Arrest warrant issued in assault of 69-year-old female protester at N.C. Trump rally

Arrest warrant issued in assault of 69-year-old female protester at N.C. Trump rally
By Fred Barbash September 14 at 4:09 AM

Police in Asheville, N.C., have issued an arrest warrant in connection with an assault outside a Trump rally on a 69-year-old protester wearing an oxygen tank to treat a lung disease.

Things got uglier as people were leaving, she said, when she taunted them, saying “‘You better learn to speak Russian,'” a reference to Trump’s praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin. “‘The first two words are going to be ha-ha,'” she told WLOS.

At that point, a man “stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me,” punching her in the face.

She said she fell on the tank she carried in a backpack and was treated at a hospital for sore ribs, a sore jaw and a scrape on her elbow.

On Tuesday, police said they issued a warrant for Richard L. Campbell of Edisto Island, S.C., in connection with the assault on Teter. He could not be located for comment.

So the Trump Brownshirts are just following the orders of their higher ups.

5. Me too!

Pro-Trump Cops. They explained they couldn't arrest the man because they, personally, did not witness him hitting her. What kind of police department is that? Lazy.

4. I'm glad they know who he is.

And I hope he gets a stiff penalty.
