    What I love about this guy and the far-rightie's response to the story is how you all talk so big about your guns and your wars and your "taking back the country" but when some old dude grabs you by the scuff of your neck, you practically wet your pants...

    Classic!!

    I think the reason the faces were blurred out is to hide the tears in the little boy's eyes when he found out the other meaning of 'gotcha journalism...' -- when your intended victim grabs you and says: "Who are you?"
    Asking a public figure on a public sidewalk a simple question = victimization in your world? Again I have to ask are you out of your ****ing mind?

    Yeah, maybe, but they could have just been trying to get some extra credit in their class by getting a short interview with a public servant.

    Not unheard of....

    And why is asking a congressman whether or not he supports the Presidents agenda a "stupid question"? or, are you saying that these people that are PUBLIC SERVANTS too damned important to answer a question from us lowly serfs anymore?

    I think that you are assuming perhaps so am I.... Perhaps we should let him explain himself and go from there.






    as for the congressman, he came off as rather arrogant to me, yes. in the assault given his thinking he had the right to put his hands on the young men. yes....




    Also note, the kids never blocked his progress, the guy stopped, and actually tuned back and said "who are you"?


    He was as much an instigator now that I watched this again, as the kids... He clearly could have kept walking, instead he asked the kid twice "who are you" then assaults the kid.

    Typical, Rev, still needs reading lessons.

    Hey, Johnny Cochran... Read my first post re: assault - I said DC may have a different statuary definition. Did you not read that???

    Stop trying to play the big shot who knows how to google and just accept that you didn't know the difference between assualt and battery until TODAY.

    WHEN I TAUGHT IT TO YOU.


    And you're welcome.


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

    What exactly happened?

    Describe the scene...

    What we do know is that Mr. Etheridge is political toast.

    Mouth foaming hackery by the usual suspect. I schooled you and now your having a fit.


    how did you teach me what "battery" was?


    as soon as the congressman touched him, it became battery.






    And you're welcome.

    Irrellevant, answer the question. what would you do, if I grabbed you like the congressman did those kids.


    Your lack of answering is pretty embarrassing.

    If you beat the congressman (as you described) you would go to jail. Period.

    Self-defense = run away from the old man who can't chase you.

    He felt ambushed and tried to move past them.

    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."
    They were wearing suits, standing on the sidewalk and greeted the Ass with Hi, Congressman, how are you?
    YouTube - Congressman Assaults Student on Washington Sidewalk
    Have a look.

    Deep threat them kids. LARGE CAMERA and mentioned that assault word: OBAMA... ROTFLMFAO... do you write for Rosie O'Donnell? Or are you the telepromteur dude at the WH?

    You also contradict yourself in a few short sentences: "He felt ambushed... the little punk..."

    ROTFLMFAO... Maybe you don't write for Rosie, maybe you are Rosie... Are you?

    Obama, Obama, Obama...
    LOL
