Mike Tyson strategy replacing Cloward-Piven?

posted at 12:58 pm on September 3, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Bob Owens really took the best headline for the story about a MoveOn protester biting off a finger from an ObamaCare opponent, with Yes We Cannibal.   The best I can do is relate this to another notorious public maiming, but in that case, the fight itself was perfectly legal.  In this case, it may come down to who started the violence:

California authorities say a clash between opponents and supporters of health care reform ended with one man biting off another man’s finger.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Capt. Frank O’Hanlon says about 100 people demonstrating in favor of health care reforms rallied Wednesday night on a street corner. One protester walked across the street to confront about 25 counter-demonstrators.

O’Hanlon says the man got into an argument and fist fight, during which he bit off the left pinky of a 65-year-old man who opposed health care reform.

If the victim in this case initiated the violence, he could be guilty of battery, a misdemeanor.  However, biting off a finger is almost certainly assault with the intent to commit mayhem, a term used for deliberate disfigurement or amputation in California, and a felony.  One of the most infamous rape cases in recent years involved a man who raped a young woman and chopped off her arms, but the victim managed to survive.  “Mayhem” was the only charge at the time the state could apply besides the rape, and he only got 13 years for the crime.

ABC News confirmed this as I was writing it:

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department does not have a suspect at this time and does not know whether or not the suspect was a member of MoveOn.org.

“It’s considered a mayhem which is the removal of an appendage from a human,” said Norris of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department. “The crime is punishable by imprisonment for 2, 4, or 8 years.”

Whether or not the perp belonged to MoveOn is really immaterial.  As conservatives, we believe in individual responsibility, not group guilt.    Nevertheless, this does demonstrate — again — that most of the violence in these protests have come not from Tea Party activists or gun-carrying protesters, but from the counterprotesters from unions and left-wing groups.

Why might that be?  Other than desperation at losing the argument, I just can’t put my finger on it.

I was wondering how long it would take the left to praise the finger-biter in his fight againt ‘right-wing terrorists’.

gwelf on September 3, 2009 at 1:42 PM

Its not surprising that the left if using violence. After all, at least 25 or so members of the SDS/Weather Underground are either on staff or working closely with the White House.

Of course, if the left wants to start with the violence (remember the SEIU purple shirts a while back? How about the New Black Panthers…), I don’t think they will like how the right finishes it.

So remind me why is carrying at town hall or rally a bad idea again?

You know, if those students in Tienanmen Square would have been armed, China might be a different place right about now…

For an exercise in jumping the gun, look at CJ’s post on this. Here’s his “let me be clear” comment:

In case that wasn’t clear — a pro-health care demonstrator was apparently assaulted by an anti-health care demonstrator, and retaliated by chowing down on his pinky.

Well, except that that’s the exact opposite of what heppened, according to the police and to other media outlets.

No correction, no mention of the other reports from now several other outlets and from the Sheriff’s office or addendum (yet) as of 1:34p EST – he has his story and he’s sticking to it. This information has been public for hours and is even on Drudge.

I normally don’t really mind CJ’s ‘crusading’ – some of it is justified – but if he doesn’t plan on correcting or at the very least mentioning this information (particularly in light of what he wrote in his rush to condemn the right), then he appears to be a bit more dishonest than I had him pegged for.

And that’s a shame, because it was LGF that inspired me to start blogging. Prove me wrong, Charles, and post the updated reports that are now more numerous that the original incorrect report.

Who managed to survive? The woman or the rapist?

(Irritating grammar police)

lorien1973 on September 3, 2009 at 1:08 PM

The guy was Lawrence Singleton. In 1978 he raped teenage hitchhiker Mary Vincent, chopped off her arms and left her for dead in a ditch in Modesto, CA. (I grew up in Central California during that time and this incident was drilled into every kid’s memory by grown-ups to demonstrate the dangers of hitchhiking.)

She survived, he was caught and convicted. When he was paroled after serving eight years no town wanted him (go figure) and he had to live in a trailer at San Quentin for the rest of his parole. Legislation was later passed preventing the early release of offenders of such crimes.

Singleton later returned to his native Florida, where he was later convicted of murdering a prostitute in 1997. He died in prison of cancer and is now spending his free time burning in Hell for all eternity.

If the victim in this case initiated the violence, he could be guilty of battery, a misdemeanor.

The man who bit his finger crossed the street and got in the victims face – the victim pushed his face away. It’s called a defensive maneuver.

The point is exactly the opposite. In 5 years, under ObamaCare, that man will not get his finger reattached. It’s only a pinky, not an essential finger, and reattachment surgery is really expensive. We need that money to provide kidney dialysis for illegal Mexicans.

Fighton03 on September 3, 2009 at 2:09 PM

From the KTLA website:

“A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform.

The 65-year-old was apparently aggressive and hit the other man, who then retaliated by biting off his attacker’s pinky, according to Karoli from DrumsnWhistles, who attended the rally.

The man took his finger and walked to Los Robles hospital for treatment. Doctors reattached the finger, which was said to have been severed in half. He has since been released, according to a hospital spokesperson.”

Another account from an eyewitness:

“Several minutes later, there was another altercation. My best recollection is that this man saw what happened to the woman and reacted to it. I cannot say with certainty where he was when he saw it — he may have arrived and was navigating his way through that group, or he may have crossed the street to defend her. He was confronted by the same man. I could tell from where I was that the man was belligerent, angry, and confrontational.

The man in the orange shirt hit the pro-reform guy (I’m 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 there’s a scuffle. Orange shirt seemed to have PR Guy in a hold, but again, I was across the street, so won’t state that as absolute fact. Next thing I see is PR Guy’s 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.”

Honestly, I thought he was exaggerating. I guess he wasn’t.

I’ve given this report to the police along with my photos.”

To be clear, both of these are based on Karoli’s account.

Dude was looking to stir things up, if you ask me.

Why didn’t he walk around the anti-reform crowd to get to his colleagues, instead of forcing his way through the opposition crowd.

He was either stupid, or looking for a fight. Probably both.

According to this site:

About 20 minutes earlier, a man on MoveOn.org’s side of the street crossed over and shouted “Why don’t you like the public option?” Several of the counter-protesters said that they don’t want the government to run everything. The MoveOn.org man got nose to nose with a short, gray-haired counter-protester, and sneered, “You’re an idiot.”

At that point, I’m told the victim either swung at or pushed his assailant’s face away with an open hand, and his finger entered his mouth.

“It was a defensive strike,” said Scott Bush, who witnessed the altercation. He said the assailant approached him in an unpredictable and threatening manner.

The MoveOn.org protester then allegedly bit off the finger up to the first knuckle, and spat it into the street where it was recovered by Bush.

“I picked it up and it had a piece of gravel stuck on it,” he said. Bush rushed it to the hospital.

The attacker started back to the other side of the street, but then returned to briefly argue some more or attempt to justify what he had done before “swaggering off”, in the words of one witness. Deputies obtained a description of the suspect and searched the area but returned empty-handed.

That was some eye witness account given to Mark Steyn. I heard it all. All of the anti-ObamaCare protesters remained on their own side of the street, on the sidewalk. The pro-Obama-thug crossed the street, singled out the old man, accosted him, grabbed him and pulled him into the street that had oncoming traffic, and bit off his finger and marched away. The victim couldn’t believe what just happened, and walked off to the nearest hospital. The eye witness was shocked, and quickly realized the old man didn’t have his finger, and had to look in the street, finding it 10 feet away from the scuffle, called 9/11, was directed to the nearest hospital, where he found the old man being treated in the Emergency Room and gave the nurse the finger. (All said and done, the hospital spokeswoman broke a law announcing that indeed this victim is a Medicaid recipient.)

The witness returned to the protest scene, saw that the blood-sucking thug was accepted back into their ranks and was still being heralded for his thuggery.

By the time the police arrived, the pro-Obama people wouldn’t help identify the man, having aided his cover and departure.

Taking into account all of this, SHAME ON OBAMA for inciting his supporters to violent acts. Considering how Obama supporters treat those who don’t like him, be very wary into which circumstances you place your child. This story will be playground fodder for bullies to re-enact.

Thanks for the link to Ingemunson’s site.

At the end of the night, the MoveOn.org protesters had to cross the street to return to their cars; several groups of them walked carelessly into the crime scene and stepped on the spatters of blood, not hearing the deputies’ shouts to stay on the grass.

Why didn’t the deputies tape off the crime scene if they wanted/needed it preserved at the time for evidence?

William Rice, 65, of Newbury Park also confirmed reports that he threw the first punch in the confrontation that claimed part of his left pinky.

Maybe it’s just me, but something about it didn’t seem right. I’m not excusing the a**hole who bit off his finger, who ought to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But on that front, why would you not want to sue someone who did that to you? I don’t get it.

Cylor on September 3, 2009 at 5:27 PM

That was some eye witness account given to Mark Steyn…maverick muse on September 3, 2009 at 3:46 PM

Yes I heard the same eyewitness report – and I’d add that he sounded intelligent, composed, and credible. He also reported that not only did the MoveOn.org assailant approach them from the street, but stayed in the street, verbally attacking, but avoided younger stonger men who were in the same group. However, he then closed threateningly (within inches) with the elderly man, who raised his hands in a defense posture. The attacker then bit off the older guy’s finger.

Part of me is somewhat dissapointed that the younger guys didn’t move to defend the weaker old man. However it could be that it all happened too fast for them to react. Seems probable though that the MoveOn. perp had an agenda to provoke a confrontation – so in a sense I guess a bigger melee may have been avoided.

As for the currently in vogue meme, that “we believe in individual responsibility, not group guilt”: I suspect that as these organized agent provocateurs excercise their New Black Panther Party, SEIU, et al commissions, more innocent citizen’s blood will be spilt on the streets.

How long the weaker of our flock will absorb such violent attacks before deciding to avoid the protests and stay home is a pertinent question. As is the question of how long before such attacks provoke counterstrike tactics? To expect that patriots on the right will all just sit on the sidelines, and not pay the cost of defending freedom with their blood if necessary, may be wishy-washy thinking. Most of us men learned early, that the only way to stop the bully is with force, singing Kumbaya doesn’t work with thugs.
I suspect, that in the end, it will come down to how much citizen revolution it will take to convince the Government that we want this Democrat Fascist makeover of the USA to cease!

Man, you guys are really putting up some great one-liners on this thread.

LOL, a lot.

“The crime is punishable by imprisonment for 2, 4, or 8 years.”

Does that mean that under no circumstances will the cannibal go to jail for 3,5,6, or 7 years?

Pass these out in DC on 9/12. LOL

Why all the defense of the fingerless guy who admits that he threw the first punch? Where’s the support of non-aggression and just self-defense?

He didn’t “push him away” — he (and this is according to him) “threw a punch.”

Screw him. I’d have done a lot worse than bite his finger off.
