    He doesn’t look “almost killed”.

    there is this Japanese saying: ‘almost is not good enough’.

    “Almost”? Too bad.

    Some dipshit in the Harris Teeter parking lot ‘almost’ killed me too.

    I’m thinking that if the NYPD wanted you dead, you’d be dead. Sorry, calling bullshit on this one.

    If ever you get into a fight with communists “revolutionaries” and you kill them, it’s legitimate self defence. If they get their way we will all be rounded up and shot or shipped of to Gulags to be slave labour.

    As minority groups get larger by population to have more cases that gets in the Media….they don’t understand White people that treat every annoying A-hole equally
    but now that their colour or Religion is added they don’t want to look in the mirror.

    ”I will not be deterred,” he said.
    On the contrary, I think we can easily see he is “De Turd”

    High time nuisance law suits became very expensive.

    Point is not really about this case but the way this “news” report is done. There is no account of what happened leading to the arrest from either side, there is no mention of the injuries he claims to have received (and obviously no follow-up to verify them), and there’s not been a lawsuit filed.
    Why is it even being reported at this point? There is no actual story here yet. All this does is give people who hate the NYPD another “reason” to hate them and to give others another reason to question the police the next time something actually happens.
    What the hell happened to what was taught in journalism school? No way this would have gone to print, accordiing to what I learned, without other actions taken by the subjects and a lot more follow-up from the reporter.

    “Mostly peaceful” I’m guessing.
