movie theater and beat Kalyn unconscious.

It was their first date out since his return home from the Iraq War.
FOX News reported:
He was an Iraq war veteran home on leave in time for Christmas. She was looking forward to a night out with her husband after so much time apart.
But a group of teenagers had other plans for Federico and Kalyn Freire, who were assaulted outside a Florida movie theater after asking the teens to be quiet during a movie on Christmas Day.
Federico Freire, a 28-year-old Marine, and Kalyn Freire were attacked after the couple attended a showing of “Little Fockers” on Saturday in Bradenton, Fla.
“The saddest part about it was that this was our first date night together in a long time,” Freire’s wife, Kalyn, said in an interview Wednesday with FoxNews.com. “We were just looking to spend some time together.”
When they were asked to be quiet, some of teens began cussing. Later outside the theater, Freire looked over at his wife and saw a young male with his shirt off punch her in the face, knocking her out.

Now, one of the young girls involved in the beatdown has filed a complaint against the US Marine.
A 14-year-old girl who was told to be quiet by a Marine and his wife on Christmas night at a local theater during a movie has filed a battery complaint with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
The Marine, Federico Freire. 27, denied the girl’s charge, and the sheriff’s office will not pursue the complaint, saying there were inconsistencies in the girl’s statement and that the case is closed.
“We investigated the complaint, and there isn’t even enough there to send to the State Attorney’s Office,” said sheriff’s office spokesman Dave Bristow.
Brittnee Collins, of Bradenton, filed a complaint Tuesday stating she was struck in the lip by an unknown man outside the Carmike Royal Palm 20 theater after words were exchanged with Freire’s wife, according to the sheriff’s office report.
Collins depicted a slightly different version of events after Freire, who is on a two-week leave from Afghanistan, and his wife, Kayln, went public with their story.
Collins said in an interview with the Bradenton Herald on Wednesday that Freire and his wife were viewing the movie while she and her younger family members were getting up and down to get snacks.
Collins, who was sitting in front of Freire, said Freire told the youths to shut up, and then told one of the juveniles he has was going to slit her throat.
“That’s when, I’m like, you don’t need to talk to her like that. She’s young,” Collins said.
Kayln Freire went to get the manager and the row of juveniles was subsequently kicked out of the theater. The teens contacted parents outside for a ride.
Collins then followed Kayln Freire and said, “‘Did you say something to me because I didn’t say anything to you.’ She gets in my face. She’s telling me that if I touch her she’s going to whoop my (butt).”
At that point Freire comes to get his wife and leaves.
Of course, this was all a lie. The gang waited for the Marine and his wife after the movie.
But, now they’re playing like they were the victims.
