Trump Campaign Manager Arrested

The Trump Thugs are going down. Donald Trump’s National Campaign Manager’s mugging of a female reporter has earned him a visit to the Police Station with a charges of assault.

Trump Campaign Manager Charged With Battery Of Reporter He Called ‘Delusional’

Corey Lewandowski turned himself in to police early Tuesday.

Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was charged with battery Tuesday following an incident in which he allegedly grabbed a reporter, Michelle Fields, at a campaign event earlier this month.

Lewandowski turned himself in to police Tuesday morning in Jupiter, Florida, where he was charged with misdemeanor battery.

Trump and Lewandowski have repeatedly denied that the campaign manager grabbed Fields, and Lewandowski has called Fields “delusional.”

Fields released a photo of her arm with a series of finger-shaped bruises. And newly released video footage appears to show Lewandowski reaching over and roughly grabbing Fields at the Jupiter event, nearly throwing her off balance.

The video suggests that Lewandowski was lying when he attacked Fields’ credibility and accused her of seeking attention. This is a tactic Trump himself has popularized, through vicious and personal attacks on journalists like Megyn Kelly and Jorge Ramos.

Fields resigned from Breitbart News shortly after the incident, because she said the news outlet failed to publicly stand by her.

The Trump campaign responded to the charges Tuesday morning, telling reporters that Lewandowski will plead not guilty and that he intends to fight the charges.

Lewandowski will be represented by two defense lawyers. One of them is Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. attorney who was forced to resign that post in 1996 after he was accused of biting a stripper in Miami.

More Trump Supporters Charged and Arrested for Assault

This one turns out to be a Trump hired goon…Looks like a Felony to me.

Sixty-seven-year-old Linda Rothman was also charged for a separate incident with details not fully yet known.

Trump supporters charged with assault for rally attacks

A Donald Trump campaign supporter seen on video sucker-punching and then stomping on a prone protester at a rally in Tucson has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Officials say 32-year-old Tony Pettway was released at the scene and will have to appear in court.

In addition to Pettway, 67-year-old Linda Rothman was charged with misdemeanor assault for an incident at the rally in the Tucson Convention Center on Saturday, although details of that incident are unclear.

Pettway’s attack was captured on multiple videos, showing him ripping the sign out of the hand of a protester being escorted away from him and then punching the man. After the victim is on the ground, Pettway then repeatedly kicks him.

CBS affiliate KOLD in Tucson reports the victim’s name is Bryan Sanders.

“I was being escorted out of the building, I had that in my right hand a peace sign up,” Sanders said. “A guy grabbed the sign out of my right hand and sucker punched me. Then he go to top of me and hit me several more times.”

Amateur video from earlier in the rally appears to show Sanders accompanying a woman who was wearing a hood in the style of the Ku Klux Klan, as she makes what appears to be a Nazi-style salute. It appears the sign Sanders was carrying was a picture of Trump with the Confederate flag superimposed on top.

Students Attacked by Trump Supporter at Gas Station

More racist attacks by Trump Supporters…

Kansas students attacked by Trump fan at gas station: ‘Brown trash, go home — Trump will win’

Muslim and Hispanic students in Kansas were violently attacked by a man who made racist threats and warned them Donald Trump would win the presidential election.

Khondoker Usama, a Muslim and the student body vice president at Wichita State, said he and a friend were filling their vehicle with gas early Saturday near campus when a white man hurled a racial epithet at a black customer, reported The Wichita Eagle.

The man, who was in his 20s or 30s, then turned his attention to Usama and his friend.

“Then suddenly it turned onto us, calling us ‘brown trash, go home. Trump will win,’” Usama said.

The man then told the students they had better leave the U.S., but Usama told the man he had no right to say that.

The argument escalated, and Usama said the man punched his friend and then shoved him to the ground when he tried to intervene.

Usama said he backed away and called 911 after the attacker reached toward his pocket as he kicked the other student, who was knocked to the ground.

“He saw that I was calling the police and got back on his motorcycle and circled around us and was saying, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump — we will make America great again. You losers will be thrown out of the wall,’” Usama said.

 

Northwestern University freshmen spray-painted Nazi symbols and Trump’s name in chapel

Two freshman students are accused of spray-painting racist and homophobic slurs — along with swastikas and the name of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — inside a chapel at Northwestern University.

Anthony Morales and Matthew Kafker faced a Cook County judge Saturday on charges of institutional vandalism, hate crime to a place of worship and criminal damage to property, reported the Chicago Tribune.

The 19-year-old Morales and 18-year-old Kafker are accused of breaking into the nondenominational Alice Millar Chapel about 12:45 a.m. Friday and spray-painting the slurs on chapel walls and painting lines over photos of Muslim students posted inside the house of worship.

They also spray-painted penises throughout the church, including on a piano, and painted Nazi symbols in a hallway and Trump’s name in a stairwell.

Why Violence at Trump Rallies Matters

It has been extensively noted in the press that Drumph rallies are increasingly becoming more like Nazi Party rallies in the early 30’s. Drumph himself is promoting and encouraging violence against protesters, the press, and even innocent visitor of color at his rallies.

Donald Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies. His Fans Are Listening.

Yasmeen Alamiri was standing in the press pen at a Donald Trump rally in Radford, Virginia, late last month when a man in the crowd called her a terrorist.

The slur didn’t register, perhaps because Alamiri, a 31-year-old Arab-American, had heard it before, or more likely because she was focused on her work as a reporter for RarePolitics.com. It was another reporter who told her about the epithet.

Forty-five minutes later, as Alamiri walked to the edges of the press pen to get a good angle for her Facebook Live feed, it happened again. Another man in the crowd walked by and motioned to a nearby police officer. “Are you there for this terrorist?” he asked, gesturing to Alamiri.

She said she was spooked. Though she enjoys a good relationship with Trump’s staff, the rally was tense. “It felt like something could happen,” she told The Huffington Post.

At one point, Alamiri left to find a bathroom and approached a student from Radford University — where the rally was being held — to ask for directions. The young woman refused to help. “You are a member of the media,” she said, “and you are disgusting and sleazy.”

Alamiri was struck not just by the unprompted vitriol, but by the word choice. Trump had used the same adjectives to describe the press corps during his speech. “I was like, these supporters are just mimicking what he is saying and his anger, however staged it is, is resonating,” she recalled thinking.

After she finished covering the event and began walking to her car a few miles away, Alamir noticed herself moving briskly and not making eye contact with people in the crowd.

“I’m a foreign policy reporter. My family lives in Iraq and I go to Iraq every year,” she said. “For me to be scared of something says a lot, since I’m going to active war zones.”

Alamiri, in a perverse way, is one of the lucky among those who find themselves on the receiving end of Trump supporters’ abuse. Her incident in Virginia didn’t end in a physical altercation.

But another reporter’s did. At that same event, a Secret Service staffer grabbed a Time magazine photographer by the neck and slammed him into a table. The veteran White House photographer, Christopher Morris, had stepped out of the press pen to get a better shot of protesters. He later said he regretted his role in the confrontation, but called the agent’s response “unnecessarily violent.”

Racial slurs, nasty rhetoric and violence at Trump rallies have become commonplace against protesters, bystanders, and reporters. Assaults are committed not only by rowdy Trump fans, but by the staff he employs to keep the events safe. But rather than denounce these incidents, Trump is making them part of his brand, and uses them to rev up crowds.

“There may be somebody with tomatoes in the audience,” Trump warned people at a rally in Iowa last month. “If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell — I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.”

Trump has even threatened to personally get in on the action. “I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya,” he said of a protester on Feb. 22.

Threats against reporters have become so pervasive at Trump rallies that many of those who cover the Republican front-runner seem to have a personal story. As Katy Tur, the Trump embed for NBC News, described in a Tweet, “Trump trashes press. Crowd jeers. Guy by press ‘pen’ looks at us & screams “you’re a bitch!” Other gentleman gives cameras the double bird.”

As Trump moves closer to winning the Republican nomination, the tension at his events has grown….More Here

The problem with all of this is that it stirs up not only extremists on the right – but those who are opposed. Eventually someone responds in kind…Sometimes fashionably dressed in one of these…

Media Outrage Forces Trump Gestapo to Charge Assault Felon

Apparently Media outrage finally caused the Police to charge the felon.

Assault at Trump rally raises questions about police response

A 78-year-old man caught on video cold-cocking a protester at a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina was arrested Thursday, a day after the incident that happened right in front of police.

John McGraw, 78, was charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct in the assault, WRAL reported Thursday afternoon. But McGraw was not arrested or detained Wednesday night, leading some to question the police response.

In multiple videos of the incident, Rakeem Jones, 26, is seen walking up the steps of the Fayetteville Crown Coliseum on his way out of the arena. At least two Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department officers can be seen walking behind Jones as McGraw, with a pony tail and wearing a dark vest and cowboy hat, moves to the end of one of the aisles and, with his right hand, socks Jones in the face.

Jones is briefly obscured by a crowd of people as he reaches the top of the stairs, but, the next moment, he’s seen falling to the ground with a police officer on top of him. Three cops then restrain Jones for several seconds, flip him on to his stomach and then eventually lift him up and finish taking him out of the Coliseum.

“The police jumped on me like I was the one swinging,” Jones told The Washington Post. “My eye still hurts. It’s just shocking. The shock of it all is starting to set in. It’s like this dude really hit me and they let him get away with it. I was basically in police custody and got hit.”

But CCSO public information officer Sgt. Sean Swain disputed Jones’ version of events.

“I couldn’t see if officers took him to the ground, or if he fell to the ground. We haven’t talked to the officers at the top of the steps,” Swain, who was at the rally, told FoxNews.com on Thursday. “As I looked up, people would miss a step and they’d fall. Until we investigate it, we can’t say our officers took him down to the ground. Now, we did pick him off the ground and escort him out.”

Maryland Cop Who Put His Gun to Homeowner’s Head Sentenced to Prison

Imagine you have gone out with a friend to a restaurant or a ball game, and your friend drives. You get home, and your friend pulls the car in front of your house and you talk for a few minutes before exiting the car to go to your house. A Cop pulls up, and claims you are “illegally parked”, even though thee are no no-parking signs on the street – and you are still in the car with the engine running. You explain to the Cop that this is your house, show him your ID and get out to go home, when the Cop pulls out his gun, and points it in your face while screaming at you – threatening to kill you. That was exactly the situation in PG County in the Maryland suburbs last year. Fortunately a bystander caught the cop on video.

Justice actually happens…Sometimes. This one was an egregious case of a Prince George’s Cop, in the suburbs of Washington, DC attacking a pair of men, one of whom was being dropped off at his home by his friend. The motive apparently was to show off for some of the Cop’s friends who were on an illegal “ride along” on that day.

 Former Md. police officer sentenced for pointing gun at man’s head

The victim of the Police Assault, William Cunningham speaks to the press outside the Courthouse.

A former police officer who was found guilty of holding his gun to a Prince George’s County resident’s head to intimidate him will serve five years in prison without the chance of parole for his actions.

The sentence was the mandatory minimum that former Prince George’s County officer Jenchesky Santiago could have been given. He faced up to 45 years behind bars. He was convicted in December of first- and second-degree assault, use of a handgun during a crime of violence, and misconduct in office.

Santiago’s actions were captured on cellphone video, which was a key piece of evidence at his trial.

The incident happened in 2014 after Santiago, while on patrol, approached a car that he claimed was illegally parked in a Bowie neighborhood. When a passenger in that car tried to walk off to his home, Santiago ordered him back into the car, pulled his weapon when the man refused, and dared the man to a fight. He can be seen on video holding his gun up to the victim’s face.

Before handing down the sentence, Judge Dwight Jackson called the case “sad on a lot of levels” and said there were “no winners … only losers.”

Jackson, the son of a police officer, told Santiago “you have diminished them and what they do.” He speculated that Santiago was “perhaps bored, or perhaps wanted to show off” to two friends whom he had brought on an unauthorized ride-along that day.

The judge also heard at times tearful statements from Santiago’s mother, sister and fiancee, who described him as a caring, loving person devoted to his two young children. Jackson later said, “The person who is here to be sentenced bears no resemblance to the person they know.”

Prosecutors also accused Santiago of not taking responsibility for his actions. In a recorded phone conversation from jail, Santiago “described the fact that not only was he not remorseful and had no intention of apologizing in this case,” said Angela Alsobrooks, the state’s attorney for Prince George’s County, “but still believed even after this case that he was owed an apology from the victim.”

“It kind of didn’t sit well with me to hear that he was not apologetic, or had no remorse,” said victim William Cunningham outside the courthouse. “I did think that he may shoot me, or my life may have been in jeopardy.”

Santiago, now 26, was fired from the police department on Dec. 18. His lawyer said he also expects Santiago to be dishonorably discharged from the Navy, where he serves as a reservist.

Vicious and Depraved Men Beat Cerebral Palsy Victim in Detroit and Paste Crime on Facebook

There is a class on individuals called Sociopaths. People who have no feeling relative to the welfare of others. Fortunately in this case the scumbags were truly stupid – so it is unlikely they will do anyone else any harm for a long long time. This one is only different from the San Bernardino massacre in that the scumbags didn’t apparently have a gun.

‘Cowards’ Beat Man With Cerebral Palsy, Post Video on Facebook

Two “cowards” filmed themselves beating up a man with cerebral palsy using his own cell phone, then uploaded the evidence to the victim’s Facebook page, authorities in Michigan said.

Nikey Dashone Walker and Shadeed Dontae Bey, both 20, were arrested Monday for Sunday’s attack, which took place inside a stairwell at the victim’s Pontiac apartment complex, Oakland County Sheriff’s Department said.

Authorities said two men stole the 23-year-old victim’s cell phone and filmed the attack after he tried to get it back.

A graphic video released by the sheriff’s department shows the men viciously kicking and punching him until he appears unconscious on the floor.

“Record it. Hold on, record it,” one of the men says just after the victim falls to the ground after he appears to try to fight back.

At one point, one of the two men pauses to grin at the camera and boast about what he’s done. He appears to say  the man is “sleeping.”

“Come on let’s go,” one of them eventually says, leaving the victim lying on the ground as they return to the stairs.

Walker and Bey were arraigned Tuesday on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder; home invasion; and unarmed robbery — all felonies.
