From a schoolmate who lives nearby. Man in Louisville chokes teen he thinks wasn't social distancing

https://www.reddit.com/r/ActualPublicFreakouts/comments/fv2a12/man_strangles_teenage_girl_for_failing_to_social/

Unbelievable

The teens did appear to be congregating improperly, esp in light of how much Gov Beshear has pushed for social distancing but this guy should be spending the night in jail

9. This guy should be spending the night in jail?

I disagree. This man is dangerous. He needs to go away for a lot longer than one night.

11. You gotta read further down in the Reddit thread for context.

The old lady ( yikes, guess I'm an old lady these days) was going to film the kids hanging out. The black teen snatched her phone and refused to give it back. That's why the old guy attacked the teen, not cuz he felt like jumping a black person per se.

I hope he's identified and charged. This is pretty serious as far as I'm concerned.

12. Find it hard to read reddit comments much. I dug further as you did

From OP:

My friends and I were irresponsibly failing to social distance at Norton Commons Amphitheater. I understand that we are a part of the problem, but I think we in no way warranted what proceeded to happen. A couple who was clearly intoxicated and angry approached us while cussing and borderline yelling. They were claiming to be physicians, which I donít doubt, and were criticizing us for being out. The woman shoved her phone in one of the girls faces and she knocked it out of the womanís hand in an attempt to get her away. That is the initial commotion in the back. The man then shoved/hit two girls out of the way and proceeded to choke the girl on the ground. I have an extended video that includes myself yelling at the man to stop. I am not sure that he would have stopped without my presence, as I was one of two guys in the group and am a decent amount bigger than the guy. I didnít want to post myself cussing on the internet, but am more than willing to hand it over to someone who can edit my face out. There is an ongoing police investigation, and the video is now allowed to be released, but I think this man deserves to be publicly shamed for what he did. It is embarrassing and terrifying for a grown man to assault an 18 year old girl. If anyone can help identify the people or help get



EDIT: keep in mind this is in an upper middle class neighborhood thatís similar to what Celebration is like near Disney. A lot of privilege all around in there

13. It's a really horrible event. :(

I hope to God that the thug doesn't get away with this. It's absolutely inexcusable. And if white privilege and classism gets this guy off the hook, I'm going to have a conniption fit.

14. UPDATE - Physician was Arrested!

https://www.wave3.com/2020/04/07/physician-arrested-following-norton-commons-confrontation-captured-video/
John Rademaker faces one count of first-degree strangulation and three counts of harassment with physical contact, according to a statement just sent out by LMPD at about 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Officers were called out to Norton Commons on Friday night on a report that a man had shoved several young females and tried to strangle another. Video of the incident surfaced on Reddit over the weekend. The short clip showed the man, believed to be Rademaker, shoving several young females, then going to the ground and strangling one of their friends.
