Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

Even though he's a pussified democrat, and we all know what they've /their party has done to the cities, much respext is given For his dont take shit attitude. If only more politicians and elected officials had an attitude like this things would be better.

It should be ok to kick someone's ass who assaults you like that. It was in the past. Without the ability to threaten someone with an ass kicking, society will fall apart as every action of protest is protected by law no matter how much it offends the target. The guy had it coming plain and simple. I hoped he looked worse. The protesters would start thinking twice if this happened more often and act more civilized. They act like animals instead. Look what happened to the white girls in Charlotte yesterday. We've had enough.

So, after the initial assault, the assailant retreated. Then the mayor pursued the retreating assailant, tackled him and punched him several times causing serious injury. Someone tell me why this isn't assault and battery by the mayor as well.

The assailant retreated. The mayor was in no further danger. Only the mayor's pride was hurt. Sounds like we have two different offenses.

Let's compare this to deadly assault. Someone shoots at you but causes no injury. Then they run away. If you pursue that assailant and shoot them causing injury or death, then you can be criminally charged with attempted murder or 2nd degree murder dependent on the injury.

Just saying.

To the activists that say the gov over reacted...you lay a hand in a manner of any public official...the police will slam you to the floor in a manner that you would never think possible. Now if the gov, who's testosterone probably was running a tad to high..felt he was assaulted and by the way threatened...he did the right thing...this was not street justice... This was and always will be an act to defend yourself against a activist who thinks he's got rights..... LOL. To look like wants an acting job on the walking dead....I'm sure this fool will have a small part of the community behind him...btw many steps behind him.... Purple Heart club award...wear it proud fool

The mayor should have given this protester room to protest. Where's the safe space?

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

Another example of black privilege. Do you think he was be applauded if the races were reversed??? He would be charged too and have to resign as mayor, but if you are black you can assault white people without consequences.all the news outlet would be running the headline, "White racist mayor brutally assaults protester.".

It's a physical attack, could have been acid, lye, razor blade laced, boiling hot etc. You don't touch other people, period. First of all it scares the daylights out of em, second, you never know the reaction of the attacked. Someone runs at you with an unknown object in his hand, you could easily be in fear for you life, (that is all you need to shoot the attacker)

Sounds like he overdid it. The pie thrower posed no threat when the mayor attacked him. It looks like his civil rights were violated by the public official.

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

The protester got exactly what he wanted.

15 minutes of fame, street-cred among his unwashed, homeless 'occupy' buddies, publicly attacked by a millionaire elected official in front of many witnesses and probably cameras too...... and a great big imminent payday in the form of a fat settlement for the assault.

Granted he assaulted the Mayor first but that attack could be argued to have been in jest, street comedy, or even political protest. It's a minor offense as Johnson was not hurt by it. He was merely shocked and humiliated. There's no way Johnson can argue that he thought his life or person was in danger as the punk immediately ran off.

Johnson then accelerated the situation into a severe, very public, and reportedly bloody beating.

This protester is going to immediately lawyer-up. His free Obama-phone is probably being blown up by lawyers right now begging to represent him. The minor and comical charges against him (pie in the face) will be dropped and he will sue Johnson, the police dept. and the city for millions. He'll settle for about $100k for each blow to his face that your primitive mayor delivered.

Your mayor is an unintelligent idiot and a violent street thug......hiding behind the civility and veneer of a business suit and tie.

Sacramento......you are about to get what you deserve for electing a street thug.

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

This should happen more often, for every action there should be a reaction! To not react to this miserable mopes assault would be sad, weak and unreadable on the part of the mayor or any human being with any sense of survival. Well done mayor, well done!
