Chris Isner: “I Want This Fucker”

Did your buddy burn the burgers? Lose your wallet at the parade? Someone puke on the rug? Whatever went wrong at your 4th of July celebration probably doesn’t compare to what happened to local teen Roisin Isner, who drums for San Francisco band Tinkture. A fireworks mishap at Dolores Park in San Francisco left her with a mangled right hand, possibly ending her music career — and it wasn’t her fault. Now her father’s trying to track down the culprit. Read Chris Isner’s message, which first went out early in the morning of Thursday the 5th, after the jump.Hello,

I am Roisin’s father. July 4th, Roisin and friends were in Dolores Park watching fireworks. Some stupid piece of shit threw an M60 at them. It landed on Roisin’s right hand and blew it apart. She will undego surgery later this morning but it doesn’t look good. Most likely she will lose her index finger; second and third fingers will also be permanently impaired and disfigured. Needless to say, her musical career is over.

I want this fucker. Media attention will help flush him out. People know who did it and I’m offering $20,000 for a name. Please do whatever is necessary to get the story out. Do so and I will reward you as well.

Thank you,
Chris Isner
