Good for him! If the smelly hippie threw a pie in my face (assaulted me) I would have kicked his arse too. Actions have consequences.
If Donald Trump punched a pie thrower he'd be crucified by the media!!!
Good on the mayor. Pie guy started the assault, Hizzoner finished it. I don't see race in this at all, just a bully boy who bit off more than he could chew. I love stories like that.
Let's see. In NYC, a man is slashed in the face. No information about the assailant, except that he is "heavy set". In Sacramento, a white guy puts a pie in the face of the black mayor. The assailant's picture is on display for all to see. Great example of the duplicity and racism of the press...
Johnson should be arrested for assault
Felony assault for a pie, c'mon.
Hahaha. Watching an Occutard getting a beat down. Now THAT'S entertainment!
Good job, Mr. Mayor!
Hey...you elected a 32 year old jock to be your mayor...what did you expect?
Johnson was a great Bball player for my Suns, but he has proven to be a left-wing corrupt politician. That said, I have no problem with personal retribution for physical attacks like this. Who knows what's in that "pie"? You can't assume the attack is symbolic or harmless just because it is disguised as such. If these "protesters" expect to get beaten when they try this crap they would think twice. Deterrence is mine sayeth...
Well im sure the father of the little girl Kevin molested back in Arizona is wishing he had a crack at Kevin they way that guy did and more!
When is the press going to STOP referring to criminals as protesters. The headline should read "....Assaults Attacker in Bloody Scene." Good to see that the press covering Charlotte fiasco is starting to use the word rioters instead of protesters. Once the violence starts and people start breaking laws and/or attacking people, the situation is no longer a protest. It becomes criminal behavior and it should be handled and reported as such.
Guess he picked the wrong flavor pie.
Let's be honest here people, if the Mayor were white and the pie thrower black, the Internet would be full people demanding the mayor be arrested or step down. Now someone please lie and tell me I'm wrong.
the mayor is a figure head who doesn't listen, if someone is going to be charged with assault should it not atleast be a real assault not just petty mayhem.
I imagine the OWS-type pie-thrower dude who got his butt kicked has a lawyer by now. The pie-thrower was a POS, to be sure, but that beat down was highly over-reactive and very much over the line. Thompson was running away. He should have been arrested. At most, Johnson or his minions should have just restrained him until the cops could take custody and book and charge him for assault. Johnson, instead, behaved like a depraved savage.
But that's black privilege for you. If a white mayor had beaten a black protestor that severely for throwing a pie at him that was simply an insult but not injurious, his career would be over, he'd be bankrupted by the lawsuit, and facing a jail term.
Looks like the jack wad hippy got his Just Desserts. Throw a pie, get a busted eye. Nice.
Nyuk nyuk nyuk!!
I'm glad the Mayor did what he did. I clearly remember the Occupy protesters. They left a mess wherever they went, they raped several women, one person was murdered in an Occupy camp. I remember all the broken windows in Oakland. Just senseless destruction.
Good for Mayor Johnson!
What if it were a lime wedge instead of a pie? Like the one that was thrown at Beyoncé's sister at the Kraftwerk concert. Would that justify beating someones face to a pulp too? To believe that some segments of the black population in this country will ever assimilate into civilized society is like pissing into the wind....
