Rand Paul Calls Head-Stomping "A Bit of a Crowd Control Problem"

There still don't seem to be any arrests in the matter of Rand Paul supporters detaining and stomping on a liberal lady. Then Paul rather shrugged it off on the TV.

"But we got the disruptive part of the crowd on our I'm Randy For America boxcars and everyone else seemed to settle right down."

Conway uses this as an excuse to harp on Aqua Buddha some more in 5, 4, 3…

I have an acute fear of curb-stomping, and as such have been avoiding this story like the plague, but could someone here please tell me if the woman who was attacked is going to be okay?

The video (which I do not recommend watching, as it shows the stomping no less than a thousand times) shows her talking to some camera after the incident, but she is in the hospital and I have not found a site with an update of her condition. I will keep you posted–

This was a clear act of self-defense. He could clearly discern that she was trying to take his freedoms away through policies that lead to big government and fiscal irresponsibility.

Yes, and arresting him would only prove his point about the police state we live in.

@cherri: She\'s fine. Not to downplay it, but it wasn\'t a Sopranos style \"curbstomping.\" The guy just stepped on her neck and head to keep her down. It was a little rough but nothing horrific.

Agree that it isn't as awful as someone getting their face kicked in, etc., but there is something about the image of men throwing down women that automatically sets off the Horror Meter in my brain.

Oh definitely. It's wrong and mean and an unnecessary use of force. Those guys are dicks too. I just also share cherri's fear of a true "curbstomping" and this was not one of them.

@stc: Such restraint (hoo boy)! I expect better next time.

Yep, if we don't want the government taking over, we'd better get rid of protesters and journalists and all those asshat ACLU types.

cherrispryte (#444)

This is comforting. I was picturing American History X-style curbstomping. ….. Yes, I do hate my imgaination, why do you ask?

saythatscool (#101)

@cherri: See that's what I thought I was going to see and I didn't want to watch it for that reason too. I hope I am not pissing off anybody with my comments. I was just trying to communicate to you that I share your fear and I don't think this would bother you.

There is a long continuum of stomping and I'm glad to hear this was not on the Ed Norton end of it. (Still not going to watch because ugghhhhhhhhh)

cherrispryte (#444)

@STC – greatly appreciated.

Yet again I bring up the prescience of The Handmaid's Tale. Oy.

Denim, but no suede. Is she at least someone's uncool niece?
