Re: He made one mistake
The reporter was Ben Jacobs from the Guardian. It all took place in public. See the report on Boing Boing. Why do you make up lies about the assault, Daedalus?
And in any case, two wrongs don't make a right. Just because someone is close to you or even shouting, doesn't give you the right to hit them. It is time politicians with too much testosterone were cured the same way a farmer deals with an agressive bull.
