    "A Fox News contributor was punched in the face during a pro-union protest Tuesday in Michigan, one of a series of confrontations between union demonstrators and opponents on the day the state Legislature approved so-called "right to work" legislation that unions oppose."

    Sorry, but none of these FOX anti-american workers making a liveable wage ever proves to the the truth. More lies from the republican right wing media.

    Yep! You are correct.
    That is my bad.
    I checked this topic the other day and saw nothing. Did a follow up search and found nothing online about the case.

    So today when I was quoted, no I didn't bother to scroll up. I assumed and didn't think anything new was there.
    So like I said, my bad.

    And what he said was wrong anyways.


    Again, my bad.
    And the last time I am going to make that mistake.

    No. That isn't the case.
    We can see in the unedited video of the incident that it is exactly a union thug.

    We knew before Crowder stepped forward to press charges that there was an edited version and an unedited version.
    The unedited showed the same thing. Union thugs.
    Union thugs tearing down the tent of that they did not like. Thugs period. Not some meme. That is the reality.
    We see from other footage of that day the same thug who had unprovokedly swung on Crowder, trying to antagonize Crowder.

    So there was no reason for the prosecutor to be looking at the edit footage when we had the unedited footage already.

    Something smells fishy.

    As Michigan is a very liberal State, especially the city of Lansing, and beholden to the Union, I wonder if this wasn't purely a political decision to not file, as the unedited video shows it was an unprovoked attack.
    And although there in no meme getting shut down, I would agree that the political climate is the reality of it.

    Welcome.

    You were more correct than you think. My post was to draw attention to the fact to dismiss a charge a DA must first file a charge. Electing NOT to charge isn't the same as dismissing a charge. So, asking for a link to an actual dismissal of a charge was correct. The link provided by myself showed no charge was filed to be dismissed.

    Yeah I realized that. But it isn't how I play this game.
    I made a mistake and admitted to it.
    That is how I roll.

    Somebody doesn't know Michigan very well

    Michigan is a very liberal State
    Republican Governor and Republican controlled state legislature since 2010 that has passed multiple bills aimed directly at workers and the poor.

    Study: Michigan among states raising poor's taxes | MLive.com
    Michigan is among just a handful of states raising taxes on low-income working families while cutting taxes for other groups, . . . Michigan, New Jersey and Wisconsin all have scaled back tax credits for low-income workers in recent years while cutting business taxes. In Michigan's case, low-income families will see their tax breaks shrink starting next year by about $260 million annually while businesses will get a $1.1 billion tax break starting in January and a $1.7 billion tax break the year after.
    The Governor and the Legislature passed the "Emergency Manager's Act" which says the Governor can appoint managers for towns with fiscal problems. Said managers can do what they want no matter what the residents of the city have voted for - nice democracy you got there boys. In the November elections, the voters of Michigan voted to nullify the Emergency Managers Act, Michigan's toughened emergency manager law rejected | Detroit Free Press | freep.com but the hard right legislature simply passed it again in December, Michigan Lawmakers Approve New Emergency Manager Law - Bloomberg

    Being arrested does not equate to criminal behaviour

    Charges Dropped Against Many Occupy Protesters Arrested In Oakland « CBS San Francisco

    Charges against Occupy Boston protesters dropped - Metro - The Boston Globe

    Charges dropped against four Occupy LR defendants

    Charges Dropped Against Many OWS Protesters Arrested On Brooklyn Bridge: Gothamist

    Sometimes the authorities are on the side of those committing violence: - Rand Paul Supporters Respond to MoveOn Protester by Stomping on Her Head -- Daily Intelligencer

    NOT being arrested does not mean there wasn't criminal behaviour
