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.".
Was the guy mad Kevin never paid the underage girl in Phoenix that he was "taking showers" with?
Good job KJ...I love it.

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)
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Bloody good show, Gov.
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.
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.
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!
Trying to justify the protestor's actions.....pathetic. He was looking for violence....walking away is just more seeking a violent response...Good for the Mayor. My only other thought is if the Mayor had been white and the protestor Black, what would the media's response have been, or what would the mayor's response have been. I think he would have feared media backlash. After all, SacBee's Marcos Breton usually comes down on the liberal side, like BLM and Kaepernick.
Move on! Nothing to see here!
Here's a bit of life advice. If you want to stage your idiotic protest it is best to NOT hit someone who is 6'6" tall, goes around 250 and made a living for years throwing guys just as big as he is around.
This moron gets my vote for stupidest protester of the year. Maybe of the decade.
His actions will cost the tax payers millions. It doesn't matter who you are, if someone throws anything at you then walks away and you pursue them like the mayor did and assault them causing injury to that person your toast.
The Mayor was the aggressor.
" Thompson was at one time an activist with the Occupy Sacramento movement. "
Obviously needed an azz-beating for a while. Good for the Mayor. Even if he IS a Hillary supporter.
The piece of sh*t protester will no doubt sue the city and win. The taxpayers that voted the mayor into office will no doubt have to pay the bill. Boy, he really showed him.
Activist, OWS troublemaker looking to create trouble, instead he found it, could not be happier! Good job Mayor America need this type of Mayor in Charlotte!
Sounds great to me! Looks like someone went to Johnson and begged him to beat his ass, and he beat that ass. Where's the video?
The pie was racist, it had a cream top so he was justified in behaving like a thug. The Mayor should have followed tribal culture and looted a store and burned a car or two.
