This may be the dumbest thing I have ever seen:
I’ve been bumped harder in the line at the grocery store by an elderly woman with bad vision and low blood sugar. My goodness, in retrospect, I was apparently assaulted over a 1000 times at Dead shows in the 80’s and 90’s. Just fucking ridiculous. Someone was arrested for this?
I love the cop doing his congratulatory “we were just lucky to have the connections” spiel, but the victims advocate nonsense was really the icing on the cake. Yes, delicate flower Ashley Taylor, the state will inform you in case this menace should ever delicately nudge you 12 inches in the future.
Just so we are clear, what should have happened here? The guy should have been given a ticket for being a jackass or disorderly conduct, and Ashley Taylor should be punched in the neck for claiming this was an “assault.” She should have been sent to jail for the piece you saw above for criminal stupidity. And any self-respecting DA would dress down that idiot cop.

Odds on Ashley Taylor being a Republican? Anyone?
*** Update ***
Just did a little facebook “research.” It appears petunia is a Bob Jones university grad. I’m sure you are all shocked. Black men being within 100 yards of white women only recently became acceptable there, so now this all makes sense.
How long before this moron is on Fox News? Because you know this profile in courage is never going to be in a war zone or anywhere more dangerous than a baseball game (where I’ve also been “assaulted” worse than what happened to her in this video- I hope to Allah she never goes to a Steelers/Ravens game wearing the away team colors).
We’re the dumbest country ever.
