Here's a better view from Inside Edition. (Warning advertising).



There is a better angle of this cowardly attack.

Don't care what the guy was saying. I wonder if Trump denounced this.

Charges have been filed. This is not OK.

There is lots of anger out there. Trump should not throw gas on it.

oh what?? He was just trying to reboot the whole knockout game thing made popular by black youths across America? Except he clearly did it in reverse, as it is usually a unsuspecting helpless elderly individual being targeted by a cowardly impolite youth for a devastating blow.

I cant help but be amused at how blatant racism still is when authorities even in such a case as this demonstrate.

Is this really surprising? to anyone?

Could it be foreshadowing a Drumpf future?

The guy who hit him should be arrested!

What I find hilarious are those disingenuous enough to blame the actions of one on someone who had nothing to do with the crime committed?

But carry on, this is fun!

I think Trump should be charged for inciting this. He even said he'd pay for the fines.......

He's been found and charged; but little else to the story so far

A supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump who was seen on video sucker-punching a black man in the face at a rally in North Carolina on Wednesday has been charged. Cell phone video posted online showed a white man in a cowboy hat punching an unsuspecting black man during Trump’s rallying in Fayetteville. The victim, later identified as Rakeem Jones, also said that he was targeted with racial slurs. WRAL reported on Thursday that 78-year-old John McGraw of Linden, NC had been charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct.

Please correct me if i am wrong, but isn't one of the big boasts we hear from Americans is " We have freedom of speech "

What a joke.

I still like the politician in New Zealand who recently had a dildo thrown at him; everyone had a good laugh.

Don't rely on "Inside Edition" for your thread title; that dude elbowed the guy.

We'll call it a "sucker elbow."

It was an okay elbow, too--at least his wrist seemed turned with his palm facing his body so that the radius and ulna were properly aligned.

This whole season of presidential rallies is a load of poppycock, and those who attend the rallies (either in support or protest) are the ones who tend to act like children who exchange civility with mob mentality. It's pathetic to watch.

That was hilarious.

Then I would've knocked you out.

Act like an animal you get treated like one. Maybe someday they'll figure that out.

I'd answer that, but I'm being told that I cannot, as it might hurt someone's feelings.

Guys, guys. It's fine, he is my grandpa and the reason he punched that black guy was because, the black guy voted for Obama.
Nothing else.

I think the joke here is your understanding of the Constitution and freedom of speech. The Constitution pilots the power of the government. The first amendments freedom of speech can only be violated by a state actor not a guy with a quick right on a cowboy hat. That's seriously first grade stuff. Why say anything m if you have no idea what's going on?
