Pick On Someone Your Own Size...

Oh, this kid is going to have a rough time in life...

Deputy U.S. marshal attacked on Allegheny River trail
A deputy U.S. marshal chased down a Spring Garden teenager after the teen pulled down her pants while she ran along a North Side trail, according to court documents released Wednesday.

Pittsburgh police said the marshal had Robert Flynn, 19, backed into a corner when they caught up with the pair Tuesday evening.
Chased him down and then beat his ass while waiting for backup. Well played, Marshal. Now, a few things to consider. This woman is a trained US Marshal, yet she did not injure the suspect. She ran him down and cornered him, and then he charged her, but fortunately she was able to subdue him.

Honestly, she got lucky. He's a dumb kid. He towered over her - at 6'4" and (judging from his pic) 200+ pounds, had her significantly outclassed at 5'5" (and what I would imagine to be considerably lighter, if she's out jogging and was able to run him down). Had he really been malicious, or been able to get out of his own way, he could really have hurt her.

And yet there are those out there that think we should deal with someone twice our size with harsh language alone...

That is all.

Could have gone deadly, like it did with Florida Wildlife Officer Peggy Park in a strikingly similar situation [www.clarkprosecutor.org/html/death/US/grossman1195.htm ].

I, of course, was entreatied for the various "clemency for Martin Grossman" campaigns. I hate to see a nice Jewish boy go to the gurney, but, knowing that he had brutally killed a law enforcement officer who was blowing the whistle on him for having a stolen handgun while out of jail on probation, I wasn't signing onto the clemency thing. There does come a point where society needs to stop its bad investment in rehabilitation, and this guy had gotten himself well beyond that point.

I did take flak for it, but my rebbitzin, who subsequently became aware of Grossman's history, later conceded to me that my declining to subscribe to the petition she was circulating was not inappropriate.

Good for her, but as one of the "special" people whose 2nd amendment isn't constrained by state law, I would recommend that she carry at all times.

This dumbass, asshat, shitferbrains screwed up BIG TIME.

But stop for a minute and think about the original crime here - basically a kid's prank. Not defending it, but if he'd done this to some woman who wasn't a federal LEO and who he could have outrun, it would have remained, essentially, an adolescent prank. He was old enough to know better and we all have to pay for our misdeeds, but...

Do you think for a moment the Pittsburgh police would have bothered trying to track him down?

Now he's in a serious world of hurt.

Well, at least there wasn't any "Hate Crime" done by the Marshal.

Though, come to think of it, how come the Radical Feminists aren't having a Rally and Street March against such Blatant Sexism?

And how come the DOJ and Eric Holder aren't opening an Investigation against the Perp?
