31. lol, this is hilarious
Edited on Thu Sep-03-09 12:36 PM by Hutzpa
The man in the orange shirt hit the pro-reform guy (Im going to call him PR Guy just to keep the players straight). Hard. ( tweeted in real time) He punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground and into that thruway. As you can see from the photo, cars drive straight through that without stopping. The pro-reform guy could have been run over. He got up, tried to get back up on the curb, but Orange Shirt guy was in his face. Finger in his face, PR Guy standing, steps up to the curb, and theres a scuffle. Orange shirt seemed to have PR Guy in a hold, but again, I was across the street, so wont state that as absolute fact. Next thing I see is PR Guys hat being tossed into the street, both yelling at one another, then Orange shirt walks away, PR Guy picks up hat and crosses to our side.

When he gets to our side, he tells a story in one sentence: He punched me hard, straight in the face, so I bit his finger off.
and now he had to walk to the hospital for health care, funny
thing is, he might not have health insurance, see how ignorant these people are(?)


eyewitness account here;
