Response to Atticus (Original post)

32. As you say, "If you ... I'm going to hurt you---BAD!" Since Crowder was not hurt, bad or otherwise,

 

shouldn't this raise a question as to whether this was just theatre?

The video shows, at most, one guy in a black cap swung that Crowder three times in anger and may have connected twice. Another guy grabbed Crowder's jacket collar from behind, but did not do any harm to Crowder.

Crowder's smile towards the camera at the end of the video shows that he wasn't hurt. He would not have given such a smile after an encounter with Jimmy Hoffa's Teamsters or after an encounter with the United Steel Workers during the 1959 strike.

No matter how much anger was displayed, no matter how much noise was created, that didn't do harm to Crowder. He was a willing participant.
