Good for Thompson to get his ass whipped. However, Johnson got away for apting several toddlers, so Thompson should not be charged with a felony for putting a pie in Johnson's face.

Re: “Oakland's Sweeping Plan for Parking

Oakland is definitely on the right track but based on some of the comments, it will take a while for folks to understand the approach. When I travel from my place in the Jack London District to downtown Berkeley or the UC campus I use public transit or park in one of the public garages. Yes, it is more expensive to park on the street. That's the idea! We do need to find more ways to get folks to/from BART. Easy for me to walk to Broadway and tale the free shuttle. All of the developers flocking to downtown Berkeley should be required to contribute to this service so it can be expanded. And it won't hurt folks to walk a few blocks. In fact, it's good exercise! Parking must also be "unbundled" from new development so it's not necessary to pay for a parking space that you might not use. The price we pay to provide "housing" for our car vehicles is absurd.

What is wrong that guy . In a way he got what he deserve. In other words don't. Take kindness for weakness. He need to think about that.

LOL, you mess with the bull you get the horns. Sage advice. When you are the one initially assaulted, you can't "assault back" as your headline suggests. It's called self defense. And in this era of uncertainty, who knows what could have been in that pie? What a dick...expect to get clocked if you hit someone in the face, with a pie OR a fist. He got what he deserved.

Downtown Sacramento looks like a depression era ghost town, KJ rigged up taxpayers to fork up a quarter billion dollars for a privately owned basketball team and the rednecks are crawling out of the woodwork to praise a beating from the crook that took the City of Sacramento to the poorhouse? The 1% just sit back and howl at you fools and wait for you to come and kiss their feet while they beat you senseless. Get a clue.

He should have just beat him like they beat the white guy in NC last night. Get all that black rage out.

Assault is assault, it doesn't matter what you used it could have been a freaking pacifier from a child... Repercussions are for everything... I would have beat the brakes off him also... Just another bleeding heart Democrat... That goes for all you other softhearted little punks out there, too, with your stupid a** with comments...

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

The response to the original "attack" was far too great. A pie in the face does not equal 12 full-strength blows to the face. Anyone who has ever taken a single martial arts lesson knows that you neutralize your opponent, you do NOT continue beating him once he is subdued.

@Rick Labonte, Pat Babcock--Johnson is a thug for FIGHTING BACK to an assault? What are your thoughts about thug cop who shoot unarmed citizens?

Give the mayor a medal and perhaps lessons in boxing so that the next time it doesn't take more than 1 or 2 hits to render the assailant neutralized. Of course, if this had happened anywhere where people can concealed carry, perhaps the assailant would be dead and the world would be a better place.

"reacted...like most people do when attacked by an unknown object." - yeah like Ron Artest did when hit with a water bottle. Good job Kev Johnson. Way to break the violent, hot-headed ballplayer stereotype.

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

...and to all the vengeful people commenting: Really? This is what you believe? Kill the hippies!...?

Just FYI, because of such vengeful sentiments, the U.S. has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of its prisoners. That's right. If we were an *average* nation, four out of five of the people currently behind bars wouldn't be there.

But it prevents crime, right? Nope. Canada has exactly our demographics, and incarcerates (per-capita) at 1/7th our rate. Canadian and U.S. crime have differed only insignificantly for the last 50 years.

But it scares the addicts straight, right? (Because lots of drug war prisoners).

Again, nope. Actual medical treatment produces better outcomes at 1/7th the cost.

See...you can have better housing, better education for your kids, better infrastructure...lots of things. Or you can have the fruits of your vengeful anger, and lots of vengeance wreaked on our outsized prison populations.

That's your choice: anger or prosperity. There isn't a third option.

So...is it really that important to be right? Do y'all get a toaster or some or other prize I don't know about?

Please. It was a pie, not a hand grenade. Let's have a sense of proportion.

Oh yes, and one more thing: KJ has terminated his "promising" political career because one too many under-age women came forward claiming he made unwelcome and aggressive sexual advances.

You simply can't find more callow opportunists than KJ and his wife.
