I just saw this on Boston.com. File under “New Lows in American Politics”.
The guy stepping on the woman’s head, after she’s already subdued and being held down by a couple other guys, this hero’s name is Tim Profitt.
From the Globe:
The person who struck Valle with his foot blamed police for not intervening.
“I’m sorry that it came to that, and I apologize if it appeared overly forceful, but I was concerned about Rand’s safety,” Tim Profitt said.
A judge will decide whether Profitt should face criminal charges.
Man assaulting a woman- disgraceful and cowardly. Man assaulting a woman while she’s being held down by other men- repulsive. Man stomping a woman’s head while she’s being held down and subdued for exercising freedom of political expression- horrible.
Not sure what Rand Paul has to say about this. Is he so delicate that he would disintegrate upon hearing from a dissenter? Does he really require this kind of “protection”?
As for Mr. Profitt, let’s hope the justice system deals with him accordingly. Personally, of course, I’d like to punch him in the mouth.
