Motorist Attacked by Pro-Immigration Protesters — And Who Gets Arrested???

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 8:11 pm

Go watch the video at the L.A. Times Web site and tell me what you think.

I’m appalled that the motorist was arrested. (Although maybe the cops didn’t see the whole thing, so I can’t necessarily blame them.) I think the woman who leapt onto his car should have been arrested — probably with a few of her fellow protesters. Yet this guy is booked on assault with a deadly weapon? You’ve gotta be kidding me.

I hope the case is re-evaluated now that the video is available.

I’m on jury duty next week. Bring a case like this to me and I’ll vote to acquit and then lecture the prosecutor.

Outrageous.

  1. The driver was subsequently released and will face no charges.

    The jaywalkers should get tickets, but it probably won’t happen.

  2. “will face no charges” — do you have a link for that?
