    I realize that this thread is going to sink like a stone, but would you like to place a bet on how many more than 1,000 posts it would receive if the arrogant, stupid, pathetic, loser with the bear spray had NOT been a supporter of Mr. Trump?

    PS - We've already received the first "But that's DIFFERENT!!!" post.
    The counterfactual is very strong in this one.

    Is there no topic for debate that involves things that actually have happened as opposed to conjecture about what would have happened if...?

    Stupid thing for the person to do. Same thing when people attack Trump supporters, vandalize, etc.
    As the saying goes, "you can't fix stupid".

    A search shows the mixed bag of peoples actions either for against Trump

    protesters attack trump supporters - Google Search

    1. Polar Bears are "white" (mostly, although "dingy white-yellowish grey" is closer).

    2. Black Bears are not "white".

    3. Your guess as to what type of bear repellent was used is as good as mine.
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't _DESERVE_ the best. What's second best?

    I note that no one at all has defended this guy's actions.

    That's encouraging.

    Can we just assume he isn't a member of Mensa?
    If you mean that question literally, no we can't. If you mean that question figuratively, yes we can.

    We can also assume (without much chance of being contradicted by facts) that he is a member of "Claque Trump".

    Like MS-13, Anitfa is largely a manufactured boogeyman, created by fox-news to further scare the dog-**** out of their cowardly audience.

    In reality, Antifa is like 20 trust-fund college kids whose numbers greatly dwindle when daddy cuts-off the credit card and makes them go back to attending classes.

    Technically you cannot have a "battery" WITHOUT an "assault" - although it is quite possible to have an "assault" without a "battery".

    California Criminal Code references


    Section 240 - An assault is an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another.

    Section 242 - A battery is any willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another.

    In short, Under the California Criminal Code, an "assault" is an unsuccessful attempt to commit a "battery" that could have been successful.

    Yes, I know, but here in CA, they're simply two different things. The term 'assault and battery' is never used in charging documents.
