Trump Supporter Sucker Punches Black Protester In The Face

The protester, not the assailant, was quickly wrestled to the ground and arrested.

So... this happened last night in Fayetteville, NC. Apparently the assailant was never arrested either. Shaun King at the NY Daily News and local law enforcement (rather than the rent-a-cops at the event) are asking for your help in finding this guy.

Multiple videos show a protester at a Donald Trump rally in North Carolina being sucker-punched by a Trump supporter.

The videos, which appeared on social media early Thursday and are shot from different perspectives, show an African American with long hair wearing a white T-shirt leaving the Trump rally as the audience boos. He is being led out of the rally by men in uniforms that read “Sheriff’s Office.” The man extends a middle finger to the audience on his way out.

Then, out of nowhere, the man is punched in the face by a pony-tailed man, who appears to be white, in a cowboy hat, black vest and pink shirt as the crowd begins to cheer. The protester stumbles away, and then is detained by a number of the men in uniforms, who handcuff him while he is on the ground.
