1. I know absolutely nothing about this case.

But I guess I now know what color Johnson is.

2. Yeah, why use the "blonde" adjective instead of just "woman"?

If she wasn't blonde he could get away with it?

And btw, I know this isn't a popular opinion, but shouldn't there be charges on both sides?

4. Tamron Hall was exploring that earlier this morning.

According to the guy's lawyer, the woman kneed him in the groin at some point prior to that punch. You can't really see that (at least I can't) in the video. I would certainly hope that anyone who committed assault faced charges.

11. Look at the video again. It's brief but you can see her knee come up between them . . .

while he is holding her fist. She then throws a punch and he punches back.

The fact that she punched and kneed him is going to help him when it goes to trial.

He of course, should have walked away and not have retaliated with a punch.

18. Him grabbing her arm first is the first meaningful assault.


Prior to that there was just rude shoving fairly common at bars. Yes she put her arm up and made a fist but she didn't strike him or was making a forward motion to do so.

He put his hands on her first.

22. The trial will be interesting

In some jurisdictions flaunting a fist in someone's face is considered a threat and one is not obligated to wait to be hit without trying to stop it. He tried to stop it by holding her wrist

We'll see how it plays out as she then kneed and punched him before he retaliated with a harder punch.

Neither is completely innocent. I suspect there will be charges against her too at some point now that the video has gone viral.

20. She was trying to defend herself from a man who was aggressively attacking her.

What in the fuck do you expect her to do? Just sit back and take it? Sick, sick, sick. She had a right to defend herself.

21. You seem to make the same sort of argument the gun nuts do.

And the RW Israelis. That any insult, any aggression must be met with an escalation in violence.

That the answer to violence is more violence, and any other response is 'sitting back and taking it'.

I don't agree with either of them either.

The answer to violence is NOT more violence, not escalating anger. There are almost always other options available, and there certainly were other options available in a crowded bar.

8. Because if he'd said "white" he might have gotten suspended.

 

Dog whistle, y'know.

19. Class isn't defined by being a punching bag because the puncher has a vagina.

I have no idea where the concept that a woman should be allowed to do whatever terrible shit they want (or at least minimize it to about nothing) to a man.

16. or some TBI Traumatic Brain Injury, it can show up much later after a fall or severe hit on the head

... and the patient wont even know it unless they get to a neurologist or cognitive therapist.

His outburts etc and lacks of thurough thought make me think he hit his head

9. What makes Joe think he can get away with covering up the death of an intern?

 

Her name was Lori Klausutis.

10. Something you will NEVER hear from the M$M....

"what makes him (Ben Roethlisberger) think he could get away with punching a black woman?"

I am not saying Roethlisberger ever did that, but am just using it as an example. Though he did rape women.

14. ugh...blech...he is SO disgusting

I don't have so much words to describe my feelings for him, as I do retching noises.

And Mika is little better, with her simpering deference.

One of the most loathsome pairs on television. Who in the hell watches this excrement?
