If I reasonably believe you are going to attack me I can defend myself. If you actually spray your dirt neck spittle on me, that is an actual physical attack, and I can definitely defend myself. And if you come at me screaming and flinging your infected spit around, and I kick you in the chest, I don't expect to hear any crying about it.
There you go again.GHETTOBLASTER » 13 Sep 2021, 1:40 pm » wrote: ↑
.....these verbal threats and insults from Protestors would seem absolutely TERRIFYING....
Oh, good, Internet tough guy gibbering in defense of a stupid monkey embarrassing herself in a grocery store.
If this was greasy white liberals whining about black lives mattering to customers at a fancy eatery you would be emitting a different tune. No physical contact, it was not assault. It certainly was **** biased "journalism".splunch » 13 Sep 2021, 1:42 pm » wrote: ↑
Boy, for a bunch of self-reliant Marlboro Men who are always talking **** about how personal accountability is king, you people sure are quick to start quibbling over fancy words to try to avoid consequences for behavior that is obviously unacceptable.
It isn't that. It's this. And the comments are about this. Assault is assault, not battery. There is a difference. You don't know what it is. And you are defending a woman acting like a real scumbag in a grocery store. It's got nothing to do with BLM or any fancy eatery. It has to do with this stupid ******* losing her **** and disrespecting everyone around her. You think that's okay because you don't like BLM? You stupid or something?
Yes, I'm super worried. Do Isabel a favor though, whoever she is. Don't **** with her because you're embarrassed that one of your people is acting like an idiot in a grocery store. It's not her fault. It's not mine, either.
I think such behavior is not criminal, not assault. Certainly nothing to aspire to in either case. Free speech isn't free, we have to tolerate ******* having the same rights.splunch » 13 Sep 2021, 1:54 pm » wrote: ↑
So now you know. If you menace, if you crowd, if you threaten, if you place me in reasonable apprehension of imminent bodily harm or offensive contact, that is assault. Battery is something else. People are often charged with assault when nobody is beaten up.In criminal law, assault refers to a criminal act of intentionally placing another individual in reasonable apprehension of imminent bodily harm or an offensive contact
That definition doesn't apply to subjectively threatening speech. Specific threats are obviously not protected. Pointing a gun at someone is assault. Shooting them is assault, attempted murder, felony menacing etc.splunch » 13 Sep 2021, 2:01 pm » wrote: ↑
Of course. All we did was peacefully walk onto the Capitol grounds, gently persuade the Capitol Police to allow us to enter, and graciously take a civilized tour around the building while Congress peacefully went about their business. Whatever could be the problem, Your Honor?
Officers are being "disciplined" for holding doors and taking selfies with protesters. Those that used violence should be charged. Those who merely trespassed should perhaps be charged as well, or we could follow the blm riot precedent and have GOP representatives and celebrities pay for their criminal defenses.splunch » 13 Sep 2021, 2:09 pm » wrote: ↑
Won't be one. Fat redneck cowards know that next time they wont outnumber their intended victims a hundred to one.
(a) A person commits the offense of simple assault when he or she either: (1) Attempts to commit a violent injury to the person of another; or. (2) Commits an act which places another in reasonable apprehension of immediately receiving a violent injury.

Time to start arresting them.
A Georgia vaccine site had to close after protesters bullied health-care workers:
‘This is absolutely wrong’[img]data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAAEAAAABCAQAAAC1HAwCAAAAC0lEQVR42mNkYAAAAAYAAjCB0C8AAAAASUVORK5CYII=[/img]As the state faces a surge of covid-19 cases, Georgia health-care workers recently had to shut down and vacate a mobile vaccination clinic after being threatened by a swarm of protesters. Others are receiving harassing emails, and some are seeing their social media accounts flooded with false information about vaccines.
The state’s top health official detailed the examples of increasing hostility toward health-care workers during a Monday briefing. Speaking alongside Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, she pleaded for civility toward those working “tirelessly to keep people alive.”
“This is wrong. This is absolutely wrong,” Kathleen Toomey, the state’s Department of Public Health commissioner, said during the news conference. “These people are giving their lives to help others and to help us in the state. We in Georgia can do better.”
Toomey said she was particularly troubled by the vaccine site shuttering over “harassment, bullying and threats directed at our team.” In Georgia, 41.2 percent of eligible residents are fully vaccinated, according to The Washington Post’s tracker. The national rate is 52.4 percent.St. Louis public health leader said a mob called him racist slurs for promoting masks: ‘We are not the enemy’Throughout the pandemic, health-care workers and public officials have faced threats for promoting vaccines, encouraging the use of masks and battling disinformation.
Harassment was so rampant in Colorado that the state banned the doxing of public health workers.
After battling the virus for more than a year, many health professionals are burned out. Roughly 3 in 10 health workers have considered leaving the profession.Burned out by the pandemic, 3 in 10 health-care workers consider leaving the professionToomey on Monday referenced the fatigue of health-care workers in Georgia. They are again seeing an influx of critically ill patients, including some who need to be put on ventilators. “I know how tired they are,” she said of the health workers.
Though Toomey offered few specifics about the harassing behavior, her spokeswoman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that health-care workers in Georgia have been “yelled at, threatened and demeaned by some of the very members of the public they were trying to help.”
“Aside from feeling threatened themselves, staff realized no one would want to come to that location for a vaccination under those circumstances, so they packed up and left,” the spokeswoman, Nancy Nydam, told the Journal-Constitution, adding that the vaccine site was in north Georgia.At the Monday news conference, Toomey said that as a senior health official, she expects a certain degree of public backlash. But no one should be directing their anger about pandemic policies toward those on the front lines, she said.
“Maybe it comes with the territory of someone in my position, but it shouldn’t be happening to those nurses who are working in the field to try to keep this state safe,” Toomey said. “We should be thanking these individuals for trying to get lifesaving vaccines to our state.”Georgia’s new daily reported covid-19 infections rose by nearly 15 percent in the past week, according to The Post’s coronavirus tracker. During that same time period, new daily reported deaths were up by more than 72 percent.Nearly all new reported infections are attributable to the highly contagious delta variant, Toomey said at the news conference.
