According to the alleged victim, a man approached her Wednesday night at an ATM in the city's East End, put a blade to her neck and demanded money. After she gave him $60, the man "punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, and he continued to punch and kick her while threatening to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter." The woman also claimed that the attacker "called her a lot of names and stated that 'You are going to be a Barack supporter,' at which time he scratched into her face a backward letter 'B' on the right side of her face."
If this is true, this is ridiculous. It is an election, not a revolution.
*** Apparently, the woman's allegations were not true. She was apparently a frustrated McCain campaign volunteer who made up the story of this in a politically inspired attack. There is no such place in our system for false accusations or violence. ***
