cenobyte40k: Please someone explain to me why this guy isn't being arrested and tried for assault?


Tell you the truth I got a black eye after a little brawl erupted outside Shampoo -- I didn't fully consider who I was with when I stepped forward to defend somebody. I went through the legal channel, had pictures of my black eye, and got a letter a few weeks later from the PPD telling me it wasn't a crime.

/the kid being the son of a former governor may have had something to do with it
 
2012-07-06 12:28:35 AM  
This guy should've pressed charges. How many times can people get away with battery?

It reminds me of that (I think) Rand Paul supporter who demanded an apology from a protestor because he sprained his knee as a result of STOMPING ON HER HEAD.
 
2012-07-06 12:28:47 AM  

skullkrusher: he was pretty clearly not even put off by it


Which makes him even less of a pussy to me. Oh well,

they're all a bunch of pussies. you're all a bunch of pussies.

pussies.

Gyrfalcon: You know Richard Brysack was called "Dick Ballsack" throughout his entire childhood.


I'm convinced his friends in (catholic) high school and college -- and he's a friggin' AE∏ -- didn't call him 'turkey' because (as claimed) he was ('defensively') 'proud' ('of his vehement endorsement of religion') but because they couldn't call him 'dick' in front of the nuns.

/ew, santorum

hehe he actually asked for an apology from her for causing the incident by coming to the event to cause trouble... which is probably worse than the sprained kneed demand

vartian: basemetal: How did the protester not shove his fist down gramps' throat?

Because he isn't a piece of shiat reactionary tea partier.


Self-defense isn't a reactionary response.


This is the reason liberals get walked on. They let it happen.
 
2012-07-06 12:38:12 AM  

red5ish: confronted by Richard Brysac, 77, of Parma.

Known to his friends as "Dick".


And his best friends as Dick 'Sac.

I_Am_Weasel: I was momentarily confused by the headline. I was wondering who'd be walking about carrying a sock. You might think it normal at a Pawlenty event, but I just wondered. Sure, he could have taken it off, but that would seem rather unlikely considering the man was walking by. Then again, I'm probably slow at removing my shoe than sock. Of course, being an old guy perhaps he was wearing sandals which are certainly more convenient to remove quickly when attempting to get at your sock. Still, that would be a bit silly.


That's an interesting point, the idea that this guy knew there would be a protest and premeditatively decided to assault someone. And he probably thought 'Well, if I just belt the guy, I'll get arrested. But if I use particular items that won't harm him, but piss him off enough to attack me, not only will my friends jump him, but the press will say that this liberal protestor attacked a 77-year old man.'

Of course, if people like that put as much thought into how to make the country better as they do into pissing off people who disagree with them, we probably wouldn't have these protests in the first place.

skullkrusher: erveek: spongeboob: skullkrusher: stay classy, old man. Stay pussy, young man.

Bite me, in no way was the young guy a pussy. He was well disciplined, and showed more maturity than most people would have. If he had hit this old f&ck there would be video of him hitting a poor old retiree posted in every thread where Republicans assualt Democrats from here on sites like fark.

The kid showed restraint when a lesser protester would have bitten one of the old man's fingers off. Since provoking him to violence didn't work, idiots have to content themselves with calling him a pussy.

yeah, it's part of our coordinated scheme. That old guy is my great-great-great grandfather. Better luck next time provoking them to violence, great-great-great grandpa


Since it's evidently Be Obtuse On Fark Day, I'm going to go ahead and assume you weren't being sarcastic when you said that the old man should stay classy.

I'm sorry that the protester didn't do what you would have preferred and assaulted an old man in retaliation. In your universe that makes the protester a pussy. Maybe he should show some class.
 
2012-07-06 12:51:13 AM  
Good for him for not getting into a fight. Hate to be an internet tough guy, but if a 77 year old did that to me, I'd snap his brittle body in two. Unfortunately, I get from the article that the guy is enough of a pacifist that he won't look to press assault charges on the prick.

Poison Appleseeds: This reminds me of my 67 year old father. He's an uneducated man who worked a union job for 35 years. He, and my mother, currently live on social security and depend on Medicare. He refuses to get information from a any source other than Fox News, including online, and goes so far as to MUTE Fox News when any Democrat is speaking. When it comes to Obama he goes even further, whenever Fox plays a clip or soundbite of Obama he changes the channel, mutes the TV, and then periodically switches back to check if Obama is still on or not.

I can't get over how these flag-waiving old, white, conservatives are so completely clueless and un-self-aware. Of course, I know the true reason why he and all my uncles really hate Obama so much. I see the emails.


My SO's grandfather and grandmother are the same way. Sigh.

Thankfully my grandparents (when they were still around) were all acutely aware of the fights that happened so they could get things like a 40 hour workweek and basic protections.

That said, this kid (using the term loosely here) has way more restraint than I would have, and I've never purposefully hit another person in anger in my entire life.

More power to him.

you guys have a hard time with reality so now you're venturing into alternate realities? Please. Old dude committed battery against him. Young guy is totally within his rights to resist at the very least. Beating the old man senseless? Probably a disproportionate response.

violent teabaggers ought to be jailed. they are political terrorists.
 
2012-07-06 12:59:31 AM  
Ok the old man poured water in the protestors mouth.

What if it was poisoned? He is clearly deranged and needs some action taken against him, at least to deter some of the other whack jobs out there.

Its not open season on protestors. The old man's actions make me sick.

I remember Ann Coulter was talking about how the Air Force needed to send a plane to the Capitol during the protests last year in WI to strafe the crowd. These people aren't even trying to hide the fact that they are fascists, and that they are capable of committing acts of violence to get their way. They revel in the fact that the media won't ever call them out because the GOP/FOX has done such a great job as painting any questioning of the right as "liberal media hitjobs."

I wish we could just have a full-throttle throwdon between insolent inner-city liberals and all the conseravtives in the flyover states. The libs would get their welfare-sucking asses kicked and we could move forward! How many crops do you grow in the cities, ya lib weenies? None. Without a Walmart distribution center, you'd be screwed. Bootstrap this, you inner city succubi! You got no game.

It seems a little weird that the guy pretty much allowed the hanky to go into his mouth. WTF? Everyone knows what old people do with hankies. But I don't care if it's a brand new hanky fresh out of sterilized shrink wrap...no one shoves anything into my mouth, no matter how 'Gran Torino' he looks. My mouth would clamp shut and I'd be slapping and pushing the living fark out of the guy's arms.

I'm normally very tolerant of old people. But I would've loved to see him (at least) cuffed and fined for that crap. I think chanters are obnoxious and annoying, too..but there's a time and a place for a booger-encrusted gag. This was not that time.
