Oh, Well, That Explains It

[Trigger warning for violence.]

Tim Profitt, the fuckhead who stomped on activist Lauren Valle's head Monday night, explains that the whole thing is just a big misunderstanding:
In the video, it appears to some that 23-year-old Lauren Valle is wrestled down to the ground by Rand Paul Supporters and then stomped on.

But to Tim Profitt, the the situation is much different. He says what the video doesn't show is Valle's aggressive behavior. Profitt says she rushed Paul's car three different times; each time refusing to stop. He says at the time, he didn't know what she was trying to do.

"We thought she was a danger; we didn't know what she was doing."

Profitt explained that he used his foot to try and keep her down because he can't bend over because of back problems.

..."If she can hear this, all I was trying to do was hold her until police could get her."
Yeah, see, except the police don't arrest people who haven't done anything wrong, which is probably why even though they were "alerted" to Valle's presence, they chose not to physically attack and restrain her, unlike some other violent dipshits I could mention.

And, seriously, dude, I know from terrible back problems, but I also know a fucking curbstomping when I see one. Get real.
