    I love that he grabbed the little punk and made him wet his pants.... Did you hear the shaking in their voices: "It's for a project, sir."




    Your lying. they never blocked him. he was on the egress side of his journey when he assaulted those kids, he could have simply walked away.



    and you are avoiding my question.

    Re: Etheridge caught in on-camera confrontation

    I'm new to the forums so you all know hazlnut better than I. But to me it looks like he is here to simply throw a wrench in the discussions. His arguments have no logic to them. So much so it just appears he's trying to cause an argument. The fact that he puts his lean as moderate just shows me that he's not being honest. His comments are so out there and completely lacking any non-bias analysis. And that's the only response to his comments I'm going to give.

    As to the video. The Congressman's actions were completely inappropriate and yes more should be done than just an apology. Just imagine anybody doing this to YOU or one of your family members. It's not legal to just grab people in a threatening manner because you didn't like a question they asked you.

    Why is asking if he supported the "Obama agenda" so threatening or negative anyway? All presidents have an agenda. Why would it be a problem to ask a Congressman if he supported the agenda of the president?

    Also, I don't understand in anyway the people who say the kid was being a dick. You can argue that there may be a better time or place. Which is why the Congressman had the right to walk away and completely ignore them. It's not as if they followed him around harassing him. Anybody who wants to argue that it isn't right to address him outside, we could go around and around on that one forever. Because it's done on both sides all the time. Arguing about that just appears to me to be an attempt to diminish what the Congressman did. It's the BUT argument. You know, when you did something you knew was wrong but you don't want to completely put all the blame on yourself. I'm sure you've said it to your spouse 500 times.

    I think he means the same way "in your face journalist" are dicks. I personally grew to hate the press in the 1st gulf war. Most of them were "dicks" and I treated them as such. These kids, while being mildly dickish imo did not deserve to be assaulted, the congressman could have kept walking.

    Grabbing the arm and the the neck is self-defense. Ju-Jitsu! Look how beautifully he rolled the little turd to side, clearing a path for his escape. Well played, old man.

    The little legal lesson I was trying to bestow upon the good Rev is that assault is not the touching part. (technically speaking)

    And you can have battery without assault.

    Still lying about the incident I see. Typical hazlnut. he didn't make his egress but grabbed the kid by the neck, and assaulted him.

    Criminal Law: The Elements of Simple Assault in Washington, DC | Koehler Law


    FAIL


    There are two forms of misdemeanor assault (that is, simple assault) in Washington, D.C. First, there is “attempted battery assault” which occurs when the defendant injures or attempts to injure another person. The second form, “intent-to-frighten” assault, is defined as a threatening act that puts another person in reasonable fear of immediate injury.



    And you are still hiding from my question. What would you do, if I grabbed you like the congressman did that kid?

    So not only are you ignorant of what assault is, you are also ignorant of what self defense is.... Typical.

    No, with the video in hand I would have been well within my right of self defense. It is you whom are too much.

    Etheridge was walking down the street, trying to get somewhere when they used ambush journalism techniques(which I hate), rushing out to point a camera at him and ask him a stupid question. I don't think this is appropriate to do to any one, republican, democrat, sports figure, any one. There are appropriate ways to get questions answered and interviews, this is not one of them.
